Women were coal-miners

As were children, you don’t hear them trying to signal with it. It’s rare to find a male-specific line of work women weren’t roped into at some point.

Why do Americans lie?

Are they too dumb to look it up?

Intellectual dishonest?

Shallow?

Is it because they don’t have a history without us?

For once, the feminists got a point. Working conditions are important but since men worked in more factories, it uplifted men at the same time – something they had no problem with.

Look at all the issues with matchstick factories exploding and asbestos inhalation.

It’s particularly grating because all of the men complaining about miners refuse to do that kind of labour now. Yes, that’s right, they totally claim a gender role only to reject it in practice.

Nice freedom ya got there.

Snowflakes.

Egalitarian mythos, reverse snobbery

https://bonald.wordpress.com/2015/09/24/the-problem-of-egalitarian-superiority/

It is.

The secret to egalitarianism’s success is that the superior people have been converted to egalitarianism.  They can’t straight-up admit this, of course, since the content of their creed is that there are no superior people, or at least that it has little connection to social power.  On the other hand, they don’t try very hard to deny something so gratifying to their egos.  Officially, IQ doesn’t measure anything, but they make sure you know that theirs are higher than the conservatives’.  Marriage is officially oppressive, but they like to remind us that they beat us on avoiding divorce and unwed pregnancy.  These claims are all more-or-less true.  Liberals dominate every profession because they are by-and-large superior…..

It’s counter-signalling snob. Reverse snobbery. And it’s entirely based on social power, which is inherited (this is why they deny HBD).

I’m too smart to believe in IQ people.

I inherit furniture but throw it out to buy Ikea.

I’ll get an internship I don’t need to be paid for by middle-class secondary school connections but I’ll go to University and treat it like a Booze Cruise.

I can afford to take a Gap Yah on my parent’s savings. You aren’t really human until you travel.

We don’t hate Europe, we love Eurotrash! Our own white trash, however….

Every ism is valid but classism is just silly, what’s with the chip on your shoulder?

They get to tell themselves they earned their privilege. And it’s permanent (nope!)…

Boy, are they in for a shock.

When will this country waterboard the socialists with their own champers?

If we’re all equal, they deserve their position and nobody can drag them down.

Video: Snobbery

Snobs can’t judge the content of character to a person, so they must rest on the superficial, the signalled.
All status signallers are snobs.

Snobs are phony intellectuals.

They can’t discern quality, they lack those traits. They judge wealth, and other trappings of reward. They trust a third party opinion (judges, experts, authorities) more than their own and model like a child, from these. It’s mainstream, it’s safe, it’s very Goldilocks to have someone to look down on and someone else to suck up to.

They cannot discriminate quality, so they sneer at ‘discrimination’.

The Middle Class, who think good blood doesn’t matter, because they have none. The new snob, a rejection of blood and acceptance of any identity pretense, however flimsy. They cannot step out from their herd, they cannot be individual and they cannot be creative. They live in permanent fear of rejection. They seek to compete by spotting the creative, but this descended into shock-value politics, an artistic game of chicken. They are the Emperor of no clothes and have nothing. Most are in debt to look rich. They bought no opportunities and a heap of depression and anxieties. If their inheritance legally relied upon legitimacy, they’d quickly care about blood all of a sudden.

The Ikea caste.

The guy drawing attention to his Rolex and bragging about its mechanism doesn’t deserve to be wearing one. He doesn’t realize his target is the people who already know.
