    In your reply to me you were somewhat self-righteously intolerant concerning personal behaviour. [my emphasis].

      Given that in much of the industrial world the average is <2 kids, it's fairly likely his statement holds true. Sure, one or two of them might have had 15 kids, but you'll notice he did use the qualifier "typically", and based on industrial average, he would probably be right.

      (Also, for the record, the "box" tag is unnecessary if you are quoting someone, "box" and "quote" function near identically, with the exception that "box" won't automatically italicize words. But putting a quote in additional box negates that one advantage.

        Maybe these guys should get superhero outfits for saving the world.

        Bright red tights with a picture of a sperm with the No symbol over it emblazoned across their chests.







        And take on alternative identities like The Dry Shooter and Blankman.

        I'm always still in trouble again

            This is a discussion forum, not a private conversation.

            Can you NOT try to run the board?

            The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

              It's a discussion forum. I am discussing. If you don't like it, move on to a new forum.

              You could have chosen to ignore my comment if you didn't like it. Instead you chose to ignore the content and complain.

                We actually have an area for one-on-one (or otherwise limited participants) discussions.

                  Oh you mean like calling people greedy for caring about their money being taken from them by the government? That sort of self-righteous intolerance concerning personal behavior?

                        This is a good comment and would appeal to all cat lovers.

                          I just consulted my liver and it says Hypatia should not be commenting on men's issues as she is not a man.

                            She really should recuse herself from this thread.

                              Does she EVER? Eventually she just kinda ups and disappears.

                                Anyone can offer an opinion.

                                I not telling men that they should have vasectomies nor do I support campaigns for the introduction of legislation that would enforce them to do so!
