Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.
It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.
Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.
THE LAST LINE
This. I am tired of seing this numbers without thinking about woc. (via arobynsong)
its so ridiculous when a fandom cant accept the fact that a character died so they come up with the weirdest theories about how they could still be alive and most of the time they make literally no sense canonically
the fact that tsukiyama is a college student fucks me up man like. wth. gourmet trash sitting in a humanities class, imagine that sucker taking a stressful exam and getting anxiety and muttering ‘calmato’ to himself like. tsukiyama doing college things amuses and weirds me out
I love the fact that the first kaiju was named Trespasser.
It suggests that the reaction was less “OH GOD ALIEN INVASION” and more “Oh woaaaah you are NOT supposed to be here and god knows where you came from but please leave, now”.
