Enough to live off of based on the cost of renting. That doesn't work though, as it does not factor in the value of the labor to the employer. Why should an employer be forced to pay you more than you're worth to them? Tell me why people back then working labor were able to make enough to live off ...

Businesses make so much money they can afford to pay living wages. Look at cooperations. They can afford to pay a living wage. It's just greed and refusing to keep up with inflation. Do you own/operate such a business? You're forgetting that not every business is Amazon. I'm well above minimum wage...

Source please, it is your job to back this up wince you make this argument please. Apparently you were being sarcastic here? In any case, the post to which this was a response contained a statement of ethical values, not factual claims. Yes I being sarcastic to make a point. This is how sealioning ...

I have been enjoying the r/antiwork sub on Reddit and I have learned how bad it is in the US to work and how many work places mistreat their employers. Now so many places have a shortage of them or have had to close their business due to not being able to hire new people. Raise your damn wages and o...

Just to make sure my position isn't getting twisted, the behavior being described by the term "sealioning", i.e. asking questions in bad faith in order to make someone waste time and effort does happen, however the vast majority of the time when I see that term deployed, it is itself bein...

Please provide the source where sealioning isn't real. If you want to make this claim, it is your job to provide a source for this to back up your argument. The one exception I would make to this rule is for someone who is a member of a long-marginalized minority group, talking about an issue pertai...

Hmmm, I still think that if someone makes a claim, it should --usually -- be that person's responsibility to back up the claim. Except people aren't often making an argument and you are the choosing to see it an an argument so when you decide to go "source" me, I just assumer you're lazy ...

So, do you think if he used "you dumb f**k", then it would have been okay because it does not refer to her gender? It might be a cultural difference - but to me, being offensive is being offensive, gender-specific or gender-neutral does not change much at this point. The fact the mom want...

The older boy was rude and should have been called out for it but he was defending his distressed brother and this definitely should have been recognized. You can defend your sibling without being misogynstic just like you can stand up to a bully without being racist or ableist if they are a person...

Why is b***h misogynistic, but Karen is okay?? Also, I work with women every day who generalize about men and that's acceptable. Or the phrases toxic masculinity and male entitlement ...there are toxic and entitled people. No need to make them sex-specific, when it's the behaviors which are the pro...

Ugh, I might have fallen for this trap. TERFS for example will feign ignorance and pretend they want to understand so they ask questions. But their intent is to twist your answers and try and get you to contradict yourself and try and make you look stupid. Look. It is not our job to educate people. ...

The fact the 12 year old was allowed to call a woman a b***h is concerning. That is misogyny and it's no different than calling a black person the N word or a disabled person the R word even if they are acting like that woman. There are other words to use besides demeaning language. Going PPR here ...

Newsweek The internet defended a woman who allowed her child to curse at a woman while in the grocery store . . . This is how Toxic Males are made. Having to deal with toxic Karens? Not being discouraged from showing aggression and contempt toward women. Sometimes being assertive or even borderline...
