To Nick’s credit, self-selection into traditionally female careers is an established sociological factor in the gender pay gap. Nursing might not be the best example anymore, because it does tend to pay more than the median household income. Teaching is better, as it is predominantly female and (most people agree) under-payed. Better yet, though are service sector jobs, particularly domestic ones (cleaning, childcare) that are overwhelmingly female and pay poorly.

That being said, there are a whole host of other issues contributing to the pay gap like the interruption of careers for childbirth and socialization factors that can lead women to be more timid in salary negotiations. It would be hard to say there is a “biggest reason” for gender inequality.

I think this might be a reference (joke?) to the spoken word part near the end of “Come Down to Us”

God, how can you not vote for a guy who is ballsy enough to eat at Chipotle the same day as a nationally-television debate? Anus of steel.

All of this just makes me hungry. Hungry and all-around sad about American political discourse.

no, because Die Anteword is (1) nothing like this and (2) already white trash, lo-fi, and ironic.

I always get Edie Sedgwick and the Edies from Grey Gardens confused. This is a problem only upper-middle class white people have.
