Who thought THIS was a good idea? The LGBT crowd is gonna be pissed…
The new feminist mantra is that women should be paid more than men because ‘Equal Pay Is Not Enough’.
Oh, you crazy, angry feminists!
A premium footwear brand has come under fire for a viral ad – which links their products to feminism and claims: ‘Equal pay is not enough’.
The ad, by Danish company Bianco, points out that ‘it’s more expensive to be a woman than a man’ and also features violence against men which has outraged viewers.
The controversial clip portrays women jumping on cars, smashing glass with a stiletto and a coffee mug being broken across a man’s face.

The argument is that because women pay more for ‘women things’ they should be given a higher salary?
Um, that’s completely stupid.
So, what of their ‘Gender Pay Gap’ claim?
Let’s take a look:
MYTH: Women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns—for doing the same work.
FACTS: No matter how many times this wage gap claim is decisively refuted by economists, it always comes back. The bottom line: the 23-cent gender pay gap is simply the difference between the average earnings of all men and women working full-time. It does not account for differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure or hours worked per week. When such relevant factors are considered, the wage gap narrows to the point of vanishing.
Wage gap activists say women with identical backgrounds and jobs as men still earn less. But they always fail to take into account critical variables. Activist groups like the National Organization for Women have a fallback position: that women’s education and career choices are not truly free—they are driven by powerful sexist stereotypes. In this view, women’s tendency to retreat from the workplace to raise children or to enter fields like early childhood education and psychology, rather than better paying professions like petroleum engineering, is evidence of continued social coercion. Here is the problem: American women are among the best informed and most self-determining human beings in the world. To say that they are manipulated into their life choices by forces beyond their control is divorced from reality and demeaning, to boot.

With more women enrolling and graduating from post-secondary institutions, and the declining enrollment of men, it is women that will be getting the top jobs. Those management jobs come with higher salaries.
There is even a 2010 study that corroborates this — showing that there is a reverse Gender pay gap, because single, childless women living in large cities make more money than single men do.
