Will Feminists and Gender Activists Demand Perfect Gender Equality When It Comes to Workplace Fatalities?

Mark Perry doesn't think so:
 Except for “farmers and ranchers” at 76.2% male, men represent more than 90% of the workers in all of the other 9 most dangerous occupations. Probably safe to say that the feminists and gender activists will make an exception for demanding perfect gender equality when it comes to workplace fatalities?

  1. I'm also looking forward to the reaction when women in actual combat are killed or captured.

    1. They've already lowered the standards for Women to get them into combat roles, as if it was a social experiment. The whole thing is absurd, but then so is modern day society.

  2. One more note. It's interesting how police and fire fighters aren't on this list.....

    1. Where did you find the stats on these? I'd be interested in hearing about whether some of the 18 per 100,000 were from heart attacks, etc. from out of shape cops.

    2. I googled and came across some articles with the numbers. You're right, though. The article mentioned that the deaths from heart attack and stroke, etc. were included in that number. I believe the category for those deaths was called "presumptions".

      I don't think the private sector numbers are as presumptive. :)

    3. Yeah of those 18 per 100,000 cops who died on the job how many were cops who died of heart attacks while eating donuts at work? Probably 100 percent.

  4. I've actually done 4 of those jobs on the list. Logging, roofing, construction and garbage man. By far the most dangerous was garbage man. Was actually hit by the truck on a couple of occasions and was just lucky to come out with minor injuries. I did fall off a roof at a new construction job but was lucky enough to land on a sand pile below. The logging work was pretty straight forward (not logging in the great Northwest). Never saw a woman even close to any of those jobs. Lots and lots of talk ABOUT women though. I was just a kid and we thought women were awesome!!

  5. The reason there is a 'wage-gap' at all is due to a desperation gap. Men are expected to provide for the family and take care of themselves, while many more women can afford to goof off, major in things other than math and science for fun, and in general, get a free pass in society for immoral and/or wasteful behavior that men would be shunned for. Until women become equally desperate and as a result, work as hard as men at useful endeavors, there will be a wage gap of their own making.

  6. You never hear people talking about how the government MUST DO SOMETHING to get more men into women dominated fields, like kindergarten teacher (97% female), nursing, social workers, etc. Yet there is such hysteria over getting more women into the STEMS fields it's crazy, and the US govt spends big money on programs to get women into these fields.

    Maybe, just maybe, men and women are different and naturally gravitate towards different professions and interests.
