Ian Ainslie Posted almost 4 years ago How can we respect femininity? CONT...The definition of intelligence really covers a vast array of subjects - communication, abstract thought, planning, emotional intelligence, common sense, ect. Being a mother is defiantly highly valued, but just not highly recognized in our current cultural soup. On the flip side being a stay at home dad is even more socially stigmatizing. To answer your question is critical thinking. Take femininity out of the equation and replace it with humanity. The best way is to talk, share, and market the idea that intelligence is not as narrow as we measure it and discover & develop new ways to quantify and qualify that intelligence. Then feed that information to humanity with novelty to move past peoples egos and into their open minds.
