I have considered counseling, but I'm busy building my career since women like men with money.

Yes, American women are prone to filing for divorce more quickly than men. There's men who are like that too.
When confronted, you shoot down your own comments.
Why would I need a man with money?
I have a career, live a pretty fabulous existence, travel the world and don't have an anchor around my ankles to stop me.

You have a pretty skewed view of the world.

What nonsense are we spreading?
We're finding your every changing arguments and stepping back from them pretty funny and unfortunately typical.
I don't think any of the feared feminists who are posting look at all men as we do at you, an individual male.
We're a little more mature than that.

No surprise.
Can't find a woman to take hostage?
I get it, they've fought back.

started out good part of civil rights but the tool to establish a level playing field rapidly got fashioned into a weapon. what started out as a plea for power share quickly turned into a power grab. as to the moral giant predicted by gloria steinem a giant who was to rise to reform home and office, it did not happen. it would appear that we become what we hate.

That you women are coming on here calling me a misogynists. When people spread nonsense, I try not to react of their ridiculous trash.

Last US census in 2000:

138.1 million (male)
143.4 million (female)

2007 estimates say 51.35% female and 48.65% male.

Ah, so you think women are simply animals and lesser than you.
This is getting better all the time.

Do you realize what you're revealing about yourself?

This is going to be great sport, but I have to run & have plans for after work.

This post speaks volumes.

I hope it bothers you at night to think that I have rights to an abortion and that I am working toward my career.

I hope it bothers you that I don't need a man and do not believe that marriage is sacred. I would have no problem divorcing my husband if he ever does anything to me.

It really is quite simple. A feminist is anyone that supports the notion of political, economic and social equality of the sexes. The belief that each individual is a valuable human being in his or her own right. Feminists can be anyone in the population, man or woman. Anyone that believes and supports the notion is a feminist.

Are you honestly surprised that your poll has ruffled feathers? How can anyone make the assumption that I am a lesser person by virtue of the fact that I was born a woman, without knowing the first thing about me?

Perhaps my views of feminism have strengthened even more now that I have a daughter. I want her to believe that she is just as capable as anyone else, and can follow her dreams, even if she is "just a girl". Is that really such a bad thing?
