Equality - The Pay Gap - part 1 of 3
Yes, this picture is real. Are women willing to go the lengths of death to acquire territory and resources? Do women even have to? If they are, will they court us and provide them to us even outside of marriage after divorce? Men are and men do. Providing for women is the law both in social code and by the justice system. Women will not allow us different.
Will women allow men choices? Will men gain equal rights to earn a fair wage in this new found world where we compete directly with women for resources in business and from government; resources we need in order to provide to them in earnest and by force of family and divorce law and even in courtship? Most importantly will women's "liberation" continue to simply mean more "choices" as to how to extract resources from men and government or are women able to support themselves and "her" child on her own? Will men achieve the ends of independence from women's dependency? Will men ever become "liberated" from women?
I love the video but I DO Not like the ending. "She is not oppressed, he is"
I do not think it should be described with the feminist vernacular "oppressed". What I implore women to understand is that men and women are mutually bonded and supposed to be in servitude to each other. Though I do think it was stated this way to make a point to women.
If we insist on using the feminist vocabulary it would be stated we are mutually "oppressed" by the other...
To use MRA vernacular it would be stated......"we are mutually bonded" or at least I believe we are supposed to be mutually bonded and mutually dependent on each other.

This video makes me think what an attribute T.V. shows like DANGEROUS JOBS AND DIRTY JOBS ARE for the restoration of the image of men in our culture. I like your point that men need each other for the life of the other...
Men in these professions have been known to call each other baby when they are injured and coddle their head. I've seen combat video from the Iraq war of men doing this....It is a bond that is dangerous to share with a woman during such jobs....
You have to accomplish the mission or die. Men desire the strength and determination of other men to do it not women. Men work well with each other.
Women lobby to socialize what is supposed to be a free market run off market economic principals..When women do this they disenfranchise men from acquiring resources. I am very concerned about the "women first" laws we've implemented such as Title IX and Affirmative Action as to the effect they have on equal opportunities for men.....I'm very concerned that we will undergo hiring and promotion freezes for men so that women may advance over them without merit or effort as has been done in some socialist and Communist countries
Male value has been defined in terms of our willingness to sacrifice. Male value must no longer be understood as the proportion to which men are disposable and expendable both to marriage, as a husband, to children as a father and to society at large.. We must be given our equal rights, enfranchisement and agency, especially as part of the family and the lives of our children. We must no longer accept the role of "isolated resource producing males" in Alimony and Child Support to women who we are in legislated competition with as what is now a separate socio-political and economic class. Competition for the vary same resources males are forced to produce and provide to females.
Claims about sex-based wage discrimination have been repeated so often that many Americans simply accept them as fact. But a recently published — and quickly suppressed — study reveals a different picture.
Titled "An Analysis of Reasons for the Disparity in Wages Between Men and Women," the report tallies the results of over 50 studies. No one questions the fact that on average, men are paid more than women. But turns out this is an apples-to-oranges comparison.
The paper concludes the 20-cent odd wage difference is not caused by discrimination. Rather it's women exercising their right to make lifestyle choices. What choices are we talking about?
1. A greater percentage of women chose to work part-time.
2. Women may opt to leave the work force for childbirth, child care, or elder care.
3. Women are often willing to accept a lower paying job in return for family-friendly policies that allow them to have fewer hours, flexible schedules, and a shorter commute.
In addition, women work fewer hours than men. According to an article posted on the Department of Labor website, "Among full-time workers, 24% of the men, compared to 10% of the women, usually worked more than 40 hours per week:" http://www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/1984/06/art4full.pdf
And then the fact that men tend to work in occupations that are far more likely to injure, maim, or kill.
None of these are earth-shattering statements. But once again, myth-mongering forced the government to commission a costly study to prove the obvious.
In its foreword, the Department of Labor concluded, "this study leads to the unambiguous conclusion that the differences in compensation of men and women are the result of a multitude of factors." The DOL added this parting comment: "the raw wage gap continues to be used in misleading ways to advance public policy agendas:" http://www.consad.com/content/reports/Gender%20Wage%20Gap%20Final%20Report.pdf
