Der går ikke lang tid inden Anna og Liv svarer. De tager NN ikke alvorligt. Alt for ofte har de skullet høre sådanne meningsløse, dumme kommentarer. Liv mener: "Hvis alle vore opponenter var så primitive, ville det måske være lidt lettere at nå nogen vegne." De andre giver hende ret og diskussionen er afsluttet i den omgang.Andetsteds diskuterer en flok kvinder "Hvad er en mand?". Sapho beklager at nogle mænd ikke engang kan føre en flydende samtale. Sidsel syntes at mænd er smukkest i 17 - 22 års alderen, men tilføjer at hun selv nok skulle vælge en noget ældre fyr: "I den alder er de fleste parate til at etablere sig, hvilket er af fordel, hvis man som kvinde har et biologisk ur der tikker." I en anden tråd på feministiskforum.dk bliver der diskuteret i hvor vidt det er nødvendigt for kvinder at underspille deres klogskab for at få en kæreste. "Skal det være prisen?" spørger Anne. Charlotte tilføjer: "Piger underspiller også hvor gode de er til sport og hvor rå de kan være til at diskutere."

NN, som midlertidigt har beroliget sig lidt: "Så vågn op kvinder!".Diskussionen er i fuld gang. Mænd tør næsten ikke nærme sig, fordi de på lang afstand kan fornemme at de andre næppe vil kigge på deres bidrag med store beundrende øjne. Og kvinderne debatterer så tastaturet gløder. De er ikke de eneste der diskuterer. I virkeligheden fortsætter de den evighedsdebat de har påbegyndt i 70'erne: kønsdebatten.Feministerne har dog også skabt grundlag for en udvidet mediepolitisk diskussion i den vestlige verden. En spændende og vigtig diskussion, som burde have beskæftiget os gennem hele historien. Der kan på lang sigt nemlig kun opnås en holdende ligevægt hvis man har to modstridende poler. Fjernsynet, aviser og blade har også taget diskussionen op om mænd og kvinder, deres forhold, deres rettigheder og normer; deres may'n'musts!De seneste års videnskabelige undersøgelser har suppleret kønsdebatten med neurologiske...
