Nine months after Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer gave birth, she is extending Yahoo's parental leave policy. Both new mothers and fathers at Yahoo can now take eight weeks of paid parental leave, and the mothers can take an additional eight weeks. What's more, new parents will also receive $500 to buy items like groceries and baby clothes.How, one wonders, can such an openly discriminatory corporate policy possibly be rationally defended in a world that denies sexual differences? Through the Female Imperative, of course. It is more generous, but every bit as unequal as the previous policy that gave women eight weeks of paid maternity leave and men nothing. So the end result is that the policy is still unequal, but considerably more expensive across the board.
This is why all female appeals to "equality" should be rejected out of hand. What they mean by "equality" has absolutely nothing to do with the equal treatment of two individuals. It is merely a rhetorical device utilized as a political weapon.
