Well, it is that time of the year when we decide to devote an entire day focused upon the world of women and their struggle for being regarded on an equal basis with men. I believe we males should be proud that we are willing one day of the year to recognize that women in the workplace do encounter a few issues. A young woman who works in England described her encounters with those of the male sex. “The male friends I have at work are the same as me. They occasionally think being funny is more important than being nice. They’re neurotic, forceful when they think they’e right and not afraid to say ‘this is wrong, fix it’ and sometimes get things wrong. But, at the end of the day I’m still the bitch.” In other words, they will interact with women, joke with them, tease them, but it must always be clear that she is a woman and they are men. On International Women’s Day this professional woman had to make these comments but also made clear that she could not use her name. After all, her buddies at work want the world to know that some of their best friends are women.
Yes, we have come a long way, but, in reality we are closer to the starting line than to the end of this race for equality. The quest for equality is over when a person is a colleague, not a female colleague. One must alter minds to recognize that all at work are simply fellow workers and their sex is completely unimportant–AT WORK! Sex is for after work.

I was raised in the good old days when female Jews sat behind curtains and women who went to church knew it was their duty to get on their knees and pray to God. This was before all these new ideas about female equality and the belief that God is some sort of female thing up in the sky. Whatever happened to the time when we men spoke and women listened to our wonderful words of wisdom? Imagine Father Flaherty being Mrs. Flaherty! Ah, for the days of old when a man was a man and a woman was a woman. Well, those days are no longer true in the Church of England. About twenty years ago they allowed women to become a priest so it was simply a matter of time before they wanted a promotion.
The Church of England announced that from now on women can become Bishops. The Archbishop of Canterbury, John Welby, who runs the joint made clear to one and all that females will have a voice in running the entire operation. First, they were pawns, then they became bishops, what next??
