okay, lets give the man/woman jokes a rest for once?

wtf has this got to do with music? and when was a man wrong when his
wife /is/ around?
some women think differently you know, and some women are just as
offended by the male stereotyping that marxist-feminists are doing and
have done over the last 30 years as the men who have been subject to
these, /sexist/, judgemental jokes.

however - this joke judges both a man and a woman, according to a
stereotypical marriage.

both judgements are wrong, and both i take exception to, as a married
woman, a married non-stereotypical woman who is married to a
non-stereotypical man, and both very happily - and I must say that the
fact that our marriage does not perpetuate the hatred between the sexes
that the sex wars have brought is a very strong part of that.

so stfu and talk about music. this is a music list, not a sex wars
therapy list. go search usenet if you need to vent your spleen - as i
suggest to all men and women on this list who have a grudge against the
opposite sex or have problems in their marriage.

how about... in place of your question:

if a tree falls in the forest, and noone is around to hear it, what loss
is there to the archive of world sound?
