Comment: Re:didn't temperatures peak in 1998? (Score 1) 1105

I recall that the global temperature peaked in 1998 and has not broken that record since.

No, the latest record was 2010.

I recall that the temperature reached in 1998 was lower than that of 1934.

No, globally, 1934 is the 49th hottest year on record.

There seems to be a certain difficulty to create a correlation between CO2 levels and global temperatures.

No, an enhanced greenhouse effect from CO2 has been confirmed by multiple lines of empirical evidence..

If you're referring to that wage gap crap, it's been debunked time and time again.

There's a big difference in what men and women earn at the end of the day (although in the studies I've seen there's a few percentage points of difference that can't be explained). This is often explained with women making different career and family choices. If we accept that reasoning, then if a difference is the result of choice, then it's acceptable. That makes me wonder about one of your other points:

Where are the employment campaigns for more women in dangerous or hard labor jobs?

Why do you think this is a problem? Noone's forcing men to work in dangerous jobs, right? Just like women "choosing" jobs that pay less than men's jobs, men choose dangerous jobs. Women choose one way and get paid less, men choose another way and have more work accidents.

Personally I'm against both situations and I don't think that choice (or the illusion of it) magically solves every problem.

Lastly, I think you should pitch your idea of hiring women into these male-dominated, dangerous jobs. I'm sure women are genuinely wanted by the guys there, and they'll be accepted as equals, right?

And what if you do go out with your rapist for some reason? Does that change anything? No.

There are many reasons. Not every rape is obvious. If you've been raped maybe you're rationalizing it as something else until someone tells you. Maybe you can't admit to yourself that a person you admired is a rapist. So you push your doubts away and try to act normal. It's quite common if you listen to the stories of rape victims.
