Subject: RE: Let's update 'Sensitive New Age Guys'
French roast? What a waste of perfectly good coffee. Now I'm really sad!

No, No. No parenting please. Totally off the chart for missing my drift there Sue... You ladies effect our actions and our goals... by what you will tollerate, and what you expect of us. If you stand your ground and communicate reasonably... the more 'open minded' of us (and there are more every day) will respond. You will get your 'better man'... and your better man will begin to know what it is to be 'less confused'... thanks to you.

BTW... I'm more than comfortable 'being a man'... so comfy, in fact, that I can fearlessly push the warp of what it actually means to BE one... without dwelling on images and posturing to prove anything.

...and while I'm at it... will you ladies PLEASE realisticly raise your standards of men... so we have something to work together on? Otherwise, we've just got to be unfeeling and wrong a lot... in that rather low loop of defensiveness... that some call 'manhood'.
