Women are bitches: A new theory on the wage gap from the Men’s Rights subreddit

The standard MRA take on the gender wage gap is that it’s totally a myth disproved by SCIENCE. But now the gap is apparently a real thing again in MRA-land, or at least in the Men’s Rights subreddit, because a fellow calling himself mrwhibbley has figured out a way to blame it on the ladies:

I am a male nurse and have worked in several hospitals. I have to say that the comments and attitudes between women are the reason for 90% of the wage gap. Women are constantly tearing each other down, while often ignoring the male nurses. That allows the men to advance while the women in-fight. Also, women have attitudes noticed by supervisors that are often negative, as they berate and gossip about other employees. It takes its toll on the workplace and women do it to themselves. Then they try to blame men for the wage gap, glass ceiling etc. time to look in the mirror and do more than check your make-up.

For proof, I suggest you watch this completely 100% percent true and not at all obviously staged phony video below:

H/T to the AgainstMensRights subreddit again!

D&D

“Now I’m not a nurse (are you?), so I can’t confirm what the guy says is true or not. It does rings sort of true in my experience, though that could just be confirmation bias. But if you’re gonna disagree, don’t you need to present an argument?”

Yes, I am an RN. No, what the guy says is not true and does not ring true. Yes, it is your confirmation bias.

I know we’re not too big on Traditional Gender Roles here, but I have to say I find the idea of a male nurse MRA hilarious.

Eh, gender role issue => finding male nurses! full stop! hilarious. Observation on how MRAs get about gender roles => finding the idea of them doing what they see as “women’s work” hilarious.

I’m assuming you’re laughing at how much that’d cause them angst and not the idea of male nurses, because really, the idea of them doing something they consider unmanly is pretty hilarious.
