I feel sorry for the low-T male simps that play that game with women, looking to score enough good boy points to get a girlfriend. They'll suffer all that indignity and grovel at how bad men are. Then she'll say she's had fun but now she has to go and have a date with Chad.

Well that's discriminating against men in real world, if you read the full thing.

awfully picky for someone who makes rant threads about not getting any female attention

maybe you were born with it. maybe it's your personality. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm not a chad. Sex is a pretty low priority for me. I crave meaningful intimacy, not a meaningless fling. Besides, I've had my share with crazy earlier this year.

This is sexism. also it's not very consequent that the game itself costs the same money for men and women.

And male players get more money/get rewarded for watching a movie with a female main character?
What a bullshit... this is so stupid

You guys seem not to realize, that this game isn't about fairness or equality, but to display what's going on in the worklife just the opposite way. The game was created to provoke exactly these discussions about unfairness and equality. I doubt many people will play it, but just having such a game invented at all created quite big stir

Yeah, this is just a publicity stunt. The company is signaling its values, in a way that will create a stir and get people to talk about them. I would bet every cent I have that this was thought up in the PR and marketing department, not the sales department.

Gender wage gap is *mostly* a myth. A study came out of Harvard last year comparing the frequency of promotions granted and promotions asked for in Australia (with a decent sample size of 4,600 something), and while there was disparity in the number of promotions granted favoring men, the number of promotions asked for was about the same. It came out to be a 5%-10% difference in the number of promotions granted, which over time contributes to that wage gap. Whether or not that is based on sexism, biology, societal pressure, maternity leave, etc. is up for debate.

Just to be clear, that was comparing nearly identical jobs in the same sector across multiple companies.

In sports it's a bit complicated. Men get paid more in total in sports, but that's because way more people watch mens sports then womans sports. When you look at the amount made by the league compared to the amount made by the players, you find that women get a bigger chunk of the income in sports.

the adjusted wage gap in the uk is abound 5% when it comes to base pay.... you can say its not a lot but it is what it is....

also when getting to those 5% you need to not take into account any factors that women overwhelmingly does, and are needed to make a society functional. Most obvious example being childcare.... it's an individual choose, and one could just not get kids, but somehow i think that would have a negative impact in the long run, if a significant amount of people took that chose....

@Mista Sista: Please don't be an idiot. Running regressions on data taking into account only one variable (gender) inevitably leads to a strong omitted variable bias.
Women and men are different, I don't understand why that's so difficult to get through people's thick skulls. The 5-10% disparity could be due to any number of other factors, this is an idea you would entertain if you didn't look at the world through a narrow gender lens, where you justify everything that happens to anyone based solely on their gender.
This is a very frustrating topic to discuss, economics doesn't support it and logic doesn't support it. This is an idea that is propped up by career feminists who make money of delusional women, just like that clown Kenneth Copeland makes millions off americans.
Career feminists will push any wacky idea that they think will get traction, it's their career. Any economist with two braincells will tell you the gender wage gap is a joke.

economics does suport it, and the adjusted wage gap does take into account many factors, all the factors that one would expect to explain a wage gap in fact. you are simply wrong.

This is one of the newest, and best studies carried out on the gender wage gap to date. It It is really quite interesting, as discrimination is not possible on the Uber app. Also note this study was carried out by a Stanford economist.
