I think I'm just a natural anti-authoritarian.  I grew up in the church, but I remember when I had questions - I did not like the answers and I completely stopped going by age 10.  

I'll never forget the day I heard the preacher tell the story of Abraham sacrificing his son.  He's telling the story - I am looking around at my parents, other adults....all seem cool with the whole story.  I'm thinking as a kid - this is some scary shit here.  Was turned off from that day forward.

No.  But I came from a long line of strong women.  My mother was a widow and my grandmother as well.  It wasn't feminism but out of need.   My mother always told me that I should always be able to support my family.  You never know what can happen.  I was just expected to be strong.  Not sure if that is really feminism.  Never had the desire to join a group.

You have a very gritty attitude to share with  and fight with a mixed bag of us forumites, even alone! I do admire that. You are always yourself!

KIyer is himself too, though you two might not see eye to eye with each other sometimes or most of time.

The genders are different and thus there can be no true "gender equality"...what you need is love and respect, not equality per se, because there is no such thing!

In the gendarme wars, girls already won.



Not sure they are happier than before.

Boys should go to boys schools

And girls to girl school.



What you think?
