I can't help but believe that if she'd --say -- only shot and killed him in the shower, she'd probably be going free.  She just went too far overboard really.

I've had some experience in this arena and I can tell you that they are without a doubt geder biased and in the extreme in some cases.

I always thought it would be a really interesting study to take two fake couples and have them go to the same counselors, identical issues but with the gender roles reversed.  I guarantee that most of them would give the opposite advice based on gender.

Ironically -- of course -- if you do a google search on "gender bias relationship counseling" all the articles you'll find deal with how relationship counseling is biased against women.

Also, take a look at the articles on the Psychology Today website.  It's a potpourri of feminist myth.
Personally I have absolutely no idea why any MRA would want to leave gays out of the movement.  It really just makes no logical sense to me.

To me, issues that people have with gay men are nothing more than another manifestation of the demonization of male sexuality in general. 

If you don't want to involve yourself with gay issues then don't.  There are plenty of issues on the MRA plate to work with that don't involve gay rights.

In a way being a gay man is the ultimate MGTOW.
Anybody seen a post-apocalyptic movie called "The Road?"  It's based on the Cormac McCarthy book of the same name.

Probably one of the most powerfully pro-father movies I've ever seen.  Not for the squeamish though.
I grew up around a fair number of alcoholics and already could've told you this.  If they study women they'll find the same thing.

It's the difference between someone who drinks too much and someone who's an alcy.  The alcy's are unable to appreciate the fact that what they do effects others.  It's pretty much the same emotional outlook as a toddler.  Most of them have this problem before they ever take their first drink.

Here's a guy on YouTube who claims that he signed up for a women's history class and it suddenly turned into lectures on women and gender by Hugo Schwyzer. The guy recorded Hugo lecturing in class - saying things like "women have the same sex drive as men - research is now proving that - but they don't go around raping everyone like men do". Absolutely offensive crap.

His claim about women and men having similar testosterone levels is patently absurd.  Men have on avg almost 100X as much.

At least the woman asking the question didn't tack on the usual lie, "... for exactly the same work".

I've been noticing that they've stopped doing that -- it usually ends up with someone providing a link to the CONSAD report that shows the real pay gap is 5%. 

So now they've stopped saying it since they've said it enough times that that's what most people hear anyway, whether it's there or not.

A quick google search on any of these countries along the lines of "education statistics by gender X country"  will quickly reveal that most of these places have better gender equity in education than the US does.

I often wonder if that has to do with the fact that the conservative Christian missionaries that set up the educational systems in most of these countries -- you know the ones everybody thinks are so bad -- educated children regardless of their sex.

I also wouldn't be surprised if hardly a penny donated actually ever makes it to a school anywhere.  Once all the do-gooders over here take their share I'm sure most of the rest of it ends up in the hands of some corrupt African bureaucrat.

From the comments section, we get this ....

"The thing is, it's patriarchy that says men are stupid and monolithic and unchanging and incapable. It's patriarchy that says men have animalistic instincts and just can't stop themselves from harassing and assaulting. It's patriarchy that says men can only be attracted by certain qualities, can only have particular kinds of responses, can only experience the world in narrow ways.

Feminism holds that men are capable of more - are more than that." -Meme floating around Facebook.

Just sayin'.

Can we get some rebuttals here?

Where can I get in touch with this patriarchy person who's saying all these things?  Is she a politician because I hear a lot of them saying things like this.
