    Groovygirl,

    Is that you in the last picture? Seems you are running for women`s liberation against chauvinism.

    I partly agree but for a country like Sri Lanka which is dominated by male chauvinism it will take sometime to furnish even that. I don`t like to be macho because we are women and women should have womenly thoughts than manly. Thanks

    kamani,

    for some strange reason i like women who have manly thoughts..... may be cos I consider most women are more intelligent than most men out there....

    Thank you realman, that`s not me! Otara is an inspiration to me.

    Kamani,

    Care to explain what womenly thoughts and manly thought are? Thoughts are thoughts, there is no gender.

    [male chauvinism]

    If you are strong and independent your gender won`t be an obstacle. No choice but you`ll be noticed, Just like my featured story. as she said `I don`t judge people on gender, and I trust I don`t get judged likewise.`

    hmm...if you are insecured, it`s hard to be with a succesful woman, and that leads to...

    Ok, fair enough!

    Its just that I feel for some reason I am a girl and my thoughts are not the way that a man thinks. e.g. I don`t go out and fight even if I am hurt inside or have late night drinks as a part of socilising. Perhaps I was brought up in a Sinhalese/Buddhist manner in Sri Lanka. You may be different, which is fine.

    Marky,

    It`s nice to be different for e.g. I don`t glorify violence, but love cocktails.
