Have you ever played a carnival game?
Chances are, you lost. That's because the carnival rigged the games. The basketball hoop is oval-shaped, not round. So the basketball barely fits. The balloons are hard to pop because they're deflated. The rings in the ring toss are slightly larger than the bottles.
However, it only cost you a few dollars, and you had fun with friends.
What if the stakes were higher? What if you lost hundreds, thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars? You'd be upset. You'd call the game unfair. You'd file a complaint and get your money back.
There are plenty of situations in the real world where people in power manipulate the rules, especially against women in the workforce.
Once you see the trick, you can't unsee it.
Thanks for caring!
