    I don't think you should be thinking of punching anyone in the face unless you genuinely fear for your safety and it constitutes a reasonable response to their behaviour (i.e. they are swinging at you). Feeling offended or harassed isn't quite the same thing. Otherwise, whether an attacker is male or female shouldn't make any difference, it doesn't to me.
    that's where I draw the line man, I don't take advice how or when to punch!

    I agree with this. I saw a woman slap a man in public during an apparent argument. The man did not overreact and people just kept on with their business. I wonder whether the reaction would have been the same if it was the man that slapped and humilated the woman.
    there's that video on YouTube about a bus driver punching a woman after she repeatedly harrased him, then everyone yelled "hey she's a female man!"
    she said she regrets f'in with him later in an interview smh

    It’s much kinder to the ego to blame women for their lack of romantic success, than to reflect on themselves and see that the reason they can’t get laid is how they treat people/lack of social skills/ anything other than a conspiracy that women have impossible standards. :toofunny:

    This is what I don't understand about the modern day gender equality/feminism movement. They want equality in some areas, but other areas they are happy for things to stay the same as long as they receive the benefit.

    Women want equal treatment in the workplace with their male colleagues. They want equal pay (FWIW the gender pay gap is a myth - same job for same hours get paid the same, otherwise it's illegal), they don't want to experience sexual harassment in the workplace (what about all the false accusations which ruin men's careers?), they want the same opportunities men have, they want equal opportunities for promotion (despite many of them taking time off for maternity leave).

    This is all fair enough. Except they don't want equality in dating. Men are still expected to:

    - ask the woman out and face possible rejection (women might give subtle hints, but under no circumstances will they ask the man out - that is "his job"
    - pay for the first date (and possible subsequent dates as well)
    - propose to the woman
    - treat her with meals/gifts
    - hold open the door for her
    - give up his coat if she's cold, so he can freeze (but never the other way around)
    - put the majority of effort into sex (this is centered around pleasing the woman - the man's enjoyment is always assumed)
    - be manly and dominant, never show any weak emotions, keep his problems bottled up because otherwise it's "unmanly"
    - household chores must now be shared. Women no longer have to do all the cooking and cleaning, it's shared equally between men, because otherwise it's gender discrimination/oppression. Despite the fact men are still seen as the primary breadwinner in the household and a man without a job is a virtual disaster.


    So back to the original question: Why do women want gender equality in the workplace (and indeed many other areas), but not in dating? I'm interested to hear to views of men, women and any feminists.
    The whole "feminist" movement and ideals in first world countries are just led by women who are brought up to believe they're disadvantaged. Its one of those petty movements you just laugh in the face of and move on, no point paying attention to such stupidity.

    It is a reoccurring theme in this thread though.

    Sadly a lot of guys on here seem to hate women just as much as the “men are trash” feminists hate men. Playing tennis with the blame for whatever the most topical grievances are, not actually trying to solve anything, just needing to be affirmed and agreed with.

    Yeah, women are allowed to do whatever they want without consequences.

    How do we solve the issue of double standards by women then? What actions should we take to show that some women have gone through this world as victims rather than culprits?

    I haven’t the foggiest. Since no one is directly injured by double standards in dating then what is there to be done? Can you punish someone for being a hypocrite?

    I’d chalk it down to a character flaw in that person, and move on to someone who shares the same values as you. Holding onto it and complaining about it is just building a wall around yourself and locking the bitterness in with it.

    Despite the tune of this thread, women tend to hold different opinions about things and we don’t all have an agenda programmed into our brains. Process the emotion of feeling hurt by the double standard someone put on you, then pick yourself up and associate yourself with more like minded people. Unless you want to make hypocrisy illegal idk what there is to proactively do about it.

    When was the last time you heard of a woman going to prison for falsely accusing a man of rape?

    I'm not sure how that's relevant. But a quick look on Google suggests it happens.

    Fair, but the issue is that sometimes it is difficult.

    A man meets a woman with a “character flaw”, she messes him up. When he realises, he moves on to another woman, who messes him up as well. By the time he reaches the “right” one, he has been psychologically and emotionally wrecked that he is unable to truly love the right one.

    It is no wonder, young cheerful men turn out to be heartless bast.ards when they grow up. They have been destroyed by several women over the years that they have nothing else to give.

    Few women go to jail for false accusations. Once a man is accused then he is guilty by default. If it comes out that she falsely accused him, she is patted on the back and the man has to pick up the pieces of his life.

    It's relevant if we're talking about women being allowed to do anything without consequences; which we are, incidentally.

    But a quick look on Google suggests it happens.
    I beg to differ.

    Maybe he should take the hint it's something he's doing, rather than something the women are doing?
