Sexism is disgustingly evident in America, Pennsylvania and even our schools! Yes guys, the wage gap does exist for women, and yes, it is disgustingly sexist. If you take a woman and a man and place them at the same job, both have the same position and both do equally well, usually the guy will get paid 23 cents more than the girl. You may say, "Hm 23 cents? That's not a lot, why complain?" Because it's not the fact that we're getting paid less... well it is... But it's the idea. It's the thought of sexism. It shouldn't be happening, 23 cents or not! Men will get paid more just because they are a guy! You see it in sports, companies ,even Hollywood! No. Especially Hollywood. Hollywood is a big offender of this and it's repulsive. You hear it all the time from actors. Both share the same screen time, both are critically acclaimed and yet the guy will get paid more.
This topic blows my mind and disgusts me at the same time! Women everywhere get cat-called, groped, and sexually abused and it's absolutely unacceptable. Why do people think it's okay? Why do some men think they have the right to just walk up to women and grab them? News flash men: It's not!
As much as we like to say sexism has gotten better, it really hasn't. Yes, it doesn't show forms like it did before, but now it's in how men respond to women and how they talk about them and their bodies. In politics, men always say that a woman couldn't be president becuae they "can't handle the pressure." That is simply ridiculous.
While we're on arguments let's go to abortion. Even though I do not agree with it, it should not be the MEN choosing whether or not to abort! That should be the woman's choice! Men are not the one's who will carry the baby, they're not the one's giving birth and chances are, they are not the one's that will take care of that baby. It should always be the woman's choice. Always.
Ladies, we have been taught our entire lives that this is okay. We've been told that it's accepted in society and we have to deal with it. But ladies... we don't. Don't accept gender stereotypes, change them! Change society's standard of women! Okay, rant over, thanks for listening.
