The OP asked, presumably women, to say what they wanted. He was explicitly asking for anecdotal stories. I'm sorry you're not interested in hearing from a woman, what a woman wants or thinks.
And boy did you go for it.
As did you.
Simon, maybe you can explain to me what Unseen's problem is right now. He seems to think asking questions is the same as whining. I'm trying to engage, but his panties are in a wad over the fact I wrote too much.
You owned him.
I think maybe he doesn't like clever people, I'm not sure.
I was owned? Please!
Why shouldn't I have? You and I have had other discussions before on other topics. Why do you resent my input on this? Have I said something offensive? Do you dislike my opinion? I feel some weird resentment coming at me from you and I'm not sure why. You're on TA everyday, giving in-depth opinions. Why am I not entitled to do the same?
I don't whine if someone takes me on. I'm not always taken on politely, I might add.
I don't see any whining, all I see is passive-aggression.
You're not taking me on. You haven't responded to one thing I've said, aside from the post about you making sweeping generalizations. I appreciate your citations. Asking you questions is not "whining". What's your problem? Take on my arguments, not the fact I dare speak to you.
Haven't responded? I provided a link that EXPLAINS how statistics showing that women make less don't tell the whole story. About how, for example, women who voluntarily choose to work less skew the statistics and make salary comparisons fairly irrelevant.
It's not a very long read.
