@Mir, That may be true in your job and area; it certainly is not true in all jobs, and all parts of the world. Are you honestly asserting that women in general have as much money as men do? Do you think it is a problem that only a minuscule fraction of top leadership positions are held by women? How about corporate CEOs, for example?And speaking of a misuse of statistics, your point about physical violence is certainly a candidate. First off, let's just assume we are only talking about the developed world, since we can probably agree that there are many parts of the world where spousal violence towards women remains not just commonplace but acceptable. Secondly, including all levels of "violence" as equal is bizarre, to say the least. Is a glass of wine in the face pleasant? No. Is it the same as being beaten? Obviously not. Spousal violence requiring medical treatment is overwhelmingly male on female. Sexual assaults are overwhelmingly male on female. Spousal murders are overwhelmingly male on female.I'm sure you know these things, so why would you make a post suggesting that female violence towards men is somehow on par with the male violence towards women? What's your point? That the fact that men are far more likely to seriously injure or kill women is somehow counterbalanced by glasses of wine to the face?And again, this is all pretending that we can ignore the many regions of the world where the oppression of women is gross and overt.
