Insane SJW examples of bullshit "microaggressions"

Is this an article debunking the GPG because the fucking thing goes on to disprove the theory.

They have 10443 firms, 78% were paying men (as an average) higher than women, 14% were paying women higher than men.

OK, so are the 14% paying women higher being sexist towards men or is it because that particular industry or occupation is dominated by women in specialised roles which required higher pay.

View attachment 4901

They then focus on air travel which has one of the highest male to female disparity and a few slides later provide the context for that, can you guess what it is?

That's correct! It's because most of their pilots are male and most of their air stewards are female... and whodathunkit, pilots get paid more than people serving you tea and crisps from a trolley. SEXISM!!!

Each and every sector, there are simple explanations to the so called gaps, whether those be social reasons like men's willingness to work longer hours, do more dangerous work, have specialties, etc ... some of them are just historical in that there are a lot of specialists like doctors who have been around for a long time and now it's balancing out at the junior doctor end because there are more women in medicine.

But the BBC continues to present this theory like it has any legitimacy, are they trolling at this point?
Yep, it's fucking INSANE that this is still being treated as legitimate. They have multiple articles on this drivel every other week. Here is another one from 3 days ago...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47785669

Look at some of these gems...

"Better pay for part-time work and care jobs are needed, as well as more flexible jobs, she says."

I'd like to see better pay for jobs like nursing, but how the fuck is this gender pay gap? Women CHOOSE to become nurses knowing what the salary involves, and if a man becomes a nurse then this relates to him too. Binmen get shit money too, but this is not about sexism. Notice how, 10 years ago this shit was always spoken of as "women paid less for the same job" and now they've realised that's untenable, so they're moving the entire argument.

This line is hilarious...

"But flexibility doesn't always mean autonomy over pay and time: the gender pay gap persists even for women in self-employment"

:lol: So, even though there is no employer who can possibly be blamed, self employed men making more money than self employed women is also sexism. :lol:

Here is ANOTHER article from only 3 days ago...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47822291

It is now openly admitted that in most jobs there is no gap when women and men start out, but after women have kids it starts to grow. No shit. Millions of women CHOOSE to not go back to work for several years. It's fucking madness, utter madness that this is not laughed at.

Another article from 4 days ago that includes Kwikfit's data and utterly misses the glaring point it proves.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47801794

Kwikfit are named as one of the worst "offenders". But, last year they had a "negative pay gap" in which women earned 15.2% more, and this year it is a %14 gap to men. Does that alone not set alarm bells ringing to these fucking idiots? The few women working for them last year were in managerial roles, dealing with numbers etc, and many of them moved on to other jobs, meaning the few women left in a male dominated job were receptionists etc earning less than the mechanics and the other managers. So basically a few high level women made a 15% pay gay to the many men working, those women leave and suddenly Kwikfit is an example of sexism.

This shit is so fucking stupid and obviously bollocks it drives me mad.

Average income of all women compared to that of all men: women earn less. Why? Sexism.
Men 19 times more likely to die at work than women. Why? The choices men make, the more dangerous jobs they take, the fields they're in.....

But let's not talk about gender disparities in workplace deaths, serious injuries, life-threatening situations, remote location work requiring days, weeks or months away from families, work that causes physical breakdown and lifelong chronic pain, work in brutal outdoor conditions....... let's not talk about any of that...... ever. :bart

Have you ever heard one of these articles so much as mention the gender disparity of workplace fatalities? How many women are getting trapped in burning buildings, falling off deep-sea fishing trawlers, getting squashed by trees while logging, getting mangled by heavy industrial machinery, etc etc etc? Never seem to hear any calls to even up those figures..... not even once. :sad

I mean, I know a bunch of tradesmen in their 50s and 60s whose knees, backs or shoulders are completely shot from decades of physical work on jobsites. That shit is standard.

I don't think I know a single woman who carries a chronic injury from work. Not even one.

A hospital has been forced to apologise to a transgender woman who visited a ward dressed as Mrs Claus at Christmas after the nurse mistook her for a man and exclaimed 'erggh' when corrected.

Chantelle Saunders, who is transitioning from male to female, said she was left 'very, very upset' by the way she was treated by staff at Royal Devon and Exeter hospital.

The 34-year-old claims a nurse replied 'Er...it's a man' when she wished her 'Happy Christmas' while wearing an Ann Summers Mrs Claus outfit.



Lol was here to post that to. Fuck me is he serious Haha. Western world going mad.

Guys take a look at this I posted. What a total fucking bitch. In an expensive company car and having a pop at hard working men. Silly fuck had had to put her Twitter on lock down such was the shit she got back from men and women.

These people are insane and should be treated like they are. As if she would get out of that nice warm posh car and grab a shovel and do Manuel labour....yet feels like she is some feminist heroine because she called out some poor working guy whi had no idea what the feck she was banging on about.

In an interview for the April issue of Vogue Arabia, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said, “To me, the hijab means power, liberation, beauty and resistance.”

Yes.

In related news, the sky is green and the grass is blue.

The language being used as well... from the Kwikfit story.

"Gender pay gap reporting is not optional. It is a legal requirement and there's simply no excuse for employers failing to comply with the regulations this year.

"We will be taking enforcement action against all organisations that have not filed by the deadline requiring them to report immediately.

"Employers that don't report on time not only risk enforcement action and potential financial penalties; they are letting down the women who work for them. They should be prepared for an unhappy workforce and potential reputational damage."


We're living in Clown World at this point, there were 3 reporters writing that report in the last link you posted. All 3 of them can't be so fucking stupid as to not see the glaring problem with their example. What is the suggestion here, that they should raise the average wage of trolley dollies working at EasyJet until it is 50/50 in line with the total sum of pilot salaries?

But these offenders better act now or face the consequences!

It's like they can't accept the biological reality of pregnancy and child-rearing so we should pay all the women more for unskilled, part-time work to balance out all the women who leave the workplace to bring up kids. Total and utter self-serving bullshit, it has nothing to do with equality and everything to do with women providing themselves with privileges.

Love the way the article turns 'Er' into 'erggh' because it sounds worse.

Supposedly, Polygon is a video game press company that is filled to the brim with SJW's. Their gaming is fucking awful.
As someone who doesn't really play games, I don't really get it. They both looked like those typical shoot em up games that so many people love. I realise the first one was supposed to be shit, hence they put the Curb Your Enthusiasm music over it, but it looked like any other first person shooter to me. Graphics didn't jump out as bad, lots of action, blood etc. What makes it shit out of interest?

Even when I played games I hated things like Doom and never got the fascination with them, but I liked the more measured ones I've seen like Fallout 4 and Red Dead Redemption.

EDIT: I've completely misunderstood the post. :lol: I thought Polygon was the company who made the game, but reading the YT comments I see it's the company that writes about games and a member of their staff was shit at playing it. :lol:
