Two Feminist Senators Demand Investigation Into Pay Disparity between WNBA and NBA

U.S. Feminist Senators Jacky Rosen and Amy Klobuchar sent a letter to the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation demanding he hold a hearing about pay disparity between men's and women's sports in the United States. 

In the letter, the Senators state:
"The gender pay gap is not limited to soccer—it spans many sports in the United States. In 2017, the U.S. Women’s Hockey Team threatened to boycott the 2018 Winter Olympics over inadequate pay and support. The players were reportedly provided $1,000 per month during the six-month Olympic residency period and very little else throughout the four years between Olympic Games. Last year in the Women's National Basketball Association, the maximum veteran player salary was $115,500, while the men in the National Basketball Association earned a minimum salary of $582,180. Despite four Grand Slam tennis tournaments in which men and women players are compensated equally, women tennis players are only earning 80 cents on each dollar that men earn in other matches. Although the Ladies Professional Golf Association this year will distribute a record of roughly $70 million in prize money, this is only close to one-fifth what the men will receive from the Professional Golf Association Tour. "

 The feminists politicians completely ignored the fact that neither the US women's World Cup nor USA hockey creates equal revenue with their male counter parts. The idea that WNBA players should be paid the same as their male counterparts is completely asinine. According to a Forbes, NBA's 30 teams made $7.4 billion in 2017. According to Adam Grosbard of the Dallas Morning News,, the league's 12 teams made at about $51.5 million in 2017.  No recent figures are available for golf. However, in 2013, the last year in which both golf organization's tax documents are available, the PGA Tour Inc. brought in $1.075 billion while the LPGA earned $102.8 million in total revenue,
The feminist politicians deemed generated revenue as irrelevant. They believed that female athletes should not have to create the same revenue as men in order to be paid the same wages as men.  What Rosen and Klobuchar are advocating is that female athletes be paid simply for being women. Thats outright sexism. It is female privilege.
Every time feminists gain power, they seek female privilege.  Jacky Rosen and Amy Klobuchar help create and modify both Federal and state laws   They are examples of why voting is so important. Senators  Rosen and Klobuchar contention that wages should be based on gender rather than generated revenue is pure sexism.

USA Soccer's Alex Morgan Asks For Female Privilege

United States women's national soccer team player Alex Morgan was criticized for mocking Britain when she sipped tea after scoring a goal during the Women's World Cup.

Morgan responded by stating:
"There is some sort of double standard for females in sports to feel like we have to be humble in our successes and have to celebrate but not too much and have to do something, but it always needs to be a limited fashion," she said. "You see men celebrate all over the world in big tournaments, you know, grabbing their sacks or whatever it is."
"When I look at sipping a cup of tea, I'm a little taken aback and kind of laugh about it to see all the criticism," she continued. "So I"m a little disappointed about that.”
When male players act unsportsmanlike they are often criticized. Alex Morgan is asking for special privileges simply because she is a women.  The double standard is all hers. Morgan's actions were arrogant. She mocked the British culture. This is exactly why much of the world hates this team.

The article also displays an entrenched sexist culture within USAToday. The news organization was outraged that anyone would criticize a female athlete. Yet USAToday has no problem criticizing male athletes. They often criticize NFL player Odell Beckham . In this article, USAToday list a host of criticisms against him. They also criticize many other male athletes for an array of reasons in the NFL, NHL MLB and NBA. However, the sexists journalists of USAToday are angered that the same standards of conduct are now being applied to female athletes. 

Similar to  Morgan, USAToday is demanding female privilege.
