Michael Vick got a 32 game suspension for hosting dog fights.

You get a, minimum, four game suspension for marijuana.

Nowadays in the the league, if they even THINK you hit someone with the intent to hurt them on field, you’re looking at a five game suspension and a fine.

But Ray Rice can literally knock out his fiancé and he gets a two game suspension and commentators saying “she shouldn’t have provoked” him and that “he’s really a great guy”.

The eerie, unfortunate tweet Reeva Steenkamp made a day before she was shot and killed in an incident—an incident where her boyfriend, Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius, is the main suspect.

Oh, so this is that “male privilege” I hear so much about…..

Suicide Victims
One, men succeed at killing themselves more often because they often choose more violent methods than do women. Blowing your head off with a shotgun is almost always fatal. The suicide methods that women choose, such as taking an overdose of pain killers, are prone to failure than using a firearm. 
Two, men are much less likely to seek mental health help. This is often because of sexism: our culture demands men aren’t supposed to show their feelings or admit to any kind of emotional weakness. 
Industrial accidents 
That is because the most dangerous jobs (such as logging, commercial fishing, aircraft pilots, construction, truck driving, and mining) employ far more men than women.

Normally, the number of suicides males compared to females is three to four times higher. However, in quite a few countries with high levels of gender equality (bold in the table above) like The Countries of Scandinavia as well as The Netherlands the factor is well below three.

Isn’t it interesting that in countries with the highest level of gender equality, relatively more women commit suicide?
