Do you believe in the complete equality of the sexes?

Congrats, you’re a feminist.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman, THIS IS FEMINISM. Learn before you sprout ignorance.

Yesterday, the House GOP passed a budget that:✄’s vital programs✄’s taxes for millionaires↑ taxes for middle-class families
Frankly, it stacks the deck against the middle class.

People who make up excuses for the wage gap are disgusting

  • Giving women less hours than men is not okay and not an excuse for the wage gap
  • Not giving women paid maternity leave is not an excuse
  • Expecting the woman to leave because of stereotypes is not an excuse for the wage gap.
  • Saying “oh but they would pick women if they were paid less!” while ignoring the problem at hand is not an excuse.
  • Trying to make us feel bad for the companies that would have to face “burdens” is not an excuse
  • THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THE WAGE GAP

Excuses? These are facts. Women CHOOSE work less hours. Women CHOOSE to work less paying jobs. Come back to reality.

Women have created the wage gap. It’s their own fault, why the fuck are you blaming men?

I’m not. I’m blaming the people who run our government for not doing anything about a very real problem. I find it disgusting that people actually think it’s okay to give women less money than men.

Women have CHOSEN to earn less money. It’s their CHOICE. If they want to make equal money to men then maybe they shouldn’t work shorter hours and maybe they should take more dangerous jobs. Are you saying we should just GIVE money to women to make up the difference because they CHOSE to earn less? 

Women do not choose to earn less money, they are forced to. Maybe they should be given more hours and corporations should stop making excuses for not doing so. And if there wasn’t a stereotype of women being “weak”, they would be GIVEN more dangerous jobs.  And we should give money to women to make up the difference because they are doing THE SAME AMOUNT OF WORK.

Um, no they don’t. They are GIVEN less hours, they are FORCED to work less paying jobs.  Stop living off of excuses

Women have to work into APRIL to make the same amount of money men made last year. This is disgusting and needs to stop.  

If you don’t think the wage gap is real, you need to learn a bit about what the wage gap means. Thank God Obama is going to stop this.

FSU is under investigation for not handling the Jameis Winston case

This is amazing.  Never have I been so disgusted by how a college dismissed someone’s rape until it was too late and the victim had to back down.  Tallahasee is disgusting for not even investigating the rape and telling the victim to go away.  This HAS to stop. 

I will not support FSU until this is handled and schools learn that football players should never be given special treatment.
