To be happy, we must admit it

Fox News correspondent Suzanne Venker writes that to be happy, we must admit women and men aren’t equal.

The battle of the sexes is over. And guess what? No one won. Why not try something else on for size? Like this: men and women are equal, but different. They’ve each been blessed with amazing and unique qualities that they bring to the table. Isn’t it time we stopped fussing about who brought what and simply enjoy the feast?

I’m kind of curious about the “different but equal” line. The problem here is the obvious reference to U.S. apartheid under Jim Crow.  I’ve made an argument that men and women are different, but I’m wondering now if I’ve bought into the doublethink of different but equal. How can something be equal if it is not? That’s why I tried to specific civil equality

As an aside, here’s a post from Dalrock about why she divorced her first husband.

    I don’t know what sites or material these people read to where they actually think feminists believe men and women are exactly the same and should be treated exactly the same, but it’s beyond ridiculous. If they are going to criticize feminism, they should at least be sure about they are criticizing.
