In my last post about HVAC, Eincrou provided us with a video of another job no woman will ever do, climbing to the top of 1700 foot tall transmission towers to repair them:

I liked the part in the video where he compared to a spacewalk in that you have to bring everything with you.  In this particular case, what this man had to bring was a 30 pound bag of tools.  That just solidifies that women will never be doing this job.

I also liked this comment on the youtube page:

Slowly..every day… the tower bends a little from the weight of these two men’s massive balls

This is type of job like HVAC that as far as women know are done by transmission tower fairies.  Just like with HVAC as men do only the required minimum to survive expect anything dependent on transmission towers like TV, radio, cell phones, etc. to stop working.  If you want to prevent this, then you need to do some real work to fight feminism.

  1. let’s go galt and see how long the ladies can hold out without this technology.

    • Galt founded his own community. How do you propose keeping the wimminz out? There are already communities whose infrastructure is built by men – the societies we live in now.

  2. A short while ago during the summer, there was a news program on the tube that showed how the companies who build and maintain these towers (usually via subcontractors) are so backlogged and in such a rush to get them built, they are essentially forcing the workers (all men) to go up on these towers without the necessary safety equipment and harnesses if they are not already present (the company’s attitude — “if you don’t go up on that tower, I’ll fire you and hire someone else who will”).
    Since these guys have bills and mortgages to pay, they go up — sometimes they make it back down safely, but it just takes one misstep and you’re dying a horrible death.
    Needless to say, there have been many deaths from falls from these towers.

    I empathize with these guys — during my career in the Navy, I had to ‘go aloft’ yearly as part of my job to do maintenance on my system’s radio antennas (I was on three different ships that had these systems) . But at least the Navy had strict guidelines and procedures we had to abide by — and which were not to be violated.
    BTW — although I don’t mind being in aircraft, I HATE being at the top of tall ladders! (As long as I have something solid under my feet, I’m okay.)

  3. Looked at from another perspective, these jobs are the last possible ‘male space’. I work as a tradesman, to be honest, this is one of the things I’m thankful for. The pay is good, you’ll never be out of work if you choose the correct trade, and you form an appreciation for what it is to be a man. Men are good people.

    • I like working in the software field for similar reasons, but as you know STEM is under attack by feminism. Right now we have Obama trying to apply Title IX to STEM jobs.

      I have speculated that sooner or later feminists will declare war on the trades. Any mostly male or all male space will get attacked by feminists sooner or later. We will see some attempt to apply Title IX to the trades, but it will be an even bigger failure than than trying to apply Title IX to STEM. (After all, no woman is going to climb to the top of a 1700 foot broadcast tower.) Feminists are too stupid to realize that they would be shooting themselves in the foot by declaring war on the trades.

      • You’re wrong PMAFT, they wouldn’t be shooting themselves in the foot; they’d be shooting themselves in the head. When it comes to them going after the trades, I say bring it on.

        The fact is that there are plenty of female tradies out there right now expected to pull the same weight as a male tradie on the job. The female tradies who are out there (as they always have been – going right back to the days of the guilds I might add) have generally broken free of gynocentrism by at least a short time of working in the job. Let’s face it, you have to when you’re working in a role which requires a person deemed “disposable”.

        The reason feminism has made such inroads into the workforce and still managed to promote female infantalisation is because of modern science and technology. As modern technology and science have made certain work far more safe, those fields have entered the sphere for what is safe under female infantalisation, making male disposability no longer necessary in those fields. Furthermore as men in society are only valued for their disposability, it has made men no longer necessary.

        The fact is, that when you look deeply enough at it, feminism is merely a predictable bi-product of female infantalisation being able to exist in an increasingly larger sphere and the sphere of necessity for male disposability proportionately decreasing. However the nature of gynocentrism is exactly what it was 200 years ago.

        It’s for that reason I’d welcome it. The moment feminism exposes women to female disposability is the moment that women are no longer infantalised and the entire gynocentric system ruling our society starts to break down (I’d say collapse like a house of cards but I’m far less naive and idealistic as I used to be). There is very little “safe” factor in trades- particularly when you get to dangerous industries (including working on transmission towers and high voltage work) and there is very little to hide behind when it comes to the dangerous jobs.

        If some hypocritical laws were thrown into TITLE IX however, it would merely make the feminist imperative look even more hypocritical, to the point where I’m not sure how many people who are blind now, could continue to be. Such a move, would not only severely wound feminism, but with a bit of luck (as well as tradconsism, as the tradcons would expose themselves as feminist enablers in invariably defending such legislation) provide a decent opening to go after gynocentrism itself and expose it as the real enemy to men’s issues.

  4. My heart skipped a beat just WATCHING this! I’m in awe…

  5. How do you find a job doing this? Hell I would do it, im sure they make dam good money.

    • I did research on these guys, and they only make $15-$20 an hour. AFIAC, they should earn double or triple that, but that’s what my research turned up…

  6. The height of the towers isn’t even the riskiest thing about them, and in fact in terms of the most dangerous part of the job, the towers are no more dangerous than working on satellite dishes on the roofs of houses.

    That’s because the falls aren’t the most lethal part of working on transmitters. A fall will mess you up big time from high enough, but depending on the distance, it’s possible to survive it.

    On the other hand, some idiot accidentally turning the power back on when you’re working on a broadcast antenna and you’re an instant TV dinner (severe surface and internal microwave radiation burns), and I’d rate someone’s chances of being turned into a human TV dinner far lower than someone who’s had a major fall.

    It’s highly telling that a documentary dealing with the risks the job entails, would leave out the biggest risk to the job of all.
