    Unfair. This would mean that women are inferior, less capable, and not able to compete on a level playing field. It is horribly demeaning to the many accomplished women that did it on their own.

    Not everything can be done by judging injustice. So it seems more logical to me not to do justice in this case.

    The reason women were added to the law affirmative action, which made companies who did not promote Black and other people of color to middle to upper management even when they had more education, more experience, and more time with the company, the same companies would also do this to women.  The last major case was the leadbetter law.  Which in court found out that Ms. leadbetter who had more education and trained most of the past and current men who became managers at her work, and all the men she trained were paid more to start with then she was paid, and over 20 years all the men managers she trained within a few years were actually making more money then she was after being with the company for 5,10,15,18, years.  Same with banks would never give a woman a loan, even if the woman had as good credit or better then men who asked for a loan and got it.  Unless the woman was already very rich, most banks did not give woman loans.  So the Small business advantage is making banks be fair to women with their loans.  And since the banks shown they were unfair to women giving loans as they were to Blacks and other people of color, The government came up with the Affirmitive Action law.  That since banks were unfair for the last 50 yrs to Blacks, people of color, and women, they were forced to give 10% of their loans had to be given to women.  If they did not, they would get a penalty, a fine.  So the advantage women get in a small buiness is just to make sure the lowest requirement a man need to get a small business loan a woman gets. So because women were unfairly refused loans for so long, the banks are required to make sure 10% of business loans are given to women.  That means if they only can give 1000 small business loans of $25,000 100 of them must be given to women owned businesses.  For one bank if 1500 people ask for loans and 200 are women and 1300 are men, at least half of the women asking for loans would get it, where 900 or 77% of the men asking for a loan would get it.  Same goes for government or miltiary contracts, a certian precentage of blacks, women and other minorities must be given some of those contracts.  of course must qualify for that contract.  Again, if their are 10 contracts, since women are now part of a minority all the minority people make up about 40%, women are the highest in that group.  So out of 10, 2 contracts would go to women,  1 goes to a Black own business, a 1 for all other minorities, and 6 could go to men owned business.  If there are 20 business who put in for those government contracts, some men would have to wait, or lose out.  I would hope, that if we are talking about government contracts, and everything is equal, then the business' who did not get a contract this year would be put at the top of the list for next years contracts.

    @Observer: Check your taxes from those days and then compare them to a business owned by a man. Notice anything odd? 

    Answer:

    If fairness is the goal then there is no way to argue that female owned business is fair. 

    On that note, these kind of advantages actually drive men to claim their wife is the owner of the business even if their wife knows little about the business and is not involved in any aspect of the business. The government however does not know this, so they end up giving the advantages to the man.

    @G: Can you give an example of the creatively that female owned businesses add to the economy?

    Yes.  This is necessary to raise women from their oppression.  Anyone who opposes this is clearly sexist.
