To end sexism you need to end men or end women or both. It's human nature to be prejudice.

well, if your "males" were so great, why would they need to be carried down the stairs?

WOW... We finally entered a real 'something-to-do-with-gender' thread. It's really deep. But I can't completely agree. Women are women, men are men. They are different and they have their own worth in the society.

Lol, Punk. I can't decide if I hate or like you. You're strange. You fluctuate from saying absurd and painfully vulgar things to saying truthful things that actually make sense. You may be bipolar.

Real, how was that last part sexist?

Az, once again you’re a moron. The way you’re acting you would rather have a 120 pound man carrying down the stares than a 250 muscle building woman. Also, there are other jobs a fire-fighter does than carry men down the stares. For example: Drive the truck, aim the hose, ext.

Current example of Sexism in the Philippines:

For a man to be able to accuse his spouse of extra-marital relations, he must simply produce evidence that incriminates her, or places her within reasonable doubt that she is having an affair. For a woman, on the other hand, to accuse her spouse of extra-marital relations, she must personally witness and "catch" her husband in bed with another woman.

This is only one of many examples, not only here, but around the world. I agree with you that I find it annoying how some women may use their own "social weakness" as a means of getting out of responsibilities, but there's a deeper problem that must be addressed, nonetheless, which is the reason why we see certain feminist groups sprouting out all over the place.

I've never said that because once you're a firefighter you are capable since they grow through vigorous training. I'm talking about the average joe/jane.

Moron because I'm being realistic? Please, you don't see "250 muscle bulding woman" often do you?

I agree with Marco. Wome and men are just different. Neither is better than the other, but you need to recongize that both have their own strengths and weaknesses.

I'd like to agree with that, but given the sociopolitical standards of moder life, people just breeze by with the idea that "we're all equal and we have our own given weaknesses" without making it clear what it is, and then shit happens.

(sorry for the blunt words)

They make it a creed to get by with whatever mistakes they make and envision, with the naivete that is accompanied by it, a society that is "equal" when in fact it should be one of "equity".

Friends? My, my, you’re a bold one. Anyway I don’t like you. You’re vulgar and that disgusts me. You’re also sexists and although I find you smarter than the average person I still think you’re somewhat ignorant and narrow-minded. Still, you’re welcome to your opinions. I may think they’re narrow-minded but I won’t fault you for them. Nevertheless, you’re vulgarity needs to stop, at least if you ever want my respect.



Anyway, I find the theory that men and women are equal in that we have the same amount of strengths an weaknesses doubtful. If you generalize the groups and tally up the advantages, men win in strength, women in intellect, men in war-time mentality, women in parenting, men in discipline, ext-ext, one is bound to come out with the most tallies. Just being realistic.

However, I think it’s up to the individual. I’m smarter than most girls but am a utter scrawny nerd boy. Most chicks could kick me across the floor. But I’ve yet to find a girl my age that can outsmart me. Call me arrogant but I’m more educated and intellectual than all my peers. (Who are stupid, regardless of sex.)

I also think its pathetic that people have to constantly try and make themselves feel good by continuously comparing the sexes. It’s not a bloody competition. Generally and biologically we’re both completely useless without the other. Men and women have natural attributes that complement each other, but not all members of a body function properly. If every man played his role as a man, and woman her role as a woman, then we’d live in a utopian civilization without individuality or sexism. But that never has and never will happen.

well, that vulgarity you so despise just happens to make up a good chunk of my personal charm, so I'm afraid we are at a crossroads

Also I’m pretty sure there is already a thread on sexism.

Teenage sexism, yes.

None the less you’re wrong.

No he's not.

Sexism remains a very large problem to this day.

Correction STUPIDITY is the problem.

Women are constantly discriminated against. Under paid for their work,

Are they now? Maybe it's choices and education levels... competancy. hmm

cheated by mechanics,

I have never been cheated by a mechanic, because i learned about cars so they CAN"T cheat me. I over came my ignorance.

and various other things.
like what?

It’s not as bad as it once was but it is still here.

Yeah stupidy is terrible isn't it?


However, men get it too these days. In my opinion we get shafted more than women. None the less to say that women are not the victims of it is ignorant and false. It happens all the time. What you said to that girl was uncalled for, and you’re a macho prick. At least from what I’ve heard of you. The truth is men are physically more apt them females. So, this being said you do have a natural advantage and it would be kind of you to not be entirely aggressive in certain activities. Especially if a girl requests you to lay off. You don’t have to hurt the lasses.

You're being sexist, those women deserved what he said to them. had they been a man who said that wouldn't you have done the same thing?


This being said women are (biologically speaking) smarter than men. So should they take it easy on us in academic competition?

Whatever the case this is what I have to say:


You’ve been called sexists because you are sexist.


I am not sexist. I think everyone is equal no matter what. We all have the same opportunities, i'm not letting my future change just becuase i have to pee sitting down.
I've been in "male dominated worlds" IE i was a construction worker.
I did the same job every guy out there did. You know why? THAT"S WHAT I WAS PAID FOR.
I wasn't paid to say, oh i can't lift that, it's too heavy, life it for me.
I was paid to haul heavy ass lumber all over the fucking houses.
so i did my job.
I let my ability speak for me rather than my pussy.

I put men and women as equals, I don't look down on women I respect them, so nothing pisses me off more than extreme feminists and manhaters, but that goes for guys who look down on women as well, I have 0 respect for people like that and that's all I have to say.
