Yeah! Equality! Miners should get air conditioning too!
@Alliance, this one was going to try for a top comment on this picture, but I simply cannot compete with your comment. This khajiit is very impressed
If women aren't applying as much for these jobs it's not really an issue of equality though. Like how most manicurists are women.
@HolyCatchphrase, but if women want an equal shot at having a job they need to either: A) Draw from an equal pool of possible jobs OR B) Make themselves more qualified for the jobs they do draw from. Quotas on male/female workers are shjt because they nullify the qualifications of any men that didn't get in before the quota was full.
@HolyCatchphrase, then what is the problem? Not as many women apply for business jobs either. Jobs with female-dominated applicants are nursing, teaching, etc and what a surprise! Those jobs are vastly female dominated
@hollow114, check yours. Business isn't 50/50 unless you factor in administrative positions such as secretaries. Women make less because they occupy low risk positions, work less hours, and take more time off. If you factor in those, you find that women make on average
0.5-2% more than men.
@WilfredMott, except no. Business is pretty 50/50 pay isn't. Check your facts.
@WilfredMott, lol. High risk jobs? Right. They don't pay well. You know women work in meat plants. Very high risk. Cherry picking jobs. For the loss. The issue is 6% of CEOs are women. But the business workplace. And no not secretaries, lol. Is 50/50.
@WilfredMott, I wasn't even making a statement on inequality. This picture is just an invalid argument. Inequality would be demonstrated by a job taking in about the same number of male and female applicants but hiring mainly one or another. No need to get your panties in a bunch.
@HolyCatchphrase, my mistake. I think we agree. I thought you were implying that women are subject to discrimination.
@WilfredMott, well they are subject to discrimination. Not all the time but sometimes that still happens.
@HolyCatchphrase, Everyone is subject to discrimination.
@hollow114, High risk jobs don't pay well? Lol, oil rig workers easily earn over 100k a year, why aren't women clamoring for that position?
@hollow114, Apparently there are more male CEOs named John than there are female CEOs period.
@HolyCatchphrase, I think you've got the right idea. Gender equality in employment isn't about making every job 50/50 male/female, it's about making sure that someone's gender doesn't prevent them from doing what they want to do.
@bashwell, This is it in its entirety.
@shakeweight, except that most CEOs spend many many years working up to that point. A large percentage of women who are on that track, take time off to raise their kids. If you take 5-10 years off of work, is it surprising that you don't get as high on the corporate ladder?
Equal rights in the military! ...except only men can get drafted...
@ caucrasian , women also can't be ordered into combat. They can find themselves in combat of course, or be ordered to give support, or stand watch, but it is against federal law to order a female soldier/marine/sailor to storm a beach, attack a fortified position, etc. That's why there are no female navy seals, because they wouldn't have a purpose.
@talmet, we need equal rights (or lack thereof) in the military.
@talmet, some of the things people do to women in those countries we fight in...i wouldn't want women on the front lines
I thought I saw a thing that said sanitary workers were actually fighting for equality.
@MissKitty, and with that, this upload is instantly shjt. Well done.
@MissKitty, I think you're thinking of parks and rec...
@Stag GT, already was, didn't you see the sewer works? (Besides it being troll bait!)
@HighJack2, I honestly wasn't trying to be a troll. I just thought it was an actual thing.
@MissKitty, I knew a few women who tried to get into these types of jobs. Many of the men (but not all) were completely against it, claiming the women were incompetent and dangerous, and threatened to quit if they were hired.
What is said: "equal rights". What is really meant: "equal benefits, no equal downsides"
This also contributes to the pay gap. Since a high risk job = higher reward, and more men take high risk jobs than women, it makes logical sense that men on average earn more than women.
But men are better suited to labour intensive work, as they are more physically able
@MY CAPSLOCK IS STUCK, that's a stereotype.
@MY CAPSLOCK IS STUCK, I don't feel as though this statement is correct. Anyone can building muscle to do a job. I know plenty of women who would be better suited then some men to do labour intensive work. Men being more capable in that area is a stereotype that has been ingrained in our heads by history and not by actual fact.
@Tim Howard, It's science. Testosterone causes more natural muscle growth, and since men naturally have more testosterone than women, men naturally have stronger muscles and are better suited for hard labor. Obviously, I'm am speaking about the average man and woman. On the individual level it does vary and some women do have more testosterone than some men, but the average man has more than the average woman. The average man who doesn't work out will naturally be stronger than the average woman who doesn't work out. It's nature, not a stereotype.
@Mad4Power, read my above comment
@CriTiKa1, Yes that may be true. However, nature doesn't decide everything. Therefore, not all men are better suited. Naturally, maybe. On the other hand I know men who are naturally weaker then some women due to their natural build. Nature aside, we don't live in a completely natural world. Due to people nurturing their bodies, men aren't always better suited for labour intensive work. I honestly believe that in most cases either gender can typically do whatever job they want. Obviously not it all cases, but in most cases all anyone ever needs is enough training for a certain position.
@Mad4Power, Notice how I said "average". You know what that means don't you? Also, like I said, there are individuals who are outliers, there are some women who naturally have stronger muscles than some men, but these individuals are outliers. Yes, anyone can work out and build more muscle strength, but my argument is that the stereotype you were speaking of came naturally, since it is easier for the average man to build muscle strength than it is for the average woman.
@CriTiKa1, You're right. Stereotypes develop for a reason. Humans like patterns and therefore use the average to create stereotypes. However, if you let stereotypes rule how you think, then you're ignorant. Just like your original comment.
Oh wait, shut up
The whole issue pisses me off. We don't need to worry about percentages of demographics in the workforce. What we need to do is crack down on the managers and bosses who exercise discriminatory hiring practices.
Your race, gender, sexual orientation/identity, background and creed are irrelevant. What matters is are you capable of doing the job.
For example, I'm personally against recent immigrants being hired at fast food places to be behind the counter. If you can't speak the local language(s), you should not be dealing with customers.
I'm not saying this pic is sexist.... but yeah its sexist.
Because women are smarter
@jessblairegoff, doing a great job of proving yourself wrong there
Female, and I've seen Mike Rowe do my job.
I'm a professional researcher of social equity issues, specifically labor relations. I'm also a woman. Would love to shut down a lot of these comments but again, I'm a woman and this is funny pics so who'd believe me? If I have your attention I'll opt for the line: raise your consciousness and question everything.
NOT TRUE, WTF.
Hmmm I get the feeling a man wrote this
Women have been fighting for equal treatment in all friends that are nasty and make dominated since they existed. Stfu with bs, you uneducated idiot.
my take on this argument is this: women are biologically smaller/ weaker than men. It's not a sexist thing, it's a biology thing. Of course there are some stronger women just like there are weaker men but i'm generalizing here. The argument here really doenst apply, because what women do bring to society is their intelligence, less grunt work in comparison, and for those positions where men and women are both on the same intellectual plane is where they want equality. The buisness positions and the higher level more intelectual positions. If that makes sense.
Everyone come join the funny pics group kik chat it's: #FunnyPicsCommunityKikchat
@Mr Phreak, I can't find it. :(
@Mr Phreak, The last funny pics chat I joined was filled to the brim with deprived males and females that just jabber and jabber. So I am going to hit: Decline.
You realize it's equality in pay
Nono you guys forget that air conditioning is sexist!

Can we stop playing genders against each other? There's a new definition to feminism now. There are extremists, but they're not real feminists. As a real feminist, all we want is equality for BOTH genders. I'm a woman and I honestly think it's unfair that men are "supposed to" pay for dates, that I'm not required to sign up for the draft, and that the mother's typically get the children in a divorce (along with many other men's right issues). On the other side, I also fight for women's rights (that most of you already know about). If we worked together then we'd get further, but if the genders keep attacking each other when we all just want equality then we get nowhere. Let's lift each other up instead of dragging each other down.
Leslie Knope would say otherwise...
Miss that show...
Its making light of the fact that women involved in each of these careers dont cry for equality. But the women in the coshy office jobs do.
How does one use Hi-res on the new update? 'Cause as it is now, I can't read any of the pictures.
