  1. I think you are a very good writer and I admire your ability.

    I have the impression that as far as you are concerned women always have the moral high ground. Not all men earn big salaries and occupy positions of power. Not all men ignore the opinions of women.

    I grew up in a lower middle class strict Catholic family in the mid west. I have seen plenty of men, my own father, work themselves to death to support a family. My Mother worked very hard also.

    Why do you find it necessary to denigrate men.


Talk to me, Goose.
