Naah! This is all too much of a Sausage Fest already man...:Smile_ohmy:

 

Just leave it at that. This may all be a clever ploy to try and recruit more hot gamer chicks into WoWs I hope. :cap_haloween:

Tell that to the women who earn less for the same work men do and get abused at their work place regularly.

Western nations have pretty well defined laws against pay discrimination. I wonder why people screaming "pay inequality" aren't using them...:cap_cool:

Thats a different thing. Ofc this is not right.

But since you are german, you know in eastern germany ppl still earn less and get less pension than in western germany, regardless of gender?

 

But FORCING equality doesnt work. Like having Womens quota in Politics/manager positions. Its about qualification, not about fulfilling quota. If a women is more qualified, sure she should get the job. If not, then not. But i feel ppls judgement is clouded with that.

 

Back to WOWs:

How would it hurt WG to do the same thing for Mens day? Which proves my point of women having a special event, thus being MORE equal than Man. Saying its Mans day everyday is wrong - that would mean, there would be an event every day. Only because there are (i agree with that) places where man and women are treated differently, doesnt make it right to change the treatment in favor of women and call it equal :fish_book:

Getting flags one day a year helps...How? 

 

And if you're going with that, where's the men's flags and camo for the 10 fold risk in health issues due to work and I believe 20 fold increase in suicide rates due to work? 

 

And the wage gap is sub 5% in Europe. 

It's mostly due to men typically asking for raises more often. 

 

 

 

I don't have a care in the world about men's day, and don't care about this topic in particular, but man, white knight [edited] drivel that completely ignores half of the issue like what you just posted drives me nuts. 

 

Especially if it's just defending the act of throwing cheap virtual goods in women's way and arguing against doing the same for men's day in a sort of petty vindication and "who had/has had it the worst" pissing contest.

Maybe we can aim at something like this next year - the challenge for you guys would be to come up with a men's day themed camo :cap_popcorn:

Cool idea, wouldn't ask for it though.

 

This topic is just unproductive to begin with.

Paygap - Myth, convince me otherwise, with a study that does not only take a small percentage of jobs and probants into account....

Womans Day is fine to celebrate , so much to thank them for.

Useless topic is useless.

Your graphs (first picture) show what I said. And that is only a selection.

Too often this does not happen.

But I agree that you have to be careful with quotas. You do not want incompetents in important positions, unfortunately many men manage to get there anyway despite their deficits....

It helps WG. It is an image thing.

I'd suggest closing this thread or moving it off topic because now we do not talk gameplay here but idiology and since it's pretty much never gonna end in a respectable compromise cause the blame game allready is on.

It just got more Unproductive and useless....

Asking for something like this might go wrong - VERY wrong. I already know, what such a camo would do to my ships funnel...:Smile_veryhappy:

So you expect a (female) nurse to get as much payed as a (male) computer technician???

Because that's what the graph is against...

Equal pay for equal work. Read again.

Quote

Unadjusted pay gaps are much higher. In the United States, for example the unadjusted average female's annual salary has commonly been cited as being 78% of the average male salary, compared to 88-93% for the adjusted average salary for college graduates.[3][4]
