Who else didn’t watch the Oscars? I’m sure that many people were excited to watch a bunch of rich people give each other awards and explain why they’re so great; some people just like that kind of stuff. As for the rest of us, we eventually heard about how there were some bad jokes at The Oscars along with a bunch of rich leftist actors acting as if they’ve studied the “causes” that they claim to champion. One of the best speeches to get a good laugh at was the very wealthy Patricia Arquette demanding the following of society: “It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America.” She’s so smart, she’s even calling for another amendment to the Constitution. I suppose that Arquette has never heard of the Equal Pay Act. Isn’t just touching to hear rich leftists decry inequality? It’s as great as hearing someone like Warren Buffett demand higher taxes when he could always just donate his money.
Let’s not forget that Patricia Aqruette received here award for that amazing film Boyhood. Who else has seen the Red Letter Media review for that amazing piece of cinema history? All of the great stars, like Lena Dunham praised Arquette for her speech. You know, the same Lena Dunham that makes up fake rape stories about being “raped by a Republican“ just because it seemed like a good fit for her stupid book. Don’t forget, facts don’t matter with the rich, progressive leftist. Now to tear apart Patricia Arquette’s narrative about the gender wage gap.
You’ve probably heard numerous feminist/leftist/socialists mention something about women earning 77% of what men do in the United States. It turns out that when you do things like control for various factors such as: job occupation, time on the job, number of hours worked, and many other important details that leftists will just gloss over. Perhaps if elementary school teachers weren’t 91% women they might get paid for a full year of work. If you’re a feminist such as the socialists at Salon though, doing more research into the topic isn’t important. Just scream racism, bigotry, misogyny and whatever other word you like to smear your opponent. Remember, if you don’t see things the way a leftist does your opinion can’t be tolerated by tolerant liberals. It’s OK for feminists to pretend to (or actually) hate men though.
You’ve probably had enough of me rambling on now, let’s get to the heart of the matter and see how much the gender wage gap holds up to scrutiny. Enjoy!
As always, facts are for losers. Just use some anecdotes, it’s even better than real evidence!

I just can’t get enough of the feminist version of “equality.” Can you?
