skullkrusher: lennavan: You have an actual interest in seeing such a study? No, no you don't you're just being a pedantic douche again. If you did have an actual interest you would have googled it yourself. Keep on bein you, skullkrusher.

no, I'd like to see such a study. It would be interesting to see the breakdown of what portion of the gender gap can be explained in that way. See, it's not pedantic to ask someone for a study when they are asserting rather sarcastically that one must certainly exist. Of course this response was unnecessary since you really meant to say "I couldn't find one"


I've googled for it and have come up empty aside from a blog entry from a mom asserting that mom's make far less than men relative to childless women. It had assertions with no data backing it up so I didn't find it particularly useful.

lennavan: You don't need a new law, that's sex discrimination.


Perhaps, but I don't care.

skullkrusher: you have a study that does account for those things? Would be a lot more useful to the discussion than your assertion that it exists.

You have an actual interest in seeing such a study? No, no you don't you're just being a pedantic douche again. If you did have an actual interest you would have googled it yourself. Keep on bein you, skullkrusher.


I've seen it. Unfortunately, it makes me feel like I'm informed, and I'm paranoid about the Dunning-Kruger effect.

umad: Paternity leave (lol) should be illegal too.


Let's just take a moment to hash this out. Suppose I'm a small businessman, and I want to give my employees maternity/paternity leave.

So in your ideal world, this would be illegal for me to do? So what exactly happens, I give my employees paid leave, and then I am imprisoned and my property confiscated by the government?

You sound like those tards who think it should be illegal for a private business to have a bilingual phone system.

It is hilarious how the liberals are so stupid that they think this will distract voters from the economy. Oh, what's that? Romney support from women is going through the roof?

Well that's nice. Because calling for people to hurl acid at women in power surely makes this a faux war on women. The Republican party isn't the party of misogyny, comrade, we've always supported women. Think of it as free facials and exfoliation, they'll love that.

/Employs thousands of women at 70% of manpay. No, actually no one does that in America.


I'm too lazy to find the article, but I've read that part of the reason women get paid less than men is because they tend not to negotiate for higher salaries during their initial hiring. Instead, they tend to accept the initial low ball offer of the hiring company.

You also could have said "I didn't get the reference from the joke you made earlier, so I didn't realize you clearly had one."

Another common retort: Women make less because they tend to choose occupations that make less. Teachers and nurses make less than construction workers and whatever else is male dominated. That one can be addressed with this one:

TheShavingofOccam123: Women, just remember what the American Taliban Party (GOP) wants to do to women:

Top 10 Shocking Attacks from the GOP's War on Women

1) Republicans not only want to reduce women's access to abortion care, they're actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven't yet. Shocker.

2) A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to "accuser." But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain "victims."

3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (Yep, for real.)

4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids.

5) In Congress, Republicans have a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life.

6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids' preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working.

7) And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool.

8) Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.

9) Congress just voted for a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country.

10) And if that wasn't enough, Republicans are pushing to eliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program. (For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses. You can't make this stuff up).


Awww, fark. American Taliban, indeed.

keylock71: These people disgust me... And it's not because of "ideological differences", either. These people are mean-spirited, closed-minded, ass backwards assholes. They want to drag this country back into the stone ages.

I have no problems with thoughtful, intelligent opinions even if I disagree with them strongly... But this (and the numerous other examples the GOP has provided in recent years) are nothing but ignorance and hatred.

Frankly, ignorance and hatred are all I've seen coming from the GOP recently. These people aren't "conservatives"... They're unhinged, radical regressivists.


The scary thing is that there are enough ignorant people motivated by hate and fear to put these people in power. Given the educational systems in Red States it shouldn't be surprising though. Part of the reason Republicans want to cut school funding is that it is an investment into their party's future. Which is sad really because they used to be the intellectual party before they went after the Southern Bible Pounders. It rolled downhill quickly and now all that is left is NeoCons(corrupt and greedy), Tea Baggers (ignorant and loud), and the Bibble Pounders(hatefilled big brother enthusiasts).
