    I do for gays but not for women and children.


    When it comes to women and children, I think men are duty bound to put family duty and responsibilities above themselves and thus men should not consider themselves as equal to women and children. Men should put the needs of women and children ahead of their own.


    Think in terms of the good logic of the law of the sea and it being applied to land.


    It is said by many that the courts favor women in most divorce cases. Given that almost 50% of all household are maned by single women, are our courts thinking more as I do and does that make them dishonest in terms of equality under the law?


    Thoughts?

    Well men are duty bound to take care of their families but what does that have to do with civil rights? Just because a man tends to the needs of his family doesn't mean that they are less than he is under the law.
    As for the welfare state, that is a different matter. I do tend to agree with you that the pendulum has swung a bit too far the other way but this should not preclude civil rights.

    The laws in the US favor those of color.

    Therefore, darky should get the job before whitey.

    I did not indicate that men who tend to the needs of their family are less than they are under the law. I think you read me wrong on this.

    The law says they are equal, and I say that women and children should, if anything, be above men and not bellow them. The reverse I think of what you indicated I put.

    Because I agree with the law of the sea that does and think I am seeing our divorce courts do it as well when children are in play.

    I have even known childless men complain about how well women are treated by the courts as compared to men.
