    Do I have to get a sex change operation now, because I also support the right to choose?
    Sadly, I don't. I can only support it if the woman is in danger. I can't bring myself to support more, sorry. As for legislation, I have thought about it plenty over the years and the more I think of it the more I'm convinced that is a bad idea so I don't really care to fight for such a thing, but I can't support the act either, sorry.

    S'rly, Henrin: you should eavesdrop on a Republican Ladies' Luncheon and then tell me, all American women have some defect in their voting that all American men do not share.[/COLOR]
    Well I never said men don't share the same views because its pretty clear many of them do. I was just talking about in general how I think women approach politics and why I don't really agree with it is all. Many men approach it a similar way and perhaps exactly the same way but the angle they go about finding that view is drastically different. Perhaps you're different Pinkie or perhaps I'm just wrong about my observations, who knows. Still, I'm not inclined to say such a thing outright. I have done a great deal of reading posts of women on this forum and talking to women IRL about politics and I don't feel great about where they are coming from to form their arguments and I don't like what it usually means to their overall argument.

    As for republican women, I don't know what to say about them.

    There are no reliable generalizations that can be made about American women voters, Henrin, anymore than there are about American male voters. Nobody votes with their gonads, not even us "overemotional" girlie types.

    Tigger, this is either a massive joke or a severe mental illness.

    Have you ever told this blather to a doctor?

    I'm on record of being in favor of limiting voting to those who can demonstrate basic knowledge of our political system with a simple poll test. Simple stuff like "what are the three branches of government".


    As for women . Well, look what happened after we passed the 19th Amendment. Stock Market Crash, Great Depression, WWII, Communism.... I mean, it didn't go very well, did it?

    Yeah, but look at what we had before.

    Depressions, recessions, WWI, Communism... And slavery too.

    All that didn't go very well either.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    A paper on Tigger?

    He's an acolyte in search of a cult leader, would be my guess.
