You are right. But another perspective is that women through-out history haven't been fairly compensated for their expertise. And many times it's because women don't expect it, don't push for it.
And define 'expertise'. How do you quantify life experience? I like that here at MDC we tend to celebrate feminine knowledge, women's wisdom. The problem is that sometimes this wisdom descends into 'woo'.
Ultimately I agree with you, though.
By the way, is Sam's Club a membership store, like Costco?
True, but often, on message boards, judgmental people with high post counts are somehow considered more knowledgeable, which is kind of odd to me. That's not to say that women should't value each others' opinions, just that we should step back and give ourselves some credit as well. I'm really bothered that people feel "judged" on message boards, as if everyone else is so much smarter, based on the fact that they can point out the errors of others on a message board. It also bothers me that an entire board can be defined by the "stand-out" posts of a few people. (another thing not exclusive to MDC)
