No it didnt.

I posted a department of labor sourced article last week talking about women in the worlforce post WW2 (BEFORE outsourcing)

Even the gay men that I know wouldn't agree with that.

I mean, look around you. Everything that allows you to be safe, comfortable, to drive your car, communication, on and on and on was invented, created, and maintained by men.
So, you couldn't survive with out your car and your telephone?

And you might want to take a look at this -

If you need your car to survive - would you be happy if it didn't have heat? Are you willing to give up your refrigerator?

Besides - most people actually like human beings based on their personalities and don't automatically discount an entire gender based on their gender alone.

Honestly, I feel kind of bad engaging with you. You are obviously not in a healthy place emotionally and I feel like you get off on the attention you receive here for saying things that are obviously off.
