Is the battle of the sexes over?

The battle of the sexes is over. That's what a new report from California First Lady Maria Shriver declares.

The study says half the American workforce is now comprised of women, and almost 40 percent of women identified themselves as the "breadwinner" in their families.

It'll be the hot topic at the Women's Conference, hosted by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and First Lady Maria Shriver, which takes place today.

    In response to this morning's stroy about Sarah Palin: find her disgusting and I think the polls are rediculous! That woman is a disgrace to all intelligent women.She's stupid and if that's what people thin is a good role model for women then it is a sad state of affairs! Stop giving her so much press!

    So how can a woman rape or sexually assualt a male?

    What is female chivarly?

    Mental rape of conception.

    And no female chivarly exists.

    The battle is only over: because a feminist extremist doctrine has overruled: and men give up in the pages of playboy.

    Men offer a different type for playgirl: in truth charisma and celebrity: power is the attractive truth: strong mind and genius. A picture of naked eyes: eyes incepted to open that conceptive abilities for reproductive act of a higher lifeform. All life inculcates: we as higher life forms just have the ability to choose when and to who.

    I lived in mexico for 10 years and never had the option of speaking english on my job, having an english speaking operator or having everything i ever wanted to purchase translated into english. i think "when in rome, do as the romans". i am fluent in spanish thanks to the fact that NOTHING was translated into any other language. speak your language with your family, watch your language at home, listen to your language on the radio, but it's just not fair to all the people who do speak english or study hard to learn english, not to mention the cost for all this translation. why should i pay more for a product that must be repackaged to add translated information and the cost for that translator......
