I can agree with some points made in your first post, though you might have said it a little softer. Since the Women's Lib movement, there has been
a dramatic change in female lifestyles. They began to work at what was typically men's jobs, i.e. construction work, oilfield jobs, physically
demanding jobs. Arguments over salaries of men and women ensued women have become more assertive (even aggressive). There seems to be a power play
many times in marriages, women are more prone to be more independent, men are not always the head of the household (stay at home dads) and the
marriage sometimes decays. Also, there is a lack of committment to marriage due to current lifestyles.
I think many times women turn to women, and men to men because they don't want to be hurt anymore and women are a separate species than man and so
they are less threatened. vice versa
I don't believe that gays are totally accepted into the societal mainstream, everyone is not the same on that issue. Just because they started
demanding minority perks doesn't mean they are welcomed and their ideas are accepted.
I raised two boys from age 8 and 12 when my husband died . We were not Ozzie and Harriet by any means at all, and I know it would have been much
better if he had lived to teach those boys the male lessons they needed to know in growing up. (It's a dude thing) That situation is particular to
me, but children who grow up in one parent families, I really believe the miss out on necessary structure and they also mind their dads a lot better.
