    If a woman drowns her 5 kids, it is because she is depressed and insane. She is the put in a mental hospital where she could be released anytime a doctor says she is not insane anymore.

    When a man kills his 5 kids it is because he is evil and must spend the rest of his life in jail(rightly so) or even the death penalty.

    I'm sure it's happened. But because of physical differences, there sometimes HAS to be a double standard. I'm sorry, but assuming normal size and strength differences, it IS worse if a man hits a woman than if a woman hits a man. (Of course there are exceptions, for example, if the woman is a boxer or the man is 5 feet tall.) I'm all for men and women being treated equally on a mental level, but to attempt to treat us equally on a physical level is to condone abuse of women.

    When a man gets his penis cut off by a woman and shoved into a garbage disposal, everyone thinks it's hilarious.
    When a woman is called a bitch by a man, that man is labeled a monster.

    Feminists have created the illusion that men are evil and most women aren't strong enough (or smart enough) to see how that will only make things harder and less appealing for us.

    You are right, but will you use this same reasoning for why, in many instances, a woman shouldn't be paid the SAME as a man for the same job? I don't think it is right. I DO think a woman should get the same pay for the same WORK, not just for the same job.

    When my son was in boot, women were in a different part of the camp. They made the men do like 20 chin-up when they first arrived - the women only had to hang for a few seconds. Both were considered the SAME qualifier.

    They're always a double standard when men fight women, physically, in court, mentally. Stereotypes always find their way in there. I say if women truly want to be seen as equal when men and women fight physically then they gotta realize that women are just as capable as men are of committing a crime.

    Thank the powers that be for juries jury

    For instance my daughters boy friend is sitting in jail right now! because his x was so jealous, she made false stalking allegations against him. The prosecutor has no witnesses no proof no evidence but this young man has been sitting in jail for 2 months on funked up charges and every one has went to the prosecutor to tell him that this girl has made false statements even the young mans employer has backed him.
    And since being in jail this thug broke the kids jaw over a bed assignment.talk about injustice, back wood, redneck judicial system Texarkana Tx.

    Update, by the way just yesterday after 2-months in jail and a wired up jaw compliments of texarkana tx. The young man i was talking about above was released without charges.
    Go figure! Is that not what the prosecutor was told that he was innocent! But you can bet your bottom dollor that the city is not going to return the taxpayers money that they wasted. Or pay the young man for lost wages, or put the woman in jail for false pretenses owe no that would be to much like Right.Sorry i forgot where i lived at for a moment! LOL

    Yes, judges still give harsher sentences to men for the same crime and have a hard time granting custody of children to the male even if moms a screw up.

    Yes, especially in child custody situations.

    Another grave injustice is that they have zero rights when it comes to their unborn child.

    Sadly, our court system ties their hands and leaves them no recourse when a child that is very much wanted by them is aborted by it's mother.

    As far as men receiving stiffer sentences for crimes like murder - there is less room for debate - as men tend to commit crimes that are more heinous in nature than women do.

    How about this women who systematically drowned her 5 kids because she was sad.

    How the women who left her kids in the car and drove it into a lake where her young children drowned..all because her new boyfriend didn't like kids...that's pretty heinous if you ask me.

    Being the best qualified can work against any group in theory, but selecting people based on ethnic and gender quotas always works against the white man in his own country.

    I don't think there is much doubt that men always recieve harser punishment for the same crime but where you really see the injustice is in divorce court.
    Just one example of this is when children are involved. At least in Texas, if you are slightly late with your support payment your former spouse can pick up the phone and have an arrest warrant put out for you.

    Yet if you always make your support payments and you have vistation rights for your children, the ex wife can just simply refuse to let you have them. The only thing you can do is spend yet more money to take her back to court so the Judge can tell her she is obligated to allow the court specified visitation.
