To be fair, the headline is pretty clickbait-y. It's technically true that female students got more time, but so did the men. Clever little journalist (or more likely editor).

Oh ****, you're right about the title (that's just the title of the article), my bad, but stop being a nonce for gender baiting.

I didn't title the article, just posted it as it was written. But you're right, the author is a twat for wording it that way.

But if it was women getting more time than men, I'd be pissed. But that is not the case. And I am not gender baiting.

Which I mentioned in a slightly later post. My insult for that was retracted.

Yes, pointing out gender inequality is TOTALLY the same thing as gender baiting.
