For them I have the utmost respect.
    When I was little, I saw my father go to work every day, come home, eat, relax. I saw my mother cooking, cleaning, etc., doing the same repetitive things over and over, for more hours a day than my father put in. I decided by kindergarten age that I wanted his life, not hers.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Is OK to go to work.

    Is OK to stay home & raise the kids.

    Is not OK to tell others which choice they ought to be making.

    Is that simple.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    When you tell a woman,no abortion and then say,also NO birth control..and pay her less,so she must have a husband to survive money wise. And no condoms no pill,only say stay celibate(yeh sure) and perhaps wear a pup tent for cloths like other place,to stop temptation.

    I love western society..just not the 19th century hold outs.
    MAGIC is MAGIC,black OR white or even blood RED

    all i ever wanted was a normal life and love.

    This thread has gone off the rails! Anywho, talking about workplace sexism. I've shared this before here I'm sure.

    My former boss (good guy, took a chance on me and promoted me when I was still rough around the edges) gave me my review. It was all good. No issues. But he said I needed to work on how I spoke to people. I was too blunt. And though he liked it, it wasn't always going to rub people the right way. Mind you he's a former Marine, conservative who rides on and on about illegal immigration and guns AND is a Mexican through and through.

    So he's like yeah, change how you talk to people. I replied that 44 years of me carrying myself this way has always worked for me and I would not be changing how I talked. We didn't argue. I wasn't upset. I just replied with that. That this was my opinion and I was sticking to it. I just brushed off what he said. And that was that.


    Now my new boss specifically looks for people to talk to people the way I do.

    Go figure.

    And by how I talk? It's like here. I talk short. I don't give long speeches about things. And I don't ever explain or apologize for a 'no' response from me. Someone asks me something and I say no. And that's that. I realize how it bugs people. But males say no without having to explain. And my father (a Marine from WWII) I guess raised me to be that way. And that's fine by me.

    I totally understand what you are getting at. I too don't want this to devolve. But, at the risk of creating all sorts of hullabaloo let me ask you this; why doesn't the unborn child get a say and who is going to protect them?
    It's not a child. It's a cluster of cells growing within a woman's body. And it's funny how often I see conservatives screaming about the rights of unborn babies, but if a mother who is in no financial/mental/physical condition to actually take care of the child has it, then it's her fault. She's a whore who should have kept her legs shut. She's just abusing the system. It's always the mother's fault--I have rarely seen anyone blame the father from an accidental or very poorly planned pregnancy.

    If someone chooses to carry it until it develops to the point that it can think, hear, feel, then it's a fetus. It's a child after its born. And quite frankly, unless you are the one carrying the cells, I don't think it's your place or right to tell someone what they can do with it (this is a general "you").

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Re: African-Americans Are Boycotting The Oscars

    Nope, already off topic as hell, not going into abortion too because that will turn into a debate/shouting match and that topic is banned for debates. Thank you for playing, move along.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis
