    As a woman in NH, I will run to the nearest male Democrat for protection. What would we weak NH women do without those big hanking hunks of Democratic men to protect little old us from those big bad Republicans?

    Not me, bub.

    My mistake, he is just a rep. All the more reason to wonder why people care.
    You STILL don't get your IRONY!

    No, I don't care
    Yet...here you are....the IRONY!

    State lawmakers say stupid things all the time. But I was already here so I commented.
    And CARING to COMMENT...LOL.

    You took issue with the fact what he said is true (even if he said it poorly) so now I care about what you said.
    No, I took issue with the untruth of his statements.....and those who choose to defend him/his statements.

    With all due respect, I'm not really that concerned about my standing with anyone. It's just a forum.
    Well, there you are. I had thought you avoided stupid argument, and never imagined you to defend it.

    Yes, I told you I'm ignoring his position. That's the point.
    But, you are not, you cannot separate his argument from false use of "facts"....unless you are going to blindly ignore his objective.

    As I said, you discuss the planks without passing judgment on the platform. That's what I'm doing here.
    FFS, you are discussing platform if you are discussing "planks". Facts are NOT 'planks". Stop with the false parsing and misuse of language.

    I'm doing no such thing, and I've said multiple times now I'm not commenting on his platform. What's not reflecting well is the fact you don't seem to understand this very basic concept.
    This is BS, and Im going Godwin here, to support a plank of NAZI propaganda is a very dangerous thing to do.

    I never said it was
    You are IF YOU ARE USING IT AS A RATIONALE FOR NOT ENFORCING EQUAL PAY.


    What I said was that his statements were not incorrect, that there is definitely more pressure on the male to provide financially.
    In an argument to not enforce equal pay. It is being used as a rationale. It is a GENERALITY that creates a false description of US rates of pay. For single women, there is a REAL pressure to provide, not some imagined, vague "societal pressure".

    The only wiggling being done here is you, as you failed to answer my question. I'll ask it again:

    Are you disputing there is generally more societal pressure on the man to be the financial provider for the family?
    When you come up with a real description of "societal pressure", let me know.

    It is a BS argument, the economic pressure to provide is a real thing, and is more pronounced upon those with unequal pay.

    On what grounds is he making this statement though... where is the evidence that this is true???

    Men being more motivated by money doesn't broadly mean "men are more motivated".

    His contact information is online. You can email him and ask him. I wouldn't know. It's not news in NH.

    I feel the same way, and I have a vagina.... and I am straight...

    I have always loved money. When I was a kid, I had my grandpa invest my allowance. I am like my grandpa in the sense that I don't like spending or care much for materialism. I like high quality stuff. When I have a practical need to purchase something, I'l get high quality and expensive... but I don't spend money just for the materialism and consumption of it. I don't like to spend, but I like to make it and invest it.

    Yeah, as if he will get back to me. You could of have just said you didn't know of any study or research that provided evidence of his statement. No offense, but I am not going to waste my time in emailing him, so no thanks.
