There are three simple stats that show life is unfair to us men:
- Men die earlier
- Far more men than women commit suicide
- Far more men than women are in jail.
If we then used the feminist assertions that we must enforce equality, then we would need to:
- Spend far more on men’s health than women’s so that men lived longer
- We would need to make men’s lives more worthwhile living (and thus women’s less worthwhile)
- We’d have to have far more draconian penalties for any women breaking the law.
So, why are these not seen as “fair” whereas the all pervasive “equality” for women is? The reason is that women demand “fairness” where it provides them benefits, and quietly ignore precisely the same arguments when it would overwhelmingly harm them. So, e.g. we hear demands for positive discrimination for women in the work place … but no demands for “positive discrimination” for women in prison places.
Discrimination against males is far subtler than that against females
However, what I want to discuss today, is a way in which society discriminates against males that no one seems to discuss. The argument is as follows:
In any society, we must have rules. As the number of prison places show, it is overwhelmingly men that break the rules and it is right that those that break the rules go to prison. However, let us suppose that a parliament dominated by women decide that they personally would prefer much stricter rules than most reasonable people in society. It therefore follows that because men break the rules more often … that it will be men who are overwhelmingly penalised by having rules much harsher than necessary.
Thus the “nanny state” or the “cotton wool state” overwhelmingly restricts men far more than it restricts women. As such it is extreme sexism, in that it is men that suffer overwhelmingly from an excessive state.
Similarly, it is widely known that men are the “less refined” sex in terms of social etiquette. Thus, when society or organisations within society create meaningless Politically Correct rules, it is men who find themselves overwhelmingly caught and repressed by those Politically Correct rules. As such, these extremist social prescriptions are overtly sexist, only mildly affecting women, but having a massive affect on men.
The difference of course, is that whilst women are highly effective and manipulating the rules of society to benefit their sex … men just grumble and die earlier.
