College men have fewer intellectual interests and poorer study habits than college women.  They enjoy reading books less, take fewer notes, study less, and play more.  Despite their lower effort, lower grades, and lower likelihood of completing a college degree, men evaluate their academic abilities higher than women.  [and, I add, earn more than them once they graduate.]

  1. When [almost eleven hundred] adolescent boys and girls were asked what it would be like to be born a member of the other sex… Boys were repulsed at even the idea of being born a female, or living in a female body, or facing female life choices.

    HOW ABOUT ASKING THE SAME QUESTIN TO MEN IN THEIR 40’s, AFTER THEY HAVE EXPERINECED LIFE AS ADULTS? WHERE MEN ARE TREATED DIFFERENTLY IN DIVORCE, IN THE COURTS, IN DATING, ETC. I WOULD GLADLY MAKE THE LIFE CHANGE. MAKE ME A 5’9” RED HEAD WITH AN HOUR GLASS FIGURE, DD’s AND A BEAUTILFUL FACE. THE ONLY THING I WOULD ASK WOULD BE I GET TO KEEP MY ENGINEERING ORINTEATED BRAIN, SO I CAN MAKE A GOOD LIVING.

    HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU APPORACHED A MAN FOR A DATE AND OFFEREDD TO PAY? AND IF HE ACCEPTS, YOU HAVE TO HOPE HE IS INTERESTED IN YOU RATHER THAN JUST GETTING A FREE NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN ON YOUR EXPENSE. IF YOU GET MARRIED, ½ OF YOUR ASSETS ARE TAKEN AWAY IN A DIVORCE; SHE DIDN’T WORK WHILE YOU DID. YOU GET TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT AND NOT SEE THE KIDS. AND YOU PAY NO MATTER WHO IS AT FAULT. IF SHE WAS CHEATING, YOU PAY. I YOU WERE CHEATING, YOU PAY. IF YOU ARE BOTH WERE CHEATING, YOU PAY. SEE A PATTERN?

    OH AND LETS NOT FORGET THE PAY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE GENDERS. YET NO COMPLAINT ABOUT WOMEN BEING UNDER REPRESENTED AS POLICE OFFICERS, FIRE MEN OR IN THE ARMY, NAVY, MARINES, AIR FORCE, COAST GUARD, WELDERS, ELECTRICAINS, BRICK MASONS, PUMBERS, CARPENTERS, AUTO MECHANICS, MACHINISTS, INSTRUMENT TECHNICIANS, PLANT OPERATORS, HEAVY EQUIPMENT OPERATORS, CONSTRUCTON CREWS, STEEL WORKERS, ROOFERS, FISHERMEN, FARMERS, MILL WRIGHTS, PIPE FITTERS, INSTRUMENT FITTERS, APPLIANCE REPAIR MEN, AC TECHNICIANS, ETC. NO MENTION OF THIS, BUT YOU WILL MENTION THAT 80-90% OF THE CEO’S ARE MEN. I WONDER WHY?

    GET INSTANT traffic and earning passive commissions from OTHER people’s efforts has never been so easy for hellyeahimafeminist.com

    I’m talking about a new way to generate quick traffic and sales in ANY niche with ZERO video/website creation, ZERO paid advertising/SEO.
    I’ve recently tried this product but quickly decide to write this review because I know this is exactly what you guys are looking for.

    SO, HOW EXACTLY?

    Well, MyTrafficJacker allows users to search by keywords on either Wikipedia and YouTube and find LIVE, but EXPIRED links that are STILL posted on these sites that you can pick up for as little as $10 and redirect that traffic and authority ANYWHERE they’d like!
