The Myths of the Pay Gap, Sexual Assault Stats & Oppression of Women

Why we have to stop living in generalizations and deny, avoid or change nature, preferences or the biological differences of men and women.

Femininity is a concept that is unique and deeply personal to every woman. She will have her own definition based on her cultural and educational background, self-awareness and personal growth journey as well as simply the depth of her interest in exploring the definition.

“Damn it! This is my show and I gotta stop playing it nice and trying to be careful and not offend anyone all the time #politicalcorrectnessisoverrated… I have a voice and my experience and my views have the right to be expressed.”

Generalizations

Let’s address generalizations

If “everyone” (read: women influencers) is saying that patriarchy has indeed ruined us all keeping women voiceless and powerless, then it must be true!

RIGHT?!

WRONG.

Perhaps I am just some sort an alien female creature that has been #blessed who sees so much opportunity, so many great men and women around, so much non-oppression!! Perhaps indeed I am the only one in this world who thinks that we live in great times and instead of complaining about how women have been “insert-your-own-passive-voice-verb,” I think there has never been a greater time for women to succeed, to achieve their dreams and live their best lives!

We can’t simply generalize serious concepts without deeper research and self-inquiry, then repeat them, repost them on social media, believe them and then behave them. It’s not that simple.

“Feminism cannot give you power. Power is an inside job…

I don’t need feminism because I know my power. It’s so vast and great that no legislative authority can take it from me, and, therefore, no legislative authority can give it to me because it is innate in my being…

So how can feminism give it to me? It existed before feminism was even a thought in a mind of a wounded woman…”

The Pay Gap & Sexual Abuse “Facts”

And, of course, if Obama says that for every $1 a man makes, a woman makes $0.78 cents it must be true!!!

“The gender pay gap figure is typically calculated by first adding together all of the annual salaries of women who are working full-time, year-round, then finding the median salary — that is, the salary that’s in the exact middle, with 50 percent of the women earning more than that figure and 50 percent earning less. Then the same calculation is made for men working full-time, year-round. Once those two figures are determined, you can compare them and calculate the pay gap [source: Glynn].”

Bearing Children

“Wait a second…I have more money than I need. I’ve proved everything to everyone, including myself… I’m with a partner who earns a decent income… Why the hell am I struggling so much, working so many hours and pushing so hard?! It’s bloody exhausting. I’m done. Oh wait, I also feel like I would like to create a family, deep connection and shift my priorities. Maybe I need 3 months of travellin in Italy to rediscover myself and what success means for me.”

So the perceived “pay gap” will remain where it is no matter how much we push because we can’t deny, avoid or change nature, preferences or the biological differences of men and women.
