Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Yes folks, it's that time of the year again. Spring. And of course National Offend a Feminist Week, when a young blogger's fancy turns to wanton disregard for Womyn's Studies pedagogy.
And what better way is there to offend your local feminist than by providing conclusive proof that the gender pay gap is a myth? That's right Bra Burners, when all your overwrought hyperbole and faux-victimization is set aside the underlying statistics don't lie.
There's a mountain of data, research, and studies from sources like the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Census Bureau, even a 2011 White House report prepared by the U.S. Department of Commerce for the White House Council on Women and Girls, that all say the same thing.
The gender pay gap is not a result of discrimination, coercion, or anything like that. To put it simply, it's a matter of women's choices.
Many women sacrifice pay for all sorts of reasons including security, safety, flexibility, and fulfillment. Their priorities are vastly different than men's. And when you account for that, when you compare apples to apples, when women actually make the same career choices as men, there is no gap. Men and women earn the same.
And lately, women are starting to earn more than men.
A 2010 analysis of Census Bureau data showed that young, single women who've never had a child actually earned 8% more than their male counterparts in most U.S. cities. The findings seem to be driven by an ongoing trend: more and more women — now more than men, in fact — are attending college and going on to relatively high-paying professional careers.
So, what are the odds we can get a congressional investigation into the newly
emerging male wage gap?
