In a first for the U.S., women outnumber men in earning advanced degrees

Census figures show women outnumber men for the first time when it comes to finishing college and holding advanced degrees.

The findings released Tuesday come amid record shares of women in the workplace and a steady decline in stay-at-home mothers.

Among adults 25 and older, 10.6 million in the U.S. who earned a master's degree or higher were women, compared to 10.5 million men. Women, however, still lag men in subcategories such as business, science and engineering.

In terms of finishing college, women surpass men in earning bachelor's degrees, by 1.5 million.

Demographers say the educational gains are part of a decades-long trend that is reshaping the workplace and what it means to be a stay-at-home parent.

The fact that that now, women just outnumber men, by 1% when it comes to finishing college and holding advanced degrees, ignores the fact that for the last 20 years, those figures have been slowly changing and increasingly, men are stay-at-home fathers while the mother's advance their education and career.

Don't tell that to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice where it is almost unheard of for a man to receive spousal support from a woman.

Judges of the Ontario Superior Court of Ontario routinely, "get rid of cases" involving spousal support where the payor might be a woman. Its so unheard of that even the most well known legal commentators point it the bias as a matter of fact while failing to mention that such bias, lack of impartiality is illegal.

Educations and parenting are expensive, its frequently impracticable for two parents to study and advance their careers at the same time. It makes good planning for one parent to fill the parenting home support role while the other parent gets ahead.

That's all fine and dandy until the parent , with the rapid increase in career, and high income, decides to throw out the other parent who has probably sacrificed their career for their partner's.

Spousal support is supposed to address that inequity but NOT in Ontario if you happen to be MALE where just being male means your pleadings will be struck, an order for security for costs will be made that you cant' pay and or an order that you are a vexatious litigant simply to ensure that a MALE can never get even a chance to ask the court for spousal support.

If a trial for spousal support is ordered in favour of the father, judges and feminist lawyers will deliberately obstruct justice by issuing further orders that make it impossible for the matter to ever reach court while Mothers are allowed to get orders for child support on income that does not exist, that is, spousal support is ordered against the men who are in fact, have got spousal support in their cases IF they were female.

Its male sharia law, Male gender apartheid and for that we can thank the likes of Jack Layton and their extreme feminist doctrine of promotion of hatred towards men.
