Weak Men Fear Strong Women

One can (and probably should) disagree with Hillary Clinton on matters of policy; one does not have to like Michelle Obama even though the odds are that she's smarter AND physically stronger than you; I don't even know who the heck those Russian athletes were who kissed at the recent Games to protest anti-gay laws.
But one thing is clear: much of the opposition to them is founded not on policy, but simply on the fear of strong women.
I suggest guys (and overly traditionalist women) relax. A little more competition is a good thing, and strong women taking their place in the world will make it better for all of us.
Or be afraid, because you know can't compete with them. It's your choice.
Facing your fears is the first step to surmounting them.

And pointing out those fears *is* kinda fun. It lead me to create the Weak Men Fear Strong Women page - jump in, it's fun!

Other States
According the the ABA, the following states have no mandatory CLE requirement: 
  • Connecticut 
  • District of Columbia 
  • Maryland 
  • Massachusetts 
  • Michigan 
  • South Dakota.
Attorneys there may still find CLE programs substantively useful, but I have not focused on finding free resources for those states in the absence of a requirement.
