So, do you want equality with men or better than equality?  You can't have it both ways!  The whol ...



You are a lonely fighter against woman equality in China. We know you hate Chinese babies; now it is becoming obvious that you also hate Chinese women. A little extra effort and we will tickle your admission to hating Chinese males out of you as well...

Why do you make such a mountain out of a hill? Do any men complain about women having separate swimming lanes in a public swimming pool?

If society has to resort to this type of preferential treatment for one gender, it shows that some of its members do not agree with equality between the genders.

It is the same for separate women-only underground train cars. Most men can put up with this. We all also expect to have separate public loos, don't we?

I would give up any preferential treatment if I get the same pay as men do.

Why would you want to get the same pay as men? Are you willing to pitch in as hard as a man? Are you willing to forego maternity leave? If so, have your child born during your government-sanctioned public holiday. If your employer does not suffer any economic harm due to your women's issues such as a pregnancy, then by all means you should get the same pay as a man who performs as well as you do. But I hear from some woman libbers that women should get special treatment for being women: They want a monthly rest from work for menstruation. Do you think employers should pay women the same salaries and grant women menstruation leave on top of the statutory annual holidays?

I hope the world learns from China in setting up women-only swimming lanes in public swimming areas such as the oceans, inland lakes, rivers and swimming pools. They can set up viewing areas for men to watch the women in swimming action. Men should be willing to pay an admission charge and get a ticket to show their wives back home to prove they spent their pocket money on viewing innocent swimmers and not spending it on hookers.

  you beat me to it, I was about to reply her in same manner as you did! Women can't demand equal pay as men because they don't work as hard as men who don't go on maternity leave, and when women are carrying their babies around for nine m0nths, their work suffers, employers lose out.  And when the babies come, they have to rush home to breastfeed and change daipers, constantly watching the office clock.  Which employer wants that?

The two are separate and distinct matters!  You can ask your employer for equal pay as men, that is your personal matter, we don't care, but public amenities should not be set aside specially for women, to the disadvantage of other members of the public!

' We know you hate Chinese babies; now it is becoming obvious that you also hate Chinese women. '

Speak for yourself, only you think so, and besides, I never said anywhere that I hate babies or women, I only hate the irresponsible ones, the public nuisance!

If only two lanes for women that leaves the rest of the lanes as PREFERENTIAL treatment of men.

So you like mixed lines because you like to do the BREAST stroke while in there???
