I appreciate your comments and thoughts. I'm not sure that my post deserved some of your comments, which appear to be directed at me vs. what we are discussing. I'm really sorry that you take my comments as judgements but I'm sure that is how they appear at times. Which might be the reason why this thread started and the topic was chosen. I can tell you that I come here because I learn, and as I said earlier I really don't need to spend time here to work. I get plenty of that other places - I look at this as a relief. The good point of this site is that we all can use it how we need it. If people need only support when they post then I'm sure they will get it. Personally I don't get involved in that until I am confident that I know the story. As mentioned here you can pull out of it what you want and where you want. But I don't and won't agree to the bashing.

I guess it's hard for me to understand your point on the sexism thing - Maybe I'm just not that smart. I kind of find your points funny in that I was writing as a person who is turning older, graying and am overweight. I don't feel that a skinny person is anymore deserving. BUT I also live this reality and I can tell you stories all day long where society does tend to favor that look. That is not me and I'm saying that. My point and the purpose of it was a EXAMPLE that strangely enough came from a thread on this site about beauty!!!!

I really am not here to get abusive to you or anyone here. I don't need to judge but you seem to take my posts as that. I tend to use examples or theory to try to show my thinking. Sometimes my examples can be taken as something I've done or said. As far as your statements on divorce - those are great. If you feel that way then that is ok too. I tend to feel VERY differently than you. I NEVER said we shouldn't grant someone a divorce if that is the best thing for both parties. I won't stand for someone putting words in my mouth. I DO believe that the high rate of divorce in this country is changing our social ways. Those are my opinions and I present them here only as a perspective - not as judging - as I am fully aware how easy it is for anyone to turn off the computer, move to another site or just plain choose to not agree with me. Not for a minute would I think anyone would get up from their computer chair and do exactly what I said here. So no I don't believe this site has ever been MY counseling site in an attempt to keep societal structures intact. You are taking my comments out of context.

Anyway, I don't have the time nor the desire to go toe to toe with you on my points any longer. I'm here, just like others, to enjoy the site and to be able to post my thoughts - no I don't post all my problems or issues here - I just choose not to - but I do choose to come here to learn and experience thoughts of others. I also come here to try and help if I can, by doing what I think I do best - to ask and challenge. If that isn't for you I totally understand and it's not my intention to sway you one way or another. Honestly I don't need to.

But I am able to come here and show my thoughts on why I agreed with the original post. I do think that at times this site can get one sided.

Thanks for your time and thougths. Time to move on. Peace to you.
