Through the ages men and women have been paid radically different for the same jobs. Is removing the gender from a job going to equal the pay? I doubt it.
Historically men were the bread-winners and were paid accordingly. Women were significantly thrust into the job market during WWII but were returned home after the soldiers returned. The number of women in the workforce in the 50's was still small. It began to grow in the 60's and boom by the 70's. By the 80's there were as many women in the workforce as men. By the 90's the women outnumbered the men.
Today there are many stay-at-home dads who have chosen to raise the kids while the mom brings home the bacon.
This is just another situation where the tables are turned and instead of handling it in a positive way, they've decided to slap labels on it called it Politically Correct. There is nothing politically correct about it. The fact that they made jobs gender-specific to begin with was just wrong.
So if they hadn't been so biased to start with, they wouldn't be correcting this now; politically or otherwise.
