    Dear Gregg; you are right to observe that we, as a society, tend to take it for granted that women are ALWAYS the "gentler sex". Generalizations are problematic in many ways, but still the underlying truths hold; regardless of gender, we ought always to treat one another with love & respect. I, too, have a tendency to "hone in" on details. Perhaps if you could take a step back and gain a feel for the general tone of love throughout Conference you would not feel so wounded? Regards.

    Perhaps I am alittle sensitive but for many conferences I have heard one sided views. It is true that I do not attend Relief Society on sundays so I don't know what they say there as compared to Priesthood but the one sidedness hit again in the talk to General Conference by Elaine S. Dalton as the Young Women General President. One problem with General Conference is that when you shoot a blunderbuss many pellets hit unintended people causing collateral damage to them.
    There is much said about how men should treat women but I seem to have missed the reverse. I don't think that men, like women, are second class to the other.

    Every day of sorrow since my youngest son's passing last year was softened by Elder Hales' sweet reminder that the Dear Lord suffered for our SORROWS as well as our sins (smile)

    I hope the rest of the world heard the same message and understandings of Faith.
