    UFC champ Ronda Rousey is asked by a reporter about her thoughts on gender pay gaps in sports, specifically regarding the Australian women's national soccer team, The Matildas.

    Good for her, though it seems ridiculous to pat someone on the back for stating the obvious. I suppose that's where we're at now, I've seen moronic women on ESPN argue that NBA and WNBA players should have equal pay.

    Yes common sense but when NBA stars like LeBron James are appearing in radical feminist advertisements, I'm glad some top athletes are speaking honestly at least.

    and her answer was well worded and concise

    The whole 'modern feminism' movement is going nowhere. There is no pay gap between men and women - it exists only because women tend to take years out of the workforce to raise children, and if you account for the years off, the pay levels are actually identical between men and women.

    Female porn stars and strippers make a lot more than males, and I doubt I'll be getting a job at Hooters anytime soon. Men and women aren't equal and as long as issues like domestic violence arrests are overwhelmingly slanted towards men, and men are overwhelmingly shit on in divorces and for child custody, and men are the ones fighting wars on the front lines, then the idea of 'equality' is bullshit.

    Most women I know don't even want equality. They like their privileged position and men are happy to provide it.

    Who wants to watch women play 99% of sports unless they are so far ahead of their comp that its just fun watching them humiliate the competition or they are smoking hot.

    The best WNBA player to ever play the game would not make the roster on any division 1 or 2 college team. They MAY make a team as a bench person on a division 3 team. But even the top 50 high school teams in the nation would DESTROY the best WNBA team.

    base salary isnt usually where the big money comes from anyways.
    its sponsors, and sponsors dont GAF what sex someone is, they only care how much profit the star can generate
