Good post overall. This "tension" between the sexes will only increase, and I honestly think the brunt of it will fall on women. I posted a bit of a rambler earlier that I thought about developing into a new thread, but I'll just leave it in yours. Long story short, girls don't really want what ...

I don't see how this is an argument. You can probably just google "stupid/obnoxious shite said/written by Ann Coulter" and you'll fairly quickly come to the conclusion that she's just a clever windbag who likes stirring the pot. She's as sanctimonious as Ingraham, too, btw. She just can't quite pull ...
