    Double Standards

    Much of the inequality I feel is down to the way I am perceived and viewed by others, and the expectations by society to live and act to a certain standard, which differs from that of a man. Think about this. If a young man keeps a very untidy and messy apartment, he is not...

    (PS I KNOW THIS DOESNT HAPPEN EVERYWHERE this

    "We came equals into this world,

    The human race is intelligent enough to send a

    I wouldn't be involved with another female

    but I support the whole same sex marriage thing. I don't think there is anything wrong with them or it was a choice they were born this way.

    Offensive? Maybe, But We've Come A Long Way In 70 Years

    This article appeared in 1943 in a magazine called "Mass Transportation."  For those who may find it offensive, the good news is that we've come a long way.  If it seems funny, it's because of how far we've come in much of the world.  I'm a man, but I have women in my life and...

    85 of the world's richest men have more money

    than 50% of the world's poor. That is a staggering statistic. A handful of people have enough wealth to wipe poverty among half the population of the WORLD. How can we live with ourselves? Our greed, our apathy plunges billions of people into darkness, hunger and a life of...

    My Perspective On Equality

    Many people claim that they are all for equality.  Unfortunately, that generally means that all is fine, as long as they end up on top and get what they want.  I believe in true equality across the board, not selective equality. In a relationship, I expect...

    Well yea I believe everyone should be treated

    equal no matter what their ethnicity is. The only time I would think someone doesn't deserve to be treated equally is if they are acting like they are better than everyone else.

    I think it's cruel to judge someone for liking the same gender, being that I like the same gender myself, but honestly, you can't help who you love. Sure it says it's a sin in the bible but, it's almost 2014 and some people are still judging people for what they can't help...

    Do men really think of us,
