Astronomers used NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to photograph the iconic Horsehead Nebula in an infrared light to mark the 23rd anniversary of the famous observatory’s launch aboard the space shuttle Discovery on April 24, 1990.

There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.

last night i woke up because two dudes were fighting underneath my window and one dude kept screaming “BRO!! BRO YOU CALLED ME A BITCH IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE BAR BRO!! THE WHOLE BAR!! WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT BRO??” he sounded so heart broken. why bro. why did you do this.

Question for future doctor, would you be working the same amount of hours? Would you be at the same hospital? Same specialty? Private, clinic or hospital for your practice? Those are things you didn’t mention in your so-called “pay gap.” Also if you believe this the case why not tell the hospital’s attorney? Because there’s really nothing wants more is to NOT have to deal with legal issues.
OOH, a question on your blog that I actually have knowledge about. Let’s talk wages! Here’s another reblog of the same question, so I can address both.
And 90% of people that die on the job are male. So when it’s a question of your paycheck or men dying violently… your first concern is about your paycheck.
I take that back. You’re not actually earning a paycheck yet. So when it’s a question between men dying tragically or your *imaginary* paycheck.. your first concern is for your imaginary paycheck.
Yeah. That sounds like Feminism.
That’s assuming there actually is a pay gap (there isnt)… even assuming that everything your movement purports is true you’re still a completely shit excuse for a human being.
Female doctors make less for multiple reasons, none of which have to do with your gender, anon.
1. Like 4 or 5 years after finishing their residences, most female doctors become mothers and choose to take time raising their children. (What sounds more appealing working 60+ hours not including being on call or being able to stay home and watch your children grow up?)
2. Women tend to choose different specializations than men do. Male doctors tend to specialize in money making practices like neurosurgery and other more lucrative practices. Women tend to become general practitioners and pediatricians, which pay less.
3. Men tend to work more once they get more control of their schedule. Female doctors tend to CHOOSE to work part time more than male doctors.
If you make all the same decisions as one of your male colleagues, you will make the same amount of money as him.
Let’s talk about this, eh?
I’m going to address the answer to this ask first… Men are more likely to choose “risky” jobs, working on construction sites, firehouses, the armed forces, etc. However, there ARE women in those fields *gasp*. Guess what? They’re probably just as risk of getting injured/dying on the job as their male counterparts, assuming that they’re doing the exact same job and doing their job properly. Female firefighters do NOT stand on the sidelines with refreshments. They do their job. Women can die on the job, too- and that’s not me being a feminist, that’s me telling you: women can die on their jobsites, too. Women don’t just sit in the kitchen anymore, we don’t all find jobs at daycares and schools and libraries and so on. There’s nothing wrong with women OR men who work in these jobs; I’m just saying that we take risky jobs, too.
Now, I actually wrote a 13 page paper on the differences in pay between male and female cardiothoracic surgeons. Men in this job field make about $60,000 more than the women, who in the study, were putting in just as much time. They were not “part-time”, they did not have children, they were all at the same hospital. Now… this actually invalidates pretty much every argument here.
So… as a woman who is also planning to go into medicine… I’m not picking a soft specialty. I’m most likely going into radiation oncology, which is a very highly paid specialty. However, I know that my male colleagues will make more than me. Even though I actually really hate kids. Even though I bust my ass in all aspects of work and school. I will most likely be paid less, simply because I have a uterus.
And if we want to get off the subject of medicine, I’d also like to add that there’s a pay gap between jobs that are traditionally held by women but are done by men. The other part of the 13 page paper I wrote was on librarians. Turns out, male librarians also make a hell of a lot more than female librarians. Sure, throw in your arguments about babies or men dying but I don’t know many people that have died from filing books in a library and helping people find books that they need. I mean, I think the most dangerous parts of working in a library are probably the threat of somebody coming in and attacking, falling off of a ladder, or if the electrical system shorts while you’re on the computer and shocks you.
I just don’t see how feminism has anything to do with men dying at jobs that they CHOOSE… there’s no draft in our country anymore. Nobody forces men to become firefighters. No one is holding a gun to the head of someone if they don’t want to work on a construction site. I just don’t see how that is even a valid argument.
Women make less money at jobs they choose… National fucking tragedy.. Men die at jobs they choose… Well it was THEIR choice.
And Feminists have a hard on for feminist “research”, you’re right up there with Creationists. An independent research company… Payscale.. which actually does account for experience, hours worked, etc etc.. (you know their entire business model being dependent on providing accurate information concerning. . You know… Payscales) found that when controlled for other factors men and women make the same. The only place any degree of significant pay gap existed was only at the highest levels of business.. and that was about 6%.
So again… you’re completely dismissive of men dying more often. Strangely enough you had to GUESS at how often men die vs. Women..
Strange that… why would you have to guess? Oh that’s right you’ve NEVER fucking researched it. At all.
You did, however, find time to write a thirteen page paper about a bullshit propaganda point you’ve swallowed whole and never thought to question seriously.
Oh dear god. I am not “up there with Creationists”.
If I chose to work at a “risky” job, I would probably have a good chance of dying, too! Turns out I’m terrified of heights. But I am a volunteer firefighter so clearly I know what I’m talking about when I say that men and women at my department are trained the SAME WAY. Neither are paid, because it’s a *volunteer* company.
Wages have absolutely zero to do with danger when it comes to medicine, sorry bud. They have to do with liability, cost of the procedure, cost of the equipment, medications used, and for the amount of time that is spent with the patient.
Where did I guess about men dying at their jobs…? I didn’t. I actually know that number, and didn’t make a guess. You’re literally putting words in my mouth.
And in case you missed it, I actually researched the wage gap on the CalTech library search engine, using a peer-reviewed journal article that was published in 2012. I didn’t use a pay scale or whatever. I used an article/case-study of several doctors working at a hospital who all had major differences in their pay based on gender.
Yeah, daycare providers make a hell of a lot less than doctors. I won’t fight you on that. But I’m talking about people who do the same job. Performing a surgery is very unlikely to kill the surgeon, sorry not sorry. You could catch an infection from a patient, sure, but you’d be held liable for not using the proper personal protective equipment (gloves, mask, protective eyewear, gown, etc.).
And considering that I addressed the job-related-death point first in my reblog, I clearly did not dismiss it.
You read between the lines and put words in the mouths of those who cross you. You seem to be the radical one here.
Not up there with Creationists. .. uses a case study involving “several doctors” to make a sweeping declaration on pay differences from a population of three hundred million plus people. Several WHOLE doctors?
No, you’re completely not a whackadoo.
And yes… you were dismissive. For example… If a woman remains at a job that she’s not being adequately compensated that’s *her* choice. Which strangely doesn’t seem to be a rationale you’d accept when applied to women.
