This used to be the argument put forward 50 years ago when women were in general less well educated, had poorly paid jobs and it was said that the men paid for everything, including dinners out. This is not so much the case now, and the idea needs to be reviewed.

Pay should be based on performance and not sex. Who cares whether it is a women or a man. Furthermore, it is just as sexist to hire a women because she is a women then to not hire her for the same reason (cough cough corbyn)

Most men are capable of working longer hours, over a greater number of years, without complaint, than most women. If pay were fair, it is nothing more than the natural order that, on the whole, men must earn far more than women. A woman arrives in an employer's service with burdens that men simply do not have, and it is also my natural preference not to consider women for work. What kind of man is unable to provide for his wife, and allows her or his daughter to seek work, anyway?

Good grief, Sensible. You belong back in the Dark Ages. An educated woman will, with few exceptions, want a career of her own. Other women will often wish to earn some money so that they are a bit independent and don't have to beg their husband for something they want.

Women tend not to be interested in men who are poor or timid. As women take more Higher paid and demanding jobs the pool of men they consider qualifying for serious relationships diminishes. The result is more unhappiness for everyone except those at the top or those who can plan out their future well in advance.

Women tend to bring there emotions to work and let there home life get in the way of work Life, they tend to need more time off for one reason or another and are just to emotional to be a senior member off staff. Yes they can be very good when on top form but I tend to find from past experience this is only 1 day out of 5. From this I tend to keep a male team and generate a lot more successs results with less hassle.

Men ARE paid more than women - but often for doing the same job with the same output. Not many would argue that a female cleaner should be paid the same as a male accountant- but a female accountant should earn the same as her peers. Iíve worked for over 30 years in ICT and Iíve never seen a case where males consistently outperform females working from the same job description. Most of the time men are paid more, myriad reasons - one of which is that women value themselves and their skills less than men.

Kingping's comment, above, is exactly correct except for its generosity in the figures for women being "on top form". There is a reason for natural law, and it is best to obey it. That is how our businesses have become reputable, reliable and successful.

Ideology is a poor tool in business. Historically successful businesses tend toward pragmatic practices regarding hiring and firing. Just because a person can do a job does not mean that it is in the interests of the business that they do it. When we talk about the top jobs, 99% of men can't do them but many women seem to think almost any woman can and its only patriarchy holding them back.

I mean, I have to assume that every person posting on this thread is doing so with their tongues firmly in their cheeks. But even so, it's staggering that any of you are emboldened by anonymity to peddle your misogyny. Would you also discriminate in so blanket a way on the grounds of race? And seriously, @kingping (whatever that stupid name means - are you sure you didn't mean kingpin??) - that any employer could value an illiterate like you over a qualified woman is depressing. Women are too "emotional", eh? What about men, as illustrated by you, are too uneducated?

I'm afraid the lovely posters would discriminate on the base of race, or anything else that made someone different from them.

How depressing. All the more so because girls statistically achieve consistently higher grades at school than boys, and then are told later in life that they're too stupid to reach the top. Happily, of my fairly evenly split male and female friends, it's far more commonly the women who are earning over £100k in top jobs - and in their mid thirties too. So @sensible, with your poor poor downtrodden wife and daughters, and idiotic @trigestimus, best remember that next time you're in the mood to mouthily compensate for your microscopic balls on an anonymous public forum. You're an embarrassment to yourselves and your sex. I expect it's just bitterness at having been overlooked by women you fancy all your life - now it's your turn to get revenge by using your minuscule, jobsworthish bit of power to overlook them in a "professional" capacity. Pitiable really.

The words used in the above post are normal words for an adult with a standard vocabulary. Which ones are you having trouble understanding? I think it's you whose nerves have been touched - feeling a bit inadequate, are we? Kingping is not even nearly intelligent enough to touch a nerve with anyone. It's just horrific that there are so many knuckle dragging lobotomised men who believe themselves to be superior to women. What is going on? Have I gone back in time? Is it the 1950s? How threatened are you? James, time to go back to school if you feel that words of more than one syllable are a bit of a stretch for your brain. Bless.
