Well let’s look at this monumentus decision by women shall we?
Speaking of letting 'one's emotions get the best of them', was it not a fact, that a woman decided to take matters into to her own hands, because
her husband was too 'afraid' to 'take a bite out of life.'? Knowledge? So it got them both kicked out of paradise? So what? We expanded our
real-estate horizons elsewhere. No biggy.
Let us look at this side note in depth as to the repercussions that were wrought upon mankind by Eve taking the bite out of the forbidden fruit.
Paradise, The Garden of Eden, The cradle of mankind.
So let us look at what God to Adam said about this place that my opponent felt was just not good enough to live in…
15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are
free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will
Yea good thinking Eve, thanks for that. Let’s just sacrifice mankind’s immortality
for toiling in an inhospitable environment, especially
when the place we used to live was a paradise with everything we could want or need. Good thinking Eve. Gotta hand it to ya for that one. Yep the
of good and evil
justified our deaths to know. I don’t know about anyone else but I believe our collective innocence versus
our inevitable deaths is too high of a price to pay.
Adam got the picture, and you wonder why women have been oppressed for so long?
forcing them to cover-up their physique, and denying them basic essentials, conducive to a properly educated, productive and healthy
I will agree with you on this one, the female form is beautiful and should never be oppressed as well as the opportunity for education and to live in
an environment without fear.
Take *Note* "None of these situations are apparent...when the gender roles are reversed."
Oh I beg to differ, as a formerly married man I sorely beg to differ on this point. It is a well known statement, that in a married environment if
“Mommy is not happy NO ONE IS HAPPY”
This leads to divorce. The divorce rate in the United States is well over 50% in Canada it is about the same the number. Of women that initiate the
divorce is near 75% source:www.fathersforlife.org...

Men have so much to loose nowadays by not capitulating to their wife’s every whim and desire. A divorce for a man is much more expensive than it is
for a woman, because a man has to overcome the court’s obligation to appease the woman for the time during the marriage. If they for instance have
to both work and have children the man has to fight twice as hard to have any real time with his children, if the man happens to make more money than
the wife then he must pay alimony to her. “For the lifestyle that she has become accustomed to”
A women at the governmental helm, would more than likely, ensure fairness and equality for all. Nurturing and Empathy,
Nurturing and Empathy eh?
Marie Antoinette said, “Let them eat cake” referring to her starving peasantry, that’s nurturing and empathy from a feminine government leader
This reminds me of a grand idea that came out of the book, “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.”
The Point-of-view gun is a fictional device created by Douglas Adams for the movie version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; it
does not appear in any of the previous versions of the story..
According to the film, the gun was created by Deep Thought prior to its long pondering of the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything. When used
on someone, it will cause them to see things from the point of view of the person firing the gun. According to the Guide, the gun was commissioned by
the Intergalactic Consortium of Angry Housewives, who were tired of ending every argument with their husbands with the phrase: "You just don't get
it, do you?"
When Money is worth more than a human life
So let me take this section apart for a minute here and examine this…
Yes I do believe that these atrocities do occur in India and China. The fact remains that the world would just be a better place if yours truly were
in control. The logic behind these horrible acts is simple. This planet is way overpopulated as it is. Females can give birth to multiple children,
men on the other hand have a much more difficult time, (read can’t conceive
The age-old typical gender rolls are that the man is the hunter-gatherer and the woman is to tend the home and family. In the US and other
“civilized nations” this idea of gender rolls has been nearly obliterated. I will personally not see women as equal to a man until the day I see a
woman becomes a sanitation engineer. I am sure she exists somewhere in this country. But until a woman comes and picks up my garbage I will continue
to see females while being mentally equal to any man selective in what they deem as equality. If you want to be my equal and have the same pay for the
same work, do the same work.
Now where I work my direct supervisor is a female, she will tell you that I respect her and do everything that she tells me to do, to the best of my
ability and with absolutely no problems or incidences where her gender plays a part of my job performance.
The truth is that yes her gender does play a part in some aspects of my interaction with her. I must give her more respect than the general manager of
the store that I work at. He is a man. He has told me to do some things but the fact that he is a fellow man allows me to when he is wrong tell him to
stuff it. (I of course do that respectfully but my mannerisms and verbiage can alter and I feel freer to express myself as I normally would without
fear of being treated as a sexist pig)
To put it frankly with her I have to act as if I were married, her emotional issues have gotten in the way several times and she has acted toward me
and customers in a less than a professional manner. While I have adapted to this and accept this as the norm in this job others have not and for this
they no longer or soon to no longer have a position in the company.
We work nights, so when she goes outside for some aspect of the job and she is out of site for too long I go look for her. With the other male
employee I would not think of doing so. As far as her job performance and where she is in the company go she does deserve her post, she I feel could
actually rise to the level of store manager and I feel that she would be an asset to the company to do so.
In another job I worked as an account’s payable clerk for a hotel. My boss was a rather attractive female
. Adept at her job beyond abilities I have ever witnessed in a person of mathematical
skill. Again I respected her for her ability and her position but again there arose problems based solely on gender. One arose because of my candy
drawer; I used to keep the bottom left hand drawer filled with m&m’s, cookies, crackers, chips, pretzels, and other assorted munchies. (I eat a lot)
The specific complaint was and I did not appreciate this…
“I am going to have to fire you because I have gained 20 lbs sense you have been in this office.” It was obviously a joke, however a male boss
would not have said such a thing. In fact most employees that came to the accounting office preferred to sit next to my desk because of the treats
available. This made for in my opinion a more comfortable setting when I would have to ask about expenditures.
If women want to be equal in the workplace they have to realize that equality means equality. I don’t want to hear about a woman’s personal life
or their own issues as much as it would be inappropriate for me to have to listen to a female boss’s issues with her own weight.
Such is the same with a female leader and why females should not run the world. The lack of respect a man is given when a female is given power shows
the obvious problems with this idea.
My opponent pointed out the male version of menopause. Granted this might be an actual condition but men will strive to overcome the problems
associated with this because of the dog eat dog world that exists. Weakness in this world is frowned upon. Any weakness can be exploited, and as such
the adversaries of that man will certainly exploit a male version of menopause
. Now onto the Socratic questions….
1) If say you were the female ruler of the world how would you respond to a man’s flatulence in your presence?
2) You have a box that is too heavy for you to lift who do you call in order to lift the problem?
3) (Almost facetious) living with a man toilet seat up or down?
4) And why?
5) A burglar enters the home of a man and a woman who responds and why?
I apologize for my lateness, I have sent a u2u to both TheVagabond and TheDuckster explaining my tardiness. Both have answered and have accepted the
