FantACEtic writes a short but sweet introduction to antinatalism.
Ravishly discusses studies which have tried to establish what percentage of men would rape if they could get away with it.
In the 1980s, UCLA psychologist Neil Malamuth surveyed men’s attitudes toward sexual violence and found that 50% of men would force sex on a woman if they thought they could get away with it. There was a similar discrepancy between the men who admitted they would force sex and those who would “rape” if they could get away with it, which, again, was a “mere” 15%. (From an international perspective, a 2013 sweeping survey of over 10,000 men from six countries conducted by the UN found that most men who raped simply believed they had the right to take control of women’s bodies.)…
Take another recent survey of teenage girls, which showed that they believe sexual coercion—and even violence—is normal. Born with the foundational notion of men’s inability to control their sex drives—harassment and coercion, they believe, is just part of the female landscape.
From Something Awful: Yes, Antifreeze is the Moral Equivalent of Freeze
The chemical at the diabolical root of antifreeze is ethylene-glycol. One company accounts for over 75% of the production of ethylene-glycol in the United States: American Glycorp. The sixteenth largest shareholder of American Glycorp? None other than George Soros. Funny how that happens. It’s almost like somebody has a pro-freezing agenda.
Yes, the cold wants to freeze our engines, but antifreeze is not the hot. It isn’t the hot at all. It’s also the cold. It is time for our nation to do what is necessary for freedom and outlaw antifreeze. Only by making antifreeze criminal can we actually address freeze’s underlying causes: safe spaces on college campuses and Black Lives Matters not being worried about gang violence in Chicago.
i-was-a-naive-antifeminist lists 13 reasons why women are paid less than men on the workplace.
5. The devaluing of work associated with women
People view men’s and women’s work differently. There is a tipping point at which men flee an occupation, and in the absence of perfect information, workers take the percentage of female employees as a proxy for an occupation’s prestige. When teaching in the US became female-dominated, the pay decreased. When programming in the US became male-dominated, the pay increased. Doctors save lives and go to school for many years no matter where you are in the world. But in Russia, they are paid the same wages as secretaries, making about 12,000 US dollars a year. A study of Census data from 1950 to 2000 found that when women enter an occupation in large numbers, that job begins to pay less, even after controlling for a range of factors like skill, race, geography, and occupational crowding.
Men’s low-wage jobs demand far less in terms of skill, education, and certifications than women’s low-wage jobs, yet the male-dominated ones usually have higher hourly pay. Janitors, who are mostly men, make 22 percent more money than maids and housecleaners, who are mostly women, despite the jobs requiring identical skills.
