Do You Think Men in the West have it Worse than Women?
If yes in what ways? If no in what ways?
I don't have in my life a distinction in the sense of place in society. I get that in some ways and places there is a distinction but just not around me.
In my home I have it worse in some ways. But that is because my wife is tiny and I am big not because of gender.
Women are over 60% of college students and graduates, due to preferences in both admissions and scholarships.
Men are actively discriminated against in family courts with regard to custody and visitation of children. The Title 9 reinterpretation to include rape tribunals absolutely discriminates against men - no right to legal counsel, no right to cross-examine a witness, little or no ability to show evidence it was consensual like text history of later dates, the same people gathering evidence are the women's studies departments that assume he is guilty and judge him. In one irrational case, a man was investigated because he looked like a girl's rapist - the rapist was 1000 miles away. In another, the boy and girl had consensual relationship but another girl reported a hickey, so he was investigated for rape.
Men are discriminated against with allegations of sexual harassment, where he has little to no recourse, and he can lose his job for her recounting a consensual flirty word play or conversations when lovers but he can't do the opposite.
There are no competent, intelligent, decent and successful white men on TV. He's either good and nice but stupid, good and nice but bumbling, competent and successful but bad. But no one complains about only negative presentations of white guys on TV.
White guys are blamed for everything in society, slapped with a collective guilt for things that happened 6 generations ago, or that slavery was a world-wide institution at that time, with 10x more black slaves held by blacks and Arabs than held by whites. Yet the same liberals pushing the guilt ignore the 600,000 white men who died to end slavery for blacks and eliminated it for most of the world. Nor do they get credit for electricity, antibiotics, women's rights.
On average women full-time workers make only 79 cents for every dollar earned by men, a gender wage gap of 21 percent. Women, on average, earn less than men in virtually every single occupation.
Secondly the incidence of rape, domestic violence, and overall fear of being victimized in general is probably higher among women.
Very few men get nervous leaving an office building late in the evening as they enter into a parking structure or worry about having a drink tampered with while out in nightclub/partying.
There also remains various "double standards" in place. A divorced father who gives full custody of his children to is ex-wife is not looked down upon as much as if a mother gave full custody to her ex-husband. Sexually promiscuous women are looked down upon by both men and women. While sexually promiscuous men are mainly looked down on by women.
Having said that a "pro-life" would be father can't compel a woman to go full term and have his child against her will.

Things Are The SameTo all feminists and neofeminists out there, the status of women have improved gradually over 4 decades since the advent of feminism in the late 1960s. Feminists such as Betty Friedan, THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE, and Gloria Steinem made women that there were roles outside...

Is it now valid to claim "women are the worse drivers on the road."Following drivers on the road today, I have seen a remarkable decline in drivers following the rules of the road. Most of these bad drivers appear to be women. Men still drive too fast, but now women have...

Sexual assault is not a left/right issue. Sexual assault, from unwanted touching to rape, is a cultural issue. Men have historically had the power, the authority, and the physical strength to dominate women. Some men view this power, authority, and strength as inherent permission to do things...
