Gotta throw the other sex in ...let's keep the girls happy.  But seriously,
isn't this sexism thing getting a little out of hand?  Most of the posts I see
on here are related to discrimination of one thing or another.  The fact is,
we are all equals.  When I write something, my ego is involved in the actual
act of writing, but not necessarily in the message I am trying to convey.
What I'm trying to say is, most of us write from our point of view.  If we are
male, we write from a male point of view.  If we are female ...likewise.  If
we have to worry about being politically correct in everything we write, we
are going to waste a lot of time making sure we are not going to insult
someone else's ego with our message.  In my opinion, this is time that could
be better spent in discovering how to better help humanity, rather than
squabbling over attributes of our lower manas that are subject to change when
we pass on.
