Using pseudonym A. Guy Maligned, I expose mysteries of why men and women have so much trouble living together as couples. And why it is that as women goes, so goes society.
I dedicate this blog to females that groom and dress to be pretty instead of erotic, attractive instead of comfortable, and modest instead of convenient. Each one reminds how much more beautiful the world can be.
My World War II generation has something that younger generations have lost. We consider the opposite sex separate, equal, and more highly respected than our own gender. Separate because sex differences do matter. Equal because equality is impossible to achieve on earth, but we all deserve it according to the Declaration of Independence and constitutional law. More respectful of the opposite sex because we admire rather than envy their uniqueness.
Married to Grace in our first and only marriage for each, we raised three boys but lost one to leukemia when he was 30.
It took awhile, but we learned new ways to make the days blissful for each other. Consequently, after 59 years we had a great, fun-filled life. She graciously and encouragingly smoothed out wrinkles in all that you read. Without her wonderful support, unwavering confidence, and extreme patience, this blog would be just a dream about many unwritten books. Then, she passed away in February 2014.
My experience accumulated across many professional sectors that included senior naval officer, major university professor, graduate college dean, congressional chief of staff and campaign manager, and a unique policy billet in a Fortune 100 company. The primary influences for this blog, however, flow out of 66 years of studying human behavior as vocation and avocation and teaching motivational theory, leadership, and management in the navy and business world where men and women were expected to be more alike for mission achievement. Then, about the turn of the century I started comparing and isolating differences in the sexes and using those to uncover and explain different behaviors that have accumulated to well over a million words in more than 2700 daily articles.
