he is resorting to the extremes to make a case that is not common. waking up at 4 am, going to mines. In the 21st century most men aren't still swinging those pickaxes, or out there hunting game. No, most of us are just slave-like drones for some corporate stuff, just like women.
The majority of the workers all around the world are subjected to the same, painstaking standards regardless of gender. both genders are employed at around the same rates all around the world. Maybe u've never seen it but i have gone to textile factories, most women there are working in conditions that would leave this son of a b*tch's mouth agape, trying to provide their families with whatever they can.
Maybe i have this mindset because i am from a country where life standards are utterly trash and women are required to help with whatever they can financially by working just as hard to keep a family afloat. I just despise shitters like these that downplay women's labor.
