    Times are a changin!

    aiya, look at things tis way. if some1 organize a pretty female model 2 shoot guys will SURE PAY, if some1 organizes a hunk model shoot will gals pay?

    even if some gals dun mind paying. d ratio of guys paying a pretty female model will b far higher den d other way round!!

    however if one look from a woman's pt of view.. after divorce ...guess what? who's 'market value' drops more? a 40 year olds guy or a 40 years old woman? ever wonder how we women suffered monthly for the pms, menstrual cramp, endured 10 mths to give birth, menopause and not forgetting more complications at different stage of life.

    sg women are quite pai mia. our grandmothers and mothers mostly stayed at home, sg women have to go out to work, juggle housework, look after kids and keep husbands happy

    think again, if you think guys are on the losing end, as to why there's a Women Chapter to protect us lor.

    marriage isnt about romance, it's about commitment & responsibilities. i heard it's becos you owed each other in your previous lives, it's about paying back the debts this life time.



    wahhhh i wrote so much
    I beg to differ. Not from your examples. But your perspective. Everyone will want the otherside to understand your perspective and constraints. Women say men don't understand, men say women don't understand yadda yadda. True communication and progress for both gender only happens when people makes decisions after understanding the other perspective. i.e. Men try to understand women (NOT make woman understand men) and women try to understand men (NOT try to make men understand women).

    COnfusing? actually easy to understand.

    all starting to bombard me le. am i the only woman replying

    it's always like that, we always assume that the other party would change but end up, it's either the woman changes herself to suit the guy, or the guy just keeps enduring the woman's nagging. he shuts off, she nags. he hopes she shuts up, she nags more hopefully to get her pts across. i for one go away when there're arguments. reason? never ending one.

    that's why they always say, open both eyes before marriage, close BOTH eyes after marriage - edited version, should be close one eye after marriage

    Your assumption are basied on the if the female gives birth. There many childless couples now a days. Ladies can simply choose to live life without the burdon of having a kid.

    hmm tats true, but i thought man have been laid not just a duty, but a set of law to make sure that they conform to the stringent 'manhood' law.. its definitely not applicable to gays & ah guas.. imagine since young we have to stand up & pee instead you gals relax & sit down... thats the turning point... gals does not have the duty to provide for the family, man are being slapped with the law to provide for the family... u ever see a group of kids, maybe 1 girl & 1 boy fall down, den the parents will say, boy cannot cry, u next time man, must take care of the family, so u cannot cry... den whereas, the girl cry, the parents still sayang them, orr pain pain hor, ok daddy mommy sayang... ahhh guu guu...

    so u think who more jia lat leh? woman can live on man, man cannot live on woman, even if both agree, the society does not, and the society is a powerful weapon of mass destruction..

Just because you're not affected by racists or sexcists laws doesn't make it ok for those laws to be in place.
    Erm. Women's Charter are international, they've a group of people working on it and coming up with new better 'laws' and also to educate women to let them know their rights.

    All I can say is, let's not confuse fairness with equality. Two very different issues all together. They're are as similar as ethics and law.

    You seems to know the opposite gender pretty well eh?

    I am not sexist. I repect the opposite gender for the role they play. Sometimes I hate to see it this way, its like some kinda retribution to the males. In the older days, the men brings back the bread, they have greater influence over the family to a certain extend down playing the women's role. Seems like we are getting our just dessert now.

    I am not picking on you just challenging thoughts only... there can never be true equality, someone will always feel short-changed and someone will always try to exploit that's human nature, the strong will prevail.
