  •  i'm already treated like a wage slave. (0+ / 0-)

    i fail to see the difference except wage slaves tend to have more stress, responsibities, and more danger. Probably the least stressful time of my adult life was the four months i spent unemployed. It would have also have been the happiest four months if it weren't for the fact that my wife couldnt' share in the joy of my unemployment.

    Women in western societies really have three choices in this regard. They can work full time, part time, or not at all. Men can work full time, or work full time, or work full time.  

    There's no human dignity in it either way, being forced to work outside the home or inside the home. Men in all societies are generally forced to work full days outside the game. Women in islamic countries largely don't have a choice to work anywhere but in the home. Western women have choice that few men in the whole world have and few women in the south-east. That is what i call privilege.

    Standing up for men and their interests does not constitute misogyny.

    •  Pure bullshit (6+ / 0-)

      Women don't have these choices you mention. They need to eat. They have the exact same choice men do - work full time.

      Now, if a COUPLE has a baby, and they choose for one of them to work part time or stay home, that's a choice open to men or women. But no woman alive today assumes she's going to get some kind of employment freedom out of getting married, unless she's in the 1%, in which case that's never a concern in the first place.

      It's absolute bullshit that you think there is equal dignity, or lack thereof, in being a wage slave and in being a sex hole - which is what these women are. There is dignity in work, even in crappy jobs, and whiney Westerners get a hell of a lot more out of work than do those in other economies.

      Seriously, I only expect to find this kind of whiny MRA crap on teabagger sites, along with all the other uneducated, self pitying bullshit.

      Seriously, what are you even talking about? How do women have the choice to work "part time or not at all", unless they are married and the husband is the breadwinner? In which case, the husband would have the same exact opportunity?

      Many women are FORCED to join the workforce, because they have to care for their children financially. How is that a privilege?

      Victims of rape, abuse, oppression and violence are better off then you, poor "wage" "slave" because you don't get to buy a big new t.v.

      poor kitten!

      Here's some news, kitten, "women" don't have those three choices. Some privileged women do.  NOT ALL OF US.

      I've worked three jobs for most of my adult life.

      Stop the self-obessessed whining and go back to stormfront.
