Inequities - II

Inequities - II



…..if men also bore children,

what shall be the count….


My mind wandered aimlessly, as it often does

What if men were equal in biology 

In procreating n caring without fuss

Now that would be really painful in present physiology 

OOOPS!!! would that change the course of history

    True, Suresh - it is a much deeper subject, but you got to the nub if it.

    Caring in this world would be a wonderful thing to bring to it Suresh.

    Could not agree more with these sentiments Suresh - hats off to you for attempting such a sticky subject as men bearing offspring and the result

    not really, role reversal - at most
    and most likely
    with that physical power, our ladies
    will have access to
    they would have curated a world
    with much more
    compassion and emotional intelligence;
    while us men
    would be just fine I think
    (though likely we would have discovered
    C-Section deliveries, a Lot Earlier - mercifully);
    and plus, we usually have no problem
    with 'grunt work', lol
    its the empathetic thinking - part
    that has us lost
    or so history - has seen fit, to bequeath...
    (a wonderfully quirky write
    thanks for sharing)
