<quoted text>STO,you keep judging people. He has a clear message here. He is admitting to being part of the secular world/thinking. He makes no bones about his sin,even to risk being judged for it. But,it's okay,I think he knew that when he came on. NOBODY who still lives in their sin(LIVES in their sin-meaning,refusing to admit that they are offending God/or/wanting to change),wants to hear about a man who was BEEN THERE DONE THAT and found Christs love and forgiveness.
Take a leader of an AA/NA meeting. They've been there,done that,and still will tell you that you must stay clean. Is he/she a hypocrite in your opinion for acting all righteous because they are clean? What about them sharing their stories of their disasterous lives? Are they being all high and mighty by exposing the consequences of their drinking/drugging?
""""" Why else would you constantly judge me as "evil" and "Satan","" """
You support killing whom God willed to exist,as CHOICE.
That's evil. Satan is evil.
GOD says that we are either WITH him or against him. WWW.ABORTIONNO.ORG is evil...of Satan...NOT of God.
Figure it out.
When you do,you will understand that me saying this has nothing to do with me being angry or not.
People(like foo,you,bitter,etcc.) going around calling people morons,idiots,meaningless,piti ful existence,etc...is a sign of anger and frustration. Do you do that in real life to people you disagree with OR find annoying,boring and uneducated(as you say)? I bet not to their faces. I guess on here is *safe* for you to act the tough guys.
(yakity yakity yak)

I'll try to make this short and sweet.

Nothing wrong with sharing your hardships and admitting your faults. Something is wrong when you repeat those faults, claim it's okay cuz you're forgiven, then run around telling anyone you disagree that they are going to hell, are Satan, etc. etc. etc.

As for the rest. It's your same ol' shit. I disagree. You know why. That's the end of it.

Calm yerself. You're gonna have a heart attack or sumthin.

And sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not angry. I don't post when I'm angry because that would mean I have real life shit going on. Not some trifling bullshit going on here. Good lord, woman, learn to discern.

I know that you want to think that about me, and it's your right to do so. However, you are indisputably mistaken. And, it's a fact that every woman has experienced sexism, whether they know it or not, or, want to acknowledge it, or not. I don't speak for other women, I just know what I know.

I have been treated unequally in many ways; too many to list. All women are treated unequally. That includes you, absolutely and unarguably. No woman is immune from sexist, unfortunately. You are apparently oblivious to the world around you. My turn to ask you a question: Tell me, Ink, is ignorance really bliss?
Maybe you were passed up for other reasons.

Being a stay at home mother and able to develop skills that set me on my own business course, I fortunately avoided all that. I haven't had to depend on someone else for my advancement. So you see it doesn't include me or other independant women.

For all the chest beating about having control over their lives, they are really a bunch of victims in more ways than they know.

<quoted text> Because Moms are the nuturers of their children being in the very first stages of life. God gave women breasts for a reason,and it is not just to feed their babies. It has bonding purposes too. Sounds to me like God intended small children to be with mom fulltime.
In the days of old,men went out to find food,etc...while the women cared for the children. They all worked together in their own ways.
War is no good for anyone. I don't *think* that it is is okay for men to be away from their families either.
Again,women are different then men. Womens bodies are more delicate than mens.
There are many people who can be nurturers of children, fathers, grandparent, etc...

Sigh.(see my post to sassylicious, above) You've been treated in sexist ways in a myriad of ways, throughout your life. Maybe you condone that, but sexism doesn't hinge on your perception of your treatment or of your reaction to it. Sexism is in the minds and behaviors of the perpetrators, not of the subjects.

Every man has experienced sexism too, only men have to sign up for the Selective Service and only men can be drafted.

It's not the same. Mothers and children miss the boat when mom delegates the nurturing.

Really how? You have been reading too many 'women victim books'. I'm sorry that you have been badly treated but don't speak for the rest of us.

Some of us really do control our own lives.

So if Mom dies in childbirth her children "miss the boat"?

You don't think there would be someone very important missing from their lives? Why do you think even happy adopted children often search for their mothers? We all do the best we can under the circumstances but yes I would say something is missing.

I've worked from home. I'm still an independent contractor. Responsible for everything. Including my taxes and benefits. No employer to match me.

But I'm not every woman claiming my way is better than anyone else's. My way is better for me, though. Better for my kids. It allowed me to be home when they came home from school.

Surely you'd approve.

Carry your own damn load. That's just laziness, princess.

If your "woman parts" are compromised, see a doctor. My mother was 5'4" and weighed 112, and never thought of herself as a usless, weak "girl." She considered that just a way of avoiding personal responsibility. She also managed to raise 7 happy, well-behaved children.

<quoted text> Absolutely! I am a fairly strong girl but if I need something heavy carried, I will not hesitate to seek out a male to lift it for me. Us women are not built like men plus we have women parts that are compromised. Men and women are different and i don't understand why some women are so insecure that they won't admit this. They even refuse to embrace their feminity. Some find it a burdensome to raise or bear children. It's like a dreaded, unwelcomed experience.
IMO, from what I see,(with proaborts, those who have little or no bond with their moms) women repeat what they lived. I have even heard women claim that they don't want kids in fear that they'll be like their mom. A good friend of mine (older than me) walks on eggshells raising her kids because she sees her mom (who was not affectionate and selfish) in herself. She over does it to prove that shes not. Her kids are spoiled and unhappy unfortunately because of it. She takes blame for not being a stable mom. It's sad because she wants to rid herself of her past and she can't. She had abortions as well. She lives with deep sadness all the time.

What makes you think that I haven't seen a Dr?@@

As I said (which you ignored) I am a strong girl. My boys and husband lift weights. If something is heavy I will not hesitate to ask them to lift it for me. There was a time when I would lift heavy furniture when helping family move. No problem. I have a habit of not realizing that I am not a spring chicken anymore. My mom was very strong as well and her Dr told her to be careful with heavy lifting being a woman.

Whay does this ^^ have to do with what she said? Elise made a claim that "all" women have experienced sexism. She blamed all her rejection of jobs and less pay on it. I've never experienced that so she is wrong.

Is there sexism in the world? Yes. Do ALL experience it like she claimed? No.

Yes they do. Nobody replaces mom. Will a grandparent be the next best thing? Sure.

I think that babysitters raising kids was the point here anyway. A child doesn't get the one on one bonding with mom. That's not beneficial to the child to have a paid employer raising them. No way compares with mom doing it.

I'm against the draft. I know sexism goes both ways. You're preaching to the choir.
