Men's RightsWomen are fighting to get paid 'period leave' off work to cope with period pain. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

This is this article in question

Summary: Apparently women would like to spend 15% of their life getting paid for sitting at home whilst their twats bleed.


Body: Nothing new here really. This sort of thing is to be expected. Remember, everything western women fight for isn't in the name of equality or fairness, it all comes down to having as little responsibilty as possible and being a perpetual victim.

When I read the comments I w

Hey at least then the 77% wage gap would be real lol

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 47 points48 points  (0 children)

You think it would be unpaid, shitlord!?!?

[–]sirZofSwagger 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This was my first thought too

[–]gabilromariz 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I haven't laughed out loud at comments in a long time, thanks

[–]ghebert001 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's already real it's just not due to discrimination. Women's studies majors whine about not making as much as engineers...that's what you get when you choose a major that has 0 value.

[–]Shameless_King 312 points312 points [recovered]

Why not let women stay home all the time?

Or is that too 1800's for some people to understand it works better and everyone is happy.

[–]barmaleo2 155 points156 points  (107 children)

They'll probably demand it soon, with a mandatory paycheck

[–]Crazy_K9 41 points42 points  (14 children)

Sadly I think you're right.
How many times have you heard, "being a stay at home mom is the hardest job in the world!"?
How long until one one them decides they should be paid to stay at home and watch the view?
Pay with benefits of course.

[–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (1 child)

They put the damn "The View" on TV in the breakroom.

I finally figured out the password for the comcast box, and blocked the entire channel.

"being a stay at home mom is the hardest job in the world!"

In the words of bill burr, any job that you can do in your pijamas IS NOT HARD

[–]foldpak111 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Ehh, it depends. If you're a quant or a PhD level programmer then yeah, it's a hard job you can do in jammies. I get it, though.

[–]ether_reddit 25 points26 points  (3 children)

How many times have you heard, "being a stay at home mom is the hardest job in the world!"?

People confuse "exhausting" with "hard". Being a stay-at-home parent is tedious, takes away all your free time and energy, and can sap you of the will to live. But it's easy -- a lot of it just involves being there all the time to get food into the kid or prevent them from killing themselves. It's so easy anyone can do it. This is why so many young women love getting pregnant and raising kids -- it's the only worthwhile thing they might ever get to do with their lives, and they get tons of external validation for doing so. If they didn't have kids, they'd have to actually get an education and make a living some other way, and that's a lot harder.

[–]Attentive1 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Here's the funny thing:

The washer and drier do the actual washing of clothes, you just have to put the clothes in and put them away when you're done.The dishwashing machine does the actual work. Most of the food we buy is processed and ready to eat or you just add the ingredients and are done in 20 minutes. No need to learn how to cook. The instructions are on the label.

House work is easy! You either manage your time and resources or you're a slob. The most important part of being a stay at home parent is making sure that their children are educated and taught how to make decisions. At work, attendance is the foundation upon which your work product is based. If you don't even have that then you're unreliable.

Also, why can't they take a regular sick day? Why does this need to be broken out?

[–]the_number_2 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And it takes up... GASP, probably about 8 hours per day of solid, actual work, just like the rest of the world.

I think that is the point of the basic income movement. Useless people not having to work. With the amount of time I spend fixing screw ups, I wonder if it would work out better...

[–]TheRedStoic 8 points9 points  (4 children)

From what I understand, basic income (a quite misguided concept), Is actually rooted in technological progression and obsolescence of manual jobs.

I see your point though. Just clarifying, though I reserve the right to be wrong. "maybe I've studied the wrong sources? It happens man."

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (3 children)

The Basic Income argument now is mostly a technological issue. Machines are replacing humans at a faster and faster rate. The next big one we will see over the next 5-15 years is pretty much all professional drivers replaced by AI drivers with perhaps some security guard on board but likely not.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's also the largest industry in the western world by a large margin. Transportation industry is the #1 employer in the US.

[–]alpha_n3rd 27 points28 points  (34 children)

if basic income will keep addicts from robbing us I'm for it

[–]1whatsazipper 8 points9 points  (1 child)

What also works is a shotgun.

If junkies pose a persistent criminal threat, put fentanyl in the local supply to eradicate them.

That may be extreme and I'm not really serious, but I don't think you're going to be able to convince people to fund their drug habits through taxes.

[–]WhatIs_ThisFaggotry 16 points16 points [recovered]

Useless people not having to work.

This is the main reason why i support basic income. I've wasted enough time and money in capacitation, training people who don't want to learn, interviewing people who couldn't give two shits about the work they're doing and just want a paycheck. Then there's the money wasted on careless mistakes made by employees who don't really want to be there.

[–]hhamama66 9 points10 points  (2 children)

My neighbor used to be a superintendent for a construction company. He told me a story about how one guy was drilling into dry wall in a computer lab had no prior experience and started filling a room full of computers with dust without a second thought. Long story short, he destroyed $40,000 worth of computers. That was the only day he showed up

[–]MrOake 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Even though he is dumb, you can't allow a guy with no prior experience to be running around site drilling without supervision. I'm sure the foreman sent him on that task and should be the one held responsible.

[–]jason-funk 11 points12 points  (1 child)

when 99.99999999999999% of companies look to nepotism over skill /drive, you're objectively a moron to expect people to want more than a paycheck from a dead end job

[–]Dren_Fetter 13 points14 points  (29 children)

It is noone's obligation to fix screwed up people, nor is it anyone's obligation to give these people a universal income for nothing. Edit: obligation for clarity.

[–]Bic13bic 9 points10 points  (22 children)

I meant fixing their work. I have given up on fixing the source if the rotten work.

[–]Dren_Fetter 5 points6 points  (21 children)

I just don't understand the idea behind universal basic income for useless people. Why is it the obligation of the community to provide for the useless or incompetent? If a person is completely able to swim or get out of the pool and demands floaties because they don't want to swim I say let them drown.

[–]Bic13bic 18 points19 points  (1 child)

I think the most rational arguments for it are the coming mass automation of much of the work force. Ironically, the people that are proponents of basic income are for looser borders. You can't have a welfare state and open borders.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Mass automation is going to really change how society views working. I don't know what purpose skill less people will serve aside from child raising.

[–]TogiBear 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It's cheaper to pay them just enough so they "barely get by" rather than deal with the costs that come with crime, healthcare, jails, homelessness, means-tested welfare, etc.

They're only useless because we're holding poverty over their heads, thereby forcing them into work that they are simply not suited for.

If you want to save money down the road, UBI is the answer here. Sadly, some people lack the ability to forego short term solutions for better long term ones.

Consumerist societies need consumers. The more consumers you have the more local/global businesses thrive. As job scarcity increases we will be forced to give people money to survive (and participate in the economy), and that's OK. A post-scarcity society is what we should be striving for.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

isn't the argument that a fixed income lead to more positive outcomes than poverty though? If wages stagnate and jobs become scarcer, how can we hope to prop up the economy and encourage consumption? I dunno, that's not even taking into account the host of societal ills and other public health issues that directly result from an impoverished populace. Ideally, we woudlnt need a fixed income, but with the route were going there just wont be enough well paying work to go around, if it's not that way already

[–]Endorsed Contributoralways-be-closing 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Wait, but let's take this further.

They'll get lonely.

They'll want some dick every now and again.

Legalize male prostitution!

Their fathers will likely desire that some of those male prostitutes who've figured out how to make extra cash by playing women stick around.

Maybe he can pay them to simply stick with his daughter?

[–]TrevWest 10 points11 points  (1 child)

The Government issuing welfare checks to single mothers when the dad stops paying child support is the next step in the process of idiocy.

We're past that, my mother double dipped and got government assistance and child support from my dad.

You're too slow, my friend! They're already demanding this! At least some feminists, i've read an article, but unfortunately now i can't find it anymore, it was linked right here some months ago, about feminists posting a manifesto, in which, between other things, they claimed nobody should have to work to get a salary.

[–]surfjihad 2 points3 points  (0 children)

a mandatory paycheck

Like alimony?

[–]Chrience 46 points47 points  (2 children)

If they stayed home all the time, they wouldn't earn money to buy on shoes and feel like an independent wimin, like the television constantly tells them to.

[–]Shameless_King 16 points16 points [recovered]

Funny how a lot of women complain all the time about having to work and would rather marry rich.

I guess it goes to show how much power the media has on people.

[–]Sementeries 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Better be able to cook a full course meal.

[–]AngelGlove 3 points3 points [recovered]

How does it work better? You either have to have a big income so you can live your life normally with a woman that is staying home. Not many men have these kind of jobs. Or you have to lower your standards(smaller house, less dinner at resturants, you get my point, cut unnecessary things from your life)

But that doesn't really work with human nature. If you have the standards like: Some place to sleep, water, food. And then you get to stage 2 and you get a job, a car, warm water. This ladder keeps going up and you get comfortable with what you have. Then you wont suddenly just give up on all that and lets say go down a stage or two since you will always crave more.

I have seen this pyramid stage as a picture somewhere but I can't seem to find it. If someone knows what I'm talking about be so kind and link it here.

But please tell me how letting women stay home would work better in todays society.

[–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (7 children)

Women entering the workforce hurt wages for everyone, resulting in an economy that damn near requires two incomes to stay afloat. It has made men and women less happy, and has encouraged a society of wage slaves.

Used to be a single income was more than enough for a small family. But when the pool of potential workers is doubled, jobs are spread thinner and pay less.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Economies of scale is still a thing. Even a woman can have great productive power, hell even kids were good factory workers.

Living costs are artificially held high by the mortgage system to keep people working.

[–]bluedrygrass 8 points9 points  (2 children)

...and men have to work more, to balance women's less productivity

[–][deleted] 2 points2 points

[–]Ayleir 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What you are referring to is maslow's hierarchy of needs.

Basically you start at the bottom craving just food water and sex. Whenever all the needs of one stage of the pyramid are met you move up the ladder and you crave the next set of needs, with self actualisation being the highest.

Arguably, sex might not be on the lowest level, as even sexless virgins have higher cravings than just the second pyramid step.

[–]Shameless_King 9 points9 points [recovered]

The same way it worked before women were allowed to work.

[–]ColdEiric 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why not let women stay home all the time?

And they can stay at home, without any cismale visiting them! EVER!

If a SJW tells everyone that women can't hack it without special rights and privileges they call her an "activist".

Give them time. Your feminists just knows they can't go as full retard as their american counterparts... yet.

[–]HAESisAMyth 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'm not in the least bit surprised to read the article and find

  • The company is called "Coexist" or some other leftist bullshit

  • The company has 24 female employees and 7 men

  • They're all using imacs (which tells me they're probably not doing serious work)

  • they're all dressed unprofessionally

Odds are this is a make-work company, probably a non-profit, that creates zero fucking value.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 80 points81 points  (5 children)

Men should get a 25% payraise for having to deal with women going mental once a month, every month.

Every woman is a man's equal! That's why they deserve special treatment, "positive" discrimination, higher pay, lower barrier to entry, extra help, the right to leave work at any time to pursue a personal project (having children), and now the right to be paid to bleed.

[–]Lucifer_The_Unclean 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Exactly. My biggest problem with these movements is the hypocrisy. Just come out and say you're weaker than men and so you deserve special treatment.

[–]1Entropy-7[🍰] 14 points15 points  (3 children)

When I was a trial attorney I knew a clutch of women who were my equal. Some were part time divas and others were like HB3s who had only their career. However, they could roll in the court room or the board room.

Back when I was a soldier, the powers that be decided women should be equal and it turned into a complete, fucking nightmare.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 19 points20 points  (2 children)

the powers that be decided women should be equal

Equality when they are actually equal is fine.

Equality when they are nowhere-near-fucking-equal is ridiculous.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Women are not even mentally fit to be soldiers. The psychological requirements should preclude them even for consideration.

Testing and training 100 women produces MAYBE 2-3 unreliable soldiers of the same standards as men.

Testing and training 100 men produces upwards of 40-50 reliable soldiers at the base standard.

Its a complete waste of time and money to pander to women. Reject their eligibility for economics as a reason alone.

[–]yomo86 34 points35 points  (0 children)

I don't feel allegiance to my country either. Why would I? It's a feminist piece of shit.

[–]bluedrygrass 8 points9 points  (2 children)

"don't feel any allegiance to their country,"

This would actually be a positive thing, with today's western countries.

Do you see it in a positive way, you, redpiller, to feel allegiance for a country that betrayed you, that is always trying to fuck you over in new ways, controlling every last conversation and action of you, trying to emasculate you day after day?

If there's a thing i noticed, is that the more emasculated and weak a man is, the more a statalist he'll be. Women of course are all pro-nanny state.

[–][deleted] 47 points47 points [recovered]

/u/nerdlift had a great comment in another thread saying 'When you have to swim against the current you get stronger than those who swim with the current.'

Women can't be expected to truly succeed if they continue getting things handed to them without having to work for it. In order to find true, independent success you need to be able to cope with setbacks. If you have any easy life you will crumble as soon as life throws you a curve ball when you try to make it on your own. Having these new initiatives pop up are going to make it even less likely for any female to become truly great at anything.

Men have already built society and invented almost everything since the dawn of our civilization. They were able to do that since they knew how to cope with pain, suffering, grinding and growing as a person.

At the end of the day, this hurts feminism. It hurts because it will make women even more lazy and passive than they already are. How can you expect men to accept women are strong and independent when you're encouraging them to sit at home and not work for anything?

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet 22 points23 points  (4 children)

Women can't be expected to truly succeed if they continue getting things handed to them without having to work for it.

Women don't want to succeed. They want all of the credit for being strong, safe, and self-sufficient without all of the messy effort that goes along with it.

Having these new initiatives pop up are going to make it even less likely for any female to become truly great at anything.

Yes - and they're perfectly okay with that. So long as men are making sure that the walls to their private Disneyland remain standing, women are happy to go on fooling themselves.

At the end of the day, this hurts feminism.

Feminism isn't a real cause, and it's goal isn't to make women more independent. It's a strategy for getting free shit.

  1. Find something you want for free and demand it.

  2. If someone refuses, call them sexist or biased for denying it to you.

  3. Keep making noise until enough women complain that it becomes a public issue.

  4. Wait for some obliging male to succumb to his protective instinct and give it to you. Then go to (1).

[–]cariboo_j 2 points3 points  (3 children)

[–]nerdlift 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the mention! I will not claim ownership to that saying as I am pretty sure I heard it somewhere else on a podcast. It is essential to self-esteem (in the true sense of the word as Nathaniel Branden would have us use it) to feel competent in your abilities to rise and meet challenges that present themselves to you. I try not to make individual judgments as to the challenges men and women face but when you look at society and the way things are trending, it is something to keep in mind when you are dealing with people who come across as just very large and very old children.

[–]1rife_omeqa 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Off topic but that is paraphrased from a quote by Joseph Stalin.

"In the Soviet army it takes more courage to retreat than advance."

Ironic that the original quote used courage to refer to men making choices when faced with death by firing squad but now is aptly used in regards to professional victims being victims.

[–]1Entropy-7[🍰] 37 points38 points  (6 children)

Not all women are endless whiners about how much their pussy hurts. I spent a decade in the military and found 2 - fucking two - women who I could respect as a peer. I also met several women who knew their place, as medics and log wogs and REMFs and I have a certain respect for that. But only two who I could consider my peers. Even then, neither could do my job as a military engineer.

[–]RP-on-AF1 13 points14 points  (2 children)

In my four years I met one, so that seems to be about the going rate.

[–]1Entropy-7[🍰] 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Seems so. I don't hate women, I just have a keen awareness of their limitations. Women can't "hump"; they can't put their own weight into a ruck sack and carry it all over hell's half acre. They can't lift a hundred pounds over their head on an ongoing basis. They just can't do what a moderately fit man can do.

yeah the other female software engineer there was like "I'm awesome because vagina". She would bitch endlessly at me (like go to management) for not explaining simple things in an email because she's too lazy to google it "you should put it in there!" she couldn't figure anything out and got men to make all her decisions for her.

[–]aa223 10 points11 points  (4 children)

It looks like women are beginning to be so expensive that even the imaginary wage gap couldn't make them cheaper. Soon companies will want to hire exclusively men because we were made to work.

So I hope that companies acquiesce to the hambeast's demands of getting paid more because eventually it will be akin to building pressure inside a container. Eventually the pressure will be too much and the container will burst.

This will also adversely affect women because there are women who are willing to work hard but now those women will be lumped in with the hambeasts who want this change. Either way I'm fine with it because in the long run it is our victory. That and our greatest strength is to see the long term ramifications while these radicals only see the here and now.

[–]MakeEmSayAyy 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Sexual harassment lawsuits, period leave, maternity leave, general whining and combine that with the fact that they've been given everything their entire lives and have a huge sense of entitlement and don't generally work as hard as men, and who the fuck would hire women? haha

[–]bluedrygrass 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You're grossly underestimating the betaness of most bosses. Already now, generally a woman isn't hired because of what she does, but because of what she rapresents, what she looks like, the sound of her voice.

Women never works as hard as their male counterparts. Even in an office environment, if there's any sudden physical task to do, as menial as to change the water balloon or pick up the box of coffee filters, men are the ones that will do that. Female will just watch you like thinking "go ahead mule, that's your task and you know it".

Women were never fired or paid less for their incompetence or less productivity than their male counterparts, and they will continue to be treated like that.

A law will pass to pay xomynx "period leave"? Fine. We'll just raise taxes a couple percentual points, to give the companies as compensation. Everybody wins, except the males, but they don't count in this gay society, so, everybody wins.

[–]aa223 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like I said, even if the imaginary pay gap was real women are too much of a liability to hire over a man.

[–]toneroma 8 points9 points  (7 children)

Most young men now have no frame and low testosterone.

Haha, you lost me here, man. Welcome to the bandwagon. This is absolutely not true.

Try this:

We did not include men 20-29 years old in the prevalence estimates because so few had low testosterone and the reasons for their low levels are more likely due to congenital hypogonadism rather than due to aging.

From here.

Fewer than 2% of men in the 20-29 age range have low T. This study looked at almost 1400 men and the mean testosterone level only started to border "low" in the 70+ age group.

People need to stop peppering their posts with parroted claims about there being a low T epidemic causing a feminization epidemic.

[–]xfLyFPS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Consider the fact that the testosterone levels to be diagnosed with low T have decreased. What was low testosterone 25 years ago is now considered average by today's standards.

[–]bluedrygrass 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You know what he meant. Maybe we don't have less testosterone biologically, but mentally? Absolutely. You call the faggots that stroll around wearing bags, listening to lady caca, refreshing their social medias with "yup, just had lunch. Yay :-)))) !" and being offended by the most stupid craps, while being completely passive to the real infuriating things, "men"? They're pathetic excuses of them.

Two major studies have confirmed the phenomenon, one in U.S. men and another in Danish men. In the U.S. study, the total testosterone levels measured in men’s blood dropped approximately 22% between 1987 and 2004.

[–]throwaway_groupie 18 points19 points  (4 children)

There's no way we should get paid leave for our periods, that's silly.

Periods can suck pretty bad, I always feel like I have the flu. If the men in charge want to help, just make sure their workplace healthcare covers Midol, a currently inexpensive over-the-counter pill that gets rid of most of the symptoms of my menstruation (pain, moodiness, bloating, etc). Before I had healthcare I bought it for 20 bucks at CVS, and now with my new insurance it's free. Most Obamacare plans cover this basic medicine already, some work place insurances don't. A much cheaper solution.

[–]1Claude_Reborn 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah but then they don't get one week off a month, of paid leave.

Fuck, that's 12 weeks a year, on top of any normal leave they get.

That's exactly why they want it. They want to work less, and get paid the same for it.

[–]gabilromariz 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I was coming to say the same thing. Most women with a sliver of common sense will deal with that without any help and while getting paid for those supplies would be nice, it's definitely not necessary.

I guess it would be the same as since you require men to come to work clean shaven, chip in for the razors or something silly like that. The workforce is supposed to be made up of adults, who can take care of themselves

[–]1Entropy-7[🍰] 9 points10 points  (3 children)

That is funny. Maybe we should have 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the aft to play fucking CS or LOL because that is in our nature.

[–]ManInAFunnyRedSheet 7 points8 points  (2 children)

10 minutes for LOL? More like 1 hour

[–]1Entropy-7[🍰] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Split the difference: spend 30 minutes on LOL and the other half an hour doing cold approaches.

I was under the impression feminism was about equal pay for equal work.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

If you look at the things they lobby for, at its core it's actually about more pay for less work. There are actually many feminist initiatives that are about getting paid for no work, and the pay is based on credentials given out by a female-biased education system. Maternity leave, stress leave, mental health leave etc. There's such a thing supposedly as Paternity leave, but these types of "leaves" are overwhelmingly used by women. Now they're trying to get period leave. Ridiculous.

"I was talking to someone the other day and they said if it were men who had periods then this policy would have been brought in sooner."

I was laughing pretty hard until this, then I admit I got a little annoyed. When exactly do men EVER get paid time off? I had to leave work to go to an Urgent Care unit once because I had really bad stomach pains (turns out I had a virus and was constipated), think I was paid for that time? Fuck no.

Other than that, this is just women removing themselves from the workforce and allows men to get something done during their break from the cackling hens.

[–]Endorsed Contributorleftajar 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Oh, Liberals. They really, really don't understand incentives.

"Period leave," on top of maternity leave, creates another incentive against the hiring of women. It's almost like they want to create things to complain about.

God. As if there aren't enough drains on the economy as-is. PERIOD pain? Out of the guys in this thread, how many of you wake up on an almost daily basis so stressed about work that it basically gives you the shits, and you god damn go anyways?

Period pain. Guffaw.

[–]SecularNotLiberal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I can't believe any women would support this; can't they see that it's not in their better interests? It gives employers a good reason not to hire a woman. Gee, do you want to hire someone who can just not show up to work for a week out of the month if they are bleeding and you can't fight it, or will you hire someone who can't do that because he lacks the ability to menstruate?

As someone who does menstruate, I actually used to have a lot of pain and problems with it. What did I do? I went on the Pill to manage it. I'm great now. If you're having debilitating pain (of any sort) that makes it so you can't work 15%-25% of the time, you need to seek medical help. Or if you're that disabled, then file for disability. Don't make it worse for the rest of us women who can handle ourselves by demanding this ridiculous "right".

[–]staszed 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sure, let's give it to them. And every time a guy pops a boner he should get an hour off as to not become uncomfortable.

[–]Blacklabellogic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The funny thing is that every entitlement women get, makes them worse hires.

  • Sexual harassment laws and allegations are at a point where professors and leaders are scared to mentor a female, or even be alone in a room with a female.

  • "Diversity quotas" make women look bad when they lead to unqualified hires.

  • Maternity leave for one gender is a cost to the company.

  • "Period leave" would add costs.

So they are making the case for why women should not work.

Just call in sick FFS! Don't they already get paid fucking sick leave? When my body is FUBAR I call in sick! I don't give any reason I just say "I'm too sick to come to work today". I don't tell them what's coming out of every hole.

Do I get "morning wood that won't go away" days so I can stay home and bang my wife? (Actually I do heh heh heh sometimes I love my job)

[–]gabilromariz 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I guess it would be unfair for healthy people to let those sick days go to waste

[–]Words-Are-Wind 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Letting sick days go to waste is a great way to make extra cash though. As a consultant who does 3 month projects that come with 2 weeks of sick days, I can make like an extra 8-10 grand by not using any of them all year.

[–]gabilromariz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I guess it depends on how you're paid

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Normal women complain way too much about period cramps.

While some women have their uterus growing all over their organs, and all those cells react during their period. Yeah, that shit hurts. Your stomach hurting a little is not a reason to bitch so much. Wanting someone to kill you because it feels like you're in labor is.

[–]LimboSystem 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But wait. Wimin are totally not affected in any way by their periods and suggesting otherwise is misogyny.

[–]LarryLove 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For a myriad of reasons, women used to spend their periods away from the tribe. http://lostwomynsspace.blogspot.com/2011/06/menstrual-huts-ponulu.html

I found this quote most interesting

"The Dogon (men) use knowledge of the timing of menstruation in relation to the timing of copulation to make paternity assessments, so that men can avoid making any investment in genetically unrelated offspring. This is essential in a culture in which inheritance is restricted to the patrilineal lines. "

Time to bring back the menstrual hut. Give them chocolate and mydol but give them wifi too. No reason these woman can't work from home at this time.

[–]reddeadredemption2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

wasn't this one of the original arguments to keep women out of the workforce and army by men lol... We pretty much told them this would happen. but no, women claimed their periods wouldn't prevent them from working and that it was absurd to even insinuate their periods would hinder their work. women havn't been in the workforce a 100 years and they are already looking for a way out.

[–]1PantsonFire1234 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Makes no sense.

In women's world it sure does! This is exactly the result when you start to listen to the bullshit women throw at you. I remember my first LTR. I was utterly shocked at the insanity of some issues that were being raised against me.

All this equality bullcrap is just shit testing on a meta scale- and men are failing it. Hard. And how could they not if you look at the average male. Even men with a shred of pride are still being taken hostage sexually.

Put a huge lock on men's sexual outlet while simultaneously opening the valve gates to females emotional outlet. Bam, that's western society right there. Men are sexually deprived slaves that would do anything for a sip of that pussy.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

that would be doing everyone a favor in reality. But they should still be given work to do while at home

[–]1Sir_Distic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If I owned a company I'd allow women time off for periods. Provided they return with medical proof and they would not get paid for the time off.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The article mis represents it somewhat, the founder says she wants to create a system where employees work when they are most effective. And this is correct, some people work better in the morning, other in the afternoon etc. Everyone has different mental rhythms. According to her the "spring" part of the cycle workers are 3 times more efficient. This could be an effective system for maximising efficiency if it's implemented correctly.

I put the chance of that happening at about 0% though.

Did anyone else almost miss the guy in the photo? I felt my T drop just looking at him.

[–]1Chockrit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember reading about some charity where they were trying to give tampons to African girls because they couldn't go to school because of their period. They wanted to be able to do shit while on their period. And when they got the tampons, they fucking went to school.

Western women, who have tampons and Motrin and 100 other ways to help them deal with their period, now want to be paid because "I don't feel well."

I mean, what if I called up my boss and said "Hey, can I get some punched-in-the-nuts leave, the pain is unbearable," you think I'd get jack shit?

[–]yGTWgtNrco 1 point2 points  (0 children)

don't feel any allegiance to their country

What does this have to do with the rest of your comments?

[–]8n0n 1 point2 points  (0 children)

don't feel any allegiance to their country

To what am I meant to owe allegiance?

My country is a private corporation; I may be a part of such in the legal sense but in all other characteristics beyond I am not a party that benefits from such corporation. I thus hold no allegiance to the few private individuals who own the assets of such country.

A question I have come to ask myself more since reading this sub many years ago. If I have been lied to, about feminism and women, what else have I been lied to about?

I share that question as it is one I think you should yourself spend more time reflecting upon before casting judgment upon others, that being unpatriotic is akin to being of a beta personality.

By all means I agree that globally we are in a decline, as your post highlights another means of said decline being wrought upon us (for the record, I up-voted it), but I wanted to highlight this IMO weakness within your post.

I have been an entrepreneur. As much as the MSM portrays guys like us as women-haters, it just isn't the case. I know a lot of good women who I would pay good money to make my business function. But fuck that if I will ever pay a woman to sit and bleed.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I encourage our mates in the UK to fight for equal holidays to address maladies that are unique to men and improve the morale and productivity of male employees.

No Money Mondays in recognition of men who have been divorce raped and have no money to commute or buy lunch after paying child support and alimony.

Blue Ball Days for men in dead bedrooms who need at least a half day to watch porn and masturbate to release tension. A relaxed mind = a productive employee.

Good news for employers who lose labour and money (paid leave) at the same time.

Hopefully, these things keep the level of women in the workplace in check.

[–]NewestHouse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Surely they're hitting their limit." you would think that, however, as long as they can, they will. the level of want that women have has no limit, they will keep pushing things further for their own ends until someone forces them to stop. and you guessed it, nobody is gonna stop them. well.....maby muslims in a few years or so.

[–]TRP VanguardArchwinger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's the lesser of two evils. Women get paid for staying at home 100% of the time and not working anyway, so if they'll work 3 out of 4 weeks each month and think they're getting a good deal, that's better, right?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

https://archive.is/tOJks I read the linked article above and I hope that this does spark sincere interest in creating paid leave protections for breeding age women on their period all over the industrialized and developing world.

Now, I fully understand the significance of what I've just said and the real world implications in more ways than many of you might imagine. I've weighed both the good and the bad and I'm oddly surprised to consider more good to be had from this for men, women, children, business, government and society. I won't touch on my reasoning, but I want you to consider the problems our society currently faces resulting from women being encouraged to live like men. I'm sure many of you would agree, it has without a doubt been detrimental to family, society, and disastrous for women in particular. Having breeding age women working only half of the year in response to their own demand to do so is something we should seriously consider.

[–]phillip42069 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They would probably still ask to keep the paid time off after menopause. Or would that be another ticket to paid time off?

[–]TattedGuyser 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sounds like a good idea to me! If my employee is whining like a little bitch I can tell him to go take his period leave and get out. Nice.

[–]waldo888 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yeah try to call out a woman on her shit in front of anyone and you will see how far to the absurd we have come. Its obviously true shit because the women never take it as a controversial opinion to discuss but lash out very aggressively to defend themselves. I have noticed that it is not so much a pendulum swinging the other way currently, it is so much worse...it is a significant obvious divide between male opinion. Those who speak up are basically socially shot, those who know but keep quiet, and those who keep silent and just hope to the dear god that the controversial one will shut up so that he doesn't have to deal with the coming abuse from his wife/gf. A women who knows that you are stronger and not afraid to speak will pout in the corner after her tirade and spew out all of her hate filled rant to her pussy boyfriend. He will never speak to you again.

Period pains are usually, provided no physiological ailment is present, caused by magnesium deficiency. My wife hasn't had a painful period since she's been taking with a liquid magnesium supplement.

So long as women do not get paid for their period week off, I don't give a shit... But this will just cause women to have a harder time getting a job. If I knew my workforce would be cut down by a fair amount for several weeks out of a month, reducing productivity and profits, I'd hire less women or I'd legitimately pay them less for being less productive.

A tranny should go into that company and if they exclude it from that policy, it should yell and scream real loud that it's being discriminatory and exclusionary.

Then you can have all the men demand same, just say they are transgender-women that don't feel compelled to bow down to traditional gender roles - ie any feminine traits.

Cool. As a man, I feel pain often. I think I might need to take some time off.
