    Ok that's why I said "partners" and not "marriage". It's just hypocritical people always say oh 2 parent families are so good and blah blah blah but don't apply that to all 2 parent families. Has nothing to do with gay marriage- we are discussing families. Can you understand that now?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Do you have sons? If so, tell you sons.

    You'd think it would be to find a path in life that they love. Or that they choose their friends wisely. Or that they always be honest with themselves. Nope, the most important thing is to be a proper breeder. Because that's what women are for, right? Marriage and babies. You don't say "be careful with sex, use protection, and choose your partners wisely", you couch it in an antiquated female duty to marry and reproduce. Even if you mean well, and I actually think you do, you're still reinforcing the system that keeps women subservient. You shouldn't do that to people you love.

    That depends on their ambition, we're not interested in outcome based results. They must achieve it. Can they achieve it, of course! Will they achieve it (like men have to)? It depends on them. Just remember there is no lifeline for men, if they don't achieve they fail. There is almost no chance (or very little) for men to marry up. Why is that? Two big reasons 1) successful women don't tolerate losers, and 2) there aren't enough successful women around who make that much more. Many men are even willing to be the sole bread winner, how many women do you know that will do that? I challenge you to find one, my guess is they are extremely rare. I don't care how progressive she is, women expect men to provide.

    Women getting married to a good hard working man and having kids = subservient?

    I'm not seeing your logic there
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    I'm sad that I have to point out to you that I was making a joke. Your response indicates that you aren't really reading the thread.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    This percentage is rising fast and will become an increasing burden on social welfare programs and entitlements in the future.

    This is exactly what is crippling America's black community and keeping it from participating in the American dream. And it is exactly what Democrats prey on for their voting base. Minorities, struggling single mothers, and the possible influx of suddenly legalized illegals, and the socialized state of America will be set in concrete. The numbers will be too great for the bootstrappers and real 'pillar' Americans to ever lead again.

    What a sad, needy, dependent country this has become.
    I would never want to be married to a woman who makes more than I do. Too weird.

    The points were made on MSNBC this morning by Lisa Brzezinski that one huge reason for this is women are getting paid less then men and so they become the illegal alien types. One would think more women in the workplace is justice but is it simply another way to get more for less. How old is women's lib and the suffrage movement? What a joke and it's being played on women.....still. This is in line with pushing kids to graduate high school so they can enjoy a career in fast food.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
