The Real ‘War on Women’


Pages: 1 2

When you compare women and men in the same occupations with the same skills, education, hours of work, and many other factors that go into determining pay, the differences in incomes shrink to the vanishing point — and, in some cases, the women earn more than comparable men.

But why let mere facts spoil the emotional rhetoric or the political ploys to drum up hysteria and collect votes?

The farcical nature of these ploys came out after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi declared that Congress needed to pass the Fair Pay Act, because women average 23 percent lower incomes than men.

A reporter from The Daily Caller then pointed out that the women on Nancy Pelosi’s own staff average 27 percent lower incomes than the men on her staff. Does that show that Pelosi herself is guilty of discrimination against women? Or does it show that such simple-minded statistics are grossly misleading?

The so-called Fair Pay Act has nothing to do with fairness and everything to do with election-year politics. No one in his right mind expects that bill to become law. It will be lucky to pass the Senate, and has no chance whatever of getting passed in the House of Representatives.

The whole point of this political exercise is to get Republicans on record voting against “fairness” for women, as part of the Democrats’ campaign strategy to claim that there is a “war on women.”

If you are looking for a real war on women, you might look at the practice of aborting girl babies after an ultrasound picture shows that they are girls. These abortions are the most basic kind of discrimination, and their consequences have already been demonstrated in countries like China and India, where sexually discriminatory abortions and female infanticide have produced an imbalance in the number of adult males and females.

A bill to outlaw sexually and racially discriminatory abortions has been opposed and defeated by House Democrats.

    Maybe already-born-and-grown up women like the idea of aborting female infants, because if you have a world where there's more men than women, the women can afford to be more choosy about whom they marry, and can pick the most qualified men. Much like when you're a business owner and are seeking good workers to hire, if unemployment is high you can afford to be more choosy about whom you hire.

      Huh?

      Ever wonder why your mother was not more choosy – whatever sex you are?

    • Sound&Fury

      As it happens in China, more infant girls are aborted because of their one-child policy. As a result, there is now of shortage of young women for Chinese men seeking marriage.

      So, Alex, your reasoning comes up short. Better not let your boss know that, or he's likely to abort you.

    Fairness for women can never happen because men cannot legislate them each a penis.

      What planet have you been living on? In the 60s I worked full time while my husband worked part time and got a college and professional degree. We served four years in the military and had two children. I also went to university while my children were in school and started working full time the day the first one went off to college. My daughter, when first married was going to college and holding down three part-time jobs also. Both my mother and her two sisters worked full time all their adult lives. There hasn't been an full-time stay-at-home mom in my family since my grandmother who was born in 1888.

    War on women? I don't know, can't we just put them back where they belong and call it a day? Why does everything anybody ever does, have to be called a war? Ever think about that? Or, in this case, anything nobody is doing very much at all about. Nope, I don't think we should shoot em. At least, not all of em. However, I do think if they want to be in charge, I want to be paid to sit at home, I want doors opened for me and I never pick up the check. Nor will I be expected to defend anything, catch mice, fix the roof, change tires, grill steaks, plant, prune or do any lawn care. In short, I will be a lazy b**ch playing cards with my b**ch friends and talking s**t about my no-good mate. So there, now go out and vote, get killed in combat, work hard so you can feed, clothe and house me until I get sick of you and dump your sorry butt. Then, keep paying me to live in the house you bought. I'll take that arrangement thank you very much and you can keep your wars.

    My post is a reply to wctaqiyya and I should have put it under his post.

      Honey, this post isn't about planets, it's about the so-called, 'war on women'. Do you have a constructive answer to my questions or a coherent opinion about the 'war'? If so, please contribute. If not, your personal details are not pertinent. As you may have learned in the army, your broken fingernail doesn't matter. And, since you brought it up, this planet doesn't revolve around you and your pretty little life. Nor does the issue raised by the author of this post. Rather, it is a societal issue. Which means it involves many people. Many is lots more than one. It's great that you work, as I indicated above, all women should work since being in charge means paying the bills. Tell all of your friends. But, is it too much to ask why a bunch of whining women is called a war? Thanks in advance for your scintillating answer.
