No, I see women's rights being molded toward walking incubators that shouldn't be trusted to manage themselves. Hence the problem.

I actually read many books, and am most likely smarter than you. Your pathetic comment actually made me dumber.

While it's unfair, think about it, if your a boss, you can't hire someone who won't be working, it's not good for your business. Now, is it fair to not hire a pregnant woman who needs the money? No. Is it fair for the boss if he's forced to hire someone who won't be working so instead of gaining money he'll be losing money? No. Shit happens bro.

ok wow...um in which way is the govt doing TOO much for women? And men do get a say in having their kids during a divorce; usually both parents get partial custody and the whole pregnant thing if a woman has a baby she needs time to recover and also needs time to spend w/ that baby so its first couple weeks it grows properly physically n mentally. You will never feel the pain of giving birth so please don't complain about the few weeks women get out of work because they have one

I'll agree in one respect: men should have more say in unwanted pregnancies. If he would prefer that the woman get an abortion, he should be able to pay half the cost of an abortion, and be absolved of all responsibility to the child. It's harder when the woman wants an abortion but he wants the child, but they should be able to come to some sort of arrangement; either she pays restitution or emotional damages, or he adopts the child after birth so she never sees it again.

I also despise affirmative action. I shouldn't get a job over a more qualified male candidate just because I'm woman.

What other areas are there where women are unfairly elevated?

If they're talking so casually about ending their child's life then I think they should both go to psychologists

Fun fact (emphasis on the word FACT): Women are the only statistical majority who are still treated as a minority. Everywhere.

I'm curious, where does everyone get this idea that women make less money than men? Is there an actual statistic somewhere?

@jade_m Meanwhile...women are still making less than men. Absolutely ridiculous. OP IS EXTREMELY SEXIST AND IGNORANT!!!

1st off, thats a lie. Its a misconception. Why? Because lets say a woman works 8 hours and makes 100 dollars. Now lets say a man makes 120 dollars for that same 8 hours. 9/10 times its not because ones a man and ones a woman. Its 1 of 2 things. Either 1, in the negotiation of the contract, the man was more aggressive while the woman was a little more passive. Theres nothing wrong with that, but its a possibility.
The other possibility is that the man has proven to be a harder worker with his credentials. I can assure you if a woman comes into a job with a masters degree from Yale and the man comes in with a degree from [Insert Loser College], the woman will make more money hands down. Yes, there are some sexist employers in the world, but people have to understand there is a point where one has to walk away from that job, because why would you even want to work under a sexist in the first place?

@Mike http://ctrlv.in/37427 Fuck off.

As a feminist, I support equal rights. Therefor, either EVERYONE signs up for the selective services, or no one does.

Also, I will always offer to pay on a date.

TROOLLLLLLL in the dungeon!

The government should not sponsor any sort of affirmative action. All jobs and admissions policies should be oriented towards being merit based or on a basis of helping the disadvantaged. The problem with today's society is that "disadvantaged" is associated with races, sexual preferences, and other TRAITS that a person cannot help, rather than the truly disadvantaged such as the poor. And poor people come from all races, backgrounds, and countries.

Just another tip for women as for sexism towards men: if you hate a man, accuse him of rape, even if it's false, if you have a couple of friends who can lie about it too, you can get any man in jail. Have fun!

Rape is extremely hard to prove and usually has to have DNA evidence for a prosecution. Especially because if there is reasonable doubt then there won't be a conviction. I'm not denying that there are false accusations of rape and that it's horrible when that happens, but it's only 2% of reported rapes that are false, which is consistent with the false accusations of any other crime. Around 70% of women raped do not report it because they are afraid (or whatever other reason) most rapes that are reported aren't taken to court and out of the ones that are only about 50% are convicted (depending where you live mostly it's less than that). So there is a much higher chance of a man getting away with rape than being falsely accused of it.
