You state the following:
"Couldn't a person reasonably extrapolate from that paragraph that you mean it is males who must change in order for relations to improve? If not, then what do you mean by "Eventually, men will adapt..." or men of the future finding the issues to be less "...unpeaceful, and emasculating."? "
Well, i guess you could interpret the statement as you did, but remember that that particular post was the continuation of earlier posts, which specifically addressed how the changes in women's history shaped/influenced men(7/10/03), suggesting that some men liked the changes. Then you partially agreed, but asserted that these changes were actually causing breakups(7/11/03). So if you consider our larger conversation, which are available in earlier posts,(btw, i would assume that u could also consider my posts in other threads) you would not believe that I suggested that only men needed to change. In other words, since you, I and others consistently post(often directly to eachother), i believe(d?) that we don't/didn't have to be so explanatory, since the other posts provide a template in which you can draw from.
Thank U asking for explanation and giving me the chance to respond. Understanding is a two way street, and miscommunication is as much the fault of the communicator as it is the receiver. Have a great day!
