Therefore, I am of the opinion that justice demands not complete and utter societal acquiescence to equality of role, perspective, office, strength and weakness. Rather, I posit that justice demands that both women and men be treated with equity and love according to that psychological, historical, and biological basic integrity of being that is woven into the very fabric of gender itself. I do not mean to include in that fabric any sort of irrational prejudice that has been the opinion of some throughout history; such nonsense is not based upon reasonable psychological and biological grounds, but is at heart, fable, and an injustice. Therefore, with that perspective, I see as positive within the women's movement that which, while respecting rational and healthy gender difference within human society, seeks to effect a change toward the prevention of abuse, the freedom of a woman to hold commerce, to seek elected office, to function independently in the world without needing a husband to be recognized as a human person of equal dignity, and other like goals. Changes that still need to take place to establish equality for women would be along the aforementioned lines of respect for intrinsic and healthy difference in societal and familial life and heritage, while working to uproot prejudice not based in Reason or Truth or the essentials of gender, and to increase the special inherent dignity and worth which men recognize in women as unalienable, as well as fostering a living out of these ideals in a tangible manner."
