The proper relationship between men and women is one of equality and respect, just as it should be between any two people, no matter what their gender is.  Clearly, there are differences that must be acknowledged, but the only aspect of this that is limiting is that women can bear children and men cannot.  This should not affect at all the need for equality and respect.  Amongst men and women, there is such variability in strength, intellect, emotional intelligence, and other qualities that it makes no sense to allow the gender of a person to be part of one's judgment of that person or the relationship that ensues.
