> ignores the glaring fact that certaintly in the UK women are legally entitled to 12 months paid maternity leave, while men are not.

Some facts to spoil your little misogynistic rant:

- UK statutory maternity leave can be shared, so men are equally entitled

- UK statutory maternity leave is 39 weeks (50 if shared)

- the first 6 weeks is at 90% of average weekly earnings

- the remaining 33 weeks is at £145.18 (or 90% of AWE if lower)

Managing on £145 per week is hardly the holiday you're insinuating. But since you appear to be a SJW I suggest you have a go when you have a child.
