    I have not heard a woman say that. I am sure there are women who do, I just have never heard that before. I have heard women complain about many things they look for in a partner. Like a guy expecting her to wait on him and not willing to commit and various other things not being manly was not a reason that I have heard.


I hear it all the time and you still see it in movies and commercials...the big brawny handyman the ladies look at. And yes I know this is done with lovely ladies as well, but that's another point/topic. \:\) As for hearing it...I hear it alllllll the time. And no not from my gf ;P

    What is masculine is as mutable as what is feminine in my view. It changes over time.


Yes...and does this not back up what I said? The very mutability makes things harder, especially in an era where this mutability is far faster than any other centuries.

    I mean I think it is common sense that guys should not just cat call at girls, or that do not do anything with somebody that is not interested. I just do not think it is offensive in the least to make a message like this. It is manly to teach kids to respect women, each other and the world around you. Does not mean you have to like everybody.


Cat call...yeah bad, but compliments? Compliments should be fine.
And yes...you should never do something with another persons body they don't want you to. (Example that scumbag of a nurse who preyed on his patients comatose body and made her pregnant...this is an abhorrent thing he did).

As for the commercials message...I think that's exactly what I stated in my first post...there is nothing wrong with its message. I think its showing the fathers (99% of them) as complete douche bags implying men are THE PROBLEM, added to the constant negative male bashing that's become the norm. Not saying many men don't have to be taken to account on this but its become the norm to male bash.

    That should not be masculine or feminine. Should just be the way it is when raising children.


Don't disagree...though I have seen some very compelling evidence that its actually good to let your kids fight a little when young. Human beings are animals...not "like" animals. We ARE animals. There is something in us that drives us to compete against each other...test ourselves against others etc...the problem is the bullying and emotional issues that get wrapped up in it. I am not 100% sure what the solution is to this, though I agree bullying etc...helps no one (well it helped me in learning to fight back and stand up for myself when I was a kid, but I don't speak for everyone on that I am sure).
