OmgLikeWtf What men think that? Most women I know not only work full time jobs, but are also mainly responsible for all of the cooking, cleaning, and family responsibilities like doctor appointments, holiday planning, school duties and more.
I don’t know about the US, but in the UK women work on average 23 hours per week, as opposed to men who work on average about 38 hours per week. 18% of men work in excess of 50 hours per week, while only 4% of women do (National Office for Statistics Labour Force Survey 2004 – the most recent labour force survey they’ve done). I doubt it’s all that much different in most Western industrialised nations.
I thought that teachers were the ones who did all the school duties. That’s generally how it works with my kids, anyway.
Also; I think we’re all grown up enough and well-educated enough here to realise that condoms work 99.99999999999999999% of the time, and the “97% effectiveness” quoted on the packaging is to protect the manufacturers from legal problems, not medical advice. Condoms work; fact.
Drchalk, I’m not disagreeing with your 99.99999999999999999% claim, but would you feel safe enough with a condom to have sex with a woman who had HIV / AIDS? I wouldn’t trust just one method for birth control, just as I don’t trust condoms for totally effective disease prevention. The risks may be negligible when combined with our countries’ low HIV infection rates, but they’re definitely there.
P.S. I’m pretty sure Taylor liked her own status. What a douche.
drchalkwitheringlicktacklefeff… I’ve had a severe allergic reaction to every condom I’ve tried. They causes my vagina to burn with chemical fire and I then develop a thick, white discharge that can last up to three days.
I invite you to stick your fact in a bucket of my vaginal discharge and suck it down like coca cola.
@MsAnneThrope: “…and I then develop a thick, white discharge that can last up to three days. I invite you to stick your fact in a bucket of my vaginal discharge and suck it down like coca cola.”
I was literally drinking a glass of milk when I read this. While it did make me chortle with disgust (gross humor is the best humor), I think my cookies-and-milk snack will have to wait for another day.
That was, by far, the funniest comment I’ve seen on here in a while. Totally worth skipping the snack.
I know too many people who have got themselves pregnant from only using a condom.
AND one guy who found himself an unwilling Baby-Daddy when the chick put a hole in the condom to try make him stay with her (mildy irrelevent, but fact).
There’s one problem, though, Failz. Although sex is (undeniably) better without a condom, I personally prefer and prioritize being safe; Pregnancy is not the only possible consequence of sexual intercourse. Using contraception to prevent unwanted pregnancy is completely acceptable, but you should use a condom to prevent Sexually Transmitted Diseases too (unless you’re with a steady partner, and even if so, he or she has to be checked). I’ve used both birth control and condoms since I was fifteen – which is, in my country, the age of consent.
Samuel does seem like a bit of a jerk, though. Some women are allergic to latex condoms, and Taylor could easily be one of them. Probably slightly bitter that he can’t get laid himself.
drchalkwitheringlicktacklefeff, I do think it must be much different in the UK because of the people I know the men and women work about the same amount of time, unless the study is factoring in moms who do part time work. Also, you must be a complete moron to think that all school duties get taken care of at school. The amount of school related things that need to be done outside of school (not just the hours of homework) is endless. I think if you asked most people in the US if men or women worked harder on a day to day basis 99% would say women.
