Why hire women at all?

with 57 comments

In this story, the Congressman in question:

Did not have sex with any staffers
Did not inappropriately touch any staffers
Did not ask any staffers to have sex with him, at least not directly, and I honestly don’t think it’s what he meant
Did not threaten any staffers with career consequences or any consequences at all

But somehow he has still done something wrong.

Seems to me like you are better off only hiring men. Then you don’t have to worry that you might accidentally say the wrong thing and get sued and have to resign from Congress.

Because you can hire them for less.

A friend once told me about a clever solo practitioner atty/accountant, one of those Orthodox Jewish high IQ autistic men, who hired only highly intelligent, obese women. He figured correctly that they would be excellent, loyal employees, because they could not stand the humiliation of job interviews, and would be forever pathetically grateful.

I don’t believe that women can actually be hired for less, not women who can do the same quality work as a man.

Except maybe for the older ugly women. In fact, hiring ugly people of both sexes is probably a good hiring strategy, because ugly people are discriminated against so you can pick them up for less money and they will be more loyal employees.

On the other hand, pretty young women are the WORST type of employees to have.

You shouldn’t enjoy watching men get persecuted and purged because they belong to the other, equally stupid political party. Don’t be a cuck and put your own interests above those of the party you happen to vote for.

This purge only applies to men in politics and media/entertainment. It has nothing to do with regular cubicle workers who have already had these rules applied to them for a long time.

Gay genes found!

with 71 comments

https://www.newscientist.com/article/2155810-what-do-the-new-gay-genes-tell-us-about-sexual-orientation/

To this, as an HBD blogger, I say duh! But strangely, every time the topic comes up, there are commenters who insist that gayness isn’t genetic.

I’ve also previously written that there must be some sort of benefit from gay genes that outweigh the obvious survival disadvantage of not being interested in sex with women, otherwise the genes would have be culled out of the gene pool long ago. For example, gays dominate in certain activities (such as theater), and I assume the gay genes make them better at those activities.

Gay men and opportunity

with 83 comments

I suspect this is a lot more common than let on by the mainstream media. Milo said it was common (and the reason he became persona non grata is because he supported it).

Society has structures to prevent adult men from getting in contact with young girls, and young girls are warned by their mothers to be extremely cautious of being alone with adult men. But there has been naïveté with respect to gay men. It’s assumed that boys are more capable of handling themselves than girls, and that if a man is interacting with a boy he is doing so in a fatherly mentoring sort of role and it’s not perceived with the same suspicion as a man interacting with a girl.

Therefore, it’s a lot easier for a gay man to get with a boy than it is for a heterosexual man to get with a girl.

* * *

Also, the media has been protecting gay men by not reporting on this, because they don’t want to cause prejudice against gays. The only exception is gay priests, because mainstream media dislike of religion trumps their protection of gays. But if this behavior is widespread among Catholic priests, who presumably have a higher code of morals than non-religious gay men, it only makes sense that this would be even more widespread among gays outside of the Catholic church.

James Levine, gay conductor of the Metropolitan Opera, and 15-year-old boy

with 39 comments

https://nypost.com/2017/12/02/legendary-opera-conductor-molested-teen-for-years-police-report/

Legendary Metropolitan Opera conductor James Levine molested an Illinois teenager from the time he was 15 years old, sexual abuse that lasted for years and led the alleged victim to the brink of suicide, according to a police report obtained by The Post.

This is probably a lot more common with gay men than we have been let on by the gaystream media. Milo said it was common.

Comment about Glenn Thrush

with 79 comments

Here’s another comment from “fortaleza84”:

If you are a man who attains some degree of status and power, suddenly girls start treating you very differently. They are eager to spend time with you; if you meet them for a cup of coffee, they don’t come late, they don’t flake at the last minute for some ridiculous reason; they don’t take cell phone calls while you are together; and they dress nicely for you. Perhaps most importantly, they are interested in learning about you.

If you are a man in this situation, what are you supposed to do? Normally when a girl acts this way towards you, it’s an indication that she is very much sexually interested. If a girl acts towards you as if she is sexually interested, and you are interested in her, the naturally thing is to make a sexual advance and see what happens. But unfortunately, just about any sexual advance can be spun as sexual harassment if it turns out to have been unwelcome.

And a lot of these girls have no interest in having sexual relations or a sexual relationship with the men in question, they are just hoping — consciously or subconsciously — that the man will do nice things for them simply because they deign to pay attention to him. But then again, some of them probably really do want to take things further.

So if you are a man with status and power, the only way to be safe is to refrain from hitting on any girls in connection with work and to avoid any situation which could be spun as sexual harassment.

The situation involving Thrush is instructive. One of the girls who accused him was with him at an informal gathering of journalists at a bar. She said right in the article that he was the sort of person who would be good to know. The gathering broke up and dwindled down to the two of them, sitting alone in a booth together. Thrush allegedly put his hand on her bare leg (apparently wearing a miniskirt) and tried to kiss her. She rebuffed his advance, pushed past him, and left.

The first point of the story is that this girl could have easily left with the other guests but instead lingered with Thrush; she was dressed at least somewhat provocatively. It seems pretty clear that she wanted to make use of his status and connections and was at least interested in paying him special attention to get what she wanted. Second, she had to have known that any man in that situation would see her actions as a green light to make a pass at her. Third, he in fact did make a pass at her but it was pretty mild and evidently he desisted once it became clear his advances were unwelcome. But even given all this, she still perceived his conduct as inappropriate.

Like I said above, the only safe thing for Thrush to have done would have been to refrain from hitting on this girl and give up the possibility of a sexual relationship with her. As I said, to be super-cautious.

Addressing the specific question of “If you are a man in this situation, what are you supposed to do?” One answer is that you could be like Mike Pence. Mike Pence would never have been in that situation because he has a policy of never going anyplace where there is alcohol being served unless his wife is with him.

This comment also demonstrates how these purges have nothing to do with men who are regular cubical workers (or HVAC technicians for that matter). Women aren’t gong to flirt with those types of men. And besides, corporations already will fire a regular cubicle worker with the slightest hint of any sexual misconduct. It’s powerful men in the media industries for whom the rules weren’t enforced until now.

And I don’t watch any of these news shows anyway. If all of the male talking heads are replaced by bimbos, I don’t care. I just mourn for the old Squawk Box on CNBC when it was three grumpy non-liberal men talking stocks, before they added bimbo Becky Quick and pretty boy Carl Quintanilla.

Regarding the story about Thrush, it sounds like the girl thought she could turn Thrush into what gamesters call a “beta orbiter,” but high-status men don’t become beta orbiters.

NBC has to fire Matt Lauer

with 110 comments

http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/29/media/matt-lauer/index.html

After the purges are finished, will there be any male news anchors left, or will TV news become entirely female?

But when Trump-hating liberals get fired for sexual misconduct, they are getting their just deserts. So I hope the purges continue.

* * *

Comment from fortaleza84:

I do think that there will be male news anchors in the future but they will be more like Mike Pence, i.e. super-cautious in terms of interacting with women.

What’s happening now is that the rules of the game are being changed retroactively. For high status men, anyway. For low status men, it’s always been the case that one complaint can get you fired. It’s just that for low status men in the workplace, it’s unusual for them to be in situations where they are alone with an attractive female co-worker.

And now the host of some NPR show I never heard of has been fired.

The purge continues!

http://www.startribune.com/garrison-keillor-reportedly-fired-for-improper-behavior/460802703/#1

In an email to the Star Tribune Wednesday, Keillor said, “I put my hand on a woman’s bare back. I meant to pat her back after she told me about her unhappiness and her shirt was open and my hand went up it about six inches. She recoiled. I apologized. I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me and not to think about it. We were friends. We continued to be friendly right up until her lawyer called.”

Well he THOUGHT she was a friend, but she secretly hated him for being an old and ugly beta male.

The cascade of sexual misconduct allegations

with 30 comments

People want to know about the big picture. Particularly, (1) is this some sort of organized anti-Trump propaganda warfare? And (2) in the long run is this good or bad for conservatives?

As I’ve previously written, I think the big factor is not so much that it’s anti-Trump, but that it’s also anti-Clinton. The mainstream media has been keeping this stuff back for a long time because it would reflect badly on the Clintons given that there’s such a huge volume of sexual misconduct allegations against Bill. Now that Bill and Hillary are finally out of the political picture, the media can let this stuff loose and throw the Clintons under the bus.

Why the women are all suddenly coming forward?

(1) This is a classic case of copycat behavior, where once some people start doing it, everyone starts doing it.

(2) The women have a genuine grudge against or dislike for the men they are accusing. Whether or not it’s justified is another story.

Why is the media running with these stories?

(1) While the media has plenty of hypocrites among its ranks like Charlie Rose and Mark Halperin, it’s also full of feminist true believers.

(2) The SJW true believers never seem tire of stories involving racism or “misogyny.”

(3) Trump is now the status quo, and maybe the Trump-hating liberal media thought by shaking up the status quo with these sexual misconduct allegations, it would somehow hurt Trump. Well that backfired bigtime!

In the long run, is it good or bad for conservatives?

I think the answer is that it’s good. Enjoy the spectacle of a bunch of liberals going on a witch hunt against other liberals! All of these accusations involve the entertainment and news media, plus politics. The media is almost all liberals, so this is only liberals hurting each other and being hypocrites in the fact that they supported the very SJW order that is doing them in. And in politics, while there are certainly some bad apples among conservatives, I think the majority of the bad apples are among the liberals. There are a lot of conservatives like Mike Pence who believe in traditional behavior. Mike Pence was made fun of for not dining alone with women other than his wife. Well it looks like he maybe has the right idea after all!

In corporate America, if you are a beta-male schlub, the deck was already stacked against you. The corporation you work for would fire you in an instant in order to avoid lawsuits or even the appearance of coddling sexual harassers. Corporations think that 99%+ of their employees are completely replaceable, so if you are one of the replaceables, you were already screwed before this news media cascade.

But the advantage of being a beta-male schlub is that you are invisible to women, so as long as you keep to yourself there isn’t much risk of the wrath of women coming down on you. For example, if the last guy at that drinking excursion had been just a beta-male schlub and not a powerful journalist who could help people’s careers, the woman would have left early and never stuck around. Beta-male schlubs just don’t have much in the way of opportunity to get caught in traps like that.

* * *

And last night, sexual misconduct allegations come out against a powerful Democratic congressman, John Conyers of Michigan.

See what I mean about this hurting liberals more than conservatives?

To believe or not believe

with 26 comments

Unless the alleged perpetrator of the sexual assault is Bill Clinton, in which case the woman should NOT be believed and supported, because it’s just a vast right-wing conspiracy.

Perhaps it was not really possible for the mainstream media to wholeheartedly believe women until Bill Clinton was thrown under the bus, and that was not something the mainstream media was ever going to do as long as Hillary Clinton was a potential presidential candidate. (Or for that matter, if she had become president.)

Does a man need to have anything to talk about with a woman?

with 54 comments

There was a commenter this week who said something like a 30-year-old man would have nothing to talk about with a teenage girl.

I recently discussed this issue in a recent Star Trek post. You need to read my Star Trek posts!

A sub-plot was that McCoy discovered he has an incurable disease and has only one year to live, which explains why he is willing to settle down on an alien planet, so he could live his last year with a hot babe. If he went back to Earth, he would have just been another beta-male with a year to live, and zero women would have been interested in him. But what could McCoy possibly talk about with the “high priestess”? What do they have in common? Absolutely nothing. The message from TOS is that hot babeness is sufficient basis for a marriage. This is a belief that has been lost sometime during the last 50 years.

I’m not saying that I agree or disagree, I’m just putting it out there.
