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



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.

Riot? Insurrection?

John Salvatore



Left-wing violence is not violence to the left. Rioting, looting, fighting back against cops – those people are the real patriots, they’ll say. But when a group of supposed conservatives are literally invited by cops into the Capitol building in Washington DC, it’s insurrection! Check out what happened on Friday near Seattle. Did you hear about any of this on the news? From KIRO7: BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Protestors broke into City Hall in Bellingham on Friday, forcing the mayor to be escorted out of the building for safety. Mayor Seth Fleetwood said it is impossible to ignore the parallels to the storming of the Washington D.C. Capitol Building on Jan. 6. CONTINUED: “It was unsettling,” Fleetwood said. “They banged on the door and we got word they had somehow broken it open and were entering, and I was advised to leave,” he said. Fleetwood said he was ushered out a back door and driven away from the building to his car. WATCH:

Pro-Choice Protesters Storm Catholic Church In Middle of Mass, Call for Abortion On-Demand

Is there even a word for this kind of depravity?

John Salvatore



“Two, four, six, eight this church teaches hate!” That’s what these crazed radicals chanted when they stormed into a Catholic Church like a pack of imbeciles. Considering Joe Biden is a “devout Catholic” – LOL – he’ll surely have something to say, right? This is not a story you’ll see on news broadcasts tonight. From Catholic News Agency: “Fund abortion, not cops,” said one of their signs. “Abortion on Demand. End Hyde Now,” said another, apparently referring to the Hyde Amendment, which bans most federal funding for abortion. At least two protesters wore vests that read “clinic escort” on the back. Police and church officials escorted the protestors outside, where some protesters appeared to make obscene gestures at them, according to video from The Columbus Dispatch. Friday marked the 48th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which mandated permissive abortion laws nationwide. WATCH: This is the definition of pure evil.
