Doctor Forced to Apologize After Exposing the Truth About Gender Pay Gap in Medicine

Published

on

If you’re ever desperate to see what a triggered liberal looks like as they lose what little bit of common sense they possess, all you need to do is talk about how the gender pay gap is a complete and total myth.

This is a lesson Plano, Texas doctor Gary Tigges learned the hard way this past week. Tigges was interviewed by the Dallas Medical Journal and gave a reason why female doctors are paid less than men. To say it didn’t go over well would be a gross understatement.

“Female physicians do not work as hard and do not see as many patients as male physicians. This is because they choose to, or they simply don’t want to be rushed, or they don’t want to work the long hours. Most of the time, their priority is something else … family, social, whatever,” Tigges told the Journal. “Nothing needs to be ‘done’ about this unless female physicians actually want to work harder and put in the hours. If not, they should be paid less. That is fair.”

Saying female physicians “do not work as hard” is a terrible way to say they don’t work as many hours. This seems to be what he was going for, as he said it again “work harder and put in the hours” later in his statement. I see those statements as connected, not separated – as in, he’s qualifying the “work harder” claim rather than making two separate claims.

I say this because it’s a common saying when people who are not orators discuss the wage gap (which should be called an “earnings gap”). Harvard Economist Claudia Goldin used similar language when she was discussing the gap back in 2016.

A lot of female physicians have different priorities than their male counterparts, as many of them shoulder more of a burden for the care of the family unit at home than men do, thus they choose to work fewer hours.

As the author of the quoted piece noted, Tigges’ point is valid, just very poorly expressed.

The outrage over the doctor’s comments was so bad he was forced to offer an apology:

“I have heard from several trusted female physician colleagues who disagree with and are deeply hurt and offended by the comments,” Tigges said. “I sincerely apologize to all female physicians for my comments and the pain they have caused.”

Now, while he certainly should’ve thought through the expression of his point, his lack of tact doesn’t mean what he said is any less true. What he said is absolutely true and is well supported by the facts he offered.

The left is just so easily offended these days that rather than ask for clarification from Tigges, they assumed the worst about the man and then proceed to smash him to bits online.

This is how the left has “dialogues” with those they disagree with these days. A shameful practice to be sure.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
