People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter
This is 1000% more motivating than every preachy “real writers write every day” post on all of Tumblr.

Ah. Well then that just completely sucks.
By far my favorite argument I’ve heard against this is that it could be exploited (or more likely, get the decision reversed) by allowing people to sue the owners of corporations directly.
After all, the whole point of corporations is that people can say “the corporation isn’t me, it’s a separate entity” and protect their personal assets. But if the corporation has the same religious beliefs as you, then gosh, maybe it is you. (Unless you want to argue that the actual construct of the corporation itself has developed religious beliefs, which would be fascinating to watch someone try to prove in court.) And then maybe we should put the beach house and the fourth car up for auction next time your company gets in trouble.
This was my thought too. If the owner doesn’t want the corporation to be treated as a separate entity, that’s fine … but it works both ways, and in all areas. No one gets to say “whether the corporation is separate or not depends on which is more advantageous.”

THERE IS NO PATRIARCHY.
THERE IS NO WAGE GAP.
THERE IS NO RAPE CULTURE.
FEMINISTS, STOP CREATING ABSURD, ILLOGICAL AND MYTHOLOGICAL THEORIES TO PROMOTE YOUR HATE MOVEMENT.
do you even live on earth or like are you blogging somewhere on neptune if so hows the food there
The wage gap is, like, numbers. I can see why someone might not see the other two if they’re not obviously happening to him, but there’s actual data on the wage gap.
(Which is not to cast doubt on patriarchy or rape culture, just, they’re more inchoate)
