    Why in the world does a man feel his masculinity is threatened by women who can take care of themselves. They should be proud of the fact their wives can take care of themselves and their family if anything happens to them. And it happens all the time.

    Apparently they were good at it too.
    He never heard of Rosie the Riveter. My mom was hard at work while my Dad was fighting in Germany. Good God,the mentality of 18TH century England. I love the books,would never want to live then.

    Yeah you're right. The men of today don't have the balls our mothers had.

    Speaking from a physiological standpoint, the y chromosome is has largly devolved to be little more than a vehicle for delivering the genes responsible for giving someone the ability to produce sperm. Why is this? Because the X chromosome (the default gene in humans) is more easily preserved as it is passed down in pares and thus less easily convoluted. Two y chromosomes will not even be born, they do not have near enough genes to make a living person. When a baby is in the womb, that child will be receiving male type chemicals as well from its mother that will help determine that childs masculinity. As well, much of that childs upbringing will determine the particulars of how that child will act.

    The short answer is that we have evolved past the need for overly-masculine type males who are being replaced by a more successful, sensitive, nurturing male.

    I dont like it either.

    No gathering is for flowers, when you say "traditional" marriage, you mean the sharing of life, love and finance thru a contract designed to join two people. Yes?

    How do American women try to "break" you?

    I did that,too. But get real,this is not the 1950's. Men and women are better educated. Women can afford good child care. There are excellent programs. Children actually benefit from interaction with others. They learn more.

    I lived those years,but for sure I do not want my children or Grandchildren to go back.

    I am amazed at what my children have done. This generation is even more brilliant.

    Why in the world would anyone want to go back to the rosy,good ole days that never were?
