When feminists respond with the line: "because people keep asking me why I'm a feminist", they're not suggesting that the question itself causes feminist beliefs, they're making the point that if people feel the need to ask, then they're are not aware of it's importance. They are suggesting that there will one day be a time when people won't ask because everyone will be feminist (although hopefully it will be given a more all-encompassing name by that time). We don't ask people why they are against child abuse like it's some kind of weird fad, but if we did, "because people keep asking me why I'm against child abuse" would equally be a powerful response. :)

Most of these studies still fail to apply for a number of different decisions. Degree, seniority, distance from home to work, amount of profit made for the company, hours worked, overtime, amount of days off taken, etc.

The results differ from study to study. Some that consider ALL the different factors suggest you can explain the entire wage gap. The ones that don't, find a difference with a maximum of 5%.

Pay differences due to gender are illegal virtually everywhere. If this was really the case, why isn't anyone starting a class action lawsuit? Because if you can prove this really happens, they would win the lawsuit instantly.

It also doesn't explain why it is that women under 30 in big cities out-earn their male peers.

I'm using this to help me study for my exam next week. It's beautiful and so relaxing. I love Yiruma. :)

I wonder if I'll ever be able to listen to this without crying.

People are far to eager to criticise her parents. They did what they believed was in their daughter's psychological interest at that time and not their cultural, national, religious, political or personal interests (as many parents would). They even admitted that they felt remorse for acting so quickly. How many parents admit fault? There's no reason to turn this into a political rant about liberalism either, as that's not where they were coming from. They were Josie-centred. Nothing could have prepared them for this as expecting parents. Judging by the comments here, I think we need more loyal and open-minded parents like Josie's. Parents who aren't afraid to reject what we perceive as normal for the sake of their child.

How awful. It's amazing how loving parents or carers with an open mind and an open heart can make the difference between misery and happiness in a child's life. ...Both are free too so there's no excuse.

The best part of these videos is the savouring face at the end of each one. :')

How you tied the taijitu together with black holes was brilliant. I'll think about that closing statement every time I see the Yin Yang symbol.

...And how much faith Los Angeles have in their police force.
