I know almost no one I can think of where the paychecks are slaved for then turned only solely to the 'woman' of the house to use at her
discretion. Most all I know both work and contribute, as it takes two incomes to put generic food on the table these days. I am certain this happens,
but I doubt it is so rampantly standard as that.
But now I am interested in the disparity of risk you mention. I may be falling behind in how two person households are run these days, but not sure
really of the risks not taken.
I know many men who turn over their paychecks to their women for spending on the household. Some of these women work and some do not. Nonetheless the
women in this nation primarily determine how the monies are spent..on both big ticket as well as small ticket items...across the board. The men keep
back some monies and the women determine how the bulk of it is spent. I am not just talking about food here...but everything.,
As to RISK...StarlineNine..I will cover that later in this post.
*Dollukka* stated that men and women should be paid the same for doing
the same job? = equality?? I fully agree .....
It is my opinion that chauvinism and feminism are two sides of the same coin, but
its not the same as 'equality'
Do they in fact do this eletheia??
I will repeat here what I stated earlier to Dollukka. The men or males are still heavily involve in what are called the Death Occupations. Is Dollukka
debating here for more of the women in this country to be employed in the Death Occupations where they can be more statistically killed or maimed for
life and their physical countinence marred..their value in the marketplace against other women or competition marred or scarred for life...even though
these jobs pay higher for the RISKS taken???
Is this what Dollukka is debating here??? In Equality???? doing the same work...taking the same RISKS???
What I note quickly when these types of conversation take place...the concept of RISK taking for ones monies is never brought up. Nor is often the
harsh conditions...long hours...hard shifts...bad enviornments...weather et al.
This all entails RISK Taking eletheia.
Is Dollukka debating for this much equality. That is my point here. Same pay for the same work...the same RISK.
You see...eletheia....when I hear leadership screeming for things being Fair..or Equal...and then I hear them speaking of "Wealth
Redistribution"....I've been around long enough to see clearly that they are not talking about "RISK Redistribution." I do not need to be highly
educated to see this clearly.
It is the same index or fingerprint with "Equality."
It is political hype. It is sexual hype. It is Guilt Politics in order to default through without debat or dissent.
It is also often PC which is the same index or fingerprint.
I personally do not know any women who read "romance novels" maybe a very
few adolescent girls? ... by the time they mature they realise they are being sold a
FAIRY TALE ...lol.
But afford it she can IF she is being paid an equal salary for an equal job, which
is still some what of a novelty!
LOL LOL LOL...yeah..I stuck that one in there for laughs. I am glad you found humor in it. I do too with a side note of seriousness to it. It is clear
to me that while many in the movement tout the "Glass Wage Ceiling " that someone is buying up so many of these books in order to keep this market
going. Someone's monies are being spent on them. If a woman is spending her own monies...no problem by me. I dont tell someone how to spend their
monies. But I note this disparity in lieu of the "Glass Wage Ceiling " so often touted and brought forth..particularly near election times.
I am also not speaking strictly of these books but a plethora of magazines of all types which appeal to women. I am constantly bombarded by them when
going through the checkout stands at the grocery store or the chemist. Someone is buying this stuff. I particularly notice the crem de la crem..Cosmo.
Glass Wage Cieling ??? Whose monies are being spent to support such an industry such that the shelves do not go bare in these products???
By the way ..I read some of these romance novels some years ago...and quickly realized that these books are what I call "Soft Pornography". Same
thing with Cosmo.
Access to dreams, fantasys, beliefs, and expectations, cheaply, and without rejection."
FUNNY.....The last time I was in hospital ALL the night staff were female
and I know that at least 50% of night staff in the local ASDA (that's your Wallmart)
are female. A few years ago when my Mother required an ambulance through
the night, the driver and one of the two attendants were female!!...
yeah...I used to date two nurses many years ago. They educated me to some informations about nurses as well as doctors and what goes on in many
I also know what an often thankless job nursing can be. Long hours little pay.
I am aware that many women today do not go into nursing and that there is a nurse shortage. This was created by the industry itself. Many women when
they find out how thankless and non paying the job is for the inconvenience and RISKS involved in the work they do not go into it or quit for jobs
more satisfying or even with better conditions. They quickly discover that nursing is not quite as portrayed in television and movies.
As to the contraception issue..I have no problem with women having access to contraception. I do have issue with being made to pay for it on the
public dole....for votes.
I think that it should be between a woman and her doctor and insurance company. Not the government...pimping out/merchandizing the women for votes.
Whether one party in a relationship makes more monies than the other is really none of my business. As I stated..I dont tell someone else what to do
or not do with their monies. That is a decision between these parties. I also dont believe the government belongs there in the decisions made between
two parties and their spending such as
But my point in this debate is that Equality is often politically overated and overdramatized for leverage and often in forums like this...with a
concept that most will not catch it.
I can go into any store on the street out here and see that the advertisers know their market and who has access to the decision making process of who
decides how and on what the monies are spent. In any of the variety of stores out here you see a ratio of about 7 to 1 merchandize marketed with the
female and women in mind. Not the men or males. Once again I do not need to be highly educated to figure this out. I dont think most of the males or
men even bother to figure it out. Most of them their depth of thinking falls way short here. As I said ...give them some sports, cheerleaders, and
alcohol..and they are good for another 1 to 2 hundred thousand miles...and many touchdowns too. I do not think this accidental..but
Unless it is a fishing program..I do not waste my time watching sports.
When the Super Bowl comes on I find out when is kick off time and then go to the stores. Not before ..but after kick off time.
I am not interested in the sports conditioning to run touchdowns at high RISK for women. I generally think it through as to whether it is even worth
my time and RISKS to so do...particularly in a day and time when "Equality " is taking place...Correct???
Well ..enough on that...
Oh...while I am at it...StarlineNine...I ordered that book you posted
"Womans Inhumanity To Woman"
Waiting for it to arrive. It sounded interesting and informative. Thanks for recommending it.
Some time in the last year I also read Erin Pizzey's book "This Way to the Revolution"
about the early days of the feminist movement in England. I found this to be very informative as to the direction someone intended to take the
movement and have succeeded today.
I am glad I ran across that name. Erin Pizzey. Very informative both in U tube video and in books.
Thanks again for recommending that book to me.
Thanks to all for their posts.
