Gender inequality and discrimination in employment … lobbying 

A follow up to my previous blog post.

Here I want to highlight the recent pressure tech companies started getting to hire more females.

In the lobbying effort the feminist movement have been labeling the low number of females in tech companies as “Gender Inequality”.

In reality, the problem is that there are few women in STEM, maybe simply because usually girls do not like math and engineering domains, as a result, there are less female programmers and engineers than men …

As a result, Tech companies have to get an all female staff for marketing, Human Resources, and any other department that do not involve STEM, just so that they can increase their percentage of female employees … and that ladies and gentlemen is discrimination against males looking for jobs in HR, advertising or any none STEM field.

Another silent discrimination we all ignore, is when females get chosen over males simply because the boss find the candidate sexually attractive. Candidates for a job, should perform interviews and be recruited from behind curtains, and that is specially necessary for small and medium businesses where the owner is usually a male and they usually select women for jobs because of their looks, while when the owner is a female the women get selected as well because it’s easier for a woman to manage other women.

So this is a real gender inequality and discrimination issue.

 

update:

A comment i found online, in reference to a WSJ article, where Facebook is accused of gender bias, and i find the comment very relevant to this article:

“According to the analysis, female engineers received 35 percent more rejections of their code than male engineers. ”

Explanation for this couldn’t possibly be that female programmers simply write crappier code, could it? And it is not possible that this is linked to companies being under pressure to hire more females just to improve their gender ratio, even if it means giving the job to a less skilled candidate?

Of course we shouldn’t even consider the most obvious and direct explanation. Females are never responsible for their outcomes. Unless their outcomes are positive, of course. Then it is proof of their superiority.

If code written by female programmers was rejected 35 percent *less* often the spin would be that female programmers are better and that companies would be smart to hire them over men.

Gender equality & Gender discrimination: the reality !

In the spirit of the contrarian opinions, i have decided to write today about a subject we have been hearing about a lot lately. The approach i’ll take is based on what i observed even-though, it’s not the popular point of view.
Again, i precise, this is a contrarian blog (the opinions are contrary to what is popular these days), the opinions are based on facts, so if you can’t handle facts, F!off.

Gender Equality ,

what is the reality of Gender discrimination?

I have been pondering on this subject in my head since at least a year, there was many articles at the time about how few women are in tech, and many considered the tech sector as discriminating against women…

Since then, i have been trying to analyze the reality of gender discrimination.

First, i would like to distinguish between the women rights activists of the 1800’s – to 1960/70 and the Feminists of the modern age, you can not in any way compare these 2.
Women rights activists were fighting for basic rights and proper rights, like learning, voting, driving, etc …
As for the feminists of these days, they are fighting for privileges and quotas.

This being said, that does not negate the fact, that in many parts of the worlds – not the western world though – many women are being oppressed, and gender discrimination is a reality!

 

What is the role of males ?

As a biologist, i tend to compare humans to other organisms …

Some female insects, devour the male right after mating with it. Some other animals keep the male population to a minimum.
For some species, males have a harem of females, and for others they compete to get the female.

From this point of view, we see that our human species was always almost equal in numbers of females and males, hence no importance of a gender over the other.
We also realize the role males had to play, from providing food to protecting the tribe, the reason for that role is that males are not only much stronger and robust than women, they are also bigger, which is an important factor in protection against wild beasts or enemy tribes.
Due to this, men became the doers, and women took care of the social and family life, and thousands of years of repetition made this role become a habit.
Since, humanity moved into a system based on money, and then societies grew to giant size, and roles in societies became so specialized that women were able to become doers as well.

Gender discrimination : it’s discrimination against men

A couple observations, had me thinking that actually men are the ones that are being discriminated against, and in a way society screwed men without them knowing it.

1. For men we have to make a living because we are men, we have to do to be, it’s not the case for women that can just take care of their beauty and have a wonderful life. women vs men roles in society
Just listen to this lady that explained the situation amazingly :

2. For men when we hit rock bottom, we hit it alone!
Just take a look around you, and compare the number of homeless men vs the number of homeless women …
Yep, men are the absolute majority of the homeless population, that’s because women often jump ships before the ship sinks. They can do so because women can find a date or a new man easily, and moving in with the new boyfriend is seen as a normal thing, but the opposite is not true.

3. Women have a cheat card for life!
Until recently, i naively thought that all prostitutes are victims of gangs that force them to work in prostitution and steal their money … I was wrong!
I met this prostitute, through a relative, on a social occasion. She opened my eyes to the fact that some women, with less than average beauty, and a lot of makeup, can make in few hours a week, more than what CEO’s working 24/7  can make in a month!
This had me thinking, and after watching some documentaries, etc … i realized, that yes, many women are victims to organized prostitution rings, but many more  have been doing it on their own.
In a documentary, a prostitute said, that she does not wish to stop the work she does, because she simply can never find a job that pays her as well, to continue living the luxury life, she is doing now!

Another important cheat card, is the “in office affairs”, that mostly happen between a male boss and a female employee, true that some may be abuse by the boss, but, it is also a known fact, that many women use their “charm” to go up the corporate ladder faster than their colleagues.

In this category, we can also classify the young women, that get married to old rich men.

4. Easier for women to find jobs.
These days, it’s much easier for a woman to find a job, there are several sectors that are entirely dominated by women, even though men have the skills to be employed they are not. And we are seeing more and more women working in jobs that require skills usually associated with men.
So basically when the choice is a women, no one objects, but when the choice is a man, we should check the gender quotas of the company!!

5. When women leave, they take half of what you own!
When couples divorce, they split their wealth, right? Wrong! When was the last time you heard about a man taking half of his ex-wife’s wealth ? Never? Exactly! Now how many ex-wife took half her husband hard earned wealth … countless.
Where is the fairness, this might be right back when women stayed at home to take care of the kids, while men worked, but now days, when both men and women work, why in the world should any one get a part of the other person hard earned money?!!!
I read a heart breaking article recently, a German man decided to literally split in half everything he owned, he even cut in half his car and iphone! he recorded it presenting the video with :
“”Thank you for 12 ‘beautiful years,’ Laura! You’ve really earned half.” ”

 

Conclusion:

Back to what bothers me the most, why are feminists pushing for more gender equality in tech companies, meaning hiring more female employees, when most women do not even like this sector.
They do not have the required skills, and yet they want more employment opportunity in this sector, this is not gender equality, this is lobbying.
The idea that “what is ours is ours, and half of what is yours is ours” is not a call for gender equality is any way.

 

 

 

Topless Jihad, FEMEN a good business

If i need to give a title to my blog it would be cultural tolerance, i have lived in different communities and closely interacted with people belonging to different nations, cultures, religions …

The thing i learned is to respect other people religions & cultures, and i despise those who try to get financial profit from attacking other cultures & or religions.

I have been reading about Femen a group of nobrain feminist activists based in Ukraine one of the biggest prostitution capitals of Europe and the world (40% of Ukraine economy is shadow economy).

What does this group do? they take topless pictures protesting against anything that would bring the cameras and the journalists!

Why? don’t be fooled not all organizations seek the greater good, organizations are a profitable business! the donations organizations get are unbelievable!  FEMEN’s office in the Ukrainian capital, costs the organization over $2,500 monthly and each member’s salary was around $1,000 (average salary in Ukraine is $300). Radio Svoboda claimed to have information that FEMEN activists were paid EUR 2,500 a month and protesters EUR 1,000.

So what do these women do? whatever it takes to get media attention and donations, after all it’s a good business!

So they show up naked, to protest anything that they think would get media attention, WHAT A GOOD BUSINESS!

lately they turned their eyes towards the Islamic world, well afterall there’s so much opportunities in the middle east and Muslim world to get headlines … and furthermore they would be described as freedom fighters 😛

So they started staging events, like if there’s a lack of causes they can fight for, they can fight for girls education in Afghanistan > but that would not suit their sexual protest style,
they could fight for women driving in Saudi arabia > but again they can not protest topless for this, it would be meaningless.
they can fight for nationality rights for kids of Lebanese women married to foreign men > then again that doesn’t enter in their style.
they can fight against rape, gang rape in india, brazil, …
they can fight against honor killing, domestic violence, sexism…
But NO, because they can not explain running naked as a sign of protest!

So instead they recruit girls in the middle east to post naked photos and wait for a an expected reaction, (in the middle east you can get a fatwa or death threats for the slightest things, there’s always a crazy imam somewhere that can consider what you are doing as a kind of  corrupting the population, but who said that they are taken seriously ?!)

This what happened, a 19 year old Femen Tunisian activist posted on  Tunisian Femen facebook page topless photos :

As expected, she got a fatwa against her, so the FEMEN organized Topless Jihad day, protesting naked (as usual), and getting international headlines ….

let’s recap:

if they know that would happen, why did they pay the poor girl to do such a thing ? … again it’s all about donations and media attention …

Furthermore, such an act even if there was no threats associated with it would label the girl as a “slµt” in the very conservative country, but wait, even in the much less conservative west a 19 yr old girl posting a topless picture of herself on a page with thousands of people would not be considered a good idea, and would cause the young girl social troubles …

FEMEN is a dangerous organization, because they do not care about the safety of their members as long as they get headlines and donations.

FEMEN protesting is stupid, and degrading for women, and i’m pretty sure there’s much more effective ways to protest than having a group of slµts running naked.
