Woman Perfectly Explains Why Equal Pay Makes 'No Sense' In Spot On Satire Video

Eva Victor broke the internet last month after releasing a hilarious satirical video of a woman explaining to her boyfriend why a straight pride parade is totally necessary.

Now, she's done it again, this time explaining why equal pay for the US Women's National Soccer Team (USWNT) is a bad idea.

With the USWNT winning the World Cup this past weekend, many were outraged to learn that the team—which now holds four World Cup championships—will only earn $30 million.

While that may seem like a grand sum, it's dwarfed by the $400 million prize awarded to the men's team, which hasn't ever won a World Cup. It came the closest in 1938, when the team made the semi-finals.

Though hundreds of people quite literally called for equal pay for the women's team—including Snoop Dogg in a now viral video, Eva Victor had some side-splitting reasons for why that's a bad idea.

Some of the rebuttals include:

"Basically, if we pay women and men the same amount, then we're gonna have a crisis on our hands. It's gonna be that women actually think that they are equal to men. Do you see the problem here?"
"Basically, it's sexist towards men for women to not deal with sexism. Boom, boom, boom. I'm writing a book."
"So basically a woman kicks a ball and that's a 'woman's sport,' and when a man kicks a ball, that's a sport."
The internet couldn't get enough of Victor's satire.

Some claimed that the disparity was because the men's team generates more revenue.

This was despite the women's team exceeding the revenue generated by the men's team in 2015 and remaining the larger revenue generator.

Earlier this year, the team sued US Soccer to correct the pay gap.

Parenting adolescent children can be challenging.

Stakes are high for teens going through many physical and emotional changes, and being reprimanded is the last thing they need whenever they feel like the weight of the world is closing in on them.

This is true of any child, whether they are biological or adoptive.

One father tried to diffuse tension with his adopted 15-year-old daughter with an egregious dad joke, and it backfired big time.

So the father took to a subreddit thread to ask readers if he is the a*****e for his retort to his rebellious daughter.

History seems like a pretty boring subject to many people, but that's really not the case. The many stories of one-upmanship, backstabbing, and sweet revenge are just part of what makes history so interesting.
