    From http://www.2checkout.com/faqs.htm#chargebacks:

    The amount of credit card fraud you experience will vary according to the type of products you sell. Products which appeal to children, teenagers, and unmarried men will experience a higher degree of credit card fraud. Products which are purchased primarily by professionals, women, and families will experience a lower amount of fraud.

      Even so, when men say the very little thing about women, it's chauvinism... but saying that if you are a male you are more likely to be a criminal is ok?

        it's not about that. and i don't think that's the implication. but the products that are more oriented towards men cause indeed more fraud.

          for the same reason there are more men who are serial killers, rapists, etc...

          men have higher criminal and dangerous tendencies.

          it's not male bashing. it is statistics.

          i find it insulting when someone automatically treats me differently because i am a male, as that is acting in a prejudiced fashion. however, i don't believe that quoting statistics is offensive.

                Yup double standards abound in this world. I guess the dominant ones have to allow others to throw a few punches for free... you know... to even the playing field.
                Well, there it is.

                  FYI in majority of us states there are officialy ZERO female rapists. Want to know why? Most states legislature says only a man can rape, a woman can't.

                      Tell me about it!

                      My cousin who's 18's been asked for 1000 for his insurance!!

                      I guess in 4 years when I probably get a car and get it insured, it'll be costing a good few grand per year

                        I turned 25 this year, and my insurance was halved.

                        But hey. This isn't about double-standards. It's about statistics. Individually, you can't say to a guy, "You're more likely to commit credit card fraud because you are a man." Because on an individual basis, one's gender is a very small proportion of the factors that predict future behavior. But you can, on the whole, say, "Men are more likely to commit credit card fraud than women." That's the truth. Fewer incidents of fraud are committed by women than by men.

                        Insurance is a business that succeeds or fails based on its employees' skill with statistics. They know some groups -- as groups -- are more likely to have incidents with their vehicles that will cost them. Hell, I'm a great driver, but I had a freak accident once where I hit a deer. There's no way anyone could have predicted that. But I drive a LOT more than my female counterparts, so yes, the likelihood of me having an accident would go up, so as a guy, they have to hedge their bets with me and charge me higher rates. Men drive more than women. That says nothing about their character; but it does have a very direct impact on their insurance rates.

                        Of course, Feminists Gloria Steinem/Allred would disagree... After all, women are EXACTLY like men in every respect. The only reason why they exhibit any differences is because society tells them they're different.

                              I don't think it's possible for a guy to get raped by a female....because:

                              (A) It isn't Rape unless it's forced
                              (B) Because of the intense fear/disgustedness, you will not get an erection, and without that they're's no intercourse!

                              I learned that in some class at school...:P
