While here in the states, all that has been lost. Everyone wants to, not be equal, but the superior gender. Women don't want to bow to men, and vica versa. What women's attempts to find equality has done is inflamed the feminist to not just be satisfied with equality but to strive for superiority. This has sparked a gender war which has been going on for decades. No one wants to concede or even comprimise for a middle ground. It's all or nothing, and so this battle will never end.
* I reckon that's a pretty good synopsis.
* Though I feel it is very difficult to say that the men want to subordinate their women. It isn't so simple. Women are valued and protected and allowed a wider variety of tolerance than men generally. Women who can do a man's job like truck driving or managing, who are good at their jobs are accepted because of their ability. But women are not expected to be as strong as men or to have their generally superior sense of spatial awareness - which would make them suitable for driving jobs.
* And I think Japanese women know well that it's the man who is the head --- but it's the woman who turns it. ie - there is a happy medium that most can comfortably live with.
The Feminazis did try to make inroads here but it didn't work. The women overwhelmingly rejected it. And women who were conned by (esp) US Fems found themselves ostracised, alone and unhappy. Men aren't interested in tough females except in special circumstances.
* One thing the US-style man-haters did here in Japan was to make children believe that men and women were exactly the same as far as strength and intelligence goes, and it is only the difference in education and physical excercise which made the differences in the sexes so striking.
- Of course I was a little surprised and also saddened to hear a teenage girl here tell me girls were as strong as boys. I told her that a few girls were as strong as the weakest boys, and that one of the reasons boys are stronger than girls is that even from the moment of birth the boys have bigger hearts and bigger lungs. The education system apparently tries to tell all children there are essentially no differences between men and women other than our 'nads.
Men and women are not the same at all either physically or neurologically. Neither has the monopoly on everything and we need each other.
