8. EXACTLY! The BEST a woman faces is the WORST a man faces --
I.e., w.r.t. the burdens carried outside one's profession, the WORST most men have faced is that either they're single w/o kids so have few outside responsibilities or they have a family and actually do carry their fair 50% share of outside responsibilities.

That is the BEST women can hope for; and the vast majority who have spouses or families STILL carry more than their fair share of outside responsibilities.

The extra responsibilities add up, in both time, energy, and levels of stress. (Not to mention that women STILL face considerable discrimination within their jobs/professions, in addition to the extra responsibilities elsewhere. AND not to mention they're STILL paid less for the same work.)
