A new study suggests women earn about half what men earn

Article here. Excerpt:

'Women may face a much wider wage gap than commonly cited data indicates, earning just half of what men earn over 15 years. That's according to a new study by economists who analyzed the incomes of men and women who worked for at least one year between 2001 and 2015.

The standard annual wage gap measured by the Census Bureau shows that women make 80 cents for every dollar earned by a man. But this statistic leaves many women workers out of the picture, Heidi Hartmann, the president of the Institute for Women's Policy Research and an author of the study, tells CNBC Make It.

IWPR's methodology incorporates workforce attachment — those more "strongly attached" to the workforce are defined as working at least 12 out of 15 years full-time and year-round — and looks closely at both the consistency and long-term growth of earnings to capture a more nuanced picture of women's careers.'

... what men have known for millenia: that women live off men when they can.

Did the authors ask themselves how the women lived in their middle class styles while earning so much less than men? If they had they'd've found out that men were paying for them and their CHOICE not to work.

But the authors probably don't care.

Having a man support her is still a legitimate option for women, not so for men. But when the man supports her and she then cleans her own house, she is then encouraged to complain about all the "unpaid labor" she performs.

An otherwise reasonable woman can suddenly turn feminist/victim when it suits her, any time, esp. if she is upper-middle class or better. I don't have even short-term fuck and chuck rel'ps with women of my own class, as a classist may put it. I fuck any kimd of woman who likes to fuck and not much else. Women of a certain class want everything you have in exchange for pussy and will do anything to get it, incl. lie and act all victimized. That's why I don't even try to fuck them.

Once you stop looking to such women for anything you quickly notice the far more numerous women of "other classes" who love to fuck. I doubt very much I'll ever date much less try to fuck women of my own class again. They're not worth the time, trouble, or bullshit. Plus there are plenty of far cheaper alternatives.
