    This sounds like you're saying that you're a chick.
    Saying that one is an athlete and a scholar is like saying one is a chick? Okee Dokee...


    Here you tell us that you're a dude. Knowing that you're a dude completely undermines the argument about women jocks that you made above. And terrific for you that you're a good looking dude.
    No idea what any of this means...

    I hope it was obvious that I was being sarcastic... I have daughters and think no such thing.

    Even though you prefer that women be nothing more than slaves in the home, catering to a man's every stupid whim, you'll just have to deal with the fact that women AREN'T stuck in such a miserable existence for the rest of their lives. At least not in the United States, unless a woman has the worst luck in the world to end up married to a guy who is stuck in the 12th century or earlier where women are concerned. Thank goodness that will NEVER be me.

    That's my mistake. You didn't quote what you were responding to and I now see that it was the particular charge of women should not be attracted to jocks. I thought it was a response to how women should be raised. Never mind.

    It's important to raise our daughters independent and strong but more importantly to raise our boys to not think just because he is a boy gives him special place.
    I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them. All I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me.

    I know. I was playing along. Should have thrown in a wink I guess.

    Probably the opposite. Culture is now so drenched in "girl power" that family should be a countervailing force for the promotion of boys.

    Happiness never has been, nor is currently, been beyond my grasp. My parents experienced in abundance...highs and lows in life, in almost 60 yrs of marriage...that is pretty normal. But great happiness for sure. As for myself, the same.

    I'm not sure if you believe your interpretation applies to the general population or just yourself, so please be aware....it's most certainly much more widespread than you believe.
