Men paid less to fund 'equality' laws

Hundreds of thousands of men working in the the public sector are facing salary cuts of up to £15,000 a year as equal pay agreements take effect

Ah I see feminism is making some new friends!

Sorry about that chaps! You don't really mind taking a big pay cut, do you?

The fact that this is called 'equality of pay' is misleading. Its not about a woman getting paid the same amount for doing exactly the same job as a man, but about the TYPES of jobs that tend to be dominated by women getting paid the same as the TYPES of jobs that tend to be dominated by men. For a number of reasons, women tend to put less effort in, and create less value to the market and society through their jobs than do men. These reasons include:

1. Women tend to be hypergamic, meaning that they are attracted to men of a higher stature than themselves, including men who are wealthier than themselves. Women are more likely to find themselves supported financially by a man than vice versa. This means they are less likely to have to support themselves through their own wages, and therefore put less effort into their careers over the long term.

2. Women tend to opt for shorter term careers (ie retiring soon after marriage) or for part time/flexible work (ie to take time out of a career to have children).

3. Women tend to opt for more pleasant work, over more challenging and difficult work, and are less likely to work overtime or to travel great distances for their work.

And the list could go on.

But my point here is that if we start to go down the road of refusing to renumerate people who put more effort into their careers (ie mainly men) then eventually it will result in many people (mainly men) throwing up their hands in apathy and effectively saying "Why should I bother? I could take a simpler, easier job, with more flexible working hours, and earn just as much."

And this is just one of the ways in which feminist-inspired medling in the world of education and work is destroying male motivation to work. This is a dangerous game as the male motivation to work is the primary engine that drives progress.

I would love to do a college course, but i refuse on principle. The number of "women only" courses disgust me. We here every day that girls out-perform boys at school. So why should there be women only courses. This is sex discrimination, but because it is for the benefit of women it is not sexual discrimination, in the eyes of the Government. I would suggest that men boycott courses until they become equal for both sexes.
