I'm not saying there is no Gender Pay Gap. There definitely is. But, it's because of merit, not the gender. Women are forced to take sabbaticals due to child birth, more prone to judgements based on appearance and a number of other factors that leads to lower confidence levels into their 30s and 40s. This affects their work, promotions and other work related entities. This is just the truth. I have a Minor in Pschology and Human Behaviour. This is what I even wrote a paper on.

1- get your dick out of your client and learn how to capitalize words properly. 2- I don't think anyone is arguing with the fact that in certain fields men and women may be in more or less demand given the requirements and demand (sex work, physical labor, etc.) You can cherry pick industries all you like; the gap is looking at people who start on equal playing fields and then separate due to things you astutely called out- like women being judged on appearance and the fact women physically have to birth children and you don't.

@Help Wanting to work at a company that pays people equally for equal work makes someone a feminazi? 🙄 Judging by your profile name, you're a complete lost cause, so I won't waste any more breath on you, but maybe some day you'll open your eyes and see that women just want the same opportunities that you get without ever realizing it.

@A1 Way to go, judging me by my Profile name. All Men and Women start off with equal pay at the same position at every one of these firms. So, if a Man makes more after 10 years, it's usually because he worked for it. There are multiple studies to prove that Gender pay gap is not because of Gender. So, please stop playing the Woman card all the bloody time.

Maybe when women get parity in pay, then maybe that'll extend to paying on dates. Your argument sounds really petty. And also sounds like you're going on a bunch of dates and can't finish.

Inclusion question. I am not sure what gender pronouns my barber prefers. This person appears to be a male (full beard, deep voice, etc.). I’ve noticed that the Google reviews reference this person as a female and when I called the shop to ask for my barber - the person who picked up also used a female pronoun. Barber has never corrected me when I refer to them as a man… I want to be inclusive and respect their identity. How can do this respectfully?
