Once I become Dr. McCreight, I can finally make as much money as a man with a bachelor’s degree.

More likely, because they know they have to work twice as hard to overcome the “fat people are lazy” stigma that follows them everywhere.
Is the work actually equal?(What the fuck was wrong with Discus last night?)
And the sick thing is, I have no idea if you’re joking. :(

I was going to use the familiar British expression “suck it and see”, but that might come out the wrong end here. :-) Try it out. Which is more work: for a man to do, say, 5 sex scenes, or for a woman to?
It still boils down to sexism. Studies have shown that women who do negotiate are perceived differently from men. A man who asks for a raise is a go-getter. A woman who asks for a raise is an entitled bitch.
Well, on the plus side, it will be just awesome to be named “Doctor McRight.”

There can be substantial difference in risk even for the same profession. A doctor can decide to be staff at a hospital, or open their own practice. According to Steven Pinker in “The Blank Slate” (247), men are more likely to work for a corporation and women the government or non-profit orgs. One pays more than the other, even for the same job. Women will also make other trade-offs more often men do, like to work closer to home, in a better facility, with more flexible hours, etc.., but there is naturally more competition for such jobs and thus, lower pay. Furchtgott-Roth & Stolba used data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth and determined that childless women ages 27-33 earn 98% of when men in that age range earn. The point here is that raw data on differences in pay are inadequate to prove anything about sexism. You have to control for all relevant psychological factors. Here is a Dept. of Labor commissioned study on the wage gap: http://www.the-spearhead.com/w…Quote from the forward, written by the DoL: “Although additional research in this area is clearly needed, this study leads to the unambiguous conclusion that the differences in the compensation of men and women are the result of a multitude of factors and that the raw wage gap should not be used as the basis to justify corrective action. Indeed, there may be nothing to correct. The differences in raw wages may be almost entirely the result of the individual choices being made by both male and female workers. “

But child support is a *legal* issue, not simply a social norm. That’s an apples-to-oranges comparison.

‘If I don’t meet a man who isn’t willing to do half the housework and half the child care, I won’t be getting married.’BWAAHAHA!! Good luck with that one, kiddo…
