    Where as you travel to modern East Asian countries that have not had the history of sexual repression and you’ll find women, in general, more feminine than their Western counterparts yet embracing women’s rights. Conversely Asian men tend not to be as domineering (Japan being an exception) or as insecure or as virulently conservative about Women’s role.

    For example one of the reason that Western working class men are so hostile towards feminism is that with growing access to higher education and equality in the work place many working class men are being out educated and out earned by their wives and it makes them feel Powerless and emasculated.

    In general in western society as you go up the ladder of educational achievement and socioeconomic status you’ll find men less threatened and even apathetic about feminism. As far as radical feminists are concerned you just have to look around you and see who is building and running our society to see that radical feminist are largely blowing smoke. With political freedom they argued for equality of outcomes and what really happened is women took those freedoms and have achieved different outcomes. Just look at how women have come to dominate the health care industry. It was these types of outcomes that radical feminists didn’t expect. They expected an equality of outcome across the board which hasn’t happened. Women have shown they have different interests and therefore different outcomes then men.

    Some argue that it started with condoms.

    . They expected an equality of outcome across the board which hasn’t happened. Women have shown they have different interests and therefore different outcomes then men.
    And that should be all anyone could ask for. To have the freedom to excel at that which interests you. Nurses/doctors make a hell of a lot more money than telephone operators and women in the typing pool.

    What was that non fiction movie about the women mathematicians who worked at NASA? Great story.

    Why didn't you park at your own house then?

    As Voltaire said about the execution of Admiral Bing, maybe JPP should execute a poster now and then to encourage the others?

    "Mais dans ce pays-ci il est bon de tuer de temps en temps un Amiral pour encourager les autres"
