...move to China where they will learn to appreciate their lives in the US. Chinese version of 'Mad Men?'

Chinese Firm Job Ads:

Sexual objectification of women—treating women as a mere object of sexual desire—is prevalent in Chinese job advertising,” the report notes. This includes height and weight specifications irrelevant to the job duties, to ensure that only shapely women will apply, and even requirements for “good skin tone,” “no incurable skin conditions,” and other conditions meant to ensure that female staff will be pleasing to the male eye.

In cases where women are allowed to apply for jobs, the posting often specifies that they must be married, or even married with children. This is presumably intended to cut down on office romances and reduce the chances of a female employee becoming pregnant and requiring maternity leave.

Women in the US don't know how good they have it. As long as they don't reveal they are conservatives, they have the same chance to get a job as an overt Progressive.

Maybe you should propose that those women in China move to the Middle East ( the true meaning of mad men) so they'll learn to appreciate how good they have it in China.

Comparing to China? Really?

How about comparing the US to actual fully developed countries that have at least some standards in human rights.

So it's okay that women in the US are harassed or in any way discriminated against in the workplace and they should tolerate it because women in China apparently have it worse?

Is that really your argument? They "don't know how good they have it" therefore, what? They should shut up?

Are you a man or a woman btw?

Oh, so people who are treated unfairly should go to a place they'll be treated even worse so they learn to shut their mouths and take it?


You sound unAmerican.

I mean, by that logic, Christians who complain that the US discriminates against Christianity should go to China too.

Go over there and start a Baptist church. See what happens.

Is this where we compare ourselves to Norway or Japan? Most of those countries aren't nearly as big or divers as America.

My point is that America can hardly be compared to anything on earth.

Saywhat?

This is like cutting off someone's finger and showing them someone who is missing a hand as a way to get them to thank you for cutting off just their finger.
