Love the blog and all the topics and opinions you bring out in your posts. I was reading through some of your posts and posts on other blogs and I am seeing a lot of battling between men and women. It seems that anytime a man or woman gets a chance to bash the other gender they take it upon themselves to do so. The constant bickering among the sexes is getting really trite and lame. I’m a woman and I get tired of reading comments from other women trashing men. Then you see men to the same thing but on the opposite pole. Why the hell is does it seem to be more of a battle between the sexes in society right now? Wanted to throw this idea to you for Open Friday and see what you and the readers think.

Thanks for reading FATC! I appreciate your readership a lot! Interesting question you bring to the table. I think it’s a complicated thing because we as a society have all in many drawn a line in the sand on whatever we are “down” with per say. Race, religion, political affiliation, and even the homosexual vs. heterosexual battle have become even stronger even though you would think as much our society has been through we would be closer to being cohesive. Both sides in every “debate” always feel they are losing ground to the other group. In the case of gender wars it is no different. I do think there can be things learned through these proverbial “battles”. These conversations do need to happen but I fear that most times it is more filibustering than actually an exchange of ideas and righteous learning being done. But, to really answer your question like I said it is just one of those battles we will have to get used to but not let it inundate our lives and energy. Because at the end of the day the negative energy we send out is what we will receive in return. If we want to have constructive dialogue in any of these “battles” we have to be an effective listener even more than an effective speaker but on the real most people love hearing themselves talk more.
