    Hey you brought conservatives into it, I was just responding.

    I said conservatives are making a big unfounded deal out of this. Scientists haven't speculated on it being the result of changes social policies and attitudes. Conservatives have. That's why it's they who are making a big deal out of the matter.

    I don't think we're making a big deal out of this, I think we're just speculating. There's a difference.

For years women thought men had it made in this world simply because they had certain status advantages. Well there's a price for having that status, and it's not easy at all. And whether women still run the vacuum at home is irrelevant, because they still expect men to be men even if they make the same money and have more social status. It didn't get easier being a man just because life for women changed.

    And you're still a cutey.
    Life's not easy not matter what gender. It wasn't easy when we were stuck at home all the time and it's not easy now that we have other choices. And, hey, it's not easy for stay at home Dads, either. People always talk about feminazis bashing stay at home Moms. That's nothing compared to the scorn and ridicule other men place on stay at home Dads.

    And thanks.

    Word. My grand-aunt is 102 years old and is but a shadow of the formidable woman she used to be. Stuck in a wheelchair, almost totally deaf, she spends most of her days staring out into space and drooling. It's sad...

    Like it's women's fault that so many men are immature, so do not take any responsibility for their fatherhood?

    And in some cases that was the woman decision. In others, it was most certainly not her decision to go down that solitary path.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    On some days it rains. On other days it doesn't. What exactly is your point here? If the woman was not raped, she most certainly had plenty of input into that decision.
