Men: "The earth is round, facts." Women: "Flat earth, feelings!" Why do women demand that leadership positions should be filled by women who don't have the same experience as men AND who won't put in the same amount of hours at work as men? In other words, women do NOT believe in meritocracy!

The blonde confuses sexism with sex biology - men and women choose different careers based on biological differences & preferences --- women don't want to get dirty like plumbers/construction workers - they want to wear stylish clothes and avoid physical exhaustion.....

Any time I see a discussion about the gender wage gap, the first thing I want to do is make everyone define what they mean by "gender wage gap" in the first place. For some, it is the idea that on a broad scale, men and women are doing the exact same job with the same experience, performance, etc and women are just getting paid 78% of what men get just because. That has been proven untrue ad infinitum and doesn't even make economic sense. What is true is that if you take all of the money that women make per capita, then divide it by all of the money men make per capita, then yes, women make some fraction of that. But there are probably dozens of reasons for that, not all of which are related to this patriarchy I keep hearing about. It's probably more accurate to say that there is a gender pay gap, but not a gender *wage* gap. But that's probably a bit too nuanced for the believers.

If it was women who suffered 98% of work related deaths, they would drop this myth like it had Aids.. And that would be feminisms' number 1 issue by far!!

That blonde woman is clearly just angry at men. She blames sexism for something that doesn't even exist. Think about this, The UK, USA and Australia/New Zealand all somehow have the same numerical division in statistics, despite the MASSIVE difference in numbers of citizens. For example how is the gap 78% in Australia with 25million people, and the gap is the same in the USA with 350+million. There was an interview with Australian feminists who admitted they take women who work part time (15-25 hours) and round their hours up to 38 without rounding up their income total. So they basically told us that they manipulated the statistics to CREATE a pay gap and they refuse to explain why or wha the figures would show without the manipulation.

As studied in the link below, the top-20 female fields make around $10k less than the top-20 fields that males graduate from and then work in. If they are gonna make all fields 50/50 despite applicants being so lopsided when it comes to sex, then I guess 50% of nurses, K-12 teachers, hair dressers and interior designers are gonna be male now.

I love arguing this because I just stay with facts like the guy in the video but I usually have twist for the end. I show those that I debate gender wage gap that my wife makes way more money then me (basic salary + bonus). They usually happy with that and try to say that this is just single incident (funny to note my wife works in completely different field then me but I don't even bring that up) but the twist is when I show them my and my wife's P60 for previous year and gross income is higher for me. I love the confusion on their face and then I bring my payslips that clearly show that I work 2 out of 5 weeks doing shift work and that I do 3 to 4 times amount of weekends then my wife + that my wife takes usually days off option for the weekend and I take mostly cash option... This was debunked so many times already and does not require much time to research, why people still believe this is crazy to me.

Stay at home mom here 🙋🏼‍♀️ I definitely get paid less then a man now (no pay for being a mom) but it’s the best career choice I’ve ever made. When I was in the work force I got paid just as much as then men. Women make different career choices and therefore get paid less. It’s not sexist. Stop whining

Wage gap? What the real issue here should be is.. why the American economy now typically requires 2 incomes for a family instead of just 1 anymore. Latch-key kids, or being raised by daycares, or just a general lack of parental presence and guidance, is why this generation of kids are so messed up that they want to go shoot up their schools. Single-parents and divorced families aren't helping that situation either. Wage gap is not nearly the problem, it's wages period, in making all people work when someone should be home with the kids. Bring back the economy that supports nuclear families with 1 breadwinner.

There is premium paid to those who are willing to do dangerous work. If women want to sign up for dangerous work than by all means go ahead. But I’m sorry not many women wanting to be plumbers to deal with shit, or to hang off the side of bridge to repair it... Or the fact that women naturally are more prone to go after jobs like social work or nursing and man aren’t... We much more oppressed by thoughts in our head then society...

Here are some factors on why men tend to earn more - * Men choose higher paying jobs. Women tend to focus on jobs caring for others - teachers, nurses, daycare, home health workers, etc...while men enjoy STEM fields which are higher paying. * Men put in more hours at work than women do and therefore are earning more if paid by the hour or earn more in commissions for making more sales. * Because men put in more hours and maybe work nights and weekends, they get more experience and are therefore more valuable which justifies pay raises and promotions. * Likewise, men are twice as long to be in jobs that require "overwork"...jobs that regularly require extra long hours on a regular basis without gtting paid overtime. These jobs include doctors, lawyers, and senior managers. * Women often leave the workforce to have kids. This means that when/if they return, they have to start from scratch while the men who were hired originally with the women have been promoted. * Women aren't as aggressive in negotiating their pay when hired and/or promoted nor are they as aggressive in seeking/demanding promotions. * Women are more likely to stay with a company that turned them down for a raise/promotion. They are risk adverse. Men are less afraid of risk and will look elsewhere if they are passed over for a promotion or are denied a raise. Companies know this and therefore are more likely to give men that raise/promotion rather than face the higher risk of them leaving. * Since women work less than men, companies aren't going to offer women promotions if the promotion would require them to work longer hours. Women won't accept such promotions as often as men and the companies know that she is likely to turn it down so they offer it to the equally qualified man rather than having the man knowing that he was the 2nd choice. * Since women tend to seek husbands who earn more than they do, women are much more likely to have a higher earning spouse than a man. This means that the women will be less likely to accept a promotion requiring more time/travel since she may not need the money as much as the man with a lower earning spouse. the woman's husband is also less likely to accept the wife being on the job more hours and he will also be less willing to move if the woman's promotion requires it. He may not be able to make the same money if the new town while the spouse of the male employee will be much more likely to find similar paying work. These factors discourage women from accepting such promotions and knowing this, the company is also less likely to offer it to a woman over an equally qualified man. * Women with higher earning husbands feel less pressure to enter less attractive, but higher paying fields. They gravitate to jobs that they like. Men tend to have lower earning spouses and therefore are forced to choose higher paying jobs, even if it's much less enjoyable. All of the above show why men, on an annual basis, earn more than women. There is nothing that attributes the difference to sexism. It's all about personal choices that men and women freely make.

@John Case Dunno what 97% figure you're on about tbh. I am glad this false data was found, now attempt to disprove the other thousands of papers which proclaim the same conclusion. There are other greenhouse gasses - as well as CO2 - that also contribute to climate change via the greenhouse effect, like methane or H2O. yes, water vapour is a greenhouse gas.
John Case (2 months ago)
@Ben Goodwin No. I'm saying that 97% figure was a false figure from the start. (Inaccurately offered to imply a consensus) Plus they are peddling a carbon dioxide narrative that is clearly false. They claim carbon dioxide causes global temps to rise. Yet a simple ice core study shows the carbon dioxide levels during the ice age were 4X higher than today. There is also instances where individuals at NASA as well as NOAA have altered historical data to further their global warming narrative. When science starts falsifying data....That's when Science has been weaponized by Politics.

John Case you’re calling scientific documents; vetted and scrutinised by design fake? I enjoy people like you but the crazy gets you nowhere. Greenhouse effect firstly; look it up. Then look at the effects of burning coal in China; after that the tilt of the earth and its effect on climate. Maybe look up proof of the round earth too!
John Case (2 months ago)
@Ben Goodwin No it's not. If you believe the whole "97% consensus" narrative, then you are drinking liberal lies. When people are caught altering historical weather data to help protect the narrative, when dire predictions come and go, when outcomes turn out the opposite of predicted....then maybe it's time for you to start questioning the validity of the storytellers.

The white lady in the red is a idiot. Male nurse's make more because they work more hours this is a FACT, and more males have master degrees then women, been down this road a million times my daughter is a nurse I hear it from her all the time. The hospital Tielah works at the men average 56 hours a week where women are around 44 hours a week, The men also purse management positions more then the women. there is no sexisim here its a personal choice.

The wage gap is not real If it was everyone would hire women,because profit is what businesses look at. But no company does this, because it's not REAL.

I've been so confused about the wage gap recently. When I first heard of it, I immediately knew that it couldn't be true. I did research and found very little. I almost believed it existed for a while. The closest I got was writing a paper arguing against feminism in my research class. Both of the teachers are liberal feminists, so I busted my ass to get the facts. I was seriously questioning it because they both believe in the pay gap, and their literal job is to teach people how to do research and find good, well sourced and proven facts, so if anyone would know, they would! But alas, they must have found some bad research because they believe it wholeheartedly.

I have a tip. Next time you do this interview, take this graph with you: https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/02/does-gender-equality-result-in-fewer-female-stem-grads Ask them, what they think before you show them the data. Ask, whether there are more females in STEM in countries with higher freedom (US, Finland, Germany) or with lower freedom (Turkey, Algeria). Then show them the facts and ask for their explanation. I wonder what they might say. Because this is direct oposite to what feminism predicts. Plus, in countries like Sweden, Finland, all universities are free. So, there are no objective constraints that may be stopping girls from choosing STEM.
animaljp3 (2 months ago)
Stem fields anyone can get in. Leadership roles sound like you have to know people and have money to get in. That is not the same especially when leadership roles sounds a lot different then any non leadership roles and shouldn't feminism say leadership gap instead of attacking the normal jobs.
