I like this quote from the piece:
"It's not like these companies don't like women because they are women," says Jeff Isaacs, the chief assistant Los Angeles City Attorney who runs the office's 300-lawyer criminal division. "But there are two things that really scare them and they are breast cancer and pregnancy. Breast cancer can really be a costly thing for them. Pregnancy is right up there too. Their worst-case scenario is that a child will be born with some disability and they will have to pay for that child's treatment over the course of a lifetime."
Oh, so it's incidental sexism. Whew.
was a semi-serious conversation about this making you feel icky? Jesus.
I had no idea the largest pay disparity would be among whites, and that it would be so striking.
Women in the U.S. make, on average, 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. Even when you take into account that women often occupy lower-paying professions such as teaching (you could say that these are low paying because they're largely populated by women, but OK), and even when you consider maternity leave, there's still a gap of 5-10 cents per dollar that economists can't explain except for gender.
This can't be attributed to education levels, either. Women are outpacing men in earning college degrees. Institutionalized sexism, yo. No good.
When will the next session of your Cultural Math course start? Must make room in my schedule.
That suit is damn sexy.
Phillippe is just showing off. His picture is more gay-man porn, while J-Hamm is clearly lady porn.

Damn you, tv gods!
