Zenpriest #30 - Gurl Math

Quote: "The changing ratio of female to male students is a social phenomenon worthy of speculation. As women assume the role of breadwinner, are men becoming less economically driven? Does an anti-male bias in education discourage males (advancement), as another study suggests?"

Y'know, it takes a full PhD in something like sociology to become so stupid as to seriously ask such questions.

"If you fill your living room with wadded newspapers, and then throw a match into them, do you think your house will burn down?"

Take away not only the motivation, but the means as well, for men to become financially successful, and d'ya think men might actually become less financially successful?

Give women more than 50% of college degrees (since 1980) and more than 50% of all management level jobs (since 2001) and just where are these financially successful men supposed to come from? Out of the same ass that all the cooked statistics came from? I guess gurl-math somehow sees it as being possible for women to get 60% of the best paying jobs, and for men to get the other 60% so all those high achieving women can find an even higher achieving man, all the while also making $1 for every $1 a man makes.

The law of summation of paradoxes dictates that at some point the entire system of delusion has to collapse.


"No matter how strong a woman is, no matter how much of a feminist a woman is, she still tends to look down on men who are not sufficiently aggressive and successful... We still want men to achieve as much or more, and we have contempt for those who don't. They're marginal; they're losers." -- writer and professor Jane Young in Good Will Towards Men by Jack Kammer

"[S]leek young women in the Prada-handbag crowd... cast chilly, appraising glances around the room at power-lunch restaurants and dot-com launch parties. You can almost see the thought balloons over their heads: 'Anyone here making more than me and worth talking to?' Most of [the] female clients [of one professional matchmaker who worked at two dating services in San Francisco for ten years] were over 30. They made a lot of money but were determined to find a man who made even more. Their happiness seemed to depend on it." -- columnist Sue Hutchinson, San Jose (California) Mercury News, October 1, 2000
