UK pub charges 18% "man tax"

Basically, in the UK the supposed "gender wage gap" is at 18%, so a pub in the UK decided to add an additional 18% "man tax" for drinks to their male customers as a way to "make up the inequality". If I were a customer at this place and was told that, I would've splashed the drink straight into the bartender's face and walked out. I’m sorry, but even if the gender wage gap myth were true, two wrongs don’t make a right.

I also find it sickeningly sad how the feminist commenters in that video are actually enjoying the reactions of the men who are legitimately upset by this video. It only confirms to me that they really do care only about revenge rather than equality. At least I know who the real sexists are.

"Raising awareness"... yeah, with MORE sexism. They expect society to take them seriously whenever THEIR feelings are hurt, but whenever MEN feel hurt, they find it funny and entertaining... Fuckin' bitches. I hope that pub gets sued.

That was a rather petty attempt to address the so-called gender wage gap. I hope this throws egg on their face rather than this catching on. Do any of these customers who support the message being relayed even bother to verify the accusations?

Also, what the fuck is the lady doing with drinking out of people's cups and taking food off of people's plates? This is begging for a lawsuit. Not just that but they didn't even edit that out...

Sounds like any lady's night you'd find in clubs where drinks are half off and men pay full price. Went to those plenty of times. Had no problem paying full price but, just didn't drink very much. Was there for the pussy really. Let me tell you, there was always pussy.

Of course what this place is doing is fucked up and what I described is an orange but, unless it doesn't make a profit and people still keep going there, it won't change. 

The other thing that needs to be pointed out is that no matter what now a days, wrong is a matter of perspective and there really isn't a point in debating it.

Especially if it's something against what someone thinks.

Its just an excuse to charge more.

The pub should be out of business within a year, two at the most.

Its so stupid to disrespect half the human race and in this case its likely more.

I have left doctors and dentists just on there attitude alone.

I know I can get political here but if I owned a business it would be so stupid to get into politics and religion, I might gain some fans however I would loose much more.

Franchises like Chick-fil-A, and Papa Johns learned the hard way.

I honestly can't say I'm suprised.

Most feminist aim for superiority rather than equality from what I've seen.

As far as talking about the wage gap, in my personal experience a lot of blue collar women I worked with were on par or made more than their male counterparts at these jobs. The wadge gap only effects women who work in higher paying jobs ($25 hour or more.) From what I understand about office jobs and etc.

The issue here is the fact that a lot of women aruge "he makes more than me because I'm female" but doesn't take experience and past work into account.

Now on the issue of the pub, if I was told that I would of laughed and walked right out to a different bar. Its obvious most of the women there are lesbians anyway.

It would make sense (and be commonplace) if the bar offered an 18% discount for female patrons, not because of the gender wage gap, but simply because it's desirable to incentivize women to come to bars. Women are less likely to frequent bars than men are, and since a bar known to have women is more likely to attract men, it's a win for all parties. From a business standpoint charging men more is ass backwards, and the ridiculousness from a socio-political perspective speaks for itself.
