Rebutting feminist SJWs: a linkfest

At NPR: '80s Ads Are Responsible For the Lack of Women Coders - Slashdot, the Anonymous Coward left a fine linkfest. I haven't checked them all, so I might very well disagree with some, but in general, it's a nice example of using facts to rebut dogma. Which is why it doesn't convince identitarian feminists, of course—dogmatic folks don't give a damn about facts.
Egalitarianism [wikipedia.org]
Wage gap myth:
The Wage Gap Myth [americanthinker.com]
Female U.S. corporate directors out-earn men: study [reuters.com]: The only chairwoman in the FTSE 100 index of biggest British companies, when asked about government efforts to force companies to make at least 25% of board member to be female said: “there’s no real evidence to suggest women being on a board makes the companies any better – what we’re doing here is forcing an experiment.” This was further supported in the book “Why Men Earn More” by Warren Farrell, Ph.D., examined 25 career/life choices men and women make (hours, commute times, etc.) that lead to men earning more and women having more balanced lives, and that showed how men in surveys prioritize money while women prioritize flexibility, shorter hours, shorter commutes, less physical risk and other factors conducive to their choice to be primary parents, an option men still largely don’t have. That is why never-married childless women outearn their male counterparts, and female corporate directors now outearn their male counterparts.
Women 'opt out' of career success [cnn.com]: Farrell also lists dozens of careers, including fields of science, where women outearn men. Women simply have more options than men to be primary parents, and many of them exercise that option rather than work long, stressful hours. That is why 57% of female graduates of Stanford and Harvard left the workforce within 15 years of entry into the workforce.This is an option few men have (try being a single male and telling women on the first date that you want to stay home).
‘Sea change’ seen in spouses’ financial roles [nbcnews.com]: Blaming men for women’s choices is unfair. In fact research shows most men have no problem with their wives outearning them.
Survey: Working dads want more family time [cnn.com]: Research also shows most working dads would quit or take a pay cut to spend more time with kids if their spouses could support the family.
More parents share the workload when mom learns to let go [usatoday.com]: Research also shows that parents share workloads more when mothers allow men to be primary parents.
Is the Wage Gap Women's Choice? [go.com]: ABC News: “Is the Wage Gap Women’s Choice? Research Suggests Career Decisions, Not Sex Bias, Are at Root of Pay Disparity”
“Rape is not the “epidemic” that people are trying to claim it is.It has actually decreased dramatically in the past few decades [latimes.com]-up to 80% since 1979 [samefacts.com],despite an increase in the willingness of victims to report them. This is even further supported bydata directly from the U.S. Bureau of Justice [bjs.gov].

40% of rapists are female [tumblr.com]1 [tumblr.com]
Men want protection against false rape allegations.They feel that a man’s life should not be ruined simply on the allegation of a woman who may be a vindictive liar. Currently, a woman can accuse a man of rape for no reason, and the man’s name is splashed in the paper and his life is ruined. So, they fought for laws granting men anonymity until charged with the crime of rape—not convicted, just charged.
Feministsfought against this [bbc.co.uk], causing it to fail. Also seehere [londonfemi...ork.org.uk], the London Feminist Network campaigning to defeat the proposal.
Men want an end to the justice system favoring women simply because they are women, and giving men harsher sentences simply because they are men.
Feministsfought against this [bbc.co.uk], arguing that no woman should be sent to jail,even women who had murdered multiple people[thisislondon.co.uk].
Men want equal treatment when victims of domestic violence, and to not be arrested for the crime of “being male” under primary aggressor policies.
Feministsfought against this [unh.edu]by trying to suppress evidence showing that half of domestic violence is done by women, by threatening the researchers with bomb threats, death threats, etc. Modern, younger feministsare doing it as well [imgur.com].
Men want female rapists to be arrested, charged, and convicted with rape.In Western countries, women are rarely punished when raping men, due to the biased legal system. In some countries, womencannotbe punished when raping men, since rape is defined as a male-perpetrated crime.
Feminists fought against this inIndia [firstpost.com], arguing that “there is a physicality [in] rape” and that it would make things “more complicated for judges.”
Feminists fought against this inIsrael [jpost.com], claiming that changing the law would result in men filing false rape claims.
Men don’t want to be thrown in jail because they lost their jobs and temporarily cannot pay child support.
Feminists fought against this,trying to lower the amount to $5000 [rinow.org]before a man is guilty of a felony for not paying child support. If a man loses a decent-paying job, he will now be a felon, go to jail, lose his right to vote, AND be unable to find future jobs—if he cannot regain an equal-paying job within a few months.
Men want equal economic support and help from the government.When the recession hit, male-dominated fields like construction lost millions of jobs, while female-fields like education and healthcare gained jobs. So the government proposed an economic stimulus for those fields.
Feminists successfully fought against this, arguing that it was discrimination to support men, and caused the government to give money to women who didn’t deserve it. [weeklystandard.com]Hundredsof professional feminists complained against the “sexism” of helping men (who had lost jobs) and not women (who had gained jobs).
A representative of the Michigan National Organization for Women testified in opposition to theRevocation of Paternity Act [mi.gov], which stopped the old law which stated that if a woman was married and cheated on her husband, the resulting child is considered to be legally the husband’s and the biological father had no legal rights to fight for custody or parenting time with his biological child.
In 2008, a law was passed in England and Wales that allowed long-term domestic violence victims who killed their abuser to be charged with the lesser charge of manslaughter,but this only applies to women.
In California and Montana, a woman can name any man she likes as the father, he gets a letter in the mail,if he does not prove heisn’tthe father within 30 days he is now the father and must pay.He cannot contest it. And DNA tests to prove paternity are not considered proof by the courts.
Women who falsely accuse a man of rape, who would be sent to prison for 10+ years if convicted, only gets fined or a slap on the wrist.
There is also the gender biasin theProbation Departments:
A higher score on the Probation Assessment Tool (PAT) means a recommendation that could lead to eventual dismissal of charges. A lower score means probation or lockup, not to mention the juvenile delinquent tag. [Judge]Hunt claims PAT routinely rewards girls with 14 extra points for gender alone, while boys get 0.
Then there are studies that showwomen who fail to pay child support are incarcerated only 1/8th as often as men with similar violations.
