Just because God gave me a vagina does not mean that I am second to a man. I have the same rights as a man does and the same desire to have a fufiling life. Any man who is threatened by that should get involved with someone else.

Men and women are equal. No man should ever act like he's above a woman bc of her sex.

agree!! i do certain things fo my husband because i choose to and i stay home with our kids. he wrks 12hr days and i do like to have dinner made and the house clean. bht he does his part with our kids and tidying up on his days off. but we are equa and should be treated as so.

I agree with you here. However, I'm kind of the opposite as well. I wouoldn't call it "serving" or "slaving" over my husband but as a stay at home mom I pretty much do everything while DH works. The only thing that my husband does that would consider us "equals" is he takes out the trash and dirty diapers. lol. But I like it this way. He is in no way messy or lazy, but it all keeps me busy so I prefer it this way. I've had some friends who ask me why I'm always putting him first before myself and my reply is simple: Because someone has to while he puts me and our girls ahead of himself.
