@seandr:

Why is the question "There is also the question why a lot of the work that is traditionally done by women is paid less than traditional men's work." comparing apples to oranges?

I tried to narrow it down to jobs that have similar physical and intellectual impact, so to compare physically challenging, unskilled work traditionally done by women to that of men.

And no, I am neither in a traditionally female profession, nor paid less than my male colleagues.

@seandr:
Let me guess: your mother was a RN?
You should have compared your income as an unskilled labourer with a nurse's aide who only has limited training but does the majority of the heavy lifting.

@Seandr:

Nursing, for example, is physically very taxing with all the lifting involved, but is paid worse than a physically equivalently taxing, traditionally male job.
Why is that so?
Because traditionally female jobs are valued less, despite their importance for society.

Black Power was important. Just as feminism is important.

Without them, the re-branded movements wouldn't have (had) any traction.

Nooooo!

Fecal transplants into the small intestine would lead to severe bacterial overgrowth in a compartment where bacteria exist, but in comparably small numbers.

Fecal transplants can be administered to the cecum or the proximal colon.



@Dan:

The straining of the fecal sample ist to remove larger particles, such as undigested maize kernels. All the bacteria (which might lead to infection) stay in it. However, the fecal sample gets analysed for pathogenic bacteria.

I Both your examples are bad.

I once swatted my niece on her hand when she was a toddler because I lost my temper. I apologised to her, told my sister about it and never did it again.

@8:
I'd compare raising children to dogs and other animals. I don't believe in using iolence for training. Positive re-enforcement works for animals as well as for kids. :-)

Fertility starts to decline much earlier than the mid-30s. In the mid-30s it takes a woman on average 18 months to get pregnant.

@mydriasis:
Why would one have to be or have been a sex worker to have expertise on the topic?

Am I the only one who thinks that men physically defending women (either by beating up the offenders, or by threatinenging violence, or by just being physically intimidating) are part of the problem? (I am excluding cases where the situation is so that the only possible intervention is a physical one.)

If I am harassed or insulted, I am grateful for anyone who takes my side without thinking that the situation demands threatening or exacting physical violence. A man stepping up and threatening another man for cat-calling, just annoys me, because he perpetuates the notion that a strong men has to protect those fragile women.

Dear Mr vennominon,
the French use Euros (but display the price in Euros and Francs).
