    On a more positive note, I think it is essential that both genders realize that they BOTH have strengths and weaknesses. Same as different personality types have strengths and weaknesses. We need different genders and different personalities in order to make the society whole since no one is perfect in and of himself/herself.

    When we learn to embrace and make the most of these differences rather than saying women are better than men or men are better than women, we will have a more cooperative and productive (not to mention effective and efficient as well as peaceful) society. When we learn to accept that we need SJs, SPs, NTs, and NFs to make a well-rounded society rather than bitching about who is better and who is crap, we will also have a more effective society.

    It's not about who is BETTER. It's about complementing each other to the best of our ability.

    Excellent point.

    From the marvelous, Roger Dodger:

    What's happening right now is important only in the context...
    of our continuing evolution as a species.
    Roger, all I'm saying is that I wish my sister would learn to read a subway map.
    By saying that, you disregard the primary importance...
    of utility in human relationships.
    Our ability-- Men's ability to read maps...
    to navigate, makes us useful.
    You should discourage your sister from even looking at a map.
    Are you saying that we women have an inferior sense of direction?
    Which way is north,Joyce, without looking around?
    What?
    You heard me. Point north. Quick. North.
    Quick. North.
    North. North.
    - You're right. - Is he right?
    - He's right. - Very impressive.
    As she has throughout history...
    the female responds to the male who displays the most utility.
    By honing those skills which make me useful...
    I stave off my inevitable obsolescence.
    You stay home honing your ability to program a VCR?
    My VCR's been flashing 1 2:00 for three years.
    What else, Roger?
    Oh, driving a standard shift. Lifting heavy things.
    - Air guitar. - Yes, yes.
    Go ahead and chuckle, okay?
    But until women evolve the ability to move objects telepathically--
    and they will--
    physical strength remains a primary utility.
    Here's to brute strength then.
    Roger, you're forgetting a very important male utility.
    What's that? Barbecuing?
    Sex.
    Yeah. I want a guy to do more than just program my VCR.
    Oh, I'll program your VCR, baby, like you never had it.
    It's a top-loader. You think you can handle that?
    Interestingly, a group of scientists in England...
    just announced their intention to fertilize an egg...
    without the use of sperm cells.
    I don't understand that.
    Every cell in the human body contains a copy of the genome pattern.
    The only reason sperm cells have all the fun is that up until now...
    they were the only ones with access.
    Within Christopher's lifetime, artifiicial insemination...
    will render sperm as useless as an assembly line worker in Detroit.
    Luckily, my accountant set up a golden parachute for my sperm years ago.
    In case they were downsized.
    Just so you know, Roger, you know that we women...
    make love because we like it.
    - Not just to procreate. - Yes.
    - But are men absolutely necessary? - I don't know that.
    Think of the structure of the female genitalia.
    Wait. Wait. Okay, got it.
    What is the most sensitive part of the vagina?
    -I can't believe we've gotten into this. -I think you know this, Donovan.
    It's the clitoris, fiirst discovered by Renaldus Columbus in 1 559.
    He thought it was India.
    Oh, no! No!
    The crown of the clitoris contains 8,000 nerve fiibers.
    It's a far great concentration than in any part of the male body...
    even our fiingertips.
    It is the most effiicient, pleasure-delivery system...
    ever devised by nature.
    Now, ask yourself...
    why didn't the clitoris end up inside the vagina...
    so that intercourse would be naturally...
    compellingly, constantly pleasurable for a woman?
    - I know the answer. - Yes, Ms. Maynard.
    Because in primitive time, women died of childbirth.
    So for intercourse to be too pleasurable...
    wouldn't make sense from a Darwinian standpoint.
    - I'm impressed. - Absolutely right.
    - What does that tell us? - Evolution is looking out for us girls?
    - Exactly. - That for women...
    intercourse and sexual fulfiillment were never intended to intersect.
    New technology just makes it offiicial.
    Future generations of women will evolve clitorises-- ''clitori, clitorati''--
    ''Clitorissimo.''
    that are larger, longer, even more sensitive.
    And a woman's ability, as well as her desire to self-stimulate...
    will increase exponentially...
    as intercourse is robbed of its procreative utility.
    - I'm confused and frightened. - You should be.
    The species is not static. We're in a constant state of flux.
    Two genders has been the default setting for one reason only:
    So far it's been the only way to propagate the race.
    Is there any species that just has one gender...
    that doesn't have male/female?
    Starfiish, for one.
    Next time I see a starfiish, I'm gonna tell him to go fuck himself.
    Come on. You love it.
    No, we don't.
    So where are we headed?
    Equality? Equality, what is that?
    Is that a principle of nature?
    We all sit around reading subway maps together.
    No. Of course not. Natural selection.
    Now that is a principle of nature.
    Selection. Something has to lose. Something has to be defeated...
    in order for something else to be selected.
    So, what does this mean?
    We have to take orders from Joyce for the rest of lives.
    That's right. I like that.
    It means that 1 0 or 1 5 generations from now...
    men will be reduced to servitude.
    Technology and evolution will have combined...
    to exclude sperm from procreation...
    and our fiinal destiny will be to lift couches...
    and wait for that day when telepathy overcomes gravity...
    and our gender's last remaining utility is lost forever.
    Forever.

    -Yes, my dear.

    At least it is safe to say that a world with only women would be a safer one than a world with only men. Whether that makes it better is up for debate.

    Absolutely, sex is over.

    Just look around you - all of us, each one of us, is disembodied - we are pure spirits without bodies.

    Sure, we still feel desire but it has no effect - look, we are having intercourse without touching.

    But still our emotions are touched, our feelings are touched - indeed, really - we are - we are touching.

    My mind is contacting your mind - and your mind is contacting my mind - and neither of us mind.

    This is what it is like in heaven. This is how the Angels, Archangels and Seraphim have intercourse all day and everyday - it's heavenly.

    Yes, this is the post-sex world - we post to each other - we post to one another - sans sex.

    But what are we to make of all this - how can we start to understand our new world?

    Let's start by giving it a name - let's call it the, "Noosphere".

    "Noosphere", is an Ancient Greek word that takes us, in one breath, from the beginning of our civilization right to the present moment.

    And, by-the-by, "Noosphere", tells us the most important, even the most obvious thing, about our home - it is round - even more than round - it's spherical.

    Our world is the most perfect shape there is - look, all the other worlds are perfectly round as well - even the Sun.

    Who would have believed - who would have believed - I would end up talking to Angels?

    So where does rape come into all of this, since from what I've heard, people are still getting raped everyday?

    Well, Sammy, you ask the toughest questions.

    And I could come back with a slick and easy answer.

    But it is such a life tragedy to be raped, that I don't have the heart.

    And it is really not for me to answer the question, perhaps we should leave that to the victims of rape.

    My mind can only take so much horror at any one time. And I have recently been writing about sado-masochism, torture and rape. So perhaps I should follow my own mini-philosophy of Alternance and turn my mind to better things.
