The fundamental difference between progressivess and conservatives is that when progressives see "a problem" they think they understand the problem and can fix it. For example, here’s Matthew Yglesias concluding that a "gender pay gap" exists because a study that controlled for college majors has found that, within majors, women earn less right out of college.

DC is filled with women who come here right after college and want to work for various non-profits. In the last month, three women in their mid-to-late-twenties have told me that they moved here to "work in sustainability." No man has ever said something that stupid to me.
