    That is the funny part you see. You are sitting there in court smug as hell thinking they have nothing on you. Then the plaintiff laughs maniacally and says "this isn't the Libertarian dream, its the Libertarian nightmare" and whips out the NSA records of every post you have ever made on DP, including your admission in this thread. You are obviously found guilty and sentenced to be sodomized every Friday by a rolled up copy of EEOC employment guidelines wielded by Janet Napolitano.

    I wouldn't deny that is likely true. But that fact doesn't negate at all the equally true fact that yes, when a 50k a year female paralegal marries a 100k a year male banker and then quits her 50k job to raise kids, forever leaving the workforce, while that scenario does lead to a stable marriage, that scenario is also the grand exception for degreed women. Nobody is denying it's a great story. It is. What I am saying it is not possible for most degreed women. There are only so many degreed men earning more than degreed women and those small numbers in the future based on graduating rates will be even smaller, meaning that nice story will become rarer and rarer. The future is one of depressed female incomes, less high earning men, and less marriages. Companies will simply pay these women less, they will not meet the past mens high incomes to the future womens. We are already seeing this. The global market does not pay a woman as much as a man. So in the end, feminist based societies will simply decline to the face of still patriarchal societies.


    That said. The entire point is, the vast majority of degreed women will NEVER find Mr. 75-100k because they were NEVER going to. He didn't, doesn't exist on enough of a numerical level to be found. So what will, are degreed women making 50-70k a year doing? They're waiting for a 75-100k man that doesn't exist to pop up. Well. That's going to be a long wait, primarily because he isn't coming and wasn't. Equally important to this phenomena is the fact that these women cannot marry down.


    Consider. A degreed woman making 50-75k cannot feasibly marry and culturally integrate with a man making 40-60k for life. It isn't going to happen. The class structures are too different. Her whole life has been geared towards someone of even a higher class than her own. Not merely that, but no lower class, lower income man would actually marry her. Men marry down in class and income, not up. The men that she was demographically meant for will now not marry her, nor are they even willing to consider her for the above reasons, hence she has no options. Her own naturally available men will not marry her and the ultra high income sets of men she was geared for in life don't exist numerically speaking. The result we are seeing in the West is obvious and clear. These women have nowhere to go other than to keep on working. The irony of which makes them even less and less marriageable.

    Re: Do Degreed women have a harder time finding a Husband?

    I would imagine that education, power, and wealth do make it more difficult for a woman to find a suitable husband. Because so few men measure up to that. What woman would put up with a man who is so much less than she is? An uneducated and powerless woman can be and apparently is a suitable match for many wealthy and powerful men, but the reverse is not true. Of course, what this means is that the men that are unsuitable for these women are a) weak and stupid, and/or b) desire women who are weak and stupid. The former kind of men wouldn't likely be attracted or attractive to these women, and the latter kind are the kind of men who want trophy wives. Which aren't really trophies in any avenue besides being young and sexual.

    What successful woman would want to limit herself to only mattering in those few ways? What successful man would, either? Were it not for men who only value a woman for sexual purposes, the reverse would be true, that no one would settle for someone so far below themselves, economically or intellectually. So, I think the tradeoff of losing quantity for quality is one that works out in the educated woman's favor.

    Well since it's happening here, what's the difference?

    According to Pew Research, 69% of women with a college degree are married compared to 56% of women without a college degree. This means that women with degrees are more likely to be married than women without them.

    Answer: no.

    Answer: no.

    If a question and phenomena leading to that question has to be asked, it is likely the case.


    All the polls said Bush would lose his second term. So much for those polls. Considering that was an easily measurable thing, I'd say social phenomena polls are even less accurate, especially considering half the editors/authors are likely single degreed women (lol).

Raising children also requires resources obtained either through employment of the parents or through taxpayer subsidy. You are attempting to shift the financial burden onto taxpayers and other employers, ignoring the payment you owe for the benefits you receive from child rearing.
    Why should an employer care about any of that? None of that affects his business and none of that matters to him personally. The one thing that does however is this woman leaving work to spend time with sick children.
