    Where's The Red Card?

    Where's the red card? Really? My question is: what's happening to the females of our species?

    if we're going to insist on raising our girls as boys and continue to portray them as ass-kickers on the big screen, why would we expect any different?

    Some commentary worth considering in a Huffington Post article. It's short.

    Raising our girls as boys? I don't see why either gender should be raised to be violent.

    Male on male competition is natural within the species; we do it to perform for the opposite sex in order to gain permission for reproductive (sex) rights.

    Violence, as the way humans and chimps express it, is an interesting behavior.

    I am unanimous in that.

    You've just described the female population, dear.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    What would you say is the ultimate goal of a female? IOW - what drives them and why?

    Please don't be suspicious that I'm baiting or setting you up. I'm genuinely interested in your thoughts and perspective.

    It would be nice to respectfully explore both our statements.

    And, of course, anyone's input is welcome.

    That was assault - at least in this country it would be. The sex of the perpetrator is irrelevant and if you really think it is only recently women have become capable of tghat kind of violence I have to ask what planet are you living on?

    Most animals seem to prefer posturing to actual violence, and only take to violence as a last resort.
    I doubt that young lady could actually put to words why she kneed the other girl.
