Systemic Discrimination Against Men and Fatherhood
Feminists have been adept at playing their victimization card and convincing us, with no statistical evidence to back it up, that women are discriminated against. But every shred of statistical evidence reveals that men have been systematically discriminated against by government fiat, with no opportunity to present their counterclaim in the media, nor even to government:

WEALTH: Women hold 65% of the country's wealth [Fortune Magazine]

CHILD CUSTODY: Women receive custody of 92% of the children of divorce and illegitimacy, and men only 4%. [Department of Health & Human Services]

INCOME: Men constitute 60% of workplace hours, work longer hours, work harder, and are more qualified, rarely file sexual discrimination or harassment lawsuits or take pregnancy leave, yet earn only 42% more than women [Dept. Labor]

SUICIDE: Men's suicide rate is 4.6 times higher than women's [Dept. Health & Human Services -- 26,710 males vs 5,700 females]

LIFE EXPECTANCY: Men's life expectancy is seven (7) years shorter than women's [National Center for Health Statistics -- males 72.3 yrs vs females 79 yrs] yet receive only 35% of government expenditures for health care and medical costs.
AFFIRMATIVE ACTION: Men are discriminated against BY DESIGN through affirmative action.

FEDERAL TAXES: Men pay 115% of federal income taxes [http://fathers.zq.com/menpy115.htm]

VOTE: There are 11.1% more female voters than male voters SO the male vote has little influence on how the male tax dollar is spent.
WAR: Men, not women, fight and die in battle without suing the taxpayers [Dept. Defense -- Vietnam Casualties 47,369 men vs 74 women] while women sue the taxpayers when their cohorts pinch their butts.

WORKPLACE FATALITIES: Men account for more than 95% of workplace fatalities.

MURDER: Men are murdered at a rate almost 5 times that of women [Dept. Health & Human Services -- 26,710 men vs 5,700 women]
JURY BIAS: Women are acquitted of spousal murder at a rate 9 times that of men [Bureau Justice Statistics -- 1.4% of men vs 12.9% of women]

COURT BIAS: Men are sentenced 2.8 times longer than women for spousal murder [Bureau Justice Statistics -- men at 17 years vs women at 6 years]

JUSTICE SYSTEM BIAS: Fathers are 97% of "child support" collections prosecutions [Census Bureau]

WELFARE: Men are the recipients of less than 10% of all welfare disbursements.

SECONDARY EDUCATION: Males are only 45% of all college admissions even though two thirds of those who score higher than 550 on SAT Math are males, and even though 98% of the top fiftieth percentile of GRE Physics are males.

HIGHER EDUCATION: There are more than 200 all-female colleges for women and now not one single all-male college for men.

LEGAL SYSTEM BIAS: 96% of physical altercations resulting in injury to a spouse occurs AFTER the date of separation. [Read: spousal abuse laws that pretend that husbands are dangerous discriminate against husbands when we know that only a very small percent of domestic violence is associated with them]. [Chadwick and Heaton, "Statistical Handbook of the American Family"]

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: 58% of the above mentioned physical altercations are initiated by the female. [Read: despite the fact we discriminate against husbands in protective orders, women still cause more than half of domestic altercations. It is as if they know they can get away with it]. [ibid.]

CHILD VIOLENCE: Mothers commit 55% of child murders and biological fathers commit 6%, while children are systematically removed from the custody of the biological fathers who are their most effective protectors.

FAMILY BREAKDOWN: The US Surgeon General notes that divorce is more harmful to a man's health than smoking tobacco, yet $1.3 Trillion of federal expenditures accomplish nothing less than to underwrite family breakdown.
