Peterson was right with his "girls want a bad guy", not sure if he meant spankage...probably not. Maybe he will get inspired on EF. Equal rights!
Did you drink something?

Men tend to go when something is wrong.
My GP once told me "I am always happy to see you, as it means that there is actually something wrong!"

Yes, it's very true.

My wife goes regularly, I only go if an emergency, and never get above half of my CHF 2500 deductable except twice in 35 years.

I preferred it when health insurance was not obligatory.

Tom
Hmmm, my advice: don't go only if an emergency.

The discussion about discipline started from here and I feel obligated to continue my line of thought.

Yes, I think it's true that many men neglect their health and not only that, they are reluctant to follow up check-ups, treatments etc. Or they do, but as soon as they feel OK again they forget. Not all, of course.

I think women are more disciplined than men in this regard, they have to. If you're not up on your feet who's gonna take care of the family. So maybe that's why we become a bit hypochondriac.

I made the mistake to open the link FMF has posted. I think it's not the first time he posted stuff like that, but hey ho, I don't judge.
Apparently their first event was a couple of months after I arrived in CH. Switzerland is surprisingly advanced in such things, then everybody has to pretend to be boring I always have said how much fun Swiss girls are in private, not ideal marriage material perhaps?

I always have and still do, I just don't see the point in spending money on a doctor visit that I don't need.

Re: Equal rights for women

This suddenly feels like the right thread to discuss the trial that started in St Gallen today: medical doctor unintentionally kills his Italian mistress during hours of hard sex. https://news.google.com/articles/CAI...H&ceid=CH%3Ade

Re: Equal rights for women

Does anyone else find 'Frauenparkplätze' offensive?

I once took a ride on a female-only Mexico City metro after several failed attempts at boarding normal packed-like-sardines metro cars with a large backpack (the metro cops ushered us into the female car)

It was lovely. Loads of space. Smelled like potpourri.

Totally unfair.

Nope. They were created for women's safety which I will always support.

At the expense of men's/trans'/etc safety?

We need more reserved parking spots in general. Age-based, hair color, height.

Short elderly ginger transexuals get front row.

I'm quite sure if a female trans was using a woman's parking spot, no one would complain. As for men in general, it's their own fault that we need those safe parking spaces.

Not really, they are larger than normal "man-sized" Parkplätze so that even a woman can park without a problem, so let´s give them that

That’s a bit like saying Arabs deserve to get „randomly selected“ at airport checks... because that discrimination was brought on them by very few Arab terrorists.

The honest truth is that no, we objectively don’t need women’s parking spots as parking lots in Switzerland are, just like the rest of the country, really safe. If women are scared to walk through a car park alone at night is that due to some emotional feelings, not actual dangers.

FYI the "Frauenparkplätze" (women parking spaces) were introduced in Zürich after a woman was stabbed - by another woman.

Also FYI, men are the majority of victims of physical violence in public like murder or serious bodily harm.

Also good to know that you think that men in general in some way "deserve" to get less protection because a small minority of men commit crimes.

I strongly disagree and am grateful for those parking spots. I have never felt completely comfortable walking into the far corners of a large parking spot after dusk.

You implied that women's fears are only in their minds. In my younger years, I have been put in uncomfortable situations by strange men whose behaviour was questionable. There were moments when I was relieved to be in my locked car. I'm sure there many other female posters who have also their own stories.

Re: Equal rights for women

There is a placed called Frauenfeld in CH, what did they do to Mannerfeld? This much for gender equality.
