    What a man can do, a woman can do better?

    I was watching a programme on TV recently about a girl who lives with her grandma. Her life is much harder now that her parents have both passed away. Her grandma is a God-fearing woman who has very strong beliefs. She keeps her moral high ground intact and never puts herself in any questionable situation. Her grandma is not the only one with strong opinions though. Anna, the young girl, believes that women are much better than men. In fact, she has all kinds of posters depicting female superiority. She believes that a woman does not need a man in her life and can survive independently. Her grandmother has always encouraged her that she should strive to provide for herself and not on any man but Anna has taken the advice too seriously. So one day there's a very strong hurricane that travels around the area blowing everything on its path away. Lucky for the two, their house is made of stone so it is not affected by the wind. The gate is not so lucky as it is lifted and smashed into the compound. A few days later grandma calls Anna from her room and asks her to re-'install' the gate. The girl is very surprised and tells her grandma that it is a man's job. Her grandmother goes to her room and tears a poster from her room. She then walks up to Anna and shows her the part where "What a man can do, a woman can do better.'' Anna has nothing to say so she just looks at her grandmother...

    Not sure what the point of this is but I would like to say that there are jobs and there will ALWAYS be jobs better suited for men and better suited for women because we are both different. We need each other for our strengths and our weaknesses. Look at the animal kingdom for examples of how the sexes work. It is a no brainer.

    I'd have to disagree. Not to be some sort of anti-feminist, but this simply isn't true. Usually, what a whoman can do a man can do better. And that's no disrespect, of course there are things whomen generally are better at, but let's be honest, name one thing that the absolute best person at that specific thing, is in the first place. Nothing, right? Well, that might have to do with disrespect and the fact that whomen aren't really pushed due to the fact that they're "valued less" (which I of course not do).

    A topic like this was bound to show up eventually. It's controversial, but isn't that what Blue Heaven is about?

    Honestly, I think in most areas of this debate there isn't any clear answer. Of course, there's one that is which is physical strength. But everyone knows and accepts that, right? Well... wrong, sadly. I'm sure many of you know the young types who try to argue against logic. To most people it's an indisputable fact that men are physically more capable than women. It's why there are women's versions of many sports and shared sports like tennis are dominated by men. And don't get me wrong. My intention isn't to hate on women. It's just that some attitudes could potentially put lives at risk in the future, or already I guess.

    It's not just sports I'm talking about. There are countless activists who are trying to petition for equal military rights. (Usually white people, I'm ashamed to say.) The thing is, women generally aren't physically built for the battlefield. Optimal strength is paramount. More often than men, women will struggle. When one is wounded, who will have the strength to carry them to safety? But doing that will leave them open to enemy assault. Men will tend to favour protecting a woman over a man. That's just nature, and having a woman present at the front lines could screw with men's heads. Women were useful in the war, though. They were of course great nurses and nurses are always in high demand. They were also great code breakers in the World Wars. During wars women need to do what they're good at. They nearly always don't make good soldiers.

    One of my favourite topics is computers, especially the more technical aspects of video games. I wish I saw more women in the game industry. I tend to see them with art and marketing roles, which is all well and good, but I rarely see programmers. Most of the time if I brought this up I'd probably be told women have fewer privileges in the workplace. Regardless of that part of the debate, indie games are becoming more and more popular lately. You can start an indie business from home, so there's nothing holding back women from leading more ambitious pursuits and creating indie games. Why isn't it happening? While the "fact" that Ada Lovelace was the "first programmer" that's often spread about is actually a myth (she was mentored by Charles Babbage, the creator of the Analytical Engine... not to mention the Greeks built a computer way long ago!) she still played a vital role in technology. Women have been competent mathematicians and programmers, so I'm not sure why I don't see more of them. Sadly, a lot of women appear to feel that complaining about what's wrong is a better option than making tangible changes. Again, women of this board shouldn't feel offended by that statement. History has shown women have the brains to change technology (and make indie games!), but not enough are taking the correct action.

    I know this is a bit long and I've only really covered a chunk of the argument, but I've gotta bring up one woman I'm not a big fan of: Anita Sarkeesian. She gained a large following by complaining about how women are misrepresented in video games. I could agree with a few points even if on the whole I disagree, but nonetheless this is an example of what I'm talking about. Imagine if all the women who've been complaining in unison with Anita Sarkessian actually stopped complaining and started making games. That, my friends, is the difference between being regressive and being progressive.

    It is funny you mentioned more women being in programming. There are all kinds of things happening in the US to hell improve those statistics and get more women int he field. It is just not something that appeals to most women. It is tedious work and takes time, repetition, and mind-numbing dedication. I like playing video games and I enjoy learning how my computer works. Outside of knowing how to build one, I have no interest. As far as gaming goes I would rather be in a position of character development and art over the actual programming end.

    Also, Anita is horrible and makes women who actually want to get into this field look like morons. Women shouldn't listen to her, they should listen to themselves and do it for them. Not to just prove men wrong. No man is stopping ANY woman from being in gaming and game development.

    I see what you mean, and I probably should have clarified. I don't necessarily mean the more hardcore traditional programming that most people will think of. Nowadays the task is a lot easier thanks to software that acts like a middleman, like Clickteam Fusion, Construct, Game Maker and Unity. A lot of the most successful indie games were made with software like this which take the mind-numbing aspects out of the task while still giving you full control over how the game works. Sometimes people who use this software prefer to be called game designers, but it's all a bit ambiguous. So, I more so meant that I usually see women in more secondary positions. As important as nice art is, I think designing what the game is about and how it works is the most important task, and there are some male indie developers nowadays who handle every aspect of game development themselves—programming, art and music!

    There are a few transgender women, but they still have the brains of a man. Women are very competent writers but most indies lack the budget to make a game ambitious enough to warrant a more complex narrative.

    tl;dr: Game design and development is no longer the mind-numbing task it used to be. From what I've seen more women are great artists than men, which puts many of them in a better position to use game creation software and make video games.

    You just had to write an essay, didn't you? Well, it's true what you're saying. I believe that physical and pshycological strength are two entirely different aspects of strengths. When it comes to physical, men are usually better. However, when it comes to multitasking, whomen are apparently better according to lots of statistics. However, the thing is, as I stated earlier, the smartest person on earth, is a man. The fastest person on earth, is a man. The fastest swimmer in the world, is a man.

    That's just the thing though like I said, maybe women are afraid of opening up and showing their true potential. Or they're just simply not good enough, which I'm not saying as an insult. I know there's A LOT of girls that are better than me at a lot of things. I'm just saying that there might actually be some sort of biological different between the two genders.
