 Forum: Politics, Philosophy, and Religion   Topic: Why do some women think there is a wage gap?

The woman earns 70% of what the man earns because she has worked only 70% of the hours that the man has worked. Again, there is no "Wage-Gap Policy"; but the way that wage scales are negotiated, a wage-gap occurs when one person works more hours than another person for the same number of ...

I hear it's a common problem for female gamers to be belittled for their gender, so it's possible. Another possibility is that it's not because you're a woman but because it's you , as in that gamer community dislikes you as a person for one reason or the other. Then there's also a chance that those...

No.  Every person I know who has been vaccinated against covid is still alive, even those who caught the virus after being vaccinated; and everyone I knew who did not get vaccinated and caught the virus has died. It's good if those vaccinated are still alive even after catching covid, but I'm curio...

No. Without the restrictions there would've been more deaths, more serious cases and probably more lasting effects for those who did get infected. Same with if there weren't vaccinations. Some might ask if the restrictions are worth the toll they take on economy, and people tend to have some differi...

I agree with Sweetleaf, but I'd like to ad that you should consider what these people think about football. Do they like watching the games? If not, then it's a waste to buy them tickets. If some of your options don't even like watching the games, I'd say you should automatically cut them out of opt...

If healthcare is in serious danger of being overwhelmed then yes, a lock down should be put in to place. Economy will suffer, sure, which will indirectly harm some people's health as well, but I think it's the lesser evil of the two... I mean, some people are worried of rising suicide rates due to l...

Well, this seems to be an entirely different thing from "not having patience for irrelevant details". In this case, yes it is very much relevant: in fact relevant enough to be personal. Yet Kraftie says the issue is patience with details, which is completely different. I mean, What Krafti...

Well, their attention could be about pity or, considering your behavior, it could even be out of fear of you hurting someone if you don't get the attention you throw tantrums for. Anyway, if I was in your shoes (and honestly, even in my own shoes), I'd take even those "pity friendships." Y...

Well, having close friends certainly wouldn't hurt, so it's good to do something about it, but if the trying to make friends -part is really stressing, then it's probably better not to over do it. Put in effort to the point that it's comfortable enough, but if just the thought of going out and meeti...

If someone hears a sound that seems out of place or see something they didn't expect to see from the corner of their eye, it's a natural reaction to turn to look what it's all about. I wouldn't call that judging, though if the people keep staring, then I suppose in that case they do judge. Though of...

They're good things that you had a part in causing, sure, but since you originally did them for yourself, they can't be called selfless even though you didn't end up benefiting from them. Then again, I tend to think that in cases like these, it's the results that are more relevant than the intentions.

Is there a way you could perhaps write whatever way it comes out and then clarify things if I get confused or misunderstand something? I could try... Okay, so one thing is that people are likely to be more comfortable talking about things, especially anything personal or things that have potential ...

That's only officially diagnosed cases, right? Is there some kind of statistics on how many of the people who get the symptoms actually go and get tested? It could be that in some states people who get symptoms don't go and get tested, and so they aren't shown in the statistics. That's one thing tha...

I am not sure where you are with this as it is now a disease that needs meds. Do any doctors make a suggestion of writing a diary of foods you eat daily? I find my gallbladder condition requires me to stay away certain foods. Considering the bowel is part of the digestive system, maybe perhaps cert...

Well of course, "am I making you uncomfortable?" can include the idea of you possibly looking suspicious, but it could also mean making another person uncomfortable in some other way. Asking "do I look suspicious" is a much more precise yes or no (or in some cases, I don't know) ...

The easiest way for me to start a conversation would be to ask whether or not I look suspicious because that is the one question I already been asking some people so it won't be stepping out of my comfort zone nearly as much. But I couldn't bring myself to ask that either since, like I said, it did...
