Many first-world citizens have bought into the movement of feminism. Feminism is the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.
One of the very few arguments feminists make is in regards to the gender “wage gap”. The “wage gap” has been disproven time and time again, as there are clear explanations as to why men are paid more than women on average, such as the jobs they take, and the time they take off.
In fact, if an employer were to actually pay a man more than a woman who both work the same job, it would be illegal, under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, making it unlawful for employers to discriminate based on gender. If an employer is doing this, it is the responsibility of the woman to report this. Ask yourself this: If the “wage gap” did exist, and women were to be paid less than men, why wouldn’t employers hire women exclusively?
The primary issue with feminism is the fact that the movement upholds the rights of women, exclusively. I consider myself to be an egalitarian, not a feminist, as egalitarianism is of, relating to, or believing in the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities.
I feel that and advocate the fact that all people deserve equal rights, not just women. Egalitarianism in itself utterly destroys the “necessity” for feminism, as egalitarianism encompasses rights of women, as well as the rights of all.
