Wow. Just wow. That is just ridiculous. I can't believe after all this time, women and men are still not completely equal. It's sad that when a woman takes a "mans" job, the pay becomes lower, but if a man is doing a "woman's" job, the pay increases. It's also maddening.

Wage gap could explain why women are more likely to be anxious and depressed than men

Wage gap could explain why women are more likely to be anxious and depressed than men | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
The odds of major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder were markedly greater among women who earned less than their male counterparts, with whom they were matched on education and years of experience, according to new research conducted at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. Results of the study are online in the journal Social Science & Medicine.

The odds that an American woman was diagnosed with depression in the past year are nearly twice that of men. However, this disparity looks very different when accounting for the wage gap: Among women whose income was lower than their male counterparts, the odds of major depression were nearly 2.5 times higher than men; but among women whose income equaled or exceeded their male counterparts, their odds of depression were no different than men.

Results were similar for generalized anxiety disorder. Overall,

"As November babies and gender critics, we take Movember as a personal affront.


There’s a school of thought that says any act in service of a good cause is a good act. So why do we hate Movember? Are we grumpy contrarians and feminist killjoys who hate things precisely because other people love them? Probably, but there are deeper reasons for our Movember naysaying, too.

I like how it says that it becomes epidemic of children being without their dad. But also, it is really upsetting that there are no real man in their community. Also, there are no work and nothing to do. Because of that women have to do everything. This is another example of gender differences and where women have to do everything in order to survive.

Why Don’t Men Kick Each Other in the Balls? » Sociological Images | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

I do think it’s somewhat odd, though, that men who fight each other outside of controlled conditions—men in street fights, bar brawls, and parking lot scuffles—also usually avoid hitting below the belt. These fights aren’t about training or skill, like those between professional athletes, they’re real attempts to do some damage out of anger or defensiveness. So, why no hits to the balls?
