Getting the Woman Out of Women

The single greatest obstacle to turning women into fully productive members of the workforce, i.e. batteries,

is not men obstructing them but their persistent belief in metaphysics. If the thing that is keeping women out of the underpaid labor force is "family", then family must go, and if what pulls them towards family is love then love has to be a fantasy. -- The Last Psychiatrist: Don't Hate Her Because She's Successful

Your Say

So, how can women get Feminism moving again?

Ex-Lax, my dear, Ex-Lax.

"Use Ex-Lax (boom boom) the foaming cleanser (boom buh boom bub boom boom boom), soaps the dirt right down the drain..."

What, you say? That wasn't Ex-Lax, that was Ajax.

When it comes to Feminism, that's a distinction without a difference.

I've been in the workforce for about 30 years now, civilian and military, and if you want to put aside philosophy and talk about where the rubber meets the road, here's my observation:

Women are not as productive as men.

Sure, there are all sorts of qualifiers and ways of looking at jobs and work, but at the end of the day, comparing apples to apples, hour for hour, men do more work in a week, month or year than their female counterparts. Say what you want about social justice and nurturing, when it's my money paying someone to come to work, the only place I want a female is selling to a bunch of men, and she'd better be attractive.

Now feel free to flame me so hard you have to run to the gas station and reload.

A guy I pay $10/hr gives me $11/hr of work, while a woman gives me $9/hr and you can't change that by shooting the messenger.
