    Agreed. We felt the same way but didn't write a letter. :) Although we did ask that the grandparents not buy them too many toys at Christmastime but my in-laws were so bad at thinking of anything...

    Well, sure, in the extreme sense - yes, someone that is going to do nothing but work will have more chance for advancement than someone that wants to have a life, as well. Which is another sad...

    Why? Men can. They do it all the time. Why is it different for women?

    Just editing to add: and paid maternity leave is available in MANY other countries...just not the U.S. So...what's the...

    How is this even comparable? Being pregnant doesn't (and shouldn't ) give any woman an advantage....not with regard to skills or seniority or advancement. But allowing a temporary leave from an...

    I doubt most companies would take her back that quickly after birth. Not to mention...who do you leave the newborn baby with?? I don't imagine you could find a daycare ANYWHERE that would take a...

    Oh good lord. :rolleyes:

    You may choose not to have children, but unfortunately...in order for our society to continue...someone has to have the kids, and the men can't do it.

    It's...

    And yet, if it happens during the FMLA leave of a pregnant woman, that is a BIG problem. Which is why you let people go when they don't work out, not after they request FLMA.

    OP, I'm sorry that...

    I had the same exact thoughts when I read this article, and think the writer needs some therapy to figure out where her "pain" is coming from.

    My children are adopted, and although they are...

    Agreed.

    I try not to open my front door, but to go out my side door which has a deck with railing and bring the dogs with me....then I can call over to the person at the front door without...

    This is such weird post. What are you really afraid of?

    I can think of many men that I know who have bought and dressed their babies/toddlers and children (girls AND boys) in all kinds of "cute...

    A few months ago I was on my way to a dog show and had an early ring time so I'd been up since 4:30am and was frazzled and grumpy. When I pulled into the parking lot, one of the lot attendants, an...

    Yes, I agree (my horses live like this 24/7 anyway). I wouldn't do the "and that's it" thing as was mentioned above. All horses under a barn's care should receive the same level of care (per their...

    Yes, you can't take the keys with you while the car is running, but you can easily leave them in the car with the car running. I do this all the time when I'm driving around with my kids - they want...

    What does that even mean?

    And if you're commenting that I said +P is required, you need to read again. I never said that, because it's not true for many dogs. But it is difficult to teach...

    But your personal observations of gay acquaintances are miniscule in comparison to the number of gay people in the world. Not to mention, they are probably not really true, either. Somehow the gay...

    I think you need to meet more gay people. I think both your examples are highly uncommon, if they are even true. People don't become gay by being raised by gay parents anymore than hetero kids are...

    Oh good lord.

    Nothing she said in her post suggests that this man is "using his child to play dress up" or entering in beauty pageants. However, there are certainly a LOT of women that care a...

    Yes, lots of dogs are very protective in their cars, even if they are nice otherwise. And some dogs are just not nice - so it's not necessarily anything that you did. I think the dog stayed in the...

    Oh definitely. Took my daughter out to practice driving yesterday and she got out without turning off the car. It's very quiet, and if you're distracted (or a new driver), it wouldn't be hard to...

    Because no one's grandmother can teach them to sew. Or their father? Or their gay father?

    I agree - let's see those studies that control for socioeconomic status that prove this. I doubt it. ...

    Yeah...it was a joke. :cool: hence the scientific journal reference if they did.

    But...once born...can we really argue that two men can't raise a child as well as a man and a woman? Really? ...

    Yes, but it was a malfunctioning electric fence, not a training collar, so it's not even relevant.

    And your statement "I don't use prongs, I don't use or recommend e-collars" is exactly my...
