Women make 77cents to every mans $1
"Many men tend to go into science and engineering fields which generally pay more. Women who stay at home with children are factored in as earning nothing. Therefore, the 77 cent stat is a misleading one.”
However, this argument forgets the part where women who go in to science and engineering fields, who have the same educational background as their male counterparts, the same amount of experience as their male counterparts, STILL end up making less money in their lifetime than their male counterparts. That’s what the whole Lilly Ledbetter v Goodyear was about; Ledbetter made less than her male coworkers even though she was as qualified or had more seniority than some. And if you tell me the Supreme Court ruled against Ledbetter, I know this and they said it was because she didn’t file the suit within 180 days of her first paycheck way back in 1979 when she didn’t know her pay was going to be less than her male coworkers.
I love and hate Dianne Feinstein. In my political life, many issues contribute to how I feel about politicians.
On the one hand, Feinstein is very progressive when it comes to reproductive rights (including supporting teaching sex ed in schools, funding abortion clinics, providing free contraceptives, etc).
On the other hand, Feinstein supports the NSA in their fight to tap e-mail accounts and phones of journalists, which goes explicitly against our First Amendment rights.
On the one hand, Feinstein supports reducing defense funding and raising taxes on the rich.
On the other hand, Feinstein supports tax incentives for businesses who “create jobs,” which really just means tax loopholes for corporations.
I’m 50/50 with Feinstein; however, taking in to account that there is so much controversy over her and that she has been a serious political player for something like 35 years, if she does run again in 2018 I will most likely not vote for her.
When The Media Treats White Suspects And Killers Better Than Black Victicms.
First the cops said Mike Brown stole candy from a store. Then the store denied any such thing happened. Then the cops claimed Brown was trying to wrestle the gun from the cop in the car…despite the fact all the witnesses claim he was several feet away from the car and never near it.
IMO, by the time the Ferguson cops are done, they’ll have claimed Brown also shot Lincoln, JFK, Biggie and Tupac.
Anonymous asked: There is no patriarchy. There is no patriarchy. There is no patriarchy. There is no patriarchy. There is no patriarchy. There is no patriarchy. There is no patriarchy.
What makes you think that?
It couldn’t be the fact that women on average make 77 cents for every 1 dollar their male counterparts make. It couldn’t be for the fact that it’s men who are legislating away women’s health care (including birth control and abortion services). It couldn’t be because when a gay male bluntly and overtly hits on a straight male, the straight male gets offended because suddenly he’s being treated the way he treats women. It couldn’t be because of the hundreds of women who have acid thrown on their faces because they decline a marriage proposal.
I have no idea what would make you think there is no patriarchy. Please, do enlighten me.
This isnttrue at all.
Op is guilty of:
Using the wage gap myth that has been debunked many times
Spreading misinformation about birth control and bodily autonomy (abortions haven’t been made illegal, only reatricted, and they’re not taking away a woman’s right to birth control they’re just allowing businesses to not cover certain types of birth control)
Appropriating homophobia and lgbt issues by making it about women.
Congrarulations. You suck.
… to think abortion is not being made illegal is ignorance. Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, North and South Dakota, and Wyoming all have only 1 clinic left that provides abortion services after massive anti-abortion legislation. An evaluation of anti-abortion laws in the US shows that 24 states enacted 53 anti-choice measures in 2013, which means more pro-life laws that have been passed in the past 2 years than in the past 10 before that combined. To say abortions haven’t been taken away is ignorance; if there’s 1 abortion clinic left in the state, and its 200+ miles from where a woman lives, that’s taking away a woman’s right to safe abortions. I suggest you read this article and enlighten yourself. And if you point out the low abortion rate in states that have only 1 clinic left, it’s because women can’t get to the clinic so they’re still having abortions, they’ve just become extremely unsafe: it’s called a coat hanger.
So I was wrong about abortions. Doesn’t make anything else I’ve said wrong.
Your argument still sucks as for why we need feminism.
Do you want me to rip apart your other arguments too? Cause I will if you want, that was just the one I chose to address.
"There is no patriarchy"
Yeah, sure. Whoever submitted that needs to just crawl back into their over-privileged hole and keep their mouths shut.
