IMO it is pathetic to think one should have to be treated different because of how many chromosome you where born with.




But a vast majority of people are born tow two chromosomes. Males have an X and Y Chromosome, and Females have two X chromsomes.



No idea what you folks are talking about, I have 46 chromosomes, 23 pairs to be exact


Thanks for pointing out how badly I worded that.

I meant two sex chromosomes, but I forgot to include that.

Anyway, men are more likely to get sidetracked and do dangerous maneuvers, while women are less skilled at driving, so those things sort of cancel each other out as far as paying the same for car insurance rates. Of course, that's more of an unsubstantiated generalization, but in the end I think it shouldn't come down to that.
I would say driving recklessly is the same as unskilled driving.

Well they're paid about 70% of what men are paid, their clothes are more expensive than men's for no apparent reason, there's all the other shit they have to deal with that men don't. I don't have a problem giving them a break on car insurance. Most of the aggressive drivers I see are male, very few female.

No. Insurance rates can be fairly decided based on statistics. It is not racism or sexism or any of that crap. If you're more likely to get into an accident, then you're more likely to get into an accident, and that costs money.

Men in general are more aggressive drivers than women, especially the young guys. Men also spend more time on the road, which means greater chances to get into an accident.

Just on Monday I watched a little old Japanese lady doing 40mph in a school zone, blowing stop signs left and right and somehow didn't kill anyone.

thats actually a good point.
a skilled drive will know when to push it, and when not to. 100 mph on a desert road at midnight is waaay different than 35 in a school zone.

We don't go and claim that we are being treated unfairly like feminists. We just suck it up and take it like MEN!

I bet if it was the other way around, you wouldn't be saying that. But because it's been an item for debate for a while now, we should just forget about it? Just let women be treated like shit and move on, huh?

I'm assuming you're quoting the wage gap that says a woman makes 78 cents for every dollar a man makes, if you're not then you should check wherever you got your statistic from.

The same study that says women make 78 cents for every dollar a man makes also says that white men make 82 cents for every dollar an Asian man makes, and that Asian women on average make more than a white man, though I forget exactly by how much, likely around 3 to 5 cents per dollar more.

Anyways, that study only compared income across the board without taking into consideration what job, how many hours worked, was the salary negotiated, etc.

The reason I'm saying it's a horse that's been beaten to death long ago is because I've basically been parroting arguments that other people have made over a year ago about that statistic. Heck I even wrote a paper for it in class.

gender equality right?

then make everything the same

more women need to join the police force, milltary, construction, sanitation, etc..

there's no such thing as " a man's job"

or maybe when it's some high paying job? like CEO?

Male models are not getting paid as high as the female models either-- so apply gender equality there too

and yes. make insurance premium the same too-- men under 25 are reckless eh? so women aren't?

i drive like a maniac sometimes -- even worse than the worst men out there

gender equality -- apply it for all areas/fields -- not when/where it's convenience for you!

learn self defense and at least learn how to change a flat tire/car battery while you are at it

if a man can do it so can a woman!! so get doing and stop acting like some damsel in distress --waiting for a man to do it for you
