the gender pay gap (the average salary paid to women against the average salary paid to men)
is caused because some women leave employment or take a long career beak to look after a family
The only solution to that is to encourage an equal number of men to leave employment/take a long career break to look after the family
nothing else works (or is a fair solution)

He seemed to waffle an aweful lot without actually saying much. I'd like to know what he thinks about some of the weird shit they come up with here. I mean they set up special course so that some women get promote d so we have this athena swan group and that looks only at women, then we h ave our equality committee and the head of that told me that they are fight ing for womens rights.

Just OOI, how does that compare with waffling an awful lot without saying much that is actually comprehendible?
Was your degree in 'Barking up the wrong tree' and with the ball in your court, make sure you don't bite off more than you can chew so make sure it cut's the mustard.

Well, one would assume it should be comprehendible by you because you said it (no guarantees of course) and so by me / anyone?

Long words are more impressive when they're correctly spelled.

I wonder if comprehendible is in the same state of development as 'irregardless'? In other words, it is so widely used by relatively new, or ex-colonial, English speakers who do not know the word 'comprehensible' that it is in at least the New World dictionaries, but it still sounds wrong to more widely read English speakers.

On the contrary, it is my mother tongue, 'T i m'.

The frequency of use of 'comprehenDible' as compared with 'comprehenSible' is instructive, 'T i m'.
By the way, please excuse me for imitating your use of scare quotes around my current persona's name; I dislike descent to puerile ad hominem abuse, I will try to do better next time.

Thank you, Roger, I couldn't have put it better myself.

Neither is 'comprehendible'; but both are in recent editions of American dictionaries. 'Inspirational' is not a word either, but has become nearly universal even in the UK.

'Think'?

Because I did! I hope that annoys and offends you even more (and I think it does). ;-)
The best thing about using modern words is that it winds the left brained dinosaurs and self appointed spelling / grammar cops up (in a d-i-y group ffs)!
