Equality means 100% women 0%men. The men can be garbage men, and do the dirty jobs, because men are disgusting pigs.

I mean, to be fair, if they got a 60/40 split in applicants, 60/40 split for attendees would still be equality. The important part is the acceptance rate.

This is a good thing. The entire (misguided) point of affirmative action was to be temporary to fix the imbalance, good on them for removing it since they're not easy policies to remove.

I think most people don't realize that affirmative action just means taking opportunity away from Asians and giving it to Blacks and Hispanics. White people are basically unaffected.

"Women represent about 60 PERCENT of university students in Sweden, a pioneer in gender EQUALITY.

[–] weezkitty 6 points 10 points (+16|-6) ago  (edited ago)

To be fair, 60/40 isn't that far from 50% and could be considered "equal" if it averaged out over time. Of course if the ratio keeps increasing, it is obviously female biased.

[–] RumbledFeathers 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

Women should not have more anything than men. Because women aren't willing to support men in most cases. Its what is happening in Japan. Women were given good high paying jobs and then have no reason to marry. When there are tons of homeless men or men killing themselves because they have no options that is just fine for women.

I'd rather have no more than a 5% difference between genders of students accepted, but that's my inner statistician talking. I'd be curious to know how exactly affirmative action works in Sweden, though.

Then why didn't they call a 60% male, 40% female split "equal" and cancel their affirmative action then?

[–] maxoverdrive 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

In case you didn't catch it, that means women outnumber men 3 to 2. That's nowhere near any rational definition of "equality".

If affirmative action was actually benefiting men, then that means in a system based on merit there would naturally be more women than men.

In the small groups of programs mentioned...not overall.

Some women gravitate towards certain careers for one reason or another. That's what feminists don't understand, just because there are more women in a field, or more men in a field, that doesn't mean it's because of sexism. I'm in computer science and we would love more females in this field, but they want to have nothing to do with us nerds :( So I guess feminists need to force women to go into computer science, for equality hurah!

Interesting. Given that affirmative action was benefiting men, in a system based on merit there would naturally be more women than men.

In North America, affirmative action largely benefits people of color. By your logic, people of color would fail in a merit-based system.

I, for one, spit on your racist world view.

What the fuck are you people talking about? Jesus, conservatives are on a roll in this site. Sanders is all about the economic Left and some basic social equality like gay marriage which is a given in any civilized nation. How you went from that to assuming that Sanders is an SJW I have no idea.

I bet you heard socialist and made a shitload of assumptions. Even though barely anyone will read this let me explain this to you people for my own peace of mind. First of all, neither Sanders or Sweden are socialist. They're social democrats. Second, Sweden's political system has been going down the drain for a while now using SJW social "issues" to distract from the fact that they're becoming more and capitalist as inequality and neoliberalism are eating away their once envied social safety net. Guess who else is using the same distraction tactics? Liberals. The fucktards that have been pretending to be Left (but never were) for decades now and are using these tactics to distract the public while the ruling class is pillaging the country. The fucktards btw that Sanders opposes.

This is the correct answer. Even the fake ass #blacklivesmatter movement(which is funded by billionaire George Soros) interrupted one of his speeches with some fucking non-sense, they didn't even realize that Bernie marched with MLK back in the day. And I'll just add as a non-white person, I have heard so many people of color bitch and complain about white people so god damn much these days that I simply have given up trying to explain to them that it's not "white people" causing many of the problems, at least not anymore. It's big corporations, it's the banks you have accounts in, it's them being distracted by their phones looking at status updates instead of learning some shit. People could be getting some of their friends together and starting a business, but it almost never happens, I very rarely see this going on in black and latino communities because the truth is they refuse to unite and work with each other, often self-hating their own race, saying ignorant ass shit, and blaming everyone but themselves and their negative attitudes. I'm not saying that it will be easy, I'm just mentioning the fact that it is not impossible, the "lost cause" attitude needs to go away in the minds of people of color.

Not to interrupt your edgy rant but http://www.mediaite.com/tv/bernie-sanders-america-should-look-more-like-scandinavia/

Sanders has been on record many times wanting to emulate those policies. Hopefully he doesn't mean the SJW social issues, but I couldn't find any sources saying he didn't support them.

"Sanders is the longest-serving independent in U.S. congressional history. A self-described democratic socialist,[7][8][9][10] he favors policies similar to those of social democratic parties in Europe, particularly those of Scandinavia.[11][12][13]"

Sanders doesn't realize that those countries have horrid tax rates and massive social problems engineered by SJWs. I don't see how anyone could want to live like that.

I wonder if any of the women that hold this opinion have ever worked along side another woman.

In the workplace, they are incredibly hostile toward each other. There are exceptions, but generally this is the rule.
