    the problem with this is that the panels would be damaged by weather, and the traffic of cars over them. It would never work unless you could design a panel harder than the current pavement material (seeing as roads fall into disrepair very quickly, and solar panals would cost way more).

    Now I am not against gender equality however this begs the question. What are we trying to achieve? Should men stay at home? Should we hire more migrant labour to take care of our kids so that our wives can have careers? Everyone shouts gender equality and yet we are not biologically equal. Only women can give birth, if men could then gender equality would be none existent. In another ~200 years its likely we'll still be where we are now, talking about something that can't really be fixed because biology has a big role to play. Lets be honest, a majority of women want to be mothers in the same sense that a majority of men want to be fathers, family aside one can still have a career unfortunately most of the child rearing is done by women and not men and most of this is because of biology not just because men are evil or whatever people may think.

    I think that you are, in fact, against gender equality. We are equal, we just have different roles to play. And not just men vs. women, all people have different roles. Men can rear children just as well as women can. They just can not give birth (ask any woman, she would gladly give up the birthing to the men if she was able). It is not biology that supports your bias, just your own misogynistic preconceptions. Men have an equal part in the child's genetics, therefore the man should do generally half the work of rearing the child. No,men aren't evil. Only the preconceptions of men like you are.
