Bear-wants-a-deer was VERY insulting to women (and for me as a men very
embarrassing). Especialy the second posting, in my opinion. He didn't
even bend his knees a fraction of an inch. He sure is pretty desperate
and he will be for a long long time I'm afraid. He doesn't have guts,
he's dumb. Not even stupid, just plain dumb. 

If Cynthia or anybody else offended, she/he is offended. Period. The
last thing we need is that you come in defending this idiot and tell us
our feelings are wrong. You're only insulting more. It is okay to post
if you have anything to contribute to a discussion, but please refrain
from this kind of crap. 

just 2 cents, GJ

P.s. Sorry, Cynthia, I know you are absolutely capable to handle this
guy, but I just couldn't resist to use the time-zone advantage.
