comment Does objectifying women in advertisement cause violence against their gender?
Thanks! In the studies in this section #2 were the results measured long term or immediately? What was the sample size?

comment Are women underpaid relative to men?
@MoJo I understand how you could make that case, but the "wage gap" as far as I understand it is about "equal pay for equal work". All other things being equal if someone works less hours and their take home is less than a full time employee, but hourly wages are the same, I personally wouldn't call that person "underpaid". Anyways this is more a case for /r/feminism to argue, I understand your point though I'm just not personally comfortable including it under the "wage gap" term because I think it's misleading.

comment Are women underpaid relative to men?
@mojo No that wouldn't be a wage gap, that's just trying to hard. If both groups get paid the same per hour, but one group isn't afforded the same hours of work it would be a "working hours gap." As a (small) employer the whole idea to hire employees but disallowing some of them from voluntarily working hard is completely bizarre.

comment Has someone been killed or injured by being 'struck by a turtle'?
Google doesn't turn up anything about "Euripides Is a Big Fat Idiot" except in the context of being struck by turtles. I suspect that doesn't exist.

comment Do non-religious people make more money?
@KevinKrumwiede I only hope to learn whether or not it's true or false for the sake of knowing. I'm sure the reasons are complex as to why.

comment Are only 80% of Canadians born in the country?
@gerrit it's because the question is ancient before the rules were well defined. You'll get to close everything from that period then. ;)

comment Do you need to twist a tick out counter-clockwise?
@JanDoggen My title doesn't suggest any such thing. It suggests weather you should twist it counter-clockwise vs some other removal technique, but alternative method is not suggested in the title at all.

comment Is it possible to reliably examine if a girl is a virgin?
What an excellent source to use in this context! I'm struggling to understand what the conclusion of the review is trying to communicate. Is it saying it's reliable enough to perform the test, but the inaccuracies need to be highlighted - or - is it saying that it's unreliable and that the examiner should communicate why?

comment Is it possible to reliably examine if a girl is a virgin?
@AndrewGrimm That's a pretty dishonest article when it makes it seem like the accusation goes unchallenged, but literally the second half is the principal and others denying that it has happened. I don't see a reason to believe a former employee without any corroborating stories.
