Us nasty men aren’t complimenting women enough, it seems

Men wary of paying women compliments

PDF

Men have become too worried about political correctness to pay women simple compliments, according to a new survey.

We’re not worried about political correctness; it’s the sexual harassment laws that political correctness bought about that worries us, not to mention the fact that a woman can retort with an abusive insult that you can’t respond back to without either getting sacked, arrested or beaten up by a passing Captain Save-a-Ho.

There have been several reports of this today – slow news day I guess – and all invariably have comments or quotes from women saying how they love compliments and want to receive them.

Aw, poor girlies. They’re not getting enough attention, or being told how pretty they are. Maybe they shouldn’t have followed their ‘liberation’ movement that demonised and even criminalised male sexuality.

It’s like a report from California last year about how career gals were getting all upset because men in the workplace often didn’t talk to them or invite them out for after-work drinks because the guys were worried about sexual harassment charges. Back then – like now – there is no talk of relaxing these rules or perhaps changing women’s attitudes (like not being man-hating entitlement princesses.)

Fewer than one in five women questioned (16%) received the “recommended” five compliments a day, and 12% said no one had paid them a compliment in the past three months.

What’s this about the ‘recommended’ five compliments a day? Do women fall into a coma if they don’t get them?

Another important reason why women aren’t receiving as many compliments these days is because many don’t deserve them. That seems to have been overlooked by all these news reports on the story.

If women want more compliments, how about acting and dressing as if they deserve them? It’s rather hard to find anything about most modern women to compliment (let alone an incentive to do so) when many act and dress like either sluts, or like some bizarre, warped, confused wannabe-man.

Women in/out the workplace
September 23, 2007

——————————————————-

17 May 2007

We hear a lot about “getting women into the workplace”, about new schemes or ideas to ensure more women (or subcategories thereof, such as mothers, single-mothers, female ex-convicts, women with AIDs, etc) are in the workplace. Or in a specific workplace (e.g. company directors, I.T., film directors, journalism, politics, etc. But never – strangely enough – construction, sewer maintenance, front-line soldiers, pest-controllers, etc.)

All these schemes and plans always seem to talk of offering:

* Paid maternity leave
* Flexi-time
* Job-Sharing schemes
* Part-time position
* Career breaks
* Paid leave when a child is ill
* No harm done to promotion prospects for taking an X-years-long career break
* Opportunities to work from home

Every damn time there is talk of getting more women into work, or a certain industry, the above items are touted as ways to accomplish this.

Forgive me if I’m being silly, but are all those things actually orchestrated to ensure the woman in question is actually out of the workplace? Either whilst she has kids, whilst she raises them, whilst the kid is ill, or even just to fuck off at three o’clock every day to make the school run?

There’s always a bit of the old positive discrimination/affirmative action thrown in too of course; nothing like boosting the numbers of women in a job by forcing companies to recruit them under threat of fines or closure. But otherwise, it seems the best way to get woman into a certain job is to provide her with plenty of opportunities to be paid without having to be there all the time, or indeed at all for considerable periods of time (working full-time for ever and ever and ever is, it seems, only us men have to do.)

Whilst, of course, she keeps her fancy job title – for her grrl-power ego-boost – and, most importantly of all, the full salary too.

It says a lot about women’s attitude to work that even the government implicitly accepts that the only real way of encouraging more women into a workplace is to ensure that the women have plenty of opportunities to not actually have to be there.

Young women dominate UK net scene

Young women are now the most dominant group online in the UK, according to new research from net measurement firm Nielsen/NetRatings.

Women in the 18 – 34 age group account for 18% of all online Britons.

They also spend the most time online – accounting for 27% more of the total UK computer time than their male counterparts.

Interesting to note how this fairly unimportant statistic seems to be presented in such a triumphant way, with talk of women ‘dominating’ the ‘net, and also how they are taking on the ‘traditionally male dominated’ world of gaming. So? Big deal. Yet it seems that it’s another thing to get all excited about; “Woooh, cyber-empowering, grrrl power, etc.”

Whenever it is shown that men make up the majority of something – internet users, online gamers, etc – then there’s usually talk of how more women need to be encouraged to take part, that poor women are put off by the nasty men, etc.

09 May 2007

At my local newsagent the women’s magazines are, inexplicably, laid out on the counter; Women’s Own, Bella, She, Elle, Chat, Heat, Stupid Cunt (okay, I made that last one up, but it would do as the title of them all.)

Whilst queueing up I usually scan the covers and headlines and snicker at the brainless articles of celebrity gossip and ‘True Story’ tales that these tomes of glossy stupidity contain.

It’s amazing how much women seem to love tragedy, going by these magazines. There seem to be plenty of articles advertised on the front along the lines of Raped by my step-dad! and Face to face with my sister’s killer! It’s as if, even when heart-wrenchingly real, tragedy is just another bit of gossip for women to ingest at lunchtime and then vomit forth over other women at the water cooler when they should be working that afternoon. Then again, it says a lot that the women at the centre of these stories seem to be quite capable of selling their stories to some dumb magazine that averages fifty-pictures and fifty-words per-article.

What I notice the most about these magazines is who is on the cover; women.

Women, women, women and more women. That’s all there is on magazines for women.

Men’s magazine covers feature trains, planets, aeroplanes, computer game characters, naked women (in the case of porn mags), naked men (in the case of gay mags), half-naked women (photography mags), rock stars, computers, DVD players, guitars, sailing boats, motorboats, motorbikes, cars, guns, model train-sets…and so on.

Obviously the cover of magazines depicts what is of interest to the publication’s readers.

Scan the covers of magazines for men; they depict a whole vast spectrum of things.

Scan the magazines for women, and they all depict are women. Women, women, women, cunting fucking women!

Whilst men are fascinated by a whole range of stuff, all women are interested in, it seems, is women. If they show a passing interest in anything else (like men) it’s only in how they relate to women.

To quote, once again, from Richard Ford; men look out on the world through a window, whilst women gaze endlessly into a mirror.

Finally, what is the most visible achievement of feminism in academic circles?

That’s right; Women’s Studies

They fucking study themselves. Then they study themselves studying themselves!

And women dare to wonder why they are under-represented in the invention and scientific discovery stakes. How can they invent or discover anything when all their sex indulges in is dolorous naval gazing?

Women Now Empowered By Everything A Woman Does

According to a study released Monday, women—once empowered primarily via the assertion of reproductive rights or workplace equality with men—are now empowered by virtually everything the typical woman does.

..

Other acts of empowerment include gossiping about the sexual proclivities of male acquaintances, lunching with other women in small groups, taking calcium-rich antacid tablets, and reading The Nanny Diaries.

The study also cites the act of pumping one’s raised fist in a gesture of female solidarity against the oppressive forces of air pressure.

“Nearly 90 percent of study participants have done this at least once in their lives, often accompanying their action with the exhortation ‘You go, girl!’ or, simply, ‘Whooooooo!'” Klein said.

Although satirical, this article is actually pretty close to the truth.

Worn out wannabe brides

20 April 2007

enjoy_cock.jpg

Before feminism, females would generally marry young, often before turning 20. Thus they gave most of their prime and fertile years (16 – 24) to a husband who – assuming he was a good husband, and most were – would be loyal to her and give to her the best and most productive of his years by providing for her.

Now, of course, most women want to marry later, often past 25 or even 30. There is talk of the ‘eleven-year party gap’ in some women’s articles, whereby women sleep around for a decade after leaving University then marry at 32. Once they’re all used up. That’s the plan anyway, none of the articles along these lines seem to mention post-31 women who went along this route and managed to find a devoted hubby, they just talk to the deluded party-girls in their twenties who insist everything will all go to plan.

I hear plenty of young women at work talk of putting off marriage, one even getting worried when she thought (incorrectly, as it turned out) that her boyfriend was planning on proposing to her.

“No way am I getting married now,” the 22-year-old said, “I won’t marry until I’m at least 26. After all, what if someone better comes along in that time?”

Another young woman insisted – in all seriousness – that “40 is a good age for a woman to marry.”

Not all women use these youthful years to sleep around wantonly, but plenty do. One 24-year-old woman at work is apparantly on her third boyfriend of the year already and it’s only April (she is talking of wanting to get married soon, but that’s probably because she had an illegitimate kid by some thug a couple of years ago, and she no doubt wants a stepfather for the bastard.) The article I posted about a few weeks ago, about the ‘eleven-year party gap’, quoted one woman of 23 who bragged of sleeping with 40 men.

One woman I dated a few years ago (and ditched after just the one date) happily told me over dinner an anecdote of getting yelled at and grounded by her parents when she was 13 ‘because I was always sneakin’ out and getting drunk with these older guys from school who I hung out with and who bought me and me mates booze.’

Yeah, I can figure what ‘hung out with’ means. She and her drunken mates were getting some of the old in-out from these older guys. This woman was 27, so she’d evidently been humping away for fourteen-years. Eew! Swiftly-nexted. Pronto.

Post-Bridget, it’s looking even worse for the girls

PDF

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an alpha female requires an even more alpha male as a mate. But a recent report suggests today’s successful woman with her high standards and picky notions will have nobody to marry: women now make up 57% of university graduates and outnumber men in every subject in higher education (though not engineering or maths, yet).

For the post-Bridget Jones and Sex and the City generation, it’s bad news. The sobering truth is that demographics being what they are, more and more educated, eligible women are facing a choice: downgrade your notions of Mr Right, or face up to life alone.

I love articles like this, that reveal how badly women have shot themselves in the foot.

“Oh boo-hoo, we stormed into the universities and workplace, shoving men out of the way in the process, and now we’re finding we’ve inadvertantly hampered our chances of marrying Mr Right Sucker who’ll let us retire in our 30s.”

Stupid cunts.

Women are getting better degrees — more 2:1s and firsts in every subject — and two-thirds of medical students are now women, compared with 29% in the 1960s. So not much point in hoping that a handsome consultant will come along, whose Harley Street earnings will pay for the school fees and the 4×4.

Damn right you can throw those hopes away bitches. You left the home in the 1950s and demanded us men iron our own clothes and cook our own tea. Fine. We will do. Now we’re dropping out of universities and the workplace and telling women to pay their own mortgages and support themselves.

Still a burning issue

Marilyn French, the author of The Women’s Room, tells why she is still full of fury that the world remains a place messed up by men.

Short answer; she’s angry because she’s a Western Women, who are nearly always pissed off and moaning about fucking something, and she believes it is all men’s fault because she’s a Western Woman and a feminist to boot, and thus unable to accept any blame for her own misery.

The long answer…well, let’s read the article and sneer at the fucking bitch.

The girl at the Bobbi Brown make-up counter at Barneys wants to know what I’m doing in New York. I tell her that I’m interviewing Marilyn French, who wrote a book in the Seventies called The Women’s Room, bought by 20 million people and read by many more: dog-eared copies passed around neighbourhoods, hidden from husbands, read in secret at kitchen tables when the kids had gone to school. Hailed as the first feminist novel, it was devoured by desperate housewives around the world for its dramatisation of their feelings of rage and frustration, its offer of freedom through sisterhood and radical politics.

And now women have that wonderful freedom to be old and single and angry, not to mention slaving away at soul-crushing jobs. Brave girls.

“Wow!” breathes the girl, a blonde American beauty with flawless skin. “Yeah, wow!” says her colleague, who has a mane of dark hair and scarlet lips, “that’s so cool.” The blonde girl had done a semester of women’s studies at college and was getting married soon: she wanted to keep her career but also to have babies and make a nice home.

Typical dumb greedy bitch; she wants it all – to be a career woman, a housewife and a mother – but can’t comprehend the idea that she can’t. No-one can.

We’ve never had it so good

PDF

They outperform boys at school, university, and work. They’re the twentysomething Generation Y women – educated, ambitious, successful. But is life really as good as it looks? Louise Carpenter reports

Indeed, another pile of triumphant nonsense about how women are so brilliant and outperforming men, the sort that regularly crops up from feminists, often lying side-by-side with articles that, paradoxically, bang on about how women are held back by the Patriarchy, under-represented on boards of directors, and glass-ceiling this, wage-gape that, blah-buggering-blah.

Still, to be fair, the writer does acknowledge her study isn’t scientific (well duh, like we couldn’t work that out for herself) and she also points out (but without condemnation) the shocking sense of entitlement of young women.

At the end of each day of interviews with the girls, I’d emerge from my study punch-drunk from their undiluted self-confidence; the absolute cast-iron belief in the power of their own will.

Really? After a day with them, I’d have come out disgusted by the infinite arrogance, stupidity and narcissism shown by these entitlement princesses. I’d have probably punched them too.

Amongst the things that stand out are these:

All of them bore out the theory that girls are easier to educate than boys. Many grew up being told by parents and teachers they were the best, certainly better than boys – which, for some, had caused its own problems.

Indeed, girls are easier to educate. Did I say educate? I mean indoctrinate. They sit still, shut up and do anything to please, and tell them something will empower them – like working in a soul-crushing office job for 45-years – and they’ll often do it. Boys will think for themselves and rebel against things that aren’t in their own interest; unless, of course, they have been successfully emasculated by feminist teachers and therapists and their truck-loads of Ritalin.

PE Miss in bust-up for losing her kit

toplessteach.jpg

PARENTS are furious a PE mistress is being allowed to carry on teaching their kids despite posing topless on the internet.

Former England netball player Louise Crolla, 26, exposes her enhanced 32DD boobs and offers to do ‘fetish’ work on the modelling agency website.

Ah, what a fine role-model (no pun intended) for kids. At least she’s showing girls that they can do all sorts of shit and not be punished.

But her headmaster will not sack her from her £30,000 supply job.

Thirty-grand a year for being a supply-teacher? Fuckin’ hell, that’s way above the average national wage. And they get over three-months holiday a year. Tits out or otherwise, that’s a fucking disgrace teachers are getting that amount, bearing in mind what a poor job they’re doing these days, with an increasing number of kids coming out of over a decade of full-time education illiterate and innumerate.

She admitted: “I only thought about what the students and the school would think afterwards.

“I thought, ‘Oh dear, what am I doing?’ But then I thought, ‘No, I want to give modelling a go.'”

Right, she figured it might be wrong but, hey, she wanted to do it. And like an empowered grrl, she did it without regards to the consequences.

There seems to be a slight contradiction there too. In one sentence she claimed not to have considered the consequences until “afterwards”, then in the next she’s saying she figured consequences be damned before she did it. Daft bint can’t keep her story straight.

And this brainless, gormless goit with the sense of responsibility and maturity of a 12-year-old is actually in charge of teaching kids? Holy fuck.

Vagina Worship Day

14 February 2007

Ah, t’is Valentines Day.

I love Valentines Day. Being single and male, it means I don’t have to pay for over-priced cards, pointless flowers, repugnantly cute Teddy Bears or outrageous trips to Paris for some screeching entitlement princess.

Best of all, I get to snicker at the growing ranks of aging single career gals at work, simmering with resentment as bouquets of flowers arrive for the younger women, knowing that they made a big mistake in shunning commitment when they were eligible and deciding to put off marriage until they were old and past it.

Today, one aging man-hating hag was bitching about another colleague, a woman who came in with the flowers her boyfriend gave her that morning and placing them proudly on her desk.

“Look at her, showing off,” grumbled the arch man-hater to another spinster as they hung around the photocopier like grazing wilderbeast.

Never fear you crones, I felt like telling them, for the young women drowning in flowers and cards will soon be old, they’ll soon be deserted by the guys they fucked their way through in their twenties, and they, too, will soon be thirty-something and lonely.

In fact, one woman was saying she was glad her boyfriend didn’t propose to her this morning because “I’m too young for marriage.” She’s 24. She went on to say that 30 was a good age to get married. Yeah, when she’s getting on a bit, when her biological clock is ticking down and her boobs are sagging. I’m sure she’ll be inundated with proposals then. Snigger. That’s what the 30+ hags at the photocopier probably thought when they were young, pretty and perky.

And just out of interest, I took the time to enquire of a couple of women what they got their boyfriends for Valentines Day.

“Nothing,” one replied, triumphantly, as if loving the fact that her boyfriend got her a diamond necklace (what a twat!) and yet she is under no obligation to give him anything in return.

“Nothing,” the other replied, actually sounding rather disgusted, as if the idea of buying anything for her boyfriend was repulsive and stupid. Well, it’s not as if she loves him or anything I suppose.

Women face debt time-bomb from fear of bankruptcy due to social stigma

PDF

Thousands of women who are in desperate debt are shying away from bankruptcy because of the social stigma.

Refusal to take this difficult decision is piling on misery and creating even greater debt problems, according to a study from the Consumer Credit Counselling Service.(CCCS)

The CCCS says that 61 per cent of the people it recommends to go bankrupt are women – three quarters of these are single.

No surprise there.

They spend more than they earn on frivolous crap, and increasingly these days are unable to find a sucker who’ll marry them and pay off their debts.

However, more than half of these women refuse to take this drastic step, seeing it as a sign of shame and failure.

Well technically it is a sign of failure. At least most men who file for bankruptcy tend have attempted a business venture, whilst it seems most women go bankrupt because of ridiculous consumerism.

There is also a group of have it all single young women who have loaded up credit cards on clothes, partying and holidays.

Yup. And I know plenty of them. I laugh my arse off when I see them panic as they get older and realise that a Sucker In Shining Armour is probably not going to turn up and marry them and their debts after all. Har har.

Women working longer and loving it. Apparantly.

Women embrace long-hours culture as men bow out

Somehow I don’t think women are actually “embracing” working longer hours. I know of no women over about 30 who wouldn’t rather cut down on work or quit for a few years or altogether. They moan constantly about their workloads. Even the go-getting grrls in their early 20s often admit they hate the idea of having to work all their lives, and many seem to want to (and think they’re entitled to) retire in their 30s.

However, the marriage strike is taking care of things. More and more women who can’t find a sucker who’ll marry them have no choice but to work and support themselves and pay off their own damn credit cards. Plus women flooding the market diluted wages and made the economy adapt to two-income households. Hence those women who do find a sucker to marry often have to continue working anyway, often against their will.

Men may be working a bit less because of positive discrimination but also because fewer of us have wives to support, so we can take it easy. Most of us men aren’t really that materialistic, we only needed flash-cars and designer clothes to impress women. They’re not worth impressing, and marriage is too risky, so we’ll not be working 60+ hours a week anymore, thanks very much. I only work 37-hours a week, and I respond to requests to do overtime with laughter.

A thumping night out
September 6, 2007

13 January 2007

It’s often said that police rarely know the first half of a story of domestic violence, and usually assume any woman who has been hit by a guy is case of a big bad man beating up on a poor defenceless woman for no reason. Whilst such incidents do occur, and are to be obviously condemned, in a majority of cases (going by the few domestic violence studies that are not censored by feminists for not showing what they want to show) the woman is often blatantly provocative, if not physically, then verbally. Yet often such cases are not investigated to the point of this being discovered.

There was an example of this a few years ago on some cheap sensationalist documentary about binge-drinking and violence; if the favourite pass-time in Britain is getting drunk and having a fight, then watching others do it on grainy CCTV footage on documentaries with titles like Binge Booze Britain: IV! is a close second.

This one featured CCTV footage in a car-park that some city centre security officials watched before calling for police to go to the scene. It showed a young man walking across the car-park with a dumpy middle-aged woman following him and shouting. There was no sound, but clearly she was not saying pleasant things. The man turned around and made a sweeping gesture with his hand, as if to say “fuck off.” The woman strode towards him, still angry. The guy raised his fist. The woman paused, but then continued storming towards him relentlessly.

Successful women begrudge husbands who earn less, study claims

PDF

In today’s modern workplace women are increasingly out-earning their male partners.

But it seems that becoming the main breadwinner does not necessarily make for a winner on the home front.

In fact, many women begrudge their partner’s lack of earning power.

Yes, we know; for all the bragging of their uber-business skills, most women still want a man to bankroll their way through life and, although they’re content to live off a man, the idea of it being the other way around infuriates them.

Strange how, when men provided for women, that was Patriarchal Oppression, yet for women to provide for men (which will be more common as women not only have hiring preferences but more men are sensibly deciding not to bother striving in the rat-race in an ungrateful society) it’s somehow horrible for poor women.

Early retirement
August 9, 2007

——————————————————-

20 November 2006

At work today I caught a snippet of two young women yakking away at the photocopier. Amazingly they did not seem to be talking about television or shopping for once. They had been discussing some new company pension scheme or other. As I passed I heard one say to the other:

“I couldn’t imagine working until I’m sixty-eight, or whatever the new retirement age is.”

“Me neither,” said the other, “that’s just, like, so many years away. It’s ridiculous. I’ll be ready to retire in a few years!”

“Me too,” concluded the other.

The conversation drifted off, as did I.

That, to me, sums women up. Working full-time until you’re old is not for them. That’s the responsibility of men, to keep the economy going and pay the taxes that subsidise our own disenfranchisement under the Matriarchy.

Furthermore, these two women are typical young post-feminist go-getters, in their early-twenties and, on other occasions, have bragged about how women are so much better in the workplace, supposedly proved by their increasing numbers. Yet, still, working throughout their lives is the last thing on their minds. Clearly, retiring sometime in their thirties is their plan, and unless they intend on winning the lottery or investing their money wisely rather than spending it (the latter option being even less likely than the former) then clearly the only way they can do this is on the back of a man. Both are single but in relationships. Sadly, I dare say their boyfriends are probably unaware of being ear-marked to bankroll their career-gal’s early-retirement.

Stay single men. That way you’ll not only ensure your own security and have a more peaceful and productive life, but you’ll also ensure that it’ll mean one more women-firster fembot career-gal will have a taste of proper equality and be obliged to slave away at her job all her life. That’s what they said they wanted isn’t it? Entry to the workplace instead of the “oppression” of being at home whilst hubby goes out to provide? Well, women insist they’re always right, so give them what they wanted. Tough luck if they’ve changed their minds.

Serial bullies …Women who make life hell at work

Thanks to Hawkeye for the link.

“There are a lot of women suffering in silence at the hands of other women,” says Zana Bytheway, executive director of Job Watch. “In some cases, bullying happens because people love the sense of power it gives them. It’s about ego. In other cases, I think bullying happens because people are under so much pressure. They have to do more in less time and with less staff. Productivity, profits, pressure. It’s a potent mix.

..

However, the most worrying workplace bully is the serial, or psychopathic, bully — and it seems women are particularly effective at this kind of behaviour. They intentionally hurt colleagues and revel in the pain they cause. “The psychopathic bully is very good at showing one face to the boss and another face to the people below them,” explains Egan.

Ah yes, those wonderful women and their caring natures, making the workplace sooo much more friendly than us horrible men.

Martini Moms toast a rebellion against parental correctness

WHEN Laura Hunter welcomes up to half a dozen fellow mothers to her suburban New Jersey home for an afternoon children’s play hour, she follows a strict routine. The children are ushered into the playroom or garden and given cups filled with apple or orange juice. Then Hunter gets out her real glasses and pours margaritas for the mums.

They have become known as the Mommies Who Drink, after the title of a new book by Brett Paesel, a California writer who urges mothers not to sacrifice their lives to child-rearing. Their cocktail of choice is the “momtini” — a potent Martini designed to make mothers feel better about the hours they are obliged to spend responsibly sober.

Wow, well done girls, you can all get drunk and feel proud about it.

Although I don’t think mothers should refrain from ever relaxing or drinking, it’s absurd and pathetic the way they all seem to think they’re so empowered and rebellious “because, giggle, we have a drink! Squeal!” Plus they don’t even wait until their kids are being looked after by someone else or in bed before breaking out the booze. Just thrust them into the garden then get pissed with all the other skanks.
