What's Your Stand?

An English professor wrote the words: "WOMAN WITHOUT HER MAN IS NOTHING" on the blackboard, and directed the students to punctuate it correctly.

The men wrote: "Woman, WITHOUT HER MAN, is nothing."

The women wrote: "WOMAN!! WITHOUT HER, man is nothing!"



Everyone must make theirown decision on this one. I actually agree wi th the last one myself.

I think is wise to have a balanced perspective...<br />
Generally and speaking, in broad strokes:<br />
<br />
- man is dependent on women for personal gratification and fulfillment,<br />
(A gift which for him in necessarily (primarily) engaged physically.)<br />
<br />
And<br />
<br />
- women are dependent on men for personal gratification and fulfillment,<br />
(A gift which for her is necessarily (primarily) engaged emotionally.)<br />
<br />
Men can go to prostitutes and pretend they don't need to go any deeper emotionally...<br />
<br />
And Women can became nuns, choose to be gay (in a minority cases) or seek women only emotional connections ETC...<br />
<br />
But they are denying a part of themselves if they choose to run counter to nature simply because they ingested foolish ideas from TV and harbor defective conceptions of gender roles.

Okay' Everyone!....I wll give you the words...You supply <br />
<br />
the punctuation!<br />
<br />
'what is this thing called love"

The second of course

I read it the first way, the way the guys read it. I'm a guy. The story checks out.

Either could be correct depending on how you wanted to express the thought.

Bullocks, neither is correct.

Woman without her man; is nothing!

Hi June<br />
The idea is funny. <br />
i would have wrote it like this.<br />
"With each other men, and women become."

Josie, I go number 2 as well!

No, I think as women, without our men, we are nothing. Yes, we are capable of doing things without them, but we need them. Theyre strong, providing, help create babies.. and for some dang reason they always seem to make more money than us women. it is rare that women make more than men, but we still live in a sexest world. I BELIEVE WITHOUT MY MAN I AM NOTHING. So im not speaking for anyone else but myself.

The last one, of course!<br />
<br />
And I teach all of my students that! LOL
