    Well, you are on a bus in NYC. Is that really an unusual experience?

    Hmm. I hadn't looked at it like that at all. I use the line " Generalizing isn't apart critical thinking" a lot. I am being hypocritical in this case. I can see now what you are talking about, I did generalize, I can't take my personal experience as the only experience there is.

    True. I myself haven't fully grown up and achieved a understanding of the world quite yet. I can't expect everyone to have the same aspirations or experiences as me. Another area in which I am hypocritical; I often tell vegetarians in debates that just because they can eat just vegetables doesn't mean I can (serious digestion problems). I guess I am trying to drive a car before crawling in this case, I need to realize that I can't just become something that I have to take baby steps as does everyone; apart of crossing that gap between teenager and adult.

    I have come to realize the true meaning behind the bringing up woman, especially in the shaving case. I have come to understand that it wasn't so much about gender but the fact that society changes, woman didn't shave up until the 1900s I am told, meaning that men shaving their chests and arms isn't wrong or bad but apart of change that happens with an aging society. Who knows, men dying their hair red and black could become the new norm. I am not really good at language again so that is my example to tell my point. Again another place where I am being the grumpy old man and hypocritical because I always talk about how important the melting pot is.

    I find myself to be more open minded and not so rigged in my opinions. That the best opinions are ones that are thought out. Also again I've seen that I am very hypocritical, saying that people should follow my rules when even I don't. No different that a pastor who is anti-gay yet quietly gay. I can improve by simply thinking about it, using the KISS system and never going with my first thought.

    Understood. Again Star Trek is a great example: "Don't be a great man, just be a man. - Zefram Cochrane" I my case it goes "Don't try to be a real man, just be a man."

    Socety as a whole is constantly changing and evolving, a hundred years ago., It was thought a woman's place was in the home. Now of course someone holding that opinion today would be considered to be holding an out dated viewpoint(s). What was expected by a man has change as well in those years. Both men and women are equally capabale of doing jobs that at one time where considered more gender specific. And true whilst some jobs are more dominated by one gender than the other, is that more down to scoeity as a whole hasn't quite fully embraced that concept.

    Surely we should have the best person for the job regardless of gender.
