Question from a good Guy friend of mine [View all]

I've got a devils advocate sort of subject for your opinion. As long as we use "male" names for males and "female" names for females, do we have any hope of equality? As a male brought up in the era that I was, when I hear something like....Go ask Melissa, or Go ask Mark? Certain subconscious assumptions probably take place. Just my thought today.


I'm at work and can't answer him properly, but what do you guys think?
