    A feminazi myth. Wage gap disparity by virtue of gender is a statistical ploy that doesn't address personal choice.

    No, I am saying that they are horrible because they are greedy bitches who left their young kids at home alone while they traipsed off on trips halfway across the world. I am saying they are horrible because they abandoned their children entirely. I am saying they are horrible because they took their child support money, let the kids go without, and bought RVs to travel across country with, while the kids are home alone. I am saying they are horrible because they repeatedly told one child how ugly he was, and how fat he was, that now he has serious self-esteem issues, and another has commitment issues because he was abandoned at 12 years old. You can sit on your throne all you want, and look down at people who have been married more times than you think they should have been, but until you've walked a mile in somebody else's shoes, maybe you should shut the **** up. MmmK?

    You know, this entire thread is built around the premise that American women aren't worth marrying, if you could have a do-over. How is it that I can give two specific examples of what happened to my husband, yet you consider it racist, but it's OK to talk about American women being greedy, or being bitches, and it's OK.

    If I said all Korean women are bad, or evil bitches, you might have a leg to stand on with your "racist post reported" bull****, but the fact is that I gave two specific examples, in doing so to prove that there is good and bad in all women. All American women aren't greedy bitches, all Asian women aren't the end-all, be-all of wonderful, subservient women.

    Not at all. If it rewarded strictly intelligence and hard work that would be fine. The problem is that the way it is structured also rewards personality traits, such as the ability to sit calmly for long periods of time doing busy work, which are prevalent in little girls, but not little boys, who are more active. The system is largely run by women, and is generally structured around how women learn.

    You assume that content mastery is the only thing that should be measured.

    And here we have another example of your not understanding statistics, specifically the difference between #'s and %'s. Of course the # of older people will go up. The # of people in all age groups is projected to rise

    But I was off by by a number of years

    Just a point of fact - the conversion is more than 100 yen to the dollar, so 2,000,000 yen is about $20K/yr.
