Thanks to John Gisogod for this one:
The reasons why is that, statistically speaking, women earn less than men. There is nothing sinister about this, for the figures simply demonstrate the consequences of women's biology and the choices that they make.
Men, on average, earn more than women during the course of their lifetimes, but this is no
terrible injustice done to women. They pay more in taxes than do women. In other words, the average man puts more into the pot than does an average women. Your average man is therefore supporting women!
When it comes to benefits, such as health, pensions and income support, a whopping 70% of the budget is actually spent on women's needs; it is absolutely clear that the support given by men to women is phenomenal, and it shows just how much men truly hand over to women via the government coffers. Further, men also hand money over directly to women when they stay at home to look after the kids. Why should feminists try to make women go out and earn the same as their partners?
Men put a lot more into the pot, and they take a lot less out of it. And it is still the case that while men die seven years earlier than women, they are still expected to work for five more years before receiving their pension. But do notice that, working for five years longer and receiving seven years less of pension, adds up to a massive twelve years of financial injustice. A truly blatant, ongoing act of sex discrimination. An enormous act of discrimination.
However, statistically speaking, compared to men, women just don’t value winning the marathon that much. Therefore, they get paid less. And quite right too, because they work fewer hours and they achieve less. It is also pointless for women to keep moaning about the fact that employers are reluctant to give them special consideration when they have children, and to demand exactly the same pay when they don't actually put in the same number of hours. Why should anybody who works full time (man or woman) have to subsidise other women in the workplace, just because they choose to have children?
Feminists tell us that women who have children should not be disadvantaged in the employment sphere. But, as with everything else, feminists think that the world should cater exclusively for their own selfish needs. They believe that women who have children should not in any way have to curtail their employment prospects or their incomes.
Thus, despite the fact that such women will take leave from work (for years, perhaps) and that they will not be able to put in the same number of hours that their colleagues do, feminists argue that they should be paid the same and be given the same status!
