A mangina tried to answer the question of whether feminists/SJWs want women to be equal to men or be a protected class.  As can be expected the mangina twists himself into knots to avoid giving a clear answer to that question to the point where he seriously compares women to the disabled:

You may still need accommodations to function in society that others do not require. That doesn’t mean that you’re unequal any more than a disabled person is a second-class citizen for needing a ramp.

For the purpose of this post, I’m going to set aside how vile it is and insulting to disabled people to compare the average healthy woman to a disabled person.  This mangina is saying that being female is a (permanent) disability.  Thus he’s arguing that women will always need special accommodations forever.  By doing so this mangina is really saying that women are MORE disabled than disabled people because eventually technology will exist that will fix every disability out there.

I anticipate that we will see more of this “women are disabled” argument.  It may be argued implicitly or explicitly, but feminists will latch on to it to defend all the special privileges women have.  It will get to the point where you will see an able bodied woman telling a man with no legs in a wheelchair why she is the one who is really disabled.

There is a phenomena known as the uncanny valley. It’s an aesthetic phenomena, typically seen in 3D computer animation and robotics, where a person has a negative reaction to something that looks similar a person or acts similar to a person. What happens is that a person notices slight differences between how something that looks or acts like a person and how an actual person would look or act. What is interesting about the phenomena is that it happens only with something that looks or acts close to a person. Something that clearly does not look like or act like a person does not generate that reaction. This graph shows how the uncanny valley phenomena only starts to appear when something gets close to looking like or acting like a person.

When it comes to reviews of VR sex that I have seen, there has been no one complaining of anything that could be caused by the uncanny valley despite that VR sex is in its infancy.  I don’t just mean reviews like this one from the MGTOW subreddit.  Even more “mainstream” reviews of VR sex like this one or this other one that Anon pointed out don’t either.

While it is possible that the uncanny valley for VR sex hasn’t been reached yet, I don’t think it matters if that is true.  Part of the appeal of VR sex (for heterosexual men) is that you don’t have to deal with the usual female bullshit.  This could be the one case where the uncanny valley could be used as a selling point in the marketing of VR sex.  The women in VR sex aren’t exactly like real women, and that’s a good thing.  If VR sex is on the other side of the uncanny valley then none of this matters.  If not, then it becomes a plus in its favor.  Either way, VR sex will be viable product soon.

An anonymous commentor brought to our attention that the UN is making a push towards mandatory paternity leave.  The key word there is mandatory.  The UN is not saying that businesses that can afford it may want to consider offering paternity leave or that men should have the choice of taking paternity leave if offered.  The UN is explicitly saying that men must be forced to take paternity leave because maternity leave oppresses women due to the fact that maternity leave creates an incentive for businesses to hire men.  The UN has admitted that the only way for men and women to be equal at work is to “handicap” men.

This is not the only case where it is suggested that men need to be “handicapped” in the workplace.  At the Good Mangina Project, which recently has become the Scared Shitless of Donald Trump All The Time Project, a feminist discovered that one of the reasons for the so called wage gap was that men work more hours. This immediately becomes that women are being oppressed by men working “too many hours” because it creates an incentive to hire men.  Again, the solution is to “handicap” men when it comes to working.

I chose the word “handicap” for a reason because what we are seeing is the prequel to Harrison Bergeron.  (For those of you who are unfamiliar with Harrison Bergeron, it is a science fiction short story about a future America where anyone of above average intelligence, strength, etc. has to be handicapped to the lowest common denominator.  For example, anyone who was more intelligent than a moron would be “handicapped” by implants that prevent that person from mentally concentrating.)  Feminists are treating Harrison Bergeron as a how to guide.  Right now, they are trying to “handicap” men by throwing roadblocks in their work and careers by forced paternity leave and forced limits on how much we can work.  When that fails to bring men down to the level of women, the next step will be to try to force men to use the “handicaps” that are described in Harrison Bergeron.  Of course, this will lead to the worst economic depression in history, but feminists will just blame that on men.

GitHub is going to die soon in what is likely to be a massive explosion.  Coraline Ada Ehmke, the June 2015 Entitlement Princess of the Month, is going to work at GitHub on “community management” and “anti-harassment tools”.  I anticipate “community management” means running off men and anyone else who does actual work and that
“anti-harassment tools” means find new ways to attack men.  It can’t have anything to do with actual harassment since no one has provided any evidence (much less even made the claim) that harassment is a problem at GitHub.

We already have a preview of what life will be like at GitHub with Ehmke employed.  Someone put an issue into ContibutorCovenant repository requesting that Ehmke end her association with Shanley Kane, the March 2015 Entitlement Princess of the Month, for her misandrist tweets.  This should remind you of #OpalGate since the same reasoning is being used here.  However, there is an important difference.  With #OpalGate, discussion of the issue was allowed.  Ehmke didn’t do that.  She just immediately censored any discussion of the issue.  Based on this, we can assume that GitHub will become a virtual police state and will start bleeding employees who want to escape the insanity.  It is guaranteed that there will several class action lawsuits against GitHub by employees that become the victims of Ehmke.  I don’t know when GitHub will shut down, but it is likely to be quick and sudden.

There is one good thing about this.  It shows the power and necessity of distributed systems.  Since git, the software behind GitHub is distributed, there are local copies of a user’s repositories on their computers.  Even if GitHub shuts down all of a sudden, the repositories are saved and can still be moved to a new git server.  Ehmke can destroy GitHub, but she can’t destroy the software created with it.

Men are being accused of sexually harassing virtual assistants like Siri and Cortana.. To call this nonsense would be an insult to regular plain old nonsense. A virtual assistant is nothing more than a computer program that makes sounds that approximate a female (or male) voice. It is no where near an artificial intelligence so a virtual assistant can not be considered a person under any circumstances. What really proves that this is BS is that no one has talked about a virtual assistant with a male voice being sexually harassed.

I predict that the next thing in this vein will be feminists accusing men of raping virtual assistants. That makes even less sense than virtual assistants being sexually harassed but this will happen. We are lucky that there is an easy way to avoid being accused of raping your virtual assistant. Only use a virtual assistant with a male voice. Feminists will still accuse you of being a misogynist for using a male voice in your virtual assistant, but they will accuse you of being a misogynist regardless of what you do.

Feminists continue their war on Article 3 and the Sixth amendment to the US Constitution.  This time several women sued the University of Tennessee for “violating Title IX”, creating a “hostile environment” for women, and using “an unusual, legalistic adjudication process that is biased against victims who step forward”.  How did the University of Tennessee do all these things?  By following due process:

The plaintiffs say that UT’s administrative hearing process, which is utilized by public universities across the state, is unfair because it provides students accused of sexual assault the right to attorneys and to confront their accusers through cross-examination and an evidentiary hearing in front of an administrative law judge.

The University of Tennessee shouldn’t even be doing what they’re doing now.  Dealing with alleged crimes is the job of the criminal justice system, but at least in Tennessee, they realize that due process doesn’t end when a person steps on to a college campus. 

I don’t know what the result of this lawsuit will be, but the existence of this lawsuit proves that feminists are trying to take a big dump on the Constitution.  No matter what happens, more people will be woken up to the fact that many women have no problem with totalitarianism and that feminism is totalitarianism.  If this lawsuit is successful, I imagine the next lawsuit of this nature will be a bunch of women suing a university for not providing immediate summary executions of men they find ugly.

There was this study done called “Gender Bias In Open Source: Pull Request Acceptance Of Women Vs. Men“.  This study did not show any bias in open source software.  The study analyzed the rate of acceptance from what an automated program thought were male and female contributors to open source projects on GitHub.  It also separated the contributors between “insiders” (people who have contributed to a particular open source project on GitHub before) and “outsiders” (people who have not contributed to a particular open source project on GitHub before).  The closest thing to bias against women the study could find was that male “outsiders” had a rate of acceptance of 64% whereas female “outsiders” had an acceptance rate of 63%.  That’s just statistical noise.  One thing in the study that isn’t getting talked about much is that female “insiders” have a higher acceptance rate than male “insiders”.  If you’re interested in all the details, Scott Alexander has a breakdown of it (including the other problems in the study).  It is also worth pointing out that this was an undergraduate study that was not peer reviewed.

Obviously, this study failed to show any bias against women in open source software.  However, that didn’t stop various media outlets from saying that men in tech are supervillians bent on oppressing women.  Here are some examples:

That last link even says, “a vile male hive mind is running an assault mission against women in tech“.  Then, immediately afterwards, the article brings up #GamerGate and includes the standard litany of lies against #GamerGate.  Obviously, there is no such thing as “a vile male hive mind”, but this is the type of propaganda that is being used against men working in tech.  It is not an exaggeration to compare this to anti-semetic propaganda because pretty much all anti-semetic propaganda describes all Jews being part of “a vile Jewish hive mind”.  In fact, I’m certain if you searched enough anti-semetic literature, you would find that exact phrase.  The phrase even belongs on the MenKampf reddit due to its similarity with anti-semetic propaganda.

No one should be surprised that men working in tech are starting to have reactions like this:

As a nerdy straight white male programmer, that fact that people like me are constantly being propagandized against by the media is getting pretty wearisome. Add in the apparent surge of support for socialism among the young and it’s getting downright frightening.

If I was an American I’d be thinking about buying a gun and at least having a backup plan in mind to escape the revolution, as paranoid as that might sound.

This sounds like good advice especially if you’re a man working in tech in San Francisco.

Yahoo is being sued by a MALE former employee who is accusing the company of discriminating against him on the basis of his sex. Looking at the facts, it’s clear that he (and other men) are being discriminated against for being men.  Despite the facts, I don’t expect this lawsuit to be successful, but the results of the lawsuit won’t matter to Yahoo.  Yahoo is already in a death spiral, and getting rid of their male employees is only making things worse.

This lawsuit is a public announcement for men to avoid working at Yahoo if Yahoo is hiring.  It also gives Yahoo’s male employees more motivation to find a new job (if they weren’t aware already that Yahoo is a misandrist hell hole on the verge of collapse.)  Yahoo won’t be able to replace the men who are leaving or laid off with women who are equally as productive as the men.  It’s time to start a death watch for Yahoo.  The only reason that Yahoo has survived this long was that it made an investment in Alibaba several years ago.  If Yahoo hadn’t did that, Yahoo would have already shut down.

Since today is Veterans’ Day, let’s talk about our men serving in the military, specifically the case of Tech Sgt. Aaron D. Allmon II.  He had served in Iraq and Afghanistan before being transferred to Minot Air Force Base. While deployed, he endured a spinal injury and ended up with PTSD due to what he witnessed. The PTSD also resulted in depression and nightmares. Allmon’s spinal injury also caused problems with his bladder.

While Allmon was at Minot AFB, he got accused of sexual harassment by multiple women.  In the first case, a woman accused him of hitting on her after Allmon got into a dispute with her over a work product.  The rest of the accusations are all women who say that Allmon did nothing but hit on them (and it looks like that didn’t even happen).  As absurd as that is, the reaction of top brass at Minot AFB is on a whole different level.  Their response was to try to court martial him where Allmon could face 130 years in prison.  Additionally, they tried to deny Allmon medical treatment.  They tried to block Allmon from getting a PTSD diagnosis because it would make him look sympathetic during the court martial.  They also tried to prevent Allmon from being transferred to other facilities for treatment.  Fortunately, this failed because it turned out Allmon needed emergency back surgery, and he got the surgery he needed.

This type of problem isn’t the only thing that men serving in the military need to worry about.  Family courts believe they can ignore the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act which requires a minimum 90 stay in civil cases for anyone serving in the military.  If we continue to treat our servicemen like this, pretty soon no man will choose to serve in the military for good reason.  Or we will end up with a military dictatorship when a general or generals decide that this sort of thing has to be stopped for the good of the country.

The conspiracy theory that the moon landings were a hoax is still around. Sooner or later it will get new life from feminists.

One reason there is a feminist war on space exploration is that it produces tangible masculine achievements with the involvement of nerdy men that feminists hate.  One example of this is how feminists tried to scrub the Wikipedia on the moon landings to say “crewed” instead of “manned” even though manned is a gender neutral term.  It’s important to remember than no women have ever been on the moon, and the feminist attempt to edit the Wikipedia page on the moon landings shows how much feminists hate it when a man does something without women.

The most common way feminists have attacked space exploration by saying that the money spent on space exploration should be spent “here on Earth”.  (That’s a euphemism for spending money on women.)  This may have worked somewhat when space exploration was primarily a government venture, but even that was limited because space exploration produces knowledge, technologies, and tangible benefits.  Feminist whining won’t work for private space exploration.  A man like Elon Musk will not be deterred by such complaints so feminists will have to step up their attacks on space exploration.

This is where moon landing conspiracy theories come in.  Since feminists have failed to shut down space exploration with the lie that it is a waste of money, the next step for feminists is to falsely accuse space exploration of being a complete fraud.  Moon landing conspiracy theories give feminists the vehicle to do that.  Also, since space exploration has been a primarily male endeavor, they can accuse NASA of being a masculine conspiracy to defraud the government. Feminists have already lied about space exploration such as how The Good Men project lied about a single NASA probe costing trillions of dollars when it only cost $700 million. From there it is not a stretch for feminists to use the lies from moon landing conspiracy theories, especially since only men have been to the moon.

It’s a safe assumption that the moon landing conspiracy theorists are manginas so they will welcome feminists with open arms.

There’s a new twitter hashtag out there called #PissForEquality.  Feminists are now pissing in their pants to show solidarity with rape victims who may have incontinence issues.  I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP.  Here are some examples:

There are some more examples at this link, but it is NSFW.   While #PissForEquality was started by 4chan to troll feminists, it’s disturbing how quickly feminists started pissing in their pants without questioning whether it was a good idea.  Some feminists are now using the hashtag, #PissOnPatriarchy.  I guess that is so they can piss in their pants even more.  Why would feminists want to piss in their pants?  Feminists have also argued that potty training oppresses women.  (Check the link.  It’s not a joke.)  When you know that feminists consider potty training to be oppression it makes sense that they would use any excuse to piss in their pants.  4chan had no idea what they were unleashing by trolling feminists in this manner.

You should have no trouble identifying feminists who #PissForEquality.  That’s because it’s practically a guarantee that they don’t take showers either.  It isn’t due to feminists being lazy (although that’s part of it).  Many feminists will want to keep the stink from pissing in their pants so that men will avoid them.  It’s just like how some feminists are using farts to keep men away from them.

I wasn’t surprised by feminists embracing #PissForEquality, and if you are a long time reader of this blog, you won’t be either.  I have been documenting how filthy (and feral) women have become.  There are even examples on TV of women pissing in their pants such as Snooki from MTV’s Jersey Shore a few years ago. (When Snooki wasn’t pissing in her pants, she pissed outside like a pet.) And it’s not limited to pissing. In response to the Jersey Shore example a few years ago, Slagmire gave us this example of filthy women:

I became friends with one of my university janitors recently. We shoot the shit early in the morning while I’m doing a little studying in my dorm lounge before class, so he tells me all kinds of crazy stories that the janitors share between each other when they all clock in before work.

He said a hefty chunk of the female janitorial staff is on the verge of quitting because the girls have taken to shitting in the showers when they’re drunk/hung-over, and it’s not just isolated incidents either. It’s gotten so bad that they’re pressuring the university to address the issue directly, and this is a “progressive” West Coast school too, so there you go.

Odd that the stereotype of the ogre man and the neurotically cleanly housewife is completely reversed for young men in their twenties like me.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to take my girlfriend outside before she poos on the rug again.

Unfortunately, I think Slagmire gave us a warning about what feminists will do next after #PissForEquality/#PissOnPatriarchy without realizing it.  Their next hashtag will be #ShitForEquality or #ShitOnPatriarchy where feminists will take a shit in their pants and post pictures of that on Twitter.  The scary thing is that 4chan could easily cause this to happen sooner rather than later.

I’m sure all of you have heard about that UN report on “cyberviolence against women” that Anita Sarkeesian was involved with.  The report is bad enough that it treats discredited attorney and game critic, Jack Thompson, as a legitimate source on video games.  However, that report is much worse since Jack Thompson is one of the report’s better sources on video games.  That’s because the report treats Lyndon LaRouche as a legitimate source.  Yes, the same Lyndon LaRouche who is always running for president and is a batshit insane conspiracy theorist who thinks the British are behind everything bad that happens in the world and that the Queen of England runs the international drug tradeHere is an example of what LaRouche had to say about video games:

On March 3, in a dialogue with Hispanic-American leaders, LaRouche said:

“We’re getting killings which are caused by the use of Nintendo-style games, such as the game Pokémon, with children, and also with police and others. In the case of the Diallo shooting, the problem was that the Mayor of New York, like many other officials, has been training the police force in Nintendo-style killing techniques. . . . So we have Nintendo-killers.

The UN and Anita Sarkeesian have turned LaRouche’s “Nintendo killers” into “Nintendo rapists”, but it’s all the same.  The UN by including this in a report on “cyberviolence against women” is now saying Pokémon turns boys into rapists.  And don’t forget that Pokémon (along with Dungeons & Dragons) is a satanic conspiracy:

Hasbro Interactive: Official U.S. distributor of Pokémon (abbreviation for “Pocket Monsters”), the killing game designed for toddlers beginning at 2 and 3 years old; Dungeons and Dragons, the medieval satanic and magic fantasy game; Risk II, a “ruthless quest for world domination”. One of the Hasbro Board members is Paul Wolfowitz, the co-head of George W. Bush’s team of foreign policy advisors.

What we have got now is that the UN and Anita Sarkeesian are effectively endorsing the idea that video games are a satanic conspiracy to turn boys and men into rapists because they’re using LaRouche as a source for this report.  They should have stuck with Jack Thompson because even he wasn’t this insane.

Since the UN and Anita Sarkeesian consider Lyndon LaRouche to be an expert on video games, they probably will start using other conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones and David Icke as sources for further reports on “cyberviolence against women”.  Since David Icke invented the shapeshifting reptile alien conspiracy theory, I expect that the next report on “cyberviolence against women” will accuse gamers of being shapeshifting reptile aliens who secretly rule the world.  This may sound too insane to happen, but we would have thought the same a couple of weeks ago about the UN and Anita Sarkeesian using LaRouche as a legitimate source about video games.

By now I’m sure you have all seen the latest feminist whining about sex bots.  I’m constantly amazed how every time a feminist whines about sex bots it is treated as a new thing instead of a constant feminist war on sex bots.  I would also think that feminists would eventually figure out that there is much to worry about before a true sex bot is available for men such as VR sex.  They probably won’t since feminists aren’t involved in the development of new technology so they don’t understand how there are a lot of intermediate steps in the development of new technologies.

Every time a feminist whines about sex bots the same arguments get brought up about whether men will actually make use of sex bots or not.  Where these arguments fail is that they do not take into account just how bad women are getting especially for younger men.  Young men are getting fed up with women faster than any other group of men.  (It’s also worth pointing out that the article at that link STILL gets lots of hits years after I wrote it.  It has gotten more hits than any other page on this blog.)  On top of this consider the specter of false rape accusations such as mattress girl and Jackie that young men now have to deal with.  Men in college are choosing to date off campus so that they won’t be the victim of the campus false rape industry.  Because of dating off campus, the next push will be to expand college kangaroo tribunals to cover sex between a college student and a person who doesn’t go to college.  With that and the development of VR sex that will be happening in the next few years, “date off campus” will become “no sex with human women until graduation”.

Young men, who aren’t stupid, will choose “no sex with human women until graduation” since that will be the only way for men to protect themselves from the campus false rape industry.  VR sex can also provide alibis to men false accused of rape by women they never had sex with since the VR sex system can log when it is being used.  If a man is using a VR sex system, then obviously they weren’t doing anything else.  Given the education (pun intended) young men will be receiving from choosing “no sex with human women until graduation”, men aren’t going to suddenly choose to give up VR sex entirely for human women the day after graduation.  Young men will ask themselves if women couldn’t be trusted not to make false rape accusations in college, why would they be trustworthy later?  Thus the effect of “no sex with human women until graduation” extends beyond college even if a man occasionally has sex with human women.  This is what nobody is talking about when it comes to VR sex (or sex bots), and it’s a greater threat to women than anyone realizes.

Intel is running into financial trouble.  They’re going to have to slash $300 million dollars in spending which has already included $6 million dollars for their sponsorship of the Science Talent Search.  Since Intel needs to slash $300 million dollars from its business, there’s something else Intel could get rid that would not have any negative effect on their business performance, namely giving money to Feminist Frequency/Anita Sarkeesian and other feminists.  Intel has a stark choice here.  It can cut $300 million dollars from relevant productive business units, or it can not give $300 million dollars to feminists, the most unproductive (and anti-productive) group in the history of planet Earth.

Intel probably won’t make the smart choice here so what happen is that this will be the beginning of a death spiral for Intel, similar to what we have seen from Gnome, Mozilla, and other open source projects.  I’m predicting that unless Intel stops giving money to feminists, NVidia will buy up the pieces of Intel so that it can produce its own x86 CPUs (which it can’t do right now due to patents).  If you have wanted to see what NVidia would do if it could make its own x86 CPU, you will probably get your wish.

There has already been plenty of discussion about this article from the Atlantic that says robots will unemploy men and not women.  The methodology is problematic, but the main fault is the belief that “people skills” can prevent your job from being taken over by a robot which can be seen in this except from the article:

For instance, of the 3 million truck drivers in the U.S., more than 95 percent are men; of the nearly 3 million secretaries and administrative assistants, more than 95 percent are women. Autonomous vehicles are a not-too-distant possibility, and when they arrive, those drivers’ jobs will evaporate; office-support workers suffer no such imminent threat.

This pattern holds for many of the most gender-biased occupations. Men hold 97 percent of the 2.5 million U.S. construction and carpentry jobs. The Oxford study estimates that these male workers stand more than a 70 percent chance of being replaced by robotic workers. By contrast, women hold 93 percent of the registered nurse positions. Their risk of obsolescence is vanishingly small: .009 percent.

Nearly half of today’s jobs are likely to become obsolete in the not-too-distant future.

What is causing this pattern? The skills exhibited by the coming wave of intelligent machines are better suited to occupations currently dominated by men. Many of the jobs held by men involve perception and manipulation, often in conjunction with physical exertion, such as swinging a hammer or trimming trees. The latest mobile robots combine advanced-sensory systems with dexterous manipulators to successfully perform these sorts of tasks.

Other, more cerebral male-dominated professions aren’t secure either. Many occupations that might appear to require experience and judgment—such as commodity traders—are being outdone by increasingly sophisticated machine-learning programs capable of quickly teasing subtle patterns out of large volumes of data.

By contrast, women typically work in more chaotic, unstructured environments, where the ability to read people’s emotions and intentions are critical to success. If your job involves distracting a patient while delivering an injection, guessing whether a crying baby wants a bottle or a diaper change, or expressing sympathy to calm an irate customer, you needn’t worry that a robot will take your job, at least for the foreseeable future.

If jobs that involved “calming an irate customer” were protected then we wouldn’t see ATM machines.  ATM machines are one example of how “people skills” jobs, in this case bank tellers, can and will be reduced in number.  In fact there are even better examples such as this comment to the article:

Seems to me that automation already came to women’s work. I remember a time when every manager had to have a secretary. Secretaries typed memos, opened and distributed internal mail, filed incoming memos in chron files, ordered supplies, scheduled meetings, and so on.

Today, the traditional job of the secretary is largely done through email. Instead of every manager having a secretary, a single admin assistant can support an entire department.

Computers have also affected other clerical jobs. In the early 80s I worked in the patient accounts department of a hospital. There were around 100 employees, mostly women. Today that same department has around 50 employees, with computer systems doing most of the work of billing and collections.

This is something that has already happened.  And yet the article would have us believe that office workers can’t have their jobs eliminated.  (In fact, the only reason even more women in these types of jobs haven’t be unemployed is because the government is keeping a lot of these jobs around as make work jobs for women via unnecessary regulations and unnecessary government functions.)

What the article fails to understand here is that writing computer software is easier than building a robot.  Women are in a lot of paper pushing jobs (which don’t even involve paper anymore).  That is what we have seen happen and will continue to happen.  Women can’t save their virtual paper pushing jobs by dressing them up in “people skills”.  Women haven’t been able to do that so far.

As for commodities traders, there hasn’t been an elimination of those jobs like there has been with secretaries and the like.  So far big data tools have been doing work that couldn’t have been done before instead of replacing work currently being done.  Unsurprisingly, the article fails to understand intelligence augmentation which is what those tools do.

Since building a robot is harder than writing computer software, jobs in the trades (which the article refers to as “swinging a hammer”) aren’t going to be eliminated in the short term.  To build a robot that can replace a man in the trades requires sophisticated vision hardware and software as well the ability to interact with the real world that isn’t required to replace virtual paper pushers.  It will happen eventually, but the virtual paper pushers will get eliminated first as is already happening.  And this doesn’t even being to address the fact that we have a shortage of people in the trades.  If there were robots ready to replace men working in the trades, it will just mitigate the shortage that already exists.

The only area where technology is going to replace men in the short term is self driving vehicles.  In other words, that means cab drivers and truck drivers.  However, while that may happen quickly, it won’t happen that quickly.  The problem will be that, in the case of truck drivers at least, truck drivers act as de facto security guards for the cargo they’re driving.  A self driving truck doesn’t have that kind of built in security system.  While this is a problem that will be solved eventually, it does mean that the elimination of truck drivers will be slowed down.

Even when truck drivers are eliminated, these men will be fine.  First, there is the option of taking a job in the trades since there’s a shortage there.  Second, men are very capable of creating startups in various industries from tech to craft beer.  In fact, because men are so successful at this, women are accusing the craft beer industry of being misogynist and running a sustained campaign against the video game industry and men working in the tech industry.  The latter even includes nonsense accusations that Elon Musk is going to help #GamerGate take over Mars and, ironically, baseless attacks on self driving vehicles.

What we are seeing with the article from the Atlantic is the same thing that happened to Tom Smykowski, the people skills guy in Office Space:

This article is basically women saying the same thing as Tom Smykowski from Office Space.  Women are saying, “We have people skills.  We are good at dealing with people.  Can’t you understand that?  What is wrong with you people?”  Tom Smykowski was the first to be let go.  His “people skills” did not help him, and women’s “people skills” aren’t helping them either.

Last Friday Ellen Pao resigned from reddit.  Already the wagons are circling in an attempt to hide the fact that this was due to Pao’s gross incompetence by blaming “misogyny”.  However, there is a new tactic they’re trying that can be seen in an article about Pao’s resignation in the Christian Science Monitor:

While Reddit denies claims that it discriminated against Pao because of her gender, skeptics point to factors that they claim prove otherwise. According to Adweek, 74 percent of Reddit users are male.

First they tried to make us believe that simply having a business or industry where the employees are mostly male is evidence of misogyny.  Now, they’re trying to have us believe that a mostly male user base or customer base is evidence of misogyny.  What they’re saying is men not only should be allowed to work anywhere in large numbers but also shouldn’t be customers of any business in large numbers.  They probably won’t be satisfied until most men are in ghettos because that would be the only way to prevent men from working in a particular industry or being the customers of a particular business.

Attacking Reddit’s user base/customer base isn’t the first time that attacking a mostly male customer base has been tried.  That was the “Gamers Are Dead” articles that spawned #GamerGate.  And this probably won’t be the last time either.  There will be many more anti-feminist customer revolts like #GamerGate.

The Supreme Court says that homosexuals can get married.  There are a lot of women complaining about this, not about the ruling, but about the language used in the ruling.  Apparently, it’s some sort of insult to (heterosexual) women who can’t find a man willing to marry them.  The will say that’s not the reason, but when they bring up the works of Kate Bollick, it is.  (Remember, Kate Bollick is the woman who is infamous for wanting to be married but screwing it up when she had the chance.)

A lot of people think that polygamy will be the next marriage related political issue.  It won’t be.  If the articles above are anything to go by, it will be women trying to use the courts to rope men into marrying them or providing marriage like benefits by force.  The complaints in the articles above come from women who are angry that the gay marriage political debate wasn’t about them.  They’re going to do their best to avoid that happening again so expect polygamists or anyone else who can’t currently get married to be drowned out by the whining of women.

Since today is father’s day, I added a new page about how fatherhood and not marriage is essential for civilization.  I’m disabling comments on this post because all of the content is on the new page.  Follow the link or click on the tab at the top of the blog to read the page and comment on it.

A judge has tentatively ruled that Ellen Pao must pay due to her false sexism lawsuit.  This means that Ellen Pao is going to try to sue someone for $2.976 million now.  That’s because Ellen Pao was demanding $2.7 million dollars from Kleiner-Perkins not to appeal her case.  That dollar amount is conveniently the same as her husband’s unpaid legal fees related to the ponzi scheme he ran where he stole the pensions of Louisiana cops and firemen.  Combine the two and it’s clear that Pao will be looking for a target to sue for at least $2.976 million (plus additional legal fees).

I predict that Ellen Pao is going to sue Pei Wei.  I just got an email from Pei Wei with the subject, “Lighten Up, Pao”.  It’s about the new Kung Pao item on their menu that comes with lettuce instead of rice.  However, I’m sure Ellen Pao will try and weasel it as an cryptic attack on her by sexists at Pei Wei as an excuse to sue Pei Wei.  It makes as much sense as her other lawsuits.

First we had #ShirtGate/#ShirtStormNow, we have Tim Hunt, a Nobel Prize winning biochemist, being forced to resign from his job and from every scientific committee he is on simply because he made a joke about women being oversensitive, a joke which turned out to accurate given the reaction. Hunt was never even asked for his side of what happened.  He was simply forced to resign his job and booted from every scientific committee he was on.

Many other scientists are coming to Tim Hunt’s defense, among them Richard Dawkins:

How long is it going to be until we see a significant number of scientists being vocally anti-feminist?  Probably not that long because feminists have declared war on science because science tells us facts that contradict the feminist narrative.  The feminist war on science is synonymous with a war on scientists so feminists are out to destroy the lives of scientists like Tim Hunt and Matt Taylor.  With that kind war on them, scientists will increasingly have no reason not to be anti-feminist.  Any attempt by scientists to placate feminists will fail, and enough scientists will realize that sooner or later

Once thing that came up on the #GiveYourMoneyToWomen hashtag was “emotional labor”:

If “emotional labor” was a thing that actually existed, then someone would pay for it.  “Emotional labor” is unverifiable bullshit that women have come up with in an attempt to hide the fact that they aren’t doing any actual productive work.  I expect that women will come up with even more absurd ways of saying that they do unpaid work that can’t be verified.  That’s because women are mostly in make work jobs so they need to come up with ways to justify their jobs.  If women get really desperate, then they might even start complaining how they should be paid for the “free sex” they’re giving men.

Despite being a newly created hashtag, #GiveMoneyToWomen is not new.  Men have been giving money to women since the beginning of civilization.  You can see that in how women are responsible for 80% of all spending.  This is a gap of $10 trillion between women’s spending and women’s earnings.  David Frum documented this in a tweet:

Why is the #GiveMoneyToWomen hashtag necessary?  Why has it started now?  Giving money to women isn’t new, but what is new is that there are men refusing to give money to women.  MGTOW is going strong, but lots of men are GTOW without ever hearing of the term, MGTOW.  With men refusing to get married and refusing to work more than they have to, women aren’t going to get money from men like they used to.  There are two ways of getting money from men, marriage and via wealth redistribution from the state.  When a man refuses to get married and keeps his work output to a minimum, he prevents women from getting his money from both methods.  Enough men have done this, so we now have women doing the internet equivalent of standing on a street corner yelling, “I HAVE A VAGINA.  GIVE ME MONEY”.

There’s nothing left except to be that much more direct about it.  Sometime in the near future I’m sure we will see something like a #IHaveAVaginaGiveMeMoney hashtag.

InfoWars/PrisonPlanet (Alex Jones’s websites) released a youtube video about something called neomasculinity:

I noticed several things about the video.  While it used game language and other language from this part of the internet, it’s clear that whoever wrote the script for that video didn’t really understand what we talk about.  MGTOW gets attacked (which has led to responses from MGTOW like Barbarossa).  Overall, this is another attempt at entryism by tradcons with some game terms used as an unsuccessful attempt to hide that it is an attempt at entryism.

This is nothing new.  It’s just another form of Game 2.0/Man Up 2.0, an attempt to repackage game for the benefit of women (and in this case Alex Jones’s bank account).  This is the same thing Susan Walsh, the Manhood Academy/Manhood 101 morons, and others have tried and failed to do.  This time it has a dash of, “you have to get married because DEPOPULATION AGENDA!!!” (which is why believing in the depopulation agenda is misandry) and “They (whoever they is) are putting chemicals in the water to turn you gay”, but it’s really no different.  It’s an extreme form of the tradcon cry, “You have to get married to save civilization”.

Why is Alex Jones interested in creating another game 2.0 and attacking MGTOW now?  Sandman discovered that on Google trends that MGTOW became more popular than PrisonPlanet starting a couple of months ago, and MGTOW is only getting more popular.  Alex Jones is having the same problem all tradcons are having in trying to recruit young men.  As Hollenhund described, young men refusing to follow the tradcon script.  Alex Jones’s conspiracy theories are all derived from tradcon ideology, so when young men refuse to follow the tradcon script, they won’t buy into his conspiracy theories.

Alex Jones has a history of trying to cannibalize grass roots movements, and that is what he is doing with neomasculinity.  Barbarossa and John the Other had a conversation where they talked about that and how it turns into mission creep to the point where the original mission of a grass roots group gets replaced with doing nothing other than talking about the NWO.  Alex Jones and other conspiracy theorists treat the NWO as all powerful so nothing can be done.  It creates a self fulfilling prophecy of nothing getting done.  After Alex Jones cannibalizes a grass roots group, the group is completely neutralized.  If Alex Jones is successful both game and MGTOW (and the M(H)RM) would be cannibalized to the point where they are meaningless.

I am certain that Alex Jones’s attempt at entryism will fail.  We have dealt with entryist tradcons before.  Tradcons have nothing to offer game, MGTOW (or the M(H)RM) so neither does Alex Jones.  No one is impressed by, “You have to get married to save civilization”, so no one will be impressed by, “You have to get married to save civilization because DEPOPULATION AGENDA!!!”  We may see a few guys planning on pulling a Mark Minter use neomasculinity as a cover, but that will be it.  We don’t need Mark Minters so good riddance to them.

The more tradcons attack MGTOW, the more popular it becomes.  Let Alex Jones attack MGTOW and try his attempt at entryism.  He will fail, and MGTOW will be more popular afterwards.

Going after video games is not enough for the media.  It looks like the next target will be self driving cars.  Google’s self driving cars have driven 1 million miles without any human input, and have caused no accidents.  The only times self driving cars were in accidents were when humans were driving them or another car driven by a human rammed the car.  This is an impressive safety record on what is currently a BETA product, yet the media is trying to make self driving cars into a boogeyman:

A quick review.

No one knows if such an accident-free future is even possible, or whether autonomous vehicles will prove as flexible and responsive as humans in the most dangerous and unpredictable scenarios. Either way, hiding minor accident reports from the public suggests a rocky road ahead for self-driving cars.

Google’s self-driving cars involved in 11 accidents, director saysReuters

The only thing missing is to accuse self driving cars and everyone who works on them of being misogynists.  I’m sure that will happen either because the media will be called on the carpet for their fear mongering about self driving cars or some other reason that I can’t predict.  This is bound to be the next #GamerGate (or one of the next #GamerGates) because we’re dealing with the same people who are worried that #GamerGate is going to take over Mars.
