    Re: Do you see men as your property?

    No. The spirit is free / or should be free! in all of us - and not meant to be constrained or tampered with by claims of property crap bull**** by anyone. That's my take on it, and I would never associate with anyone that looked at another human being as "property". That's disgusting.

    My take on it is to hold on to others "lightly" - thereby giving others the freedom to be themselves. Being responsible and accountable to / and for our own selves is immensely important. But wanting to take the reigns / or control / own another person, to my mind is "sinister". That's how I look at it.

    All people need to be autonomous. It's all very well telling one's partner that they have no autonomy, like I heard on another thread, but how damn inconsiderate and mean that is! Suppose the "owner" of the other persons autonomy dies... well, what a rude shock that'll be to the one who gave up their autonomy to the other! They'd have to learn autonomy quick-smart in that case - and that on top of having just lost their partner!

    In partnership, it's very important that both people are autonomous, capable, and in control of themselves. It is part of love... to know / and to want that the other will be okay / would be able to manage in the event that they lose us.

    The spirit is free. The true and unfettered spirit refuses property crap intervention from anyone. We are masters of our own souls, or even, our souls are masters of us... but another person claiming that we are their property... is absolute mindless bull**** lunacy.

    At the first sign of a strong possessiveness, jealousy, controlling behaviour of any kind, I'd be gone in a flash. An absolute turn-off, and a sign that the person's not in good psychological health.

    Re: Do you see men as your property?

    All this talk of spousal ownership has gotten me thinking about a western "tradition" that is slightly related, and could be used to make an argument of ownership.

    Engagement rings.


    Why the **** does a man have to get on his knees and beg and BRIBE his prospective bride into becoming his wife?

    Women don't have to humiliate themselves and prostrate themselves before their prospective grooms. Women need not bribe the man in order for the agreement to be reached.

    Doesn't this bribe instill the image that a women must be "bought" or "bartered" for?

    Why the hell doesn't the woman need to get on her knees and hold up a big screen TV and then beg for the MAN'S hand in marriage?!?!?!?

    (I say big screen TV because a ring ain't gonna do it for a man. He'll need something more useful and practical than the finger shackle.)

    Because he'd reach for the remote, turn it to ESPN, and then say to the woman "huh?"

    Does that really happen? Men beg and use a ring for bribery?

    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    My friend I mentioned in the other thread, is actually good at one thing and thats getting something he wants, where other men have failed to capitalize. For instance, he made a deal with his then girlfriend of 8 years, that he could buy a new set of golf clubs when he ask her to marry him, and when she pestered him for a baby, he got a big screen TV and a PS3 out of the deal.

    How else do you get a woman to agree to marry you?
