“Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.

Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.

It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …”

bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink 

this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1

A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

That’s some bullshit right there.

Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

Oh wow, it’s been a while, huh? 

This week I was sick so I was in my bed reading different fanfictions… And you know what? For me there’s no other fandom that has that many talented writers as DCU Batfamily. So I read some of your works on AO3 and you guys as awesome as I remember. No, you are better than I remember! You guys rock! And Timmy will be always my number one superhero! Though, I couldn’t read new 52… Tim was not Tim and I dropped it. Is it got better, though?

So yeah, here’s a casual Tim :3

I really like the design of his clothes and the colours, they are wonderful. Tim in a sweater, jeans and sneakers looks really cool.
