If you are a woman, or if you care about someone who is or will be, you may want to read this.

Good article. Dennis Prager is packed to the neck with smarts.

I think I'm gonna go cry, and if you say I'm silly then you're a chauvinistic pig.

That was another fantastic article by Mr. Prager. His mind is so valuable.

Feminism seems like another example of "overcorrection." Women became fed up but instead of attacking misogynistic attitudes they "threw the baby out with the bathwater." Females are definitely confused these days.

Perhaps another reason (a direct result of feminism?)that women are depressed is how divorce has lost much of its stigma. Not only do they stress about keeping the marriage strong, they may also wonder continually if they should even stay in the marriage. There is the positive trend of women being encouraged to "remember their spirits" and to EXPECT everything for themselves, but the concept is so intangible (therefore elusive) that it can cause stress for the overactive female mind. The culture I like to refer to as "Oprah women" comes to mind.

In the article, he points out how women are not taught to control their emotions. I think controlling emotions is either unrealistic or irrelevant. The emphasis should be on behaving in spite of emotions. The lack of any values, any purpose, beyond oneself is hurting the entire "me-generation"
Yay for "Think A Second Time"!
