Knowing your place

    Women, some men don't like aggressive females. They say there is only room for one man in the boardroom and the bedroom. Do you think there is ever a time that you should stay in your place when it comes to debating with men or do you think you should always remain true to yourself no matter what?

      My first question is, who  ever determined "a woman's place", to start with, other than men? I believe a woman should always remain true to herself, that is her intended place.

      No one respects a door mat but I think we should all use wisdom and respect when debating with our mates. Any man who uses terms such as "women should stay in their places" may be a little controlling so watch out for that.

    Women should wear smocks and do washing and cooking and useful stuff - and the way to keep them there is all become kristians cos those damn kirstian women know their place and the men get to interpet the book for them cos they am so stoopid they dont know nuthin.  But I don't think the men should be beatin on em more than twice a week cos they should be havin ten or twelve kids dontcherknow big_smile

        Just making a short compilation gleaned from forum threads over the past couple of months big_smile

        And an intelligent reply has some meaning in it.

      china man: I am a Christian man we do not try to put women in their place we allow them to discover where best they feel they would provide the best in a loving relationship. We do not interpret the Bible for our women either they are intelligent enough to read it and interpret it them selves and whatever they don't understand, they can learn on their own from reading. We do not force feed them. Christian women are some of the most intelligent women in the world, at least they can out read and write and speak you for you appear not to be able to write or spell anyhthing. You appear to be a very ignorant excuse for a man, not even a man.

        No need to get abusive old chap !  I just compiled a list of what has been posted here in these forums by christians recently - who tell us that the man is the man in the house and the wife is expected to have sex when they require it, please their man' and it is for the man to interpret the bible to them - all justified by yards of scripture and arms loads of posts.

        Maybe you aren't man enough to take control of your christian woman like the others seem to ?

          I think you have confused Christian husbands and wives with Muslim husbands and baby makers referred to as wives. You view of Christians is totally wrong Christians believe that the husband should see the wife as someone to be loved and respected not used and abused.

            Shame you didn't pop out and put this view in the rash of christian threads relating to this very subject recently.  The christian concensus seemed to be as I stated in my joke reply  - and I think your stick in the eye for Muslims is misdirected and shameful.

              If I shame Muslims that is good. If I shame you and your ugly view of Christians and how they treat their women, that too is good.

                Not my view - this all came from the christians on these threads.

                They also showed themselves as bigots, I guess that comes from the book they quoted to back up hteir 'position'.

                    Well I guess it islike brands of corn flakes - they all brand themselves something different but they are all corn and they are all flakes.

                    I take it 'your' brand of christian are different to their brand then ?

            I seem to remeber dancing is allowed anyway - you will just have to rebel in some other way, like having an opinion or something.

    Depends on what you mean by "aggressive," I guess.

    Women who are emotionally or physically abusive are bad, just like men who are emotionally or physically abusive.

    But guys who feel threatened by women being assertive have control issues, tiny ****s, or both. No self respecting woman would waste her time. tongue

      I agree, Kerryg.

      Libra, any worthy man is going to *prefer* an assertive female.

      Be yourself.  Don't let those swine give you any guff.  smile

            Be careful with that tape, putting it on is ok - pulling it off is worse than waxing !

    a woman should be who she is, and have wisdom enough to know when to say or do what she feels is right. there's a big difference between assertiveness and being a $%tch.

    My 'place' as a woman is wherever I choose it to be, and I don't need any man's permission to be myself.
