I advise against it. Being in any part of the government, let alone the defense department, would drive me crazy. Not to mention all the mind games you will have to play in order to justify the line of work to yourself.

People who buy into gender roles make me sick.

So when you see a little girl dressed in pink playing with a doll, and a boy dressed in blue playing guns, you throw up all over yourself?

C'mon, men and women are different, and as such contribute different things to the relationship. What I'm saying is that a man's role is much more defined and adhered to by most, than a woman's role.

By no means do I expect anyone, male or female, to adhere to the charts I posted above.

Judging by the comments I feel the need to have to explain what my wife and I were discussing. ( BTW, it was not a fight and I already know some dip shit will say something like “drr time for a new wife drrr”  )

Aaanyway, I noticed that there are certain things that my wife will NOT do around the house, such as take out the trash, cut the lawn, pick up after the dogs, check/change the oil in her car, etc. Which I have no problem with. However, after 10 years of being together and 4 years of marriage, I just noticed that there isn't anything in the house I get a free pass on. I cook often, clean, and share ALL  the household responsibilities with my lovely wife.  In our house, all the traditional female roles that women used to fill are BOTH our responsibilities. However, most “manly” responsibilities are filled by me alone and it is expected, by both of us, that I get them done.

I'm not complaining, I actually don't mind having a role as a man. Much like the article I posted, I find it interesting that if I were to propose a role or expect her to be responsible for something “womanly” I would get that killer look.

I think this will change once we have our baby(since I can't breast feed), but the situation that feminism created is an interesting one.  It is one in which the male gender role still exists, but a woman's gender role is nonexistent.

I was talking with my wife about this very topic about a month ago and I found this  ( http://artofmanliness.com/2009/12/20/what-can-manly-men-expect-of-women/ ) posting today that really summed up the point I was trying to make.

I'm interested in people's thoughts.

1939 Marital Rating Scale:



After having a good laugh, what Kate and I both noticed after reading through these charts was that while we could imagine a modern day woman expecting her husband to live up to most of the standards on the Husband’s Chart, if a man expected a woman to adhere to the Wife’s Chart, he’d probably be met with the look of death.

...

But these days a new double standard has emerged where it’s okay to celebrate men manning up, but telling women they need to recover some of their femininity is offensive. To wit:

A woman telling a man to stop looking like a slob and dress up. Awesome!

A man telling a woman to stop looking like a slob and take care of herself. Sexist!

Saying that men should stop hooking up with women. Awesome!

Saying that women should stop sleeping around. Sexist!

Saying that men should get off the couch and go to work. Awesome!

Saying that a woman should be nurturing with kids. Sexist!

Saying that men should take the initiative in relationships. Awesome!

Saying that a woman should let the man lead (ever!). Sexist!

Of course ethics matter. But only in the context that one lives in a society. And society rewards ethical behavior in the long run.

If we were able to live our lives isolated from one and other, ethics would not even exist. At that point, the only rule would be for one to stay alive, no matter what it takes.

I made the ginger duck Christmas day. I used the broth for a great tasting gravy and made a side of fried rice and chow main.  It was a nice addition to the traditional tamales we usually have. All around win.

Saw it last night. Great movie, but I can't say it's "enjoyable".

Covered almost everything from the book, and added more background scenes of the father/mother relationship before the big "event" (whatever caused the disaster isn't named but it's either nukes or asteroid).

I cried like a bunny at the end.

It is now playing in my town. I was going to watch it, but ended up seeing Avatar instead. Like you said, I don't imagine it being a feel good movie, and I didn't want to take my pregnant wife to see it. She is quite the bag of emotions right now.  :?

I hope it is still playing next week.

Even though this is Ian's forum, I really don't think the majority of regular posters care too much that he thinks of them as a freak show. I think it is a mini badge of honor. If they did care about what Ian or Mark thought about them, they would not last very long in here.

This place is great for hashing out ideas and shooting the shit. Like Brasky said, no one pulls punches, and I think if you really want to test your ideas, you have to be ready to give and take some blows.

I love this forum.

I have not found a smarter, funnier, bitchyer, or sexier group of people on the internet... Oh wait, scratch the sexier part.

Is 4chan sexier?

Heavens no. I was referring to the vast amounts of pornography on the internet.

Que R3 rant on herpies and superior sexiness.

It did bother me that the Jew 'Bastards' had such small parts though.

ROFL.  :lol: This sentence is freaking hilarious out of context.

The Nazi Colonel was off the hook.  

I agree. He was my favorite part of the movie. So intelligent, polite, and refined, yet such an evil person.
