So, I've actually started thinking in "that way" again...
I understand that humans are social creatures, but lately I have been wondering who/how I would be without social learning. Everything I am and like is learned from somewhere. What if I had been one of those children left in the woods. What would I be like. Would I create music and words and stories? Would I still develop likes and dislikes? Why is it no longer enough just to survive? I am so anti- a bunch of things that I am a part of. I am very anti-technology. We are destroying our world and ourselves with it. I often yearn to live in "pioneer times", where we had to live off the land. I am anti-femenist and anti-american, but I believe that EVERYONE should be treated according to their rights as an individual.
Life is so contrary. I am so impressionable.
I don't like America. If I had the opportunity to move out of the country, I would. I don't see why we as a people think that America is so great.
I think I've said before, I dislike America as a country, but I don't hold it against my friends who live there. I guess technically it is the government I hate, since they are responsible, ultimately, for all the crapiness. ie education, healthcare, war, stupid things like the patriot act, etc.
Yeah, I really am very masculine in the way I see women and what their role should be.
How come? Like in what way?
You are so going to think less of me for this.
I think the woman's place is in the home. I think a wife is a man's support. I think being a (good) mother and having a career are mutually exclusive.
Too much religious indoctrination I guess.
I don't think less of you for it. Quite the opposite in fact. I think that households ran a lot better when there was a woman at home. I think that now women are forced to get jobs and have careers to maintain their standard of living and then children do not get raised and socialized properly.
That said, I don't think a wife's only role should be to support her husband and family. That, in my opinion would be selling ourselves short. I have my drivers license, I vote, I make money, and I have the potential to influence the public sphere on a global scale. That seems pretty amazing to me considering that we were once thought of as someones property. I am grateful that I have those options even if I chose not to take them.
Women and men have different roles in society, it's just a matter of defining ourselves on our own terms rather than through the eyes of men.
Yay. Lizbee doesn't hate me :)
Well, yeah, I don't think her only role is to support her husband... The voting and driving, etc is where individual rights come in. I'm not much for politics, so maybe there is a better terminology for where I stand.
