    Thanks for having my back.

    First it was archaic. Now its mysogynistic. Heck, it must be plain politically incorrect which makes it morally wrong.

    And they are not misogynistic. You were just told they were, but no, they are not.

    Uh huh. Keep telling yourself that.
    That was what occurred.

    Well, that's clearly why you're so involved in this issue. It sure isn't why I am.
    I'm not the one bitching about what someone said as if it matters.

    Your statement was an absolute statement. I don't really care for one exception in this case.

    I'm gonna guess a few people here at DP think this train of thought hits a big nail squarely on the head.
    Great. Another idiot telling human beings with vaginas that their vaginas are their only source of worth. Just what we needed.

    We need more people who are invested in their gifts and ambitions, whatever they are. We need parents who actually CARE about their role, and we need career people who CARE about their role.

    We need people who care about ethics more than money, whatever the cost and whatever the embodiment.

    And we need people like this to be labeled as what they are: people profoundly fearful of having to compete with people with vaginas.

    I can only hope there were no girls in that audience who were vulnerable enough for this petty man to break their spirit. But unfortunately, I know I am probably hoping against the odds. Another girl with a gift lost to the world.

    And perhaps, a boy as well. There are men with a gift for the home life as well.

    meh its true either way. Anyone who strives to better themselves in any form of employment is ambitous, certaintly more ambitious than an employee who remains in the same position or a stay at home parent. Choosing to remain at home all your life is great and traditional but its not very ambitous.

    That is just your opinion.

    That's not what he said though. He said being a parent would be the most important thing you ever do with your life no matter what you do. And it is.

    Why? Do they serve a reason biologically other than to attract men and turn off portions of their brains?

    OMG, I almost forgot, they are the method nature provided to feed infants. Strange that men don't get that ability, or is it that biology is telling us something?

    Well, no. He encouraged women to be stay at home moms and men to be the protectors and providers. If his message was as simple as "being a parent is important", then he wouldn't have supported it by telling people to occupy stereotypical gender roles. He would have told the men that they should also consider staying home and told the women that they should also consider being the protector and provider.
