    lol.ok
    Is that all you've got? :lol:

    Money = not a part of him
    Looks = a physical part of her

    If you care about money so much, why don't you get a sugar daddy? Clearly you're not bothered about men, you just want their money.

    You're a gold digger. Can't you earn and provide for yourself? :lol:

    Just get him to transfer his weekly wages to your bank account while he doesn't get to see you. It makes no difference to a gold digger. In fact, it's actually better for a gold digger if that happens, because she doesn't have to waste her time on him.

    I dont think you realize just how much of a little b!+ch youre being.
    All a woman has to do is open her legs & charge for someone to enter.
    Youd get more action asking her what time opening hours are.

    Yes I know that women can charge for sex and get high demand. Straight males simply can't do that. Even the hottest straight male sex workers will earn a fraction of what an average looking woman can earn charging for sex. That is the sad reality of the situation men face.

    How am I being a b!+ch though?

    This is BS
    Youre a Sugar daddy because you think that looks only apply to the appearance of a woman but woman like to look at me too. If a woman has chosen you, youre b!+ching because theyre after your money. That says alot but everyone has a level of interest, regardless of gender.
    Non of this has anything to do with the work place, lol because the work place is why they have sexual harassment & woman to hide behind [email protected]+s who are now excepted for sexual harassment & police arent prepared to do anything about it, while woman are hiding because of inferiority in a male dominated leading role.

    Basically the topic is about why isnt there enough Lesbians going out to dinner, so I can watch them.

    Snowman77, your point is ambiguous. I completely agree with this idea of inequality within dating, because I can see it's becoming harder for men to know the boundaries, as a result of the blurred lines caused by the media etc. HOWEVER I think that this inequality is caused by things being taken out of context, for example on a date, a man should open a door for a woman, yes he should, but this is common manors taught to someone from a young age, whether you're male or female. I am a female, I open doors etc for women, men, ANYONE. But again, I do see your point, with emphasis on latest dating shows such as 'Celebs Go Dating', where the male is EXPECTED to pay the bill, this is completely wrong, I think you should always split, then if this goes further than one date, I would offer to pay or they would, then on the third date, the other pays.
    Furthermore, there unfortunately is a gender pay gap, yes this is illegal but it stills happens. Here are some examples:

    Some girl said that she needs a man to be earning a good salary (clearly a gold digger, why can't she earn her own money and pay for her own stuff?).

    Then I said it's unfair on straight men that they can't charge for sex because there's virtually no demand for it. Women always have that option of selling their body for sex (even fat ugly women can do that). Men simply don't have that option, even if they're good looking. Their only option is to sell sex to the gay market, which doesn't work if you're not gay of course.

    No it wasn't my dream job. But it would be nice to have that option. Unfortunately, demand for straight male sex workers is close to zero.

    I think that this has been one of the big questions posed by many people and everyone is going to have a different answer. That's okay because we're all different including women (and men).

    I think that I'm a feminist but what mostly angers me is that there are people out there who think feminism is trying to promote women to become superior to men: that is simply not the case. Feminism is defined by movements and ideologies that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve equal political, economic, cultural, personal, and social rights for women. The sad truth is that there are so many cases where women are under represented and although this gap has been diminishing there is still a lot to go. I am no saying that men are not discriminated against, sexually harassed... However, there is actually evidence to show that this prominently happens more to women that men mainly because of the stigma associated with social view of some people who think that women should be equal to men. THIS can be clearly seen in the entertainment industry like acting and football. It is proven that lead female roles USUALLY receive less than male (of course there have been recent movements where men have given up their salary...).

    And yes, there are some women who will use this 'inequality' to gain advantages but that is a minority and they ARE in the wrong, the same way there are people who think that racism only applies to black people but not white. So of course we should not promote this sort of use for personal gain.

    Just wanted to add a quick note about dating. Firstly there are different women, some who are happy to fill in the 'typical woman's role' whilst others seek to be equal. Personally I think that anyone (including) males should have a free say in what they want and one ideology shouldn't apply to all because we are all unique.

    Similarly, I think that in relationships, men can sometimes be discriminated against when women expect them to be all chivalrous; just like women want equality in some matters, men should have equality in relationships and be able to break up with a woman in the same way a woman can. But then again, I think it depends on the couple and what feels right for them.

    You have written some points that I agree with, but I have some comments.

    To the point on the entertainment industry, I think this story or issue is not as straightforward as it has been laid out to be. A female “lead” in a role is very relative compared to the male “lead”. For example, having a male top star with 2 Oscar Awards as a lead with a woman with no Oscars as the female lead, why should both people be paid the same? The problem is that they may be doing the same job, but from two different perspectives.

    Why do you think it’s unfair on men that thousands of women and girls across the globe are exploited for sex?

    Why is it wrong for a woman to want her partner to be a high earner?

    If I may come in here. I think sexual exploitation are based on two tiers.

    Tier 1 is acknowledgment and consent to engage in sexual activity through pornography or prostitution. This is not the man’s fault, but men have been blasted for this.

    Tier 2 is lack of consent in engaging in sexual activity. This is called rape and some men are guilty of this issue. However, ALL men are not responsible for the actions of these rapists or thugs.

    To your second point, I think it is wrong because some women dismiss the full package of men and focus on the money element.

    No sane woman would be with a man who wants a woman that is just sexy. They would expect the man to want them for than just their body, hence why some men would expect the woman to want them for more than just money.
