Man, this topic has gone on for too long, I’m sick of how stupid it is.

[–]ivanoud17 points18 points  (3 children) | Copy

And yet the idiots keep spouting this. Especially ones who just got roped into liberal bullshit.

[–]Tilinn12 points13 points  (1 child) | Copy

Because it's always easier to blame something bigger than just the fact that physical and psychological factors apply to jobs.

[–]ivanoud7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Definitely. It's easier to blame than actually work for it. They want high salary given without getting dirty.

[–]Canis_Lupus__1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Waht

You talking about the wage gap or people posting memes about it? Bcs the wage gap is fake and people need to know that

[–]The_Other_Smith4 points5 points  (5 children) | Copy

Well the wage gap is real but not for the reasons people say it is. It isnt because people hate women.

[–]rbecker2600 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Wait I’m curious can u tell me a reason

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (1 child) | Copy

Women aren’t drawn to the same fields, their careers are often interrupted by pregnancy, they choose safer jobs and don’t work as long hours.

The wage gap absolutely exists, as in men as a collective earn more than women as a collective. It’s also massively skewed by the fact the richest people in the world are men. The 1%. This is called the apex fallacy, where you look at the minority at the top of the pyramid and ignore the bottom. This is what feminists do when they point to a handful of male CEOs, leaders, and men working in highly specialised STEM positions and ignore the masses of homeless men, men who drop out of university, and men who are unemployed. Women under 36 actually out-earn their male peers, so if you are talking about millennials the “wage gap” is actually reversed. Do you think feminists are going to start campaigning for men under forty to be paid more anytime soon?

The problem is the people who believe it exists as a feminist grievance are thick. Many of them literally think that when a man and woman are doing the same job, the man gets paid more. Despite the fact this has been illegal longer than 99% of people reading this have been alive, and there are a host of government agencies specifically dedicated to investigating and enforcing those cases.

Beyond that it doesn’t even make any sense. Because if you could pay a woman less to do the same job, why would anyone employ a man? There isn’t a corporation in the world that chooses sexism over profit.

So if you are statistically illiterate and think the best way to measure people’s power and welfare are how much they earn, this difference can seem a good indicator something is wrong. Then if you make an extra leap and think that any time women don’t perform as well as men it can be attributed to discriminatory sexism against women... well there you go.

The reason the wage gap myth refuses to die is it’s a wonderful recruiting tool for feminists. For a very long time rape was their hook. Nearly every woman is terrified of being raped by men. So by lying about the rate this happened, and claiming that police simply wouldn’t believe a woman reporting or do anything about it, feminists got recruits.

Then they swapped to domestic violence. The idea that the woman in the house next door was being savagely beaten by her husband every night, and you had no idea because she was just too afraid to do anything. That once again police wouldn’t believe any reports, and we needed an elaborate system of code words in bars and pharmacies like an Underground Railroad instead of just calling fucking 911.

But the terrors of rape and the fantasy of rampant domestic violence have started to sound a bit unconvincing. The numbers of feminists are still falling. So they needed another lie to convince women to be feminists. Which is where we get the wage gap. It went from “be a feminist or you will be raped” to “be a feminist or you will be bashed” to “be a feminist or you will be cheated.”

Because who in the world thinks they are paid as much as they are worth? Who doesn’t like to fantasize that brain surgeons got there with privilege rather than hard work and skill? That if it wasn’t for the fucking patriarchy keeping you down, you could have been a physicist rather than a failed author and barista.

By the metric of welfare and justice that supports this conception, you could choose one random woman in the world and pay her the difference between the gross earnings of men and women, and the wage gap would be gone. Just do this every year with a random woman. That is how little thought and understanding has gone into this complaint.

Well said

[–]Foxenrien0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

It bcs men work more hours in more dangerous jobs and thus make more money on average

[–]The_Other_Smith1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

And it doesnt take into account that women are more likely to take maternity leave and sometimes stop working entirely because women tend to be more family oriented meaning they want to take care of their children

[–]virtualwar123456 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

Noice

Requirements for disproving the wage gap myth:

7th grade math level... or... Knowing how to read.

As demonstrated here: Easiest way to disprove the wage gap myth

[–]feminismIsMisandry01 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Math and women...

[–]GalileosTele0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Kinda ironic... by claiming the wage gap is real, they are only giving credence to the stereotype.

[–]siuksledeze47473 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

If the wage gap was real I’d only hire women to save money.

[–]feminismIsMisandry00 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Everybody knows that's not true... It's just more convenient for feminists to make up excuses.
