    That's sexist ignorance. Maybe we should believe black people are less inclined, at least until you see proof otherwise?

    You do understand how presuming inferiority is sexist, right?



    It proves biological sex does not dictate personality.


    Congrats fam, you've had the "Sexism" card pulled on you. You must be pretty close to the truth.

    Actually if anything, society has conditioned you to be salty, so I can't really blame you, it's da big bad society that's determining your saltiness.

    I'm a hetero cis white male, so I get full victim status, right? You're bestowing upon me unlimited right to play the victim card and I get to declare everyone else's card invalid. I just wanna make sure I'm joining the right club.

    She never visited my house. My wife runs the family. She decides what we eat, when we eat, where we eat. She handles the money, approves all purchases, and assigns "honey do" lists. (However, I would never dare to hand her a "honey do" list). She is in charge of all social affairs, event planning and outings. She plans and directs vacations. While she doesn't usually buy my clothes, I do know what's expected of me regarding apparel. She picked out every stick of furniture that's in the house. Hell, she picked the house. At least she had final approval. BTW; she controls when we have sex, where we have sex and if we have sex. I usually determine how long it lasts......

    Red:
    Your "red" remarks are nearly a "chapter and verse" distillation of Islam's catechism regarding gender roles and the rights and duties of men and women.

    I'm not even remotely kidding. I think it safe to say that were you asked to write a high school essay for a comparative religion class or for a non-dogmatic aime class on Islam, you could literally begin your essay expressing "red" ideas and have a fine foundation for a paper that, if everything else you wrote were utter ****, so long as you didn't contradict those two opening sentences, you'd earn at least a "D" on account of having grasped that much -- it's that "spot on" -- about the nature of gender roles in Islam. In other words, that alone is enough to keep one from obtaining a failing grade....Not, by any means, the greatest accolade, but not bad at all for two sentences in a paper containing something on the order of 30-100 sentences.

    Men, in general, are better at some things than women, and vice-versa. However, we complement each other in wondrous ways. We will never, ever be equal; nor should we try to be. The more important realization is that we will always be equally important.
    If you believe that man is good, there is no need for government. If you believe that man is bad, you dare not create one.
