Of course! However, as far as Manchild is concerned, a woman is incredibly selfish if she requires more from her marriage other than food and shelter. People like this, typically men, believe that a marital bond is limited to the man providing money and the woman providing children. He's addressed the community benefits, but fails to address the social and relationship dynamics involved. Perhaps he thinks that eventually women will simply accept their status and "deal with" no longer...

Re: Is Race Real?

And that's often the exact reason this unqualified factoid is invoked. I would say that people, Black/White, have varying Agendas. The fact that the DNA supported "myth" of race is totally irrelevant to the real life experiences of people who can testify that "Race Is Real" will not change those with those Agendas. They are motivated by something other than reality and logic. For some, I continue to call it "The ROOTS Syndrome". For all of them... they simple want "race" to go away. I submit...
