if anything i see a machismo development of women across the races. see the number of 'boys' success in high schools, law schools, medical schools, etc. see the behavior of young girls and the way they use and abuse young men. if you don't know this, you are too old.

as the previous commentator said, men are put down and i'm wondering what kind of boy-friends/husbands the young daughters are going find?
