Now we need to find a lot of women.
You really, really, need to learn about women and their lives.

It is interesting that in this thread If you are a man and disagreeing, then you get the man label.
Whereas if you are a man and agreeing, you don't?

Catsmate, behave yourself and read the thread please.

Whichever little bastard told my niece that her fierce t-rex shirt is "for boys, not girls" and made her cry can get bent. I got her that shirt. The skeleton glows in the dark. It is awesome.

She has, however, chosen as many little girls do, a princess as a heroine role model.

She picked Azula, from Avatar.
If their childs peers parents were also of the same opinion it would be so much easier.
I don't want any sort of ant hive society or anything,
but it would be nice if everyone were just allowed to not have to conform to this bollox.

Most people simply inherit behaviors from their parents, so it can't be as easy as being stern with them.

I read back through the last several pages, and I don't follow what you mean by "getting the man label". Can you elaborate?

It's so strange... that was my takeaway when I read your post the first time.
The very FIRST time.
I must be psykic.
