The Daily Mail is an excellent source of material on female issues - just pay them a visit once a day to keep the fire for anti-feminism in your heart burning.
Now, they tell us that Women spend eight years of their life shopping.
While keeping up appearances and indulging in "a little" retail therapy - and keeping their families fed and clothed - the average woman will shop for an astonishing 25,184 hours and 53 minutes over a period of 63 years.
If the average expedition lasted the length of a full working day - from 9am to 5pm - that would be 3,148 days trudging around the shops, or just over eight-and-a-half years.
Predictably, the article takes a whining tone, and the overall feel of the article is "We are such VICTIMS!" and as you get to the end, it is confirmed by the comments.
I wonder just how many of these women they studied have families to "keep fed and clothed." This was the first item, as if most women shop for their families by necessity all the damn time. Always always you will find that the mainstream media will imply that women are angels, while men are non-entities, or devils. In this article, they dare not criticize women for doing what everyone knows is a soulless activity, like masturbating but even emotionally emptier. The things you own end up owning you.
The poll also showed women will go window shopping 51 times a year, spending 48 hours and 51 minutes just looking for their next purchase.
And of course, the resident mangina has something to say about that... Notice how quick he is to defend women, the wikkle babies can't do no harm, can they! He is probably patting himself on the back right now for being womyn's white knight.
Stewart Macphail, of GE Money, said: "Women clearly dedicate a lot of time to making sure they find the best deals and the most suitable items for their needs.
Oh please. Women clearly dedicate a lot of fucking time to shopping because someone is out there working to pay for it.
And the first comment...
The reason we have to spend so much time shopping is because the men in our lives dont! They dont go to the supermarket on a regular basis, they dont shop for our clothes, we end up shopping for them and then returning items that dont fit! And we do all of the Christmas shopping even for his family! One of the other main reasons it takes so long is because the supermarkets move stuff around every few weeks!

Waaah waah waaa! The men! The stores! The men in the stores!! We are victims of the world around us!!!
The men don't shop for us, we have to justify our constant trips to the market somehow, so we end up finding something for the men along the way to the checkout, then the ungrateful bastards have the gall to complain that we don't know what they wear or what size they wear it in!!!!!! WE ARE VICTIMS, ALL OF US!! WE ARE INDEPENDENT WOMYN BUT STILL NEED TO FIND SOMEONE TO BLAME FOR OUR FUCKED-UP DECISIONS!!!!!!! Waaah waaa*choke*
... Ahem. So our resident victim has shouted herself hoarse, she will be back later to complain about how she's a victim with a bad throat. Let's hope she develops laryngitis.
Oh, here's another one, this one by a very independynt wom4n in Scotland:
Yeah, all very interesting, but is there a similar study about how many hours men spend in the pub!

Along with that, let's do a study on how many men tank up with their girlfriend's or wife's money. He's probably going to the pub to escape from your shrieking, you frickin banshee. Tone it down a little, take off your trousers and put away those garden shears you were going to cut off his balls with, and maybe show him a little appreciation. Jesus, goddamn females have to be trained in everything. That's probably why the therapist/emotional consultant business is growing so fast.
