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

This reminds me of something that has bothered even when I was little.  As a child, I loved the outdoors.  I practically grew up camping and hiking with my dad and grandpa (who never treated those things as BOY things by the way).  To me, boy scouts were the coolest.  Going out on camping trips and learning wilderness survival?  Count me in.  Then I found out I was not allowed to join boy scouts because I was a girl.  For me, there was girl scouts, which are not even remotely the same thing. Oh you want to learn how to survive in the woods?  Why don’t you go sell some fucking cookies instead! Not only do those organizations separate genders but clearly assign gender roles at very young ages and even as a little girl, I said fuck you to that and went outside to live in my own outdoor fort.

OH MY GOD THIS IS A PERFECT REPRESENTATION

I will never stop my assault on tumblr and feminism

You will never silence the voice of men, never.

You can not gain equality unless you give it.

Ps? Getting kicked in the testicles is scientifically more painful than giving birth. So you can fuck yourselves.

I will never give up until every tumblr feminist is gone, withering away in the dirt. The egalitarian master race sends their regards.

Feminism is outdated.

Guys look fresh men tears

"scientifically more painful" when science can lay down a universal standard of pain tolerance i’ll delete my blog and join mma fighting lmfao

Also it is estimated that a man would need to pull his scrotum over his head to experience the pain of childbirth so talk to me after you do that

tumblr made me think about a lot of things but mostly social justice and my eyebrows

When the moon gets between the sun and the Earth, it’s a solar eclipse.

When once upon a time you were falling in love, and now you’re only falling apart? There’s nothing you can do, it’s a total eclipse of the heart.

For all of you able to see this month’s lunar eclipse…soak it up. And while you’re at it, appreciate it with a moment of silence for all of us in the Northeast who live in suck-ville, USA.
