  •  A lot of such people will say yes, (4+ / 0-)

    as men "have families to support."  (As if women didn't, whether single or partnered, or as if single women didn't need the earnings.)

      Folks who can't see this basic truth disgust my value system ....

      I am married to this exceptional lady who is as good in her area as there can be. How can i tell her that she deserves less.

      I have a 2 year beautiful daughter. How can i look into her lovely eyes and say that she will never earn as much as a boy of the same intelligence ...

      more than anything ... this is unAmerican. You teach young kids to pu their best effort and be rewarded for the same. How can you look into a kid's eyes and tell them that boys will get paid more than girls for the same level of recognition ...

      DISGUSTING !!!!!!!!!

      •  Saying what they do is a cover (0+ / 0-)

        for fundamentally valuing men and their contributions more than woman and their contributions.  Simply believing men are worth more.

        It may be subconscious.  It may be unexamined.  But that's what's going on.

        I believe it is the same thing with the massive disparities in earnings among ethnicities, as well.
