I just wanted to add a couple of things lest my
earlier post be misunderstood. I was not hot under
the collar when I wrote it. I do not dislike/hate
men. Some of my best friends ARE men. A couple of
them are even members of this group. Right Mike and
Papa Beaver? ;^)
I would like to add that while I strongly feel that
women can build boys into strong men, I also strongly
feel that men are necessary for girls to become women.
Watch a little girl sometime with her daddy. Daddy
is who we females practice our feminine skills/wiles
on. It's safe to do so with good ole dad. Have you
ever seen a little girl flirt with her dad? It's
pretty cute to watch. Or maybe I should say,
daddy/grandpa/uncle/ big brother.....you get the idea.
Personally I am truly trying to understand what men
can teach boys about being men that women cannot teach
them. I just wish someone would tell me, so that I
can understand it. I might even agree then, you never
