Day to day stuff that we don't immediately attach to..

Stuff around:
- expectations on appearance, and role
- the assumptions about looking after our little ones
- keeping wider family connections going
- having a clean/civilised home to live in
- the costs of basic make-up
- the 'requirement' to be sexy
- the demand to remain 'safe' (when do blokes wander around concerned
about being sexually assaulted?)
- talking to our girls about periods and hormones
- that what is going on in their heads isn't necessarily about us
- how what they say may well be 'gender-defined' to the audience.

Not a comprehensive list (add your own)...but IF we ever have a chance of being in an 'equal position' are these things really beyond us to appreciate??

I don't understand your post at all.

Same as Bertie. Not a clue.

Curious as to the OP's point.

What are you on about?

I think the OP is saying what things do men need to realise women have to think about before they (men) can get a true appreciation of what equality would mean?

yet, most of what the OP posted is applicable to men as well.

but I wouldn't want to "mansplain" or turn the thread in to "what about the menz"
