    For some posters, being able to make any assinine argument they can simply to counter another's point somehow makes them feel superior while all it does is mark them as devoid of independent thought. I've moved past them - I've got better things to do with my time.

    Wasn't the point of CJ's post and this is yet another distraction from the thread topic. Something you do with regularity. If you want to discuss the thread topic, go for it.

    This is all that needs to be said on the subject.

    You're not addressing my actual point so I'll see if you can answer it honestly in question form.

    Are the mother as caretaker and father as provider/protector stereotypical gender roles for women and men, respectively?

    You see something sinister and evil - I see it differently.
    Don't put words in my mouth.

    Like - they're impotent?

    Doesn't matter . . . anyone can be a father or father figure if they WANT to.

    I find it silly to imagine that men can be successful fathers and good examples if they're gainfully employed - whereas some imagine that women can't eb successful mothers and good example if they are gainfully employed.

    It's illogical . . . what makes the difference? Is it the breasts? (yes a bit of snide humor)

    They are traditional roles. What is wrong with it again?

    Btw, he combined provider/caretaker for the woman. Did you notice that?

    Never said there was. I said his statement was misogynistic. I said there are many old fashioned things that are bigoted. Do try to read more closely.

    Uh huh. Keep telling yourself that.

    Well, that's clearly why you're so involved in this issue. It sure isn't why I am.

    Look for the boobs. Biologically, that ought to tell you who should take care of the kids.
