Georgia came to a screeching halt and lots of crops simply rotted when they were sent out of the state.

A day at home with my sons will be fun. 30% or more of our workforce will be gone anyway, so hopefully will be quiet at work.

Will teachers and nurses participate strongly in this? Ack.

On a serious note, women could actually use their sexual power for good. There was an example of women using a sex strike to end war in Liberia. If women used sex for good rather than evil, the world would probably be a much better place.

Neither the poster image nor the Yahoo article gives us a clue as to what the "day without women" is about. What are they protesting? What do they want? And who are they? Clearly, they aren't all women, so what group is this even?

Still doesn't say who's organizing this or what they are striking for, although it does mention the National Women's Liberation organization regarding a different "strike".

This is not the first post-election strike aimed at engaging women. On Inauguration Day, more than 7,000 people participated in an organized Women’s Strike to protest President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Paulina Davis, vice chair of the New York chapter of the feminist group National Women’s Liberation and one of the strike’s organizers, told HuffPost in January that they hoped to have as many as 20,000 participants. Although the strike didn’t reach the lofty goal, Davis explained how impactful a strike can be.

“If 20,000 women pledge, it’s a show of force. If 20,000 women say, ‘I’m not going to work today,’ people are going to feel that,” she said. “They’re going to feel that in the work place and they’re going to feel it at home.”

There are 152,081,000 employees in the U.S. as of January. Even 20k is only 0.013%. More people stay home due to the common cold than this. They need at least a thousand times that participation rate to even get noticed. Sounds like a fringe group. Small and impotent. Will the so-called strikers even tell their employers that they are striking, or will they just take a PTO day?

First time I took the test, I got 50%, the same as chance. I was going by looking for the two moles on Portman's left and right cheeks. Second time I took the test I got 20%. Total fail. I can't tell them apart.

A Day Without Men -- A Great Day!

- War would stop for a day = less people murdered around the world.
- There would be 90% less rape -- Every 107 seconds, another American is sexually assaulted. Here's the math. According to the U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS)--there is an average of 293,066 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year.

- Violent crime would decrease dramatically for a day-from wiki

Males were convicted of the vast majority of homicides in the United States, representing 90.5% of the total number of offenders
Young adult black males had the highest homicide conviction rate compared to offenders in other racial and sex categories
White females of all ages had the lowest conviction rates of any racial or age groups
Of children under age 5 killed by a parent, the rate for biological father conviction was slightly higher than for biological mothers
However, of children under 5 killed by someone other than their parent, 80% of the people that were convicted were males
Victimization rates for both males and females have been relatively stable since 2000
Males were more likely to be murder victims (76.8%)
Females were most likely to be victims of domestic homicides (63.7%) and sex-related homicides (81.7%)
Males were most likely to be victims of drug-related (90.5%) and gang-related homicides (94.6%)

Males constituted 98.0% of those arrested for forcible rape
Males constituted 89.0% of those arrested for robbery
Males constituted 85.0% of those arrested for burglary
Males constituted 83.0% of those arrested for arson
Males constituted 81.5% of those arrested for motor-vehicle theft
Males constituted 81.7% of those arrested for stolen property
Males constituted 81.7% of those arrested for vandalism

My wife is a manicurist. If she does this the majority of those feeling it will be women.
I'm fine with women taking a day off work as long as they stay home and cook and clean.

OK, so this statistics turns out to be totally false. Not surprising. It involves ignoring a huge section of the population that are deemed subhuman simply because they have been accused of a crime, even minor crimes like smoking pot, and not necessarily even convicted.

More men are raped in the US than women, figures on prison assaults reveal

In 2008, it was estimated 216,000 inmates were sexually assaulted while serving time, according to the Department of Justice figures.

That is compared to 90,479 rape cases outside of prison.

In recent studies 4.5 per cent of 16 and 17-year-olds in adult prison and 4.7 per cent of those in jail reported being the victims of sexual abuse.

So if the point of the original and wrong statistic was that we need to stop an epidemic of violence against women, now that we know for certain that more men are raped, those people behind the original statistic are going to be calling for a stop of an epidemic of violence against men. Right? I mean, because otherwise they would be complete and absolute hypocrites.

Men are the primary purveyors of violence. Men are also the primary victims. But that doesn't mean the victims deserve it because the men who are on the receiving end of the violence are rarely also the ones who commit violence. Some men are very violent. Most men are not. Practically every man is subjected to violence or the threat of violence throughout his life simply for being male. Those who ignore this inconvenient truth are not equality advocates. They care only about one group, and that's just foolish.

Of course conviction and guilt are not the same thing in a society with highly selective enforcement of laws and laws written for the specific purpose of targeting ethnic and political groups.

More importantly, it is OK to judge a group by the sum of its individuals, but it is not OK to judge an individual by the group he or she is assigned to. Most violent is committed by black men does not imply that most black men are violent. The world is ruled mostly by men does not imply that most men rule the world. The converse of a true statement is not necessarily true.

Try it on your own.

No electricity, no water, no cell phones, no car, no coal or oil or natural gas for heating, and no job since nearly every corporation in the world lead back to men toiling in the fields or the mines or the fishing boats or the microwave towers or the code writing or everything.

You fucking think sitting in a cubicle all day creates the world you live in?

All widely published rape statistics are easily disproven lies and propaganda. The stupidity and dishonesty is so naked that these blithering idiots are asserting the same sexual assault rate on American college campuses as occur in the African Congo. About 1 in 4.

However the fascinating thing is when you tell a feminist about this data, she puffs up like a puffer fish, squeals like one of Piggy's girlfriends, and falls to the ground into a quivering pile of goo. Then after hibernating for an hour she gets back up and pretends she never heard it.

How dare you say this?

Don't you know that your opinion and facts you can back up with actual data don't count? You fucking white male! You're not allowed to be right, so check your CIS white male privilege and stop being such a misogynist. Reality not only has a liberal bias, it also has a male bias. Bringing reality into this conversation violates our safe space. Safe spaces are only safe if they are safe from disturbing facts.
