This is a terrible video which shows the grueling conditions these men work in just to get a few dollars per day.

While watching this, I started noticing the hypocrisy of feminists. How come they don't fight to do jobs like these?

I saw this comment on the video and I realized other people can notice it right away too:

"Is this the male privilege feminists talk about? I wish feminists fought for equal representation in ship breaking yards, instead of equal representation in fortune 500 companies."

There's something deeply wrong with feminists saying that it's OK to leave the hard dirty jobs to the men while they only fight for the cushy air conditioned office jobs.

What are your thoughts on this?

I think you're adorable.

No point about it?

We can see why feminists wouldn't want to do the ship-breaking jobs. After all, they are complaining that air conditioning is sexist in office buildings now. Imagine the demands they would make at the shipyard if they can barely get through the work day in an office because the AC is a little too cold.

I am just trying to show people that feminism is a scam that was never about equality. I don't want men falling for it getting duped anymore. It's propaganda.

I am amazed that you can see videos like this and think gender rather than geography. Have you ever done a job like this, working in these sort of conditions? Come with me on my next trip to southeast asia and I'll hook you up. Philippines or Cambodia? Your choice. I have connections that'll land you a job like this in either.

I assure you, the women from the families these men are from are not sitting in offices complaining about the air conditioning being too much. Nor are they complaining about manspreading or mansplaining. I don't think you'd want to live the lives of the women who live in the location and at the economic status these men have. They very much DO need feminism. Not all feminism is the ridiculous stuff you see on buzzfeed or on this board.

Many are probably forced into prostitution.

Of course I don't want to work this job. That's the point! Feminists don't want to do the job either. But, I am not the one complaining that "women can do anything men can do!" while never fighting to do jobs like these.

You have yet to name a single man who wants to do this job as well. And I've heard men bitch about air conditioning as well, so what's your fucking point?

Why aren't the women there fighting to work alongside their husbands in the shipyard? Maybe these specific women believe that only men can do jobs like these? But, this wold be sexist.

One thing's for sure, there is no male privilege in Bangladesh.

Are women being blocked from doing this job? If not why would feminism be a factor? Also, whilst not exactly equivalent, but there is a push for more women in the coal mining industry. And I guarantee these women do more back breaking work than you will ever do in you lilly-white pussifed "I'm not smart enough to be an engineer so I'll do marketing instead" job.

Allegedly, of course.

You are asking why US women are not fighting to get work in Sri Lanka / India? I think India has laws about allowing foreigners to take work there... ironically. Male or female alike cannot just decide to move to India and work anywhere they want.

What women were fighting for in the 1960's was the right to choose to work in jobs that were considered "men's work" without being discriminated against. This type of job inclusive. Just because they CAN does not mean that they SHOULD want to.. it's the principle of equality that is undermined by the idea that IF they wanted to do that job they would be "allowed" to.
I don't want to be a nurse, or a secretary, or a typist, or a maid, or a waitress.. or any other job that historically was considered "women's work". It's not in my skillset or interest. But if I wanted to, I should not be discriminated against for choosing such a career.
Women in India have bigger problems than achieving complete equality in all industries.. like.. getting any equality in anything might be a good start for them over there.
Over here, women wanted to be "allowed" to succeed as doctors and lawyers and other things... being a ship-breaker was pretty far down the list and still is. Maybe coal miner would be a better comparison? How about the "mountain-mammas" of west virginia.. they tough enough to shipbreak for ya? https://www.100daysinappalachia.com/2017/02/miner-matriarch-coal-mining-women-west-virginia/

Because when I see TV commercials like the new ad from Indeed.com which shows a woman being passed over for a promotion for VP of the company and the commercial implies she was passed over because she's a woman and not because she isn't qualified enough. Then "interview request" from another company shows up on her phone and she gets happy. Seeing commercials like this in America about the "struggle of women" while having knowledge of the conditions other people work in in other countries makes it seem like one big joke.

How many women did you see breaking the ship apart in the video I posted?

I counted a big goose egg.

I never said they can't do these jobs, just that they never seem to want to do the tough work. Those mountain mama's you posted are all well and good, but I guarantee they laugh at women complaining about the AC in their office buildings.

White women in America are the most privileged group of people in the world, and they still want more.

Well, at least you've moved up from the YouTube comments section.

Progress?

I'll send you some magical brownies if you can link to one feminist that said:

Basically that means anyone in the USA with a job that is marginally better than sn awful one somewhere else in the world should be content. I wonder how you’d react if your employer gave that rational after cutting your compensation.

Unless you can show women wanted those jobs but were denied them due to their gender, you’ve got nothing but rotten goose eggs.

Because the majority of them do not fight for those rights. They go to the women's march and wear stupid pink pussy hats instead.

What I was pointing out is that male privilege has been dismantled. If it was only men who got the cushy office jobs and the women had the back breaking labor jobs that the majority of men do, then you can argue men are privileged. But, since the majority of back breaking labor jobs go to men, there is no such thing as male privilege. It's a fantasy concocted by feminists.

Working for low pay in crappy conditions does not equal privilege. It's the complete opposite.

You saw an ad, therefore feminism is "a scam that was never about equality." Totally makes sense.

Link to one, just one. One teeny, tiny link to someone that said what I quoted you saying above. Stop moving the goalpost and creating strawmen.

Can you show that the pay in these bsck breaking jobs is less than or equal to the “cushy” jobs in the same area? I ask because women fought for back breaking jobs in construction and mining because they were higher paying than the cushy jobs.

Yes, a lot of feminists want superiority over men, not equality. We can see this in pop culture everywhere. The stereotypical, "hah you can't go out tonight because your wife said so??! She's got your balls!!!" And men sit there and take it. Women have become known as "the boss" in today's modern family. It's known as the emasculation of men.

I am amazed that you can see videos like this and think gender rather than geography. Have you ever done a job like this, working in these sort of conditions? Come with me on my next trip to southeast asia and I'll hook you up. Philippines or Cambodia? Your choice. I have connections that'll land you a job like this in either.

Of course I don't want to work this job. That's the point! Feminists don't want to do the job either. But, I am not the one complaining that "women can do anything men can do!" while never fighting to do jobs like these.

I don't see you fighting to do jobs like these either. I don't see the double standard you speak of. Now, show us some men in your own country working tough jobs and you may have a point.

I assure you, the women from the families these men are from are not sitting in offices complaining about the air conditioning being too much. Nor are they complaining about manspreading or mansplaining. I don't think you'd want to live the lives of the women who live in the location and at the economic status these men have. They very much DO need feminism. Not all feminism is the ridiculous stuff you see on buzzfeed or on this board.

Why aren't the women there fighting to work alongside their husbands in the shipyard?

Some of them are.

One thing's for sure, there is no male privilege in Bangladesh.

Think again. Male and female privilege are everywhere in pretty much every society. Life is especially bad for women in areas like Bangladesh.

If they started complaining about the economic conditions as demonstrated in the op, then you'd complain that they are all Marxists! They simply can't win against your male privilege to criticize them no matter what, can they?

I know it is bad for women in Bangladesh. But, feminists don't seem to care. Islamic countries treat women like rag dolls and feminists openly embrace Islam in the U.S.

American feminists do not care about being consistent. If they were, they'd be condemning Islam the same way we conservatives do because of its barbaric treatment of women. But feminists spit on us and fight for Islamic rights in the U.S. This is why a lot of men have given up on them.

It's in every sitcom, every family commercial, even real life. I've seen countless men say, "My wife said I can't hang out tonight" and men make fun of them asking where their balls are. Imagine if a man told his wife, "you're not going out tonight!" The woman would be like, "Stop trying to control me! I'm not your property! I have my own mind!" But for some reason, it's perfectly OK for them to treat men like their property.

Some court is going to decide that cashiers should be paid the same because it's supposedly "comparable work". :rolleyes:

What are your thoughts on this?

Men don't have a monopoly on privileges. Traditionally women have had quite a few, and still do, especially in some societies. Generally and historically not having to do or being expected to do very dirty and/or dangerous jobs in order to make money (often to support a family) is one type of female privilege.

Those are my thoughts. I haven't read the whole thread so maybe someone else has made the same point.

At least you admit it. There was a study done recently that showed conservative women are happier than liberal women. Probably has to do with the fact that raising a family is more rewarding than working long hours.

Psst...this is the part where you cite your claim.

It would be silly and one-sided not to, imo.

I'm sure that for some, it is. Equality of opportunity would mean that those that it suited could opt for it without being criticised or pressured.

A citation for that study would be useful though.

Thanks. If, say, the findings of that study are accurate and reflect a general truth, then I would be good with that. I would only want women who prefer otherwise to also be free to choose not to be conservative, also without criticism or pressure.

Interesting to note that progressive men seem to be happier than conservative men, according to that. Are you a conservative man? If so, have you considered that on average your chances of being happier if you were more progressive might be higher? Though I would say the same thing again as above. If you personally are happier being conservative in gender terms, great.

I do, by the way, agree that sometimes, some feminists criticise conservative women unfairly. Ideally, it would be a free choice.

At least you admit it. There was a study done recently that showed conservative women are happier than liberal women. Probably has to do with the fact that raising a family is more rewarding than working long hours.

Psst...this is the part where you cite your claim.

Here is the actual study, not the bastardized description in your link.

Conservatives are progressive. We are just not progressive in the way of , "Everything is sexist, racist, and the fault of male privilege in the patriarchy!"
Fox News had a liberal on who was arguing that math is racist. This is looney tunes.

So the study seems to be mainly about religion specifically, not necessarily conservatism generally, or gender conservatism. Though I imagine there's at least a positive correlation between being religious and being gender conservative.

I agree that PC and woke can go too far (that said, there may be ways in which maths might have a slight racist aspect, depending, I don't know because I haven't studied the claim).

But, many liberals would not say such things. So you can't reasonably equate liberal with that.

What are your thoughts on this?

Men don't have a monopoly on privileges. Traditionally women have had quite a few, and still do, especially in some societies. Generally and historically not having to do or being expected to do very dirty and/or dangerous jobs in order to make money (often to support a family) is one type of female privilege.

Those are my thoughts. I haven't read the whole thread so maybe someone else has made the same point.

A study? Or a survey?
Or youtube comments?
Links?

Conservatives agree with women working. We agree (with few exceptions) with gay rights. We just don't want to call everything sexist and racist. That's stupid.

For example, we want blacks to be able to vote for anybody they want. But, when a black person votes for a conservative, leftists call them "Uncle Tom" or "race traitor" or "stick with your own kind." This is ironic coming from leftists who say race doesn't matter, yet they constantly try to keep blacks as a hive mind voting Democrat.

We also don't agree with progressives that certain races should get special treatment just for being a certain race.

Steven Miller and Donald Trump would disagree with you.

I don't see Trump advocating anything against blacks. Black unemployment is at the lowest point in history.

Besides, Louis Farrakhan is a Democrat and he's a bigoted black supremacist. Does this mean everyone will abandon the Democrat party because they have Farrakhan in it? Of course not.

You think that black people are the only race.

I've heard "Race is a social construct. It means nothing," by leftists. Then if they vote conservative they say, "Why do they hate their own people?"

But if race is a social construct, then black people are not a "different kind of people." They are just as much white people's people as they are Asian people's people. This is where leftists end up going mask off. They say race is a social construct while maintaining that "black people should stick to their own kind."

I suppose it would be like asking, "Why don't blue eyed people just stick with blue eyed people?" Pretty insulting, right?

You know that's exactly what you do, right? You find some random anonymous person off youtube, then equate what they say with the entire left.
