I am neither a theorist, nor an extremist, nor a feminist but a human being born as a woman. And there's no denying the fact that woman is the weaker species, weak in their brain, weak in their heart, weak in their strength. Most of them dominated by men almost everywhere. Few are those who can dominate men...(kudos to them)! If you ask me if I want to dominate men, I would say no! Saying no to this doesn't mean I want to be dominated, by men or by anyone (I have a clause "conditions apply" for domination)...I am talking about striking a balance, harmony between one human being and another.
The tendency to lean on, the need to be supported and be protected are ingrained in women's psyche since time immemorial. These deep-seated signs of weakness would be really hard to uproot. On top of these, sprinkle some tradition, culture, and values (pertaining to woman only)...how much burden a woman has to bear on her tiny shoulders (a size-zero-woman's shoulder would definitely crumble under these immense weight)!
And the men's psyche has been conditioned to provide a shoulder for the women to lean on, to support and protect them (For God' sake, anomalies are bound to happen...there's are billions and billions of people on this earth! And Of course, I am no expert in this).
Is this the way God/Nature intended? (I wonder how it all started...I couldn't help but imagine a world where the role has been reversed!)
If this was the way God intended, then He should have made the weaker species mute...letting them suffer in their voiceless misery. But no, God gave them voice! Is it too much to ask for a little bit of freedom, equality, justice, and respect for the weaker species? Although their brains, heart, and strength might be weak, they have the willpower to endure anything and continue their existence on this earth...
Even though men may be stronger species, they cannot exist without the weaker species!
