We need to revive the idea of a "man tax" through which we pay for our behaviour.

It's a little inaccurate if you ask me... Beryl is more of an environmental risk than any bloke in our office - and the amount of meat she swallows would put anyone else to shame (not to mention her methane ouput).

It's probably even more skewed than the report suggests. My personal carbon footprint from air travel this year probably accounts for about half the female output from the whole of Sweden.

Had to be the Swedish female "cosmetic lobby fodder" to come up with that one.

And before any hissy hag tries to make a correction...forget it, we men are not interested in the women's point of view

Gerd Johnsson and the rest of your gang at the Swedish Foreign Ministry Office i hope that your not all "knocking yourselves out" over all the indepth research work that it took to come up with the bogus result that men are "bad for the environment"! Gerd says that "three out of four cars in Sweden are driven by men. Men account for 60% of car journeys". So are all these men just driving around for the sole benefit of THEMSELVES or could it also be for the benefit of their FAMILIES? So what difference does it make who drives the car? Gerd, can i apply for a job at the Swedish Foreign Ministry Office so i to can just "kick back" and get payied for doing nothing except for just playing around with bogus research?

Yendor, you're a thought criminal. How dare you question the orthodox Swedish view that everything must be blamed on men.

I wonder what the next report will be... 'Inequality in pub toilet waiting times: abolish urinals says Eva Johansson, chairperson of the "Gender Issues in Pub Toilets National Commission" '...

to make man pregnant also? and put one systembolaget for whole sweden?
is it better to interpret all existing laws or is it better only to keep making new laws?
Eva Johansson and Gerd know what is good and what is bad. so, they make good laws. abolish urinals so men can use open air toilets everywhere and pay fines?

Where the hell, do they get those stats from? (A female thumb) How many women have driver licenses to men? How of those men have families in the car? Etc…etc.

In my SFI class we had to do a project on inequalities of the work environment and how men get paid better. I come from apartheid South African school system and the post-apartheid school system. I know how both sides, pushed their views and idea into your face the whole time. It the same crap with the feminist in this country. No news is bad news so give them any news. Even, if it’s so stupid.

The irony is that the folk who compile these stats do the cause of sexual equality a disservice. For every rubbish statement which is put out people get more cynical and are less likely to respond to studies which highlight genuine areas of concern.

Gentlemen, maybe you should take a look at this...

http://www.dn.se/DNet/jsp/polopoly.jsp?a=685015 (In Swedish)

The article is about microloans to women to start businesses. Why do the organisation not lend men money? "The answer is that women work hard and are responsible. They do not drink, gamble or desert their families."

"But it is not about feminism... The goal is to fight poverty and it is only through women that it works"

Talk about calling men useless! I have seldom seen such a cutdown of men as a group... And it is an old alpha male with a background as the top dog of corporate top dogs... Percy Barnevik who says it.
