Your commentary is full of emotion. The entire concept you promote is based on emotion.
You aren't my equal.
Fortune for you that there are laws protecting you from the fact that you are not my equal in any way, merely based on the fact that you are also human.

The people who say emotions and intelligence can't go together are usually very emotional, and so unintelligent that they don't even recognize it.
burkhas are ridiculous
My final point:
If men want women to stay at home and take care of them, and not work, then they should be someone that we would want to stay at home for.

I stopped short of making a major violation of the T&C before I wiped what I had wrote and calmed down.
I don't WANT to work, I HAVE to work, I have a family to support and working means food and other necessities that my children cannot live without. I think that the OP forgot all of the women in the world who work solely to provide, not because we want to go out and buy a new scarf or handbag.
To say that women working is the root cause of the financial crisis is just ignorance at it's best.
My toned down reply..
As long as we are all pointing fingers at one another we will not have our eyes on the source of the problem-an increase in the supply of money.

I completly agree with this, under the guise of freeing women from the home both men and women have been exploited for material gain and profit. In turn that has mnde families vunerable, children that don't know their own parents and all the social ills that go with it.

...not women, which is what some of our girls are getting their backs up about.

Then those powerful men use emotional arguments that appeal to a subset of men to promote the ideas that:
1. the crisis wasn't caused by mismanagement and rich people taking big risks with billions of dollars in resources but was instead somehow caused by really poor people taking on 45 year mortgages on cheap old homes.
2. that the problem could be solved by giving men personal financial dominance in their personal lives, to distract them and pay them off for ignroing the real problem.
