I have been banned from thread for discussing female hypergamy - the tendency among women to date and marry men of equal or greater status, and suggesting that we make something of a false distinction when we criminalise and stigmatise prostitution, on the basis that I couldn't back up what I was saying and that female hypergamy is a hard and fast rule that all females engage in, which I never said.
Thread here - http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...p?t=2056134948
I was told I could not post my opinion unless I provided hard evidence and so I posted spending patterns that demonstrate that in the US, despite earning 75% of what men do women as a group control 80% all of spending and spend far more on themselves than men do, to prove the existence of a large male to female cash and asset transfer in relationships.
I also posted this article http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...housework.html
I also posted a link to a discussion by women, to illustrate that what I was talking about was not uncommon. http://www.feministe.us/blog/archive...akes-no-sense/
And from todays Telegraph (not posted on the thread)
"In a 52-page report published by the Centre for Policy Studies think tank, Dr Hakim continued: “Women’s aspiration to marry up, if they can, to a man who is better-educated and higher-earning, persists in most European countries.
“Women thereby continue to use marriage as an alternative or supplement to their employment careers.
Dr Hakim said many women did not want to “admit” that they were looking for a higher earning partner. They even keep the fact secret from the men they are dating, she said."
The facts on the ground are consistent with what I was saying on the thread, and I believe that I have been censored for talking about something that is essentially taboo and politically incorrect. I complied with the requests to provide sources to back up my opinions, I never did say that female hypergamy was a hard and fast rule, which was the rational given for my ban and on that basis I'd like my ban to be lifted.
This is my first appeal, I hope I have included enough information.
Re. the additional rules added to the charter. Never did I say that all men are x or all women are y, I was only ever talking about measurable tendencies across the groups. I maintain that my position on female hypergamy, was misrepresented by some and misunderstood by others to mean that I was making hard and fast rules.
