"However, a gentleman in the discussion following the blog soon made my point without my having to do so when he said: ???Personally I don???t like it when women are too ???manly.??? Men and women are created equal, not identical. Men have strong points and women have theirs. I think it???s best to play to your strengths, and to be yourself, instead of being a baracuda!???"
In other words, you're a woman, act like one and know your place. My place is where I WANT to be. The statement of "men and women are created equal, not indentical" is a ploy to pull the reader's attention off the fact the commenter wants to continue to separate the sexes.
Working in a male dominated world, being called a "harpie" is the least of the jabs that have been sent to me. However, instead of being insulted, I have made it known that each and every name I have been called is fought for and earned. I make sure they understand to put Ms. in front of it and spell with capital letters. If this indeed makes me a "barracuda", then so be it.
