I would be labelled a sexist by all waves of feminism, I am the main bread earner, I wish for my wife to be a stay at home mum until our daughter is old enough to go to school. I would like to believe I had control over my daughter when shes old enough to stop her dressing like certain women.

I am familiar with emotional abuse. My father was that sort of man, unfortunately. He never laid a finger on my sister and I, but his utter disdain was apparent in every single thing he ever did. He left the family when I was fifteen or so and although that caused difficulties all its own, it at least gave my sister and I a chance of developing some half way normal behaviour. As it is, my sister was not unaffected by all this and nor was I. We both have to work very hard to overcome that total disregard we experienced from him. Luckily, we have the best mother a person could hope for. For all that, as with any parent, she can be frustrating, she is a lioness when it comes to her children.
I think that what happened to myself and my family, is one of the reasons I am fortunate enough to be able to see the wood for the trees where this stuff is concerned. When you see the rot from the inside, you get a better idea of what really drives it.

Do I have the right to tell you how to treat women?

I hope men no longer join the armed services....only women.
Coal miners only women.

It is time for men to stay home; learn how to order take out food to feed the family and learn how to operate the DVD player.
