The more I play with it, the more I understand it but at the same time discover new things to be confused about. No I’m not talking about my penis I’m talking about my laptop and sitting down to write at it is something that time rarely allows me to embrace. Working full time and being a single parent doesn’t help either… Wait. Did I just sound like so many women there?
Anyway, I have snuck a little time in recently and after I wrote my last post I was immediately attracted to the female privilege I am to rework next which states:
“You can be confident that your coworkers won’t assume you were hired because of your sex.”
Now this little gem (found here) I loved instantly after reading it. Not because I thought it contained even a zebra’s stool ounce of wisdom but because I had just recently read an article which revealed a fact that turned the whole thing into this beautiful misshapen heap of slap in the ass irony.
I shed a single tear. Really I did.
Perhaps a small window can be opened here, not to the ad nauseum actions of feminism at work, but it’s dark and real consequences. However it is not we, the sane, that will feel the effects of said consequences, but rather the feminists that will get the full, Hi-def close encounter with irony of the 3rd kind. The article in all its glorious tom foolery can be found…
If you didn’t get the hint, please go read the article first before continuing. Irony is a mistress who needs her extremities slightly caressed before she graces you with her full experience.
Absorbed it? Good. Now let’s read that male privilege one more time.
“You can be confident that your coworkers won’t assume you were hired because of your sex.”
Part 1 – How to get a job if you are a woman
In the article you just read it stated, “In an experiment that involved sending out more than 2,500 resumes either with or without photos of the applicant, economics researchers Bradley Ruffle at Ben-Gurion University and Ze’ev Shtudiner at Ariel University Center sought to answer the question of whether being good looking could help you find a job.” Now I wish we lived in a world where the awful consequences of hypocrisy were more transparent and better understood by the majority of people, but that galaxy is 12 parsecs over. You know the one where feminism was never born, but since we don’t I’m going to have to rub it in a little.
Here we have this study to determine what factor attractiveness has in regards to companies hiring employees. These two economist researchers, poised and ready, send their troops out to collect the data. As they anxiously await the results, the troops come limping home far too early for all the data to have been collected.
“Why are you back soon!” shouts economist number 1. “It’s impossible you have everything we need!”
The quivering troops reply, “We ran into something we hadn’t reckoned on.”
That’s right. They hadn’t counted on the towering gauntlet that lay between them and the information they wished to share with the world. What was this gauntlet you say? Well none other than the Minotaur of Crete …err… I mean the HR department.
Anyone who has worked for almost any type of company knows HR, but despite my assumption that most of you don’t have the best of relationships with these strange folk living in your offices, how bad could they be? Well there is the fact that according to the research, “93 percent of the HR staffers deciding whether to call in someone for an interview were female. It turns out that HR women (who also tend to be young and single and hence still in the dating market for men) are eager to meet with handsome men. But they’re jealous of beautiful women.” Don’t believe it? If you are at work, take a stroll down to the HR department and take a peek inside. Count the pumps and scents of perfume, and if you do it stealthily enough you might catch them doing one of their two favorite activities, talking or doing nothing.
But I’m not here to write a hit piece on HR, the article did that nicely. I am here to expose the hypocrisy of the thesis stating that women are severely disadvantaged in the work force because men only hire them for their looks; oh how the enema of irony hurts so good. It is not the hairy outstretched palm of patriarchy turning ugly women away and groping beautiful women as they walk through the company doors with no real experience, it is actually other bitchy feminists just like you that are the reason you are printing out your 15th résumé this month. In fact if more men held positions at the front gates of companies, according to the data you would all be employed by now. (That is if you send in a naked picture of yourself along with your former work history)
So do people assume that women get hired for their looks and not their skills? Well one of the articles that Forbes sourced stated, “Studies have shown that they (women) are more likely to be promoted than their plain-Jane colleagues. Because people tend to project positive traits onto them, such as sensitivity and poise, they may also be at an advantage in job interviews.” After the revelations of the aforementioned Israeli study however, whether or not you are hired based on your sex depends on who is doing the hiring and 93% of the time it is a woman, so if you are pretty you might also be out of luck.
Part 2 – Female Aggression
You are an attractive women hitting the pavement in search of a new career. You are determined and know that what you might lack in ability you can more than make up for with some perfume and a push-up bra. It might not be fair but hey, it’s a dog eat dog world, or should I say woman eat woman.
The New York Times sourced a recent issue of ‘Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society’ where a Dr. Hrdy pointed out some interesting data about female competition. In it she states, “intrasexual competition is the most important factor explaining the pressures that young women feel to meet standards of sexual conduct and physical appearance.” In the immortal words of Dr. Watson, no shit Sherlock! Women really compete aggressively with one another over sexual conduct and physical appearance? What most of us just took for common knowledge, these scientists set out to prove once and for all as being the truth.
The article states, “To see how female students react to a rival, researchers brought pairs of them into a laboratory at McMaster University for what was ostensibly a discussion about female friendships. But the real experiment began when another young woman entered the room asking where to find one of the researchers.” The pairs of female students observed a very attractive woman come into the room saying she was looking for a researcher. Unknown to the students, their reactions were being recorded as they observed the women sometimes in jeans and sometimes in a much sexier get up. The jeans didn’t get much of a reaction but when she wore the low cut blouse and short skirt, ‘virtually all the students reacted with hostility.’ To me, a study like this is the equivalent of poking a hungry wild bear and expecting him not to eat you, but hey it’s science.
During the study the female students conducted themselves as hostile females do. They rolled their eyes, muttered among themselves and even shouted at the woman. When the lady left the room the reactions were even worse with the students laughing out loud and saying that the woman must have wanted to have sex with a professor. Again, are we really surprised at this?
The article sums up by also stating that slut shaming is committed far more often by women than men, and that it is social pressure from female peers that drive women neurotic with fancy diets, expensive clothes and general low self esteem, not TV advertisements or the half attractive neighbor that seems to be staring at you every time you are watering your lawn. Yes, women can now, under the sound objectivity of science, be assured that the greatest threat to their strivings for equality and feminine pride are other women. Now go eat a piece of cheesecake, watch Twilight for the 17th time and cry yourself to sleep.
One thing I like about this continuing piece I’m writing is that it challenges me and my writing ability. No, I don’t have wet dreams about what I can write next on the ill behavior of women and feminists. It is often a struggle between actually giving a shit about this subject and playing the X-Box and the latter usually wins out; but by God you do learn a thing or two.
For one thing, though the staggering pettiness women have between one another comes as no surprise, it is refreshing to see scientists, and women scientists at that, really drive the point home. Sure women may feel they are unfairly thought of as having gained employment simply because of their sex, but guess what? It is other women who are making that assumption! And not only are women assuming you are nothing but a slut in a business suit, but they are also in the best position to shatter your career achieving dreams because your boobs seemed a little perkier than hers when you came in for the job interview.
There is no patriarchy here. That old dog has bought the farm. The looming shadow of a successful man no more holds the key to your winning career than does your see through blouse and 4 inch pumps. Instead could we be seeing an unforeseen side effect of modern day feminism? Are the little spoiled princesses finally waking up from their generation long self aggrandizing binge, with the worst hangover imaginable laying in bed next to an extremely obese Asian man and a midget dyke dressed as a purple dildo? Have women become their own worst enemies in their blind pursuit of unlimited privilege with no responsibility? Time will tell and when it does I’ll make lots of popcorn and have a front row seat to karma’s wonderful conclusion. But wait a few minutes and some feminist retard will try to magically fem-splain how men are somehow responsible for the puke stains and graffiti on her tits. In the meantime let’s try to come up with our own female privilege for number four on our list…
Wait a second… when I think about it, I haven’t really highlighted a female privilege in this piece at all. Instead I’ve only pointed out how the biggest disadvantage women have in regards to their careers and social status is other women! I can’t for the life of me think of any advantage women may have in this area if they are doomed to constantly compete with other women!
Unless they are ugly…
Curse you Mr. Metrosexual!
You may have won this time, but I’ll be back!
