    It’s the crazy eyes of the sperm whales that I find particularly compelling.

    could this be that women are internally strogner than men?i didn’t mean on physical strength and mental capability, but in terms of inner survival drive. as looking back at what they face:women menstruation, first-time intercourse, pregnancy, give birth, labor bleed, child care, breastfeeding, housemaking, and . make money.ok and that’s not included sexual harassment, sex abuse yet. while for most cases,men make money. (only)*additional info taken from other source (edited)*Women have so much on their hands, childbearing, domestic affairs, housekeeping, multi-tasking, the burden of society’s taboos and perception of how to be a woman on her shoulders, the burden of childbirth, the disadvantage of not being able to have multiple partners without being accused of being promiscuous also doing the bulk of the work (and need to obey the husband as to maintain high-effective marriage) , women have also been regarded as more emotional, weaker, physically more fragile than men, stay at home, rear the children, do the cooking and in some societies, there are still cases where women are worthy of less rights than men are given.A woman’s job is 24/7, 7 days a week and a man’s job is 8 hours, 5 days a week.It is also statistically proven that women do 80 percent of the hard, manual labor in the world. (perhaps not including career activities yet)so it takes allot of strength to live with this.also, when it comes to victimization, women children are the preferred target compared to men. Yet many religions also state that women are the ones that are more and easier to be tempted by the evil forces.What is the justification for all this in nature, and why does men seem to be let off so easily?we often hear single-mother though, shows a woman can take care of her life and her children’s all by herself, but hardly listen single-father coz in most cases, single-father can’t stay that single much, where he needs to get a wife pretty soon to do all the things which he can actually do, but pretend he can’t. so, since women had been surviving pretty good under all these burdens and pains, could it be that women are actually made strogner at most points?
