Men's Rights Reddit


An active group with very recent posts. Look at the subject headings.

Men's wages stagnant. Men make less today then in 1972 when adjusted for inflation.

'Factual Feminist': Gender Wage Gap is Based on Bogus Statistics

National Organization for Women Workshop Guidelines support women's equality, but prevent any discussion of the advantages of women and girls, or any discussion of male victims of domestic violence (including gay male victims).

Sound familiar? Any thoughts?

The two parties are the same

If you find yourself saying that, think for a moment about who THIS guy would appoint to the Supreme Court.

Because it's one of those days


I know

Quoting your own words back to you is totally manipulative. Imagine thinking you have anything to do with what you write.

It's a complete coincidence you keep invoking french toast and waffles as though it's a threat or form of retaliation.

US Ranked 23rd in Women’s Equality in Global Gender Gap Index

The World Economic Forum recently released its 2013 Global Gender Gap Report, which ranks the US 23rd in women’s equality. The Global Gender Gap Index is a framework for depicting gender-based disparities around the world and tracking progress on gender parity by using economic, political, education- and health-based criteria. Each country’s ranking is determined by measuring internal gender-based gaps in the ability to access resources and services. . . .

But according to the report , although the US is doing well in women’s education, the country is still struggling to make major progress in closing the gender gap in politics and economics. The US ranks 60th–below India, China, and Uganda–in terms of political empowerment, which takes into account indicators like the ratio of women to men in congress and ministerial positions. Currently, women only make up 18 percent of Congress, having risen only 1 percent since last year. US women also still struggle with a significant wage gap, making an average of 77 cents to every dollar that men make. African-American women make an average of 64 cents to a man’s dollar, and Latina women make 55 cents.

One factor negatively affecting women’s economic equality in the US is the lack of mandatory paid maternity leave and other supportive family services. The US is one of only three countries that has no mandated paid maternity leave. In contrast, Pakistan has 12 weeks of paid maternity leave and Canada has 50 weeks. In the US, federal law requires businesses to give 12 weeks of unpaid leave, but many women can’t afford to take time off unpaid.


Top 20 list. Look which country isn't there


You posted MIRT correspondence, just as Hassen did

only you think it justified because it was for a good cause, to attack me.

People should be aware that Hassen isn't the only current MIRT member to disclose posts from MIRT

Opiate69 in fact searched back months before his MIRT term began to hunt up and post this entry from my term on MIRT: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=4598543

Only it would appear to have served no purpose other than trying to stick it to someone he doesn't like. Note that a member particularly vehement in his attack of Hassen made a point of defending Opiate's disclosure of MIRT communication.

Now, while on MIRT I never posted an information from that forum in the general areas of DU, nor would I. However, I do not like the fact that one member is pilloried for the same actions for which another is protected. If people are concerned about MIRT disclosure in GD or the rest of the public areas of DU, that should apply equally to all members.

an unartful dodge

What Opiate posted was a post from MIRT and you defended it, despite the fact I made clear he had searched back months into the MIRT posts to produce it. Can you not comprehend it's the same thing? Of course not. More double talk will ensure because as usual all you care about is which complete stranger online you decide is part of the cool kids at the junior high lunch table and nothing at all to do with principal, politics, or anything of substance. You made a point of supporting Opiate's disclosure of a MIRT post while attacking HassenbinSober's, for no reason other than Opiate attacked someone you despise, me. Opiate did exactly what HassenbinSober did, and you defended him. That you attack one person for the same thing you defend another for shows exactly what you are. All of that was clear in the conversation between me and Opiate at the time, so you knew full well what you were supporting.

Unless they disclose it to attack someone you dislike

Then they must be defended at all costs. You made that very clear in the posts linked above.

Here is the post referencing the MIRT correspondence you asked about: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=4598543

Here's the deal

Complaining about it in the case of one person and supporting it when the disclosure is against someone he happens to dislike is hypocritical. Opiate69 did what HassenbinSober did, only he searched back months before his term began for no reason other than to stick it to someone he doesn't like, me, and Pintobean supported that because for him this board exists only to cultivate enmity with strangers. No, it does not specifically violate the rules, but as Skinner said, it prompts MIRT members to lose trust in one another. Why should Hassen bin Sober be pilloried for the same thing Opiate did without consequence? If it's bad in one case, it's bad in both. If it's okay in one case, it's okay in both. That Pintobean takes two different positions shows depending on who is dong the disclosing and who is the target shows exactly what he is.
