People love to hold statistics in the highest regard and consider them to be the word of god. The problem with statistics is they need to be analyzed and put into context. This is especially true when examining the wage gap between sexes.
As has been pointed out many times before the fact women, on average, earn 78 cents for every dollar men make is not a sign women are being discriminated against in the work place. If this were true, we’d see a whole lot more employers hiring women over men for their “affordability”. What this statistic shows instead is that women may on average lack the same credentials, work ethic, and time spent at the workplace as men do. The modern day Salem witch trial is a perfect example of this.
A psychic witch priestess by the name of Lori Bruno took world-renowned warlock Christian Day to court for harassment and won a protective order against him in Salem yesterday. Supposedly, Day had been harassing her on Facebook and placing rude late-night phone calls to her for the past three years. The two were once business partners and acted like a mother-son team, until Bruno decided to start her own business. That’s when the relationship soured and Day decided to take vengeance.
When witches seek revenge they usually cast spells or hexes on their targets. But as many of you may know, that shit doesn’t work all the time. And when it doesn’t, sitting on your hands and doing nothing about it doesn’t help matters. That’s the problem with witchcraft. It’s an industry filled with lazy women who are satisfied with unsatisfactory results. Christian Day is a man and he wasn’t getting the results he wanted but instead of being a lazy little bitch and settling for nothing, he stayed at it till he got what he wanted and no one seems to care. It’s not just that he isn’t being commended for not being a lazy witch, he’s being punished for thinking outside the box.
Day’s harassment of Lori Bruno is proof of how much better men can do women’s jobs. Those in the sorcery community are known for their unorthodox methods. But that doesn’t mean they should limit themselves to casting spells when tormenting another soul. If you really want someone to feel your wrath, you should use every weapon at your disposal. Christian Day wasn’t satisfied with only putting a curse or casting a spell on Bruno, he wanted her to experience hell on earth. So, being the truly evil and innovative being that he is, he made some Facebook posts and prank phone-called her. The fact the Salem courts upheld Bruno’s request for a protective order just shows how much help women need to compete on the same level as men.
It’s fun to interpret stats incorrectly or manipulate them in order to fit your agenda. They need to be analyzed and put in context if they’re to be used correctly, though. Women may earn less than men on average but there are plenty of reasons for it. If you look at the witchcraft industry, which has been dominated by women for years, you’ll notice all of the innovators are men and there’s a reason for that: work ethic.
