I think lowering the standards is wrong. However, I know a couple of women who could pass with the higher standards. And should they chose to take the test, they should be given the same chance as the men.

"When did the real, actual, proper, heterosexual man die?"

He never died. He just decided that the world changed and so must he..just as the hetrosexual woman also had to change.

What is your fucking problem asshole? Did daddy and moomy leave you watching tv on your own too long again? What did you watch? Probably "the man show", the ultimate knowledge-bank for every teenage manboy, or maybe you were busy reading the history books on (the romantic days of the) CAVEMEN?!

How old are you retard, 12?

Jeannette X is completely right, you are a little boy on the inside, except that I won't be as nice as her; I have to take it one step farther, you are one stone-aged ignoramous fuck-head of extreme proportion!

I think its about high time you get your fat head out your ass and take a good long look outside MORON! Despite the bullshits of a medievel political administration, I can GARANTEE you that this is a whole new millenium!..Anno 2003 asshole! Men are as manly as they need to be, and women as much as they need be, and you know what? With just a DROP a little humanity, we could all share the same planet in peaceful co-exsistance with each other!
You? Unfortunately, you are suffering huge complexes, perhaps getting an extension for your dick will make you shut the fuck up already!

Hey Zos, have you met Ranxer? He's going to be assuming your responsibilities on this board, because well. . .How can I put this nicely? You're uneducated, uncritical and rather bland -which wouldn't be so bad but most of your posts sound like an echo of what has already been said, and more eloquently.

We've been happy to have you with us for this long, but I'm afraid your knee-jerk responces are just no longer required in this forum. We appreciate your enthusiasm and will keep your resume on file in case another position opens up, but you should probably just move on. With your expertise, you would certainly be an invaluable asset to alot of other boards, and we don't want to hold you back from reaching your full potential.

Don't call us, we'll call you.

In my city anyways they are allowed to try the test, its just that the test is really tough as it should be, and as I mention before, none have pass the test so far. I'm speculating that these women that are interested in front line emergency services are either going into the police dept. or ambulance services.

I suppose it's ironic that, in a pride, it's the lioness that does the hunting. The male lion is generally lazy and helpless.

Had to wade through a bunch of sites using the lion metaphor in human homosexuality to find this one:

Lion, Without Lioness
By Suvira Srivastav

In the dry scrub of Gir National Park in Gujarat, B P Pati, Deputy Conservator of Forests, has found what he believes is evidence for homosexual behaviour among Asiatic lions (Panthera leo persica) in the absence of females. Pati, along with a team of dedicated wildlifers, studied a young pair of lions, around six to seven years of age, and they showed tendencies of homosexuality.

Back in 1982, Sanat Chauhan, now Principal Chief Conservator of Forests in Gujarat, had made similar observations on a pair of lionesses in the world famous home of the Asiatic lion. Meanwhile, experts working on African lions have never come across similar behaviour.

Aberrations are far from unusual among animals. Studying the behaviour of animals such as the lion is a painstakingly slow process that can take years of observation and a meticulous understanding of the circumstances that lead to a particular pattern, a choice of action, and a course of life among animals. In other words, cases such as Pati’s observations are best treated as individual cases without making generalizations for the entire species in general.

This is perhaps why one of the world’s best known big cats experts, Peter Jackson, Ex-chair of the IUCN Cat Specialist Group and Advisor and Editor of Cat News, has expressed a note of caution. He says that close friendships develop between individuals of the same sex in many, if not all, species, including humans. But they are not necessarily sexual and it is essential to find out that mating took place. Pati has given photographic evidence of the finding in Gir, with detailed explanations, but as the pair was observed only for one season, it may be premature to draw inferences on whether it is an acquired habit or mere adaptation to circumstances.

The lions of Gir are famous for their companionship, and it is well known that except during mating, they prefer to associate with members of their own sex. Scientists have observed how two male lions feed simultaneously with their heads touching. Females rubbing their heads together, a gesture normally seen in courting lions, and sharing a carcass are other such observations.

Under normal circumstances, Asiatic lions live and hunt in a group, or the pride. Like human families, a pride is a stable and permanent social group of related adult females and males (whoever is in possession of the group at that time) and their cubs. This family occupies a particular ‘home range’ or ‘territory’. The lions’ territory is the place of maximum action where hunting, resting, feeding and the rearing of cubs take place. Normally a lioness with cubs prefers to confine herself to a smaller area with protection and food for the cubs. The males occupy a larger area of control, which may overlap with that of more than one female. This provides them an opportunity to mate with as many females of the group as possible.

In normal course, a mating pair stays close together for days, hunting as a pair for a long span before actual mating occurs. This stems from the lioness allowing only one male to form such an association at one time. This prolonged association reassures the female that the preferred male is the right occupant of the territory and not an intruder. On the other hand, males are quite fussy during courting and do not tolerate the presence of alien lions and any intrusion leads to serious fights.

Incidentally, the lions studied by Pati and his team are normal healthy males that prefer each other’s company but have also sired cubs. Together, they control a 70-square-kilometre territory that has four females. Pati says: ‘The period of study happened to coincide with the prime season of mating, and all the four lionesses of the pride were involved in rearing cubs.’ He believes this circumstance to be central to the two male lions choosing to remain together.

According to Dr Craig Packer, professor at the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behaviour in the University of Minnesota who has been working on the lions of Serengeti, he has never come across any prolonged homosexual behaviour in the wild. However, he does mention ‘a couple of cases of genetic mutant males that behaved exactly like males’. Packer says that this condition occasionally occurs in dogs too and is due to a defect in the male hormone receptors. Homosexuality in African lions has been observed only in captive lions and has been attributed to that unusual circumstance. However, what triggered this behaviour in the Asiatic lion is difficult to ascertain. The best choice for Pati and his team would be to extend the study and watch out for larger trends. Meanwhile, it’s a jury that is still out.

Well she never asks for very much and I don't refuse her.

Always treat her with respect, I never would abuse her.

Help me build a mansion from my little pile of clay. Hey, hey, hey.

Well she knows what I'm about,

She can take what I dish out, and that's not easy,

Well she knows me through and through,

She knows just what to do, and how to please me.

She's a lady. Whoa, whoa, whoa. She's a lady.

Talkin' about that little lady and the lady is mine.
