1920-1960s, when men were united in egalitarianism

First they had property, salary, and vote.

In 1980 they get Real Careers, and in 2010 they get to go to university.

This fits in very well with my belief that gender politics are a zero-sum game wherein the sexes battle for the same ~8 rights.

I like how the 8.6% at the end is just as high as the 9.0 preceding it, and higher than the 8.8.

The location of the labels for the axes also makes all the peaks look closer to 10%. Or maybe I'm just reading too much into it, at that point.

Holy poo poo that was published? That must have been part of a bigger thing right? There is some graph just beside that one where that scale makes sense right?

You see this kind of thing all the time; there's almost certainly another panel next to it using the same scale that does have some action. It could actually be more misleading, in that context, to use a more zoomed in Y axis for this panel.

Yeah that's what I meant with "being part of a bigger figure". Presented like this on its own it's pretty drat bad.

Amazing. They found a way to graph two Y-axis without an X-axis and there are multiple places on both lines where they move from right to left. Also, I think they're saying Nixon made money off drug control.

And now there is academic debate over how to even characterize how these charts are so bad.

I've seen a similar graph but expanded with future projections, including a second hole marking the MUSLIM DARK AGES and then after that exponential scientific growth caused the singularity.
