While most statistics that are thrown around in regards to the gender wage gap don’t consider occupation, industry, and education, there is still a large percentage of the wage gap that goes unexplained once this is considered. By and large, women are paid less on the sole fact that they are women.And for the men who complain, “BUT TEH MENZ HAEV TO PAY FOR DINNERZ” (no, actually, you don’t), let’s pretend that it was law that all men had to pay for their dates.The unexplained wage gap that has a disparity of 10 cents per dollar is equal to $4,465 per year, or $156,275 over the course of a 35-year career.Let me put that in other terms for you. With that extra money from the wage gap you can do the following:-Pay for 700 steak dinners ($35/each)-Pay for 1,000 IMAX theatre ticket ($16/each)-Pay for 85 tickets to a broadway show ($85/each)-Fly 3 times from NYC to Paris and spend a week each time at a 4-star hotel ($6,000/trip)-Buy a 14K White gold diamond ring ($7,500)And still have $48,000 to spend on whatever else you want.So next time you complain about having to pay for a woman’s dinner (that you’re not obligated to pay) when the Wage Gap is discussed, sit yo ass down.

Most mass murderers do not go from zero to 60. Rodger made escalating assaults on women (splashing coffee on them, attempting to shove them off a ledge) before his killing spree. Both Cho and Justin-Jinich’s murderer harassed women before they killed anyone. When such acts go unnoticed and unpunished — because we expect men to harass women, and it’s not outrageous or even noteworthy when they do — they can become stepping-stones to more conspicuous and less socially acceptable acts of violence.

Interesting to note that while a history of animal cruelty is widely accepted to be a link with becoming a serial killer, the link between cruelty towards women and killing women is still up for debate. If a guy abuses a cat and then shoots women we say "we should have seen it coming that guy was nuts", but if abuses women and then shoots women we say "we had no way of seeing it coming that guy was a perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human

As long as it isn’t a saftey hazard, I don’t see why we can’t have them. And yeah, if the tattoo is inappropriate or if your plugs have something inappropriate on them, then I can see why they would want them covered up it taken out. But if you have blue hair and the store or whatever wont hire you because of that, fuck them. I like your blue hair, I’ll hire you.
