To a lot of people, women with dyed hair are the equivalent of men with fedoras.
Well, first thing first, contrary to what most of the people seem to think of me I’m actually not an anti-feminist in any way. I’m just against bullshit and shitty or wrong arguments. Like the argument that women are paid less than men, for the same job, just because they are women.
Most people seems to misunderstand the sources they provide, when the source speaks of difference in wage between a typical full-time working man and a typical full-time working woman, it isn’t talking about a man and a woman doing the same job. Although it’s true that AVERAGELY a woman make 0.75$ to a man’s dollar, it doesn’t mean that women are paid less because they are women. This is one of the sources that people like to link me, as you can see, the reasons for this gap is due to many reasons, but it NEVER talks about a difference in wages for the same job. Since most of the arguments here on tumblr rely around the US, I remind you of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, making (rightfully so) illegal paying someone differently because of their sex.
So, why there is this gap? One of the reasons is difference in interests between men and women (this video explains it very well), women tend to expand their education in social studies while men tend to go towards engineering or computer science. These fields are very different, and because of that there is difference in the average wage between the jobs they provide. Then, of course, there are cases of women not getting a promotion or a job because they are women (the same can be said because of the race, since you brought it up), I never denied it.
The 75 cents “argument” is obtained by adding all the (let’s say yearly) wages of men and women and dividing that number by the total number of working men and women respectively. You’ll find that in AVERAGE a woman makes 75 cents to a man’s dollar, but it’s not strictly because of sexual discrimination. And, IMO, the number of cases of sexual discrimination compared to the number women that CHOOSE a career with a lower wage, is so low that it doesn’t affect much the overall statistics. Funnly enough, if you do the same thing between straight men and gay men you’ll find that a gay man makes 1.25$ to a straight man 1$ (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧.
In the end, I’ll say that YES, there are cultural problems about women in certain fields of work. But, at the same time, there are problems with men in other fields of work. That’s why I won’t call myself a feminist, but I much more like the ungendered term egalitarian. Since english is not my first language and I don’t have the time to do a grammar check, I’m pretty sure there WILL be grammar errors.
I might turn off anon just to see how many people have the guts to expose themselves for what they think. Or I might leave it on and expose them ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I guess this answers my previous question LOL
Anyway, I really like how feminists are open to discussion and criticism to defend their point. Really a human loving movement!
I wonder if I’ll ever get anons who aren’t hate or poorly hidden sarcasm
