Female Trouble

This week is a show about women. No, it is not just me mocking feminists, but there is some of that. I think our side does not always talk about the proper role of women, mostly because the people involved in dissident politics are men. That and the feminist loons dominate the issue, so the natural tendency is to react to their latest lunacy. It is a topic our side should talk about in a more constructive way, so I thought I’d try a little bit of that this week. At the same time, I wanted to keep it light, so I have some feminist bashing too.

After wrapping this episode up, it occurred to me that there are no alt-right women outside of the eye candy who do YouTube videos. Let’s face it, their popularity is superficial. No one will be asking me about Tara McCarthy’s thoughts on the current crisis. That’s no knock on these women. I’m just pointing out that the women involved in dissident politics are not engaging at an intellectual level. On the other hand, the more thoughtful women may be confined to the trad-mom world, which I don’t follow, so who know.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below. I’m now on Spotify, so the millennials can tune in when not sobbing over white privilege and toxic masculinity.

The right wing has a woman problem. Specifically, women are appalled by right wing politics and want nothing to do with men who espouse them.

How many of you guys have ever had a girlfriend? How many of you are married? How many have you have kissed a girl?

The whole “men more competitive – women more cooperative” is a gross oversimplification IMHO. I’ve lost track over the years of how many women who have told me that they HATE working with other women. Maybe their periods all get in sync or something – but a bunch of women working together in an office environment typically end up acting like hormonally deranged high school age girls. The women who have told me this were all highly educated and smart and competent – and included female managers I worked under and a highly successful female business owner.

I’ve worked for men and women, with male and female co-workers. I found generally that men make better leaders AND followers. I think that comes from the “hunter genes” (related to CD’s point on sportsball). Women co-workers generally complained more about female leaders than male leaders, resenting their success and status more. “Why did they give the job to her?” I never saw a woman undermine a male boss, but often saw them undermining female bosses. I’ve worked for a good femaie manager or two, but most of them were sweat acts. They seemed to lack confidence, either in their… Read more »

I tend to agree with your assessment. Only at the Alpha end of things do you see guys competing in a dog eat dog fashion. Most guys want to get the job done. The only problems come in when either someone who is the leader isn’t getting the job done or there is a serious slacker. On the flip side, women do hate working with other women.

I noted after many yrs in operational military organizations that men who didn’t particularly like each other could often work together under even the most difficult conditions; but, women who disn’t like each other could not — they seemed to be constantly working against enemies or rivals, often at the expense of the overall mission.

W maybe slight generalization, Z has a point. Yes, women compete too, but it is not in the way men do. Men like it ‘out in the open’. Hell, we used to have duels and still, occasionally, take it outside when some dumb F cant stop his mouth from running for too long. Women, they snare each other w social games and smile as the blade goes into the back.

40 years on construction sites, and I’ve never seen a fist fight. I’ve seen plenty of shouting matches and had a few of my own, but the men always find a way to work things out. Somehow men from a wide variety of cultures all manage to work together in uncomfortable environments and finish the project.

Put two women together for more than a day in a nice office space and they’ll find something to fight about.

Most women need a religious underpinning to their activism, especially if it gets a step or two beyond the simple alleviation of perceived suffering. Marxist feminism provides this, mostly by playing up the supposed suffering and putting it in a mythic framework complete with a bogey man and a promised Eden somewhere in the hazy distance. The dissident right simply fails to provide anything like a satisfying non-material rationale. Simple appeals to reason or evidence do not work. Better to take something a woman already feels strongly about and reframe it in such a way that her emotions are redirected… Read more »

Havent heard it yet, will do after work. No, there are hardly any women in dissident politics. Women most stick to mainstream and are not leaders and it is a sign of weakness when they have, or are allowed, to lead. If biology picked you to swell to a small landwhale, walk like a duck and push out a 7 lbs screaming lump, having ‘strong independent opinions’ could easily make you lone snack for cave bears away from all the ppl who didnt share your ‘strong independent views.’ Hope this podcast is good, ie straight talk on women.

It seems as if even a lot of progressive males, in some dim chamber of their minds, know there are hardwired biological differences between men and women. I was reading an article on “Mother Jones” about how the Army’s female PT test has lighter standards (less push-ups, etc.) in order to measure women’s “commensurate level of physical fitness” (or some such crap) to male soldiers. Someone, a frequent commentor and a progressive himself, piped up and said, “Well, if the women are doing fewer push-ups isn’t that an acknowledgment that they’re not as strong, or at least different from men?”… Read more »

We ALL *know* there are hardwired differences between men and women. The denial of this is a testament to how most people, and 99.9% of women (maybe 90% of men) are guided by social context, not facts. Ie they can live w total intellectual dissonance but not social dissonance.

Well, the problem is that a lot of times the consequences of playing dumb are much larger than intellectual dissonance.

But that average female decides she wants to be an infantry(wo)man and she writes her average congresswoman who starts a campaign to make this girl’s GI Jane fantasy a reality.

We don’t disagree. One major reason that the military, and things like firefighting, is one of the last hold-outs against make-belief ‘equality’ is that it is one of the places where reality can be as rough, or rougher (in combat or working dangerous equipment (by which I did not mean women lol)) than the social context. In talky chatty jobs, the social context dominates hard reality. And fairy tales can thrive, hence so can nutty leftism.

I remember in college freshman biology, the prof asked the class for a raise of hands if you think men have bigger heads than women. I was the only one in a class of at least 50 who raised his hand. No girls raised their hands either. I’m still not sure if everyone was that stupid, or just petrified they’d be wrong and publicly exposed as sexist. His question did seem like a potential counterintuitive gotcha! question. But still, you know what you KNOW. What a bunch of fearful wimps. I’ll never forget that moment.

I think that @thezman is right when considering large groups/women in general. The issue for me is: what about the exceptions to the rule? In the past there was never an outlet for a smart woman with intellectual interests. There were stigmas against women not only voting or entering politics, but also being artists and writers. Where should the line be drawn? I see no point in stifling the natural talents of 50% of the population, but I also think that lowering standards so that women can enter fields where they are obviously outclassed is a societal negative (e.g., women… Read more »

Society lost its moorings in the 60s. Can you imagine a Victorian man hooting at a woman in the street? There would be no #metoo movement if it was socially unacceptable for women to agree to unchaperoned/solo visits with male strangers. Don’t get me wrong: I think good men should conduct themselves like gentlemen in the world as a matter of personal principle. I just think that the loosening of sexual mores and the bawdiness of daily life contribute to behavioral decline in both sexes.

Sorry for the disjointed rants. Posting before thinking, busy day ahead. Another factor of instinct- male relatives, uncles, grandfathers, fathers, sons- form a natural patriarchy within a tribe, with one family ahead of the rest. Being individually weak, the women cooperate as a collective to counter that umbrella of male relatives- but between themselves, scheme and manipulate for personal advantage. As always, our instincts can betray our best intentions. Think, boys, think! White men can out-think anyone. Our opposition is clever, not sentient.

One woman among men can do fine if she is not lead and sex is not involved. If only one man wants the sex and she wants him, it can still work.

Women properly mated can be cooperative with a leading male.

Veterinary medicine used to be a male-dominated profession. I’m not sure exactly when the drift started, but I’d guess 70s or 80s. This is becoming a real problem in the rural, large animal practice side of the business. Doctoring horses and cattle is, as you might expect, a seriously physical business. Most women simply can’t handle it. Add to that, it’s the least well-paid part of the profession. You can make much better money giving vaccines to rich peoples’ poodles. There’s a real shortage of physically-capable veterinarians in large animal practice. One writer, Steve Sailer maybe(?), has noted that when… Read more »

Whether women entering the field has caused the stagnation in salaries, or whether the decline in salaries has diminished the number of men entering the field, is almost irrelevant. It is the fact that men, not for love of money, but for sleepless nights wondering how they will pay for the second child’s college on the heels of the first, are innately providers.

Still having a hard time understanding this: You have two groups; we’ll call them group M and group W. The two groups are exactly alike in every way and each group makes up ~50% of the total population. However, group M has been able to completely oppress and/or control group W for all of recorded history. You would think that group W could have thrown off this oppression at any time. Since W possess all the same attributes as group M this means that M cannot have any inherent advantages over W. Since they did not, does this mean that… Read more »

I say no, group W was too busy tearing itself apart while group M was getting on with building out their community. At the end of the day, group W had no standing, as it was no longer a group but a bunch of individuals. Group M gets the blame for this, but correlation is not causation. Turning group M people into W’s weakens the whole system, no matter how much the W’s see that as some sort of “just” outcome.

I’m just throwing things out there to see what sticks, but if you look around at coordinated, predatory gang behavior, of the most brutal sort (drug cartels, MS-13, biker gangs, ghetto street gangs), it is almost all male.

I will back down on that one. Men own the physical sphere due as much to self-organization as to brute strength (IMO), but women have played the mental ganging-up game much better.

Regarding cooperation, I wonder if women are more cooperative only in certain, specific arenas. I remember reading something recently about a study of group cooperation that found that groups of men work together much better than groups of women because among men a hierarchy is quickly established and men settle into their group roles fairly readily. Women, on the other hand are constantly redefining the hierarchy and jockeying for position, which made them far less efficient. This bears out in tales my daughter tells of work in the female-dominated healthcare industry. The backbiting and pettiness are incredible. I work in… Read more »

There is an understanding of humans that observes we behave as if it is safer to be wrong with the crowd than right all alone. We witness this every day and the quality is especially concentrated in women. Fear of being outside the group is what filters what we think. A woman who steps outside the group has another, smaller group to support her. A man may exist opposed to the group alone, in virtue of his most unpleasant qualities.

No republic can survive universal male suffrage, or ever has. Female suffrage lays WD-40 on the skids. As a man said, politics is show business for ugly people, so there is no particular reason to bar women from public office.There is every reason not to let them vote ugly people into office.

A comment on what happens when a profession is taken over by women and how I view the exceptions to the rule, be it in politics, science etc: Men and women statistically have different personalities and think and emote differently.

I hear the “marriage/children make women more conservative” trope fairly often these days, but so far nobody’s offered up a convincing proof that this is actually a cause-and-effect relationship, other than a few lame personal anecdotes. The direction could be reversed, or they could both be based on some broader cultural norms. In theory the answer should be out there in the census data – look at voting rates before and after marriage. You could also look at aggregates across time (not geography), which has the same problem but might at least reveal a leading/lagging relation. Anyway, all we can… Read more »

My experiences with women in professional and personal settings has been identical to what the other commenters describe. They are constantly feuding and forming new alliances based on the most idiotic reasons (e.g. “on my birthday she only brought me a card, but she got that bitch a cake!”) They are not problem solvers, are nothing close to conceptual, and CANNOT think on their feet. They freak out when things don’t go according to plan and will always look to a man they perceive as competent to bail them out. Every woman I’ve dated or am friends with has admitted… Read more »

In a public space, like an office, women always assume women are acting. The suspicion that other women aren’t what they seem really messes with their heads.

I feel for you guys that have to work around and for women…It has to be a blow to a guys self esteem to be bossed around by a female…I would quit before I would allow that to happen…So if there is any young men out there that are wondering what to have as a career and don’t ever want to be bossed around by a woman they should look into my line of work…

Lineman,

This may sound like BS, but, yesterday, out of nowhere, it struck me that being a lineman would be a job I’d really enjoy. Not kidding. I researched openings with my city, and it looks like a great job and the pay is fantastic. Do you think a guy my age (45 But very healthy and fit) would have a shot?

Yea Brother definitely…We have had guys that were in there early 50s make it through the apprenticeship…It is rough though on your body when you come through that late and it is a problem with some of the guys to be yelled at by a younger journeyman…It’s a great job Brother I’ve been in it for over 20 years and I still think they actually pay me to do this;) And yea the pay and benefits are some of the best out there…

Don’t wanna keep clogging the thread with personal stuff but thanks so much for replying. It seems quite a few men my age and older do it so I’m encouraged. Looking into Comm. College cert programs for Lineman and welding tech now

No, DaDZ, that’s for Lineman (these postings don’t step-sort correctly) and it’s a Glen Campbell reference.

I liked the bit about the woman being the baker’s oven. Without the oven, the baker is just standing there holding his loaf. Laugh out loud time, right there. The bit with the horse whinny at the mention of Catherine the Great was a nice touch.

Very interesting and insightful podcast. With respect to the biological differences between the genders and modern society’s willingness to pretend they don’t exist in order to exalt a false ideal of women’s equality (at least in physical terms), one great place to observe this in action is the CrossFit realm, especially at the highest competitive level when it’s televised each summer. CrossFit, like many other business enterprises, is deliberately planned and marketed primarily toward garnering new women customers among the millennial and Gen-X generations. The CrossFit marketing people know they’ll get men of these age groups into the gym because… Read more »

Interesting podcast, but you went way to easy on Larry Nassar. I understand what you were trying to say, but this was a very poor example. He didn’t just grope college students. He digitally penetrated pubescent girls, one as young as 6 years old, had tens of thousands of child porn images on his computer, including videos of himself molesting young girls. This is a truly sick individual.

Holy crap, THAT’S who Z was talking about? No wonder I found his comment confusing about a guy getting years in jail for groping. I cut Z a break sometimes. On the pop culture/sensational news/music/sports stuff, I think he skims and comes away with sweeping judgements. Keep in mind the guy doesn’t have cable. I get the impression he devotes his time to serious reading. Which both enriches himself, and in turn, us.

I was going to let you know that playing with analytics, and fiddling with frequencies, didn’t work. I heard the whole podcast. Then I realized your method was more subtle, and more diabolical: it’s about the content! That Xirl Science bit… how to get that out of my head? I’ll have to iron pillow cases, do some sewing, immerse myself in Jane Austen novels. And even all that might not work!

Delusions of Women in 1976.
In 1976 my cousin in New Zealand a 21 year old feminist then, told me that in the year 2000, in the Moscow Olympic games, that Wimen would compete with men in a no sex-differentiated Moscow games . She was serious and yes, this was 1976 in NZ.
Vicious angry slogans on building walls would say > all men are rapists. Feminism was virulent, pathological, insane and hysterical then and now.

Great music selections. “Girl Trouble” is a classic, but choosing famous wife-discipliner, Ike Turner’s “Rocket 88” for an essay on feminism is really appropriate. I love both husband’s and wife’s music, but good heavens being married to Tina must have been a trial, and must have required some discipline.

I think female archetypes might affect the compete-cooperate dynamic among women. An archetype would be sorority, nerd/academic, trad mom, power mom, working mom, etc (not exhaustive).

I think they bring their own flavor of cooperate/compete to the table and might be making the general idea of female competition vs cooperation harder to accept or see.

Here you go – the Myth of Female Cooperativeness: https://heartiste.wordpress.com/2018/05/02/the-myth-of-female-cooperativeness/ ============== Gossip and salt and blame-shifting fault, that’s what older girls are made of. Via reader Pepe, ¡SCIENCE! once again shits in the faces of feminists and pabulum spewing equalists. This is not the place for this comment, but then again SCIENCE: Women are way less cooperative than men: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0001691817305917 This goes against the leftist myth that the world would be a better place if women ruled. “We confirmed a puzzling gender difference: men cooperate much more than women” [in a repeated Prisoner Game]. Also, cooperation doesn’t fade over time,… Read more »

Hey Z, This is the first Power Hour I’ve listened to…while driving in traffic. Not a good idea as I was startled by the horse whinny between segments. Now that I know what to expect I should be ok. Great topic by the way. I’ve even heard women say there are too many women in leadership in primary education.
