Never Hire a Powerskirt

Looking back, we had, in the person of Teddy Roosevelt, the finest President in the history of this country. He had the spirit and determination that matched the times and the land. Then the women got the vote, and everything went to hell. While our boys was overseas fighting the Kaiser, the women got Prohibition put in. Drinking and gambling and whoring were declared unlawful. All those things which come natural to men became crimes.

–Judge Roy Bean

A quarter century ago, I was sent to my first reeducation camp. The company I was with at the time had been infected with the virus so everyone in a management position was sent off-site to be hectored about the importance of tolerance in the workplace. We did not yet have the word “diversity” to throw around as we were still in the “tolerance” stage of multicultural lunacy outbreak. At least that was the case in my part of the world so they called it “sensitivity training,” which everyone said using air quotes.

The people responsible for starting the sensitivity training were the women in the human resources department. They had changed the name of it to something stupid like “people and relationships” but it was an HR department. For reasons I’ll never understand, the men in charge of the company decided to pack the HR departments with women who immediately started making mischief. Talking to friends at the time, this was happening all over the business world. HR departments full of hens were morphing into sensitivity department full of bitter shrews.

Not long after I had returned from the reeducation camp, I was informed by HR that one of my charges had been making one of the women uncomfortable. She did not like the way he was looking at her. This woman dressed like a street walker and had to be told multiple times to stop showing off her smoking hot body at work. That made no difference. I was told I had to write him up, which I refused to do. That got me in some trouble and forever on the HR hit list, but it was the shape of things to come. My policy was going to be zero tolerance for this sort of terrorism.

That was a long time ago and things have only grown worse. The implosion of Fox News is a great example of why you should avoid hiring women.

Blogger Matt Drudge put up a headline at the top of his popular aggregation website The Drudge Report this afternoon that Ailes will exit the company with a “$40+ million parachute.” There is no link to a story, but a source subsequently told Deadline that Ailes is in exit talks, saying terms of the settlement are being hammered out tonight.

“With internal allegations mounting, it was deemed time for him to go,” the well-placed source said.

21st Century Fox, however, said in a statement: “Roger is at work  The review is ongoing. And the only agreement that is in place is his existing employment agreement.”

Ailes’ ouster comes after Fox News hostGretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against him on July 6 after her contract was not renewed.

Ailes, the architect of the Fox News as a ratings behemoth and political force, in of June 2015, signed a multi-year contract to continue running Fox News, Fox Business Network, and Fox Television Stations.

Earlier this morning, Drudge linked a headline to today’s New York Magazine story,alleging Fox News star Megyn Kelly had told 21st Century Fox’s investigators that she had been the recipient of unwanted sexual advances from Ailes about a decade ago when she was a correspondent in the Washington bureau. But Drudge used a headline saying Kelly was twisting the knife into her boss.  That post, and headline,  from the wildly popular and influential conservative blogger got media reporters to sit up and take notice.

Perhaps I am more cynical than most, but how did Ailes not see that Megyn Kelly was trouble? There’s nothing wrong with hiring bimbos to read the news on TV, just as long as the bimbos are fine with being bimbos trading on their looks. Women like Kelly trade on their looks, but they are forever bitter about it. That bitterness curdles into a viscous nastiness that almost always leads to claims of discrimination or sexual harassment, when they don’t get what they want. Once again, the facts of life are turning out to be Trumpian.

The lesson here, of course, is to never hire women like Megyn Kelly. It’s like inviting Dracula into your house. No matter how much garlic you have around your neck, you still have a bloodthirsty vampire in your midst. A good rule of thumb is to hire homely women for positions of responsibility, preferably older women. They have no illusions about how males view them. For entry level work like clerks and paralegals, hire mothers as they need the job more than they need to strike a blow for the sisterhood. They are too practical to be feminists.

Otherwise, never hire a powerskirt.

This is scary. Women are terrifying now. False rape allegations , sexual harassment …on and on. What is terrifying is that this Megyn Kelly ( megan spelled with a “y”no less) is either 1)making this shit up i.e. false witness or 2) she actually believes what happened to her was a sexual harassment and /or misconduct i.e. she’s delusional ( the Michelle Fields effect ) …

Reminds me of the old joke: “What does a woman, a hurricane, a flood, and an earthquake all have in common?

ANSWER: Sooner or later they’ll get your house.

But seriously, the reason why women will never rule the world is because they have no balls and they can’t get along with each other.

I don’t quite buy the charges against Ailes. Kimberly Guilfoyle, by far the hottest woman at Fox, has recently come to Ailes’s defense. How did the serial molester manage to miss her?

Sounds like we have a bimbo vendetta here folks.

“…..the men in charge of the company decided to pack the HR departments with women ……”

About the time you were undergoing re-education, I was working for a defense contractor. Heavy on the engineering and technical science.

How else are you going to pad your employment stats? TPTB looks at you with furrowed brow if 75% of your staff is from the Pale Penis People tribe, and another 15-20% or so is Indian and East Asian male.

You start with HR, then move of to marketing and then finance and accounting. After that you’re out of bullets.

My husband was hiring and had a woman interview for the position. She mentioned that she’d filed a sexual harassment suit against her previous employer. He didn’t say anything to her, but threw away her resume afterwards.

I don’t know how we change things but yes, I’m in favor of fewer women in the work place.

And if there were more men like you we wouldn’t be in this mess now. Every male nowadays cave-in to every form of leftist intellectual (and physical) terrorism imaginable. So we get more of it.

There is nothing to be gained by cooperating with HR.

Just an outsider’s observation of the American work ethic with regards to women in the work place – one of the reasons I believe American women are in the work place is because the American society is so consumer driven. You can’t have that big house, a SUV, a big screen TV, a boat, and two jet-skis in the garage without that second income. Something about keeping up with the Jones’. I think if Americans were just a bit more modest, they could live on a single income just like they did in the 50’s and early 60’s. Yes, I… Read more »

“For reasons I’ll never understand, the men in charge of the company decided to pack the HR departments with women who immediately started making mischief.”

This is a simple one. Companies were under pressure to hire more women, and they had nowhere useful to put them where they wouldn’t be a drag on the bottom line. Ergo, stuff them in HR to bring up the numbers.

Yeah but women are natural administrators. Going back generators women have “managed” households.

“We can no longer ignore that voice within women that says: ‘I want something more than my husband and my children and my home.’” That’s the quote that concludes the first chapter of the 1963 book that launched the war on the American family – The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan. I was just finishing up high school. But I missed the memo that women should want more. I knew what I wanted – a husband, kids and a home. Raising my kids in the seventies and eighties, I did triple duty filling in for the women who were ‘finding‘… Read more »

Thank you, sir! I am indeed blessed.

And just a note to vent that I am so sick and tired of the movies and tv shows starring skinny female bad a$$ detectives who can wrestle down a tattooed thug with one hand while sweeping their long golden locks off their face and whipping out the cuffs.

I am a strong woman because I know what that really means and who believes that men are meant to be the stronger gender physically.. Feminism has destroyed the natural balance. Tired tired tired of men being feminized. Tired I say!

Sure – watch them read the news. But it is beyond me why anyone would actually want to hear Megyn Kelly’s opinion on anything. It’s not like she’s Thomas Sowell or even Katherine Timpf – or anyone who can string together words into a coherent article with a thesis. She’s bimbo who pretends to ask tough questions while wearing a tight blouse.

FNC may be reaching a tipping point with the fake blond thing. Does the network not realize how ridiculous they look? Even poor Greta is a fake blond. These women have all sold a piece of themselves, their dignity to be more precise, to be on television. There will be gnashing of teeth in the wig, hairpiece and hair dye business when the channel crashes, which looks imminent now that the sexual harassment dragon has taken flight.

An old colleague once gave a sage piece of advice about HR..”they are all socialists at heart” and went on to explain his theory that leftists from his era (Vietnam) who couldn’t get professorships and wanted to make a real living went into the Human Resources racket. Have yet to encounter any evidence to the contrary.

I feel the same way about reporterettes and slavery reparations (and Universal Basic Income, for that matter): Fine, and after this we’re DONE. Take your check, go in peace, but now any iteration of the words “discrimination,” “racism,” “misogyny,” etc. are jail-time offenses. There will always be “harassment” in the office – hormones being what they are, someone will always have the hots for someone who doesn’t have the hots back. Lots of men in the office don’t have game; lots of women in the office get guys to do stuff for them by batting their eyelashes (and in rare… Read more »

I’ve always called HR “down the hall and around the corner”. A staff position no one in their right mind wants unless he/she is a power hungry little tyrant who loves OSHA and codes and diversity and AA and keeping the doers smacked down and in their place. I was headed through the glass ceiling before the women’s libbers got their seatbelts fastened, so they have always annoyed me. As have office girl types who dress like hookers and flirt outrageously, then cry “harrassment” at the drop of an innuendo. I worked because I had to support my children and… Read more »

I’ll agree with you and Saml Adams. HR, along with Compliance and Legal, are domains of the politically correct / non-productive staffers. I try to avoid at all costs as they will actively block my projects if I draw their attention.

Without hating women, they do get bored easily and boredom makes them do all sorts of things. They are also more prone to subjective and not objective judgements, and acting irrationally on them. It is always interesting to hear women who do work who do say they much prefer to work with men as an office full of women in like an extension of a world war. As much as I dislike islam and its posturing, they do tend to keep women away from the work place (some would say though as they tend not to do that much work… Read more »

Feminism and Islam are the bookends of civilizational dysfunction. One rushes a great civilization into decay, the other smothers it’s flowering. In the war between the sexes it’s best that neither side wins out.

Back when I was working at IBM we had a girl who liked to wear really short skirts. She would sit on the edge of your desk with her legs apart daring you to look up her skirt. She spent a lot of time trolling for sexual harassment. Many of us, including our manager, were very happy when she took one of the buyouts and left the company.
