  • U.N. Report: Women May Need ‘Different Treatment’ to Achieve Economic Equality

    So apparently the U.N. is backing the idea that in order for women to achieve economic equality with men then men and women need to be treated differently.

    So there you have it. The U.N. are declaring that in order to get equal outcome then the genders need to be treated differently. Of course this means in reality that women get shoved into positions where they don't want to be and men get held back from achieving what they want to achieve.

    What do others think of this?

    From all the affirmative action proposals and laws it has long been clear that the Egalitarians do not seek mere equality under the law but to engineer society massively to suit their vision.

    Now if any society (other than my own) wants to handicap itself by disadvantaging capable men, who am I to stand in its way?

      Certainly looks like it.

      true other countries who don't adhere to this nonsense will be better off.

          Believe it or not but it was it was middleclass women who started second wave feminism. They were bored with nothing to do since inventions created by men made housework so easy to do in little time that they met up in coffee shops to discuss these things.

            And the first wave of meninism should be to sit on our butts, drinking beer and making the women earn the money at the office. And then complain about how rough we have it at home.

              We could stay at home all the while complaining about it and how we are not allowed to work.
