Is there any push on legislation that could help?

AH, close. I saw it said Northern VA and remember you saying you work in Wash DC, so figured it could be a possibility.

I have already called the PC police!
LOL... there is of course a huge difference between legal vs illegal when speaking of immigrants.

Re: A Day Without A Woman

I noticed that in my sphere of friends/acquaintances or online people, that most of the women that support this "Day without Women" thing either don't work or are government employees. It's super hard to get fired from those jobs, lol. I work in an all female office. All of us were at work yesterday. If we had stayed home, it would've pissed off our clients and they would take their business elsewhere. Then where would we be?

I went to work, spent money, cleaned the kitchen, took my son to soccer training and wore blue. I wasn't about to support a cause where one of the organizers is a convicted terrorist, spent 10 years in prison and then lied about her criminal past to gain entry into this country. I'm disgusted where feminism has gone and who they aligned themselves with.

You are so awesome.

There are some really stupid people out there who give no thought to their so called "great ideas".
It's mostly a bunch of pretentious pandering.

Or panderping, if you will.

Re: A Day Without A Woman

Whenever there's some cause rallying like this, I am oblivious to it, because I'm working and busy making the bacon. Your employers remember who showed up to work and filled the shoes of the missing that day.

Living a cause is more meaningful IMO than soapboxing and protesting. I get more genuine respect for getting on with what I do than shouting from a mountain top what I do.

Plus, every time I read the topic title, I keep picturing news headlines: "Male population of the world enjoys rare day of nag-free pleasures: roaming the earth naked, scratching their privates, and mastering the art of belching the alphabet."

I told my wife I refused to let her make me a sammich that day. She was confused.



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.

Re: A Day Without A Woman

My wife and I took that whole day off work. We spent the first half with our son, and the afternoon together. had no idea what was going on. Never saw a protester. She finally got relaxed enough to engage in sexual intimacy.
I get some of my politics on the radio and I heard a lot of Rants. My favorite was how terrible it was that feminine hygiene products were subject to sales tax while Rogaine and Viagra are not. I'm sure that most men would be happy to pay the sales tax if we could get the FDA to release those things to over the counter status. Can you imagine the uproar if you needed a prescription for tampons?
