Even little kids have a wage gap

  • Boys, on average, spend two fewer hours doing household chores per week than girls do (they play two hours more).
  • If they live in households where children are compensated for doing chores, boys make and save more money.
  • A 2009 study conducted by University of Michigan economists found a two-hour gender disparity in responsibilities per week in a study of 3,000 kids.
  • 75 percent of girls had chores, while just 65 percent of boys do
  • This disparity in chores and free time continues into adulthood all over the world. According to the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), men “report spending more time in activities counted as leisure than women. Gender differences in leisure time are wide across OECD countries.”
  • Year after year, studies repeatedly confirm these patterns.
  • The problems women face with unequal pay and housework duties actually start in childhood.
  • The fact that boys’ chores appear to be more profitable makes the childhood chore gap even more disturbing. Turns out, parents tend to value the work that boys do more.
  • Gender stereotypes dictate these patterns.
  • men who grow up with sisters do less housework than their spouses and are also significantly more socially conservative.

Just had to bold that bottom point there because of the amount of misogynists who claim that because they have women in their family, they can’t POSSIBLY be sexist ever.

oh my fucking god

I vividly remember all the families in my church where the grade-school boys were goofing off with toys and the girls were being handed younger babies and turned into babysitters.

Boys got to be boys, but girls had to be Moms.

Really, it ‘s a serious drag that even little girls today could answer #WithoutTheWageGapIWould

Really interesting post to come across while I’m in the middle of writing a lesson (sort of) centered around the wage gap

These facts sound crazy, but they’re actually true. 

Ok but lobsters are immortal?

Functionally immortal, But as with everything inherent in the universe far from invulnerable. A rather cruel trade off

You’re functionally immortal but trade off is your flesh is delicious.

Lobsters actually keep getting bigger each time they molt, almost without limit.

Somewhere, deep beneath the ocean is one who has managed to avoid death for thousands of years. Gigantic. And waiting.

Not sure if I should be frightened…or placing the largest butter order in history…

Now HE is a role-model

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

This dude is fucking EPIC

"It’s my right as a parent to circumcise my kid!! Besides, they won’t remember it and children don’t have legal rights!!"

Okay, so does that mean I can cut off my child’s feet and hands because they won’t ‘remember it’? No? Then you don’t have the right to cut off a part of…
