Still not getting equal pay for equal work? If your boss can't wrap his head around gender equality, here's a shortcut to enlightenment: "Let's pretend I have a penis on payday!" The "Let's pretend I have a penis on payday!" mug is perfect for your morning cup of coffee at home or at the office, if you're feeling bold.

I thought this up while writing about Equal Pay Day, which President Obama declared a national holiday in 2016. It falls each year on the Tuesday in April that most closely represents how far into the next year the average woman must work to earn what the average man earned in the previous calendar year. (In 2016, it fell on April 12. In 2018, it fell on April 10. So, progress?)

This mug is sturdy and glossy with a vivid print that'll withstand the microwave and dishwasher. Which is good because, at this rate, this design's going to stay topical for a long, long time.

Mug specs:
• Ceramic
• Dishwasher and microwave safe
• White and glossy

This is the second item I've bought from this shop, and I already have my eyes on a third! This pin is even cuter in person - it's small enough to fit on a face mask (where I have mine as you can see in the pic), but big enough to be read easily. I also bought her "Uninstalling Trump" pin, which is perhaps twice as big as this one, about three months ago. I wear it every time I leave the house. (Admittedly, that's not very often, but it's still stood up well, getting pulled on by purse straps, dogs, being taken on and off, etc.) I expect this one to stand up at least as well. As far as shipping, she ships *so* fast that I was shocked when this arrived only a few days after I bought it, thinking I hadn't ordered anything that'd be coming now! In short, I *highly* recommend buying your #Resist gear here. You shan't regret it!

Love this mug!!! 💕 Not only is it beautifully printed, but… I love that there’s something written on BOTH sides (so many mugs these days only print on one)… And I love that it’s microwave and dishwasher safe… (I have a “similar” mug I have to hand wash) And finally, it’s BIG! Perfect size for my morning coffee. Because Justice Matters …and so does coffee 😏 Thanks for this!! Exceptional Etsy vendor!!

FREE SHIPPING!!! Great quality shirts!!! Love the design!! Owner of this shop is incredibly kind. When the shirts delivery got delayed through no fault of hers she immediately reached out and was very apologetic and understanding. Shipment was prompt and as described. I would definitely buy from Fightingwordsdesigns again and plan to do so. If I could give 6 stars I would but 5 stars all the way. Above and beyond!!😁

I love these magnets! Go one for me, one for my sister-in-law, and maybe the 3rd for my sister or niece. They are high-quality and they look Just like the photo here. I also like the fact that they are very thin, so you can easily add it to a card or letter! ❤️❤️
