Rush to judgement

A few weeks ago, I wrote a fairly well received rant about how America tends to act like sexism doesn't exist and doesn't have any effects whatsoever on how America operates. Today's rush to judgement is another example of how sexism is being looked over and ignored despite having very real consequences. The particular consequences in this example is that women make 23% less on average than a man who does the same job. Of course none of this matters to Rush Limbaugh who has made a living off of saying sexist things and then pretending that sexism doesn't really exist. Click, listen and be amazed.
