I posted a comment about almost two hours ago to his blog stating that I took issue with what he had blogged. Apparently he didn't approve my comment (he's been on and off since then), and yeah, that's his right. What I had to say was that I didn't agree with that because even though a man and woman are different in many ways, a man grows emotionally as well as a woman do through life. I remember my first love and having that first love of my life changed me. I remember just recently that I found out that I may have a daughter, and my thinking has changed for the better with that, and has brought out even more of the better in me. Over the years I have gone through highs and lows, and I would say that much of that has changed me for the better to some degree. I have learned what it's like to love and to have lost. I give women the respect that yes, they do go through a lot in life with growing emotionally and experiencing things that men don't, but he quoted a woman on his blog that hit a nerve with me saying men know nothing, and to me that's just not true! I think if someone is going to post a blog at least they should be open minded enough to open a debate with different view points for comments on it especially when it short changes one gender.

You're right of course regarding the fact that men grow emotionally as well but I did not interpret that piece to be more of a put down on men as providing a unique perspective from a woman. I thought it was quite movingly written. The rest of what this woman said is as follows:

He does not know the difference before love and after love, before motherhood and after motherhood. He can know nothing. Only a woman can know that and speak of that. That is why we won't be told what to do by our husbands. A woman can only do one thing. She can respect herself. She can keep herself decent. She must always be as her nature is. She must always be maiden and always be mother. Before every love she is a maiden, after every love she is a mother. In this you can see whether she is a good woman or not.

Anyway, the woman was probably speaking from a time and a culture when women really were trodden underfoot and disregarded by men. So her remarks and feelings about men in general may have been quite valid.

I have to agree here, everyone grows and changes and learns. If not, they end up in institutions.

It's looks like the other guy did post your reply (and Belle's). I suppose it's matter of waiting a bit; I've had to wait quite a while sometimes for my replies too.

I noticed that that gentleman just now posted my comment on his blog. I totally understand that when someone is not on to approve the comment approvals posted to their blogs that one must wait, but like I stated in my blog on here, he has been back on a number of times since I first posted that comment about two hours ago. So I'm sure he was well aware of my comment. Nevertheless, I'm glad he finally posted my comment even though I feel he did it because I posted a rebuttal to his. I hope there are no hard feelings with my approach to this and I say this with respect.

I'm sure it's just a simple misunderstanding. There are times I've come on here and just been bombarded with a million other things to do. Although I'm pretty sure I can't be as busy as Mr. Super Schlong zipping from place to place molesticating da ladies!
