I mean who do your really trust?? Who would you allow to open any drawer in your house, open any door in your house or your heart? Who would you let see your bank account or your E-Mails?
Trust is the most important thing in any relationship...friendship, with relatives, or romantic.
People walk in and out of your life....so think back and let us know how many people in your life right now do you really trust? What's the most at any one time?
I trust my brother, my best friend, and my fiancee and my daughter.
But I trust my brother and best friend more, because I am aware of certain blind spots shared by my fiancee and my daughter. They would never knowingly let me down, but I know that there are a few areas where those two could be easily deceived, whereas my brother and best friend are more suspicious regarding those matters.
Nope, not sexism. Individualism. Neither of them are as distrustful or skittish around religion or metaphysics as I am, and I have seen them both allow happy magical thinking to influence their decision-making process.
Which is fine for them. But if left to their own devices, they would make, in totally good faith and with a clear conscience, decisions concerning me that I would not agree with.
Doesn't mean that they're not smart, decent or capable, or that I don't love 'em with all my heart. Just that they don't think as much like me as do my brother or my best friend - Who, as long as we're throwing around accusations of "sexism", I notice that you didn't bother to ask if my best friend is male or female. So, Nyaaaaahhh.
