What if men were the superior gender? Why should they get more pay though? Just because they have more to offer doesn't mean that they should get more benefits. I believe that everyone should be equal because although we have less to offer in some categories, in other categories we excel.
In general, women are treated differently from men. Although it does sometimes happen, men aren't mistreated as often as women. Whereas women are victims from a lot of men taking advantage of them. An estimated 1 in 4 women have been victims of sexual assault but only 1 in 6 men have been victims.
I don't think that these stereotypes are necessary at all. Just because one person is a little different from you doesn't mean that they should get treated differently for it and I think if we tried to make that clear, then maybe the class system stereotypes would go away.
I agree with when you say that people coming from rich families get more money, but I believe that there are some programs where the poor can get scholarships to college. What makes them at such a disadvantage in terms of college when compared to the rich students?
Another place there is a flaw in equality is in the sports field. It is always big news when a men's sports team wins, but women are hardly ever congratulated if they get a win for their team. No matter who is playing, women or men, if they are your sports team, they should be congratulated for it.
The United States has a class system for sure. Although we have come a long way from being discriminating, there is still some evidence to the segregation between different classes of people. They make these classes based on wealth and education among other things. Even scientists agree there is some evidence to these classes.
Everyone says that men are physically stronger, thus, women are already set up for discrimination and unequal opportunities. Because of women's lack of strength, they don't get some of the jobs, like a construction worker, that men can easily get. A lot of the time women are passed up because they are quieter and have more internal control which presents them, again, as weak and incapable.
