I agree 100% with this assessment. I am good at math. It has always come easy to me. There are many people for whom it is NOT easy. For them, it is hard work. Are we equal? Not as far as math is concerned. I'm superior to many others. Certainly those not good at math can work really hard and achieve the same results, but does that make them equal?Something I ran into on Google news. I'm not in agreement with it but I'm sure there are people here who are. Short-sighted and narrow-minded is what I think it is.
Here's an excerpt:
"But the truth must be heard. Being equal in worth, or value, is not the same as being identical, interchangeable beings. Men and women may be capable of doing many of the same things, but that doesnít mean they want to. That we donít have more female CEOs or stay-at-home dads proves this in spades."
There are people who are extremely persuasive. They can sell ice to an Eskimo. I, on the other hand, could not sell water to a man in the dessert. A good salesman might be able to sell product A in 5 minutes just cause it comes naturally to him. If I spenda week working on someone and finally make the sale, am I equal? Hell no.
People excel at different things. That being said, I fully agree that being equal in worth does not mean we are interchangeable beings. What about this do you disagree with?
