There was a time when people would try to keep their sexist thoughts to themselves. I guess that time has passed and people feel it is OK to express them now.

What will the next thread be something along the lines on how different races think?

Actually, from my view of the world, things have changed dramatically from the era of Archie Bunker speak to now, where many would probably say today we are overly politically correct. Thats not to say interactions/attitudes are now perfect between diverse groups, far from it, but we as a society have come a long way for the better in my opinion.

LOL, what I heard was that OP and other responders are sexist. Also, I was under the impression that Dex was a man. Oh by the way, I enjoyed the song.

I understand the Packers and the Steelers; but who is this William and Kate you refer to?

Kate is the one with the 8 kids (twins and sextuplets). But I don't think William is the ex's name.

Oh my, those You tubes were great....

I just did a week of military duty - all men.....wow, (warning non-PC statement coming) I forgot sometimes how emotionally sensitive some men are especially to what women say/do.....couple of train wrecks there hanging on to some not-so-nice women...I made a comment to my boss "so sorry women can really screw men up." He laughed pretty hard at that one (he's not one of the train wrecks).

Disclaimer - I'm a woman who has worked mainly in male-dominated professions, but truly am female....

I think it would be rather boring if women and men didn't have so many differences.

I can think of a few that are fascinating....

All woman here, but I will admit that so many years of w*rking with and hanging around with men has influenced my thinking.
I find it very difficult to relate to groups of people because there is very little logic and too much emotion used in very simple communication. It is very frustrating.
Mr B is actually the grey area guy. I am strictly black and white and tend to take things literally, i.e. if you said something, you own the consequences. I have very little, if any, patience for idle gossip and negativity.
