Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.
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)
True love is when your pet comes to your room on its own.
You did it.
You made it.
It’s Friday and you made it through another week of school and work and all that other not fun stuff
Go you! Why not have a nap and a good dessert? You deserve it.
You’re not a bad person for the ways you tried to kill your sadness.
things i’m fucking stellar at:
- having really bad posture
- wishing i was rich
- never hanging up my clothes
I suck at texting unless:
- I am in a relationship with you
- You are my mom
- I need something
- Me and you are close as fuck
