Dollars to doughnuts, these are the same types of women who complained that a woman couldn't get in pro baseball, basketball, combat, or on a submarine. You don't need a uterus to knit, and you don't need a pointy doodah to shoot a hoop.

Yeah, no kidding, it's just more of your stereotypical nonsense, only thing that women can do better than guys, is have kids. And the only thing that men can do better than women, is get the women pregnant. heh, almost everything else seems to be pretty much on equal footing.

hehe I take it that this is part of the feminine mystique, but I jest.

I want my dh to learn but he won't.. I've showed him the pictures of Russel Crowe, I showed him the article on the Marine, I showed him the website where knitting began, I tivoed Jane Pauley today so he could hear them mention Russell crowe and still :crying: he won't... When I first started he let me show him and he tried... and gave up since then he won't pick them up..

heh, from what I've found out is, as long as somebody has a picture in their head that something is "Female" or "Male" only, then nothing is going to persuade them otherwise. Once they drop that idea, there won't be any stopping them.
