Wage Gap & Dating

I have a lot of thoughts about dating and most of them are not good. A subject that comes up frequently, aside from the usual looks-job-experience bullshit, is WHO PAYS? For this train of thought I will stick with the M/F pairing as this is what I have experience with and thus is really the only pairing I have any right to discuss. And my thoughts are this: yes it’s all well and good for men and women to be fair and equal but that shit is just theory. We are in fact not equal HELLO GENDER WAGE GAP. The fact that historically women have, and continue, to underearn men by a varied margin across race, is reason enough for any working man to foot the fucking bill when dating a woman, no matter her employment status.
