Letter to a conservative.
Here are 5 ways that society is sexist against men, in favor of women.
Men get longer prison sentences than women for the same crime Nowhere it is written in law that men are to receive harsher sentences than women but the fact is they do. And not just a little bit longer. It appears that men are sentenced for the most crime.
Going to jail apparently has only a tenuous relationship with committing a crime, as long as you are a woman. Men are punished far more harshly than women, and women are likely to escape being punished at all.
Boys are more likely to be on psychotropic medications than girls By the time he reaches high school, a little boy growing up in America has a 1 in 5 chance of being prescribed powerful Schedule II psychotropic medications to calm his behavior so he will sit quietly and obediently in female-dominated classrooms.
Boys are diagnosed with ADHD at twice the rate of girls, and while there is no law written anywhere that says boys are to be drugged into submission, that is in fact what is happening. Girls are largely exempt from pharmaceutical behavioural controls and boys are not.
Far more men than women die on the job Again, there is no employment law anywhere that says women are to work in cushy, air-conditioned offices and men are to work in dangerous mines, factories and roadways but the reality is that very few women work in any occupation that will lead to death, while lots of men do.
When you hear media feminists calling for quotas in boardrooms or in tech giants like Google or Amazon, ask yourself why these same women are not calling for quotas on heavy equipment or oil rigs?
Why is it that women seem to want equality for the sweet jobs, yet have no problem watching the bodies of men crushed, trampled, burned or pulverized pile up on the really dangerous, crappy jobs? Women are largely protected from workplace fatalities and men are not.
Most of the homeless are men There is no law anywhere that states women are to be protected from homelessness and given social resources to prevent that from occurring, and yet, that is exactly what happens.
Most of the homeless in the US are menbut most of the homeless women have children with them, and are thus able to avail themselves of social services not available to homeless men. The end result is that women are protected from the full effects of homelessness and are afforded special protections to ensure it does not happen, and men are not.
Technically, men are legally protected from intimate partner violence, but in practice, men are likely to be the person arrested, even when they are the seriously injured party.
This is not codified in law, but seems to be the law of the land. That is not the case for men. See herehereand here for the evidence. It is a truism of feminism that the simple act of being male confers a privilege that is not available to women, but neither legal nor social examination of male privilege bears this out.
Women have more legal rights than men and men are discriminated against in some very important ways that are not codified in law but might as well be.
Gender really does not tell you anything meaningful at all about what forms of oppression or discrimination any given individual is likely to face. A homeless male war vet up on a felony charge of assault is both legally and socially at a huge disadvantage over someone like me.This statement also brings about the argument of when an unborn fetus attains the qualities and equality of a born child.
It also brings about the question of whether a fetus should be treated with equal rights as an already born child (Ginsberg, Theodore, Margaret, Caroline, & Robert ). Which of the following statement is incorrect: a.
labeled as abnormal by the society in which the individual lives Defense against anxiety b) Ways of convincing others of one’s rightness c) Escape reactions d) Conscious self-deception e) None of these.
Many of us who appreciate libertarian-oriented ideals are proponents of the "non-aggression principle," which, to summarize, states that respect for individual freedom is the paramount value of any society that seeks to sustain itself peacefully and indefinitely.
disorder is characterized by discrete episodes of aggression and destructiveness correct statement about suicide: a. People who talk about their death wishes rarely kill themselves b.
Widowers have a higher incidence knowing his or her role in society; (6) intimacy. The statement 'aggression is conditioned by society' is false. While aggression comes in many different forms, all stem from society and in particular, the basic unit of society that is the family.
If it can be proven that the family unit is fragmenting, then correspondingly, society, which is based upon the building blocks of the family unit, will be seen to be in . Following the rejection of group selection, it was common for authors to treat the concept of genes as replicators as an argument against group selection all by itself.
This is wrong, and very few informed evolutionists would make the mistake today.
