    Yeah, well, Jerry Falwell can bite me.

    Lewis Black on that (paraphrased): "Oh REALLY! I guess God looked down and saw the kitchens empty and the seasoning racks disorganized and said 'I will smote them!' Jerry Falwell says God told him this. Well, that's funny, because I was talking to God on the phone the other night... and he said it was because of people like Jerry Falwell."

    If my husband can bear the children for me, I'll gladly take on the mopping as well...that being more heavy duty than vacuuming the floor. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    The point is, women ask for equal rights. Not to be equal to men. I have no problem with being the weaker sex, not being able to do heavy lifting and exert brute force. Men are just physically stronger and we can't change the fact. I know that 'cos I was flung across the room when my husband pushed me. For fun!! lol

    Being a chinese girl, I have been given more rights than a lot of women in the world. Right to talk back to my parents (with reason, of course), right to choose whom I want to love and marry, right to say yes and no, right to wear revealing clothes... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    And the stumbling blocks to my career are women who do not have the confidence in themselves. They believe in bad-mouthing you and making you look really bad 'cos they can't be any better. Thank goodness my boss is a male now. To be fair, not all female superiors are insecure idiots. I have got very good mentors that are always ready to give me a push. And even for me to step on their shoulders to move up.

    But generally, more women make life difficult for other women than men. In my society, at least. Maybe less so in other countries? *shrug*

    You know, Caps, you're right. Women are perfectly capable....Beleive me, I FIGHT with some on a weekly basis. However, the point about instinctively protecting them....While I'm not sure it's INSTINCTIVE, more like learned, it is never the less true. Solution: All female units.

    You obviously have never met any women from New York! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] Those very qualities in a woman are VALUED by many men around here. Many of us NY males like "stong" (read: oppinionated and not afraid defend that oppinion) women. My wife, in fact, is quite tough. She doesn't cuss all that much (I try not to give her any reason to [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] ), she's not afraid to let fly if the situation demands it.

    And she's got one heck of a right cross....

    There are some women I'd LOVE to see in combat! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Last summer we hired a 50-ish woman at the lab. I had an opportunity to alk about stuff with her and she told me that she absolutely hates working with other women - that cattiness, etc...

    My wife told me about how junior high girls do this "shunning" thing when they don't like another girl. Whereas boys will just beat up another boy, physically, in the bathroom, girls beat other girls emotionally.

    Earlier this weak I read an article about how 4 year old girls have the capability of doing the shunning things as well. Now that's scary!

    Of course all of the are tendencies and not absolutes. For instance, the girls & women on this forum tend to be different than the stereotypical mainstream, much less stereotypically feminine - dare I say, "boys in girl's bodies".

    The guys are just glorified sadists. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Um.. So are some of the girls! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    I know, Schloaty. But I was referring to most of the population.

    Darla is wonderful to work for and is one of the best boss's ive had in awhile. she is fair but if you dont pull your weight she will throw you out on you rear. course she has always been "one of the guys". she goes out drinking, fishing and hunting with me and my buddys. she also likes beating the snot out of my lil bro when he is being a pain(he is twice her size, hell he is bigger than me even if he is 9 years younger).


    Schoalty, all female units huh? never thought about that. after carefull consideration i think its an excellent idea. for that one week every month they would be the most destructive force the military has ever seen....... *ducks for cover*

    My personal observations, and those of my wife from her time working in a company of mostly women, indicate that a woman's biggest problem in the office is having a female manager.
