    Never married women get paid more than their male counter parts by 8% on average in 147 of the biggest 150 cities.

    Can you think of justifications for the top three? Just a blanket reason for why the first three may be the case.

    Men are probably more able and pressured to immediately enter the work force and education isn't as necessary. They also don't do as well in school, I believe. I think there was a big finding awhilr back that found teachers started favoring girls and teaching based on their best interests.

    Guys get in trouble more. We commit crime at a 9to1 rate. We are pressed to earn, our value is based on it. Crime is largely explained by the gini coefficient.. When people don't perceive their situation as imrpovable and their neighbor has more than them, they do shit. When they are trying to climb in status, they do shit. Men are trained to believe women want bad boys. This is an issue.

    Men suffer from much more mental health issues. We're told to not cry about shit. We keep it in. We're more aggressive. We're more introverted. Extraversion is integral to mental health.

    If you're a girl, you don't ride the bus. You can find a guy to take you somewhere. If you're a guy..

    Women are sought after. We need them. They don't need us. They have all guys running after them and they chose the best. Even if they're marginally attractive.

    Women largely get taken care of. Men are seen as predators and capable of handling themselves. Women are the innocent ones. We naturally want to help. For moral reasons and otherwise.

    Agreed with all of this. Gender stats always piss me off, both ways, because it's almost always explained through societal norms.

    I'd even add for the first, men are more likely to go to trade school.

    The lady who made this film toured Australia last week and lamented that Australia was the only country where her film has been nationally canned and protested against.

    I hate this hippy, leftest, social-rights-pleasing, save-the-trees-loving, "used to be a great country" country. Any room left for me in Cleveland, guys?

    I wouldn't gamble on the us either.

    I want to say we're stopping this stuff, but the universities are being over run by these activists. And they're the next crop of ceos.

    Study to expose bias in hiring process against women exposed bias against men.

    Names removed from resumes, then reconsidered with them. Men were 3.2% less likely to be chosen when their sex was included, women 2.9% more likely

    I'm sure these delusional findings were written by misogynistic, anti-semitic, racists and therefore we can just ignore this data as false.

    They have a frog handle, which is basically a swastika, so that means the study is invalid.

    Actually the administrators of the test advised people to stop taking the names off because it's detrimental to equality.

    Incredible definition of egalitarianism there

    To the universities credit, they ended up in the kids side. Dean refused to shake her hand at the ceremony.

    But still, fuck the University. And I'm not sure how mattress girl still has any supporters. Really scary how people can refuse to acknowledge reality for ideology

    Good for the dean. I didn't hear about that. I hope he gave the guy a big bear hug.
