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

Published

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.

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

on

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.
