It is not the way you think, it is not the way of Buddhism

Gender discrimination if not Buddhism
When the Buddhist philosophers at some point describes male as the superior by birth and female as inferior, in current mindset it is wrongly taken in the lines of gender discrimination. 

I would like to argue that this does not at all relate to any thing near to the issue of gender discrimination. Buddhism is based on equal rights for all sentient beings. It does not discriminate. If it does, it distinguishes all that exist into four noble truths, so that it is clearer for any one who wishes a proper choice.   

It is therefore, when it talks about difference of birth hierarchy, it is a comparison of the doors of suffering that distinguishes which gender by birth is more susceptible to suffering.
