No, there actually isnt. Its a myth. Women are paid the same amount as men for the same amount of work. There is no wage gap for the same job. Here are some more sources.

Really?! Really?!

Are you really that ignorant?

Oh wow the 3 sources you’ve given me, which have been debunked in my 37 sources, totally changes my mind

Even if those three sources are true, the women being payed less would have every right to sue because the Equal Pay Act makes it illegal for women who work the same job, the same hours, and have the same qualifications as a man from being payed less.

Respect all women. Respect the women pissed at the world. Respect the unbelievably positive women. Respect the women who don’t “put out” Respect the women who enjoy casual sex. Respect the women not from your country. Respect the women who don’t speak their mother language. Respect the women who have had abortions. Respect the women who are young mothers. Respect women with mental illness. Respect the women with disabilities.  Respect women like you would any man.
 EDIT: so, it was brought to my attention that the term special needs was albesit and I would like to apologize for offending any one with my misguided term. I have changed it to disabilities and would like to again apoligize, I’d like to thank User ms.pauling for informing me of my mistake. :) I hope this edit shows up on the further reblogs

If you’re going to insist on the dispersal of “respect”, I think you missed a few here:
Respect the women that don’t believe in your form of “activism”, and disagree with your methods of promoting the empowerment of women.Respect the women that don’t carry a perpetual victimization complex, even when they’ve been victimized themselves.Respect the women that actually understand what gender equality really means.Respect the women that stand up for men being bullied by brainless “feminists” who think feminism is equal to chauvinism.Respect the women that actually bother to find the truth behind common “feminist” myths.
Meanwhile:I will NOT respect women who spread lies in order to create an issue where there isn’t one.I will NOT respect women who use their gender as an excuse to avoid criticism for their questionable actions.I will NOT respect women that resort to common thievery instead of doing the work they were paid for.I will NOT respect women who think I’m somehow any less of a woman simply because I refuse to call myself a “feminist”.I will NOT respect women who threaten or victim-blame rape victims who don’t agree with them.I will NOT respect women who send death threats to people simply for disagreeing with them on the internet.I will NOT respect women who obtain and publicly post the information of others simply for disagreeing with them on the internet.I will NOT respect women who harass others in general for not sharing their beliefs, because that doesn’t make you a “feminist”:  It just makes you a gigantic douchebag, regardless of gender.You see, there’s an important thing you should know about respect:  It is EARNED; NOT GIVEN.  And you are NOT automatically entitled to it because of your gender, or really for ANY reason besides showing others that you DESERVE it.And lastly,Respect the woman who created this cartoon pony, who doesn’t believe in the kind of man-hating radical “feminism” that’s running rampant on tumblr.  Maybe respect her right to not have her characters be used as political mouthpieces for the sake of easy notes and popularity, or even better:  Respect the mothers who probably don’t want to have to explain to their young child what things like “put out” or “casual sex” mean, because they found it attached to A FUCKING CARTOON PONY.
Keep your half-assed attempt at politics out of children’s cartoons, especially when (unlike other adult content) there aren’t filters to keep it from being found by children.

You see, there’s an important thing you should know about respect:  It is EARNED; NOT GIVEN.  And you are NOT automatically entitled to it because of your gender, or really for ANY reason besides showing others that you DESERVE it.

And lastly,

Respect the woman who created this cartoon pony, who doesn’t believe in the kind of man-hating radical “feminism” that’s running rampant on tumblr Maybe respect her right to not have her characters be used as political mouthpieces for the sake of easy notes and popularity, or even better:  Respect the mothers who probably don’t want to have to explain to their young child what things like “put out” or “casual sex” mean, because they found it attached to A FUCKING CARTOON PONY.

when i was in year 5, i did a speech on clumsiness for my school’s public speaking contest and to be clever, i tripped on my way to the stage dropping my note cards all over the place, but then i pulled the real ones out of my pocket saying ‘if you’re going to be clumsy, it pays to be prepared!’

everyone lost their shit and i got second place

If you got second place who got first… Did they talk about fire safety and burn the stage down or something

Male Body Positivity

striboogie:

Thick or thin, muscular or no, if you have lumps and bumps where you think they shouldn’t be, if you think you’re too skinny or bony, I just wanted to let you know that you deserve to be happy and have someone love you.

You’re all human beings! Beautiful human beings. 
Don’t forget that whether or not you think your body is the ideal body. 

Your body doesn’t make you a Real Man, YOU make yourself a Real Man.  

Now smile, you handsome thing!
