Sexist California Thinks Women Can’t Be Successful Without Government Intervention

Last week, CNN released a report detailing the latest effort by the People’s Republic of California to advance the cause of social justice warriors. In this most recent endeavor, California legislators passed a bill that would penalize publicly-traded companies for failing to place one or more women on their board. Yes, you read that correctly.

Now, one could define such an action as a form of tyranny—the act of government coercion to force a certain aesthetic on a company board of directors certainly falls under the definition of the Left’s favorite f-word, otherwise known as fascism. The very idea that progressive philosophy should be forcibly applied to private entities is certainly problematic enough in and of itself.

However, the aspect of this decision that is certainly the biggest slap in the face to working women is this medieval notion that women need government intervention in order to attain high level positions in these companies at all. Women like Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman of HP didn’t seem to need that help, neither did Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook, Ruth Porat of Google, or Barbara Corcoran of Shark Tank fame. The very idea that qualified men need to step aside from their positions so that less qualified women can fill their quota spits on the hard work of women everywhere who actually attain these positions based on the merits and not to fulfill a government requirement.

Such a decision degrades women’s contributions in the workplace, trivializing them as nothing more than a burden of special treatment and not workers of equal value. It is a step backwards for women who have fought to be seen as equals in the workplace, and will only foster resentment among men who were cheated out of a position for which they would have otherwise been qualified. It also gives women no impetus to achieve that position on the merits—why would any man or woman make the effort to work for a job they could more easily get by having a government mandate force someone to give it to them?

In the name of social justice, we are required to right the wrongs done to women of the past by forcibly taking action to achieve the result of equality of outcome. In reality, California’s decision mocks the work of women as never having been good enough to compete with men in the workplace, the ultimate definition of sexism.

How to Debunk the Gender Pay Gap to Your Friends

BREAKING NEWS: I’M OFFENDED

That’s right folks, I’m offended by that feminist lie that women are yet again victims of another patriarchal evil known as the gender pay gap–the idea that women are paid substantially less than men for equal work simply because they are women. This nonsensical idea is fed by reports from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Office of National Statistics, based on what journalist Milo Yiannopoulos explains as broad averages of men and women from all societies, all income levels, and all walks of life regardless of other factors. The feminist infested culture latches on to these statistics as evidence that there is massive discrimination against women in the workplace, indoctrinating many unsuspecting culture consumers who passively receive only partial facts.

There are several reasons why this notion that discrimination in the workplace causes women to earn less is false:

-women work more part-time jobs

-women choose jobs that are lower paid

-as child bearers, women are more likely to stay at home taking care of children rather than working in a paid capacity

-men tend to work more difficult and more dangerous jobs

The most deceitful way that feminists assert that there is a discriminatory wage gap is by presenting wages as if they are the same as earnings. By explaining the difference between the two, you can easily debunk the gender pay gap to your friends with my simple illustration. If there are two employees, one male and one female, each doing the same job for $10 an hour, they make the same wage. However, if the female employee chooses to work part time while the male chooses a full time position, the male will necessarily earn more income overall than the female. Feminists–and liberals in general–will disingenuously imply that women only earn less because they are paid a lower wage solely due to the fact they are women, which in reality is completely untrue.

So the next time Hayley Atwell or Jennifer Lawrence trots out on stage complaining that they made less money than the men they worked with, remind your friends that Western women are not victims, they have free reign over the types of work they choose, and if they really want to make as much or more money than men they should go out and earn it!
