Can you describe the color black without using the word black?

Black

[noun]

1. Night. Obsidian slides on the islands of Hawaii. My grandfather’s cancer spots and the x-ray of his deflated lungs. His coffin two months later. Ebony keys under hands that are too dark to be called anything but burnt charcoal crystals, and Beethoven playing softly three floors down in my uncle’s apartment building — O Freunde, niche diese toen, sodern lasst uns angenehmere anstimmen und freundenvollere. 

2. You. Your heart. Your mouth when you said
you didn’t love me anymore.

Look, either you are going to believe me, because you have a shred of common sense, or you are going to not believe anything I say because you have already decided I’m wrong. 

But here we go anyway.

As this article discusses, the way they come to these conclusions is factually inaccurate. When actually compared side by side, one woman to one man, doing the same job with the same experience and at the same company…the pay gap becomes so small that is almost vanishes. 

Of course the studies that liberals use do not look at people individually. They average out across an entire industry and usually refuse to take into account experience, business size, benefits, or time taken off by an individual.

In the article I linked there are several discussions of why this is a dishonest and inaccurate way to calculate a “wage gap” between men and women. Maybe women take the easier, less stressful jobs in an industry. Maybe on average women take off more sick days, jobs with more flexible hours, or *gasp* maternity leave. Actually we know that to be the case on average. 

These things create a false “wage gap” that makes it look like employers are paying women less for some sexist reason, but that just isn’t so.

The wage gap as described by feminists is not real. Yes it exists, but NOT because of sexism and bias towards women, more accurately as a bias FROM women. Women on average want comfy and safe jobs. Those types of jobs usually pay less than dangerous jobs so that is why women on average are payed less. A man and a woman in the same field with the same education and the same years worked would earn the same amount per hour. Super simple stuff.

Not necessarily. Women are actually better in emotional smarts. They’re also particularly strong in English and literature.

And women need to be smarter than men in at least ONE aspect, otherwise they’re just not as useful. But women are just as useful as men are, but in a different way. If we weren’t very useful, then our existence would be pointless.

>emotions are important pls

Did you read the source? Women are better with empathy. Empathy is hella important.

>caring about other people

You don’t really understand what empathy is do you? It’s the ability to understand and share the feelings of others. It isn’t just “caring about people.” I’d say empathy falls under the category of emotional intelligence.

He has “misogyny” and “sexism” listed in the bio on his blog, so trying to explain multiple intelligence to him is pointless.
A synapse is a connection between two nerve cells (neurons) that lets them pass signals to each other. The more neurons and synapses you have, the easier information can be passed around your brain and analyzed and whatnot (basically, more thinking power). Men probably have more of each as an evolutionary response to needing to be able to make quick decisions when hunting and fighting and all those kinds of things. While better empathy skills are necessary in women for child-rearing.

I’m Asian and I find this quite offensive even though I’m not white… Why don’t you theracismrepellent say the same thing about Asians to Blacks. Why don’t you educate yourself about the different cultures. So if there’s white privilege then is there Asian privilege?
