I cannot even begin to point out all of the fails in this photo.
Because… it’s spot on. There are no fails to be found here. I mean it’s kind of mean to say Feminists are Trash… but as for the general statement… that feminists will never demand these things..
It’s dead on.
lol this is so true , all feminist will be enraged by this picture because the truth hurts.
My girlfriend always knows when I’m at your site, Consios. =)
So, you think that female firefighters/policewomen/soldiers don’t work as hard as their male counterparts?
Many women are not allowed (by the employers) to take on more dangerous jobs because, surprise!, these employers think that women cannot do dangerous jobs.
You may not have heard about it yet, but in the UK, female drivers are no longer getting discount simply because they are female.
So, tell me again how this photo is the truth?
1. Do female firefighters/cops/soldiers get paid less than men for equal work?
2. No, it’s because more dangerous jobs tend to require more physical strength. Women are generally weaker than men. Also, men are more likely to apply for such jobs in the first place. The only way to resolve the disparity I can think of would be to lower the physical standards for women, but that would put both the women in question and their co-workers at risk.
3. So a subset of drivers in one country aren’t getting discounts anymore? And how did feminists lobby for that? And why does this website say women still pay less?
3. There’s still a massive bias in women’s favor in divorce court, which awards women custody at roughly the same amount they’ve done since the 70s. Which is odd, because we know that in a lot more families, the man is the primary caregiver or the parents both work. Kids have been returned, repeatedly, to abusive mothers, against the advice of child services.
4. Women receive lesser sentences and social stigma for child molestation, as well as any other crime. The conviction rate for men vs women is several times larger than the disparity in being black vs white.
5. Women have different working practices than men, and often work less.
1. Despite what some misguided feminists will tell you, the wage gap does not exist (generally) because women are paid a smaller salary than men. It is an emergent property of the fact that women are expected to abandon career and focus on family and the fact that jobs associated with women are historically the lowest-paying ones. Wonder why? Could it be… institutionalized discrimination? Heavens no, dare not speak that name!
2. Women are “generally” weaker than men, but that has absolutely no bearing on any individual. There are women out there who could kick my ass, and the fact that there are maybe, statistically fewer of them isn’t going to save me from a beating. Also: men being more likely to apply for dangerous/high-pay jobs is a fact that you’re willing to let sail off into the horizon, unexamined.
3. Blah blah these statistics are totally misleading and fail to take into account the fact that men ask for custody far less than women and that when men actually sue for custody they tend to get it blah blah MRA talking point blah. Yeah, feminists totally want children returned to abusive female caregivers because womennnnnnnnn haha r u fukn high.
4. Women receive lesser sentences for child molestation because men are assumed to always want sex, and male children who are violated by female caregivers are generally celebrated (by other men) for “scoring.” Weirdly, this is actually a facet of patriarchal standards for men, and not feminist activism. Women receive smaller sentences than men for a similar reason (women are infantilized and/or romaticized as caregivers). How exactly would you explain this discrepancy, since it’s been going on long before feminism came on the scene?
5. And the fact that women have different working practices than men, directly leading to women having less wealth than men, is something you’re willing to let pass completely without comment. Tell me, are women just “hard-wired” to like having less money, or are they jobs they are “hard-wired” to take simply worth less, objectively? Because those are your choices, unless you want to invoke systematic injustice (which you won’t, obviously). Why might women work less— could it be that women are expected to prioritize family over career? Nah.
Sir you are being mocked l m a o
1. >It is an emergent property of the fact that women are expected to abandon career and focus on family
And men are expected to abandon their families and personal life and and focus on making money more than women are. Plus, there’s been a lot of talk lately about women getting to “have it all”; a career and a personal life. One feminist even asserted that “having it all” is a euphemism for “all the opportunities men have”, which I find laughable, considering feminism’s studious lack of demands that women be represented in blue-collar jobs.
> and the fact that jobs associated with women are historically the lowest-paying ones.
Maybe jobs with more physical risk, which are associated with men, are the highest-paying ones.
2. You’re right. Men being generally stronger than women clearly has no bearing on whether they’re generally more likely to be hired for jobs requiring physical strength.
And please, show me the evidence that, say, oil rig workers or Alaskan Crab fishers have oodles of women applying who aren’t being hired because sexism.
3. Men generally ask for custody less because they’re already likely to be paying a shedload for the divorce, end up paying alimony in 90% of cases, and can’t afford to spend money on fighting for a low chance of getting primary custody, even when they do ask for it.
You could say it’s for the same reasons women tend to make different choices when it comes to their careers than men. Or have you not noticed the media cliche of the loving dad who got screwed over in the divorce?
4. You do realize the point of this post is to point out that feminism isn’t really doing anything about these issues despite claiming to be about gender equality? Not to blame it for these problems? If you’re having such trouble comprehending that, I kinda wonder about your comprehension of complex societal issues.
5. Well, thank goodness you’re debunking that argument I and the article I linked never made about women being “hard-wired” to do anything. You seem to be struggling with the concept, but women and men can make different choices, in aggregate, without institutionalized discrimination being the culprit. Especially when you seem to be studiously ignoring the negative effects of these things on men, even when they’re directly relevant.
Oh, and denying the agency and choices of women. Misogynist.
This was fun!
