The weaker sex is a myth

The weaker sex is a myth in its normal context, it was probably coined by weak men who thought that by speaking the words, it would make them real. You guessed it, the weaker sex normally refers to women.

But, if you’re going to judge people based on one attribute, then yes, men, as a rule are physically stronger than women, however; If you judge people based on empathy, you’ll find the result swings in the opposite direction.

In reality, the weaker sex can be attributed to any individual who uses their physical or mental attributes to get what they want at the other person’s expense.

Men and women have used this method for as long as the two species have coexisted, however, the relationship between the two is in a constant state of flux as the roles traditionally chosen by each gender has changed such as.

Nursing has traditionally been associated with females, that’s not the case today because a lot of men are choosing nursing as a career choice.

In the past the business world was predominantly a male environment but today, nobody’s surprised to hear the CEO is a woman.

Just to clarity, the weaker sex was always a myth. If you need proof? Ask any strong woman. (Maybe your mother.)

I’ll leave you with one final thought.

Your mental strength will survive long after your physical strength has diminished.
