The 20$ bill is here to stay! Andrew Jackson Forever👌🏻
You may find that sexist, but look on the bright side! You'll only have to see that bill 70% as often as men ;)
@Dr Rick Sanchez, ha I get it
@Dr Rick Sanchez, you're getting too good at this commenting thing. I shjt you not, Colin and invisible man are gone. *grabs lab coat* ARE YOU ONE OF THEM??
@Abradolf Lincler, Ho Lee Fuk...
@Dr Rick Sanchez, wait until you see the lady on the ones...
@Dr Rick Sanchez,
@Dr Rick Sanchez, *ANTI-TRIGGERED*
@Abradolf Lincler, totally ;)
@Nosurrender, it is illegal in the US to pay women less and if it wasn't then companies would only hire women.
@BigfootUnibrowMan, logic doesn't work for feminists. They always quote the old AVERAGE OF ALL WOMEN income, and ignore the fact that more women are teachers, stay at home parents, et cetera than men.
@Dr Rick Sanchez, not true because they exhaust 30% from the man
@Dr Rick Sanchez, This comment pleases me
@Cpzombie, Although I agree that women tend to be in lower-paying fields, there's more to it than that.
For centuries, women were mainly caregivers/homemakers and men were mainly workers. Now that we have better technology and lower infant mortality, things can change. Unfortunately, old gender roles have become integrated into our culture and taken for granted. People from older generations grew up assuming that women must be less competent than men in fields like science, politics, etc, but how couldn't they be if they had to stay at home and raise children?
Things are changing, but slowly. Stereotypes don't go away quickly, and many girls still feel that they are inherently bad at things like math, simply because they are girls.
@IAmALittleUpset, you seem a little upset
@IAmALittleUpset, Sorry to burst your bubble but they are statistically worse at math. Also, their brains are simply not as good at it because of brain gender differences. Also why women are more creative than men and have better writing skills
@Dr Rick Sanchez, if only that statistic was close to true...
@Can yew knot,
49 people: "haha what a lightheated joke! Good one"
You: "f*ck this guy for joking about pay equality! I know best, and can't let people just enjoy a joke! ...now allow me to enlighten you about statistics"
@Dr Rick Sanchez, it's more of the fact that that joke perpetuates a false statistic and makes some fools actually believe it
@Dr Rick Sanchez, and the fact that, knowing your stance on other issues, I sincerely believed you actually thought that women make 70% of men's pat
@Can yew knot, pay*
@Abradolf Lincler, Who's to say you're not too?! What if I'M one of them?!
@Can yew knot, Of course differences do exist, but they are not as large as you might think.
Example: from some major meta-analyses (see Hyde, 2005- gender similarities hypothesis, which summarizes these), it was found that women and men barely differed in mathematical abilities at all. Effect sizes were really low- the highest difference in the math category was -0.14 (standard deviations), which is considered to be quite small.
Again, differences exist (spacial perception- although this can be corrected with practice- and sex drive, for example), but those related to occupation are exaggerated- mathematical abilities and leadership styles are surprisingly very similar between men and women.
@IAmALittleUpset, Yes but by math it's mostly in Geometry and other mental math (hence spatial reasoning) and women have better writing and creativity by brains. You don't even need to do meta analysis, just look at score distribution in U.S. SAT by subject and gender. Far more males than females score 800s in math, and far more females than males score 800s in writing, with slightly better in reading I think
@Can yew knot, Good point, but there is a little more to those scores than a difference in ability.
There is something called stereotype threat. Essentially, people who think about stereotypes about their groups (ex. "Women are bad at math") will often stress over disproving them, only to end up proving them under pressure. This applies to any group (Steele and Aronson, 1995, found that black students performed more poorly than white students on a test when they thought about how their intelligence was being tested, as they were for years stereotyped as being intellectually inferior. Black students who were not reminded of the stereotype were the same as white students).
Essentially, stereotype threat plays a major role. Girls taking a test, when reminded that they are girls, will likely remember the stereotype of girls being bad at math.
Also, as I briefly mentioned,spatial reasoning can improve with practice and certain activities (high-action video games, navigating an area).
@Can yew knot, @Can yew knot, Just to add, I know I can't change your opinion. I just wanted to mention that men and women are more similar than we all think. They are different, but neither one is inherently inferior (one could argue physical strength, but think of it like this- is the strongest woman weaker than the weakest man?).
@IAmALittleUpset, Yes but who tells you this when you take a college admissions tests? It's not like everyone always says, girls are worse at math. It is just what happens. On a admission test, they just tell you that it is important and that you should try. Stereotypes arn't mentions
@IAmALittleUpset, yea but, despite what PC tells us to think, there ARE clear differences between the sexes and their abilities. Avg. strength and muscle mass is always higher in a male population. Women are more creative and think more outside the box. Men get visualize object better. You get my point
@IAmALittleUpset, obviously, they are mostly the same. But behaviorally, plus with mental and physical differences? They are quite not the same
@Can yew knot, People don't always have to tell a person. It can come to mind when filling out personal information (indicating sex, writing name, etc). It can come to mind when looking at other people (noticing that you are the only woman/man/white person/etc in your immediate area). When people are primed in any way to think about their backgrounds, stereotype threat can occur. Often it is subtle.
@Can yew knot, I already acknowledged that there are differences. I just said that they are not as extreme as we think. Men and women are not different species. I know that there are hormonal and brain differences. I know that men are more muscular and more likely to be aggressive and confident (more testosterone), and I know that women tend to be more on the emotional side.
However, the differences are not pronounced enough to render women physically intellectually inferior and men emotionally inferior. Men and women have some overlap- it is possible for a woman to be stronger than a man, and it is possible for a man to be more expressive than a woman.
@IAmALittleUpset, the differences in brain structure are what matters, and those differences are real and have nothing to do with culture.
A 10 year long study by the American neurological association finished like a year ago or so.
By the 25th week of pregnancy male and female brains can be distinguished, and the sex of the fetus determined just from an MRI of the fetus' head.
There is no stereotype in he womb, that is purely nature/genetics. Those differences exist.
@talmet, I am aware of these natural differences. All I have been saying (and repeating in almost every comment) is that the differences in behaviour are not as pronounced we all might think. Men and women are different, but behaviours and intellectual abilities are not unique to either sex.
@Dr Rick Sanchez, daamnn
@IAmALittleUpset, says who? Brain structure matters, that is a real difference.
Can women be trained and after practice test as well as men in things like visualization? Yes, if the men aren't trained and not given time to practice. But if both genders are untrained, men do better. If both genders are trained, again men do better.
@IAmALittleUpset, I feel so bad for you. You have repeated your point like five times and they still don't understand. Those "natural differences" are minuscule and on average, so there are tons of girls who are naturally better at math than guys too.
@Can yew knot, who did you hear that from, ya WW2 grandfather that still gags when he sees two "fairies" in the street?
In all honesty, removing Alexander Hamilton is stupid. He was the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury; if anyone should be on our money, it's him.
@Ich bin ein Berliner, they should get rid of Jackson, he did a lot of rude things to native Americans
@Gay Rattlesnake , Yeah. The Indian Removal Act was entirely uncalled for. It only passed with only 51% of the vote in the House of Reps.
@Gay Rattlesnake , that and Jackson hated paper money. No idea why he's our $20
Can we all agree that removing Alexander Hamilton from the ten dollar bill is a travesty of epic proportions, no matter who replaces him?
@Alexander III, yup. Let's take the first secretary of the treasury off the money! YAY LOGIC!
@Cpzombie, not sure why somebody downvoted you, you make a fair point
@The Puppet Man, "tentacle monster" was just going around downvoting all my recent comments because he doesn't like me. Not sure why he doesn't just downvote comments he strongly disagrees with, but they don't really do anything anyway (or maybe he disagrees, and just doesn't like Alexander Hamilton)
@Alexander III, I think all the bills should get printed with a female version. 50/50.
That way we can breed our money with each other, and make more money.
@Cpzombie, he used to comment a long long time ago and I even tried setting up a wonderful joke for him a couple years ago but he's down voted me lately as well. I'm wondering if he has turned into a downvote troll.
@KingofFunnypics, i want to say your wrong but I'm not knowledgeable enough about economics to be sure
@Cpzombie, People usually downvote others on this app when they disagree with them. I especially do it if someone does it on a rude way like some of the other replies that you gave to people who commented on this picture. It's nothing against you personally since I've upvoted some of your posts in the past. Calling someone out like that though, is petty. We should expect better from the community that used to be really good but has been declining recently.
@Bonersaurus, No, I'm not a downvote troll. I'm just not afraid to downvote a post if I do not like it or if I do not agree with it. That's basically why the downvote button exists. It's a system that shows that what you are saying has a lot, a little, or mixed support. If you do not like a post of mine then please downvote it so that I know that people do not like what I am saying. People today seem to be afraid to downvote now that people can look up who downvoted them and call them out, but you won't get that from me.
@Tentacle Monster, ok good. It's just one time I looked at your activity and it was like nothing but down votes.
@Tentacle Monster, I was answering the question. I just assumed it was that you didn't like me, because I don't see how you could disagree with what I said in this post
My philosophy is that if you want to remove a male off money for no reason other than to add a woman.....fine.....just make sure it's a woman with as much historical significance and achievement as said male.
I say that Scarlett Johansson should be on the $10 bill.
"I'm really looking forward to these new women on tens bills change" - said no one every
Do people actually care who's on the dollar?
I bet she got it stripping anyway.
"Honey why is your wallet filled exclusively with $10 bills?"
"Uh no reason…"
