Again you go on the attack even as you protest that previously you did not. This time it is for my supposed lack of understanding of how to use the “return key” as you put it. Perhaps you did not mock my Ph.D. yet you clearly implied that my possession of said degree and my “advertisement” of it in my profile suggests I believe it puts me in a position of authority over others. You specifically said that you would expect someone who has such a degree would understand how to use line breaks. “They are free on the Internet” were your exact words.

We are in complete agreement also I think that a persons education or credentials are irrelevant to their ability to contribute to a given topic of discussion. At this point our conversation has devolved so for afield from our original disagreement that progress forward seems impossible. It really sucks because I think we fundamentally believe the same thing. Gender differences should not be something we are still talking about. It should be an accepted fact that all genders are equal. They deserve all of the same rights, and accept all the same responsibilities as every other.
