Ok ocean "who has still not answered my question ",if we are equal, then why not put women and men in the same prisons together?
If men and women can work, fight, together, then why not do time together?
I'm sure there would be no problems there either, right?
The USA has had co-ed prisons since, at least, the late '70s. Female prisons see its share of violence with male guards as perpetuaters.

What would Gtown recommend?

But I have read an article where most men tend to be sexually harrassed by female perputators.

Men should have maternity leave too, if you want equality, since you think both should go to work and none should be a specific nurturer.
I agree that men should have paternity leave (that's the correct term, hon.) They do in some countries, and it results in healthier families. As a matter of fact, here in NM, both my friend and her husband got family leave when their baby was born.

Inkstain is a moron. The US Military doesn't allow single parents to enlist. Period.

Since some women have convince the military that women should be allowed in combat which may very well lead to women having to serve in combat doesn't that amount to girls not having a choice to go to battle and possibly die and leave orphans behind?
Is that a weird concept to you?
I already wrote that I oppose the draft. I don't think that any person should be forced to go into battle. When men enlist in the military, they sometimes die in battle, leaving their children fatherless. When they die for their countries, we call them heroes. It isn't any different if a woman dies for her country, leaving her children motherless. She is a hero.

Of course it is paternity leave, I might have a mild form of dyslexia, with a bit of anxiety, still easy enough to cope with, you just have your silly mood swings.

Just because your daddy showed his disdain recently of people who make "bigoted" remarks, does not mean they are to be hated and shown open comtempt for it, child.

No, it was an ASSUMPTION that we hadn't seen the possible repercussions, as though we needed him to point them out to us 'poor little things'. He's obviously just used to dealing with empty headed women like you. We do see them.
It figures that Ink would fawn over a dink like Gtown71. Lol, hilarious.

Most of his abortions were technically 'legal' and most of his patients were exceedingly happy with his service. That is getting rid of the fetus when they couldn't get it done anywhere else.
The same 'speciality service' as tiller.
Abortion is not legal.

What are the circumstances here? Your wife works
It's interesting that Gtown embraces the role of homemaker while his wife earns the family income, but he opposes the same roles for other couples. Apparently, he doesn't earn money.

No, kids suffer whenever the home is disrupted, and I wish there was no one going to war. I just don't know why any woman would want to complicate it.
Men and women fighting together, living together, and more and more problems will happen.
A kid named Jacob worked with my wife a few years ago, and talked of joining the marines. He did, and now he's dead, becouse he was shot by a fellow marine the other night along with a "woman", and then the marine that shot and killed them, shot and killed himself.
This kinda stuff will just get worse. People have a human nature.
War calls for complete concentration, and I realize I come up with things to make people think about reality.
Why are men and women seperated in our prison system?
that's my new thought of the day :)
It's not necessary for you to know why anyone wants what they want. A woman has a right to fight on the front lines. She doesn't care what you think about it, dear. You are irrelevant to her goals in life.

ROFLMAO! Is THAT how you think you come across?@@ Get real. You come across as an extremely bitter old harridan, with the top education of a 6th grade dropout who has no life. You're here from morning to night, 7 days a week in the last month or so.
"not so snappish"?? LOLOLOL!! Who DO you think you're kidding Inkstain?
Back to the comic book store with you. Stack those old zombie comics, or no job for you. Bitter, do you read your pwn posts?

I don't know how it is in other countries but in the US, a man can take family leave from work for the birth of his child. http://www.dol.gov/whd/fmla/

The only drawback to that is it's unpaid leave so unless dad saved up his vacation/sick days or has enough savings in the bank to take the time off, he won't get paid for it which is probably why a lot of men don't take advantage of the FMLA. FWIW, I know quite a few men who took leave when their baby was born. They made a point to save their vacation days so they'd have money coming in during the time they were off.

You are misinformed. Murder is a legal term. Abortion is legal. Therefore, abortion is not murder.

Yes my wife works, but she's home every morning and every night.
I'm not as backwards as ocean thinks, but I do like bringing up issues, to make people think, when they say things like women should be equal, but in reality, only in certain areas.
If a person can realize that they may be wrong on an issue, then they may question themselves ablout more important things.

GTown, you're a very interesting character, to say the very least. You take issue with women working outside of the home yet your wife works outside the home(regardless of what shift she works). You speak of sex and how it should only be had within the confines of marriage yet you've carried on a affair outside of wedlock. You speak of the sanctity of marriage yet you had a long term extramarital affair. You speak of how children should be raised in the same household as their parents(preferably a man and a woman) yet the woman you had an affair with is raising your child without you residing in their household. That's a whole lot of contradiction.

Since you think both genders are equal and have equal rights and none should be specific nurturers, why shouldn't men have a paternity leave?
Some insurance policies allow for male paternety leave.
