Another quote from a comedian offered without comment.Mr.B wrote:
But just in case you find it worth repeating somewhere, keep in mind that the main reason females only make 70-something percent on average of males isn't based on getting "a dollar less" for the same job. Most of the discrepancy is that the females weren't hired for the better jobs. Obviously there may be a number of reasons for that, but at least part of the reason is discrimination.
Even the "women and children first" part of the ummm "humor" has no basis in maritime law. According to disaster evacuation expert Ed Galea, in modern-day evacuations people will usually "help the most vulnerable to leave the scene first. It's not necessarily women, but is likely to be the injured, elderly and young children."
Well, nobody said comedians have to be accurate or base their ummmm, "humor" on truth.
