If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Why isn't there WIC specifically geared for them?

They're part of the patriarchy. They oppress Lena Dunham.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Can she get an appetite oppressant?

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Apparently it's just another part of their 'privilege'.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

what are you talking about? it's about protecting women & children in low income families. it's not about solving homelessness

Who needs more protection, low income families, or those literally homeless?

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

it's like saying, what the hell is wrong with cancer research, don't they realise people have diabetes!?

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Because of the Wage Gap. Those men would get more of the WIC proceeds than the Women would.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Maybe Audi should do a super-bowl commercial addressing that.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

84 lumber is already on it.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

The world would be a better place if Audi made more commercials as political statements.

Audi received a ton of backlash for that ad... here's a sample:

Brenda Real @Kicker_Mom
@Audi What specifically have you done to address it? Action or feel-good Fluff?

Audi @Audi
@Kicker_Mom On 12/15/16, we signed the Equal Pay Pledge to commit to women's equality in the workplace. audi.us/2ktrlMK

Tia @RickardTia
@Audi @Kicker_Mom so before you did this you paid your women employees 21% less???


or

Prepper Frog @TueborFrog
@Audi You pay you female employees less than males? You know that's against the law, right?

Audi @Audi
@TueborFrog When we account for all the various factors that go into pay, women at Audi are on par with their male counterparts.

(t)(h)(e)(u)(n)(i)(v)(e)(r)(s)(a)(l)(c)(y)(n)(i)(c) @CynicalUniversal
@Audi @TueborFrog You just explained away the "wage gap" that you claimed exists. So exactly what are you supporting if it doesn't exist?

or

Amy Nazer @amynazer
@Audi Your website lists oly 2 women on your US exec team and no women on your board. Does your commitment to progress stop at equal pay?

Audi @Audi
@amynazer We've pledged to put aggressive hiring and development strategies in place to increase the number of women in our workforce.

Nick Sharp @thatnicksharp
@Audi @amynazer so instead of merit hiring will be based on genitalia. How progressive.

Why isn't there WIC specifically geared for them?

Why isn't there a Women, Infants, and Children program tailored for homeless MEN?

You didn't really think that one through, did you?

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Are Transgender "Women" eligible for WIC??

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Dumbass, he knows what it stands for...hes asking why it doesn't include men too.


Would you like me to tell you the little story of right hand/left hand?

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Exactly. Men are homeless much more often than both women & children are.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

If it was a program that had to do with being homeless you'd have a good point.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

With it being called WIC...doesn't that leave out single fathers?

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

I'm not sure why a single father would need the nutrition boost during the mother of his baby's pregnancy or nursing. If is the one raising infants or children then they would qualify under that.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

It's a program for pregnant women, infants and children. Not women in general.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

BTW, if you actually care, here is a list of homelessness charities, you can donate to one or more of them!

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Because women are kidnapped off the streets, beaten, threatened, and pimped out. jealous men???


When I was younger and I had an overnight bag to go to a friends house..the pimps were on me like white on rice..thought I was a run away.

Re: If 80%+ of the homeless are men in the U.S…..

Because women get pregnant, and those small incomes overwhelmingly have custody of children with little to no child support.


The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides Federal grants to States for supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional risk.
