It’s been often said that women earn anywhere from 60%-80% of what a man’s salary is in the exact same position.
And while that particular line item has been debunked as being a gender rule and more along the lines of what happens when you look at overall averages and neglect to take into account that women temporarily leave the workforce to raise a family for a portion of the time that men continue to earn money — there is still some truth that some women do earn less than some men in particular careers.
Who doesn’t love a good escapist vacation to Las Vegas?
Granted, it all depends on whether you can appreciate everything that Las Vegas has to offer, whether it be the gambling, the sun, the food, the celebrity sightings, the nightclubs, or the random hook-ups with complete strangers resulting in waking up in a bathtub with a note about how your kidney was stolen and sold on Craigslist.
When was the last time you went swimming in public?
Are you the type of man who feels it necessary to wear a t-shirt or a diving shirt when you hop into the pool? Or are you a man who proudly flaunts your man-boobs for the entire world to see? (no, you don’t get bonus points for having amazing abs — you are not the type of guy who would hide them in the first place)
How old is too old to have a child? How young is too young to responsibly become a parent?
Would you have your first child when you were 50 years old, after the majority of your career has been handled? Or would you like to have your first child when you’re fresh out of college at 21, putting your career on hold for a few more years until you can return to the workforce?
A good bowl of cereal and Saturday morning cartoons were a rite of passage for many growing up in the 70’s and 80’s. Today’s kids don’t know what quality kids-oriented TV programming was, since everything now has to be sanitized to ensure that nothing is directly marketed towards kids.
Remember McDonaldland and all the fun characters that Ronald McDonald used to hang out with? Don’t see them much on TV anymore, do you? It’s a surprise that they still show up at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, considering the promotional aspect of having a clown as your spokesman.
With all the recent news about major gender-related crimes and intolerable acts against women in India and other countries, Web Watch thought it would be worthwhile to point out that this is not new news at all.
Women have been fighting against cultural bias for years – decades – longer… and this doesn’t, shouldn’t be the case in this day and age.
Web Watch knows a large number of women who are pregnant, or couples that just have had their first child in the past year or so. Maybe we’re just hanging out with people who happen to be of a particular “let’s have children” age in their lives right now.
We get it — having kids is usually something that’s carefully planned out and organized, and only rarely is caused by the random double-pairing of a dirty martini and a late night movie.
How many sexual partners have you had over your lifetime?
Whether it’s just zero or one, or more than 100, the number of partners that you’ve engaged with has made you who you are today – for better or for worse (although we hope it’s for the better, no matter which your choice has been).
But while you may (or may not) be comfortable with the number of partners you’ve had, you still have to deal with others’ perception of you based on that number.
