    It does indeed. This is what I was referring to when I used the phrase 'explicit gender bias'. Whether or not it reflects the truth is irrelevant. - Puttycatdude


    Gender bias is a mere opinion. If you are a dude and you try to join an all ladies slimming club, is that gender bias on the part of the ladies for excluding you because of your gender? That God is referred to in the masculine is no more biased than that.

    There has been noticeably in recent times a marked attempt through common culture to subtly obscure the distinctions, uni-sex perfumes, teenage emo boys that look like chicks! Glam rockers with glittery eye shadow, all essentially effeminate, and then we have seen chicks wielding AK47 rifles and through a hail of bullets blasting her way to super-heroine status. Pirates of the Caribbean 4 is a perfect example of this, Johnny Depp, a pirate that essentially runs like a chick, wears make-up like a chick and to all intents and purposes is essentially quite effeminate and dear Penelope Cruz, sword wielding Latino babe, not happy unless shes slicing up some poor seaman in the Kings service rather than dicing up peppers for a Tabasco sauce.. Surely there must be a happy medium somewhere without slipping into stereotypes. Masculine men and feminine ladies? a flashback to a bygone era? Or will the secular liberalists have their way and rename all the man holes , people holes, because of a perceived , 'gender bias', on the part of manufacturers of man hole covers? How far are they willing to go, who can tell. It is to laugh.

    I am gender biased. I prefer women. Specifically my wife.

    I also believe women are superior to men as it relates to the species.

    ok, do you think there have been attempts through popular culture to obscure the differences between men and women though? Do you think that God in being termed masculine demonstrates a gender bias on the part of the Bible writers? if so how so? if not, why not?

    "Man holes" refers to the holes in the streets that have those round
    metal covers over them. They allow sewage workers access the
    large sewage pipes running under the city streets. Many people,
    like you, do not realize they are down there. So do you think the
    "man hole covers" should be renamed "people hole covers"?

    My online dictionary suggests drain, drainage pit, gully (that's what we use in German, too), gully hole, manhole, sink, sink trap, storm drain, street drain or street inlet. Plenty to choose from!

    Aren't you a punk rocker? Punk chicks often shave their heads and wear combat boots.

    Somehow this conversations has devolved into a comparison of man-holes and man-shafts. 😕

    I still don't understand why 'god' has to have a penis.....

    It wouldn't have anything to do with the fact these books were mostly written by men?

    Men like to be in charge, and specifically in charge of women. Why do you think your religion is biased? look at Leviticus, a man is said BY GOD to be worth 50 shekels, a woman 35, Leviticus 27/3,4.

    Apparently god REALLY loves his penis.
