No I don't think men and women were created as equals and I don't think that having one or two examples can justify women who say they are.
First and foremost, appearance. Women are very different from men, they are the fairer sex and they have a lot more natural beauty than men. Also men and women have different parts, so if you think they are equal then just open your eyes.
Then secondly, women are naturally better caregivers than men. They are nurturers by nature, they know how to care for the ones they love and in some religions it is believed that the man is the spiritual leader in the house but the children get their religious views from the mother.
Women are better at looking after things and taking care or necessities in the house. Men on the other hand are natural hunters, the breadwinners in the home. We are built to be physically more able to do work. We can take more strain and move heavier things.
If you disagree then why, for example, in sport do men and women compete separately? Because in the purest form of being at your physical peak men are better. Women can handle more pain than men and can apparently do multiple things at once.
Ultimately, if you are a woman in the workplace eventually you will abandon it to do what women were meant to do. Have children and be their primary caretaker. There is a reason women get five months maternity leave and men only get three days paternity leave.
There you have it. Just like the cave people did it is what still happens today. Women are caregivers and men are hunters. No argument. We don't want you to be equal we want you to be women, so stop trying so damn hard.
