It's all a brilliant ploy these wives of our's do....

"Honey..don't forget to take out the trash...."

when in reality it's a 2lb rubbermaid with a 1/2 a bag of trash in it..

but she somehow makes me believe I'm doing the macho thing.......

or is it,...

I let her think she's letting me think I'm Hulk Hogan

I agree that the male is built to be physically stronger..However that does not necessarily make him mentally or spiritually stronger..

Every woman is at heart a mother; every man is at heart a bachelor.

Boys will be boys and middle-aged men too!

Girls will be girls and middle-aged women too!

The old believe everything;
The middle aged suspect everything;
The young know everything.

Sometimes we 'weaker' women have to do the male tasks. I am in that position and have been for several years. I carry in our firewood and carry out the ashes. ( Our only heat is a wood stove.) I do all the mowing of our acre yard. If we have snow, I will be the one shoveling. All this is due to my husband's age and physical disabilities.
He also turned over the financial dealinigs to me, a long time ago, because he did not seem to have the ability to keep track of things.
He turned all the driving to me about 15 years ago...I still do not know why.
I look at it as being the helpmeet, in what ever way I am needed.

He has never ever took care of any of the housework, no matter what happened to me. I was used to that sort of behavior...my father never did either.

Sooo....what it all boils down to, we (women) do what we have to do, as long as we are able.

There are a lot of jobs women have taken on, that they do not have to do. They do them mostly because they wish to compete with the men. I never was of that mindset, and I do not think God meant for us to be.
I like the way He meant for it to be!

One moment here:

Quote:
1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
Dwell with your wife as unto a weaker vessel.

The Bible does not say that women are weaker.

Men should be with their wives as if their wives were weaker.

A woman could be stronger; many would argue that women are stronger in various ways.

Women can often withstand greater physical pain.

Women have far greater strength in their lions than man have in any of men's muscles.

Women.

Blingo Blango...

or as Ed McMahon would say "Heyyyyyy.... Ohhhhhhhh"

So doesn't that mean that both men and women are more likely to enter into sexual sin (by your definition?)

Judge.. I moved to have this case thrown out of court for lack of evidence.

It is hereby ordered.
YAWN! Lame argument. You have 1 loose woman doin 10 different guys, 5 of them married I'm sure.....(just saying) Okay but dirty movies and magazines and websites are MOSTLY targeting men. The supply and demand thing. There is not a huge demand for women's porn because women for the most part have higher morals than men. I live in a city and there are tons of strip clubs for men and only 1 for women! I'm just going by statistics and all. Look at Solomon....he had a gazillion women. Gross. And he is supposed to be wise??? HA! Please!
