HI Patti, (thanks for taking the time to send me a personal e-mail. That made me feel very welcome. This was a very giving thing for you to do.

I first want to tell you how much I support and encourage this forum to be read my many as an alternative solution to that which mainstream has to offer. There is so much unbalance in the world, and it's needs a female to interject her wisdom, care, love, strength and insights on a very violent society and world.

I am going to set myself apart from you in this one little way. As part of your introduction to this blog you wrote this

"Males are the "Secondary Citizens" - a little "Revenge" from what men had done to women for centuries."

To me this is adversarial, I do know from which you speak, and it makes a great sound bite. But I prefer to feel as though women are offering an alternative solution to the worlds problem, rather then get their revenge. I'm also a person who believes that equal rights are just that equal, there is no "one up woman/manship" when all are equal.

I'm here to proclaim that putting on a dress neither makes me less of a person, nor more of a person. Just a person who knows the wiles of women can solve many a crisis if we don't mix it up with old stereotypes.

I believe to gain favor and participation, one should not be confrontational, only smart, educated, able, and carry a really big stick if others won't co-operate! LOL

So yes, let us look at the world from a females perspective and see what we can do with this new outlook. Lets not look back at the negative, because it dirties the windshield, which is what we need to look through, when moving forward.

OK, it's all yours, and thank you for making that so. I hope I haven't upset anyone's tea cart, instead prompted some more wonderful conversations.
