    I'm new to this but I got a few things I'd like to discuss.Firstly I need someone else's point of view on society' curse, the social mirror that is.Personally I feel that what we see today is some messed up idea some former hierarchy came up with and then implemented.This started with me questioning myself, my religion, hell, even what I believed in.Now I'm at a point where most of what is, seems wrong or at least inaccurate.Take marriage for example.

    People cheat and say it makes the relationship stronger. Come on now. Men having more than 1 wife was a natural occurance in past social structures, today it is shunned the same a rapist is. Here is a statistic, if every man in the world married 1 woman ther would still be countless unwedded women. Why's that? Indeed there is a reason.African culture says tha a man with more than 1 wife is a strong, not wealthy man. I guess when the slaves were "freed" they loss their culture with their shackles?

    Secondly, and lastly, equality. Men and women are equal. That's true. To a point. Plainly a man is a degree higher. I say this because if I were in bed with my wife at 3:00 am. and heard a noise similar to a window being broken and turned and handed her a weapon and said "I heard something downstairs, go check it out." she would furiously refuse and then question my morals. On the other hand if I were asked to do a chore by my wife and refused, I would unethical again. We are equal to a point.

    That is part of the problem...women want to be equal in the areas that want to be equal in...and I agree that equal work should get equal pay...in other areas, they want to just be a woman and be protected. It doesn't always work both ways...

    yes but a true love of a man will see fit to see it work
    but again we lack these men to a point
    da world is upside down on it's ax........it where wo-man is
    labled to be as equal as men yet humble to be covered in
    comfort but most forget the ground rules of man & woman
