    Anyone that pretends there are any significant gender inequalities are just ***** tbh.

    Tell that to the the fact that America has never had a female president, and the fact that the UK has only had one female prime minister. Tell that to the 1 in 9 female from the developing world that will get married before the age of fifteen.

    The UN says that the gender pay gap won't close for another 70 years. Female genital mutilation is still practiced in 29 countries. In the US a woman is raped every six seconds.

    Anyone that pretends that there aren't significant gender inequalities is an ignorant individual that is living in the delusion that sexism not being like it was centuries ago means that sexism doesn't exist anymore.

    Lol

    Why do you think more men commit suidice than women? If life was so difficult and unrewarding and unfair to women wouldn't the rates for them be far higher than men! Men have more pressue. More expectations, relied upon. If a woman looks good she can get through life easily, isn't the same for men at all

    there are a million other variables, such as brain chemistry, willingness to ask for help, willingness to see a councilor etc etc.

    Meninism is actually more of a satirical reflection of what feminism has become these days.

    You just made up a couple facts, then backed it up by calling me ignorant. Nice one.

    The "no female x,y,z" is because there used to be some sexism so obviously there would be none, but just because sex is no longer a factor, doesn't mean suddenly all prime ministers and presidents should be women to make up for it ffs lol. The best candidate will always be chosen/ voted for. You could check who runs for them and you'd be able to tell that typically more men run the country.

    The "gender pay gap" has to do with types of jobs, not employees saying "ah she's a women so I won't give her a job". If you look into a few of the leading Uni courses to do, most STEM ones get 90% male applicants and end up have 80% male in the course. A smart women is more searched for than a smart guy, because guys with high grades in Further Maths A level for example are bloody everywhere, but it's rare to find a girl that has done that too. If you genuinely think that's because schools don't teach girls fairly then you're just stupid here. My school was 55% guys, 45% girls in Y11. Then, as you had to get 5B's at GCSE to get into our Sixth Form, it filtered out the worst. It's now 70% guys and 30% girls. My Further Maths A2 class - 11 guys no girls. Is this where you claim this is schools being sexist? Because it's blatantly not.

    Feminists really do annoy me lol, you know as a fact if two people applied for a job, had the exact same credentials, and one was a women and one was a man, the decision would have nothing to do with their sex. Especially in Europe, sexism literally doesn't exist at all.

    Just because girls are better/ worse at different things to men, doesn't mean they're discriminated against.

    its always been about women and how they arent equal as men. meninism should be taken as seriously as feminism because men have a voice too. just because they dont shout it out loud doesnt mean they havent had problems regarding employment, court cases etc due to being a man.

    It seems a response to the worst lunacy of third wave.
    I think their biggest challenge is not getting down in the gutter with many gender feminists but fighting them with stats and truth.
    Getting into a personal "Youre a fedora wearing neckbeard" - " really? Well you're a hairy feminazi" does them no favours.

    Actually, the gender wage gap isn't about how there are no girls in your further maths class and how only 10% of stem courses are women (lmao, nice try though), the wage gap is about women in the same job as men with the same credentials earning less.

    And what about the forced marriages that happen around the world, and the rape, and the trafficking of young girls into prostitution? I don't understand how you can claim that there is no sexism when things like this happen.

    No person, that is as good as another person in every way, will ever be earning less is modern environments, regardless of anything including gender. Exactly my point, very few women in STEM courses.

    Men get raped too. Animals get raped by other animals, like, you do realise rape isn't a movement against women right? A women can get a guy jailed for saying he raped her, even with no proof, but if a guy claimed he was raped by a girl people will just laugh at him. Forced marriages are part of religions, so unless you wish to get rid of all religions in the world and destroy people's fate, stop calling the world sexist.

    There's no sexism in first world countries anymore, there just isn't. The only sexism in the world comes from extremists or just very religious people. Which is hardly the whole world.

    I have never met someone I'd regard as sexist, and I've met a ton of people. I've never first hand seen an act of sexism, and I've seen a lot of things. It's all just made up for attention in countries like the UK etc.

    Btw, rape is caused from a strong thought of wanting sex. Notice how there is no mention of gender there. Anyone can rape anyone, the only reason women are more commonly victims of this is because men are known for having much more sexual thoughts + the vast majority of men are straight. That it literally the only reason. Therefore, in this example, women are just unlucky, in the same way they're unlucky that they have to give birth to a child if they want one, but I think you'd agree that the human body, or nature, is not sexist.

    You made some valid points in your first post, about the oppression of women in the middle East, that I completely agree with.

    However. This gender pay gap in western society is such a joke. It is based on completely cherry picked statistics.

    I can't believe how often I have to say this. But there is no employer in this country, that pays a man and a woman who are doing exactly the same job for exactly the same amount of time, a different salary. It just does not happen.

    So where does the gender pay gap come from Yiu ask.

    Well, let's take healthcare as an example. feminists will tell you that "on average", women working in healthcare are paid 30% less than men. What they won't do however, is account for say the fact that there are more men in higher paying specialisations such as cardiology and neurology, and more women in lower paying jobs such as midwifery and nursing.

    Further to this. You often have reports country wide. But again, these take no account of women who CHOOSE to stay at home and look after the kids whilst the man is out working his *******s off doing 14 hour days providing for his family.

    lastly if your gunna talk, "only one female prime minister", why don't we talk about how 99% of refuse workers are men. Don't ever see feminists complaining about that now do you...
