The True Feminist Message: Don't Hire Women

Hello, Western employers!

As you may have noticed, today's feminist activists have a great deal to say about how women are and should be treated in the workforce. And yes, I understand how difficult it can be to sift through their rhetoric and tease out exactly what you, as an employer, are expected to do. Fortunately, I think I've finally managed to figure out their underlying message: Don't hire women.

I know how bizarre this must seem. After all, feminists claim to be looking out for women's best interests. And yet, in presuming to speak for all of us, these activists have managed to paint our distaff sex in a very unappealing light. Indeed, if feminists are to be accepted as our spokeswomen and exemplars, the following must be true:

Women don't understand math or science.

They don't comprehend, for example, that you can lie with statistics. Certain numbers - such as the earnings gap - can be explained by phenomena that aren't nefarious, but women are simply incapable of analyzing said statistics in a critical manner. Additionally, women can't tell the difference between science and scientism. They conclude that because, for instance, so-called scientists once claimed that hysteria and neuroses could be cured by giving a woman a good poke, the entire scientific enterprise is a sexist joke. But of course, it was the process of science that eventually disabused us of these ideas -- and a lot of other pseudoscientific, bigoted nonsense besides. In reality, if science stays liberal (in the classical sense), the truth will win out -- and the truth can't be sexist; on the other hand, if you mix politics with your science, you get Lysenkoism and the eugenics movement.

In general, women just don't have the brainpower to learn math and science as they are traditionally taught. In fact, in order for women to overcome their marginalized status in the STEM fields, we have to deemphasize efficient algorithms and computational fluency in our math classes and, hell, even reinvent quantum physics in order for these subjects to be more assimilable for the inferior female mind.

Women are uneducable -- especially by men.

You may have men at your workplace who have a strong grasp of your field thanks to a rigorous education and years of experience, but women will dismiss them as patriarchal "mansplainers" and refuse to accept them as knowledgeable mentors. Women, you see, are so brittle that they can't handle being contradicted. If their "lived experience" has convinced them that something is true, no amount of logic or factual argument will persuade them that they are mistaken; after all, they are women and must be believed.

Women expect to advance in their chosen profession regardless of the quality of their work.

Further, they expect highly qualified men to "get out of the way" to allow that advancement. As far as women are concerned, men dominate in positions of institutional power and prestige because they are privileged -- not because they've studied useful subjects, made conscious sacrifices in their personal lives to leave room for 60+ hour work weeks, accepted discomfort and danger on the job, or just been the best at what they do. And because women believe that men have not earned their place, they've therefore concluded that women must be preferentially considered in all hiring and promotion decisions in order to balance the scales. Some women will even go so far as to insist that men currently in power be demoted to allow for the elevation of female competitors.

Women will be unable to work several days out of every month.

Men come to work when they are sick. Men will even ignore dangerous foot infections to stand post during several consecutive overnight shifts if they happen to be supervising important military operations overseas. (Ahem. I'm looking at you, Dad.) But women are too weak to do that. Women are so physically fragile, in fact, that they can't even be productive during their periods. Yes, that's right: the pain of menstruation, a standard and healthy bodily function, is so crippling that women can't be expected to show up while they're on their cycle and need mandated paid period leave once a month to be happy.

(Don't get me wrong here: I understand that some women do experience extreme symptoms while on their periods. But these are disorders; they should be addressed by gynecologists, not accepted as something normal that necessitates special accommodations.) 

Women will complain about trivial inconveniences and will expect your workplace to constantly cater to their desires.

Have you heard that even an employer's air conditioning can be sexist? If you don't turn up your thermostat and force the men in your office to sweat, you are guilty of marginalizing women. Sorry, fellas: It's just too hard for women to bring their sweaters. You may think that is, in fact, a perfectly reasonable solution given that being too cold is easier to fix (with the aforementioned sweaters) than being too damned hot. But women, ultimately, don't feel they should have to take responsibility for their own comfort; the office world must, at all times, revolve around them

*****

Okay: So we all know that none of the above statements are actually true of all women. Most women want to live by the same exact rules that govern men and don't want to be treated as delicate, wilting flowers -- either in the workplace or anywhere else. And that's why, as of this moment, only a small percentage of Western women are actually willing to embrace the feminist label. They understand what feminists are really implying -- and they rightfully resent it.

  1. Why would I hire someone who will sue me for anything that isn't "woke?" I'm trying to build a business, not becomes a charity.

  2. If I truly could pay women 78% of what I pay men & get the same level of productivity, I'd never hire another man. #ScroogeMcDuck

  3. And don't marry them either. A full half of young women are making themselves completely unmarriageable by looking at every turn for how they can see themselves as victims who are owed redress by some perpetrator, and of course it is ALWAYS possible to find some way to see yourself as a victim, but marriage depends on the spouses being giving helpmates, not users or enemies seeking advantage by looking for ways to claim victimization and redress. The boys know what these girls are from their many years in school together, with the girls constantly taught to see themselves as victims and empowered to seek recompense. They will not marry these girls. They know what a death sentence that would be. Men, and even boys, on strike.

    1. Good points. I may address the relationship angle in another post, in fact.

    2. "A full half o you women are making themselves completely unmarriageable..." A "full half"? Where does that percentage come from?

    3. Most of these boys get their opinion about women from their mothers. The mother sets the archetype for her gender for her sons. Other women either reinforce the definition she's set, or show that there are exceptions to the norm she's established.

      If mom walks out on the family due to feelz, and then several friends' and siblings' friends' mothers due the same--it becomes a pretty concrete definition that is almost impossible to overcome. It is these young mens' expectation.

      Same happens for girls- Dad sets the archetype. The definition of what men are, and what they should expect in a relationship.

  4. If you don't turn up your thermostat and force the men in your office to sweat, you are guilty of marginalizing women.

    You've obviously never worked in HVAC operations. It's a well known fact in the field that if there is more then one woman in an office, it is impossible to establish a temperature that will suit all of them.

    1. Boy, isn't that the truth. We finally had to put a lock on the thermostat.

    2. True. For example, I actually prefer more air conditioning rather than less. Heat and I do NOT get along. Yet another reason why I found women complaining about being cold at work because of "patriarchy" so unbelievably silly.

      Delete
    3. Yep.

      There is a range of preferred temperature, but the women in my former workplace were UNBELIEVABLY prissy about their preferred workplace climate, with about 90% of them preferring a temperature far warmer than what I would prefer and notably warmer than room temperature (72 F...not 76, not 78, ladies).

      The battle over whether to set the thermostat at 74, 76, 78...whether we would turn the AC on when it was slightly too warm, even if it was cooler outside (our windows didn't open) and who sat where relative to the air vents was RIDICULOUS. And it was the men that suffered, because most of them wanted between 68 and 74, not 74-78.

  5. When I first saw this bit, I thought it was comedy. Feminists have persuaded me that it might be entirely accurate.

  6. "on the other hand, if you mix politics with your science, you get Lysenkoism and the eugenics movement."

    This is not correct. Eugenics isn't politicised science. It is science divorced from morality. There is nothing pseudoscientific or unscientific about artificial selection. It it just morally hideous on humans

    1. I would draw a line. Artificial selection is selectively breeding for traits. Eugenics is "proving" that YOUR traits are superior, and OTHER traits must be eliminated.

      And while it starts with eliminating them through selective breeding, it can end with the ovens.

    2. Yes, what Martin said. Eugenics is inextricably tied to bogus race science. Hence why I included it as an example of a pseudoscience.

      However, science divorced from morality is certainly a problem too.

    3. Eugenics ties selective breeding to a better or superior progeny. Evolution doesnt any concept of better or superior. What survives is fittest, not better. If the fat stupid and loathsome can kill or outbreed the beautiful smart and loveable then they are the fittest although by no means better or superior.

    4. I suspect *anything* divorced from morality is a problem.

  7. A few years back, I worked in an office with a bunch of women. One of them, and this is no joke, threatened to get a lawyer and make an EEOC claim because some scumbag there only talked to the hot women, and never talked to her, and she felt marginalized and a victim of prejudice over her looks and weight. Again, I wish I was kidding.

  8. We should be glad when women voluntarily quit and leave you in a lurch. Don't replace her with another woman.

  10. I've seen the analyses showing that when you compare apples with apples, women are earning just about the same amount that men are. The 30¢ per hour discrepancy is due to different life choices.

    I suspect the choice of buying in to modern feminism and all of the things it implies may be what's bringing the average down.
