I will take the 1920's ,   Prohibition was in and that was a pain in the azz , but on the bright side it ushered in the era of the "Speak Easy" and if ya had some balls ya could make your family fortune doing a little bootlegging

Ah times were so much simpler then

If I could bring toilet paper along      , the Revolutionary War era.... well, and a few extra sets of eyeglass lenses too

I would take a do over of the 50's.  They were the best.

#22 | 1296 days ago

I think I'd like to have lived in the mid 1700s although, to live in every era from the 1700s on to present day would be nice.  I love history, and I think that going through each part of it would be cool.  The late 1800s and into early 1900s marks the beginning of the industrial age, and I'd like to be there for that while America was still in its age of innocence.  Though, I wonder if in the end I'd have been happier in present day.  Just because all of these labor laws and time of relative peace (look at history from BC till about 1900 and you'd be amazed to find out almost all of that time everyone was at war.) Our life expectancy is longer, men and women are living close to the same length of life.  Everything we take for granted now was built on the backs of those who lived not so long before us.

I wouldn't want to live in the past, it's just a decline of the great technology and advanced medical knowledge that we have today, not to mention the stereotypes that existed back then.

#25 | 1296 days ago

I'm not sure if I'd like to live in another time, but I would like to travel back and check out the best players in baseball. To see Cobb, Ruth, and Gherig play would be priceless. I would also love to go to '76 and see Mark 'The Bird' Fidrych pitch live at Tiger Stadium. That would be amazing. Than I'd jump in my '76 Trans Am and hit a disco or two...

 Either the 30's or 60's.....the 30's because it was the golden age of film and the 60's because i'd have given anything to live in the world while the Beatles were changing it.

I dont know if this would be a good idea especially after not reading but living the 60's. I appreciate the freedom and perserverance my culture has accomplished and I dont think I want to back to things that werent available to me then that is now

I have to disagree. The good thing about these times is more men think women deserve respect, but there are some others that still think we are objects. I believe in a new era of people more concious, willing to change our present, I know we have a lot of bad things today, call me a dreamer, but I still have faith in people.

pfst, theres going to be stereotypes no matter what time frame you are in. but the advanced technology part does sound sweet.

 It's funny, but it's not, that you answered that. They were talking about the LeBron situation on PTI yesterday and how the hate shown towards him after he publicly stated he was going to Miami had a lot to do with race. I never even thought of it like that before. So, why the 60's for you? 
#45 | 1295 days ago

 I would probably choose the Revolutionary War period. I remember the grade school field trips to forts that pretended it was that era and it seemed pretty cool.

the 60's for the lifestyle, the music, alot of little things....my family seemed to have a great time minus the racism. I just think I would enjoy it.

More importantly, what did the hate of LeBron have to do with racism.

People have to EARN respect, man or woman, ya don't just automatically get it for having 2 x chromosomes, so i "respectfully" have to disagree. The problem with women who want to be treated equal to men is that they gladly take all the positive attributes it offers without also "respectfully" dealing with the negative ones. Ya can't have your cake and eat it too because there's nothing worse than a hypocrite. On the other subject, however, we do have a generation coming up now that's actually not going to be more intelligent than the last one. My wife is a teacher and sees it first hand, it's horrible. I, of course, hope i'm wrong but it's pretty bad. Peace.

I think that you're misunderstanding what she's saying. Of course people should have to earn certain types of respect; man or woman. However, in the past even when women deserved (read: did earn) respect, it wasn't always given.

Although - I do think that people in general should receive a modicum of respect from us just as human beings. We should respect all others to a certain degree.

 Sorry, i was replying to VIOLET'S post and must have pressed the wrong button and instead replied to my own. I think the "cake" remark was originally in reference to "eating the WHOLE cake" by yourself and not sharing it. Looking at it that way it actually does make sense.

I always thought "having your cake and eating it too" meant:
To be able to eat all of your cake but still have it. Or it might make more sense to say - to spend every cent of your money but still have it all in your account. I don't know. Most of the time when I see it used, my definition would be completely irrelevant so maybe I'm mistaken.

 If i misunderstood what she said i apologize, but i think it's because it was worded in a very general way. She didn't specify which "types" of respect she was referring to. All she said was that she thinks "more men think women deserve respect today". It said nothing about "women having already earned respect, but not getting it". That's an entirely different ball game. Even if that's what she did mean though, just as many men aren't respected by women for different things. It's a two way street.

I think you are correct, however, in saying that PEOPLE should receive a modicum of respect from each other just as human beings. To a certain degree, yes, there are no if's, and's, or but's about it. I think you hit the proverbial nail on the head. I just don't think it's fair to use a gender bias and change the word "people" to "women". It just makes it seem like a woman's life or needs are somehow more important than a man's. Peace.

I'll take the first explanation, thanks. Jess' was insane. Because I never understood it, I would just say something like you can't have cake, pie, and cookies at the same time..(i actually have said this and the explanation would be too involved and probably upset me so moving on...)

Oh I do think that women used to have to work harder to receive the same amount of respect as a man in general; and in some cases still to this day. I won't get into specifics but let's take sports for example. You're going to respect a man's opinion about something almost immediately. A woman, however, often has to prove herself before she earns the respect a man gets almost immediately in that field (and some others). I think a lot of us can speak from experience here. It's getting a lot better, but I think it's foolish to deny it happens.

I do hold a different opinion regarding the military.  You're right to say that women sometimes expect the benefits of being treated equally without having to endure the hardships. I think that women and men should have to perform the same physical tests; those who can't pass shouldn't be out there, IMO. But that's neither here nor there.

Well sure a person, man or woman, may respect a guys opinion about something in sports over a woman's. All that is true. It's human nature.None of that means women aren't equal to men, it means they're different than men. Many women, for some reason, confuse different with equal. By the same token most people would take a woman's opinion over a man's in something like childcare. The courts in this country prove that to be true. I mean men, in general, are treated unbelievably unequal by our naive, outdated, and wimpy legal system. Men deal with that disrespect every day . That's why regardless of all our examples, both sexes deserve the same amount of respect, we both have our hardships.... and when i see or hear general, and the key word here is general, remarks like "women deserve respect" , as in violet's post, imo it just sounds like she's saying one sex is, or should be, more important than the other.
I think it would have been cool to live in this era...
