    I learned from men that there is everything right with being yourself.  Especially with confidence.  It is the epitome of beauty, loveliness and sexy!

    Women are equal to men!

    When I was growing up there was still a notion to teach boys and young men to place girls and women on somewhat of a "pedestal". In hindsight I suspect much of chivalry is based in sexism. (Considering women to be the “weaker” sex).
    In many respects men tended to treat women like children rather than equal partners.
    Women were to be “looked after” and “protected”.
    This was long before we had TV shows such as "Cheaters" or "The Maury Povich Show" which illustrate that women are just as capable of lying, cheating, and abusing as much as men.

    Today in the business world women are seen as “competitors” and in the private world they are seen as “partners” and not dependents.
    Unfortunately there are people of both sexes that prefer the old way versus the new and vice versa. It’s difficult to view someone as being “special” and “equal” all at once.
    Chivalry gave way to Equality!

    That if men had periods, there would be something called "international period day" or something...lol...

    Seriously, I've learnt that men and women have equal amounts of emotional neuroses, men just hide them better (sometimes).

    Tell it how it is!  Men appreciate the honest AND SHORT truth!

    ... Not to assume that something someone says is representative of everything one has to say about anything - I had a Wife who I'd always listen to, but with such narrow appraisal that I'd take a single statement to be definitive of her perspective, which in actuality was much wider (and wiser) than any single statement could express...

    Stopping to widen my own perspective on her words, her actions, and herself in general helped me to appreciate her as an indefinably dynamic and wondrous person - and I rarely make the mistake anymore of seeing anyone's words as their LAST word on a subject.

    Not everyone thinks the way you do. Especially the opposite sex.

    Women taught me how deep love can reach. Although I do not understand this love that the mother has for a child is something divine and indescribable.

    That no matter who they are they are never going to be as superior or as arrogant as they would like to portray, & for the main of the time it is a wall they have built up for protection, and if you look carefully beneath the surface, you will see a really lovely person!!

    Treat them like angels. Well, thats what i have learnt. We see people crying over the gender equality, i think i m with it. But we still are a lot of different than the women.
    I guess everything is different.
