My biggest fear is that eventually you will see me the way I see myself.

True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.

Kyriarchy in action.

Also the study where they had women and men talking in a discussion and when women spoke around 30% of the time, men perceived them as dominating the discussion. They didn’t consider it “equal” until something like 5-10% of women talking.

Voila. A beautiful example of why fighting for equality becomes a gross exaggeration in the eyes of the oppressors.

Do you love me enough that I may be weak with you? Everyone loves strength, but do you love me for my weakness? That is the real test.
