A matriarchy...

A Terroistic Threat?

(speaking from my observations only, women would be much more brutal as an enemy than men!)

-- Doreen (animalwaitress@yahoo.com), February 15, 2002.

I must respectfully disagree Doreen ( Hi, miss seeing you girl;- )!!!), I would call it "A Peaceable Kingdom"!!!

Yea, we women can have some tremendous "catfights", but usually can work things out with much greater presense of mind and a larger realization of the total impact on the world's economy and human suffering and well-being.

On the other hand, men will usually slug it out, then shake hands and forget about it. I've seen women still not speaking to each other after 20 years over the most trivial disagreement.

And no, Mitch, I don't know the answer to your original question...as usual we women have gone off on a tangent. :) :) :)

Those who study latin can figure this one out.~

A box office?

-- Big Tex (nospamforme@nospam.com), February 15, 2002.

Steady Stan, we are just looking for a word here and its not Armageddon!!

-- mitch hearn (moopups@citlink.net), February 15, 2002.

Thank you, thank you to all of you who answered. I had a very emotionally difficult day yesterday and I feel awful today. Every answer made me laugh and for that I'm grateful! God bless!

P.S. I studied latin 40 years ago and I haven't a clue what the answer is!

-- Ardie/WI (ardie54965@hotmail.com), February 15, 2002.

I know, I know! Dh gave me enough hints till I figured it out! But I'm not going to tell yet and spoil all the fun.

-- Lenette (kigervixen@webtv.net), February 15, 2002.

Uh...a feminocracy?

-- chuck in md (woah@mission4me.com), February 15, 2002.

Stan mentioned hot flashes - my reliable source says they are power surges!!

I always wanted to visit one o' those Amazon colonies. Okay, I'll shut up now. --Happy trails, CAbin Fever

Chuck and Debbie have the right idea but not the right word.~

-- Cathy N. (homekeeper86@sympatico.ca), February 15, 2002.

Well, latin for "female" is "femina" so would it be "feminarchy"?

-- Tracy (trimmer31@hotmail.com), February 15, 2002.

Cathy and Deddie have it half right.~

-- mitch hearn (moopups@citlink.net), February 15, 2002.

Tracy is also whom was posting at the same time as me. Your in the right part of the alphabet.~

Sherry, you are very close.

-- mitch hearn (moopups@citlink.net), February 15, 2002.

You know, Mitch, I looked at the title of this thread again and just had this vision of a horde of yuppie women, credit cards in hand, running through the mall on the day after Thanksgiving....

But I know that's not the right answer.

-- Lenette (kigervixen@webtv.net), February 15, 2002.

Femicracy? Feminacracy?

-- Tracy (trimmer31@hotmail.com), February 15, 2002.

I see where I made an error and got caught asleep on watch and could have mislead you with my comments. Since the cats out of the bag anyhow the word is Gynarchy.

-- mitch hearn (moopups@citlink.net), February 15, 2002.

Sounds too much like anarchy.

-- Randal at home in Brazil (randal@onebox.com), February 15, 2002.

Well, now that we know what it's called........

What say we give it a shot!!!???? ;)

-- hmm (h.m.metheny@att.net), February 15, 2002.

What caliber?!!

-- mitch hearn (moopups@citlink.net), February 15, 2002.

Hmmm, I thought maybe it would be called a Fempire. ;)

You are all too late, the current government of New Zealand is lead by a woman as was it's predecessor. For a short period of time, Prime Minister, Chief justice, leader of the opposition party, CEO of largest company, sovereign's representative and of course the sovereign were all posts occupied by women.
