For the holiday weekend, a relaxing screed from a wimminz upset that over half of male managers have, shall we say, bought into the myth of toxic feminism.
Sad survey: 60% of male managers are “uncomfortable” working around women
By Melissa Locker, 17 May 2019
LeanIn.org and SurveyMonkey just released the results of a survey on the state of men and women interacting in the workplace in the age of #MeToo. The results are frustrating. The data reveals that 60% of male managers say they are uncomfortable performing common workplace activities such as mentoring, working one on one, or socializing with a woman. That’s a 32% increase over last year.
Emphasis hers. I don’t really know what to make of that survey. Men will lie rather than upset a female or admit to a vaguely-worded crime so that number would ordinarily be lower than the real value. If 60% is low, however, then why are women still being hired by any Y chromosome for anything? I can believe a partisan-parasite organization such as LeanIn.org is simply lying for short-term advantage but doing so is the same thing as stating “are men are evil, get rid of them.” Not a good sympathy ploy.
Either way, da wimminz are more upset today than yesterday that their red carpet ride into the corner office is being stymied by men noticing the #MeToo pattern of “don’t hit me, I’m just a helpless girl victim” coming from the same person as “he rayyyped me 25 years ago and I just now remembered because I want his job!”
To add insult to insult, senior-level men who were surveyed are now far more hesitant to spend time with junior female colleagues than junior male ones, across a range of basic work activities. The men were 12 times more likely to hesitate to have one-on-one meetings, nine times more likely to hesitate to travel with a junior woman for work, and six times more likely to hesitate to have a work dinner with a junior woman.
Work dinner? One-on-one? What kind of corporate culture is this? Sales? Journalism? I’ve had half a career by now, not counting two other careers that didn’t take off, and in every one getting after-dinner drinks in an intimate setting was simply not a part of reality.
That means the many, many women in this world who are just trying to do their jobs and make progress in their careers are being stymied by men who are terrified of being, I dunno, unable to control themselves while talking to a woman in the conference room.
Ah, sweet oblivious narcissistic hamsterbation.
It’s an infuriating addition to the challenges that women already face in the workplace, adding to their emotional labor by making sure their male bosses feel comfortable interacting with them alone and at those all-important work socialization events.
Office slut: Boss, honey, you seem tense. Why don’t we undress a little? Have some wine? No witnesses, of course. It’s unpaid emotional labor for me but I don’t have any actual skills because you won’t spank me. I mean, mentor me.
Male Manager: TENSE TENSE OHMIGAWD DON’T FALSELY ACCUSE MEEEE!
The dynamic basically foists the burden of making men feel comfortable on to women, who already get paid less money than their male counterparts and may retire poorer at the end of their work lives.
Women are upset at men for the additional work of reassuring male coworkers that she’s not about to destroy their lives on a whim.
While male managers may feel like they are insulating themselves in the age of #MeToo, cutting off women’s access to mentoring and access to senior-level managers is just another form of discrimination and sexism.
Good job, wimminz! Doubling down on veiled threats is a great way to force high-status men to be comfortable around you and teach you to replace them. Keep up the pressure! They will crack soon, never mind the trends!
If that weren’t frustrating enough, the survey also reveals that sexual harassment remains pervasive in the workplace, with 57% of women reporting that they’ve experienced some form of sexual harassment in the workplace. Men and women don’t agree as to who is more affected by harassment.
Probably because men are the exclusive targets of sexual harassment accusations.
MGTOW is quickly becoming no longer a choice, but a necessity for continued existence.
