Now you’re talking about a different issue. Employers can do whatever they please within the law, if they want to offer a man a higher paying job then that’s their choice, as the employer. I’m sure any reasonable woman would simply say “Okay, wasn’t successful that time, I’ll try again somewhere else. Maybe the employer was sexist but you know what, sexist people exist. Racist people exist. Homophobic people exist. And they always will. But maybe he wasn’t sexist, maybe he just preferred the man’s personality and found him better suited to that particular working environment”. Not everything has to be about sexism.

“Due to gender”: but you don’t know that it’s due to gender. I think most people can agree that personality prevails over gender. A dickhead is a dickhead regardless of gender. A nice person is a nice person regardless of gender. Qualifications aren’t everything when it comes to getting a job, personality does matter. If a man and a woman apply to the same job with the same qualifications and the man gets the job and the woman is offered a lower-paying job, why does that have to be down to sexism? It’s way more likely that it was just because the employer preferred his personality and found it better suited to that job. The woman has every right to refuse the lower-paying job and try elsewhere. When it comes to women being paid less for the exact same job with the same hours, I’m sorry but it is illegal. It’s like paying a white person more than a black person, not-fucking-allowed. Maybe it does happen in some places, just like every bad thing in the world occurs in some places. We’re never going to stop a few ignorant people existing. And even then I really doubt it would be down to sexism, unless the employer REALLY hates women. More likely that the employer simply prefers the man. Which, of course, doesn’t mean they should pay him more. But like I said, shitty people exist and shitty things happen.
I’ve read it all, dude. It’s not that I’m uneducated because I used to believe wholeheartedly in the wage gap before I actually looked for myself.


  I found this on Facebook. I don’t know who wrote it. If I find out, I will add the name.

To those who voted for DT because they had understandable reasons:
Remember when the President said he wasn’t going to take a salary? He just accepted his second paycheck.
Remember when he said Mexico was going to pay for the wall? He has asked Congress to appropriate the $25 billion of taxpayer money to cover costs.
Remember when he said he wasn’t going to go on vacation or play golf? 5 of the last 7 weekends he went on vacation and played golf, costing taxpayers $11.1 million.
Remember when he said he was going to use American steel to build these dangerous pipelines? Russian steel arrived last week for the Keystone Pipeline XL.
Remember when he said he wasn’t going to cut social security and Medicare? The Republican bill does just this.
Remember when he said that nobody on his campaign had any communications with the Russian government? 7 of his people have now admitted they spoke and/or met with Russian officials, after they lied and got caught.
Remember when he said he was going to divest from his businesses? Changed his mind.
Remember when he said he was going to release his tax returns? Changed his mind.
Remember when he said he was going to drain the swamp of Washington insiders? His cabinet is filled with lobbyists, oil and Wall Street executives.
Remember when he said would defeat ISIS in 30 days? He doesn’t have a plan.
Remember when he said that the Obamacare replacement would cover more people at lower cost? The AHCA that the GOP and 45 are now pushing; they now admit will cover fewer people at a higher cost.
If you voted for him, please hold him accountable to what he promised you - for all of our sakes.

something that always struck me as odd about the prequels is how palpatine was able to forge a relationship with anakin in the first place.

this is definitely my biggest problem with the jedi, in relation to anakin: they let palpatine, a middle aged man, get anakin, a child, alone. the fact that palpatine’s even insistent on it at all should be ringing alarm bells. there should be Stranger Danger warnings going off, people! you’re dropping the ball, men!

and i understand that, according to the comics, palpatine threw his political weight around, saying that the senate has total control over the jedi. that you can’t deny the chancellor. but that’s incorrect - the republic is corrupt, but it’s not a dictatorship yet. as anakin’s legal guardians, the council has the full right to refuse palpatine access to anakin - it doesn’t matter who’s knocking at your door, you’re supposed to protect your charge. 

but the jedi handed him over. the second palpatine pressed, they folded; and no one tried to curb anakin’s interaction with palpatine, even though it should be clear that an old man wanting to talk with a minor day after day after day is suspicious. especially since the jedi were suspicious of palpatine anyway

I like beginnings because they’re so full of promise. The first page of a book, the first day of a job, the first time you buy yourself flowers, the first date with a new man, the first touch, the first kiss, the first kick of a good liquor, the first moment you hold your own baby. I like beginnings because I know there’s always more to come.

cold 

cant decide on a bg so just. heres the transparent version so you can slap it on whatever. preferably smthing warm bc its hecking cold over here jfc 

there’s this one part in Total Recall that has always baffled me. spoilers, i guess, for a movie that came out in 2012. 

so when kate beckinsale reveals that she’s been pretending to be colin’s wife, in response to his disbelief she’s like, why would you ever think someone like me would be with someone like you? but like yo

exhibit A, B, and C

and she’s going on about his shitty apartment (that has a balcony w/ a view, proving that future dystopia is still better than current day manhattan), and how basically tapping some prime c farrell ass is the worst assignment she’s ever gotten as a secret gov agent??
