My girlfriend is taking a women's studies course at essex and hates pretty much everyone in the class. They all think they're entitled to all sorts of things because of their gender, to the extent that some blacks push it with slavery and their ancestors. I too agree with the P-dog.

hotornot is blocked by my school's computers

I'm gonna have to hop on the bandwagon and agree with Pern too. I personally don't give a shit if they don't shave their pits or don't wear bras or not, though.

Of course there are people who take these things too far (I know a descendent of one of the suffragettes and she is a major pain in the ass and has an enormous chip on her shoulder because of her heritage) but there are still massive discrepancies in the UK between male and female wages for equivalent jobs. Also there are a tiny proportion of female CEOs, execs, MPs, etc compared to males.....So there is still justification for 'womens lib'. Its not fair to assume that every female who would campaign on such issues is some hirsute man hater.

Women aren't CEOs because they're too insecure about starting a company. I mean, what if people don't like their products? It's enough to make someone cry. :<

But that begs the question of if that gap exists because the women who are available for that position are being discriminated against, or they're simply not as good at it as the men in similar positions are. I don't know how it is in the UK, but most women I know say they're terrified of leadership positions. Is this a common thing among women?

No, they don't get them because they're stupid.

Or because they don't want them. Ever think of that one? Sort of like gender-based affirmative action in colleges, where some schools need to put the same money into men's and women's athletics or have the same number of teams for each gender, even if four times more men are athletes than women. They weren't conditioned to not be athletes - they just don't want to! It could be the same thing in this case, though I don't know any corporate businesswomen (or businessmen, for that matter) and I've never been to England, so I can't say it's a familiar topic to me.

Wouldn't child birth also be a factor in why women have fewer CEO positions? I mean, unless I'm mistaken, women get up to three months (?) off for maternity leave. A quarter of a year is a long time to be away from work. I'm guessing the people who are doing your share of the work while you are birthing children are getting the promotions and such. But I'm guessing that's a pretty minimal factor.

Women aren't leaders because it takes real testosterone to be one. You have to be cruel, tyrranical, and make sure everyone knows you have great big cajones.
