Does anybody really care...
At least, that's my understanding. I could be wrong, and probably am.
Well, you're right while no one is reading your post. Otherwise, it's wrong. Sorry.
When will people wake up and stop eating up this stuff?
When someone (us) fights back. When we say we're going to "buy" less of Apple, Facebook, IBM, and Microsoft, because their values don't align with ours.
I haven't made the same as a female since I was bagging groceries as a kid. After that, adult's skill sets widely diverge over time. Hell, there isn't a MAN with the identical qualifications that I have. Everybody's different...
Further, let's multiply that by the fact that I had to fight, threaten and give ultimatums to get the vast majority of raises I have gotten over the decades. This is something I don't see most of the women I associate with being able to readily do, and for that (and them) I am thankful.
Today's triumphant news is about a new Tinder app that lets you 'hook up' with multiple people. I know it's very "get off my lawn" but where we had an outward-looking, achievement-oriented society 50 years ago, today I see nothing but an enervated country suffused with ennui and a narcissistic obsession with carnality that leaves us paralyzed like a heroin addict on a buzz.
Wow, I really enjoyed your comment, so I "liked" it, Tweeted it to all my "friends", and will post it on Facebook too!! (...After I'm done playing Pokemon Go for an hour or two.)
Sure, they might make less money, but in the 1980s a cell phone cost thousands and barely worked...
Sorry to nitpick off topic, but I'm obligated to prevent falsehoods from gaining traction. Cell phones then worked much better than cell phones do today. Most people don't know this (they assume!) because a) they weren't alive to own one at the time, or b) since cellular phones and air time were costly, most folks couldn't afford them.
