Well it looks like I started a little debate. So far from the responses here I can see that a lot of my male counter parts still have not pulled
themselves out of the dark ages. On behalf of them, to all of man and woman kind, I can only apologise.
I did not realise that ATS was full of knuckle draggers. Thought this was the home of the enlightened. Again, I ask you....LOOK AT THE FIGURES. Only
took me about 5 minutes to research that data. I you can't see that us men need to "Find another way" , then we are screwed. Shut down ATS , close
your doors and forget planning for a better future. With people like you around we are all #ed.!!!
To the one person who said they would rather stay at home and look after the kids and "Play on the internet all day", all I can say is you surley
have never ever looked after a child. A child wakes up at about 6am. And probably goes to bed at around 7pm. During those 12-13 hours you have to work
non stop. I've done it. Would I also kill time playing on the web, or would I focus on my childs development, hmmmmmmmm, touch one that.
And also, to the same knuckle dragger. What makes you think a female can't earn as much as a man. Yes, unfortunatley its still a greater challenge
for a woman to earn as much as men.....due to other men dictating to women there worth.
My wife earns a wedge , so do I. We are average in education. Both director level. Both share everything 50:50.....ok I do more cooking but only cos I
What Im saying is that we need Balance. I don't have much faith in Humanity, even less in men. But maybe if we have balance in our society , equal
representation, equal power. Then maybe the world would work a little better.
Being a male, it means we have to stop and think a bit more thats all. Example. Travelling to London the otehr day on business. Someone was speeding
and tail gating me at 80mph on the M1 , even though there was loads of traffic in front of me. He was f'ing and blinding at me to move.
Now instantly I wanted to slam on my brakes , stop the car, get out, and start ranting at this flipin idiot. Instead , I pulled in let him pass and
just breathed and relaxed.
Us men need to be a lot more self aware. Yes we are all capable of doing great things, and yes men are better than women at some, and women are better
than men at some things as well.
But tell me this, what use is our constant male posturing, our anger, our agression. It serves no purpose.
I see it all the time in business. The chap who I have a meeting with to discuss growing their business, introducing new products, making millions.
Some people seem to enter into the room with huge ego's , huge anger and an attempt at dominance. My life would be easier, if I could walk into a
meeting and not have to spend the 1st hour trying to get the meeting on a plain level.
Guys, im not saying women don't need to walk up a few stairs towards something better. But surley you can see that we are much further down those
Another FACT.....20% of relationships in the UK suffer from domestic violence from the man. Some people say its actually more than that. If men on
such a large scale can commit acts so hanus, what makes you think that these people in power won't do the same thing. I mean those figures are just
cringe worthy for me to see. Why on earth would you want to hit anyone, let alone a family member, LET ALONE YOUR WIFE/S.O.
Again....the numbers are there in plain view.
If you feel like writing a reponse saying "Well thats just men, testosterone makes us do funny things, thats just the way of the world" . Then thats
a feeble excuse. You can stop and think and CHOOSE TO CHANGE. CHOOSE A DIFFERENT WAY.
You know , like you know, like you know Im not wrong on this.
