It will certainly be interesting to see what happens on the Guardian's Comment if Free, though it's run by a sexist who studied gendner studies at Tom Martin's favourite University so not holding out too much hope.

Are we sure the Fawcett Society have deliberately chosen International Men's day for their event, if it's true then they really are the very lowest of the low.

In their defence I suppose there isn't a vast amount of coverage of International men's Day, though seeing as they claim to want equality for men an women I suppose they'd be 100% aware of it and have it down in their diaries.

What this proves is that either Fawcett are either incredibly stupid, or liars who don't' care about men, or misandrist who hate men so much then try to hijacks the only day of the year that is about men's equality.

Well this looks like a success for the fawcett Society et al. It seems no one was very interested that the earlier "victims" of the recession in the much bigger private sector didn't merit such attention.

However any government would run into trouble as the policies had effectifely made many women reliant on Gov. funds (tax payers).

Meanwhile a Judge demands more favours.

Of course the truth is men and women aren't separate classes. Many benefits are for children and families not women and both sexes earn and work in mutual support. As you sat the Letter and Conference take a much more mature approach than a juvenile "them and us".

The Guardian like to indulge themselves, not dissimilar to the way the BNP used to do the same thing. Except the BNP were lambasted for racism.

I like the suggestion in the Guardain comments that we bring in quotas to limit the number of women in the public secor in order to protect them against spending cuts in the future.

It seems that when women don't have power and piviledge they are discriminated against and so are in a worse position than men and deserve special treatment and when they DO have power and priviledge then they have more to lose and so are in a worse position than men and deserve special treatment.

Sound familiar ?
