Inequality is not the same as unfairness. For example, small children are not the equals of adults. There is no unfairness in that. On the contrary, try to imagine the disaster that would ensue if three-year-old children were expected to earn their own living.
True, we are all equal in many respects, particularly in regard to our God-given rights (which are different from the contrived rights invented by the social left). But there are also many inherent inequalities among people — so many as to make it obvious that we cannot reasonably hope for equal outcomes. This is patently true of the sexes. It always has been, and despite the cruelest efforts of the left, it always will be.
There is nothing that can be done to make the sexes equal. Indeed, attempts to do so have actually made matters worse for both sexes, especially for women.
Let's be clear. This commentary is not a set-up for a sexist manifesto. Far from it, it is a call for true fairness — fairness to both sexes, fairness that provides for the greatest fulfillment of each individual life.
Again, it is necessary to depart from the myth that the sexes are equal. Yes, there is considerable overlap in our abilities, in our emotions, and in our intellects. There are also, however, many good and natural differences.
Most of these differences used to be recognized, both in the general culture and in law. That the distinctions have considerably faded was largely brought about by technology, which in turn was reflected in cultural norms, much of which is for the good. Unfortunately, the social left seized upon the changes to enact, into both law and culture, the absurd ideology that sexual differences are at best irrelevant and at worst an injustice to women.

I’ll agree that women are equal when they can put out a campfire without using their hands or feet.
“It is the greatest inequality to try to make unequal things equal.”-Aristotle
“The reason why a guy gets paid more per hour than a woman to do the exact same job is because in the unlikely event that we’re both on a Titanic and it starts to sink, for some F***ed up reason, you get to leave with the kids and I have to stay.” - Bill Burr
I wouldn’t even use the world “inequality.” Its a leftist construct and supremely anti-scientific.
Nearly every species on earth above the level of protozoa engages in sexual reproduction for very clear reasons of survival and adaptation of the species.
Its a process of COOPERATION, not competition, oppression or whatever stupid social theory leftists are promoting.
A womans job is never done. That is the reason they make less
It’s amazing how there are people who still believe the “wage gap” lie. At this point, they cannot be reasoned with. They are stupid and a liability for society.
He adds "especially for women" so as to have permission for attacking equality.
Wishy-washy conservatives often do this. Their rational for attacking liberal policies is because the policies are "especially harmful to blacks (or women, or immigrants, or Latinos, or gays ...).
God forbid that we should oppose a policy because it's especially harmful to straight, white, Christian men.
“Inequality is not the same as unfairness.”
To the left equality and fairness are one and the same.
Their insane and unreachable goal of equality is what drives them.

From Kurt Vonnegut “Harrison Bergeron”...
“The year was 2081 and everyone was finally equal”
Sounds like the world the left is dragging us into kicking and screaming.
Why do differences need to be eradicated? Why not appreciate them instead?
If I wanted to marry a woman, I’d marry one. I DON’T want to marry a feminized man.
FROM A FR READER:
“Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.” ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“The only stable state is the one in which all men are equal before the law” – Aristotle
“The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.” – Aristotle
vive la différence
What he found was that both the men and women interested in CS had high math scores on standardized admission tests. However, the women had significantly higher verbal test scores than the men.
He quickly realized that because the women had high verbal scores, many other courses of study were available to them, so fewer chose CS.
He was promptly sacked, of course, when he presented his findings.
The Uniparty Swampocracy reads that as a how-to manual.
As a female, I always applauded the sacrifice of the Titanic males as they allowed women and children into the lifeboats first.
My wife says she doesn’t want equality. She says she enjoy the pedestal I placed her upon.
“From Kurt Vonnegut “Harrison Bergeron”...”
You are dating yourself with that one.
You’d get zotted if you even wrote the title of the collection ‘Welcome to the Monkey House”
“He was promptly sacked, of course, when he presented his findings.”
Never, ever should facts, research, logic, or reason inconvenience the advancement of the narrative for the good of the preferred portion of the population.

Please, someone post a scientific treatise on all of the difference (both anatomical and genetic) between men and women. Stop arguing on semantic or cultural differences( those are fluid concepts). Hint: wikipedia has a decent, if not exhaustive summary. I am sure Grays anatomy would be much better, and graduate level neurology, endocrinology, genetics, and biochemistry textbooks would be helpful also.
Enough of the, “I mutilated my genitalia to look like what I think reflects my gender identity” therefore I am transformed. Pure ignorance of the marked differences between the sexes.
The sad thing is that his story is even more applicable today than it was back in the 60s.
2081 isn’t that far away.
