@obhwfgirl I didnt complain about maternity leave, complained about the way she did it. Not using it during her pregnancy but after her birth. But that`s fine for her employer to pay for an employee thats barely working then for her and a temporary replacement so she can bond with her child because she`s a women. Rather then its purpose to take time off when u can`t do your job and then go back when you can.

So you`ve only heard the one group where by law its ok to discriminate about complain about them being discriminated against. condoleezza rice is against affirmative action there are a lot of people of all races and sex who see and understand its wrong. Imagine being overlooked in life and told your the only group its ok to do it to. Seriously get a clue all discrimination is wrong

I`m so sorry that the world we live doesn`t discriminate against a woman for her natural biological functions. Or that the world is willing to make accommodations for a woman so her baby will be healthy.

BTW, the only people I have ever heard complain about anti-discriminatory policies are healthy, competent white men. Imagine being harassed and overlooked in life because people either intentional discriminate against you or from their own ignorance.

Seriously, get a clue.

@moe I was also covering someones maternity leave at a job (science technician). She took it right at the end of her pregnancy before she gave birth so could spend as much time with her kid. (which is wrong as it`s designed to cover you while you`re incapacitated to work as you`re heavily pregnant not for you to bond with your child on company pay-roll)

My work load was a lot more then her`s, which from what i gathered included filing. she couldn`t deal with any of the chemicals, the smell or site of biological waste, move any equipment, or even travel down 2 flights of stairs to do photocopying, despite having a lift key. Even when she came back she still only did filing and photocopying. Is it fair that i had to move heavy equipment, deal with harsh chemicals, and do all the work she did as well.

Yet she got paid more as she was a permanent member of staff and me a temporary fixed term contract. Rubbish world you women live in right

@Moe Job`s wont have a standardised pay for women and a standardised pay for men that`s illegal. Say a shelf stacker at tesco`s will have same pay rate for all starting workers and same rises for each worker on year on year. then you`re looking at pay rates for job`s where when you join you`re having to discuss your pay rate. Then you will get inequality between men and men women and men and women and women. Many different factors will go into it and it will also matter about your ability to negotiate.

As for suing people that wronged you, its very easy for women to sue employee`s for sexism too easy in fact. Same with claiming racism. Yet it never works the other way around when its actual policy. Met hiring has had hiring initiatives where white male candidates are automatically disqualified however qualified they are for their race and gender but nothing will be done about it. as they now have to reach quota`s or women and ethnic minorities.

If you really believe this insane conspiracy bullpoo is real, here`s a simple task:

Dig deeper and (assuming the information hasn`t been made unavailable for political reasons) compare pay like for like in your country.

Exclude all factors other than sex. Same job. Same number of working hours (not just "full time", as that can be 35 hours or 55 hours). Same amount of experience. Etc. All things the same other than sex, i.e. to find out if sex is actually the relevant factor.

Free clue: It isn`t.

But I don`t expect you to check. You have your faith. Reality need not apply. You`ll continue to spread propaganda to promote sexism. Maybe you even believe it.

You`re claiming the most widespread secret conspiracy ever and you think I`m not living in the real world?

You`re worse than the 9-11 conspiracy theorists - at least they only need thousands of people to take part in their pie-in-the-sky conspiracy theory. You need almost all men and very many women to be taking part in yours, without anyone ever blowing the whistle.

It`s not even vaguely waving in the direction of being plausible. It makes sense only as propaganda to promote sexism. It`s been very useful for that purpose.

Do you really think that every employer has a perfectly secret seperate payroll system that pays women less than men for the same amount of the same work *and nobody has noticed*? Seriously? That`s insane.

Angilion, I don`t know what world you live in, but where I live (Finland), generally considered to be very advanced in terms of gender equality (we have a female president and a female prime minister, after all), women still get paid on average about 80% of what men get paid. I love how in your little world every injustice can be fixed by simply suing everyone who wrongs you. How sweet.

girls bitch and whine about our jobs, when we don`t get a promotion we blame it on our boss for being "sexist" becuase he gave it to the guy who worked hard, did the extra time, didn`t take off months for matrnity leave, did the jobs no else wanted to do, and actually deserved it.
Maybe their are sexist bosses out there but half the time the guy actually deserves that extra pay, that`s how it is at my job anyway.

Back in the real world, it`s now established legal precedent in the UK that

(i) Under some circumstances, employers must pay women more than men for doing exactly the same amount of exactly the same work.

(ii) If two different jobs pay different wages and the higher-paid one is mostly done by men, it`s automatically sexism (but not the other way around, of course)

(iii) Treating a female employee only as well as a male employee is sexism against women because doing so is not giving her the preferential treatment she deserves for being a woman.

Remember, these are formal legal precedents.

So yes, the pay thing has been a very useful big lie. I`m not surprised some people still use it. I`m slightly curious how much preferential treatment in employement would suit feminist ideas of "equality", but I`ve learned over the years that the answer appears to be that no degree of privilege will be considered enough.

Which is, of course, illegal. It`s easily proven, so of course you sued your employers and got wads of money.

If it happened, that is. Which it doesn`t, not in the real world.

It`s been a useful big lie, but its time is passed. You can`t fool everyone all of the time for ever.

Eh, I give it an A- for puns and cleverness, and a F for being a terrible MSDS for women and not very scientific. a)It`s too generalized. b) It doesn`t give enough information on its physical properties or on handling the compound. I suspect that the author doesn`t have much experience dealing with the real stuff.

jayme21, no. I`m talking about the kind of thing where I notice that my female co-workers and I got paid less for doing the same job as my male co-workers. It`s the kind of thing where if I make a mistake or say something stupid it`s "because I`m a woman", but when a male friend of mine does something similar it`s "because they`re an idiot".

Whether it`s clever and funny is opinion. I and several other people find it funny, and some don`t. Just because you don`t doesn`t mean it isn`t. Sense of humor is different for everyone. Like dead baby jokes. Hilarious for some, horrible for others.

jayme21, I didn`t say that women who find this funny must be young and naive. I said that this particular person (who is 13 to 17, according to her profile) might just be lucky enough to not yet have experienced being discriminated against for being a woman. I sincerely doubt that anyone who has genuinely felt mistreated finds that particular brand of mistreatment very funny.

But even I found "common ore" quite funny. That`s a play on words, and it`s clever. But most of this wasn`t funny, just plain sexist. The general implications of this post were: Women are gold-digging, explosively overemotional and irrational, and are only good for looking at or doing chores.

Anyway. I`ll try to give it a rest now. I`m not trying to impose my morality on anyone else, just commenting on why this bothers me a little bit personally.

Wow, Moe you have generalised any women who finds this funny(which there were) as young and naive and not understanding what`s its like.

relax people here think this is funny, not because of the stereotypes but the way its been presented like chemical data sheets. it being clever is a matter of opinion. So Chilax you`ll never get a rich husband to marry you the way you`re going :p

That was doing the rounds when I was at university. It doesn`t seem like a long time ago to me but when I think back, the friend who gave me a copy of this mailed it to me on a 3.5" floppy. I viewed it on my Commodore Amiga`s Workbench OS.

They have, years ago when they made this one. They`re usually quoted as a pair. It`s still inane sexist crap, but at least then it`s inane sexist crap against both sexes, which is a sort of equality.

basketkase, I disagree that women are "more emotional" (that would be a bit of an insult to men, I think), but that isn`t really what this thing is saying. It`s saying we frequently "explode without reason". And while some women probably do, so do very many men. That isn`t in any way exclusive to women.

lol you act as if the stereotype is unwarranted, compared to men, women are way more emotional. You could prove yourself right by not being so emotional, maybe you could set an example for the rest of the world.

basketkase, I love how whenever women try to make a reasoned argument against something, it just gets back to us "freaking out". I assure you I`m sitting here at home quite calmly. It`s a little bit annoying that a woman can`t argue against this whole "women are overemotional" thing without supposedly affirming it.

Either we can just smile and ignore every sexist comment, or come across as overemotional feminazis who take everything too seriously.

Argondey, no, but the point of this is to say that women are all money grubbing and overemotional. It isn`t saying that "some women" are like this, nor is it saying that "some men are also like this". It`s making unfair generalizations about an entire gender. I suppose you could assume that it`s also making fun of chemical engineers for... what exactly?

Look, I get that it`s a joke. I`m not new here. Sexist jokes are around all of the time. And as I said, I ignore it the vast majority of the time. Sometimes, when it`s clever (and that`s a key point here), I find it funny. But this isn`t clever. It isn`t insightful. It isn`t funny. It`s just mildly offensive, and thus annoying.

j12araiza... seriously? Ok, fine. It`s just that I can completely ignore 99% of sexist jokes when they come my way. It just gets really old once in a while. I`m not seriously attempting to battle sexism on the internet because I know it`s a completely lost cause, I just have to say something sometimes. Particularly when the "jokes" in question are as unfunny, inaccurate and old as these.
