Credit where credit is due

Dave Winer posted on Facebook a critique of the saying that “A man’s success has lot to do with the kind of woman he chooses to have in his life, “ noting that the reverse would not sound so good. He commented that it is infantile to be dependent on women. Rather than converse further on his thread, I am writing here. While Dave’s critique is true in the absolute sense (and even then only in the hetero case), there is the relative truth as well. I do credit my wife with a lot, but as a member of the community of support that helps make my life a success. Among the latter I include Dave himself, with all our volatile history included and the fact that he always lives alone and is a New Yorker while I am a married-19-years Northern Californian through and through. Some irony here... Further irony in that I am in a long-term argument with a close friend about his obsession with relationships with women, with me trying to get him to be independent. Life...
