Women’s role in the workplace and history

http://uncabob.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/feminizing-decline.html

The most important job in the history of the world is making and raising better people for the world. You can’t really top that for a purpose, the gift of Life. Ancient societies used to worship women for this power.

It’s the most difficult job because quality is hard to ensure. It’s also vital to a better future.

And look at the Spartan women – one job they had, to make little Spartans, they had one job, and they didn’t do it. And everyone died. This is left out of the feminist propaganda. 

A theme that could be applied to this blog: smug

I see other women my own age running about like headless chickens saying “I want to save the world” and I have to point out, 1. that’s impossible, 2. it isn’t a pleasant task (wouldn’t it involve mass-murdering all the evil people? the simplest thing?) and 3. surely the best one person can do is become The World to another person aka children?

As you can imagine, precisely none of this gets through.

STFU and pay attention to the truth you little bitches we are trying to help you!

As a rule, I don’t explain myself twice to stupid people who don’t deserve to reproduce if they can’t understand something the first time around.

Having it All is a Middle Class Myth

http://conservativewoman.co.uk/louise-kirk-women-cannot-have-it-all-without-damaging-their-families-and-homes/

They don’t seem to have noticed how middle-class they are, these female authors telling us that we can have our children, a full-time job, and love it.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am all for women having careers if they want to. We need female doctors, teachers, shopkeepers, cleaners, you name it, to keep our society human. Nor am I against the middle-class. I belong there myself. What I do object to is assuming that all women are the same, and that any woman can “have it all” without damage to family and home…

They outsource and have servants. There aren’t enough hours in the day. I’d rather be a poor worker than a poor mother. Mother is a valuable and crucial job itself. It should be respected.

uhuh hmm o really rlly doubt eyebrow flash lara croft

Forgive the dejected tone, I’ve had the stuffing knocked out of me by a combination of work duties, paperwork errors, EU bureaucracy including the CHR (long story), family complaints, friends attention-seeking because it’s summer, the police (not a bad thing), noisy neighbours currently blasting bad techno music, that SCOTUS rainbow crap on social media, a somewhat minor health quibble and another redpill writer channelling Freud at me. Within the past few days.  I am exhausted. I want to curl up in a darkened room and forget the world exists.

It used to be that all working class women were working mothers. They had to be. They’d scoff if told that was a choice or a good thing.

In STEM, women twice as likely to be hired as comparably qualified men

http://sciencecareers.sciencemag.org/career_magazine/previous_issues/articles/2015_04_13/caredit.a1500091

At ScienceInsider, Rachel Bernstein writes about a new study showing that a highly qualified woman applying for a tenure-track faculty position in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) at a U.S. university was twice as likely to be hired as an equally qualified man. “The results,” Bernstein writes, “run counter to widely held perceptions, and suggest that this is a good time for women to be pursuing academic careers. Some observers, however, say that the study—which involved actual faculty members rating hypothetical candidates—may not be relevant to real-world hiring. And they worry the results may leave the incorrect impression that universities have achieved gender parity in STEM fields.”

Article: Get out of the middle class (mindset)

http://wallstreetplayboys.com/get-out-of-the-middle-class/

When you meet a new person you should search for information and ask yourself “can we both win by working together?”. If the answer is not a yes, simply move on. There is no reason to compete with someone if they are not going to be in your lane.

Many a timeless truth in this one, highly recc.

Prestige is a Trap

It’s laughable how few people realize this when reaching for a career.
Ask law students (or politics, anyone full of themselves really) what they’ll do if no one respects them as a full, paid-up lawyer and watch them blanch.

In short, to be exceptional, you must be willing to do things which make you the exception. Everyone else takes weekends off? Work weekends. Everyone else gets drunk at bars, with pictures as evidence? Never do that. Everyone is competition. (Or no one, as it becomes ideally).
You’ll speed past them faster with omission than commission.

Fake Bohemians are crushing the working class white and taking their jobs

http://www.spectator.co.uk/features/9270141/want-a-fun-job-you-just-have-to-pick-the-right-parents/

Recently one morning, as I was weeping over Caitlin Moran’s (daughter of Mr and Mrs Moran of Wolverhampton) brilliant book How to Build a Girl — specifically, the heartbreaking way she writes about coming from an impoverished family — a report came on to the radio with the glad tidings that working-class white children are now doing worse in schools than any other ethnic group. Said one Graham Stuart, the Conservative chairman of the education select committee, ‘They do less homework and are more likely to miss school than other groups. We don’t know how much of the underperformance is due to poor attitudes to school, a lack of work ethic or weak parenting.’

No, we don’t, do we? But what if it was to do with feeling that there’s just no point in bothering? That the odds are now so shamelessly stacked against a white working-class child getting a decently paid job, let alone one they actually enjoy, that to try hard at school would be to give up the last remnants of agency and rebellion? It’s no secret that social mobility — which just a few years back we all presumed would rock on regardless — has reversed, doing over the already vulnerable working class with the force of a steamroller. Yes, you chirpy Cockneys and you stoic Northerners, not only have the jobs your parents did — making things — disappeared, but the cushy jobs that a blessed few of you once might have escaped the surly bonds of the proletariat by nabbing — modelling, acting, writing for newspapers — have now been colonised by the children of the rich/famous/well-connected, too.

Looking at photos of Moss Junior, one is spitefully reminded of that line some wag came out with about Greta Garbo’s stand-in, one Geraldine Dvorak: ‘She has everything that Garbo has. Except that thing that Garbo has.’

They think qualifications can be bought.

Though simple starlets may compare showing off for lots of money to being a soldier (Paltrow and Cruise), being raped (Charlize and Kristen) and being stoned to death (Geldof), that’s just to put us ‘civilians’ off and keep the jammy jobs safe for their own spawn.

Idiots. Not even useful idiots.

If a Martian came down today, he’d believe that only the children of the famous are allowed to have enjoyable careers — the royal family started it, but only now are we seeing how crass and counterproductive it is when people get jobs because of who their parents are.

Because they aren’t qualified. And it isn’t fair, but neither is life.

Insult follows injury follows indignity when it comes to the prospects of today’s white working-class youth.

That’s the thing about nepotism; it’s ultra-conservative but the opposite of patriotic, wasting the endless talent of all those could-have-been runners and writers born on the wrong side of the tracks.

No matter, because the BBC have just announced that they have hatched a new £2 million scheme to fast-track black and Asian writers, actors and presenters. That’ll be the young blacks and Asians who in fact do better than poor whites in school — but as the white trash have a lack of work ethic, it’s probably their fault. Similarly, the Guardian has a ‘Positive Action Scheme — Ethnic Minorities’ in place, but zero for poor white would-be journalists.

They are noticing.

These deaths by a thousand snubs add to the impression of white working-class children being young ghosts in their own country, a new blank, betrayed generation of Chesterton’s famous Secret People:

‘We hear men speaking for us of new laws strong and sweet,

Yet is there no man speaketh as we speak in the street.

It may be we shall rise the last as Frenchmen rose the first,

Our wrath come after Russia’s wrath and our wrath be the worst.

It may be we are meant to mark with our riot and our rest

God’s scorn for all men governing. It may be beer is best.

But we are the people of England; and we have not spoken yet.

Smile at us, pay us, pass us. But do not quite forget.’

These ghosts may be less patient than their pacified parents, and prime candidates for the Ukip dream.

Correct. They will be very angry voters.

I believe these are the people who will pull off any sort of Revolution, if it hasn’t already sunk in they’ve been abandoned and replaced by Labour, their historical home.

The irrationality of forcing stupid women into science

http://takimag.com/article/a_miasma_of_untruth_theodore_dalrymple/print

This is a subject quite close to me. I’ve started receiving letters from hopeful liberal arts majors at charities and departments encouraging me to “contribute” to their “initiatives” to “encourage” women into STEM.

Their dreams, look how they die.
………………..Why encourage any competition?
