    Re: The Gender Pay Gap: convince me

    If there were certainly a gender pay gap, as long as men are last off the sinking boat, then I consider it a tax for that purpose.

    Zhav, I was just about to start writing a reply, when I noticed your new thread. Given that you're probably about to get banned, again, I'm going to wait to see if there is any reason to write and post. Suffice to say, for now, that you've offered fallacy after fallacy, without any substantive argument. All rhetoric and no meat makes a crappy argument.

    Can you make that a bit clearer? :scratching head:

    Re: The Gender Pay Gap: convince me

    @ even.
    Suppose men are payed $5 an hour more than woman at any given job with all things being equal.

    Say for example they are both waiters on a cruise ship. The man makes $10 an hour and the woman makes $5.
    She complains that she is not being payed equally.

    So here I play the part of the male waiter.
    and I would respond to this as follows.

    Yes, you are equally qualified in every way with regards to our jobs, but in the case that the ship does sink. You (the woman) will be given preference by rescuers, you will be given preference for seats on the life boats. The call will go out to all the ship "woman and children first". As such, the $5 difference in pay that you see, is the price .. a Tax if you will, for that preference and unequal treatment in life and death situations.

    As long as that preference in life and death situations exists, the complaints for pay inequality falls on deaf ears.

    Okay, that seems a fair analogy.
