  2. So, 67% women believe that they DO have equal rights, especially the younger women.
    And the figure for MEN who believe that they have equal rights is……
    ……. 10%?…….5%……None?……(I’m still waiting to hear????)

  3. Why would they bother surveying men? No-one cares what men think, not even some men!

  4. A problem with Equal Rights is how is it measured?

    How do we define what equal rights are, so that we know when that goal is reached.

    Voting? Yes!
    Equal work, equal pay? Yes!
    Education? Yes!
    Shared custody? NO!
    Gender villification Illegal? Women Yes! Men NO!
    Health? Women live longer that men!

  5. sorry Phillip, but men don’t have men only scholarships nor do boys get a fair deal at schools because the system has made it very difficult for men to work as teachers!

  6. Here’s a thought:
    Your relationship is apparently abusive if your partner is not your equal, or is vulnerable to you.
    That’s a third of women I cannot date, because to do so will in itself be abusive!

  7. THe strange thing about all the “domestic violence” witchunt is that many women like you to be a bit , erm, rough when you are in bed, or is that just my girlfriend, hehehe ?

  8. The real question is…
    What is a woman’s idea of a real man? I’m sure very few could answer that as it changes depending on their mood and whether they want to get their way or not. Obviously the following statement needs to be seen within reason but I have the impression that a woman likes a man who has the guts to put their foot down – though when it doesn’t suit it’s called harrasment and controling.

    No wonder men are so confused not only about their role in society but a little timid when it comes to “being the man”.

  9. Excellent comment John #2 – that was exactly what I was thinking.
    I expect you will find that the number of men that feel they do not have equal rights to women is growing.
