Men have positives and negatives. Women have positives and negatives. They need to work together in order to succeed.

the positives and negatives are not pre-set per gender.
the positives and negatives vastly change per each person.

I was generalizing it the point of basically saying we're different.

I think both men and women are equally important, they just have roles or situations they are generally better at, generally being key. For example I would say women are generally better nurturers and in-stiller of basic knowledge into children, while men are generally better providers for the family simply because women hit prejudice, sexism and a glass ceiling in many jobs.

Men = Women, though not all see that. And this is just a broad generalization. I may be a male, but I am quite nurturing and I'm great with little kids; I picked this up from my mom since I spent so much time with her and got most of her personality.

As do men on some occasions, such as being nurses or being in fashion/design/etc with the automatic "he must be gay" thoughts.

Because that's how society raises them to be.

I didn't mention that, but I totally agree, roles are built in, for better or for worse.

True, but isn't it also somewhat innate? Genetic? I mean not everybody, I know girls who hate kids. I just presumed that women are naturally better at nurturing than men.

It seems to be more societal. In nature, sometimes males take their nurturing parent role more strongly, such as the penguin.

Okay now let's think for one moment. Let's just switch your gender for a moment. Just a moment. You were born into a body that has the ability to hold and deliver another human. Now just because you were born with a uterus and breasts, you are naturally better at nurturing them therefore you should only be a caregiver.
This has been the logic of man since forever. At least until equal rights and such started to appear. But even then equal isn't really equal.
Anyways. Would you like this label to be stuck to you just because of your body? Something you had no choice in deciding? What if you were a born leader, but since your a female you have ding dongs like the ones here telling you that you shouldn't be a leader because of some stupid game of telephone? "Well my second cousin had a female boss once and HATED her so obviously female leaders suck" Yes that is total, rational thinking. What if you wanted to pursue a career in, let's say, the automobile industry? When people think of cars and mechanics, they think men. But a girl can be just as interested in it if she wanted to, and she could be just as good as every other male in that area. But no one wants to hire a female mechanic because statistics say that males are better at it than women. So their goes your dream, flushed down the toilet. All because your were born a female. Imagine how devastating that could be to someone. Their lifelong hopes and dreams, gone all because
roles are built in, for better or for worse.

And just why do you think that is? Because once again
Because that's how society raises them to be.

Everyone's actions taught you that women are inferior to men in some areas. Just because guys can lift a lot of weight and do a lot of manual labor, they are supposed to be better. Well, this may have worked when you needed manual labor to survive. Now everything is made by machines and you only need to press some buttons to make a thousand cars.
Technology has evened the playing field. You no longer need men to build your log cabin for you. You don't need them to go hunting for your food. We don't rely on men for the basic needs to survive anymore.

Calm down buddy, I wasn't insulting or putting the female gender down. I was just merely stating that men and women have presumed roles that aren't usually very flexible. mean, if a woman want to go into construction, I mean go for it, live your dreams. I'm just saying she'd be highly prejudiced against. And I'm also saying that women are typically better at certain tasks than men are ad vice versa. Nothing sexist. If a man wants to nurture kids, go for it. Just that GENERALLY women are typically better at it.
