Sam Smethers, chief executive of the Fawcett Society, which campaigns for gender equality, suggested more senior roles would go to women if they were offered on a part-time, or job-share, basis.

How the fuck does this work? How are you supposed to lead a team part time?

DiamondMask, chief executive of the Me Society, which campaigns for Me, suggested more senior roles would go to Me if Me didn't actually have to live up normal job requirements.

I think it has to do with the Bears that they attract monthly. If captured and trained right you only have to work part time, as they do the work for you.

Out of curiosity have you read The One Who Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest?

It was strongly against the matriarchy, but is not very famous for this

MUH WAYJ GAP

As a underprivileged penis-carrying snowflake, am I entitled to censor the shit out of feminists now? I'll be clement and I won't take advantage of this new superpower too much, I promise.

Sorry, the penis disqualifies you. However, if you chop off your penis and wear a dress you stand a good chance at being on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

The wage gap never existed, at least not in the form talked about in the last decade or two. Instead, the more accurate term for what they're trying to describe is the effort gap.

There's an effort gap between men and women, and that's why men work their way towards positions where they earn more money.

This isn't even necessarily a bad thing. A free society should allow people to go to reasonable lengths to pursue the lifestyle that they want to achieve. A society can function quite well without 100% of its members going balls-to-the-wall, heart-attack-at-45 levels of career commitment. Let the people who want to do that do it. That's what it means to have equal opportunity.

Exactly! Let people choose what they fucking want! Fretting over pay disparities is so dehumanizing. It is to treat people as if they are all identical distributions of robots rather than people, some of whom choose other goals than high pay careers. It shouldn't be a standard of society to equal this out even if the narrative of the 'wage gap' myth were true. Let women choose lives that don't have comparative remuneration to men if they want! Let them have kids and treat those kids right by staying home to raise them. Its a perfectly noble and wonderful choice to make! For christs sakes, stop trying to take the humanity out of people by making them all the same. Its like cutting off people's heads to make us all the same height. Its fucking crazy.

It may very well exist in the near future, however. The continued propaganda of the wage gap myth, described as the systematic bogeyman oppression of female income is pushing employers (and terrifyingly in some areas policymakers) to consider offering higher salaries to women, to avoid social persecution. This would systematically create a wage gap by ensuring the female workers gain a privileged salary over their male job-for-job counterparts.

This is the evil of affirmative action thinking and social justice. Inevitably it create imbalances.

We're not there yet, surely, and I'm confident it can be stopped, but it is nonetheless a possible outcome.

I like how this article disguises itself as being against perpetuating the myth of the wage gap, and then turns around to spew the same garbage that we've heard every uneconomically minded feminist rant about incessantly. I wonder if they'll finally be happy when all children are born in surrogate, raised by machines, and all CEO's work 20 hours a week.

Well yeah, because all the jobs being created these days are for bartenders and servers, regardless of gender.

Yup. When I was job searching in college it took me months to find a job, and it ended up being at a recycling center (basically manual labor). My girlfriend of the time applied to all the same jobs, and got multiple offers her first week for retail and service jobs.

I am still amazed that people can work at recycling centers, it's just a disassembly line of garbage that makes you hate humanity.

I honestly think young women get jobs because it's usually old men in senior positions hiring them.

Why must women always be the victim?

They make more than men in their 20s, but that's not good enough to talk about as the issue for them is "resolved", but in their 30s where men make more, it's the big problem now.

Its because they're mentally and physically weaker than males. If we didn't treat them gently, they wouldn't be able to survive in the world. Being born female is basically like being born with a handicap

I experienced this when I got hired in the environmental industry. She started 6 months after me and with identical education; same university, same degrees, same teachers, graduating one semester later. After poking around I found that her base pay is ~10% higher. Not only that, but I'm volunteered for the vast majority of the field work and spend most work weeks and many weekends away from home.
