35. "Disingenuous" that word means something other than what you think it means.

 

No, women aren't "78% less productive". If they were, they'd be paid 22% as much as men.

What you meant to say is she's paid 22% less, which is largely bullshit.

Women work fewer hours, in lower paying occupations in shorter careers. Those three factors account for almost all of the pay gap.

And yes, I could provide links for all three things.

Here's a simple proof statement: self-employed women make less than self-employed men. Are we to believe that her boss is discriminating against her?

The pay gap will never change until men and women make the same life choices and men are awarded parental custody in equal numbers.

The rhetoric of equal pay day sounds appealing until you realize that the solution is for your husband to stay home with the baby while you take the 12 hour shift in the log truck.
