While the U.S does a lot to support equality between genders, they fail. It`s the same between ethnicities. There are no caucasian scholarships out there, while there`s a crapload of Black American scholarships. This isn`t equal, but honestly..I can`t bring myself to care about it.
Of course, there are differences between genders, everyone knows that. However, like many people said, they don`t make one or the other more superior. Yes, different genders are better at certain things in life (Make me a sammmich! Just jokin` ..) but that isn`t going to say that one should have a preference over the other. My favorite quote from a song (Forget which one it is): "We share the same biology, despite our ideology".
Also. The "statistics" just don`t make much sense. I`ve known since like age 7 that girls mature and possibly make better judgments/are smarter than boys. We`re just more mature. Big woop.
Also whoever asked, "What are you guys doing?"Women and crime. :D
I`m not even getting into the whole feminist argument. It doesn`t have anything to do with the whole web page.
What it`s saying is that we need a change, a system of doing things that will cause both genders to succeed. Without addressing both needs there can be no equality.
Take education for example. Recently, for other purposes, I`ve come across some information on the idea that the reason why boys have so much trouble in schools today revolves around the idea that it`s not necessarily tailored to how they learn and think. Things like sitting for long periods of time, (guys need to move because of the testosterone in their bodies), reading (boys reading skills develop behind those of girls, etc. Things that girls do well and exceed in, but guys tend to struggle. It makes Susie look good, but Fred to feel dumb. This happens frequently and because of that it`s easy for someone like Fred to stop trying or to give up completely. Or in other cases, like this indicates, turn to other more destructive activities.
What it`s saying is that we need a change, a system of doing thi
And it doesn`t help the site to have a grammatical error in bold on the top of the page :-P."The Boys Project" should be "The Boy`s Project".And I was thinking the same thing as 42467 (page two). If they include statistics like suicide and jail, why did they leave out fairly interesting/informative statistics on stripping and prostitution male vs. female?Of course, this is pretty much me just feeling the need to defend something that doesn`t need to be defended :-|.
Take 1 Bill Gates. It would take 60`000 female millionaires to negate him. Take 1 Micheal Jordan, it would take 250 female millionaires to negate him.
Overall if you cut out the top 2% or so of the richest people in America (who are almost exclusively male), the remainder are far far far more even.
This will change with time now, not policy. We just need to make sure policy is in place to protect wages/salaries for women (and men) and ensure they have the *opportunity* to do whatever job they want.
If someone turns out to not be qualified that`s another matter, but they should have the chance to demonstrate that they are capable of performing any job.
Sh-it im straight and ill allways be straight caus being gay is wrong (to me atleast it is as long as gay people dont come out to me im fine)
Why is it when there is an article thats more in favor of boys, the girls say "Well thats just sexist, I mean we are all equal you know.", though when an article is in more favor of the girls, thats when they say "YEAH THATS SO TRUE! I KNEW GIRLS WERE THE BETTER GENDER!"???
Point very well taken. Please let that sink in right now.
So you get to take out your revenge on the billions of males who were born after the 1970s and haven`t done anything to you?
Furthermore, we`re supposed to give you perks because you bleed once a month and have a womb? Yes... that`s better than me wanting perks because I can`t sit crossed legged as comfortably.
If anyone has a problem with what I said, dont have a hissy fit. It`s my f***ing opinion.
Whether these numbers are taken out of context or not, the point of the collection was not to point out the superiority or inferiority of any one group, but to justify actions that encourage young men to go to college.
The intention here is to show that today boys need more programs and more help to be able to catch up to the girls, who may already be getting the help they need.
If anyone thinks that this suggests that "girls are better" or something similar, well, that is just your own circumstances and experiences talking, not the study. If anything is it just suggesting that boys have more turbulent childhoods and that a lower percentage choose to pursue secondary school.
It`s just in support of boys` programs, which is a great idea.
Oh and all of this boy = girl and girl > boy crap needs to stop. Really, just accept that we are different - not only as stats but as individuals.
So remember kids. Murder`s not your problem. You`re not going to hell for their decision.
The issue here is that one side is saying there is a victim. I happen to think that a human is not devoid of rights because it`s in a womb. I`d get pretty pissed off if you killed your kids outside the womb too, and I`d stop/report you, or fight to have their rights upheld. "Well I`m not the one going to hell" is utter bullpoo.
Don`t use an argument you wouldn`t even believe yourself. Would you use that for murder? No. Child abuse? No. Theft? No.
You make an exception for abortion because you want to, not because the argument is less flawed. It`s a convenient way to ignore the issue.
eat, sleep, reproduce(continue our race).... a simplistic reason what we are all were really here for

They think too much and are too insecure how people would think of them after death.
Who the f*** cares? You`ll be dead and not have to worry about it. However, the damage to the families and frieds that once supported is the consequence.
Comparing living a life in vain only to figure you`re worthless to women, and your best would be a slut. Hell, death is better than dealing with that burden. I mean, die with dignity, instead of family shame for eternity.
I don`t support suicide, but considering the state of the world, as is, what`s the difference, losing another life? Everyone could care less; especially sluts and players.
Here`s your sexist membership card.
"and yet, theres still more girls in the world"
May seem so, but not quite...
From the CIA World Factbook: Sex ratio:at birth: 1.07 male(s)/femaleunder 15 years: 1.064 male(s)/female15-64 years: 1.024 male(s)/female65 years and over: 0.781 male(s)/femaletotal population: 1.014 male(s)/female (2007 est.)
With how women are these days, no wonder why men keep killing themselves. I guarantee a majority of them were the nice guys and gentlemen.
See women, this is what happens when you slut yourselves.
Some: The gender gap is as big as it was in 1929 just in the other direction. Are you suggesting things were fine for girls in 1929? Finally: The girls have been ahead for over 25 years. How many generations should pass before we balance it?
The government *already* limits abortion to 24 weeks in almost all states and many countries, although many also choose 12 or 16 weeks.
When the pro-life/choice movement tries to modify current law, the argument of "don`t impose morals" is null. The period of 24 weeks currently in wade vs. roe conclusion is based on outdated science and medical technology. No new "morals" are being introduced, just new facts on what the limits of viability are.
The reason there is a debate, young 13-17s is because it doesn`t apply if your morals infringe on someone else.
That`s why rape isn`t covered in "right to choose", because you take away someone else`s right in the process.
Currently, with any country that has a limit of 24 weeks, you are allowing the aborting of something with the ability to think, dream, and feel pain. Something that is capable of surviving independently.
Something that would not be killable if it were outside the mother`s womb. The judgment is based on where it is, not what it is.
(Which is why even the UK`s largest abortion provider has suggested lowering the abortion limit by 1 month. This should in part cut out the 50 supposedly "nonviable" children/year in the UK who survive the abortion process).
pwnt, women. sorry, but we`re all about the STABBIN.
The day i see myself the same as every other man in the world, is the day i die.
That, and, although I hate these kind of defensive posts, and all these commas (or commae), there is a real reason for the education side of this debate. Schools were once considered to be biased towards boys, so they tried to fix that. They did that by, instead of eliminating co-ed, and holding different behavioral and mental expectations, slanting everything towards a quiet, hands-off, unimmersive school. This allowed girls, who are calmer by nature, to excel, while boys, being more rowdy, disobeyed these rules created specifically to make them more likely to disobey the rules. This led to many boys being classified as "ADHD". However, since the standard was now set with girls as the norm, this meant they were hyper, for girls, which puts them right at the norm for boys. This overcompensation has made school difficult for boys, instead of equally challenging.
I love boys....they wouldn`t be nearly as endearing if they weren`t so "violent" "clueless" "disfunctional" now would they?
So stop it. No bull poo whining trying to play stuff off or gloating.
Anyway, interesting fact, the education system greatly favors chicks because it frowns upon free thinking, you know like the invention of the light bulb mentioned above. It`s a design flaw that needs to be fixed because you can see all the inequality it creates.
Yeah whatever suicide rate, correctional facility. Guys take more risks that`s fine, but there is no excuse for some of the education rates being as much as 35% different between sexes. That`s discrimination if anything and only some of the top schools in the country are doing anything to help create "equal" education. I hope everyone learns a lesson from these sort of creepy mistakes.
People make errors, our broken education system designed to improve yet break at the same time the system of school houses is not cool. Learn that.
For every 100 girls TWO men created the world`s first airplane.
For every 100 girls ONE man created the lightbulb.
Each side has its advantages. We should accept that we`re equals and stop trying to beat each other. Besides, men need women and vice versa.
Now I feel like i`ve bee over preachy but theres some really small minded people (of both genders) in this thread).
And on the topic of abortion, woman should have the right to choose. No one has the right to press their own morals or beliefs on anyone but themselves.
Being a woman is not ALL about giving birth.
---Yea you forgot about cooking and cleaning for men and taking care of your birth children. ...Can I get a amen anyone?
Now these two statistics are interesting. I did a research project on ADHD and the overprescribing of Ritalin, and I read that most of the children diagnosed with ADHD were boys. Stop and think about this for a second. Boys tend to be the ones with more energy in the classroom, because, biologically, males are the ones who are usually more athletically inclined. Females, on the other hand, tend to be more mentally inclined, and can sit still and listen for longer periods of time. So when the time comes for classes to start, the males are held up to the females` standards of behavior, even though males are biologically different than females in inclination. So answer me this: Do guys REALLY have more of a chance of having ADHD, or is it really sex
and a judge is three times more likely to convict a man of the same crime then a women of the same crime.. just look at the paris hilton crap.. if she was say.. Connan O`Brian then they would be serving time alot faster.
As a girl, I want to say that I personally hate it. Girls and boys are different and should be treated differently, but one shouldn`t be treated better than the other.
be proud, boys AND girls.
for every 100 girls sports teams that don`t suck, there are 10000000000000000000 guys teams.
for every 100 sandwiches made by a woman, there are 0 sandwiches made by a man.
Gay Is Better Than Straight -Don`t ask-Turtles Are Better Than BrainsAsians Are Better Than MartiansBlacks Are Equal To WhitesFemale Is Equal, But Not Identical, To Male
Okay Peeeeople? : [ Gender Wars Piss Me Off.
haha the funny thing is, everytime a similar article is published in favour of men or boys, girls scream bloody murder.congrats, you are an idiot!
Well, actually, although I`m ussually all "GIRLS ARE BETTER THAN BOYS RAWR!" (But I don`t really follow through with it, I don`t honestly really give a drat either way...) I think this is kinda dumb...
For every 100 girls suspended from public elementary and secondary schools 250 boys are suspended. For every 100 girls expelled from public elementary and secondary schools 335 boys are expelled.
That sounds like my school.
Feminism is about equal rights and equal opportunity so I`m sure it is affilliated with the gender equality movement, however, it has nothing to do with the examples of corrupted affirmative action that you gave earlier.
I`m not sure what you are even trying to argue about.
..>_>; There was a point?
Aha, no, no. You just suggested that women cannot win nobel prizes. I just suggested that men cannot give birth. Another important thing in the world, like the nobel prize (if you want to compare them). Only men are not capable of it.
That`s not feminism, that`s affirmative action, and I don`t agree with the practices that you mentioned because it isn`t how affirmative action is supposed to work.
"How about women taking 52 weeks of maternity leave?"
Men are allowed to take parental leave if they choose to do so.
For every 100 men who deliver a baby, oh wait..
If you can find me proof that all-guys schools do better, then I`ll at least respect your reply. Until then, no.
I don`t want to get into a debate over this, but having an abortion doesn`t take away the ability to have children(it can, but only in rare cases if complications arise).
And don`t blame skullylake`s "misunderstanding" on not being able to read because your post comes off as being exactly what she stated in her reply.
And there are plenty of real feminists in North America. Feminazis are NOT feminists, they are women supremists and they aren`t taken seriously here any more than they are elsewhere in the world.
Feminism can`t be counterproductive because the very definition of the word is "belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunity".
How do you work for women`s rights when you don`t even kn
jeez, if girls want "sexual equality" then how come guys are expected to "put the seat down, and hold doors open" for girls? f*** no that`s stupid.
also i noticed they didnt have:
For every 100,000,000 woman with PMS there are 0 men with PMS
And did anyone else notice the text got smaller as the report went down?
For every 100 female prostitutes there are about 5 male prostitutes
for every 100 female strippers there are 15 male strippers
also you notice how us guys have many more learning diabilities,but we finish high school just as much?
I agree with everything you`ve just said. Although I don`t think it`s exactly on topic.
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING GUYS?"well, rape, murder, domestic, abuse, drunk driving, and tax evasion, to name a few.
This webpage is not proving anything. You should acknowledge that boy are better than girls in some areas, and girls are better than boys in other areas. That does not mean either is superior. For example, after world war 3, having the type of personality that lands you in jail might help you survive in the nuked wasteland.
My point in a nutshell femnisim is counter-productive.
That does not have much to do with the link, but there it is.
"For every 100 girls who are colourblind, there are 100,000,000 boys Who are Colourblind"
The director of this project is a woman. The statistics on the page are gender neutral, but do demonstrate lack of university attendance by males.
Some stats are pro female, some are pro male.The ones that matter for the vast majority of their project (The ones on uni attendance) are well established.
Women outnumber men in university. Men are under represented. Men are in fact more under represented than women were in 1929.
You shouldn`t dismiss statistics out of hand because "they`re statistics". Find out about them. Find out if you`re being lied to. In this case, it`s fairly straightforward.
Aren`t these statistics instead of facts?
That`s the sort of thinking that leads to prejudice d thinking in the first place, boys and girls are not the same, just like you and I are not the same.
That doesn`t mean one is better than the other.
Don`t ignore the differences, just understand that those differences don`t make you (or them) superior.
It means schools have dumbed down because they believe that liberal crap about men and women being equal, and women thus deserving equal oppertunities. If you don`t believe that, kindly explain to me why all-male schools achieve better than all-female schools.
Or, y`know, miscarriages.
I think this is a horrible study actually. It`s things already known and out of context (e.g. the suicide example already posted).
For every 100 girl babies born there are 105 boy babies born.
That`s a lot of abortions!
Also:"For every 100 females ages 15 to 19 that commit suicide 549 males in the same range kill themselves."
"For every 100 females ages 20 to 24 that commit suicide 624 males of the same age kill themselves."
Only because guys are more effective:
"In the United States, more than four times as many male youth die by suicide, but girls attempt suicide more often and report higher rates of depression. The gender difference in suicide completion is most likely due to the differences in suicide methods. Men are more likely to use firearms, which lead to a fatal outcome 78% to 90% of the time."
Even with females outnumbering males in university, there are still more scholarships promoting women in order to promote ....equality.
Yessss. But I wonder why they would post this information on a boy type of site? To show how boys should learn from their mistakes?
