More on Men/Women and the pay gap…
September 9, 2010
So the WSJ had some redonkulous article I'm not even going to link to about "young women earn more than men". Of course that wasn't similarly qualified men. Slate kicked some ass with this piece in response, citing how women with the same major, same grades, and same experience earn 5% less than their equally qualified male counterparts. That gap grows over time, and substantially after having children.
Of course the comments are a bunch of men complaining about the disparity in more women getting college degrees. Asking what this means for them, why feminists aren't concerned with the low numbers of men graduating from college. Then they go on to tell women that the pay gap is their fault, that by choosing to take time off for kids or by choosing to not act aggressively and get labelled a bitch they are responsible for the lower wages. I guess when men don't go to college, it's society's fault. But when women stay home to raise kids or don't ask for a raise it's a personal decision. Just wanted to clear that up for ya'll.
