I think there's a big difference between men and women and in some cases it makes sense that they get paid less. This obviously depends on the job. There are a lot of work they can do as well as men do, but some job, as in heavy labour, men are naturally better at. There's also a much bigger chance we won't disappear for several months which would force an employer to employ yet another person to replace her.

I think the discrepancy in pay is more of an issue in the corporate world, rather than manual labour.

Also, employers aren't allowed to discriminate in view of pregnancy.

Hmm.. I don't have much to say about that, really.

I know they are allowed to discriminate in view of pregnance, but I think it makes sense that they would like to do that.

I can get that employers might want to be able to shy away from taking on an already pregnant woman, but at the same time I think it's only fair that the law says they can't (openly, at least).

Yeah I know about the laws and all that. It was just my opinion, you know.

I'm not entirely sure what you're getting at, really. Is your opinion that companies should be allowed to discriminate against pregnant women? I'm not being arsey, I'm genuinely unclear on it.

Well, women in general. Not just the pregnant ones.

I now feel I chose a bad day to make my original post.

Oh, okay. Well I disagree entirely, but then that's what this thread's all about, eh?

Nuudoru, I understand how you feel about that, /v/ complain about "woymn" a lot, all I think that women should stop doing is saying that they're being oppressed by the male society anymore, because, well you're not.

If any sort of discrimination occurs you go straight to the courtroom and then shout about it, sure people may believe they can get away with it but that doesn't prove anything.

Hell, when you think about it...

The Nolan Batman movies are very overrated

The best video game genre is Beat 'Em Up

Master Chief is a terrible, lame character

Juice is better than soda

Also because it's completely untrue?

It's cool, I hate the Wii too. But I think if you distance yourself from what's overhyped you'll find a lot of great gems for this generation.

I hate Apple(almost all) products. I hate Macs, I hate OS, I hate iPhones, I hate their smug-like audience.
The basic iPod line were great. They were simple, large memory, a tad pricey but worth it.

Apple is a prime example of us not advancing, but wanting to do the same thing differently. OS Is a crap system that's pointless to work with. Their hardware is INSANELY overpriced. Funny how those who own a Mac Book Pro or whatever think they've made a great purchase when you've really spent £900+ on a crappy computer that can't be modified, has limitations and can't run the games you bought it for. But that's why people by it, for the label, not what's inside. You can buy a beast of a computer made to your liking for much less.

iPhones themselves are ridiculously expensive. What's the reason people buy iPhones (and Blackberries) because they have no idea how to spend smart or looking for a better purchase. If it doesn't have those brands it's not worth buying. Plus those who consider it a gaming platform are morons sorry. Watching Resident Evil and Street Fighter 4 being played on it is laughable. People don't want to admit, but they paid for limitations rather than an item worth buying.

You, sir, you are glorious. I entirely agree (even though I have a BlackBerry). Though I don't mind casual phone games if they just admit that they're casual fucking phone games and not an epic gaming odyssey.

On a side note, it's pretty interesting that screen resolutions have gotten better than the human eye these days. Wonder what's going to be the next techno-phone-wank issue.

Yeah the iPhone I admit has a sexy screen resolution and quality but that's pretty much it.
Have you seen Street Fighter 4 Volt on the iPhone. I remember back in the 90's we used to take the piss out of these crappy versions of the game. The arcade version of a game like Strider Arcade to Strider on the NES. Horrid, but for some reason the games on the iPhone are given a free pass because...it's on a handheld. I dunno if you've played Street Fighter 4 on the 3DS or Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on the PSVita but they are great. Same can be said for Resident Evil with it's crappy controls because touch screen only is apparently good method to controls games now...no.

I tried to play SF4 on a phone once. I swore profusely. I played SF4 on my 3DS... and got a gaming erection.

Yeah, I'm not saying phones are good for gaming. It's just interesting that the screen resolution has got as far as it can go. Wonder what's next.

(I still hate iPhones)

Stitch is one of the best Disney characters. Very underrated

YOLO is stupid

Walking is more enjoyable than driving

The Grand Theft Auto series is overrated. Especially IV

Comic books are much more enjoyable than novels
