I think the belief that women and men are so psychologically different is what causes them to be different.

There are some general differences in chemical composition (estrogen vs testosterone), and that mainly only plays an affect during & after puberty, but the most formative thoughts of our youth are environmentally malleable (their parents thoughts). These thoughts are products of physical results of those chemicals guiding the formation of social roles around physical form: men are generally stronger so men do things that require strength, leaving women to do things that don't.

They are entirely different.

The force exhibited by the vehicle upon the road is called gravity and often called weight.
The more massive the vehicle, the more weight the road is supporting, and the greater the "normal force" the road must return.

The greater the weight of the vehicle, the more chemical bonds broken within the pavement, the more cracks.

Incorrect or simply poorly portrayed.

Libertarians believe:
1) Laws restricting private property are unlawful in a republic ("public thing") as the republican structure does not have the authority to control any individual unless that individual is breaching the rights of another. A republic is not supposed to have anymore authority than any individual member of the society. Republics are created for the common good, such as for the building and maintence of roads and the defense of the rights of people. What we have today is a form of mob rule, a false democracy, as the republic has completely and entirely breached its founding principles and has been unlawfull, in practice, been converted into a raw democracy.

2) Government does not have the authority to force an individual to do anything WHATSOEVER, unless that individual is explicitly damaging another person's rights. IT IS NOT that libertarians do not believe we should help addicts, but it is NOT THE GOVERNMENT'S JOB. Any other organization may fill the role.

3) What?

4) What? You have a rather prejudiced view of Libertarian?

The US was founded as a republic, a structure designed solely to protect & defend the rights of the people.
Today, this organization is used to limit and suppress the rights of the people through intimidation and force.

Society does NOT need bodies on a treadmill unless you're using society as a massive global offensive weapon.
Most working individuals within a "modern" society DO NOT PRODUCE A PHYSICAL PRODUCT.

"We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living." -- Buckminster Fuller

Here we have an effect of the supposedly republican government overstepping its bounds and pretending to be a democracy, resulting in the disrespect of the rights of the people. My rights end where yours begin.

We now have people telling other people what they can and cannot do with their own property; their own bodies, their own compounds, their own free agency.

What happened to liberty, freedom, and responsibility? Profit. Nearly every single one of our mainstream industries have been monopolized by social industrial groups as if we were living in a democracy, & not a republic, as was founded.

Who cares that the constitution is entirely ignored by everyone in the field of law? You should. Modern law is unlawful in its entirety.

The tenth amendment clearly states:

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Today, everything is under the rule of the plutocracy of the Forcefully United States Corporation.

Actually, executive orders are not mentioned once within the constitution. They only have force of law because they are a part of "private law" (as opposed to common law). You are subject to "private law" in this nation if you are a "United States Citizen" which was a class of citizenship that did not exist pre-civil war and was made for the recently freed slaves. Prior to the civil war, everyone was a citizen of their state. Prior to the civil war, the united states was a group of nations united for defensive purposes, each locally self-ruling.

Today we stand as the Forcefully-United States, one body, dominated via violence. We are no where near our founder's intents.

It is our culturally indoctrinated embarrassment of our personal sexual selves that result in this sort of nonsense.

Sex is okay. Nudity is okay. What is not okay is how uptight our society is about the natural human body.
Being seen having sex by any number of people should never result in the death of an individual and any link between the two is false.

Children are inherently unbalanced - this is why there is such thing as a legal age.
If a child is having sex the parent should be held accountable and charged with allowing this activity.
Parents must be held responsible for their children's actions.
