The foundation of #Equality is the premise that #gender does not determine capability for a given task.  Women may have to do it differently, but they are still capable of completing any task a man can.

A foundation point of #Chivalry is that women are less capable beings that require the protection of men.  

Do you disagree with my #perspective thus far???  If you do, why???

If you agree thus far,  do you see how Chivalry might undermine the image of a woman as a full equal to a man??? 

Today we have a society that has women as Police Officers, Marines, and Jet Fighter Pilots. These are the roles of protector and warrior.  Is it appropriate for women to be in these roles???

How is a male police officer/soldier to believe a female police officer/soldier can be counted on to watch his back??? 

A woman is either an equally capable human being or she is not!!!  Which is it to be???

My point is that women reading this need to fully understand the dynamic of Equality and take responsibility for how their decisions effect how all women are perceived.  Do you think this unfair???  Whose responsibility do you think it is to create an environment where women are respected as full equals??? 

We can change laws to help women, but the truth is that true respect as an Equal can only come from Women Stepping Up & Demonstrating their Ability to Communicate as Equals 24/7/365. 

When women complain about the lack of Chivalry, they are basically asking to return to the mindset of inequality. 

So women have a choice.  They can make decisions that continue to demonstrate an association between women w/ being "weak & afraid" or women can make decisions that grow the association between women w/ being "strong & brave."  Which do you think will better lead to the mindset of women as true equals??? 

Then again, perhaps women prefer this halfway treatment. Its only resulted in the opinions of women to not be taken as seriously as men's and as a consequence of that, getting paid less for non-union represented work.

I Love Women and it hurts me to see them not live up to the Equality I was raised to believe in. 

In other societies across the world women are still treated as property and have very little rights, if any.  Don't sleep, our society can still tumble backwards.  Even now there are those plotting to take away a woman's right to choose what happens with her own body.  What are you doing to help secure women's rights over their own lives???  Your daily decisions matter.

A story you've probably never heard about a gang everyone knows. And the little boy who angered America.

What if I told you that you could experience all that New York has to offer for only $22 a night. There’s only one small catch—you’ll be sleeping in a van.

Here's one way to get attention for your cause: project it onto the Empire State Building. That's what advocates for endangered animals did Saturday.

What do you think? Good idea? Click here for more images from the show: http://nbcbay.com/hMT9YKl

The Cincinnati cop who murdered #SamDubose is free on bail after only 27 hours, yet 15-year-old Kalief Browder was held without trial at Rikers Island for 3 years (2 in solitary) on suspicion of stealing a backpack. Kalief was repeatedly beaten by guards and fellow inmates and was so traumatized by what he endured he took his own life shortly after release. The whole damn system is guilty as hell. #BlackLivesMatter--Share if you agree!

Good people. Quality service. Friendly demeanor. Conveniently located next to the elevated subway train ( 2 line, Bronx Park East ) They provide quality service and reasonable (standard) rates. Just called them with a question. They happily advised me on what to do. It is an easy fix I could take care of myself or they could take care of it, if I preferred.
