Thanks, bro. Just watched the trailer. No way am I sleeping for the next 30 years.

BTW, I love your badge/button. Added it to Steely Dad!

Dude, I'm sorry it's been so long since my last visit. I'm not sure why. You're such a great writer and your stuff always makes me laugh!

I can completely relate to your fear. When I was younger, the movie poster to The Eyes of Laura Mars freaked me out to no end. I couldn't get the image of the white-eyed chick from my tiny brain. Once when I was five, some neighborhood kids thought it would be funny to tell me a ghost story. I didn't sleep again until I had kids. That was 30 years later. The last horror flick I saw was Blair Witch. After seeing it, I went to a buddy's house, ended up drinking so I crashed at his pad. I COULDN'T fall asleep. I kept imagining what that witch looked like, with the horse hair and all. Finally I must have fallen asleep only to be awoken by the LOUDEST house alarm ever invented. It literally caused my heart to exit my body then come back into my thoracic cavity. It's all good though because Steely Wife HATES horror flicks. I can just pretend to like 'em so I can act tough. OK, I'm clicking on the clip...yikes!

J, thanks for stopping by Steely Dad and leaving such a great comment. You're right, we only ever hear from the "extremes" of both sides because those are the comments that make headlines. Debate is the process by which great ideas are created. Without debate you are left with untested ideas. Debate is the philosophical equivalent of sandpaper: it makes a rough idea smooth. For whatever reason, people have confused debate with argument.

Otter, please don’t spare me! I’d love to hear your point of view (even if you disagree with me).

Thanks, May. I’m sure it’s probably been said before but that one just came to me.

Hey, thanks for the well-written comment there, MIHH! Yea, I think that's the point. Equality comes at a price and unfortunately we can't decide what parts of equality we want and reject those we don't. It comes as a full package (did I just say "package"?). Good point about the LPGA. I know Annika and Michelle Wei have participated in PGA tournaments. I recall reading about a male golfer who was trying to do the same on the LPGA. It all starts to get a little bit crazy.

Sean, you're hilarious, my man! You know you've heard similar conversations. We ALL have!

Thanks, Susie! You bring up an excellent point. I love when some women say that the only thing men think about is sex, as if that's somehow a bad thing. Or they will say that men only want one thing, sex. How about women? It seems to me they only want one thing, a really big diamond ring. I can tell you this much. I have personally witnessed when a girl gets engaged all her friends gathering around to ohhh and ahhh about her piece of ice. It's THE moment for her to be the envy of every other woman. I've NEVER in all my years seen a man, after he's just been betrothed, pull out his penis to show how awesome the sex was with his soon-to-be bride. If a woman moves in with a man and there isn't a ring attached to her finger, her friends will think she's a moron, that the guy is not buying the cow because he's getting the milk for free. Applying pressure to him to purchase a $20K piece of jewelry is completely acceptable. It's even acceptable for her to go CHOOSE the ring, which is supposed to be a GIFT! However, if a guy moves in with a woman and they're not yet having sex, she is somehow being smart. Applying pressure to her would be considered unacceptable. I don't get it!

Nic! Welcome to the Steely Dad Nation. I want to thank you for launching the initial salvo on this very interesting topic. I have to hand it to you, you've definitely created a buzz. I've tried to do the same and never got this kind of response. It would be great if we can continue doing these types of forums on other "hot" topics. I've also added you to my blog roll. Any woman who is willing to put her neck on the line like you did deserves some props! Way to go!
