Is MeToo turning into NotYou at small companies? (self.TheRedPill)

Congratulations #Metoo…You’ve Made Women Employees Radioactive BY DAVIS M.J. AURINI · JUNE 25, 2018

The following was posted anonymously on LinkedIn, on June 10th, and it’s been growing in popularity since then. Earlier this afternoon it was taken down, and not even the Wayback Machine has a record of it. Welcome to modern Internet censorship. The article reads as true – the #MeToo movement might just be undoing all of the damage that Affirmative Action and HR Harassment Firings have done to men’s ability to work, and perhaps we’ll be returning to a proper, Godly ordering of things where men can bring home the bacon, and trust their wives to stay home to support the household. One can hope. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “Ban Bossy”, heh.

Congratulations #Metoo…You’ve Made Women Employees Radioactive Published on June 10, 2018

As a corporate CEO I now have a fiducial duty to avoid hiring women

I was having lunch the other day with my group of fellow CEOs…some current and some former. I asked the question: “Well, who has gotten that visit from the corporate lawyer, advising you to avoid hiring women executives”. Every one in the group groaned and looked away. The message was clear. They had ALL gotten that visit.

As a corporate CEO, I have an fiduciary and moral obligation to my employees, NOT to do something stupid that will destroy the company and throw them out into a very hard and dangerous world. The streets of Silicon Valley are full of RVs and campers with homeless former engineers and former managers, many with no health insurance. I am obligated by law and by custom not to add my people to that list.

That’s why I can’t hire women.

Even before #Metoo, hiring women came with a significant risk. I’ve seen several small companies wiped out by some angry ex-employee claiming some sort of sexual harassment. In each and every case, the company leaders honestly tried to prevent the problem, but were wiped out anyway. “$150K just to walk in the front door” says any law firm. That’s enough to destroy most startups.

As a CEO I have a legal obligation to avoid risk. Because of #Mettoo, women walk in the door with the metaphorical equivalent of a suicide bomb strapped to their back. The slightest wrong move, the slightest insult, and BANG. Everybody is dead.

In the past it was just a few women who had this tendency to use lawsuits to destroy. Now in the era of #Metoo, it has become fashionable. Even the not-so-bright receptionist I hire as a temp is on the lookout for her moment of perceived fame.

As a CEO there is absolutely nothing I can do to prevent a clash, when women are so eager to take offense. Human sexuality is wired into every man and women. Even if I install webcams and watch every single second of every interaction, having training classes, and instill fear in my male employees, there will inevitably be some action that some man will take, maybe on purpose, maybe accidentally, that will cause some woman to take offense and sue. I am unable to prevent it, just as I can’t prevent someone from passing gas after lunch.

Litigation is the business equivalent of nuclear war. It only destroys. Now every woman walking into my HR department is carrying a nuclear launch button on her sleeve, and is being goaded by their friends to USE IT! Every other employee in that company — male and female — has a mortgage and family expenses, and is looking with fear at that new female hire.

This is what generals call an “asymmetric threat”. I have zero control, almost no preventative measures, and huge, deadly risk.

That leaves me and other smart CEOs with only one solution: stop hiring women. And that is what’s happening, quickly or slowly, at every small startup all over the country. Will we be sued for not hiring women? Nope. Hard to prove. Penalties actually quite unlikely.

To my granddaughters who are just entering the workforce, and to the many wonderful women who long ago learned to ignore male clumsiness and just get the job done — I can only say how sorry and sad I am to see this. Unfortunately, you women have been betrayed by a group of radical women who are, to put it bluntly, fools. They are dragging you into a conflict which will leave you burned and the men in your lives burned. Everyone will get burned except the lawyers and the activists who will, as always, sit back and profit from the war they created.

Maybe there will be comments from women telling me “I don’t get it” or “You’ll get sued.” Um, no. I get it just fine. I’m just speaking a harsh truth, that people don’t like. Listen.

Very similar to threatpoint in marriage, marriage is handing a loaded gun to a woman, pointing it at her husbands face, and telling her not to pull it. Eventually having that leverage will get the best of anybody.

[–]Sumshot 243 points244 points  (22 children)

As long as there is competition, most CEOs will stay males, no matter what. And with competition I also mean competition of countries. A country that impedes its economy will simply lose against a country which doesn't do that, if the other terms are equal.

Reminds me of Clinton. Bill. With his history and the current #metoo climate, you'd think he'd be the crown achievement of feminism to take him down. But no, he's untouchable.

[–]CursingWhileNursing 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Just as his wife who not only openly made ridiculed women claiming he abused them, but also made quite open threats.

Feminist movement saddled up with the Clinton's and Democratic party in the 90s despite the allegations from women like Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey.

The Democratic party is keeping Bill away from campaigning for mid-term candidates because of #metoo despite a desperate need for star power given Obama's low profile post presidency.

Yep. It is for this reason that long term Western countries will lose.

Sad but eh, no society is forever

[–]Pelmaleon 39 points40 points  (8 children)

You severely underestimate how many powerful, wise, intelligent executives there are running Western companies. Sure, on the whole we aren't optimally out-producing and strangle-holding markets like we used to, but to say that our competitive subculture will be eradicated is just silly. We just need some time and patience for the pendulum to start swinging back into balance.

[–]2Stoned0Jaguar9deux 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Most non western countries the rich are corrupt and their kids dont compete against the poor. The poor dint even habe an education. The west is highly educated and highly competitive, have diverse sets of knowledge within thier workforce.

[–]fifi508 3 points4 points  (3 children)

This is false. The west can not even compete with the work ethic of the east. The norm in the east is 15hr work days. They are way better in mathematics, computer science and technology too. West is fucked for the future, it’s almost laughable.

[–]2Overkillengine 42 points43 points  (0 children)

Meh, dragging out a task that should only take 6 hours into 12 hours in order to appear hard working by staying late is not work ethic. It is prioritizing face ahead of results.

[–]mmerijn 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Too much working causes inefficiencies because of a lack of rest and "leisure time". The reason why rest is important is because for one thing your mind works terribly on even as little as 1 hour rest (and a lack of rest also hampers your ability to recognize how poorly you are actually functioning), and leisure time is important because it allows for more "change" to occur eg. you learn new skills, different mindsets, and other people outside of your bubble confront you on stupid things you (and your company/industry) are doing that you don't realize you are doing that you otherwise would never have heard about because you only ever either work or sleep.

[–]Bing_Bang_Bam 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Their societies and culture lack creativity. They don't invent most things. They are good at refining though.

[–]Ganaria_Gente 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Not eradicated

Just defanged. Or cucked, or whatever terminology you will to use

And of course, this country being so huge, I'm sure you'll find exceptions. But they're just a minority.....

[–]ucfgavin 68 points69 points  (10 children)

I treat women completely different that I work with...its just not worth the risk. I like my job, I don't want to get fired because of an inappropriate joke.

[–]1dayalion 42 points43 points  (4 children)

I won’t even meet with a female employee without a witness or in a public area. It’s terrifying. Misspeak to a male colleague by accident and you maybe need to apologize before the problem goes away....do it with a woman? Goodbye career

[–]TheRealJesusChristus 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Its a bit exaggerated but yeah you should watch what you say to a woman.

[–]banthrow 17 points18 points  (1 child)

do it with a woman? Goodbye career

I don't think you understand the risk. You don't need to speak with a woman to be at risk. You only need a women to hear something that she don't like in a private conversation between you and other coworker. Or sometimes not even hear. If she don't like the things you say, you will get fired.

[–]--Edog-- 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Same here. I DO NOT; comment on their appearance, make any remotely off color jokes. ask them what they did over the weekend, or inquire about their marital status/dating status. I just pretend that they are guys....guys who will rat me out to the boss if I do anything wrong.

[–]ucfgavin 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Pretty much the same here. Its kind of a shame too, because there are several that I work with that I think are pretty cool and would be fine to hang out with and joke with...but its just not worth the risk.

[–]--Edog-- 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Oh, sure I work with some really cool women, but ...but #metoo means they are ALL capable of ruining your careeer with just one single complaint to HR. The thing that scares me is getting into an actual disagreement or turf batle with a gal who uses it to try to destroy me.

[–]Warped_Mindless 255 points256 points  (5 children)

I'm a part time business consultant and yes, many companies are now weary of hiring women.

[–]H42 144 points145 points  (1 child)

weary, wary ... either word works in that scenario.

[–]saibot83 56 points57 points  (0 children)

Good. Society needs to turn this muthafucka around.

[–]Grimaceapprentice21 26 points27 points  (0 children)

They should have been weary of hiring them when they realized they only work 5 hours a week.

[–]red_philosopher 168 points169 points  (20 children)

I never looked at the risk of hiring women over men. I bet you can actually calculate the annualized loss expectancy for a female asset to a company based on the frequency of sexual harassment lawsuits and the average cost of such a lawsuit.

There is an estimated 13000 claims of sexual harassment according to the EEOC in 2015. Men account for 20% of those, so 10400 are female-based. It is estimated that ~90% of harassment doesn't get reported. So we can guess that there should be about 104000 cases per year, (the actual threat). Each case averaged a cost of ~$200000 in damages/fees/etc. There are approximately 72 million women in the workforce, representing an annualized rate of occurence of 0.14% (the rate for men is ~0.036%).

The annualized loss expectancy is $280 per female hired. The annualized loss expectancy is $70 per male hired.

Every year, a female employee costs a company $210 more in sexual harassment costs.

That's about $0.10 per employee work hour.

[–]notagooddoctor 55 points56 points  (2 children)

This is an interesting perspective.

Your $200000 total; could you break that down. Is that Settlement? Or legal fees, time, opportunity cost, etc

If you’re IBM, who cares about $200k when your legal staff each cost more than that. If you’re a young company, that’s crippling

Thanks

[–]red_philosopher 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Settlement average was ~150k, I figured legal fees for both parties and productivity loss made for a reasonable 200k.

[–]notagooddoctor 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Thanks so much.

I’ve been involved in a fair few settlements with young companies (not my doing!!) and I’d say that the legal fees would be approx 20-25% of a claim. That’s broad and vague

BUT, the cost of “distraction” for the CEO and Senior MGMT of a small company is massive. I’d conservatively say 10% of salary plus opportunity cost of not doing their actual job.

If 4 people are involved in discussion (board of a small biz) and it last 6 months, that’s coming close to the cost of the settlement in “intangible” costs, lost earnings and stress.

With that in mind, I’d revise up by a big factor for a small co. Revise down for IBM, etc.

Any business with fewer than 50 people that goes through this is going to remember it, if they survive or not. That’s from experience!

[–]PoppinChlorine 23 points24 points  (0 children)

And we’re just talking dollars- the effect of sexual harassment cases in the workplace extends to company culture, use of company time, etc.

Strong fucking work.

[–]michael_wilkins 13 points14 points  (1 child)

how do you factor into loss of reputation to the company? Or the fact that are then forced to fire employee/s?

[–]red_philosopher 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I can't get strong average numbers for such things to include them. The article focused only on the settlement risk for the most part, so I stayed in that realm. It's hard to monetize an asset like "reputation".

[–]phoenix335 7 points8 points  (3 children)

What you're describing, if the calculation is right, is a low probability, high damage situation. "X happens rarely, but if X happens, it wipes out the farm." This is akin to fire, tornados etc., except against this risk, there's no insurance.

Imagine one in ten thousand m&m's were poisoned by a terrorist. Or one in a million, it doesn't matter. How many of them would you leisurely snack?

[–]BrickHardcheese 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You're assessment of the high risk/low probability situation is spot on. However, it is possible to purchase sexual harassment insurance.

(interesting note though, these policies do not cover the owners or executives)

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat 1 point2 points  (1 child)

To continue the thought experiment. Measuring depth by the loss of potential years to live, say 60 years, the one-in-a-million deadly m&m's, the loss expectancy per m&m's eaten is 60/1,000,000 or roughly comes down to 30 mins per m&m's.

Does this mean that every m&m's reduce your life expectancy by 30 mins. Of course not. Although it's really easy to wrongly interpret this way such silly statistical measure made only for the purpose of insurance.

[–]red_philosopher 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It is, though ALE/SLE is used to make managerial decisions on all sorts of things. It's used in managerial accounting, business impact analysis, security, insurance, etc. For a large publicly traded company, these numbers start to add up as they trend. If you have 50 female employees, the ALE implies you have about a 50/50 shot of seeing a lawsuit in 8-9 years. If you have 5000 female employees, you should basically see about 1 lawsuit a month on average.

For smaller companies that can't afford to absorb those losses, it may not be feasible to accept that risk, or transfer the risk to an insurance company.

[–]rogueman999 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That's average. But on a per industry basis, I'd guess the risk can be much more concentrated.

Plus, like OP said, it's an existential risk for a company. Looking at it like that, there's no reason not to try and limit it - just like backups and fire extinguishers.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 4 points5 points  (4 children)

It is estimated that ~90% of harassment doesn't get reported.

Estimated by who? And what definition of "harassment" ?

Each case averaged a cost of ~$200000 in damages/fees/etc. The annualized loss expectancy is $280 per female hired.

This is enough to destroy most startups. You don't average out risks like this that you can't afford - you stop them happening in the first place. That's a 0.14% of company destruction PER FEMALE HIRE. Hire 6 and you've got a 1% chance of bankruptcy that's easily avoided.

(the rate for men is ~0.036%).

I don't have the figures, but I'm pretty sure men are less successful and receive smaller payouts.

[–]okojofiveeyes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's really interesting to see broken down.

If you're big enough to self insure the risk seems marginal. If not, you're playing a high stakes lottery.

[–]RedPilledRoaster 191 points192 points  (134 children)

The thing that feminists forgot: most successful CEOs are male, and there will be backlash.

[–]TRP VanguardWhisper 330 points331 points  (58 children)

Feminists really don't understand the concept of backlash, because women really don't understand the concept of backlash.

Hell, the other day in RPW, I actually saw some clam ask, in all seriousness, if she could deal with the dating challenges of being a single mother by hiding the existence of her child from men she dates until later "when they are more committed".

It's not so much as if they think men are stupid. It's more that it doesn't occur to them that other people, male or female, have a thought process at all. That they are the only being in the universe that thinks, plans, or reasons, and everyone else is just a variety of wet clay.

Narcissistic personality disorder is almost impossible to diagnose in women, because it's indistinguishable from normal female behaviour.

[–]zyqkvx 114 points115 points  (2 children)

When she's scheming this thing she's picturing a year later her ken doll sitting on the front couch wearing a smile. She tells him she has kids and didn't know how to tell him. Ken doesn't move, "Why didn't you tell me sooner? Of course that doesn't change anything." Ken continues to be still and smile. He is not watching TV.

edit: I could make a TV show that could get me killed.

    Sad but true, but sometimes you don't realize it until they turn into bridezillas leading up to the big day - the fact that a wedding day is the most important day of a woman's life is a red flag all by itself.

    You're stating it as though she's crazy for believing it, but let's be real, there's tons of BP men who would put up with that shit.

    [–]2Overkillengine 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Hell even ones that are aware of what is going on will put up with it due to thirst + lack of better options. Having the knowledge is not the same as having the will to act on it.

    "...the other day in RPW, I actually saw some clam ask, in all seriousness, if she could deal with the dating challenges of being a single mother by hiding the existence of her child..."

    I saw that particular Summary Posting as well. A few women commenters chided her for deception, but my immediate thought was how does a woman's thought process allow her to see this as a possible avenue or approach in the first place...hiding a kid and then springing the news on a man when the relationship gets serious?

    How does that play out any other way than with immediate termination of the relationship?

      It's not like shit like that doesn't work everyday. Many people are risk averse. Heck I had to seriously talk a friend out of staying in a marriage with a single mother that she had slowly lied him into getting into. (he got the marriage annuled though, good for him. Ended up costing him "only" $4000.

      [–]kril89 5 points6 points  (4 children)

      Do explain this sounds like a decent story

      [–]Kinbaku_enthusiast 9 points10 points  (3 children)

      I'm going to give you the short version right now (I'll give you the long one tomorrow if you're still interested), because I'm about to go out dancing.

      So this guy was always really insecure and blue-pill. His parents probably even more so. He's a 3/10 for looks, but he's always been professional level athlete (though he looks like a scrawny, balding, weak-chinned dude, even if he is a killer).

      So whenever he had a girlfriend he would give her EVERYTHING. All his time, all his attention. I'd ask if he'd join an impromptu training on saturday and he'd say: "hmm let me think about it, I'll let you know tonight" and it really meant: "I'll ask my 2 month girlfriend if she'll allow it".

      So at some point our martial arts group had some serious politicking bullshit and we kinda lost touch for a while. Next time I talk to him on social media he's in motherfuckin Texas and about to get married (I'm in the Netherlands).

      So get this; over the months I learn about his situation. He's living with her, with her sister and her mother. She's got an adopted daughter of 6. His parents lend them about $2000 for a car and other things and he said they probably wouldn't be paid back.

      When he also starts to speak really nostalgically about training together I figured he must not be happy. Since we did have a good history prior to the politics blowup, I decided to invest some time to get to the bottom of things. I had just gotten out of my own problems with low-self worth and I recognized that he was doing the same thing; really not valuing his own desires, his own needs his own self-interest. I make it a project and spend about 60 minutes a week to get to the bottom of the thing.

      At one point he would come back to the Netherlands, he's been in texas for about 2 years and he's thinking about skipping the trip to the Netherlands. You see, you have to go back to renew your passport once in a while or you lose it altogether. She's trying to convince him not to go back to the Netherlands.

      This while their original plan was to get married and go to the Netherlands immediately.

      Apparently she's also staying illegally in the United States, as a mexican-jew. She doesn't trust him to go. He doesn't dare mistrust her. And I just slowly hammer at this. I didn't have enough proof to know she was lying about anything, but there was really no reason not to renew his Dutch passport. What's more, I could tell that subconsciously he thought she was lying. About a lot of things.

      I do have difficulty convincing him. At some point I find a Stefan Molyneux with a somewhat similar problem and share it with him. He got hooked and started watching a lot of Stefan Molyneux videos and kinda deprogrammed himself about believing lies.

      I also manage convince him that there is no reason not to renew his passport (I talked to his parents too, whom I knew before and they were really useless about the whole thing; worried, but also hallucinatingly hopeful).

      I really have to talk him step by step how to move forward.

      So I manage to wake him up slightly further when I see him in the Netherlands but he still has a lot of difficulty accepting that she may be lying about anything. (She was also supposedly in the army before, an artist for blizzard... all lies).

      Also, she got pregnant the day after he arrived in the Netherlands by him. And when he was back she had a miscarriage/end of pregnancy. That's when I had 0% doubt that she was a liar, but it still took some time for him to fully accept it.

      I told him he should play as if everything is alright and see if he can discover evidence for any of the lies.

      So he tries various things. At some point he goes to her facebook history. And of course. It's her kid. After this he hired a detective. She was having imaginary conversations on her phone with people that didn't exist. She actually did text messages to a kind of service that would respond back with: "Message not recognized". But of course her phone would vibrate. He took a photo of that. He recorded her saying that she was communicating with a person. He recorded her saying her daughter is adopted. He got proof for everything.

      Then he went to a lawyer and built the case. He was still of mind to do it kindly or halfheartedly, but I convinced him that this woman had stolen 2 years of his life with lies as well as love and money. Go full Trump: Make the distance between her cooperating and her not cooperating as big as possible. He did. Kinda makes a guy proud.

      While she had an inkling that something was going on, she wasn't sure what. At some point he suggested a date night, they went to a restaurant and he showed about half the proof and he said: "If we're going to continue our relationship we have to start fresh. Let's sign the annulment, take a 2 weeks break and then resume our relationship. If you do not sign the annulment, I will report you and your family as illegal and fight for every inch I can in court. I also know you don't know a lawyer like you have been claiming, you're faking it with your phone."

      She signed the annulment, he let her keep the stuff that was too big to send or sell (car/ laptop). He left Texas and hasn't returned.

      Marriages can be a pretty scary thing, especially if you've been taking care of a kid for a while. He got a good lawyer though and tons of proof AND was able to coerce her cooperation by dangling a continuation in front of her.

      Okay I told the whole story. Time to go dancing.

      [–]BewareTheOldMan 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      "Go full Trump: Make the distance between her cooperating and her not cooperating as big as possible."

      I like this...the "Art of the Deal" technique.

      "I will report you and your family as illegal and fight for every inch I can in court."

      "She signed the annulment"

      Hell of a story...and good work on looking out for your friend.

      [–]Kinbaku_enthusiast 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Thanks, it was nice to build some bridges; what I hadn't said is that I had been responsible for the stupid politicking and it affected him significantly. It was nice to have a chance to set things straigth.

      We look out for each other now. Workout erry day. Discuss redpill (he never visits this, but he's gotten quite redpill through conversations and I suppose the experience is quite a forceful redpill, particularly if you see how other people judge him for being nasty to her and such.)

      It has a pretty happy ending. He came back to the Netherlands. Started a business and is scraping by with chance for growth. Found a girl, a 28-yo virgin no less (she had a non-inheritable illness in her teens to early twenties). He's not plating, but I suppose if your goal is to have kids you have to try and build something with one. I try to keep him from making mistakes but he's open to hear it now and he looks out for me too.

      A buddy of mine got played off roughly the same way: Woman had 4 kids, he was too horny and believed the kids will eventually live with their father and she's chasing her ex for that.

      Guess what happened: She attacked his kid with a knife, among other things, while raging that he should sent the kid to live with its grandparents, all the while she expected to provide for the other kids that aren't his own.

      Lucky me I could hold my "I fucking told you" inside.

      Here's a clue-- If she thinks it's ok to park in the fire lane in front of the store while she runs in "real quick" because she's in a hurry, she might be incapable of thinking about other people--like the kids sitting uncomfortably in the car while she does so.

      Her needs in the moment trump all other needs. It's perfectly fine to endanger a building full of people because she's had a stressful day. This is NPD.

      This seems a common thing with mothers or single mothers.

      Just today I went to cross a zebra crossing (white striped bit of road in the UK - all vehicles are to stop for people walking across) and had to jump back because an mpv came flying down the road and just drove straight at me, and the other people on the crossing. Young female driving the car, with one of those "child on board" tags on the back. In the middle of an Asda (walmart) car park. https://i.imgur.com/bMCG8SP.jpg You can see it here.

      I call it "single mother syndrome".

      The same people who smack into you with their trolley or at times, use it to push you out the way.

      The same people who stop to use their phone in the middle of doorways.

      Exactly. But as @whisper pointed out, this behavior is indistinguishable from normal female behavior. That is what is truly scary about what our society has become in this regard.

      if she could deal with the dating challenges of being a single mother by hiding the existence of her child from men she dates until later "when they are more committed".

      This is what every single mom does. She's not the first genius to figure it out.

      I got a similar amazing response from a 25yo female on online chat recently when I mentioned the damage that sun exposure does to your skin, and she was amazed, she thought men didn't know anything about this sort of thing at all. I was like, you what?

      [–]_BITCHES_LOVE_ME_ 4 points5 points  (4 children)

      I had a woman pull that shit on me, except she was hiding an uncurable STD and not a kid. I never could figure out how she thought she was gonna get away with it.

      I guess you're right, she didn't think at all, obviously. Great observation, I haven't made that connection before.

      Yeah, I wasn't thrilled... I genuinely don't think she had any ill intentions though, I just chalk it up to female stupidity. I got off clean, told her off and left it at that.

      After a lot of experience I came to the realization, even before TRP, that women simply don't understand the principle of cause and effect.

      It was hard to grasp because as a logical being, cause and effect is in fact the foundation stone of all logical thinking, of plan making, of strategy including relationship and business strategy, heck of whatever you can think, "if I do A, B happens" is the staple. Like in, if you are always getting an outcome you don't want, just try different actions to try to achieve different outcomes. You know, kindergarten stuff.

      Well, women don't give two shits about cause and effect. Like, the rules reality operates by don't apply to them. Instead they operate strictly on wishful thinking, which means doing whatever they feel like and expecting the most favourable outcome for them.

      1. Empty sense of self.

      I suppose you are exaggerating as an expressive resource, but it is true that women are on average more narcissistic than men, measurably so.

      I often wonder if the cause is neurological or if women being more cuddled and pampered from birth than men leads them to develop this way.

      [–]harsheehorshee 30 points31 points  (6 children)

      Just finished my psychiatry rotation for medical school, and I'm afraid to say this is patently wrong. Men are higher risk demographically for anti social disorders and narcissistic personality disorders, women usually fall under histrionic or borderline personality disorder.

        I have had maybe 20 monogamous non married relationships in my life

        One of them was an extremely special breed

        Googling why she was certain extreme ways introduced me to the terms cluster B and NPD

        I viewed a checklist of ‘symptoms’ and thought “I have some of these, maybe I have npd”

        I showed a friend, he said “I have some of these maybe I have npd” and another the exact same

        Finally I showed my girlfriend, she refused to acknowledge she may have anything. Her view of herself needed to be so perfect she wouldn’t even consider that she may have npd

        I don’t think he was talking about the disorder, just the tendency to exhibit some of those behaviors in your personality.

        AFAIK, women on average score higher in narcissism than men. That does not mean that all of them are pathological. Or that there are no pathological narcissist men. Although it surprises me that there are more men diagnosed with borderline narcissism than women.

        [–]Modredpillschool 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        As a product of female hypo-agency as well as solipsism, they never have to deal with things like consequences when they are never agents, and they assume everybody's experience is the same because they are unable to comprehend that other experiences exist.

        The net result? Women continue acting like children until everything on the planet is ruined or men wise up.

          [–]beginner_ 16 points17 points  (1 child)

          I have a more pessimistic outlook. This backlash of not hiring women will only make the feminazis scream more about "patriarchy" and "inequality" and only confirm their world views. Since the already control the dialog, it will lead to quotas for smaller and smaller companies down to start-ups.

          Once in place, these laws will not get thrown out even when the basically kill of almost all start-ups. Why? Because it would admit that women are worse employees than men (and hence should actually be paid less).

          It's a self-enforcing downward-spiral. As long as laws are made by politicians that want to get reelected and judges that get elected or appointed by such politicians no one will dare to stand-up to feminism. (And no trump isn't and his power is also limited. He mostly focuses and making him and his buddies richer.) Ultimately this will get worse-and worse until enough men having nothing to lose which means riots and women now actually will need to be scared of going out alone, here they will feel the real backlash by getting beaten up, and ultimately revolution.

          [–]Sumshot 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          You can't fight evolution.

          First, the companies will try to find holes and ways to not hire women or if so, to make sure they can't do much harm and have as little influence as possible. Those companies who are unable to pull this of or at least worse at it, will be pushed off market fast, as long as customers buy the products with the best value for its price.

          But let's assume that laws and there enforcement are so good that companies have no ways and no choice. What happens is that other groups (here: countries) are going to be able to offer products much more cheaper. There is only two ways to prevent this: either control all the other countries and make them have the same rules. Or isolate from them. If the first one happens, well, that's it for us. The latter one, however, won't work. The difference between economics and technology will grow and grow and when it gets to big it starts to become hard to be isolated and not be controlled by the other country.

          Take a look at north korea. Let's see how this goes on because it is actually showing what will happen in the future.

            hiring discriminating by sex (likely reducing the competence level of their employees).

            Discriminating against women is unlikely to reduce the competence level of their employees. The net effect will likely be higher competence. So not only will companies that don't hire women have lower risk, they'll also perform better.

            And once that cycle is established, and the lobbyists walk in, you are never gonna change it.

            Plus they get pregnant and leave at any time. My work just got burned by this. Train someone, train for a month, then she gets prego and goes on paid leave then quits to watch the baby.

            [–]Endorsed ContributorMentORPHEUS 148 points149 points  (7 children)

            Happened to me when I hired the daughter of a family friend who I had known since she was a toddler. She claimed to want to go into my industry, and I made it my mission to fast track her into a position with a lucrative and portable skillset.

            After way more than a month of intensive mentoring, she announced that she was pregnant, quitting, never cared about the job, just worked long enough to qualify for public assistance, and planned the whole thing all along.

            Her extended family, my friends of over 15 years, knew all along too, thought nothing of it, and didn't understand why I would cut contact with the lot of them in the aftermath.

            It was a harsh lesson that there is NO depth of connection that a woman won't exploit, fuck over, and discard when it suits her goals according to Briffault's Law.

            Asides from the opportunity costs, what else did the company have to pay?

            [–]p_and_q 15 points16 points  (2 children)

            Training new employees is extremely expensive. Remember, while an employee is being trained, they are a net loss to the company. In addition, you can't fire an employee on maturity leave and you have to keep that position open while that employee is on leave. So now you've lost money from training, you have either a temp to permanent position that you need filled but would still have to train the new hire regardless.

            The cost of a bad new hire is the reason why many managers choose to keep mediocre employees that can do the job.

            [–]red_philosopher 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            You don't have to keep that exact position open, you just have to have a similar position available for when they return.

            [–]enkae7317 3 points4 points  (0 children)

            Considering training is usually paid and very expensive, I'd wager the company lost a LOT. You gotta pay the person AND allocate resources to train that person. That means the trainer is probably not working as fully as he should be at his original job tasks because he needs to constantly mentor the trainee.

              It's mindblowing the amount of women I know who work as teachers here in the US that happen to get pregnant with a due date in the middle of the school year. They have it figured out that if you have your kid in early spring, you get the standard maternity leave (paid) which then morphs into summer vacation. Voila! 7 months off! Kids in the classroom then suffer by getting a barely qualified substitute who doesn't give a shit for those final months.

              Islam currently struggles with feminism too, just in different ways we are not aware of. Iran's feminists and liberals are borrowing Western support, clearly with the intent to topple their own Patriarchal government. Lebanon is full-on feminist, some Muslims don't even consider them a "Muslim country". Jordan is 100% sucking Western cock, just look at their royal family. These "Muslims" are slowly becoming the new mainstream.

              I had beat out this immigrant butch irish lesbo woman for the job and she had a vendetta against me moving forward. I remember she asked me to lunch one day. "How nice" I thought. She sat me down and told me how several people had come to her and told her I said the only reason the company continued to sponsor her visa was because she was a woman. "Excuse me?" I said. "Who are these people who told you this?" "I can't tell you..." she said. It was downhill after that.

              I was ganged up on and scapegoated in brutal fashion. The power that feminist devil women have in the work place is the equivalent of giving a child a hand grenade.

                I imagine you could get creative with strategically hiring women or else throwing observers off the discrimination scent.

                It's not a blanket "zero women policy", but rather they wouldn't hire liberal college grads with degree's in bullshit. Those grads invariable plaster their feminist accomplishments all over their resume so it's easy to pick up on. Instead look to hire older married women with children who come off as more mature. Put them in places where they have little organizational impact, even if it's with a fancy sounding name. Something like "Records Enforcement Manager" who's responsibilities include maintaining the Corporate Records Policy and ensuring all Corporate documents are disposed of accordingly.

                Sounds important, it's just the person who comes along once a year during record cleanup.

                Maybe unrelated but

                is accurate nowadays?

                Women in Silicon Valley have no trouble finding high paying jobs because all the companies there hire for diversity purposes and not so much for merit. All the companies compete hard for them.

                eh, don't worry... I'm sure there will be a LAW that requires some sort of quota where women MUST be hired or else.

                There are plenty of countries that want reservation mandatory at least in the government. They've even tried to get into parliament on reservations, but at the top it's too brutal and performance based, so that's why very few even want to go there.

                This is true. There are companies that have policies dictating a male to female ratio, in every department. When I say male to female ratio, they don't care if there are more females, but just the fact that there should be a certain amount of females (equal or particular number) in any given department.

                I know for a fact that someone from a higher up in managerial position has it in their objectives to ensure there is a number of females that he MUST hire.

                [–]rorrr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

                It's not a quota, but if your company has tons of employees of one sex, it will be much easier for the opposite sex to build a discrimination case.

                Direct to the boardroom, right after college and that gender studies degree they have in hand. I'm sure it will be put on the books somewhere at some point.

                Cause and effect.

                Cause:

                • Women fuck around at work and are straight up incapable of heavy lifting, along with turning every one-person job into a two-person job, costing time and resources

                • Women actively insist that their air-conditioned office job is just as stressful and strenuous as that of a manual laborer

                • Women still cry injustice (and just cry period) because wage gap, even though that’s been disproven again and again

                • Feminists create a situation in which they hold a Sword of Damocles over the head of a CEO (and all senior leaders) if they encounter any difficulty real or perceived at work

                • Women openly gossip and bullshit while others are working, then claim misogyny and “problematic” treatment if any issue is raised, making them uncoachable at best

                • Women treat the workforce as a dual purpose service: as a dating pool to fuck attractive men, and to shore off basic job tasks to unattractive men

                • Feminists still push for every possible inch they can get at work until they’re more equal than everyone else, or until every woman is able to nuke a company with a shark attorney and the right amount of media attention — wait we’re already there

                Effect:

                • Men no longer want anything to do with women in the workplace, and see every female employee as a potential hazard

                The only thing I find suspect about the article is this very sentence, "As a corporate CEO, I have an fiduciary and moral obligation to my employees"

                As a CEO, your fiduciary duty is not to the employees, it is to the owners. I understand his point that as the company's CEO he wants to look out for his employees, but his sole fiduciary duty lies to those who own the company.

                That line just seemed a little fishy to me.

                [–]Jampak_5000 9 points10 points  (1 child)

                Yeah, the language used and the number of times he reminds us "as a CEO" seemed a little fishy.

                a lot of good stories are BOATS (based on a true story) - so I wonder what the actual truth is; probably CEO of a startup with 2 employees, him and 2 other guys, with no intention of hiring women currently. Probably knows of other companies that have been tanked by sexual harassment claims.

                The likelihood this person is a CEO of a blue chip listed company is next to 0.

                Overall is hits home and gets attention because there is truth in it, whether OP is exaggerating is well, very likely.

                [–]SKRedPill 13 points14 points  (5 children)

                Women are sollipsistic. When their feminine buttons are ramped up, they shift the focus of the entire space around to them and what they can see and feel at that moment. Their awareness of the long term, bigger picture is rather poor, but their adaptability in making their hamsters spin to whatever happens down the road is amazing.

                Again and again I've had so many discussions frustrated at home because women tend to never discuss to find the truth but only what they want. I stopped discussing most stuff with them at home for this reason. Women tend to be disruptive in goals that really are outside their sollipsistic frame.

                Most women are driven by the need to feel included and change the world to benefit them rather than the raw drive of the masculine to change the world with great achievements and benefit everyone. It's almost unheard of that men intentionally aim to do something at the expense of women (the times it actually happens is more of a tunnel vision problem than any deliberate thing) because that was a non issue till now.

                Good observation. "Thinking Ape" youtube channel gets into this sometimes. He often says grimly "You either love women, or you understand them."

                [–]Endorsed Contributorvandaalen 12 points13 points  (3 children)

                Don't try to understand women. Women understand women and they hate each other.

                I've also heard that e.g. female lobbyists have problems accessing politicians in Australia. Plus there are more and more company policies regarding no men and women going together on business trips which in the end disadvantages the women due to smaller numbers.

                metoo is divorce profiteering applied to corporations and celebrities. With much higher profit/damage potential the inevitable marriage/commitment strike will be even stronger for potential problem employees/celeb dates.

                It’s interesting that in these MeToo incidents the solution is Higher Power that obliterates eveything. Not “sort that shit out locally”. No consideration or responsibility for keeping the company going.

                I was accused of a woman from work of showing up to work in a bathrobe without clothes underneath. I do wear my bathrobe over my clothes on Sunday cuz fuck it it's Sunday and I'm pretty isolated and not customer facing.

                She had also accused me of following her around and using the women's restroom.

                Management looked into it, found out she was full of shit, and she went ape and got fired. No lawsuit required.

                I guess the point is you don't need to fear hiring women as long as management investigates claims.

                And if you're a man, just don't do anything that could potentially get you in trouble, it is a business after all and that demands professionalism

                Eh typically it’s the HB 5-7 range that’s the most dangerous. They still have a level of entitlement but aren’t quite “hot” so they need the extra attention and status signaling of being a sexually harassed or discriminated against woman.
