Slippery Myth: Women in America make less money than men do for the same work. There is a wage gap. We need to do something about this.
Ha... well the first sentence would be true enough without that "for the same work" little add-on. The problem occurs that when the "same work" demon slipped into the argument.. you falsified evidence. Nevertheless there is no men favored wage gap and we certainly don't need to do anything about it. When you take the entire picture, not just a piece of the jigsaw puzzle, and look at the factors involved you will find for the "same work" and the "same situation" that it is actually WOMEN who are paid more than men.
Now why is then that you hear this statistic bantered around? Well it's simply because men have more hours/years of experience working, and thus earn more money. Yes... Men work more than Women as a whole, so they get paid more... and if men didn't get paid more, guess what group would have blatant under compensation, and even so they have a legit argument. It's a twisted way to look at the facts which paints women as unjustly under compensated.
If we also look at disposable income, the amount of money spent on items for women is approaching the ratio of 7:1 versus men. So really who is getting the benefit of the money? Who really is getting more money thrown their way, despite not working as much, or earning enough experience, women ultimately end of with way more personal items bought for them, so much more in fact, that you have no leg to stand on and relying on flawed logic like this their downfall.
Blatant Bullshit Myth: Women are the biggest victims of violence.
Not even close to the truth, not by a damn sight, not in any place on earth, not in any time in history, not now and probably not ever unless they keep subverting us. Men are the primary targets of all violence, including rape, by such a large margin that you cannot even begin to imagine why they thought they could say this and get traction with it. This is like Barack Obama saying something like "America is the weakest, most under developed, and least wealthy nation in the universe, even our arch nemesis, Tuvalu, has a larger and more fearsome military force than we do. Even a small nation, like the vatican, has warlocks that manipulate the fabric of existence." That is how blatant and how asinine this is.
Staggeringly Hypocritical Myth: Men are deadbeat dads.
When it is women who are required to pay child support, they are 50% less likely to do so. Furthermore, the 50% who don't pay are somewhere around 25% as likely to be forced to pay by our legal system, or incarcerated by our legal system... for the exact same crime a man is guilty of, ran down the block by the K-9 unit, bit in the ass with lockjaw. So the reality is tit-for-tat, when they are put into the position of owing child support, women are twice as much more likely to not pay.
On a personal note about our legal system and child support, I have a few male friends who have been taken to the cleaners in their divorce. The most recent one involved a long-time friend who has an 8 year old son. He makes around 26,000 per year being forced to pay 500 per month to his ex who makes around 50,000 per year... at first they had joint custody... but somehow his ex-wife got them to make my friend owe her 6 months of child support during a period of time they were still living together, effective immediately after they divorced. She also got control of all the joint bank accounts.
So my friend ended up taking a second job for the sole purpose of paying off this insane court ordered legacy debt to a bitch who had all his money. She then later went back to court and got shared custody on the basis that my friend was "working too much" to be able to have joint custody, and she got it. Tell me... could this situation have worked in the reverse? Could my friend have ended up with primary shared custody, and child support every month?
This is assuming the ex-wife was not a druggie, a prostitute, a criminal, a child molester, an abuser, etc. My friend cannot even afford an extra luxury like a tin of altoids. He has to sell his car, had to move into a fucking shanty, had to work another job, and now he is denied even seeing his son except when he gets say-so. Also I would like to mention this guy is a combat veteran.
Yes. You can find discrimination of women, you can find discrimination of men. What you can also find is a myriad of examples of our current system propping women up, and having sugar daddy government replace men as providers. What you can't find is many examples of the same system doing likewise for men.
