It is a conundrum

"People push for there to be more women in the workplace, college, and government and at the same time complain that these institutions are getting worse and worse."
- Cane Caldo

There can't possibly be a... connection, can there? Please feel free to recite the "correlation is not causation" mantra now, if you wish.

Very well: correlation is not causation. Great, now I feel dirty.

Cartels are rampant today, and needed for organizations to share the pain of over hiring women or over admitting female students. Men excel in areas of the economy that can't be controlled by a cartel: flipping homes, sales, start-ups, exploration, local trades, etc.

Exactly. In other words, entrepreneurship. This explains why these sectors of the economy, those outside the corporate borgdom so beloved (and controlled) by the Establishment are the most heavily taxed, regulated and hounded by the State. Entrepreneurships are free thinkers not easily dominated by the prevailing socioeconomic narrative. God knows Leviathan can't tolerate that.

I'm waiting for the AARP or a reborn "Gray Panthers" to demand senile citizens be given equal considerations for jobs, after all, can't new-knees Kenny fight fires better than 120 pound valerie (note the answer is yes, and we should shudder)

No, that's wrong because history is finished and we are the winnarz. Everything is the best now because we are the best now.

My daughter, strong and independent young woman that she is, hates working for other women. Its too bitchy and counterproductive! She much prefers a male boss.
Leadership over consensus-seeking any day!

Some of us would say that "strong, independent women" DESERVE to work for other women. With very few exceptions that I've encountered to date, I don't want them working for me. Trouble with a capital "T."

120? How many women looking for government jobs weigh 120? 350, maybe. She'll be lucky to climb the ladder without taking rest stops.

> hates working for other women

I often wonder if it times women refuse jobs that require them to report to women, hence enabling men to step into the role. I'm sure it's happened, but wonder what the true impact is.

What's "The Hidden Truth" about? The book being sponsored is new to me.

Along these lines, this weekend, I was visiting at a new church. The pastor gave a long sermon on inclusiveness, and mentioned that he had eliminated each "all men" ministry. Either it's inclusive of women, or it's not allowed, he said.

So, afterward, I overhear someone mention that a certain ministry used to be all men, but now it's all women. The women joined, and the men left. Made me think of this blog.

The willful blindness towards this truth incenses me. The trouble is that, despite the stupidity, it is effective marketing. Women in these institutions (but most specifically in the workplace) generate piss-poor production, but it does bring in money and prestige in the short term.

I didn't see this until Dalrock sent me the link yesterday morning. Thanks for the props.
