So sad. I guess it's only natural that Western media reports more when it's closer to home though. It's not about lives mattering more.

Malta's pop keeps on growing but not thanks to the Maltese but to migration...

Italy set to offer 'menstrual leave' for female workers [source]


somebody wrote:'parents of both genders'

Everyone knows there are a lot more than two genders. Please can you put a trigger warning on your articles if you are going to use such bigoted language.

No free speech for hate speech.

Lol at the excerpt.

Regarding Italy's measure: good idea. Some women get unbearable :rolls eyes:

Even if it is a good thing It will work against women as employers will think it twice before hiring women

It was a joke! :rolls eyes: it is obviously an awful idea!

Only Europeans (and maybe Canadians) could find such an idea anything other than absolutely ridiculous. No offense.

Well, I don't think I need to make clear here I'm a tolerant man... That said: it's in their nature to have it, it's different fir every women and they keep throwing statistics at us that supposedly prove how much more money men make "undeservedly", when no one includes maternal leave and deliberate part-time work in these statistics... I know women can do perfectly well what men can (except for soccer ) - but give me a break! There's a ton of problems other people have, are we including those, too? I'm tired and hungry 24/7, that a reason to stay home?
Btw: if you have a sick note menstrual cramps are very much already enough to stay home...

I'm surprised that you hold that opinion, as you're usually kinda left-wing. I agree, such a measure would affect negatively female employment and remuneration. It just makes no sense for a company to hire an employee that takes 2-3 days off per month plus months if she's pregnant. There is also the problem of investment on that employee; it makes less sense to invest in training a young female employee if she can get pregnant and quit any time.

Nah I'm not, I'm as center as it gets if you ask me... I just don't like Nazi-like behavior, adapting their language and behavior... There's always more than one way to look at things... I get that it's a hard time for women, but how is it harder than on someone who was just dumped? Took a financial blow? Lost a loved one? In order to maintain our standard of living we have to work... Most of us don't like it but that's just the way it is...

Civilian casualties have gone up 400% ever since there's a new president... And it's not "Killary"... Either coincidental or Obama's fault, I know...

Last Sunday news was that the bombing was the act of ISIs or what is left of them
