I've had the weird-feeling experience of being born intersex, having a doctor choose a sex for me, being raised as if that was my gender (female) including hormones starting at age 9, and living much of my adulthood perceived as male or female depending on how much money I had to convincingly present as my inner gender, male. Because of that experience, I think I'm in a pretty unique place to say that this is IMPORTANT. Women are *not* treated equally. They are *not* respected or promoted or believed or acknowledged equally. Work on that will be decades if not centuries in the making. But it's about damn time we call on our representatives, hopefully the most educated and informed of us, to acknowledge women as basically equal to men. This *needs* to be law so at least women who are not treated equally by the average folks they meet have recourse to make things right. ERA! NOW!

Women always fight for power and men hand it to them throughout the generations. And when women attain power, what do they ask for? More power. It's also interesting to note that women fighting for "equality" (as if they don't already have it), are only fighting for powerful jobs. Namely government, police, lawyers, doctors, etc.. not many women fight for equal rights rough necking in the oil fields. The truth is these same women are spoiled brats. And as Christ says - the kingdom is like leaven that a woman planted. And a little leaven leavens the whole loaf. But these same women who have everything handed to them are blaming men. If you ask me, this entire women equality experiment is an abysmal failure. But these same women are blaming Donald Trump and "the patriarchy"for their failures; when in truth it was the patriarchy that handed them equality on a silver platter

The commonly cited wage gap is simply the average earnings of men and women working full time. It does not account for different job positions, or hours worked. It has nothing to do with discrimination. Any real wage gap is much like 90-98¢/dollar if there at all, depending on location and industry. Oddly enough in certain industries the fake wage gap is reversed where women make on average more than men. In reality it’s just that those women are more successful than the men as they attract more clients to their businesses and hence more money.

Democrats, calling themselves the party of equality 🤣🤣 they've fought civil equality at every turn since the beginning of time (so to speak). They're the ones who owned slaves and fought Republicans tooth and nail when they tried to abolish slavery, then killed Lincoln when he was successfull at it. Only 33% of them voted for women's right to vote vs Republicans 100%. Then they take credit for the civil rights act of the 60s, when all they did was stop filibustering it so it could pass! Lying fucks.

How did I know so much from two sick sentences from the mouth of Plano Police Officer Michael Bogacki badge number 1598 and unit number 5329610? Because I have been repeated prey to Dallas county and Collin county police. Now, having said that, I know living with an American man for over three decades that the whites of America are the biggest prey in number to the policing in America. It just got a whole lot nastier in Princeton, Texas. Where I pushed the all confederate all white town of 2000 to write one of their own a ticket for his son terrorizing the whole town. Did it help me that the District Clerk of Colon for Collin County Courthouse working at JCP of Fairview told me that her son punched Brandon Dickerson's eyes out? No. It did not help at all. Ultimately I got over drugged through detective first Colon County elected judge next Paul Raleeh who Collin County Commissioners Court paid an undisclosed amount of our taxes on to one of their own, Barbara Ingram and against one of their own Paul Raleeh with nothing happening to Paul Raleeh.  Star local media published that. But, there was more.  There were a whole lot of banging on my door for long duration taking my door down abuse by Princeton, Texas's police. And when I would open the door there were always four to five of them laughing. After they had arrested me for flipping a neighbor who Life Path's social worker Missy Day had seen by my bedroom window telling her F YOU.  And they coming to my face running on tracks taking my pictures.  They took my picture flipping them off. Yap.  On my walk. I was so angry about all the abuse that when I opened the door with the blonde one laughing I spat on his face. The charge came back "Aggravated Assault of a Public Servant."  That is how I know reading this that this poor man did not assault Michael Bogacki, Plano Police Officer, badge number 1598, Unit number 5329610. I have already left a message to Chris Carver about all the abuse by Vietnam Vet first and cop next of Dallas and then Marc Dickerson the Princeton. So, smelling Michael Bogacki became easier after two harassing questions in front of Walmart and please read how he victimized this poor soul through this finding on the internet; I have already asked all of you to look at his facebook posts.  I have left a message with Chris Carver to send me more complaint forms for the postings of when shooting criminals it solves crimes by Michael Bogacki.  I also have asked Shanda with none-emergency Plano Police to send me two complaint forms.  I don't have a printer. Please read about other victims of Michael Bogacki:  https://cases.justia.com/texas/fifth-court-of-appeals/2014-05-13-01620-cr.pdf?ts=1417516352

8:39 - Abortion is another big one. If they have equality, they can't abort a child or for that matter have a child without the father's consent since they are equal. My favourite part about abortion and child support is that both are horribly biased towards women. Men have no say after conception. If they didn't want a child, they should have used protection despite the fact that no form of protection is 100% but women aren't held to this standard. Strangely enough, it's a woman's body and a woman's choice but the man's responsibility, kind of like the draft. Equality except some animals are more equal than others. Google it if you haven't read Animal Farm.

I will just say the reason why men can’t choose abortion or no abortion for women is because y’all aren’t the ones who have to carry the baby in your body. It’s hugely harmful to a body to raise a child and takes so much effort and care.

1:24 - Spoiler: Men only got the right to vote 4 years earlier after agreeing to serve in the military in exchange for such a huge right. Women got handed it a few years later because they whined a lot. They still aren't required to serve, 100 years later. It's strange how no one seems upset about that inequality.

Having only just got round to seeing this, and discovering that Virginia has now passed it. As I understand it, one of the US houses only has to pass the bill already approved by the other to extend the official deadline to end of January 2020 and that would right the amendment into law? While the US president might have to still officially sign it, i quite frankly can't see how he could oppose it.

@Zuma Zuma thanks for the thoughtful response. when they measure for football, for example, do they normalize it based on the profits they generate? For sports and modeling it seems like it would be hard to compare men and women. You would need to de-embed the fact that the consumers have a large influence on that persons income and often the consumers have their preference towards one.

several ways. You could, if you have the data, consider the difference in average salary for male/female employees in the same branch of the same industry with the same starting year/position level. That is a wage gap, which shows whether women face discrimination in this partciular branch and get promoted less, or paid less, etc. But it doesn't account for the differences in the bucket themselves. Which is why you normally also want to look at the income gap: compare the average income for men and women of similar age in similar geographical region. That would take into account whether women are more often working part-time or generally work in lower-paid fields (spoiler: they do). While wage gap can vary massively from industry to industry (from football with a huge advantage for men to modelling with a huge advantage for women), and depending on the seniority (the higher - the bigger the difference), income gap is on average 20%. One of the biggest causes for both wage gap and income gap is child birth, especially in the US (but also in progressive countries), where the mother often needs to put her career on hold and loses out on promotion/raise opportunities, unlike the father.
