I am Ewe in wolf's clothing.

Tibetan book of Living and Dying, Quote: - “Two people have been living in you all of your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to.” He … Read more

I'm all for equal pay and equal rights for both genders. To me this also means women should have the same PT standards in the military as their fellow men soldiers have. To me this also means if a woman physically assaults a man he has the right to physically defend himself.

What we all … Read more

Quite a controversial and sensitive topic. We already have it. Sure, both men and women are discriminated against and there are people who are sexist against women and people who are against men. But we cannot change that. We cannot change people's opinions on any subject. If you want to see gender inequality, just go … Read more

I have no problem with equality of rights, responsibilities and opportunities between the sexes. I don't know anyone outside the Middle East that does.

I do find it odd that equality has come to mean "being the same" and the last time I looked, men and women were very different, physically, personality-wise and in outlook.

When I married, I wanted a wife who would be my partner in this life.

I wanted to pool our individual talents, gifts, and unique understandings of reality to synergize what we were capable of creating.

We have accomplished that in fine fashion and have found that numerous people of various ages admire what they see in … Read more

Well you can start with genetics.

Our DNA is different since we each carry forth good and bad traits (mutations) from our parents whom carried them forth from their parents.

Then the environment we grew up in in regards to what we ate, drank, the gases and light elements we were exposed to . . . … Read more

The way our mind works.

Forget about different circumstances. Identical twins raised together will have much in common because of their upbringing and education yet they will still be individuals, differing from each other. Their minds interpret things differently so their personality develops as uniquely their own.

And as for triplets, that famous 20th century … Read more
