Accused of rape? She must guilty.  Throw the book at her. Women never lie about that sort of thing.  It just doesn't happen.

Damn.  My hat is off to the good Doctor.  She is really sticking up for men amidst the typical brainwashed bullshit of robotic men and women.

Three cheers for the doc!

You betcha!

The guy on the left is a bit hard to take with his condescending chivalry. He's the type of guy who is going to be paying hefty alimony in 10 years.

Without a doubt.
Three at once!  Just look at their shock and surprise towards the end.  Their body language says it all. That was a great big red pill they ate!

Fox and Friends talk to Dr. Helen Smith Men on Str

"I think it's deplorable," said Michael Kulla of Pleasant Valley, a licensed psychologist and member of Men-to-Men, a prostate cancer education and support group. "It bears investigation as to why it hasn't been disseminated for research. What's holding it up? Where are the sticking points? What's going on?


What's going on is that no one bothered to do anything because the funding was just for men.  And in this country men do not matter enough to warrant saving, much less helping at all. For those that disagree, ask yourself, "Would resources for breast, ovarian, or cervical cancer be left UNUSED for eight years"? Do you even need to ask this question?
I can't remember ever seeing or hearing something like this before.  I really gotta hand it to Matt O'Connor and F4J they did something I think might be a first in MSM history.  They went on TV, faced feminists, and actually called them LIARS!  Right to their face!  With the camera's running and the public watching.  This is great.  I hope it encourages many others to do the same.

Main / Feminist admits the wage gap is bunk!
Aug 31, 2013, 08:14 AM
I saw this on MR Reddit today and just had to share it. It's so delicious that we have to frame it for future use.  We all remember the feminist Hanna Rosin, and her nauseating misandric lecture, "The End of Men".  Well, it looks like she has offered us a gift that we can't just let spoil.  Here is a feminist saying that there is no wage gap based on discrimination, but rather the choices men and women make!  Make sure you all get screen shots while you can, pretty soon we are going to start hearing about how Rosin, " not really a feminist anymore...".  Enjoy!

The Gender Wage Gap Lie

You know that "women make 77 cents to every man's dollar" line you've heard a hundred times? It's not true.

By Hanna Rosin | Posted Friday, Aug. 30, 2013, at 12:49 PM

How many times have you heard that "women are paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men"? Barack Obama said it during his last campaign. Women's groups say it every April 9, which is Equal Pay Day. In preparation for Labor Day, a group protesting outside Macy's this week repeated it, too, holding up signs and sending out press releases saying "women make $.77 to every dollar men make on the job." I've heard the line enough times that I feel the need to set the record straight: It's not true.

The official Bureau of Labor Department statistics show that the median earnings of full-time female workers is 77 percent of the median earnings of full-time male workers. But that is very different than "77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men." The latter gives the impression that a man and a woman standing next to each other doing the same job for the same number of hours get paid different salaries. That's not at all the case. "Full time" officially means 35 hours, but men work more hours than women. That's the first problem: We could be comparing men working 40 hours to women working 35.

How to get a more accurate measure? First, instead of comparing annual wages, start by comparing average weekly wages. This is considered a slightly more accurate measure because it eliminates variables like time off during the year or annual bonuses (and yes, men get higher bonuses, but let's shelve that for a moment in our quest for a pure wage gap number). By this measure, women earn 81 percent of what men earn, although it varies widely by race. African-American women, for example, earn 94 percent of what African-American men earn in a typical week. Then, when you restrict the comparison to men and women working 40 hours a week, the gap narrows to 87 percent.

But we're still not close to measuring women "doing the same work as men." For that, we'd have to adjust for many other factors that go into determining salary. Economists Francine Blau and Lawrence Kahn did that in a recent paper, "The Gender Pay Gap."."They first accounted for education and experience. That didn't shift the gap very much, because women generally have at least as much and usually more education than men, and since the 1980s they have been gaining the experience. The fact that men are more likely to be in unions and have their salaries protected accounts for about 4 percent of the gap. The big differences are in occupation and industry. Women congregate in different professions than men do, and the largely male professions tend to be higher-paying. If you account for those differences, and then compare a woman and a man doing the same job, the pay gap narrows to 91 percent. So, you could accurately say in that Obama ad that, "women get paid 91 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men."

The point here is not that there is no wage inequality. But by focusing our outrage into a tidy, misleading statistic we've missed the actual challenges. It would in fact be much simpler if the problem were rank sexism and all you had to do was enlighten the nation's bosses or throw the Equal Pay Act at them. But the 91 percent statistic suggests a much more complicated set of problems. Is it that women are choosing lower-paying professions or that our country values women's professions less? And why do women work fewer hours? Is this all discrimination or, as economist Claudia Goldin likes to say, also a result of "rational choices" women make about how they want to conduct their lives. 

Goldin and Lawrence Katz have done about as close to an apples-to-apples comparison of men's and women's wages as exists. (They talk about it here in a Freakonomics discussion.) They tracked male and female MBAs graduating from the University of Chicago from 1990 to 2006. First they controlled for previous job experience, GPA, chosen profession, business-school course and job title. Right out of school, they found only a tiny differential in salary between men and women, which might be because of a little bit of lingering discrimination or because women are worse at negotiating starting salaries. But 10 to 15 years later, the gap widens to 40 percent, almost all of which is due to career interruptions and fewer hours. The gap is even wider for women business school graduates who marry very high earners. (Note: Never marry a rich man).

If this midcareer gap is due to discrimination, it's much deeper than "male boss looks at female hire and decides she is worth less, and then pats her male colleague on the back and slips him a bonus." It's the deeper, more systemic discrimination of inadequate family-leave policies and childcare options, of women defaulting to being the caretakers. Or of women deciding that are suited to be nurses and teachers but not doctors. And in that more complicated discussion, you have to leave room at least for the option of choice--that women just don't want to work the same way men do.

Since you did not understand the language they spoke, it would be difficult to conclude what the exchange was about.  However, I know this, women's haircut's usu cost more than men's typically. Which means a bigger potential tip.  That might be why the female customer was spoken to first.

It's okay to study men's health if you are trying to save money.  Just don't study it to try and save men.
