    We've established that it's an English Assignment. He has said that he's in danger of failing. So correcting his grammar, spelling, and style seems like the perfect response.

    If that's so, then maybe we can be a bit more gentle? I'm the only member of my family born here in Canada and I know how difficult and embarrassing it is for some immigrants when their English isn't up to scratch or they're publicly corrected-- even if those corrections are well meant.

    Anyway, I'm not trying to muss anyone's hair-- just putting in my two cents.

    I'd agree if his location wasn't Marietta Georgia. So assuming he's native. If your native speaking English and you have grammar mistakes galore it's troll worthy.

    Hell..... when you come to an art forum for a homework assignment you gotta expect this stuff left and right.

    Tsk tsk, lets not give bad influence to the OP

    Personally I'm wondering if the OP really was supposed to ask these questions from a bunch of strangers, as opposed to, you know, answer these question by himself?

    Do you like the idea of a being a traditional woman(housewife) or are you complacent with being in the workforce and having equal rights as men.
    I prefer the idea of working.

    Do you think your truly equal?
    Well, yes, and no.
    I'm probably going to regret this, but... I actually feel like women are rising "above" men. Pulling the equality down.
    If a man comments a woman's butt, its sexual harassment. If a woman comments a man's but, she's just having a casual conversation about guys.
    If a man doesn't put his girlfriend first, he's an asshole. If a woman does put her boyfriend first, she's a slave and he's a sexist.
    And the toilet seat thing is still going on .

    How does work influence your role as a woman and as a wife?
    Work gives me money, so I can buy shoes. (I'm kidding).. but that's the purpose of working. It gives money. I could pay bills and eat fancy every day with a job. as a wife?
    Modern Women vs Traditional Women: Relationships and Workplace
    I guess I'd bring more money to the table for more comfortable living. (Believe it or not, more money does make you more comfortable, there is no question about it.)

    If men "traditionally" were suppose to pay bills and act as a supporter how does that influence your relationship now?
    Living small with a small apartment, no car/motorized bike, and no kids that could work, although it would be annoying in the long run.
    Living "normally" (as they say) with a small house, car and kids would in today's society (at least here in Norway) mean he would get two jobs and I would not see much of him. This would have a really bad effect on the relationship.

    I was just getting others inputs in. I'm only 18 so I didn't know how to answer the questions because of my youth. I am a native although my english could be better ( the people around me don't use it well either) so I'm trying to break that habit. I'm failing because I missed a lot of time at school ( grandma in the hospital she has breast cancer and my mom lost her job so we've been moving from place to place so its hard to keep track of a lot of things, but I know its just an excuse so please forgive my ignorance.

    Anyways, I just wanted to ask others so I could get a better way to answer the question.

    Thanks everyone!

    Boy, does that sound like twaddle to me. It certainly runs counter to my personal experience, anyway. By and large, the women I've known have been far more inclined than the men I've known to put in more hours, take on more jobs, sacrifice more to get an education to get better jobs, and focus more on saving up/providing for their kids/providing for retirement/etc...

    I understand what you're saying, so I just want to say my opinion.
    As an ESL person, I find it very helpful when people do those sort of corrections. It's those little things that help out a lot.
    If it wasn't for people correcting me I would still be pronouncing "you" as "joo"

    Do you think its a contradiction to have men treat women in a traditional manner, while women don't have to be traditional anymore?
    What does "behave in a traditional manner" even mean? There's a difference between historical gender roles and just being polite and courteous.
    And being polite and courteous goes both ways. I have no problems if a man holds a door open for me, but if I get to the door first, I will automatically hold the door open for him. It's just polite.


    For Women: Do you like the idea of a being a traditional woman(housewife) or are you complacent with being in the workforce and having equal rights as men.
    For me, personally, no. I'd go crazy with boredom as a housewife. I hate cooking and I hate cleaning. Plus, I'm not comfortable not having my own source of income - if I move in with someone, I don't want to end up stuck in a bad situation because I can't afford to move out.

    Do you think your truly equal?
    I KNOW I am equal, without a doubt. It's society at large that still hasn't caught up.
    There are many other countries around the world where women aren't seen as the equals of men. Sex-selective abortions are still a big problem. Men outnumber women in managerial/higher-tier roles significantly. Female politicians are criticised based on appearance, but I never hear anyone complain that Stephen Harper's suit is ill-cut or something. Women are still under-represented in many tech or sciency jobs. I still hear shocking reports of overt sexism in certain career paths like law enforcement. Just because you don't see the sexism on a daily basis doesn't mean it's gone.

    How does work influence your role as a woman and as a wife?
    I'm not a wife, so it has no influence there.
    I'm a female working in the IT sector, so when I was in school I got a lot more offers of help from my fellow classmates. I'm not sure if it's because they thought it was because I couldn't do the work, or if it was just because I was a female geek and they thought that was hot. I was the only woman in my graduating class for my program. I don't feel like it's hindered me in the workplace. My supervisor and boss (both male) have repeatedly said they're confident I can handle any project they throw at me, and most of the project managers I work with are women as well.


    If men "traditionally" were suppose to pay bills and act as a supporter how does that influence your relationship now?
    I'm not in a relationship, so not at all. I'm in a comfortable place financially on my own. I've bought a car and a house and have no debt other than my mortgage. A boyfriend would be nice at this point, but I feel no obligation. If ever I invite a man to live with me, I'd expect to split the bills 50/50.

    Nahhh...You know the kind who has airplanes for hearts and harpsichords for kidneys. They just make such beautiful noises and the shapes of their biceps are so wonderful. Oh yeah, they're lovely on marriage ceremonies as well, much better with the hands than those schmuck traditional women.
