Sure. I will hold the door open for you.

I'm all for equality for women. If they want to give up thier superiority...that's fine by me.

i kindof think women in general have a slightly different point-of-view but depending on the individual i don't see women as being inferior at whatever,my youngest daughter once changed a flat tire because her now husband had no idea about it,kindof shatters the manly stance huh

You kinda did, to both women and men. And probably the gays and lesbians won't clamor for you to be their champion.

Okay, *this* thread has clearly lost its way. How long did it take to devolve into gender wars? One page? mikieg, I would like to respectfully submit that you consider taking a walk on the wild side. It seems to suit you philosophically, the only trouble is finding a way to deal with your shame. Perhaps you might take a week's vacation somewhere anonymous, give it a try and see if you like it. If you don't, no real harm done. If you do, well, you have a world of new opportunities. Might make your living situation a little sticky temporarily, but I'm confident those hurdles could be overcome.

References to gay, however, are just childish. DR is a respectable poster here and should have torn you a new one for that post. Picture a couple of hundred of us locked and loaded, if you don't straighten up.

Thank you Minnewaska.

I don't shy away from a healthy discussion but mikieg just wants to fight. As much as I'm tempted to rip away, any additional response from me to him would just add fuel to his weak flame and the rest of the forum members don't need to be subjected to that.

hey DR, you seem hung up on this gay thing. you care to share it with us, or are you going to continue to insinuate?-mikieg

This is inappropriate. Donna is a substantial person who blogs here to help others and also for the commradiere of fellow sailors. She has met many of us and also organizes get togethers of the SN in our area. Threads have no place for personal attacks.
