Hi Mike, you really like living on the edge. If we do not get feed back from the the female gender and their views of retirement I will be shocked.
I bet you sleep with one eye open , the other is likely swelled shut.
My father was a man who had these ideals, a woman's place was in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant. I loved my father but really disliked some of his thinking.
My youngest daughter (30) works in the construction industry for a large local company, started as a cashier and now in human resources. As she rose through the ranks she got her degree in business and is now completing her masters in business.
A story she told me stands out in my head. While she was department head for this company, she put in a request to take a fork lift course. Her manager very stupidly said, "why do you need a fork lift course, you are a female".
She is a petite blonde and very mild mannered, until that happened. She told him her thinking on the statement and took it to his superior. The short story she got her course and he got a reprimand.
This type of thinking still exists. A great subject and well posted for controversy and eye opening thinking.
To clarify my position, I believe we (as a species) can do whatever we would like to pursue. That gender should not be stereo typed based on antique thinking. My better half and I have raised our 5 children, with this thinking.
What a great subject,, yes sir!
