And they haven't learned that oppressing a gender makes them weak because they're not using all of their "human resources" at their disposal. Imagine if tomorrow women in the US were required to stay home and not have would destroy the US economy very quickly.

Instead of doing the very important work of sitting on chairs in government buildings? The secular western countries are utilizing women so well they are all undergoing demographic collapse, which is why they are frantically importing humans produced by religious orders.

Eventually the courts will apply "yelling fire in a theater" to more types of speech if that's what society wants. The only question will be whether it is legal for the crowd to beat the speaker to death in self defense, or if it should be left to the authorities.

An idiot for foiling a CIA stratagem to get him into their custody? A bad person because he is charged with a fake offense? 100 times less important than Snowden...whom he saved from arrest? You are either writing on the clock or being manipulated due to a rendition that you can't remember

Colleges and workplaces will give them priority too, see Harvey Mudd, which punishes males students for being "macho" if they demonstrate programming expertise, and reddit, which won't allow males to negotiate a higher salary due to performance. European companies are also being forced by law to hire females to the highest positions without regard to qualifications or ability.

Obviously a manipulative survey, could also ask the kids if they are worried about masturbation making them go blind, impotent, or any other misconception. "Shocking" and "upsetting" are also completely different things, and they are both completely different from "damaging". Creepy as hell for parents to "supervise" their kids' sexual behavior unless it means setting up a marriage. Some parents are medically delaying puberty in their kids in the hope that they will turn transsexual, probably in the future it will be legally required.

the number of sexual harassment suits filed by men has been on the rise, doubling from 8% of all cases in 1990 to 16.4% in 2010

Except the men are actually suing men since women didn't build the companies, they've got no skin in the game. This is like claiming that kicking your dog teaches the fleas a lesson, but parasites don't react until the host is dead.

Don't panic.
