Let’s start out with my last blog about men. I received some positive feedback from quite a few xanga friends. I did not intend for the writings to be viewed as man-hater, man bashing, feminist BS. I merely intended it to be a topic that I was feeling strongly about at the moment. Women are not equal with men yet. Some women overstep their bounds when it comes to equality. Men, while thinking they are the strong creatures of our society have one fatal flaw and that is God’s design which men made into their second brain that has evolved into their most useful brain. These were all my opinions…I stand by them. My daughters took exception to this blog. They thought I came across as a man bashing, extremist and didn’t think I presented both side of the issue. I gave their comments a lot of thought and I did understand where they were coming from…we also discussed the difference in generations and how they view and how I view life in general…they are concerned because a few of their friends actually read my blog and hate the way this reflects on them … their mother’s rantings…I maintain this is my blog, these are my thoughts and if you don’t agree with me or if it is too painful to read…stop reading it…both girls said this might be their option. They also are concerned that I also publish this blog on Facebook….I, once again, understand their position…but I don’t think they understand mine. This is my blog..these are my thoughts…if they feel this blog reflects on them in a negative manner, then they need to deal with it. It is not like I’m revealing embarrassing details …. or any details, for that matter, about them or their personal lives…. I am pretty sure their friends don’t take anything I say to heart anymore than they do things I say to them in person. I am the mother not their peer. This is not about them..this is my blog. I like to blog. I’m 53 years old and if I want to write down my thoughts in blog form then that is what I’m going to do. Readers don’t have to agree and the ones that don’t are welcome to tell me why. I welcome different ideas. Just like the disagreement with my girls…I listened to them, I evaluated their opinion and made a decision to continue. So be it.
Until next time….
