Sock It To Trump, Ladies!

“Sweden’s deputy PM is causing a stir after posting an image appearing to parody Donald Trump’s signing of an anti-abortion executive order.
Isabella Lovin, who is also the country’s climate minister, published a photo that shows her signing a new law surrounded by female colleagues.
The image has drawn comparisons with Mr Trump’s photo in which no women were present.”

I love it. One picture says 1K words about Trumpism, the belief that a few old men have some monopoly on knowledge.

    Sweden is a lost cause. Here is a Swedish cop reported to police as a “racist” for telling the truth about what mass immigration has done to Sweden. This is what he said:

    For a moment there I thought you had figured out “copy and paste”. Nope.

    Why, Pog, for a moment there I thought you were talking about yourself.

    You could practically engrave that sentiment on your gravestone, given the last ten years or so of your wittering.

    Chuckle. I’ve had a lot of different school principals in my teaching career. The very best, by far, was a woman. She really got the job done in difficult circumstances and inspired everyone around her to do their best. I’ve dealt with a lot of government and business offices. Women run those really well even if their boss is some old fat guy. Almost every school office is run by a woman who knows everything and helps everyone get the job done. The Canadian politician who did more than anyone to get rid of the damned firearm registry was a woman. A lot of men stood around wringing their hands saying it was a done deal and she just kept working until she won. I think Canada would be well off if she became prime minister. She got 61% of the votes in her riding recently and previously had 76%. People love her and she makes sense.

    There’s different ways to look at the data, but the big picture is women do earn less in America – because they choose to. They would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital than stay all night at work working on a proposal.
    Maybe some of them are a little smarter.
    34 hours a week for someone living on their own be it male or female.

    Now married man with the wife doing the housework is good for 47 hours a week. The reverse is also true. So staying up doing a all nighter to get a proposal in can end up compromising your immune system so you come the typhoid mary of your office.

    The reality human body has limits you exceed them might be profitable short-term but long-term its not.

    The reality here is nasty. Out of the two sexes the sex that should pull a all nighter is female. Female immune system compromise by a little overwork will be still quite functional. Males not so much. Yes this is where things get really stupid right. Its also why nurses working in hospitals make more sense to be female due to generic advantage. Of course no matter the generic advantage too much overwork will still defeat it.

    Women staying home with the kids long term is not based on lot of valid medical data. Lot of work places if you look at how they operate are set to suit the female generics not the males. Male immune system is optimised for hunting pray where they are not in close contact with other parties in the group. So staying at home taking care of the kids could in fact be healthier for the man todo and have the female go to the office.

    Reality what happens in lots of countries with men and women are based on historic stereo types that have no base in medical data for getting the best out of men and women in productivity.

    dougman the far too emotional arguement is also not based on medial data.
    The reality is shocking on this point when you get into the medical data. Women have predictable PMS when their emotions will be unstable. Men hello problem they have the same PMS symptoms but its called IMS its more frequent and totally not predictable. So bar fights and a lot of other events can trace to IMS.

    So if you argument that people who are too emotional should not be in business then medical data says no men should be unless they have had their balls removed. The same applies to women for the most stable personality but women are more stable than men. Turns on there was a medical reason why china in history had high diplomats castrated.

    Wonder what would happen if coming a politician required de-sexing. It would remove the mental instability caused by the reproductive system in men and women.

    “I suppose so. I’ve seen many women do amazingly good things in realms that men are forever messing up.”

    Name one.

    To answer your question as to why, the majority of women are far too emotional to hold such high positions. People would be happier if women would stop pretending to be men, feminism has made women less happy.

    There’s different ways to look at the data, but the big picture is women do earn less in America – because they choose to. They would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital than stay all night at work working on a proposal. So they end up earning less. They’re less ambitious, and I think this is sort of God’s way, this is nature’s way, of saying women should be home with the kids; they’re happier there.

  7. dougman wrote, “are you a feminist loonie?”

    I suppose so. I’ve seen many women do amazingly good things in realms that men are forever messing up. Really, in the 21st century, why does Trump have so few women in his cabinet? Remember? We were told how he respects women and had many women in positions of power in Trump Inc. Where are they?

    In my life, I’ve worked in several different areas where women were treated differently. In physics there were only one or two women in the whole department at U of M who were not secretaries. In schools, almost all elementary teachers were women while almost all high school teachers and principals were men. Most of the women I met in my working years were wonderful, talented people who did good work while actually giving a damn about people. Look at Trump. Everyone he meets is either great or and idiot… depending on the day. That kind of belligerence automatically alienates nearly half of humanity. How does that make USA great? How does that improve anything? How does it get things done? Poorly, apparently, judging by how well his immigration order went. Where is the brilliant businessman now? Making stupid decisions on Shabbat because his son in law is not at work…

    Pogsey, are you a feminist loonie?

    Instead of a silly photo OP, they should be concerned over the loss of their cultural heritage by way of Taharrush.
