RE: Happy International Women's Day.
We need more women in charge.

Also, we make up half the population and we only get a day??

For his time and generation, my maternal grandfather was a hardcore feminist. He felt that men should - by law - be prohibited from entering politics, voting, practicing law or medicine, owning property in their own name, or entering an establishment that served alcohol unless accompanied by a female relative. This was exactly the situation in Ireland the year his own father was born, but for women instead of men. His justification was that men have been in charge forever and bollixed everything up, and it was high time to 'let the girls have a go'.

I've personally found the only good ones to be hard.

So, not only is a good man hard to find, but a hard man is good to find?  Wink

Yeah, happy birthday to women.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Women may not rule the world at this time, but they certainly do make it go round. I'm all in for International Women's Day.
