    [–] "It Gnaws Away at Me": Female Scientists Report a Horrifying Culture of Sexual Assault JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Oh, yeah, I read that, and yeah totally unacceptable. I was simply speaking also of the wide range of perhaps lesser stuff that one could argue that it's a consequence of psychology rather than being a true dick.

    I dunno. Just speaking from my viewpoint in industry, but I dare say academia may be a different kettle of fish

    [–] "It Gnaws Away at Me": Female Scientists Report a Horrifying Culture of Sexual Assault JayTheFordMan 2 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Well, as a scientist myself Ive never seen too much of this, however I am not surprised as I can lay money on the fact that a high number of men in science fields are probably somewhere on the autistic spectrum, and as a consequence can be socially inappropriate. Not sure what one can do to seperated this and the truly sexually deviant people.

    [–] “Guilty until proven innocent” is NOT the way to go with Sexual harassment allegations JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    No, but they have suffered severe social and financial consequences on the basis of accusation/s, the definition of presumed guilt. Just because its social does not mean we should drop the presumption of innocence, you are simply sidestepping the very discussion the OP has put forward by changing the definition. No, its not right in any setting, you don't get to have your cake by changing the context

    Mob rule should never constitute a fair hearing and presumption of innocence until proven guilty.

    Was eyeing one of these off at a bike shop yesterday, great bike! Wasn't as pretty as this one, but they are great looking bits of kit no matter

    Is this the Male privilege they were telling me about?

    [–] Deaf cringe JayTheFordMan 6 points ago in cringe

    I'm totally deaf in left ear, and partially in the other. Frequently I have people trying to talk to me on my deaf side, but I'm clueless, and when they start to get shitty and my wife is there she'll tell them that I'm fucking deaf and they should be a little more respectful. Yeah, the tune changes then.

    [–] What should you say to a man who thinks it's okay to date high school girls? JayTheFordMan 5 points ago in AskWomen

    I had a friend who tended to go after high school girls in his 20's, I think mostly because they were susceptible to his bullshit. Back then I didn't think it was an issue, but looking back it's clear that he had issues.

    Morally I don't have an issue with it, it's legal in Australia, but the age discrepancy can come with manipulative behaviour, as case of my friend, but that's not to say that it can't be genuine and if that's the case then it's cool with me.

    [–] Same sex marriage is now legal in Australia! What are your thoughts? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in AskWomen

    As an Aussie i just thought "about fucking time". Such a non-issue, and yet we wouldn't know it for all the hoopla. As for Abbot, not surprised, he showed his colours

    [–] Men, what was the highest point in your life and what made that time so great? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in AskMen

    Working in Russia, earning $1200 USD/day at 10% tax, double income no kids. Living the baller life then.

    Dunno what happened since then...

    [–] Men, what do you do for a living that makes you the "magical" $100,000 a year or more? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in AskMen

    Production chemist here. Yep, oil and gas is a roller coaster at the moment, pretty bad, but the rewards are there. $100k is entry level money pretty much, but yeah, not easy career.

    [–] Men, what do you do for a living that makes you the "magical" $100,000 a year or more? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in AskMen

    Oil & gas production chemist. Work overseas, rotational. Been doing that for some 17 years, it's been fun :)

    [–] Men who never had a relationship until a "late" age, what do you wish you knew? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in AskMen

    That you are equally important in the scheme of things, and do not be afraid to negotiate for your needs.

    I'm also a straightforward guy, need things straight up, and was so not prepared for how women just do not/cannot communicate directly. Mind reading is not a skill I have.

    [–] What is your greatest worry about your relationship right now? JayTheFordMan 2 points ago in AskMen

    Separating, now trying to work out how to sort ourselves out in our singledom and maintain a good relationship for our daughter. Interesting times ahead

    [–] Women process Oxygen when exercising roughly 30% faster than men, a clear advantage when it comes to physical efficiency. Researchers found female athletes were better at transporting oxygen to tissues throughout their bodies, and their tissues were better at using the extra oxygen. JayTheFordMan 2 points ago in science

    Ok, maybe anecdotal, but last year the India Pacific Wheel race was held in Australia. 5500km unsupported cycle race. Women held 3rd position, and others dotted in top 10 and top 20 finishers. This has been replicated on other ultra distance cycling events. Showing that women can compete with men to a large degree at this type of event. I would hedge that efficient would play a part.

    [–] Can anyone else feel themselves ovulating? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Yes, my wife is usually fully aware of when she is ovulating. Usually complains of the discomfort at first, then she complains about being really horny :/

    [–] Men not living in the USA, how often do you high five? JayTheFordMan 1 points ago in AskMen

    Aussie here, I can say never. Handshake is where it's at for my circle of beings.

    [–] What Is One Thing You Wish Women Realized When It Comes To Dating/Relationships? JayTheFordMan 2 points ago in AskMen

    Fuck, if you want something, just say it! Hints and expectations will just kill the relationship.

    Also, its takes two to tango, you do not act or exist in a vacuum, and for gods sake take some responsibility for your actions and the shit you say. Its never always everyone else's fault, almost always you will have some stake in it.
