Fox & Friends Explores 'Gender Myths' Like Equal Pay, Title IX

Apparently, women are only paid less because they "have their priorities in order" -- and it's a myth that Title IX allowed more women to play college sports.

These nuggets were declared as "truths" by Fox anchor Steve Doocy and Fox Business anchor John Stossel, who took part in an August 8th Fox & Friends segment.

Stossel claimed that women earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by a man because "women have their priorities in order. They often choose jobs that are less time-consuming, not so far away, and not as dangerous." The pair also agreed that Title IX didn't actually allow college women to play sports -- apparently, the change would have happened anyway. (This despite plenty of evidence that directly contradicts their claims.)

These gender experts also claimed that more men want to play sports than women, and laughed about how women are "clearly" worse drivers because they "can't maneuver well." Thanks for the knowledge, dudes.
