Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri - Wikiquote
SEX is often that chip because its an easy one we are all equipped with by birth! And you can bet your pay check you can see it in play in everyday life. Advertising abuses the hell out of sex to market their goods. Sex is a huge manipulation tool in so many areas of our lives. We will not fix one thing unless we decrease the importance of sex as an influence in our choices and increase the importance of INTELLECT dare we use this word rarely ever used in any of these discussions!
Tell a female scientist staring into some bacteria that her sex has something to do with her achievements and she will give ya the middle finger! She should! She is there because she used her intellect. This is hypothetical but it does exist. She may indeed be a very sexy woman!
There is definitely many many more examples of women who DO NOT either throw away their sexual attractions or compromise their intellect with sexual prowess in order to achieve success. Bottom line is sex played no part of that persons career and achievements. We are very sexual animals and i think on both sides of the genders we enjoy that exchange a great deal. However like any experience we must act responsibly and recognize what is priority. We simply must address the abuse of sex and use of sex as a tool and vice rather than as a personal enhanced experience between to consenting parties.
Sexual abuse isnt just between males and females. Its between males and males and females and females. So, in some sense he is not permitted even to look at her, and he is supposed to be responsible for her feelings which he has nearly no ability to understand. B He cannot permit himself to be in a meeting, dinner, or car that has just himself and some one woman or girl. D In a work management hierarchy, he does not want to report to a woman or have any women reporting directly to him.
He wants to avoid any communications with any woman for any reason. Broadly, he wants to make sure he never gives any woman or girl a chance to make a MeToo accusation. With MeToo, in the world of work or in public, any prudent man has to regard any woman or girl as an unpredictable, dangerous poisonous snake able and too ready to give him a fatal bite at any time for any reason or no reason.
Then a prudent man will advise all women and girls in his immediate family to defend themselves: A If a man flirts, then just be nasty; in flirting, men want to get back a smile; if they get back something nasty, then they will usually stop. B For more serious situations, have some blunt, defensive comments. C In risky environments, be with trusted friends, men or other women or girls. D For an actual attack, bite, scratch, kick, scream, use pepper spray, a knife, or even a gun.
Oh, please. All a man has to do is behave in the workplace the same way he does at a family Thanksgiving dinner, or in church. How hard is that? I agree with you, the current witch-hunt energy has gone way too far. But none of this hysteria is being directed at men who treat women as people, not as women. To be safe, even the Pence Rule is not nearly strong enough. Bluntly, a LOT of men just will be sure not to hire women, try not to have them in the office, just have nothing to do with any women at all for any reason except for women in their immediate family.
I outlined the solution: A On a real attack, a woman or girl should fight back and draw blood to leave evidence and then follow legal due process. B For less than an actual attack, she should use common, non-violent means, e. She expected something else? In the US legal system with due process, a man has some protections. There you have me suspected, accused, tried, convicted, sentenced, and punished knowing nothing about me except that I seem to be a man.
So, no way should I ever be within 20 feet of you. My experience is that there are so many such women that with MeToo and the media men are at severe risk even from women they have never been within 20 feet of and have never had any personal communications. As a result, a lot of prudent men will treat all women and girls outside their own immediate families as poisonous snakes with a fatal bite.
At least I think you were joking I should spank my sister…. So, sit her down and give her some guidance. Maybe at the end, give her a swat on her back side not for pain but for some humiliation and an indication of the seriousness of the issue. If she is your younger sister, then you may have to make a hard decision, do the responsible thing, and be good to her.
Rule 3: If you break Rules 1 and 2, women have the right to get angry. Rules I can certainly live with. Especially three. The world works better when we all stand up for ourselves and respect others for the same. LOL — after offering her your wise guidance. Last argument I had with my sister I got socked in the face. That was fourteen years ago. We agree on everything now. I have sparred in self defence classes and can take a hit, but she hit me as hard as she could!
That was of course the end of the argument cause I left. What can a man do? Any man or boy Can opt to alter behavior, as it does work. Same goes for women. If given a chance and is taught assertiveness. AND when the two can discuss disagreements rationally, the problems go away.
Nice if we all Could. Girls are not raised to defend themselves using rational assertiveness. My main point here is just the threat to men from MeToo. Your rules are fine but in this context are irrelevant: MeToo has no real due process, and that means that any woman can do a MeToo attack on any man, no matter how perfect, for any reason or no reason. Actually, it sounds like you break those rules pretty much non-stop. You were certainly telling Ed it is his duty to break them too. Dude, seriously!
Tough as it is to find, evidence is required. Your sexist attitude to women is right here in that post. No man has a right to hit a woman. At all. End of discussion. No exceptions. Same as no woman has a right to hit a man or a woman. The fact you would even post such nonsense as to guide someone to hit their sister tells me and anyone with half a brain exactly what you think about women. Women are not going to start accusing men who have done nothing wrong of having done so.
Look, I tried: She was brilliant. So were her sisters and their mother. Women can do things, too.
Bosses beware: She's just not that into you
I want a career. That was about the end for her: She continued on and with life threatening stress got her Ph. Her mother and sisters were nearly as bad. When her father was alive, he was the strong leader in the house. His wife guided the daughters and had them booked solid about 90 hours a week.
The daughters hardly had a minute of freedom and were on a track and thrilled to be getting praise from their father. There really are some women who actually can do what the current norms suggest should be the case. But what I observed from neighbors, etc. For some big evidence of a big problem, the birth rate is so low we are going extinct, literally. Well, I tried that.
I have to believe that the situation was, net, better. Firstly one example does not represent the whole. Secondly to your example of women needing leadership. I highly doubt any of that is true. Your posts tell all of us what you think of women and in doing so it makes it plainly clear that you will write anything to try and make women seem childlike, incompetent and in the need of a more powerful, more intelligent and more logical male to make the decisions.
Although I will be attacked here by people who would rather attack than either read or think, I will do you a big favor and explain your problems to you. You just massively misread what the heck I wrote. You have no good excuse: What I wrote is plenty clear, rational, well supported, and reasonable. If you are as rational as you appear to believe, then, fine. You are one of the small fraction of lucky ones. But from 1 there is some doubt here. Your being uninformed is dangerous because you are wide open to being fooled by reality and, then, causing a lot of harm for others if even not for yourself.
If those views are correct for you, then terrific — again, you are one of the very lucky ones. But if young people go into the real world with your attitudes, then they stand to encounter some really big problems, ones that can easily ruin their lives. But they are the lucky ones. Again, ignoring the strong and very common although not quite universal gender differences is being dangerously wrong.
In particular, if you send a son into the real world believing in your minimal gender differences, then the odds are high that he will have seriously wrecked life. Instead, if he wants a wife where gender differences are minimal, then he will have to look very, very carefully with a lot of insight that your attitudes will deny him.
This equality of the genders stuff makes good pop culture and maybe good politics, but it is wildly risky for a good life. There is also a lot of rock solid science that, in short, says with overwhelming strength that boys and girls are very different. For the rest of the conclusions about patterns and how to apply this stuff in real life, you will have to make your own decisions.
The social science is mostly not good enough to avoid a judgment call. But I would warn young men: That young woman you are planning to spend your life with is likely now or within 10 years mostly a lot of hormones that drive a lot of emotions that are aimed at reproductive advantage and being cared for and where rationality is commonly overwhelmed. Sure, she will retain plenty of rationality on subjects far from her core femininity; e. So, e. Eventually her husband may have to conclude that she is pursuing her security more from social climbing than from him and their marriage.
Social climbing is rationally a very poor way to do well on the K account, but that rationality can be overwhelmed by the thrill of rubbing shoulders with the wealthy elites. You are begging for a huge pile of just awful trouble for all your children if not for yourself. Collecting some solid evidence for your opinions, doing some legitimate homework, all would help open your eyes and build credibility among the rest of us.
Sounds exactly like the fake story they told women before they fought for and got The Right To Vote that men had had for Seventy Years. A democracy. How silly. A fake story about women who reluctantly report that they too, along with the thousands of others, have been harassed endlessly, stalked, groped shockingly or raped , etc, and cry out for justice: Please make him stop. Afraid of the result of their own slimy actions against women-as-objects to be bullied?
Do you believe that anyone should bully , such as rape, anyone else and that should not be legally adjudicated fairly? I worry about the many rapes Unreported due to fear of social condemnation that She brought it on herself though she did plead NOnono. Would you please google MeToo and read how many women have experienced soul-scorching sexual bullying invarious ways?
Just put yourself in her place as she is treated to violation as a piece of garbage7. Sandy, I had to learn, too slowly, too late, that boys men, here and below and girls women, here and below are different and in particular girls tend to be afraid, a lot like a fluttering little bird. Commonly be with one or more of your girlfriends.
Be with a man you can trust. If a boy says some inappropriate things, then use your no doubt excellent abilities to return a nasty look, word, remark, etc. Get some evidence, then call a lawyer, the police, a friend, go to a hospital emergency room, etc. And yet, right now, the reaction to the MeToo movement has moved rapidly into the realm of witch-hunting.
I fear that this will end up by blurring and discrediting the valid, serious problems women face in the workplace. I was thrilled at the outing of Harvey Weinstein, because that was someone who had grossly abused his power over all the women in his industry. Sexual justice is being diluted by militant prudery.
Consequences are being imposed with no attempt at rational judgment or a fair hearing. Surely I am not the only person to have noticed that hardly any of this hysteria is being directed against right-wingers, even though I know from personal experience that they are every bit as abusive as normal people, and probably more. Such an astounding claim needs some good data with good references. As I indicated, I also doubted that the claim was true. Then I asked for some data and references on that claim. He merely said that some women would permit such from powerful men.
On this point, he was likely correct and was giving some good mentoring to the Bush kid. There was an NBC interview, and she wrote a book. And, men should learn insight into why they feel free to insult sexually and verbally. Since more women are in the workplace and some getting promoted, it seems necessary that both re-negotiate for equal understanding, equal treatment so that relationships and personal effectiveness become healthier than they are now.
That was my situation with the prettiest female I ever saw, in person or otherwise. I was and she was Eighteen months, hours alone together, lots of romantic evidence, but we never kissed. Likely her mom and lots of women told her that. I was in love with her.
