Dear Young Women, You are Being Lied to About Your Salary Options

On the heels of yet another Paycheck Fairness Act defeat, you may be scratching your head and wondering why, in 2014, equal pay is still just a fantasy. Well, ladies and gentlemen, GOP activist Phyllis Schlafly has the answer.

According to Schlafly, not only is equal pay for equal work a “notorious falsehood,” but there’s actually a very simple, very obvious reason why women don’t — and shouldn’t — earn as much as men: hypergamy. In other words, women prefer to have a higher-earning husband. If the pay gap were eliminated, “Half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate.” Better yet, “The pay gap between men and women is not all bad because it helps to promote and sustain marriages.”

The thinking here is that not only is every woman straight, but every woman’s biggest concern is finding and keeping a husband.

I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.

It’s Equal Pay Day – a day that shows how far into 2013 women must work to earn what men earned in 2012. After all, women still make just 77 cents to a man’s dollar. This gender gap affects women (and their families) from all backgrounds, ages, and at all levels of education – and it’s unacceptable. 

Re-blogging because (unfortunately) this is still a thing.
