RE: vindictiveness in groups

I was commenting on what you said, not what you stand for. You know I have stuck up for you and many others every day I am on here. If I hadn't been sticking up for someone earlier, then none of this would be an issue.

Who am I supposed to listen to here to have things in common with, to get along?

That comment of yours wasn't surely meant for anyone but me..........The only person I don't get along with is cindyboy......What would you have me do then, to make the threads a sweeter read?

Maybe you'd like me to leave too, since obviously I couldn't possibly have any grievances here, that are justified enough to account for messing up threads with what is important to me, like my reputation. It's all about what is important to you right? OK so be it.thumbs down

RE: vindictiveness in groups

RE: Gender Equality?

Load of crap. Irish Brehon Law gave women the vote long before New Zealand was ever heard of, since the Bronze Age in fact!

"Brehon Law was the law of the Irish until finally extinguished during the Cromwellian onslaught of the 17th century. The durability of the Law for nearly 3-millenium is astounding. The reason for its unparalleled strength and longevity was the sense of honor held by the people whom it governed. The laws were laws of users. That is, they attained their authority from public opinion. They were an expression of the moral power of the people. That moral power was the code of honor reflected throughout both ancient law and wisdom texts. An individuals word was his or her bond.
As laws of users, no law could be changed without approval of the people. Thus any enactment of a new law or a modification to an existing law could only be accomplished in open forum of the assembled people. Thus though Rí and Noble might campaign for a specific law, it took a majority vote of all tribal free citizens to effect enactment. The Brehon Law truly was a Law of the people, by the people and for the people."

Does that mean you are looking for older women then, or just younger sterile ones?rolling on the floor laughing

RE: Cosmetic Surgery, A cure all or a recipe for disaster?

I personally think they are not good enough at it yet, not to make people look sometimes brute ugly, especially the botox brigade. Joan Rivers being a good example. Even Dolly Parton is not looking so good these days. One step too far I think.

But then those addicted to narcissism never know when to stop, even if they could.doh

The world is getting very much dog-eat-dog in it's competativeness to look good, and its penchant for only accepting people who look a certain way.

I won't say perfect here, because I don't believe there is such a thing, and perfection sometimes comes with a broken nose or one leg missing for me.

I'm not about pretty faces.wine

RE: Gender Equality?

Not disagreeing with you here Elley, but there is another side to this too. It is not only about women ceding power in the home, but about men having to keep their macho image among less enlightened men, and still take up household duties. Mangina's is the least of what some of them are called, but by their own gender. That is hard to take, so some won't be house husbands, or care-givers for children, or even have equal responsibility sometimes, and it is not all the women's fault.

Typos

doh

RE: Gender Equality?


Another thing is,it seems to me,that some women want to embrace all that the new role they have has to offer,but they do not want to cede the power that they had in their old role. I sometimes think,looking at the past,that in some way it was equal in as much as the man had the economic power and the woman the s*xual power,in that there was some sort of equilibrium,though I am sure it was very much abused too.What men see,and what they afraid of,is the erosion of their power outside of the home and a refusal by women to cede some of the power at home.A nightmare future scenario sees no place in or outside of the home for the man.I think women have to also allow men to reinvent themselves,without fear of being perceived as, or called, wussies and manginas.

And although I don't mind, I have never been called a feminist before. Never even thought of myself that way. Just seems strange to me. peace

RE: "Who is Stupid" and "Who Is Smart"

On the subject of stupid questions, and there not being any.....

Think about this, something you may all have witnessed........

A person leaves their keys down on the table. Meets and talks with someoen and then before they leave asks, "are those my keys lying on the table?", knowing full well that they are indeed his keys.

That in my book is a stupid question, as are many rhetorical questions......doh

RE: Do u think there are clicks at CS ?

If you had kept up with the events in the last 24 hours, you would have noticed that this thread was started to allay blame and make accusations for something that has nothing to do with cliques on here, male or female.

Any supposed clique being referred to in the original posting was about those who rallied around to try to protect the OP from making one huge mistake, and castigate an ignorant little man on my behalf when he slandered me on here, so no gang of vindictive women in sight..........doh
