    What infuriates a lot of men is women prancing around claiming that they're independent and then marrying government and still believing that they're independent and not dependent upon men.

    2. Luckily for all of us, YOU don't get to choose a life path for anyone but yourself.
    But you get to vote and through the vote enslave men into supporting "independent" women who have married the government.

    You certainly DON'T have the right or authority to make life choices for ME, and for that, I am very grateful.
    Women should take the medicine that you're dishing out here. As a group they are one of the largest supporters of Big Government and of income redistribution, but women who are married are way less supportive because they see how this female dependency on government actually harms their own family by ripping resources away from their children and sending those resources to "independent" women who don't rely on men.

    Right and wrong...very black and white.

    You are living together in the same domicile.....is that a chaste relationship until marriage?

    All kinds of people do that. You have to get a kick out of it. It is also perdictable that women would support a bigger government and more wealth redistribution since they are more collectivist minded. These days women are trying to act all individualist, but very few of them hold up to it. I'm not blasting them for it or anything since it's really just in their nature.

    It's the hypocrisy of it all that rankles though. "I am woman, hear me roar" and then they marry the government.

    Maybe for you. It's interesting that you think your own experience, that while not exclusive to you, applies to everyone.

I definitely intend to focus on the relevant area for my two boys and my little girl.
    And hence the start of women as doormats, women who stay in abusive situations struggling to be loved...because she's learned it's 'her fault' she's not worthy of love.

To be treated like a Lady, one must BE a Lady. If you choose not to BE a Lady, don't expect to get treated like one.
    Um, we sure can have our cake and eat it too. I have a good career in 'town', ride and shoot like a man, work side by side with them on their farms/ranches or mine....then get all cleaned up and treated like a lady. Act like one too...like to cook and get dressed up (to a certain extent....not the little black dress and pearls type)...take care of people when they are in my home, etc.

    And I am no exception in my social circle.....or among women where I work either...2 very different worlds...liberal and conservative.

    Yes we are living together and no the relationship is no longer chaste. It was until we moved in together last April, sixteen months into our relationship. Remeber, we're not playing by "Christian" rules. We believe that sex is reserved for committed relationships. Not necessarily marriage but committed, monogamous, long-term relationships.

    I have seen the true blackness in the human heart over the course of my life. A heart and a soul cannot be both dead and alive at the same time. You cannot have both love and hate in the same heart. I learned that a long time ago. Hatred is the stronger force, and the one I have embraced, as do almost all human beings

    LOL. I would suggest you don't have too many real Men in your 'town'. You're trying to live a double life, and no truly self-respecting Man would accept you as a woman. I come from a family where farming was the norm until a generation or two ago. Nowhere in that family did the women do most of the different types of work on the farm. Of course they did certain things, but most of the work was done by the Men.
