Equality doesn't necessarily mean Identicality
Our society today tends to preach equality between men and women. Which to me, is fabulous. The problem is our means to get there is a little off. A man can walk down the street without a shirt on. Society says thats unequal. So now it is legal for women are able to walk down the street shirtless. However this is not equality. The goal to be attained is modesty. And what it means to be a modest man is different than being a modest woman. It's like going to the hospital and demanding equality. Medical aid is the aim, and equality is desired. However if 2 patients have different needs, it would be unethical and illogical to treat them for the same illness. Like with men and women, we have different needs, and equality doesn't always mean identicality.
