very true. I hope I wasn't offensive. I was definitely speaking stereotypically... is that, also, how the Torah was written? stereotypically?

my husband - a straight man (at least as far as I know)- is also very nurturing, sensitive, intuitive.... cares about his clothes (I don't), would get his nails done (I don't), etc. smile

the world and its people are fascinating and I don't think that's any coincidence or mistake.

I'm very curious why you would feel that way. A majority of college degrees are being earned by women - 60%. For masters degrees women are currently in the majority. Current estimates say that in another 10 years, the majority of *doctoral* degrees will be earned by women.

So if women are outstripping men in college, in master's degrees and soon in doctorates, that is a lot of time they have to invest - time men are NOT investing in education. So if anything it seems to indicate it is women - not men - who have the ability to spend that time in study.

I believe people can make time for whatever it is that's important to them. I often wonder how so many people on this site can spend so much time posting. smile

When friends ask me how I have time to "get it all done" with four young children - I ask them "How do you have time to get your nails done?" "How do you have time for tennis lessons?"

We all set priorities and if learning and studying to become a rabbi was important to a particular woman - even one with seven children - she would be able to find time to do it!

One rabbi I know wanted to become very attached in a personal way to a certain great rabbi. He moved his young family across the ocean. And as I said, he became very close, working very closely with that rabbi. This could be a whole new thread, but that kind of apprenticeship has traditionally been single sex.
