    Kukowski goes on to reiterate the usual conservative talking points that blame women themselves for being paid less, because "women and men hold different jobs in different industries and varying levels of experience." But if the problem is just that women, in aggregate, are worth less, then why is there an objection to greater transparency? Indeed, if you're confident that women are making less because they deserve less, you should welcome a federal database that has experience, title, and gender data in it. After all, won't it just prove your point?

    Sure, there's always the danger that greater transparency will show that women are not being paid the same as men commensurate with their titles and experience.

    Who says titles and experience should dictate how much you are paid? I would think how much you actually work and how productive you are would count more.

    More feminist concern-trolling. This time by Joan Walsh

    Pay inequity means that women lose an average of more than $400,000 in wages over the course of their lifetimes. The infamous “77 cents on the dollar” figure approximates the overall difference between men and women, and conservatives like to claim it compares apples and oranges: Female teachers to male congressmen, for instance. The truth is, multiple studies by the American Association of University Women and others show that the gap exists across all professions and all education levels. In some fields, it’s wider, in some it’s smaller, but it’s omnipresent. And it’s much worse for African-American and Latino women, who make 62 and 54 percent of white men’s wages, respectively. (Asian American women suffer the smallest wage gap, earning 87 percent.)

    So why doesn't every capitalist just fire all the white guys and hire black women?

    The Democracy Corps poll also makes clear what many Democrats have suspected: Women like the fact that the Affordable Care Act prevents insurance companies from charging them more than men. Rep. Paul Ryan, who insists the GOP will still push to repeal Obamacare, is handing Democrats another weapon, the poll found.

    You think Joan has her knickers in a twist that men pay more for auto insurance?

  • BiMonSciFiCon||

    Steven Hayward is a professor of Conservative Thought at the University of Colorado in Boulder. As for Professors of Liberal Thought...well, they're too many to have a separate title.

    Here's a quote/paraphrase from the Chairman of the Faculty, Professor Paul Chinowsky, referring to Hayward:

    "He said if the university expects its students to respect diversity, the faculty members need to show their support for inclusion and a welcoming, safe campus....

    ""We have an obligation to really support all members of the community here, and if we're not, then what are we saying to the students?""

    Of course, these remarks were in support of *disciplining* Hayward. For what? For this online article, which criticizes "gender-bending diversity mandates" -

    http://www.powerlineblog.com/a.....bender.php

    There is at least some faculty skepticism about discussing Hayward's case. Said one prof: ""The moment we come out and say something, no matter how nicely we state it, 'While we respect diversity of opinion, at the same time we have a responsibility to uphold the dignity —' as soon as we engage in this, he's going to spin this as, 'There you go, I was attacked by the liberal faculty at CU.'""

    Sandra Fluke masters the art of politicking: fuck nuance, WE MUST DO SOMETHING!!!

    A significant gender pay gap still persists, which is why we cannot be passive as we acknowledge Equal Pay Day. This year, Equal Pay Day is April 8th, which represents how far into 2014 women must work to earn what men did in 2013.

    While it often feels like our battle for gender equality has come so far, it's startling to see that women still earn just 77 cents to the dollar that men earn. Women of color are hit especially hard: African-American and Hispanic women earn 70 percent and 61 percent, respectively, of what white men earn. Without any male income in their household, single women and lesbians may feel the pay gap effect all the more. This wage gap costs working women and their families more than $10,000 annually, and over a lifetime that cumulative effect of lower wages jeopardizes women's retirement security.

    Although women in California earn more than the national average, the majority of women in the district where I'm running for California State Senate actually earn far less. In most of our district, women earn on average only 69 cents to the dollar of what men earn. That is unacceptable, and something I will work hard to change when I'm in office.

  • Grand Moff Serious Man||

    Okay, okay, to be fair, Ms. Fluke does have some ideas that have totally never been heard before:

    Another way to bolster the economic situation of women is to make sure they have high-quality, affordable childcare options. The cost of childcare is a huge burden for working families, and if we want to support a stronger middle-class we need to make more of an investment in the programs that will help them the most. That is why I will be a champion for increased investment in early childhood education. Investing more in early childhood education, in addition to being a great boon for children's educational aptitude, will give parents flexibility and more opportunities to pursue their careers with adequate support. Increasing the State's investment also provides increased job opportunities for early childhood education providers, an industry primarily staffed by women.

    Equality is being liberated from making life and family planing decisions.

    I think it's also notable that despite European countries heavily investing in child care and passing laws mandating paid leave for parents, the birth rates are still declining.

    Psychological warfare in response to drones.

    A new project, initiated by a collective of artists from around the world including the French JR, has tried to reach the people pulling the trigger in America's drone wars—the drone operators themselves.

    It’s called “Not A Bug Splat,” and its gets its name from the term drone operators use for a successful “kill,” because—in the pixelated grayscale of the drone camera—ending a human life looks like squashing a bug.


    Not a Bug Splat
    The collective created a huge poster of a child whom organizers say lost his family to drone strikes in Pakistan’s heavily bombed province, Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa. “Now, when viewed by a drone camera, what an operator sees on his screen is not an anonymous dot on the landscape, but an innocent child victim’s face,” reads the project’s website.

    Not bad, but how long before software automatically wipes out photos on the feed?

    DNA analysis suggests Hitler might have married a Jew before committing suicide

    DNA analysis of hair samples from a hairbrush claimed to belong to Eva Braun, Hitler’s long-term mistress who married the Nazi dictator hours before their joint suicide, are said to contain a specific sequence passed through the maternal line which hints at Jewish roots.

    The sequence of mitochondrial DNA belongs to haplogroup N1b1, which is strongly associated with Ashkenazi Jews, who make up around 80 percent of the global Jewish population.

    “This is a thought-provoking outcome — I never dreamt that I would find such a potentially extraordinary and profound result,” Mark Evans, presenter of Channel 4′s documentary series "Dead Famous DNA," said.

    Bought by Evans for $2,000, the strands of hair came from a brush monogrammed “E.B.” that was found at the end of World War II at Hitler’s Alpine residence, the Berghof in Bavaria, by an American army intelligence officer.

    Braun was 17 when she first met Hitler in 1929 and fell in love with him. Concerned the relationship would affect his image, the Nazi leader, 23 years her senior, confined Braun to a sheltered life at the Berghof.

    Florida pastor of mega-church resigns owning to 'moral failings'

    The senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale resigned after confessing to cheating on his wife, which disqualifies him from continuing his leadership role at the church.

    Bob Coy reportedly confessed to key leaders that he cheated on his wife Wednesday. A board meeting was called the next day, when he resigned.

    Coy, who has led the church since its founding in 1985, said he will now focus his full attention on his personal relationship with God and his family.

    "The governing board of the church is providing counselors and ministers who will help guide him through the process of full repentance, cleansing and restoration," a statement read.

    A churchgoer was brought to tears as she spoke to Local 10 about Coy's resignation.

    "I'm very sad, but, you know, we're all sinners," she said.

    Assistant pastors who are on staff will continue their usual rotating schedule as teaching pastors for all services, a statement from the church said.

    The question is did he confess out of guilt or was he caught? Haven't found an answer that that yet.
