Mother's / Father's Day is a great example. Mother's Day is dressed up as a time to reward and praise our Mothers, for they do a fantastic job, all those thankless tasks, so we should tell them on that special of days just how much they're appreciated and how they're the backbone of the family......Fathers, well despite doing all the above let's get him some socks with 'old fart' on them?! Not because that's a way of rewarding him, but because society has allowed this to become acceptable.

Thankfully both Dempsey and Kone have moved on from their respective clubs, so hopefully no more examples of forwards wearing #2.
When I played for my local u16 team I wore #8 as a CM but due to an injury to the left back I became the left wing back and spent the next two seasons playing left back and left wing wearing #8.

Respect to Rat!!! Hahaha

Well without launching into a massive rant I'm going to go with some bullet points:
  • Equal Pay Rights
  • Sexual Objectification
  • Domestic Violence and Abuse
  • **** Threats on social media
  • Restriction of reproductive rights
  • Lacks of basic rights in certain countries and religions
  • Stereotyping

its not a great way to look at it, getting even because people should now pay for the stupid actions of those from the past.

They do get equal pay now?. Usually men are in higher positions because they are usually better at doing the job. No discrimination just accepting that some sexes are better at some things than others. Like women are better at giving birth. Joke. Saying women don't get the positions they deserve is as sexist as looking at every man in a position of power as undeserving.

  • Equal Pay Rights - agree on this - gender should not = differeing wages for the same job
  • Sexual Objectification - yes because men never suffer this - diet coke anyone - however it is rife with female exploitation out there and as long as Rhiannah think they are artists rather than role models not much will change - women buy into this and use it too so lets not badger men with it.
  • Domestic Violence and Abuse - over 40% of abuse victims are men and they are the ones we know about.
  • **** Threats on social media - not cool but women make threats over social media too - usually about keeping your children away from you cos you now have a new partner or missed a payment or some thing
  • Restriction of reproductive rights - they have much more rights than men so lets not get down this road - abortion has been done here and it aint pretty
  • Lacks of basic rights in certain countries and religions - what has other countries policies or religions have to do with Fathers day in the UK? my next door neighbour has new double glazing - I do not.. should I make a bullet point about that - do you see my point on that?
  • Stereotyping - this list you have made is full of sterotyping actually
Added some retorts in bold above - im sure we will disagree though.

Domestic violence only counts with physical action. Women know how to hurt much deeper than this. Most men won't go this low regardless of the situation.
