    "In it, for example, there are ten clocks from various countries. Based on a nine to five day, they point to the time a woman should leave work according to the wage gap in the country.

    The US clock points to 3.20pm, highlighting the fact that women there earn only 79% of what men earn.
    To make the same point, men in the Girls' Lounge are charged $1 for a bar of chocolate, while women pay 79 cents."

    I suppose they resort to Feminism because they can't get the love they want, hence why so many fairly-attractive to attractive women don't see themselves as Feminists(?)

    I'm a feminist and I'm a healthy weight. Also, ugliness is subjective.

    There are plenty of healthy Feminists out there (albeit not mentally).

    There are also plenty of ugly and healthy Feminists - do you fall in that category?

    I still do get a good laugh out of the rubbish dished out by the BBC.

    I usually go on their website to check the Sport news.

    So, you call anyone who opposes what you think 'mentally ill'? Odd reaction, don't you think?

    Nah, I don't really have any problems with the attraction aspect of life.

    You have to agree that Feminists are becoming more and more insane...

    The silent majority (i.e you) are irrelevant at this point.

    Some are, some are alright. Plus, I wouldn't say they were mentally ill, I'd just say silly/annoying.

    'Silent', you haven't seen nothing yet.

    So the harpies yelling for equal pay (as opposed to equal earnings) aren't insane?

    No, the nut-job Feminists in general, they're extremely irrational.

    Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
