Re: Proposed Pennsylvania sentencing algorithm to use sex to determine sentencing

Thanks to Phyllis Schlafly it's still OK to discriminate by gender.


Only in one direction of course. They wouldn't dare apply the same actuarial risk analysis to health insurance, retirement, income tax etc.

Women are financial parasites.

(FastFourierTerraform)
The report literally notes that if they stop giving free "low risk" points to women for being women, then it results in more women being classified as high risk. They also note, incredulously, that the classifications for men (who receive no "low risk points") are unchanged.

Fucking idiots.

(BlueOrange22)
Two blatant

Removing gender has a marginal impact on the accuracy of the sentence risk assessment instrument. Overall, the accuracy rate is still moderate to strong and the accuracy of low and high risk predictions remain essentially the same. However, removing gender results in fewer females classified as low risk and more females classified as high risk.


This argument makes no sense. There are saying that men are more likely to be considered "high risk" because they are more likely to comment violent crimes, but this makes no sense because the individual factors of a case would be obviously evident during the trial. There isn't a need to calculate a risk

It's completely unfair because it would automatically apply to people regardless of their crime; so a man would have an automatically higher sentence even if he commits a non-violent crime. It's completely illogical and unjust.

The racial component, btw, is written as to increase the risk factor for white suspects, So really, this is written to maximum punishment and sentences for white males. White men will automatically receive the harshest possible treatment. However, of course, all men are affected by the male component. A man will be punished in court simply for being a man, regardless of circumstance.

Note how unnecessarily convoluted the language and wording are- this is done intentional to mask an intentionally bigoted and disingenuous idea. This is a stepping stone towards a dystopian and segregated society.
