I had forgotten it but that sounds like my wife too, at times in our marriage. Now that I think about it, I could have acted the same way at times...

It depends on the situation and what's going on in our lives.

It sounds to me like she was just feeling left out and didn't explain herself. Mind you, we men are a lil dense sometimes...You'd think women would get that by now.

See what I did there

Ducking for cover lol

J/K Hope I made you day a little brighter, Bugged.

The word itself causes many to conjure up things in our minds.. because it has been "muddied" by many within the movement.

I've read too many posts/ articles that feel as "Bugged" does -when she said this >> "Feminism has a prerequisite that you don't seem to have IMO.. the ability to spot a SEXIST and condescending post."...

It's true.. some seem to be there waiting like a vulture to swoop down and correct ...a misplaced word offends them.. a different view offends them.... my radar is always UP to see what camp they fall in & to what extreme...as then we must closely monitor every word that proceeds from our mouths as to not offend them.....I find this exasperating!

One can't have a sense of humor, one has to fit into what they DEFINE "as equal" & always ALWAYS praise the female... or expect to get reprimanded on our words, our thoughts, our views.. it shuts down honest dialog, it accuses, it destroys many decent threads even. Sad.

Re: A Good Marriage

SA,

A feminist to me is someone striving for equal rights and justifiably so.

I don't pay much attention to extremists.

I find this post funny because I have yet to meet a man and know him for long that he is not prone to silly behavior on occasion. Men can be just as irrational/silly as women can.

Re: A Good Marriage

I'm locking this thread. When Kitt gets back, she can start a new thread on this topic if she chooses. And if she does, sticking to the topic and fights attacking each other will not be tolerated.
