    Have you considered:

    1. Piggybacking can be easier
    2. Some people don' t really want to work/enjoy working
    3. Potential to earn more money depending on who you're piggybacking off

    You've not thought it through enough, keep the social justice agenda for the moment until you've fully explored the issue.
    You say social justice like its a bad thing... And the op was asking why women are gold diggers so I came up with some suggestions as to why that is, not saying they are the only reasons but those are the ones I could find so maybe you should think it through and realise that there are multiple causes. Honestly, how people don't realise that social inequality is often a source of social discontent is beyond me.

    If you live in a society where it's hard for women to progress in any kind of high paying career and that makes out like the only good thing about them is their bodies then this is probably the best option they have. If you don't then your experiences have been unrepresentative of what women are like as a whole because given the chance and encouragement I'm sure most women would prefer to be successful in their own career rather than piggy backing of a mans.
    Not true if women made different life choices they can be at the top, women can't actually have it all if you want to be at the top you have to work 100% towards that

    Well the only reason I can think off to piggyback off someone else's success is because you don't have the opportunity to achieve your own success (I'm sorry if this is too far fetched for you)
    Another reason is it is easier and some people are lazy

    I'm in no way denying that there are women who use men for money and that there are men who use women for sex. But to in any way think it is the majority or even a high number I think is beyond ridiculous.

    redpill is a subreddit on Reddit full of men who hate women always spouting ********. Not sure what the female equivalent is, not found it ...yet.

    IMO the majority of women do use men for money. If I worked in the city and earned 1 million a year, I wouldn't get as much attention from girls if worked doing a job with a mediocre salary. Maybe if you weren't so biased you would be more open-minded with other people's replies.

    That's quite hilarious coming from you.

    And honestly, stop quoting me and messaging me to "stop attention seeking". You do not know me, you do not have to read my comments and no one is forcing you to engage with me. So maybe stop acting like a little victim?

    Okay great, ta.

    Yes but it's a lot harder to do that in the face of discrimination which is why in more sexist societies more women are gold diggers because they are being discouraged from achieving their own success (and don't say that there are no societies in which sexism exists because that's simply untrue). This may be as well as things like laziness.

    I agree, there can be more than one reason. Although tbh I think the op is probably just meeting the wrong kinda girls.

    The amount of posts you have written is displayed right next to your name, I didn't exactly look far... Your intelligence just makes me feel sorry for you. Sorry, but "flattered"? You're the only one acting like a princess by again saying such moronic statements here, ergo proving my point in you attempting to seek attention. Please do not reply to me again.

    Women don't use men for money. A woman can only use a man for money if he lets her use him for money.

    Nobody says a man has to spend tons of money on a woman in order to date or hook up with her. If a woman is using a guy for money, he's just as much to blame as her.

    I know an excellent doctor who specialises in removing sticks from people's rectums if you're interested? It must be quite uncomfortable for you.
