The Ugly Truth

I watched the film The Ugly Truth in mild amusement, like I do most films about male-female dynamics. While the movie is meant to be entertaining, it kind of highlights a lot of what goes on with gender biases and social perceptions of men and women.

The male lead character basically describes men as the simple creatures who will do and say whatever it takes to bed a woman. Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but it’s a romantic comedy.

It did make me look further into the notion that men and women can both be ethically ambiguous. I read somewhere that that socialists consider a component of “ambivalent sexism” in the theory of benevolent sexism: “Women compared to men, tend to have a superior moral sensibility”. They actually conducted studies and claim that “women have a superior moral and ethical fortitude as compared to men”. I don’t know about that one!

It lends itself to male vs. female battle but we already know we are different. What are your thoughts? Should we really give credibility to these kind of studies?

PG – In.sane.

Shoot, I know of several high school football programs that go away for football camp. Some go to Jekyll Island for a week of numerous practices. Imagine the heat and humidity on Jekyll Island.

I see nothing wrong with it because the heat doesn’t really go away until between late September to Mid October. Therefore, games will be played in heat. So, might as well get conditioned for it.

My wife says the same things that you are saying though.

We always had plenty of water breaks. We never practiced between 12N and 5P. 10-12 and 6-(whenever the coach felt like it) were our two a days. Once school started, we had practice starting at 3:45 PM until 6:30/7PM. We were so happy when the clock fell back at the end of October. (The practice field had no lights).

Kimmie – Nothing too hard…just layered some different greens and lettuces…super thin cucumber slices…cherry tomatoes…sharp cheddar…and had some ‘real’ bacon bits and a great salad topper on the side…and stayed basic with the dressing – ranch and thousand islands…

I wanted to throw in some fruit slices with some raspberry vinagrette, but I know er’body can’t get with that in their salad…

My wife says the same things that you are saying though.

PG – That’s why it’s good that you are around. Thousands of kids do it every year and are fine. I’m sure it builds endurance and probably even character too.

I’ve never had a football practice. I wouldn’t know how hard is too hard, or how much water or breaks a kid would need. Some coaches to go too far.

But I’ll be steering my kids towards indoor sports anyway. Mainly because they are probably going to be tall, but also because I’m going to have to sit out there and watch them, and I’d rather not brave the extreme elements either!!! :lol:

I’ve run a soccer tournament in -15 degree windchill. I was only there because I was paid to be! The parents were there for love. No thanks! :lol:
