I Think that this video should have been called "The gender wage gap is not what you think it is" or something like that, since in the video it´s existence is acnowledged.

I do think that the video starts by building a sort of a strawman, when it makes that whole "why are companies not only hireing women when they work cheaper?" thingy. There might be some instances of blatant "I pay you less because you are a woman"- type sexism, but I do also believe that the biggest factor is career choices and life choices, like the video said correctly. The question the video dubiously ommits is why someone takes such a choice. I think it is no coincidence, that many women in a certain age in which careers tend to be made (or broken) "choose" to commit less to the profesional side of their life. Simply because it i expected of them (or there is no alternatie) that they take care of the kids. I do not think that I have to explagiate more what I mean or get into any examples (regarding hiring practices, career choices, aditional qualifications, etc.), I guess you know where I am coming from.

I just wanted to write you this as perspective from a guy who thinks that the wage gap is a problem, and that said problem does not primarily consist of evildoers going "hurr durr let´s pay her less cause she has no penis! yeeeah!" (like some people might want you to think)

a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)

That’s exactly the appropriate response.

What a trip.

Wow these photos are stunning

Some of these outfits are the raddest things I’ve ever seen.

Can we talk about the tights.

The existence of photos like these (and similar photos from the 70s and 80s and so on) makes me wonder yet again why current-day movies set in this time never seem to be able to get the hair and clothing right.

Zum Abschluss eine gute Faustregel: Wenn Sie eine Methode für Ihr Kind in Erwägung ziehen, sollten Sie zuerst darüber nachdenken, ob Sie diese auch bei Ihren besten Freunden anwenden würden. Wenn die Antwort ein Nein ist, dann ist es wahrscheinlich auch eine schlechte Idee, diese Methode bei Ihrem Kind einzusetzen. Es sei denn, Sie gehören zu dem Teil der Erwachsenen, die noch nicht erkannt haben, dass Kinder echte Menschen sind.
