Chris, ED and all:
To me is not a question about men or women but human beings.  There are times I 
don't get on with certain type of men and there are times I find difficult to 
get on with certain type of women.  There are very competitive men and there 
are very competitive women but there are also all those to whom value the most 
the quality contact they have with other human beings regardless they are men 
or women.  In real life I also have some male friend to whom first encounter 
was a disaster and then after some disagrements and fights become very close 
friends.  There is no difference here for as long as the person in front of us 
is of the same wave of thinking.

You mean Kristy?

I am not an alpha female. More like a beta male. 

It is not true in my experience that strong women cannot be friends. It happens 
all the time in non-male dominated arenas.

I take you at your word when you say:  "I admire people who don't fear the 
consequences of speaking up their minds ..."  
So, at the risk of of being label "thorny", I say:
Yes, you and Chris could be friends, though probably not when in the same 
kitchen, coffee klatch, or Yahoo group, as both of you are confident, 
strong-willed alpha-females.
With playfully truthful loving-kindness,

Enjoyed the clarity of this post of yours.  
I think that Mike might have been right and there is the possibility that if we 
both met and knew face to face we might become friends.  Anyway, we're in the 
same group and find very silly not to interact with each other.  You're wrong 
and I do like you.  We both are impulsive ladies. I like from the posting you 
sent to Anthony your very good intentions of helping him. There was warm and 
compassion in your personal way of posting .   I admire people who don't fear 
the consequences of speaking up their minds specially with taboo subjects as 
the one you spoke about.   Interaction between Anthony and yourself was an 
interesting dharma.  
Can we make up and be friends?
