This is data mining. If you compare enough things you'll find strange correlations. There is little plausible reason to believe there is an actual causal relationship here.

These are also "irrefutable correlations":

US spending on science, space, and technology correlates with Suicides by hanging, strangulation and suffocation:

Number people who drowned by falling into a swimming-pool correlates with Number of films Nicolas Cage appeared in

Per capita consumption of cheese (US) correlates with Number of people who died by becoming tangled in their bedsheets:

Very nice example of confirmation bias. You went looking for everything that supported your belief.

Now go look at the down-modded ones as well. As I said - anything not toeing the line is at 1 or 2.

Notice how you only see one side of the conversation?

Pick any random story about equality and it will be full of people accusing the women involved of attacking them personally and of being whiney bitches.

Clarify this for me: Are you saying:
1. Such posts exist, and some get upmodded.
- or -
2. The majority of such comments get upmodded and misogyny is the dominant sentiment in this community.

If you're saying 2, we should take action. But first, citation needed, because I think you are mistaken.

I await your action and apology. Very clear pattern of up-mods for misogynistic crap and down-mods for anything not toeing the line.

So... did you ever wonder, do garbagemen take showers before they go to work?
