BTW, my comments about "doing nails and hair" and all the other ones like that were tongue-in-cheek ways at showing the hypocrisy. While Oprah and Sarah Palin can be openly sexist, they complain about every little thing that men do as being sexist.

Again, who says that the father doesn't do all this? My assistant coach really does most of the work in raising his son. Many families rely on the kids themselves to wash their clothes or to do their homework. And I see PLENTY of men who exercise and who manscape and who get haircuts and other things that men do to remain attractive to their wives/girlfriends.

It just shows the egocentrism that is so prevalent in women who think this way. They think they are the only ones who have it rough, but everyone in society has responsibilities and in a family unit those responsibilities are amplified.

She is.
She is considered to be one of the 10 most influential liberals in America and she's credited by many for helping the president get elected in 2008.
There are these things called DVRs and millions of women use them to record Oprah every day. When she suggests that people read a book, it becomes a bestseller. When she promotes a product, it becomes a success. Her influence is felt around the world.

The simple fact of the matter is that being sexist towards men has become totally acceptable for women. TV shows and commercials can depict men as bumbling fools who can't do anything without their wives, but they cannot depict a woman in a 50s style without facing some backlash (unless it's a parody).

I think the point is that if some show popular with male audience made a sexist remark against women, it would outrage women.

See how the reverse is unacceptable?

That is the hypocrisy.

Because they're women. If these people made sexist remarks about men, they wouldn't be classified as homosexual. But if men did, they would take any criticism. If women take over and feminism rises, its going to get worse.

While America is changing, I'm still glad that I wasn't born a woman. I do believe that its okay for women to be sexist against other women though.

Now, I agree with the first poster...hush and go mow the lawn..or lift something heavy. Isnt that what men are for in the first place?
Seriously America is becoming overpopulated. Too many women are obsessed with parenthood. People are spreading kids out of no where.

I completely agree with you. A lot of women cannot find any fulfillment outside of childrearing. Of course a lot of this is due to female biology, but at the rate we are going on this planet, it will be a catastrophe.

Look at China. It already is (and I'm not talking about their GDP).

Those are few of the reasons why I don't trust women because they just want kids and will sabotage birth control methods.

Most people (usually women) are unaware of overpopulation and how worse its going to get if people continue to breed.

Maybe of them believe that children are cute and blessing.

Too bad your own parents did not agree with this.

And too bad yours didn't feel the same about you. One less of the opposite a man has to worry about.

You are trully anti-woman. Fortunately, many folks do not agree with this whole "overpopulation" hysteria. What happens when the birth rate gets so low that society cannot even sustain itself?

The earth will regain its natural harmony and balance. Landfills of trash will eventually biodegrade without mountains of trash endlessly being added. The Pacific ocean's toxic plastic soup will at least not have more added to it either. Animals once near the brink of extinction will return. Beauty will return.

When you say society, you mean people. We're the ones killing the planet, so sustaining the killing is not a good idea for the planet OR ourselves.
