"Women have no idea"

And here I thought we'd be more productive with women in the workforce. Tapping into that vast pool of hitherto untapped talent and all. And yet, Dr. Helen is unimpressed with her sex, nominally at work:
Apparently, rather than focusing on their own jobs, men are supposed to spend their time playing therapist to how women think and feel. And of course the author has no understanding of how hard it is for men to even interact with women at work, given all the rules and regulations. One “tip” in the article tells men not to be afraid of tears:

    When Paul Gotti of Cardinal Health gave performance reviews, he says that, without even realizing it, he was easier on female directors: “I didn’t want them to cry, to feel bad.” He recognizes now that this was no favor. They should have the feedback “so that they can grow too.”

    Ms. Flynn of Flynn Heath Holt says that her firm has found that men aren’t only afraid of tears but of getting in trouble with “the diversity police” for speaking harshly, or of women being “too high maintenance, or [that] she’ll ask a million questions.” As a result, “men are scared to death to give us feedback…. They’ll let women run astray and off course and be fired before they’ll take the chance to give them feedback.”

    Her advice: Be honest. That doesn’t mean you have to be blunt, adds Mr. Schwartz of the Energy Project, which is more than 60% female: “I’ve learned it’s a balance between honesty and empathy. Honesty without empathy is cruelty.”


Women have no idea what men in the workplace are dealing with when they work with women. And men, despite what the author thinks, are not there to babysit women by telling them to ask for raises, brushing away tears and “twisting” women’s arms to ask for her own promotion.
I suggest learning to refer to "equality" and to say "look, you're a strong, independent woman who doesn't need any help from a man to do her job" will be vital for many men in the corporate environment. Black knighting and ruthless compliance with all workplace regulations is the optimal way to circumvent the lunacy.

And, speaking of being honest, the <a href="http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/rsavcaf9513.pdf:>DoJ</a> tells us that college rape and sexual assault occurs at the rate of 6.1 per 1,000 women.

The rate of completed rapes is 2.0 per 1,000, so it seems to me that the number of false rape claims could be the same or even greater, especially give recent media reports.

I've had varied experiences working with and for women. My current boss is a woman and I couldn't ask for a better boss. She's technical, hardworking, and tough. She understands her that duty as a leader is to protect her people from the organization as much as it is to provide needed services to the company.It helps that she's retired military.

My previous female supervisor however was anther thing entirely. She was only hired because the was the HR director's lesbian girlfriend. Her previous job was tutoring illiterate natives at the local reservation. I literally had to do her job for her. budget projections, technical revies, everything. After about 4 month she simply started forwarding all of her job-related email and memos to me for review. She was helpless, emotionally fragile, needy and not very bright. She had literally no tech experience at all. None.

My current boss is a pleasure to work for. I can just relax and do my job, and she takes care of the corporation. The other one, not so much. But she was easy to manipulate (Can you say 24% pay increase? I sure did!). And she left after 14 months. She was replaced by an incompetent jerk with an MBA, and 8 years experience managing failed projects for Motorola. Literally none of the projects he had ever worked on had been successful. I smelled the doom and found a better spot very quickly. Neither the corporation nor the group survived the year

Far left liberals, male and female, will lie anyway they can to harm you; get you fired, harm your standing at work. I know from first hand experience. And, the supervisors and business owners are terrified at facing them down even when they know the complainant is lying and you are not guilty of anything, These owners and supervisors will, sometimes, even tell you that you are being railroaded but that they are between a rock and hard place.
They don't even realize that, at some point in the future, the wheel will turn and their time will arrive. Then, those harmed in the past will have no mercy.

Year long lurker.... For some reason my Word Press account from another site will not allow me to log in here so I apologize in advance if this comes up as anon.

I work in a building with 85% woman and there is a "mouth" filter that kicks in... most of the time when I interact with the woman. What I state needs to be calculated with great care because I might bruise someones delicate feelings.

It is actually worse than that since there is a hierarchy of employees so one has to be careful as to not only trod on their feelings but also not tarnish their profession as well.

Even when they do something phenomenally stupid.

Imagine working in a building with a number of "Kaci Hickox's" if you get my drift. Being a dept. head of mechanical services gives me some juice but I still need to proceed with care.

I know a guy at Home Depot. A boomer. He knows where every piece of plumbing is, every electrical doodad, every type of tile, flooring, etc.

There are maybe 5 girls, aged 20 to 30, who spend most of their time trying to find Carl to ask him for help with a customer. They know nothing.

They don't know a 20 amp breaker from a pvc fitting from a machine screw.

If you are looking at stuff, one of these ladies will ask..."can I help you find something?" and you say..."yeah I'm looking for an xyz fitting, they will ask you followup questions...designed to throw up a smokescreen...and finally they will go lumbering after Carl.

Carl will come help you.

They all make about the same pay. Regardless of the lie that women make less than men for the same job.

In a fair world, at Home Depot, Carl should make about $40 an hour. The ladies should make about $2 an hour. That would square things up.

Wait till the boomer men die off and you have nothing but empty headed women and fat millennial slugs blinking stupidly at you while breathing through their mouth.

William Andersen has more on the anti-male collectivism at universities on LRC
today. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/12/william-l-anderson/anti-boyism-on-campus/ His comparison of rape in the Congo vs that at a US university is apt.

Bottom line: the gulf between the real world and the world collectivists are attempting to create is getting so large that entire institutions in all likelihood teeter on the brink of collapse. I can't imagine who is now dumb enough to pay six figures to subject their sons and daughters to the higher ed nut-factory where males and females shower across the hall from each other, condoms are free by the case, ETOH is practically on tap yet no girl ever told a self-serving lie.

"The modern 'equalized' workplace is no place for a man"

Not true in all cases. I'm paid and paid well since I have outstanding attention to detail, memory for regulations and skill set which few men let alone women can match. The building I work at literately cannot run without a sharp operator on the mechanical end of things making sure the lights & heat stay on plus being in compliance with all state and federal regulations. The sad part is workers of my caliber are very difficult to find and hire. My last employer lost the use of my services after I reported a serious fire violation by one of the "protected classes" and they turned a blind eye.

I gave my notice on the spot.

Blogger Hermit December 13, 2014 5:11 PM  

Reading this is funny because I had a casual conversation about IQ and races with my mother today and at some point she said "I don't like it but I have to say that women look less intelligent than men: when I'm explaining something difficult to a man in the office he usually understand the point quickly. Instead, when I'm explaining things to other women I often had to give up because they just don't get it. It's like if they lack logic".

My mother was a moderate feminist in his times when all that stuff about female equality started but she's overall traditional and uninterested in modern equalism (and dislikes faggots).

She also said that women are often devilish and unsufferable in work places, especially to other women.
So, I would not say that "modern 'equalized' workplace is no place for a man" because it's probably no place for anyone, including women.

Yeah Gary, I also keep getting told that there are plenty of married men in America who are not ruled by their wives. I just don't ever actually see any of these guys.

Sarc aside, I'm sure there are still a few married men scattered around the U.S. who aren't human tools, just as a few guys aren't under The Eye in the workplace. But a few doesn't invalidate the majority position, nor the point of my comment. Cheers.

Hi Hermit, well, I worked in various workplaces in the Sixties before the full onset of matriarchy. All grunt or blue collar stuff. No place was perfect but they were OK. Just work, you know? No gender politics. Of course that was before Equality For Some became the law of the land.

Honesty without empathy is cruelty.

No its just honesty.

The fact that someone made this statement is proof that the differences between the sexes is impossible to over come on a corporate level. One man can figure out how to relate to one (or a small group of) women fairly well. We do not have the capacity to figure out how to deal with each and every individual female exactly how she wants to be dealt with on a case by case moment by moment basis.

A man gets hired to do a job, because there is a job that needs to get done. He takes the job because he expects to get paid. As long as he is doing the work and getting paid everyone is getting what they expect. When you add sexual politics into the mix, the quality of the work done is going to go down. Eventually that will effect the pay, job satisfaction etc. We've had over 40 years of American style feminism and we are plummeting in the rankings in terms of productivity, standard of living, and compensation, compared to past inflation adjusted measurements.

It took a while but I finally learned I HAVE VALUE and looked for a women who was complimentary to me. We have been very happy with each other for 7 years now and still going strong. Do I dominate her? No. We have a strong partnership and both of us play our parts. There is a reason traditional roles are what they are. I treat her like a queen and she treats me like a king and we know each others measure.

Men need to learn to go on strike and not settle for the twaddle modern feminists peddle. It is important skill to identify these women as quickly as possible and avoid them at all costs.

You're doing it wrong. Follow the rules and regulations to the letter. Do no more than the minimum required for your job. Document everything. Save all the emails when you can. Give them no grounds to fire you. When they do fire you then you find a good lawyer and sue them for wrongful termination.

I have entertained the notion of what would happen if the men who "kept things running" went on strike, go Galt if you will. The illusion of women being better or equal to men in every way would be shattered in short order I would think.

I seem to recall a feminist or comedian (I confuse the teo at times) musing on the subject once. She was lamenting the fact women were high and mighty about themselves till they got a flat tire and a man had to show up with a tow truck to bring the car to another man who would fix the vehicle.

Men and women are complimentary creatures, modern feminists want men beat down with complete domination over them. Screw that. I get up in their faces at every opportunity and wing it right back at them. Sometimes in a sly manner like when I'm at work, other times in a more forceful manner. I have absolutely no problem with reducing a woman to tears when they bring a knife to a gunfight.

Yeah, the key is complete wide-eyed sincerity and never, ever breaking character. You don't give them even the slightest hint that you are doing this out of bitterness or anger. Act completely clueless that there is any reason why the rules and guidelines shouldn't apply the same with men as with women.

Use their rhetoric in such a way that they are uncertain how to label you. Since you are using the rules they set, they can't call you a misogynist, so they will look for some hint of bitterness or vengefulness. Don't give them that. Remember the one thing they fear most is falling on the wrong side of any conflict. As long as they are unsure of your motives, you can play them.

He interviews a number of Norwegian idiot academics on questions of race and sex and whatnot. We, the watchers know that he's tearing their assholes wide open, but he poses as a honestly curious and befuddled questioner and the idiots can only step into the trap.
The point is, he smiles and nods and allows the fools to enlighten him with absurdities, looks puzzled and asks further questions. They never catch on that he's not with them. Until it was aired on TV.

Well there is a temptation to deal in absolutes which as I get older I try to avoid. I know a number of women who are very sharp, sharper than most men. Unfortunately most women don't employ critical thinking skills and are easily swayed by the media.

My wife isn't one of them but truth be told it took years of training on my part pointing out how much the media lies to the public on a daily basis. Figuring out I was being lied to on a daily basis by the media is what put me on the path to being a small government conservative.

When I was younger I had no particular political leaning, figuring out I was being bamboozled by the media and why and becoming a father changed everything.
