Gender-Equal Snow-Clearing

Monday, November 14th, 2016

I could not make up the notion of gender-equal snow-clearing:

Stockholm’s municipal government, a coalition of the Social Democrats and the Green Party, brought in gender equal snow cleaning last year, pledging to make moving around the city on icy winter days just as safe for women as it is for men.

Men are statistically more likely to be drivers, while women are more likely to use pavements, cycle paths, and public transport.

But on Thursday and Friday, the policy came under renewed criticism after the city was thrown into chaos by the unusually heavy snow dump, with buses and trains cancelled, and major motorways blocked.

    Remember, the unusually heavy snow for this time of year was caused by Global Whoring, or something. Thank goodness the Greeds are on it.

  2. Talnik says:

    Until women die of work-related injuries at the same percentage as men, “equality” exercises such as these are merely kindergarten plays staged by otherwise unemployable control freaks.

    I was hoping to see women being forced to shovel snow, the same as men. Sigh! I live in hope, will die in despair…
