Because by the love of all gods, I am now imaging a vaguely amazon one-eyed lady swinging around a short fat man wearing bagh nakh.
It would create the most amazing mass killing headline the world has ever seen.

If that's not feminism, I don't know what is.

I'm alright with quotas, actually. I just see them in a certain light, i.e. a prevention from some asshole hiring manager to just hire all men, and ignore the women. :v

Frankly, I've seen a whole lot of people whining about how it's reverse sexism and "It's about merit, not genitals!", and not many numbers of how many guys actually lose out on a job to someone demonstrably inferior based on their sex. :I
It's actually come full circle to reverse reverse (aka "normal") sexism in certain areas; I got a decent chunk of scholarship money to study abroad simply for being part of an under-represented demographic: males.  :P

That aside, going from what I've heard from someone I know who spend a long, long time working as an upper-level HR manager in both the private and public sector, affirmative action hiring is less about quotas (in that they're still pretty heavily stressed, but not absolute requirements imposed from on high) than people make it out to be, and that a large part of it is that if several candidates are equally qualified, under-represented groups will be selected to fill positions first.

Funnily enough there have been several studies showing that at this point teacher's have done so much affirmative action for girls in lower school grades (making an effort to call on girls, etc.) that we've actually reached the point where they are starting to suggest the opposite, that teachers need to make an effort to focus on guy education in order to ensure that they succeed.

I'm seriously beginning to wonder how in the world people live with such constructs about gender differences in their daily lives...that they don't see what are the causes deeper in on them.

Yeah, that's the other argument about quotas, that they... aren't exactly a thing. At least not in popular imaginings.

But still, even with quotas, they're not... TERRIBLE. Just kind of slippery?

I wish there was some business or service were you could hire a midget to bash someone's face with a baseball bat and then tell them what a piece of crap they were.
I should start this business. [/slowpoke]
I never knew you were a midget, MZ.

They've done really badly this year for some reason in 16 - 18. Something something I blame facebook.

Don't forget how a large number of high school guys act like lazy idiots, even if they aren't.

At least, that's how it is where I "learn".

So, I have this annoying student teacher who'll be around for a month. She makes us take like twice the number of notes our actual one does. I never even use notes, I just learn the stuff the first time around.

The best teachers I've ever had are men, simply because of their gender and subsequent out-look on life. I'm sure that something similar happens for girls. Majority of teachers are women, however. I only have one male teacher at the minute.

And there will never be true equality, because there's a reason people are split into genders, not just the observable physicality. Women tend  not to be as strong as men. Men tend not to be as flexible as women. This is why women are less likely to be builders, or haulers, and men are less likely to be acrobats. Genders think differently, too. Not alien thoughts, similar, but different.

Equality is a noble pursuit, but based on the principle that the people are originally the same. What should be worked towards in equal opportunity, not the deliberate cultivation of genders in certain areas. If they're good at it, let 'em do it.
