"I get paid better than most men in my field. I'm not, maybe, the most pc about this topic, but you have to be competing in something or doing something that has a demand.

So if somebody is doing the same job in the workplace and there's nothing outside of it other than pure performance, it should be equal, I get that.
"But let's say it's a sport that's on TV that gets millions and millions of viewers vs another sport that's on TV that doesn't, the money is coming from TV. It's coming from sponsorship.

There are all kinds of different ways to look at it, but, for me, it's about being unique and different and having a consumable product."
