I thought I'd share something I found interesting today to serve as a reminder that, despite what feminists will tell you, women don't have it so bad and sometimes men out and out get a raw deal. The BBC has run an article detailing David Cameron's (British Prime Minister) intention to "tackle the gender pay gap". He intends to "pressure" firms into boosting women's wages.
Depressing stuff, huh? If you've done your reading you will know that the gender pay gap is a myth and that studies repeatedly confirm that women absolutely, 100% get paid the same wages for the same job when performing at the same ability. You'll also know that this mean's that, should it pass, Cameron's proposal could potentially turn the tide well in favour of women in the workforce by essentially forcing companies to pay women more for them doing the same job or forcing companies to pay a lesser performing woman the same as a man who works his backside off.
But there is hope. The comment section of the general public absolutely rejects the gender pay gap. Normal, every day people simply are not taking this lying down; the general public know it is a lie and are starting to have the guts to speak out against it. Mr Joe Public are starting to see the feminist agenda as out of control and are actively calling out initiatives that add bloated support to a group of people based solely on the genitals they were born with.
What should we take from this?
A developed western country wants to force firms into paying people more money if they are female. This is a cold, hard reminder that if you're a man no-one will go out of their way to do you favours. If you're a woman and want to succeed people will bend over backwards to help you. If you're a man? You're on your own.
The common man isn't so easily spoon fed nonsense. People are waking up.
