Guess what gals?! Today (April 14) is Equal Pay Day 2015! Let’s all celebrate by kicking off our pantyhose and going to a bar to drink Cosmos (if they’re on special) and chatting about things like high heels and lasagna recipes.
What’s this day mean you might ask. Well on average, this is how far we ladies have to work into 2015 in order to make the same amount the gentlemen did in 2014. Think about that for another second. No, really think about it. It’s a fun concept, right?
Now I’m more on the side of gender equality rather than proving one group (like women) might be more superior. However for the sake of today’s post, I’m going to go ahead and talk about all the things I think women can do better than men. Because GO WOMEN!
I can do 100 things at once. Chris can do 1.
-Making to-do lists. And crossing that shit off!
Don’t believe me? Next time you’re with a group of men and women ask them both to do a simple cartwheel and see who’s better.
-Teaching the future generation.
(69% of people in educational services are women. )
-Having the flu and still being a human and not moaning on the couch all day.
(man flu is the worst flu.)
-Cleaning the house in less than 5 minutes when guests pop by.
-Throwing away unnecessary mail.
-And empty shampoo bottles.
-And price tags removed from clothes.
-We’re just better at throwing away things that should be thrown away I should say.
-Making pretty staged photos on Instagram.
-Doing good for the world.
(66% of people who work in grant making and civic operations are women.)
-Actually running through an entire play on offense in a basketball game.
(This one came from Chris. But I get it. Lady ballers run plays, men just shoot.)
-Helping those who need it most.
(73% of social workers are women.)
-Having entire fake conversations/arguments in a our head in preparation for one that may never actually play out… Just me? Okay…
-Talking on the phone.
-Resisting the urge to cat call.
Sometimes I see a really good looking dude on the street and want to say “hey man, you’d be a lot cuter if you smiled!” But I don’t. Because that’s rude.
-Noticing details. Every detail.
-Painting our nails.
-And finally, we’re better at producing new humans.
We’re really good at this in fact. And every day we’re getting closer to finding a way to doing this on our own… So buck up men, and start treating us like we should be treated, or we might just take you out of this equation.
