    Re: How We Raise Our Daughters - 21st Century [W:87,158,368]

    If fate were to bring me together with someone that I later had children with, then I would likely raise my daughter no different than my son. I didn't select this because it is likely misleading to read. Essentially, it would be similar to the way my mother raised me. My mother never forced a belief or gender role on me. I actually owned a Barbie when I was three (although I wanted it just so I could play with some girl at daycare and then destroyed it afterwards). Point being that I was raised to think for myself and just be who I am. That's how I would go about raising daughter and son

    I think 35 year old women look better. Kids just don't turn me on, and that's what a 15 year old girl is.... A kid.

    We should make sure not to instill the madonna/whore dichotomy in them. It helps no one and does tremendous damage.

    Just because you agree with less people doesn't mean society is worse... As a whole we are continually progressing into the future, we have problems of course but freedom is experienced much more now than back then and isn't that what America is about?

    Wow. That's right out of the 1800s. Where is the part that describes her money making ability, which is necessary either as half of the adult household or as a sole provider for her family? Where is the part that describes her financial acumen and frugality with a dollar, which can make the most of the money she has? As well as provide for her senior years, when she will be alone. Where is the part that describes her sports abilities and physical fitness, enabling her to teach her children sports, participate with them, and enrich her own life through physicality and health? Where is the part that describes her skills in being a good friend and maintaining friendships over the years, enriching her life and enabling her to live a longer, happier life?

    Her family is important. But there is so much more to a human being than that one part.
