In a study of sleep characteristics in 669 adults in Chicago who were compared by sex and race, investigators found that blacks got less sleep than whites, while men got less sleep than women.
Lazy bloody women. Get up! Out of that bed!
Breakfast. Make. Now!
While people thought they were getting about seven hours of sleep nightly, they were really getting only about six hours, the researchers report in the American Journal of Epidemiology. On average, white women slept 6.7 hours a night, white men slept 6.1 hours, black women slept 5.9 hours, and black men slept 5.1 hours nightly. The racial and sex differences remained even after the researchers factored in the effects of socioeconomic factors such as employment and lifestyle.
Funny how most feminists – certainly the most vocal and fanatical – are invariably white women, yet they’re the most pampered demographic of them all; they even spend more time kipping than men and black women!
It’s a rather objective article but it would be interesting to imagine if the results were the other way around and men slept more than women. There would no doubt be – if not on CNN then on the bastard BB-fucking-C – some ‘amusing’ (read: cheap, insulting and misandrist) article declaring how men are lazy, maybe with a cartoon showing a man snoring in bed and his wife cooking dinner and and hoovering up at the same time.
The racial and economic sleep differences detected in this study could help explain the well-known disparities in health that exist between blacks and whites, she added.
Indeed they might, Miss Researcher. It might even show disparities in health that exist between men and women! But best not mention that, eh?
Obviously highlighting the differences in healthcare and life expectancy between races and economic classes is fine, but doing the same with sexes is a big Neddy No-No; after all, that might bring people’s attention to how pampered women are, how easier their lives are and how unoppressed they fucking well are! That would knock the Holy Crown Of Victimhood off their pretty little heads, and they want that crown there for ever and ever.

Feminism partially grew out of the KKK movement. I’ve long thought that much feminist activity is racist in original impulses.

If you add in the time that a lot of modern women spend watching daytime tv or generally wasting time gossiping at work, that’s another 2-3 hrs at least… they might as well have been asleep during those hours.

Actually I sleep a fuck of a lot, just to spite that b///h!
She used to get so pissed off at me for waking her up at 5:30 when I was off to work construction, outside, in February. And what did she have planned for the day? How about sweet fuck all! Unless going to Starbucks is work, or was that research? I’m getting confused, I think I have to lie down.
