Well, I only wanted a 3rd choice because both the ones listed are men. Ick! Who would willingly WANT to be a guy???
Well she might be thinking that aprox. 93% of workplace fatalities happen to men, men have a shorter by 5 years or more life expectancy, make up the majority of the homeless, are the majority of suicides, and get longer prison sentences for the same crimes. She might be thinking that men don’t really have all that patriarchal privilege women’s studies classes claim.
Hmm, I’m guessing that was all true before 1920. Women sure had it easy! What were those suffragettes bitching about, anyway? Right to vote? Overrated! Am I right?
Also, women live 3 years longer than men in Iran. http://fathersforlife.org/health/lifeexpw.htm
And I bet they have fewer workplace accidents too! But that’s offset by the enormous power women have in Iran. Oh wait. I’m thinking of America, where we routinely elect women presidents, senators, governors, and congresswomen, hire women CEO’s, and appoint women judges. Oh wait, that doesn’t happen either.
I can back up my claim on the workplace fatalities.
5,488 total fatalities. 5,071 male fatalities. 5,071 is 92.4% of 5,488. So I guess you got me. It isn’t 93%.
5,840 total. 5,396 to men for 92.4%.
5,734 total. 5,328 to men for 92.9%

And you backed up my claim on life expectancies with your link. Did you read it first? Or maybe you thought that I wouldn’t?
Your link gives the averages. It is greater in developed nations 6.19 and 5.09 for all nations. Note the difference in Russia of 12.89 years. Those are the facts you use to show someone’s claim is wrong? Data that backs your opponent up?
