Amen to the previous posters! They took the words right out of my mouth. The one difference is: I'm a woman. It appears that for those of us who are unmarried and without children there IS gender equality!
I have noticed one area where men in general, but single men without children in particular, definitely face more discrimination than women. It's volunteering with community youth groups such as scouts or Little League. The automatic assumption is that a single man wants to get involved because he's a pedophile, while a single woman wants to get involved in order to nuture children. I've been told by several men that they'd love to mentor kids but they're afraid of a cloud of suspicion hovering over them, even when an extensive background check is required and the group never allows an adult to be alone with a child. Has anybody else noticed this?
