I suggest that all women who want to be "led" around by a man for the sake of allowing him to keep his masculinity stand up and say "I!" hmmm.... I hear silence...... I listened to a discussion on the radio of all the domestic abuse cases in family court and how hard it is for women to get restraining orders to protect them from spouses who are "claiming their role of being the boss." It's sickening! Women and children get NO protection in this society from sexual abuse, spouse abuse or from being raped. And yet 52,000 "Christian" men get together in a football stadium (the center of male worship) to take back their leadership! If you want to call me a male basher, go ahead, but the next time you walk down the street take note of women who have black-and-blue marks all over their face and their arms. I'll bet my last dollar it wasn't another woman who put them there! -- KAREN * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Karen Grasse Coordinator, Special Projects Office of CEO/Dean University of Pennsylvania Medical Center E-MAIL: grasse@pobox.upenn.edu TEL: (215)898-0748 FAX: (215)898-6599 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
