One more thing: if a woman has a high paying job [many do now, you know] and has a baby — guess what? She gets benefits to stay home and care for the baby, AND she has a big savings account to shield her.

This is 2017 and, while things aren’t even near equal for men and women, some women, especially white women, are doing better than uneducated men are doing. White women benefit from privilege associated with skin color, and so we need to think about intersectional feminism and systemic racism: but that’s an advanced topic, too complicated for the likes of you.
