    Women enjoy the same rights and oppurtunities as men in the U.S., it's really quite a nice place for either gender to live.

    No we don't - we have to speak in terms of a futeristic period and pregnancy free world before some guys start to entertain the notion that women should be able to do the same thing that men do.

    But does that mean we're amid some type of all-out 'war' - no, it doesn't: it means that I'm well aware of the fact that some obvious men just don't like women - a flat out obnoxious truth.

    It sure is wonderful when you can take what someone is arguing for, completely and utterly repurpose the reasons they are arguing for it and their thoughts behind it, present that repurposed dishonesty as if its the actual fact, and then use that repurposed dishonesty as the basis for insulting said group.

    There's no War on Women, but I sure as hell wish we could have a War on Hackishness

    No we talk in terms of you need to be physically able to do a job before you can do it. Please point out one case, just one where standards were not lowered for women when they have been let in to roles that require physical strength/endurance?

    Reality is a bitch ain't it.

    The only obnoxious truth here is your inability to except the reality of a situation and it is eating you alive.

    How does the ability to reproduce hamper women's rights and oppurtunities? It is a choice after all, not a predetermined fate.

    Well in her defense she was talking about women in ground combat units and the possibility of pregnancy as one reason for barring females from combat ground units.

    The whole rant is because of another thread here: http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...-military.html and has very little relevance in this thread.

    Hello

    I'm referring to a 'war on women' here with these statements as an overall notable mentality in general, broad terms.

    This is not the 'should women be allowed in the military' thread and I'm not going to discuss just that one thing here. Believe it or not: military issues are not the only time in which men bring our natural condition up as a negative . . . so I kept my comment quite vague in respect to the broader issues in which it's tossed out as a concern.

    And my post here, by the way - was not a rant. A rant involves emotion. I was being quite emotionless as I am now.

    You need to pretend you don't see it: some men (as I stated) don't have favorable views of women doing 'man' things - that's how it is . . . . like I said: does that mean our entire nation in a broader sense is having 'a war on women' - no. It does not. I can still see things in a larger sense - and divide the 'some' from the 'many'

    You can go back to the military-women thread and debate yourself all you want. I see no point in continuing banter with you - I have my view, you have yours. . . . and I was not bringing *that* up here - I was being quite broad with my reference. . .and you took it personally.

    (edit: and on this note - whenever I bring up *something* - I strongly urge you to try not to take things personally or assume it's said about *you* directly. If I want to get personal with you I will do so quite bluntly. You do not need to read all of my statements and assume I'm discussing you, something you said, or something we debated, and get upset.)
