“When a man set up a fake internet dating profile pretending to be female, he set out to prove a point about how easy women have it when searching for an online match. However, his experiment backfired when – just two hours later – he was forced to delete his account because of an ‘onslaught’ of unwanted attention.

“So I made the OkCupid profile of the Worst Woman on Earth, hoping to prove that there exists an online dating profile so loathsome that no man would message it.” Or: the only proof you will ever need that harassment is not a compliment.

“Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their classrooms. They usually consider that they give equal amounts of attention to girls and boys, and it is only when they make a tape recording that they realize that boys are dominating the interactions.

Leading Men Age, But Their Love Interests Don’t: the graphs.

Pregnant Italian woman in the UK for a work trip, has a panic attack (that she normally takes medication to control, but like 99% of medications, you’re not supposed to take it while pregnant), social workers forcibly sedate her, give her a C-section, and have the baby adopted by a UK family. Didn’t even allow the woman’s family or friends to take care of the kid for her. This is insane.

“But it’s worse to leave a patient without medical care because doctors are afraid of violating the law.”

“In a landmark study, one researcher found that women make the same number of jokes as men — when they’re children. But around age 6, something changes; the number of jokes girls make decreases, and it never evens out again.”
