There are so many crazy things about what they've done none more so than the fact that men had no advantage in the game. It didn't designate that a man be the banker. It didn't designate that a woman had to use the thimble and the man had to use the racecar. The game has nothing to do with gender.
Hasbro's new game does discriminate based on gender. Men are given less money for passing "Go," than women. It's nuts! If I were forced to play Ms. Monopoly at a party, I know what I'd do to become competitive; for that game only, I would identify as being a woman. :) The left are losing their minds. Common sense and logic have been thrown out the window to where only hysteria remains.
By the way, not a single Democrat in the last few years has introduced major legislation for equal pay beyond that which was already in place in 1963. The Lily Ledbetter Act signed by President Obama did nothing but extend the amount of time where a woman could sue a company for pay discrimination. It was all about optics, not about real substance.
Democrats talk about equal pay when trying to fire up their base, but they don't do anything about it. Why? Because there's no possible way to write legislation to where it could pass, regardless of the political party. There would be a handful of "yes," votes. They don't have systemic evidence that there's a conspiracy against women to pay them less for the same job. They can't substantiate creating a whole new government department to audit all the businesses in our country, to make sure everyone is being paid fairly. Last but not least, if a woman believes she is being taken advantage of, she can get her day in court because that option is already available. So what else is there to do?
Even with the above truths in mind, some Democrats still bring up the need for an equal pay act because they say women are being discriminated against. They use the issue to demonize Republicans as if they want men to be paid more. It's ludicrous. Where's the evidence of pay discrimination? If there was enough evidence, an equal pay act would easily pass the House and Senate. The bottom line is some people don't truly care about the truth, it's just an obstacle to overcome in propagating their liberal ideology.
