    I'm not. All I did was state a fact.

    Just one specific place where it is true?

    Most places that aren't in or very near cities and most women over 40 or so.

    I mean, what, are you looking for the name of a town in Iowa somewhere? They don't break these things down by town. They send out a bunch of guys with clipboards and then crunch the numbers.

    I was hoping for some proof, yes. Actually, it hasn't been true at any significant, widespread level for years. Too many lawsuits, too many laws against it, plus EEOC offices looking for business in every state.

    Life is not about what one WANTS to do, Lursa. It never has been. Life is about what one SHOULD do. I didn't WANT to crawl out of that bed at 5:00 this morning to come to work. I don't get an option in that unless I can find another job with equivelant benefits and pay that has a later start time for work.

    "Fifty years after the Equal Pay Act became law, American women working full-time are paid just 77 cents to the dollar compared to their male counterparts. A significant wage gap also persists throughout New York.  In New York City, a female full-time worker in the for-profit sector earns only 71.5 cents for every dollar her male counterpart earns. Although the statewide wage gap of 82.5% is smaller than the national average, workers in non-metropolitan areas still earn 23% less than their counterparts in the city.  Due to the wage gap, full-time working women in New York collectively lose more than $22,340,000,000 each year. If the wage gap is closed, working women in New York and their families would have enough money for more than a year’s worth of food; 4.4 months of mortgage and utility payments; 9 additional months of rent; 3 extra years of family health insurance premiums; or more than 2,000 gallons of gas. "

    How can someone be so incredibly ignorant as to write off over 150 million women as potential mates - almost all of whom they have never even met - strictly on the basis of their present country of residence?

    Obviously someone who is capable of demeaning people from sentient individuals into lumps of insignificant, human flesh.

    When one looks at the statistical analysis of that population, it can be very easy to write it off. Back in college, I did a very basic analysis of my chances of finding my "perfect woman" based on data about height, hair color, eye color, and other racial/physical characteristics. Then, factoring that about 0.25% of the female population might come close enough to my philosophical viewpoint, I figured out that there were roughly 25,000 women in the United States (in 1994) who even had a CHANCE of being my wife; at which point I basically gave up on ever finding anyone. When I did finally find a woman who met my philosophical and ideological criteria (which was most important to me), she was of a very different racial and economic background than what my "perfect woman" calculation had been done with.

    I'm extremely happy, and almost giddy over the fact that he's written off my daughters.

    'Racial' characteristics?

    You had a 'racial' criteria?
