Sexism and Neo-Feminism

This is my stand on sexism. Society should not be built upon the leadership of a person based on their sex, male or female. A society whose authorities are justified purely due to their sex is a society that does not optimally extract the potential out of its members.

Furthermore, the notion of a matriarchy is as sexist as a patriarchy. Even when the upper hand is given to females purely because they are females, it is the same sexism that exists when the upper hand is given to males because they are males and nothing more. Sexism is applied to both sexes, and by choosing matriarchy over patriarchy solely due to the leading figure's sex, sexism is applied nonetheless.

I believe that the best way to build a just and equitable society is to choose leaders based on their merit, regardless of their sex. This is the only way to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed.

A Meritocracy is the Best Way to Achieve Gender Equality

Society should not put people in leadership positions based on their sex. Instead, we should choose leaders based on their individual merits. This is the best way to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed.

There are many differences between men and women, but these differences are too general to generalize to the entirety of mankind or womankind. For example, men are generally stronger than women, but there are many women who are stronger than some men. Similarly, women are generally more nurturing than men, but there are many men who are more nurturing than some women.

Meritocracy is the best way to overcome these generalizations. In a meritocracy, people are chosen for leadership positions based on their skills, abilities, and experience. This means that men and women have an equal opportunity to succeed, regardless of their sex.

I believe that feminism is about achieving gender equality. However, I do not believe that feminism should be about condemning men for being masculine. Masculinity is just as valid as femininity, and men should be free to express themselves in whatever way they choose.

A world that is truly equal is a world where gender does not matter. In such a world, people would be judged based on their individual merits, not their sex. This is the world that I believe in, and I believe that meritocracy is the best way to achieve it.

Thank you for reading.
