Here is something to carefully consider - we all stereotype, and we all have biased perceptions. We even apply stereotypes to ourselves (or they are applied by someone else) , and then modify our own behavior based on those stereotypes - I am a mature, college educated professional, and so should wear a tie to work and probably would not get a tarantula tattooed on my bald head no matter how much I wanted to.
In common-or-garden, mild domestic violence, the women are in the the lead, but not hugely. In rare, fight-to-the-death mutual domestic violence, it is the woman who loses the fight, well over half the time. For much the same reason that an under-65 boy's football team defeated the national women's football team of the USA.
Feminism is a hate group. It's time to call them out for what they really are. No more pointing to quaint definitions and claiming to be about something they aren't. Feminism has never been about Equality, it is only about tearing down men and destroying masculinity. And Feminists prove this with every word, thought and deed. There are no Feminists slaving away working to make *men's* lives a little better. There is never any concern with men's issues and problems. With Feminism, Men *ARE* the problem. Feminism is a hate group by any rational standard. Feminists are extremely hateful and sexist people.
Each of us has a biased world view because we are all limited to a single camera perspective. That is we can only see what comes before us, we can only hear what is around us, and we can only read that which is in front of us. No one has the definitive version of reality, including the the author of this lesson. Our social locations helps inform our world view - our race, class, gender, religion, sexual orientation, culture, world view impacts how we view, respond, and react to every experience. Our job in this lesson is to learn what stereotypes and biases are, how to recognize our own biases, and how move beyond them to a more balanced ability to evaluate and understand people.
n. unequal treatment in employment opportunity (such as promotion, pay, benefits and privileges), and expectations due to attitudes based on the sex of an employee or group of employees. Gender bias can be a legitimate basis for a lawsuit under anti-discrimination statutes.
You are not helping men by trying to compare situations that are unequal. It just sounds like your trying to get attention and provoke people into getting mad at you. Try looking at situations where men may need more help, like suicide prevention, and propose adapted solutions. You might get more people listening and more support for your ideas.
The problem, as Banaji's own research shows, is that people can't seem to help it. A recent experiment provides a good illustration. Banaji and her colleague, Anthony Greenwald, ., showed people a list of names some famous, some not. The next day, the subjects returned to the lab and were shown a second list, which mixed names from the first list with new ones. Asked to identify which were famous, they picked out the Margaret Meads and the Miles Davises but they also chose some of the names on the first list, which retained a lingering familiarity that they mistook for fame. (Psychologists call this the famous overnight-effect. ) By a margin of two-to-one, these suddenly famous people were male.
Without realising it, we all use language that is subtly ‘gender-coded’. Society has certain expectations of what men and women are like, and how they differ, and this seeps into the language we use. Think about “bossy” and “feisty”: we almost never use these words to describe men.
Such a report should be welcome, even though it only contains recommendations rather than obligations. Mental health activists can use such reports as a tool to advocate for positive change on the ground, especially where there are deficits in understanding and service provision.
Thorndike therein defined the halo effect as a problem that arises in data collection when there is carry-over from one judgment to another.

Though a small minority of scientists argues that stereotypes are usually accurate and can be relied upon without reservations, most disagree and vehemently. Even if there is a kernel of truth in the stereotype, you're still applying a generalization about a group to an individual, which is always incorrect, says Bargh. Accuracy aside, some believe that the use of stereotypes is simply unjust. In a democratic society, people should be judged as individuals and not as members of a group, Banaji argues. Stereotyping flies in the face of that ideal.
What Works is built on new insights into the human mind. It draws on data collected by companies, universities, and governments in Australia, India, Norway, the United Kingdom, the United States, Zambia, and other countries, often in randomized controlled trials. It points out dozens of evidence-based interventions that could be adopted right now and demonstrates how research is addressing gender bias, improving lives and performance. What Works shows what more can be done often at shockingly low cost and surprisingly high speed.
