John — well, for me gender equality is all about respect and respect at all levels!
Maria Gilbert (Nirvana)

In among all the words, the issue that causes a lot of problems is that sexual difference is too easily conflated with unfairness and injustice. As soon as anyone anywhere has anything that someone else does not have, it is too easy to cry injustice.

By that principle, the entire world population suffers injustice, and so everything needs sweeping aside and we need to start afresh. This is just silly.

Variety is not just the spice of life, but utterly inevitable. As you say, respect for the other — no matter how different they appear — is the foundation stone of a worthy social approach.

Thank you for your kind wishes. May your kindness be rewarded.
