There are 3 comments on BU Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Team Feminism Campaign Goes Viral

    1. Ahhhh gotta love the vague factoidist. Comes wandering in to throw down what they think is some sort of shutdown comment, the grand silencer, the comment to end all comments.

      Often (and is no exception in this case) fails to understand that their comment lacks substance. So let’s provide it:

      The Equal Pay act has no bearing on the treatment of women within social, political, domestic, religious, grammatical, any other sphere outside of the economic one. And even then, because salaries are usually closeted information, there’s not really much enforcing this law outside of an honor system. And don’t go screaming about the law, because if bias causes someone to be passed over for a job or a raise or promotion or what have you, all the Equal Whatever acts in the world don’t mean a thing. Feminism (and ideally intersectional feminism) seeks to combat the biases that keep them from being ineffective.

      Try harder, Richard.
