I also agree, except for the second part. For part one, I just had a baby girl in November. I had to burn two weeks vacation to be involved, when my wife got six weeks automatically. For all the fighting that feminists do for everything to be equal, why is this not a rage topic? As for part two, it is a woman's fault for wanting a family. If you have a family, it is not conducive to career development. It's one or the other, at least imo, until the kid is of school age. Both work and family suffers when trying to do both. Daycares do not substitute for good parenting.
I wasn't mocking maternity/paternity leave. Just the notion that it should be mandatory. That you'd literally stop by some guys desk and say "Congrats on the baby, but it is illegal for you to be working today". I think it's cool when companies offer it but you shouldn't be forced to take it. For context of the post, she was basically saying that men should have no choice in the matter.
The "nice guy" stuff has me confused too. When it was created I thought it was just guys who were overly pathetic, but now it's being labeled on guys who open a door or give up a seat on a bus. I was on the train today and it was packed and some lady in her 50's was standing and I told her to please take my seat and she did. I hope she doesn't need rape counseling over this.
What do these girls want guys to act like? To be assholes to them? Usually when you are trying to impress someone, you do and say nice stuff to them. It's never failed for me in the past. And yes, I was trying to fuck most of them. That's sort of how human sexuality works. The guy in her story is only a loser for not completely laughing in her face the first time she lectured him.
