    This is from Anti-Feminazi facebook page.

    Looks like we need a reminder about the wage gap myth.

    1. Secretaries and administrative assistants
    2. Registered nurses
    3. Elementary and middle school teachers

    Top Five Jobs Men Take:
    1. Construction
    2. Engineering
    3. Law Enforcement
    4. Firemen
    5. Electricians

    As you can see, the jobs men take more often have a high risk of death and serious mental stress. The jobs that women take more often have a low risk of death and have instead minors risks such as body aches and disease. From the top five jobs by gender, you can see women tend to take safer jobs while men tend to take more dangerous jobs. The danger of those jobs must be taken into account and the people working in those dangerous jobs must be compensated.
    The "gap" you hear about is an average of the entire nation. It does not represent a man and a woman in the same job field. It represents every single man and every single women in the USA. That is why it is called average. As you can see, women tend to take lower paying jobs while men tend to take higher paying jobs.

    Nothing really

    Re: Gender wage gap myth busted.

    It has been busted a 100001 times. no matter how many times you spread facts, these people will close their eyes and scream misogyny.
    Sad, but one day our kids will have to visit museums to see what a lady looks like.

    Re: Gender wage gap myth busted.

    Yep, people have no clue what went into making the fake stat, they just blindly repeat it whenever possible. Same with the 1 in 4 bullshit. It's a blind faith doctrine, you either agree with it or you're shunned. They don't even know the original source of the fake stat, but it keeps spreading. Even if there were so much affirmative action that women started statistically making more money as a group, they'd still be whining about misogyny. It's the cultural marxism thing - the system is patriarchal so every single component of that reality must be patriarchal no matter what. There's no possible situation where feminists would say "ok we've achieved equality" because they can always complain about how women have been "oppressed" since the dawn of time. That's why I think it's pointless arguing with them - you just give them more fuel to bitch and turn others against you. Best to state your case and be done with it or mock them. Roll your eyes when they mention the stat or disengage and visually show that you do not give a shit about feminism. Like, "seriously this again? boooooring".

    the truth?? you cant handle the truth....!!!!!!!!!

    then again.. if these "people" can explain away the fact that a man is 20 times more likely to get killed on the job.... I might consider their position.. (if they got one....)

    besides... I've always maintained that if there is a "gap"... most of that "discrepancy" is "danger pay".. (I have held a few factory jobs, and I have seen my share of accidents happening to others... just amazes me I got such a clean safety record)

    Re: Gender wage gap myth busted.

    How many men in the MGTOW community and those who are not, but share the same sentiments, repeatedly over the years told women why we were upset? Why we are going our own way? Why we are pissed off at them? Only to be told by women, time and time and time and time and time again... "You just hate women!", "Who hurt you?", "What are you gay?", "The PATRIARCHY!?", "Don't you have a mom or sister?", "Your just a misogynist who hates women!", "why are you putting the blame on women? What about the men!".

    It is at this point, trying to get a woman to understand or accept our point of view is asking a hungry shark to please not eat me today, I enjoy living. They will not listen, they will not hear.

    So instead, we should just adapt. Write feminists books, filling their ears with what they want to hear, and sell it to them for a premium. They do not want the truth, they want to have their ego's coddled and their vanity spread through out, so why not bank on it? I have yet to do such a thing, but since women are so eager to eat their own crap, i'm surprised men haven't written such fictions books to sell. My only guess why is that we cannot sit down and write a insane book logically.

    Pretty much. Yes, technically there IS a gap, but their methodology, if you can even call it that, is so shitty that common sense immediately refutes it. They just look at all men as a group, and all women as a group, (common trait of SJWs, people are defined by their group status) then completely ignore the types of jobs each group tends to take.

    With the 1 in 4 myth, again they take pride in their shitty methodology. Yes, technically 1 in 4 are sexually assaulted if you make the definition so broad that "got your ass grabbed at a party" counts as assault. They don't care at all about being logical, once they shit out a number that advances their agenda and promotes their narrative, it's done.

    That's why if you bring up the types of jobs, it will never convince them. Because then you're trying to look beyond group identity and that's a big no-no.

    The logic of their argument is like saying, "every dog is bigger than every cat because the biggest dogs are bigger than the smallest cats", conveniently ignoring chihuahuas, jack russels, wiener dogs, etc.

    Re: Gender wage gap myth busted.

    all things considered... I would like to see how someone like Gloria Steinem or the late Andrea Dworkin would fare at an occupation where just being "on the job" is a near-constant hazard... (especially given the last couple factory jobs I've held...)
    anyway... you're right... such ideology is anything but "empirical"... (and wildly skewed to say the least...)
