Whenever we talk about sexism, more often than not, we only refer to male chauvinism wehn female is being treated as less capable. However, sexism can occur both way. When guys talk down the capabilities of women in certain areas, they are immediately labelled as sexists or MCPs. But, alas, when women, as often of it does happen, talk negative about men, those are no longer treated as sexist remarks. Unfair it seems, unfair it is, but "It's a fact." they will always say in a bid to defend themselves. Anyway, this is just a sidetrack of the main point of this entry.
Whichever side it happens, sexism is seldom good as it turns a blind eye to what the other sex can acheive. It simply disregards the strengths of the individual sexes.
Then again, there is this other group that always put equality of the sexes on the side of their mouths. If sexism is bad, then equality should be good, isn't it? Sorry, but I beg to differ.
Equality is just as bad, as it simply disregards the limitations or weaknesses of the individual sexes. There are bound to be differences between the two sexes. One sex is bound to be superior to the other in certain areas, though there are often overlaps. I am not saying that in certain field, one sex is always better than the other, but rather one of the sexes will definitely have a greater potential due to their genetic makeup. By thrusting themselves into a area when they have a natural limitation just to prove that they are equal, aren't they forsaking their potential in other areas. End of the day, they will wasting more of their efforts while acheiving less.
What is really important is that we recognize our own strengths and limitations in order to acheive our greater potential more effectively. The average people goes for equality. The smart ones will carve out an unfair advantage by exploiting their strengths and hiding their weaknesses.
Hi to the few who actually read this blog. Sorry that I was missing for such a long time. But not to worry, I will be back soon with more of my nonsense after 3rd June. Till then, have fun and continue to live.
When I was in Abu Dhabi, I played a lot of Solitaire on my laptop, because there were times where there was really nothing to do. I will always play the Las Vegas 3 cards format. My colleague commented that it is all about luck. No doubt to win, there must be luck involved as there will be situations where it is impossible to win. However, why is there a need to win everytime? Since the score are cumulative, during games where the cards are not as what we will like them to be, we should instead sought to minimise the losses by scoring as much points as possible, and wait patiently for a subsequent game that will allow us to make a killing. This is true about life too. Things will seldom be perfectly suited to our liking. Instead of quitting just because things aren't as what we expected, we should make the best out of what is available, get as much as we can from it, and always prepare ourselves to go for the kill when things are right.
