THAT is one of my favourite sentence ! ! ! B-)
It is used in the link in the first line of my signature.

If you see the linked film, it shows how we control our life, more than we think. . .!

I wonder what their world of the future would look like if they succeed, but I am thinking or hoping there are more of us then there are of them, although it seems the squeaky wheel, whether right of wrong, always gets the grease.

I understand what your saying. We are our children's parents, not their friends. I remind my children of that. I am not afraid that my children won't like me. I tell them that we are your parents we will always love you no matter what and have your best interest at heart, even when you don't. Besides, if they don't dislike me every now and again I'm probably not doing my job correctly.

Children and spouse come first. No exceptions

Then family.

Then job.

Then everyone else.

The last two can be inter-changeable.

I am a woman, I love being a woman. My husband is a man and I love the fact he is a man. I say this because it is so sad to see husbands and wives that don't like each other. I have left several situations when the male bashing begins. Not a big fan of that. Funny stories of what we've done or gotten into, but not full on male bashing.

As a woman, I am not helpless, I can change the oil in my car and fix things. My husband can cook and clean too. When needed we step up to help the other out.

As I said we are not religious, but we are spiritual. We have our beliefs, values and traditions that we hold on to.

We value our children, they are our gifts from heaven above. I have found that not a lot of parents discuss things with their children.

I have had the same problem with discussing this with other parents. Some of my family thinks that I am nuts, but I, at times feel the same way, and I love them despite it.

Cyberfeminism Defined
Typically, the cyberfeminists are not just a carbon copy of traditional feminists, but rather operate from different premises. For example, traditional feminism states that despite the claims of gender being less important in cyberspace, the internet is still a sexist environment and, essentially, the struggle must go on.

Cyberfeminism provides a more optimistic reading and is fairly typical of the enthusiasms generated by the internet. According to cyberfeminists like Sadie Plant, the internet is a quintessentially female technology. First, the values of the internet, like the free exchange of information, the lessening of hierarchy and the nurturing aspects of virtual communities, are female values. Second, networking technology is a final proof that the technology is out of control and that the traditional male quest of control can no longer operate. Hence, she claims that the internet repr

Why are these qualities (at the end of your ext-text) expressly female? I understand that we are the product of evolution, and men and women have fundamental differences that go well beyond our bodies. However, some part of me has to wonder if some of these gender views exist in me because I've noticed these things over the years, or have they been programmed into me?

I also find it very highly sexist to say or think that males can not or do not have a nurturing nature.

To say that "free exchange of ideas" is expressly female and not male, seems like blatant, pulled-from-the-rear-end propaganda.

*High Five* to you and yours. You're on the right track big-time. Your outlook and what you're actively doing in your children's life, your family life, is what gives me and many others a whole sack of hope for the USA. Honestly, without trying to sound drama induced? The USA, the Future of America? It's all in your hands. You're doing a great job. As one American to another - and for all our future?

THANK YOU!


peace

When I was in college I did a huge paper on North Korea. What you're talking about reminds me very much of the political ideology there. It's called Juche, which basically means "self-reliance." In this case it is not reliance on the individual, but the people as a body. The North Korean Mass Games are a perfect example of the surrender of individual will and ideas for the "benefit" of the whole.
