    Genuinely wonder what the OP is expecting people to say to this. Yes, per minute played the women get paid more. Obviously you aren’t suggesting that everyone is paid according to the time spent on an endeavour, because that wouldn’t be right either.

    On average, men are born with a significant physical advantage to women. Maybe you think this gives them the right to be paid more. But in practically every job in every industry women are paid significantly less than men, solely because of their gender. This is entirely inappropriate and makes no sense whatsoever - it’s counter-productive to the general advancement of the human race. Anything that can be done to address this balance should be done. If there are some aberrations that mean women get paid technically more than men, then so be it. A tiny price to pay.

      So the ladies final today took less than an hour and the menís final today nearly five hours. Whilst I know it will never happen, the only way to really settle the dispute, is to hold separate Wimbledonís for men and women and pay them according to ticket sales, TV audiences and TV revenue. I have my suspicion which sex would earn the most!
      Interesting thought.
      First week of Wimbledon - Women only. Second week - Men only.
      Separate Ticket sales and TV revenues for each week.
      Prize monies based on total revenues for each separate week.
      (Put Mixed Doubles wherever)

      Not a great follower of tennis, but I see the men's and women's get the same prize money to be 'equal'. But the men play more games to win the tournament so that means the women are paid more? How can that be 'equal'. Surely the prize money distribution should be based on ££ per game? Also the men's game is a bigger draw I guarantee a tout will get more for a men's final ticket than he will for a women's final ticket.
      Women fill all the seats so deserve the same money.

      Insult? I think youíre being unfair. It was more a comedic put-down playing on the words you used in your post.

      Anyway, you were right about one thing...it is indeed holiday time and I now need to sort my suitcase out. Have a nice Sunday.

      Well so be it. The women earn more per game that ain't right. If was other way round would be all sorts of rug munchers demanding 'equality' and threatening 'boycotts' of wimbledon.
      Iím confused by this statement. You seem quite upset at the fact that women are getting paid the same to do less but if it was the other way round itís like youíd be angry at anyone who was upset about it. So basically youíre upset at an injustice against men but also upset about women (and for some reason especially gay women) who complain about injustices against women.

      Why is it if you don't agree with people they are the idiots and you so obviously are the voice for the people? Is calling names the best you can come up with? Isn't it just a little childish?

      It’s nothing to do with disagreeing. Look at the arguments he is using (I’m assuming he’s a male). Look at the language he is using. Look at how he’s confusing and contradicting himself. His approach is a very strange way to behave if he wants a serious debate. And his approach is a very strange way to behave if he wants people to take him seriously and not think he’s a moron.

      And when he was initially ignored he came back and made a load of snide comments about left wingers. Then he got called an idiot.
