Don’t provoke the virtue signallers. :-)

But, in all seriousness, when I first saw the normalized analyses that refuted the “79% of men” nonsense (I think the first normalized analyses I saw put women at 97% of men) the first thing that came to mind was that we should all know when to push away from the table and declare victory.

After the gender wage issues of the past, the fact that we were able to get to 97% — 98% without any legislation that unnaturally forced the issue from an economic standpoint is a victory for the free market for labor and wage, and a major proof point to bolster the conservative view that if you just leave problems like this alone for long enough, they’ll fix themselves.
