    First post: makes complete sense. People rarely have the ability to think about impacts they won't personally feel. There is an oft-cited quote (I believe it was used by planned parenthood) that states "77% of men are against abortion, 100% will never be pregnant". Which, when you think about it is completely true. I'm not saying guys won't ever get it or shouldn't have a say in the argument. However, it's like when I talk about my disability to people who don't have Asperger's. You can imagine in, feel some empathy (please, no sympathy), and understanding. However, unless you're in that situation, you cannot fully know how it feels.

    Second post: yes, but consider the number of female fetuses that have been aborted due to a one-child policy in a society that still favors males. While it is good to see educational equality happen, it's kind of a Pyrrhic victory.

    10 Ways That Being More Positive Improves Your Career (and Your Life)
    By Kathy Caprino, M.A.

    As a trained marriage and family therapist and career coach, I’ve researched for over eight years what makes some people highly successful interpersonally and in business, and others doomed to fail.

    I’ve observed this: Being more positive in your behaviors and language makes room for far greater success, satisfaction and reward in your life (this goes for your marriage and family life too).

    In Marriage as In Life and Work

    After Strauss-Kahn, Fear of Rape Victim Silence
    An article worth reading.
    By CARA BUCKLEY
    Published: August 24, 2011

    Wonder how many folks know about Mr. Kahn's character? A trial would have disclosed that.

    The World's 100 Most Powerful Women: This Year It's All About Reach(y)

    Europe is in debt crisis, the Middle East is shaking and there’s market panic at home. It is against this backdrop that we present the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.

    The women on this list were chosen not just for being on top but for being smack in the middle of Richter-registering events–and more. Their power derives from money and might, yes, but also (thanks to old, new and social media) reach and influence.

    This year’s No. 1 in the ranking, German Chancellor Angela Merkel–recognized as the “undisputed” leader of the EU–is key to curing what ails the euro zone. As the Arab spring turns into the autocrats’ summer, No. 2-ranked U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton provides encouragement to dissidents, while Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg (No. 5) and Twitter’s Katie Jacobs Stanton (No. 56) empower the rebels storming the barricades with an uninterrupted newsfeed–or a way to report in 140 characters or less.

    Michele Bachmann (No. 22) is rocking the 2012 presidential race while Sarah Palin (No. 34) is still playing coy. We have lots of business leaders too: women from Silicon Valley and Wall Street and Main Street; entrepreneurs of import, like HTC’s Cher Wang (No. 20), media marquise Arianna Huffington (No.31) and Zhang Xin (No. 48), billionaire cofounder of real-estate empire SOHO China.

    OK, that made me laugh.

    "Angie", devoid of inspiration or vision, has brought non leadership to new heights. She is very much disputed and most severely in her own country and there, even more, by her own party. She is primarily concerned with staying in power by trashing all would be contenders the minute one of them only blinks. At that she's good.

    Beyond that she hasn't a clue on how to address the current financial and economic doldrums, is totally out of touch with the German public on virtually every other issue and regarded by the majority of other European leaders with anything ranging from pity to disgust. What is hated is her clout but she's done nothing to acquire it and merely borrows it from those instances of industry and commerce truly responsible for Germany's current success, despite of her. Who incidentally do what they darn well think fit, leaving her stammering and stuttering to occupy the TV cameras and a totally disillusioned audience.

    Her prime characteristic of style is hesitancy and reaction rather than pro-activeness, with developments always about 20 miles ahead of what she finally decides to do and in most cases doesn't.

    She'll be gone in 2013.

    All this has nothing to do with her being a woman, her incompetence is simply a gender neutral personality failing.
