There’s no point denying that men and women are different. There is also no point in denying that this difference extends beyond what’s in our pants, as what’s in our respective minds differs just as much. Of course, these differences by no means suggest any superiority or inferiority between the sexes, they are simply fact based on hormones and society and other forces. Different thought and behavior patterns can be seen between men and women, and more differences are discovered regularly.
One of the latest discoveries of this sort focuses on men and women’s differing actions to fulfill their career goals. A survey of students studying to receive their MBAs in Texas found that while men and women tend to want the same thing in the long run, men generally focus more on the immediate future while women generally focus on growth and stability. Basically, men choose starting jobs based on high starting salaries and immediate gain, while women tend to aim for more secure jobs which will hopefully result in higher wages down the road. This definitely supports the idea that men are more impulsive with …
What’s got me a little worked up is that Kate Middleton, who graduated from college with honors and had fairly extensive career options in both the fashion industry and the field of photography, has basically been relegated to a breeder.
Yup, talk has turned from her wedding dress to her ovaries before she’s even been a wife for a week.
Looking at these two beautiful people, I have to recommend that they have a baby as soon as possible. Why? Well, beyond passing on those top-tier genes, the reality is that Kate is 29 and Will is 28, and this is the ideal time to have a baby – especially if they are planning on having more than one child.
While starting a family right away may seem like a daunting prospect for a newlywed couple – even a pair who has been dating for years, as Kate and Will have – here’s the medical lowdown on the matter:
Long distance parenting involves moving away from one’s children. So mom and dad get a divorce, and dad moves to Sacramento for a new job opportunity, leaving the kids behind in Wichita. Doesn’t sound out of the blue. Except, what if it isn’t dad- what if it is mom?
Rahna Reiko Rizzuto moved away from her 3 and 5 year old sons ten years ago to pursue a fellowship in Japan. When she returned to New York six months later, she ended her marriage and gave up custody of her children. She now teaches at a college in Vermont.
Talyaa Liera, a woman who had spent 10 years as a stay at home mom, moved 3,000 miles away from her children to become a writer.
I am willing to wager that Rizzuto and Liera would be deemed to be poor mothers by quite a few people. I’ll bet some are even disgusted in their behaviour. And I find that problematic. Here’s why.
First of all, I think most people would agree there is a heavy …
“Bieber Fever” is a common affliction for tweens, teens, and even some adult women, deny it though they might. The baby face … the flippy hair … the voice … Justin Bieber is just all that and a bag of chips for a (shockingly) large number of people.
For those of us immune to his evident appeal as a sex idol (and I count myself in this number … I mean, come on, he’s sixteen), though, the real story is the fact that he was raised by a single mother, achieving stratospheric success from rather …
