We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
There is no doubt that women are the equal to men in most ways. I would say inferior in strength and aggressiveness ands superior in emotional and care giving. I have known strong women who are mentally stronger in many cases than men. Where the misunderstanding exists is because women, mostly young women and single women, will act differently to attract a man. Nothing wrong with this I guess but it does lead men to believe that women are weaker less capable than they actually are. Under estimate them at your peril.
