Can the 'danger' factor become obselete in this arguement?? I'm intrigued as to what this 'danger' is that seems to face the apparent vast majority men on a daily basis. Burning themselves with hot coffee?? Trapping their tie in the photocopier??

Who said every women wanted a little puke machine (aka a baby, go figure whather or not I want one lol)? Furthermore, men can take paternity leave.

If a women and a man are both doing exactly the same job for the same company with the same education, both deserve the same pay.

Nobody said every woman did, hence the reasons the ones that don't actually earn more than men. Fair? I think not.

lol, that pathetic (10 days?) is hardly comparable to maternity leave.

You could but that doesn't mean you will. The fact of the matter is women are far less likely to work 60 hour weeks, and are far more likely to succomb to the pressure of not seeing their children every day than men are. Your capacity to work is the same I agree, but the likely hood of a woman capitalising on this potential is far lower.
Because the norm/expectation is that women have children, and after that they go back to part-time work. If they continue doing full-time, they're looked upon as bad mothers/weird. (I know quite a few people this has happened to).

Everyone should have equal pay regardless of gender. It's immoral and unethical and inhumane. It's like sending derogatory feelings to women saying they are worth less than men and inferior. When all the different is is some hormones and different secondary sexual characteristics.

I don't know any women who haven't chosen of their own accord to cut their careers short to look after their children. They knew the deal when they chose to have children as well. It's nothing to do with norm/expectations at all, nobody is forcing them to stay at home and they can just as easily get care for the children. Even if this were the case I don't know what course of action anyone could take to combat it, it is a preferable situation that a man works 60 hours and the women none-30, than both working 40 hours each.

ugh what a terrible response

the main reasons, to summarise, are that men on the whole work more difficult and high paid jobs.

if we are comparing men and women doing the same job, women tend to have more family commitments (less capeable of overtime and commitment to the company's cause) and also tend to disappear for months to have children - comapnies simply cannot afford to pay women the same!! (personally i think that the governmetn should pay maternity leave, but even then companies will waste money in training and have to go through the hassle of finding a temporary replacement).
