This is totally off topic, and I apologize.

But every time I see this thread pop up in my unreads, instead of seeing "Pay Gap" I accidentally read "Pap Gay" and end up thinking to myself, "WHAT about Gay Pap smears??"

K, done.

As you were.

Besides, the truth about the gay pap has nothing to do with any of this stuff.

Care to enlighten us?

Salary, gender and the social cost of haggling
Research shows men are more aggressive than women in asking for a raise


These differences, Babcock and other researchers have concluded, may partially explain the persistent gender gap in salaries, as well as other disparities in how people rise to the top of organizations. Women working full time earn about 77 percent of the salaries of men working full time, Babcock said. That figure does not take differing professions and educational levels into account, but when those and other factors are controlled for, women who work full time and have never taken time off to have children earn about 11 percent less than men with equivalent education and experience.
