@dyslexia,
That's an odd comparison dys. Colds are not funny.

@spendius,
I suppose it depends on your sense of humour.

Do you think atheists could have got us to here Dave?
I would take a lot of persuading.

(The non-celebate ones?)
In this context "here" means what?
Technologically ?


Note, incidentally, that I am not an atheist.

I infer that u have probably chosen to ignor
my question as to elucidation of your response, Spendius.

@dlowan,
You don't observe a lot of rigidity affecting the majority of men? Show fortitude in the face of adversity...keep a stiff upper lip!

I didn't ignore it Dave. The answer seems so self evident. Yes--technologically.

Tempermentally. Artistically. "Here" like what you see.

Do you think atheists could have done it?

Please note that I am not challenging u; I wish to elicit your reasoning
about how their spiritual opinions woud interfere,
preventing them from achieving technological success.

@ossobuco,
Hello again.
Sorry, I do have a habit of starting a thread and then buzzing off.
I need to re-read the thread, but here's a comment for now.
(Foofie I'm going to ignore you).

Osso, I totally see what you mean about the need to get away from laundry talk etc. When my mum and my gran are together it's like the annual village gossip convention and I find it unbearable. (Whats more, it's not even interesting gossip, it's just like who had a leg operation and who missed church on sunday).
I CAN however talk to my dad about more interesting matters, but I see this as purely coincidental; it could easily be beer and cars. My father only ever solicits his opinion about religion or politics when I'm there and ask him something anyway.

One observation I have made, is the difference in gender distinctions between my friends I made from school and the friends I made at university.
My 'school circle' is much more divided into 'sexual stereotypes', much more. Not just in taste and activity, but in attitude and personality.
It would be true to say in relation to my specific groups of friends that the less intelligent and less creative fit into the stereotypes a lot more easily than the more intelligent and creative ones.
I go to an 'art's university', as in the only subjects studied are culture subjects and social sciences- the gender distinctions are pretty loose. The standard that arty men are more in touch with their feminine side is pretty self-evident here. And actually, 60% at my university are women, and the remaining half of men are gay.
Without sounding like an elitist prick, can I ask if anyone else has any experience of attitudes towards gender with respect to intelligence or creativity?

@The Pentacle Queen,
Yes. I have. I found that women and homosexual men talk a great deal about their intelligence and creativity and heterosexual men get on with applying their intelligence and creativity to the material of the earth's crust.

Please clarify your last sentence. I am not sure of where you are going with it. Are you saying , i.e., my attitude toward my intelligence and creativity? or someone elses. Male or female?

@Sglass,
I wrote a whole tome in answer (you all know this is a trait of mine) and then looked at it in ref to PQ's question and said, nah and dumped it. Would like to hear more from you on this too, PQ.

In the meantime, Spendius speaks again in conjecture.

@ossobuco,
All I could gleam from Spendi's comment is that gay guys are more creative and intellectual and that straight guys talk ****.

My last sentence- I meant experiences/opinions in general.

I firmly believe that there is no inferior gender, that intelligence and creativity equal out, but we tend to specialize in different things. Women tend to get their panties in a bunch if men claim that they are better at Anything, which is pretty juvenile because women are objecting to something that is clearly true. Women should be agreeing, but pointing out that women are better than men at other stuff. And vis-versa.

@Sglass,
There may be a breakdown re people who make careers of this or that (and may be reactive to decades or centuries of dump, while being gay and so on), but over a bunch of decades I see people from all realms being creative. Which is true in my own life. I've seen real creativity so much that the whole art world thing is like a fizz from a tv show.

Hawk is this guy on a horse to nowhere. I see some of his points, but his pov is occlusive.

I wouldn't mind seeing him work up a sketch on the roles of folks in art.

Could anyone tell me their 'relationship' with their gender, and the reasons why, whether these be 'biological' e.g. motherhood, or societal (if we can even separate these issues).

I am happily male as a strictly pragmatical matter. No menstrual cramps for me!

@ossobuco,
People cut each other slack every day of the week, Hawkeye. Less so with those of Strict Rules of Sexuality.
