That is nothing but a feel-good, protest talking point. A kind of 'cheer'.

Nobody here is intimidated by strong women. The same people you accuse here most likely admire strong women like Margaret Thatcher and other women who can pull their weight like any man can (a firefighter, coal miner, oil rig worker, etc...). YOUR side wants to throw any random woman in one of these professions and FORCE the operation to slow down to make her 'equal'.

There are many areas where men and women are not 'equal'. To try and force that to be changed is reckless. Example, trying to get more women on the battlefield (and removing physically stronger men) just to 'prove' they are equal. That would be disastrous. Hey, let's force women in the NFL... tackle them and you 'beat up on women', right?

Equality is a ridiculous word because it assumes equality in every area of life. On a very large scale masculinity is logic and strength and femininity is emotion and nurturing. That is historically true also. That is what typically strengthens a relationship (yes even gays)---those two traits.

Man and women can be equal is some areas and completely unequal in others. That is a fact even though it destroys your feel-good statement.

Let's see how 'equal' we are when it comes time for women to be drafted into combat...

2 parts of this are ridiculous, the first of course is we dont have a draft, and it would be so unpopular it is unlikely to ever happen.

and 2 posts above you just mentioned how much you hate the idea of women in the military. so you would be against women in the draft...

Both of your points are ridiculous as what I said was a hypothetical for the sake of the argument.

IF men and women are equal would you force them into battle along side men?

Pretty much how I view men and women. Both are important, but not equal (i.e. the same).

Quote:
What are the differences between men and women?

Man and woman represent two forms of divine energy; they are the male and female elements of a single soul.

G-d is neither masculine nor feminine, but has two forms of emanation: the masculine form, which is more aggressive, and the feminine form, which is more subtle. For a human being to lead a total life, he or she must have both forms of energy: the power of strength and the power of subtlety; the power of giving and the power of receiving. Ideally, these energies are merged seamlessly.

Men are physically stronger. By nature, they are usually more aggressive and externally oriented. In contrast, a woman usually embodies the ideal of inner dignity. Some people confuse such subtlety with weakness; in truth, it is stronger than the most aggressive physical force imaginable. True human dignity does not shout; it is a strong, steady voice that speaks from within. The nature of a woman, while subtle, is not weak. And the nature of a man, while aggressive, is not brutish. For man and woman to be complete, they must each possess both energies.

The answer is not for men and women to try to be alike. All men and women must be themselves, realizing that G-d has given each of us unique abilities with which to pursue our goals, and that our primary responsibility is to take full advantage of those abilities.

Let me take that a bit farther. I for one am very happy that there are major anatomical differences between the sexes.

That's where character comes into play. You should know the reason WHY she wants to marry you.

Are you 15 yrs older than her, 2 leagues below her, out of shape, out of touch with her social scene, tastes, etc? Does she have an education and career? Does she have any appreciable net worth? Does she have a history of bouncing from boyfriend to boyfriend every time the wind blows?

If I had the slightest suspicion that she was marrying me for money, she'd be out the door so fast her head would spin.

I went on a few dates with a woman recently who doesn't have kids yet and doesn't want them, saying "I'm too selfish with my time to have kids". Big turnoff. She was also very much of the opinion that she should be the center of everyone's attention every time she enters a room, that was her form of validation in life. I stopped calling her. I can picture her later in life getting plastic surgeries and still trying to be the "hot" older woman that has to be the center of attention in every room. And probably seeking validation from the pool boy. No thank you. Find some other sucker.

When the economy keeps getting worse you see these "independent" women looking for shelter.. being single for 44 years you see it all and hard times are bringing them right to my door and I laugh at them..

The person that said earlier "women lose in the end" is the truth.. screw 'em one and all..

If you can't pick up on THOSE scenarios, then you deserve what you have coming. But some of them will play the part, mask themselves, and as soon as the ring goes on and that first baby pops out, BAM! What's important is not just trying to analyze the woman but looking at her parents' situation as well. A woman with a stay at home mom = utterly toxic.

Oh no they'll be fine. They got that living outside in the rough thing down pat. Just give up A/C, Lattes', malls, Land Rovers at 900mph in the parking while talking to their BFF for the 45th time that hour, remodeling the house for the 5th time in 3 years, pedicures twice a day, 1 hour showers, trips to Cancun where they never got topless anyway, girls night out to bash on their men for four hours while talking about the young hawt guy in the corner, designer t-shirts, Victoria's Secret, $450.00 worth of make-up a month, bikini waxes(ouch), tanning salons...

No they'll be fine on their own.
