If women thought and acted like men, would men like it and respect women?

Try to imagine the thoughts going through this woman"s mind, which to me is a good representation of what men are thinking as they go through their normal day to day interactions with women.

Please see the clips at the right.

I could not find any clips of women speaking as these men do, but if you can imagine a woman saying the same type of things about men, what would you think of those women?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Imagine if the following were women speaking of men instead of men speaking of women.

The second century St. Clement of Alexandria wrote: "Every woman should be filled with shame by the thought that she is a woman."

The Church father Tertullian explained why women deserve their status as despised and inferior human beings:

"And do you not know that you are an Eve? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age: the guilt must of necessity live too. You are the devil's gateway: you are the unsealer of that tree: you are the first deserter of the divine law: you are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God's image, man. On account of your desert that is, death even the Son of God had to die."

The sixth century Christian philosopher, Boethius, wrote in The Consolation of Philosophy, "Woman is a temple built upon a sewer."

In the tenth century Odo of Cluny declared, "To embrace a woman is to embrace a sack of manure..."

St. Thomas Aquinas suggested that God had made a mistake in creating woman: "nothing [deficient] or defective should have been produced in the first establishment of things; so woman ought not to have been produced then."

And my favorite.
"If a woman grows weary and, at last, dies from childbearing, it matters not. Let her die from bearing - she is there to do it."
- Martin Luther

My fellow men.
What would you tell any woman who talked and acted the way the men shown above talked and acted?

If you would not respect such women, what makes you think that men deserve women"s respect for the way we think?

Let me broaden your thinking before your reply.

Do men deserve the respect of women?

Man deserves the respect of man. Each person can (and I believe should) be taken on their individual merits. So I guess I dispute the premise of your question, that a woman's respect for a man should be predicated on the actions or words of other men. Or vice versa for that matter.

If women are not to give respect based on men's actions, then what are they to base their respect on?

Our smiles?
