i didnt watch the videos or really read too much of this thread. but i will say that i think that wage gap talk is often just feminists talkin outta their asses lmao. a lot of ppl either dont realize or dont care that physically demanding and high injury risk jobs are usually held by men. thats certainly a reason they would get paid more.
No actually, it's not. And neither is the glass ceiling effect.

i disagree. ive heard countless times the whole 77 cents for every dollar argument which is complete garbage because the people spewing it are insinuating that the reason for that ratio is because of sexism. most ppl who tote that stat don't use logic or rational thought when talkin about the subject thats the problem

i agree about the glass ceiling cause you can't give someone a racecar and give the others bicycles and minivans and expect everyone to finish at the same time. but i do think its overblown and most ppl who complain about it arent directly affected by it. it ties into my thoughts ive posted many times about our cultures love and obsession with bein seen by others as victims. plus the mindset of some ppl that i personally as a white male should live a life of guilt or whatever. <---- thats a minority of ppl but that irks me but ive learned to shrug it off and dont even care about those ppl anymore as i got older

It continually boggles the mind that even though society in the West is utterly dominated by the market, there exists no shortage of people who have no idea how a market functions.

Labour of lesser value gets paid less.

Have mercy on the poor.
