I have read so much about feminism the last years, and so little about masculinism that it is not even a word according to my dictionary.
I might piss off some people writing about this, but whatever. I believe that any discussion where only one party is represented gets a little loop sided.
In Norway today I think that we have equal rights, I would even go further and say that wherever one sex has an advantage from rules it is nearly always women. I have gone to a job interview where they admitted that I was clearly better qualified, but they preferred a woman. And the difference in qualification wasn’t just a bit, the job was to run a Facebook page, I have one with 150.000 fans, the one that got the job had no experience.
So, why do men earn more than woman on average? It is more than anything else a question about priorities. Men want to earn a lot, a man that earns a lot is seen as an alpha male, can have a fancy sports car, buy drinks for everyone and get more women. Guys work on average 6,5 hours more per week according to SSB, but that doesn’t count everyone that have their own firms or high income jobs where you don’t add up the hours in the same way. A man will often choose a profession based on where he can earn more money.
I think many women would be surprised about how much of many mens life decisions are based on his sex drive. Why do you think so many men want to be rock stars, powerful leaders, rich businessmen and so on? I think that if male nurses got the same attention as a rock star, an athlete or a successful business man you would see a hugh que of men wanting to be nurses.
If you want to earn more, work hard. If you complain about men earning more than women, find a job that pay you more and don’t expect a man to pay for you because then he has to earn more than you. If you want men to be softer and more sensitive, fuck a sensitive guy
I know there are other areas as well, but those are discussed over a million pages before, I just wanted to give a masculin view on the discussion and what I learned growing up is, work hard, don’t cry and you get what you deserve.
