All reasonably good points, I must say.. and I do agree with them to a certain extent. I actually use some of these points when I voice out my views on (and against) the WOMEN's organization(s) and their (most of the time - absurd) demands and constant cribbing.

BUT SETTING UP A MEN'S WELFARE MINISTRY or whatever is definitely NOT what I was getting at. I was hoping that someone would put an end to the Women's Cribbing (Welfare - as they like to call it) Organizations - Not set up another one for MEN !!!
