     You know how women (and men!) get on my case for pointing out how
they are responsible for how their sons turn out?  They always say I am
blaming everything on the mother.

     Actually the truth is these women are trying to escape blame for
the outcome of their own actions.

     If you CHOOSE to have a child you are FULLY ACCOUNTABLE for how
they turn out.

     Just as the Captain of a ship is responsible for discipline on his
ship, so too is your family a ship, you are the captain and co captain
and YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DISCIPLINE ON YOUR SHIP.  Thus if the son
turns out criminal, you yourself must have a criminal streak 3 miles
wide that let it go unnoticed OR UNHANDLED in your son.

     Any criminal streak can be handled, but not by a criminal.

     Since the mother is the one with most contact with the child during
the first 5 years of life, she is most responsible for the development
of the child's sense of ethics, fair play, self worth, productivity and
world view.  If you treat your son like a little slave, he will return
the favor later to other women.  You think there is some other cause?
You flatter yourself.

     Adore is adamant about this point, probably to weed out the
inferior females who not only can not stomach responsibility in any
guise, but who especially can not stomach responsibility for men and
how they treat women.

     Women feel dependant on men, those with any awareness do anyhow.
They wish men were their slaves and would do their bidding.  However
women do not have the scope, span, depth and field to determine the
course of existance any more than the sailor can well determine the
course of his ship.  Not even men have the ability to determine the
farthest goals of the ships destination.  This is for the Gods.  Even
the Captain of the ship has his Supreme Commander.  The point is the
hierarchy goes upward, not downward.

     Every junior would like to make a slave out of their superior.  The
superior is trying to make an apprehentice out of the junior so that the
junior can be a superior too one day.  The junior is trying to make a
slave out of the superior so that the superior can stay a superior
forever and work for the junior.  The junior does not want to become a
superior, he does not want the blame or the responsibility for being in
command.  He wants the superior to take all the blame but to do the
junior's bidding anyhow.

     One finds this rampant in families at all levels within the family.

     So women, if you wish a world full of advanced men that treat women
in a properly advanced fashion, then procreate them into existance and
train them to be pilots rather than little slaves to women.  They WILL
return the favor.

     If you wish to train women to be pilots too, that is fine.

     Leave the innocence and blamelessness and sweetness and light and
victimhood to inferiors of your own kind.  Like pigs in mud, they will
revel in it and thank you for the opportunity.

     God did not give Woman a brain so that she could blame her
condition on her own Sons.
