I took a class that focused partly on salary negotiation. You want to get paid? Rule number 1 is be informed. That's why i can't get behind this whole"mind your business" thing. It takes you no where and makes your salary negotiation tactic suffer. Negotiate both hard and soft benefits.

For me, the choices I make on an individual level are far more important to my activism. So it's not strange at all to me to say that certain things aren't worth it because no one has unlimited energy.


I agree with this. But this woman placed importance on this issue in her life, that's why its kind of pointless to try to govern what others do like modeless is attempting with her first post. I think there would be a different reaction if she said, "i personally put more importance on things other than salary."

I got to chime in here, too. 

Accepting the "status quo" that women get paid less because "that's the way things are" or that we "should mind our own biz" is borders on mental "laziness".  Why should I accept injustice just because its too hard for me to change things?  Mentality like that will keep you always in last place in the race of life....

I want to finish first.

Excuses. Excuses.
Back in the day they used to say, "The man has a family to support. That's why he's paid more."
But, with the advent of divorce, that sweet little lie no longer held up.
My favorite is the egalitarian lie: "It's knowledge, skills and ability that we look to. Nothing else."
Another lie that ran out of steam when experienced women continued to fall under par for male salaries.
Ah white males...the brand that just won't quit fuc*ing the masses.
Heart attacks to you all.
