  1. Promoting a white women is racist, isn’t it. Or have I misunderstood something?

    But it explains why every second business story in those publications makes reference these days to sustainability, climate change, living wages, poor women, DIE and blah, blah, blah.

Which btw is part of their jealousy-hate dynamic for Becky's hair and white women's hair. When you have to resort to greasy weaves you know you are effed to a fare thee well. But all part of their incessant blackety black black rap.
    So they have crappy hair, crappy inhumane rap music.

    But there is some extraordinary journalism being done by women and men in the alternative news. Not all, but many.

    , @Muggles
    @vhrm

    Yes, this tells us a lot.

    It also tells us nothing about the "intellectual history" of said women, their education, upbringing, family status (spouse, children), sexual orientation, public political involvement/voting/social media, and things like race.

    Just how do these metrics compare with readership/viewership of the American public? How "in touch" are they with Mr. and Ms. Average Joe? How many are from conservative families versus left/liberal ones? Rural versus urban. Bicoastal versus fly over?

    I think we can guess at the answers but it would be good to have facts. You know, the stuff that most men value in journalism.

    My hypothesis here is that these propaganda "news" outlets are virtue signaling so as to somehow protect themselves from Woke criticism. Or other left purge excuses.

    Here are some things none of these people (women) have done: served in the military, worked at any hard labor, served in a first responder job, received a degree in any STEM subject, owned a small business, started a new business, worked in a professional capacity as for paying clients, picked up a bar tab, left a tip larger than 17%, dealt with an unruly drunk, gone to a sports event solo, done serious lawn or farm work, etc. (Feel free to add your own).

    So while these women are likely smarter than average (and uglier, like most journos) they live in the middle/upper class female bubble. Sure they might have brothers or cousins who are male. But none of them has had to dirty those polished fingernails. Zero. Or faced actual physical danger. Oh, and probably they can't drive a manual transmission car, or truck, or fly a airplane. Never seen the inside of a warehouse, loading dock or factory floor.

    But they are happy to hate white men or anyone else (or anyone with sincere religious feelings) who rejects the Narrative they pump out daily. "A spoonful of lies makes the medicine go down."

    vhrm, the editor of my childhood favorite magazine, National Geographic, introduced herself as the first woman and first Jew to be editor at Nat Geo. She then proceeded to tear down everything that the NG stood for, describing the past history of NG as racist, xenophobic and misogynistic. And, for some reason known only to her, she said no more pictures of beautiful polynesian women. I am not going to mention her name. Oh, she also mea culpa'd about calling tribes "primitive."

    The media is screwed because it got bad enough that it let women in charge, ie women ascending to the top is merely the last step in their descent. Of course, as Rob points out, most male journalists are conformists who aren't that bright, so the vast majority of men aren't qualified for the top spot either. But what used to happen in these organizations is that there was a tournament among all the men to get to the top, and an elite few used to fight their way up. Now, all standards are gone and the women are pushed up without having to fight it out as hard.

    It hardly matters, as online media is killing off legacy media anyway. And that's a tournament the likes of which you've never seen before, and of course, even more dominated by men. That's not to say there aren't some exceptionally talented women too, but as Larry Summers pointed out, the tails, ie the criminals and the CEOs, are dominated by men.

  11. This is something that seems irrelevant, after all these people aren’t really ‘in control’, they’re managers with titles from the past that imply they still act like something else.

    But it’s still the case that women provide an environment where SJW ideas (Whether they agree with them or not) can move around a little more unchecked both from greater perception of acceptance from those who would champion them and greater weakness to conformism and appeal of the ideas themselves.

    There’s a reason why Tumblr, which became the unofficial home of horse girls on the internet, turned into a post-modern CRT mad house so quickly.

    https://psmag.com/social-justice/how-tumblr-taught-social-justice-to-a-generation-of-teenagers

    Through the early 2010s, Tumblr was known as a haven for teenage girls, alternately mocked and curiously profiled. Back in 2013, 46 percent of its 34 million monthly visitors were between 16 and 24. Its lax moderation was part of the appeal: there was no censorship of pornography, erotica, or nudity in general, though this also allowed darker subcultures, like self-harm and pro-anorexia circles, to flourish. But, more than anything, Tumblr was known as the home of “social justice warriors” and a bastion of online liberalism. Even the New York Times profiled “Tumblr activism” back in 2014.

    A post about marriage equality didn’t feel out of place in a blog populated by cat pictures or GIFs of Benedict Cumberbatch—it was part of the package. In fact, GIFs and fan art of Cumberbatch in the BBC’s Sherlock were used to make the point.

    Ideas and concepts that were mostly forgotten since the early 90s and even the 70s in terms of hardcore CRT found a critical mass of users who could be inculcated into them and act to transmit them into the broader social media environment. Teenage and young adult women with BPD are the power users of the internet in the age where social media platforms have become centralised, used by people under their real names and whose narratives are seen by almost everyone in real time and processed by the media to craft further narratives. And those girls love CRT, love identity politics and hate anything technical or about labour or industrial policy.

    Steve keeps wondering what happened. The internet went from anonymous nerdy men on the autistic spectrum making up the bulk of ‘content creators’ on the internet and being effectively the only people discussing politics on the internet (Not that people much noticed since it took place on specific forums that no particular status with the media) to one where young women with BPD became the power users of real name social media that was also a centralised form of communication with Twitter.

    At a macro level GamerGate (Which occurred in late 2014 not long after the ‘Great Awokening’ started) could be seen as a conflict emerging from high-functioning autistic nerdy guys being attacked by histrionic women with BPD who were rising in prominence in what had been the nerdy guys domain.

  12. Rob says:

    HBD-adjacent people say women are more conformist and prone to mass delusions, but is it really true? I mean, when it comes to, say, clothes, men are far more conformist than women. Quite a lot of guys really value ‘being a team player’, which largely means conforming. All the stuff about groupthink came from analyzing situations where there were few, if any, women, Armies are far more male than female.

    Corporations of yesteryear were both totally male and totally conformist. It is often easier to see behaviors in groups that are not your own. Black men, for example, are humorously conformist to their (usually retarded) standards.

    I might get that at the extreme, there are more extremely nonconformist men, not many female female serial killers, and it is hard to be less conformist than that.

    Are there any actual studies of whether male or female peer groups are more conforming?

    Yes.

    ***
    Sex differences in conformity were examined as participants approached two ATMs, one of which was occupied by three confederates and the other immediately available. The number of men and women in the line in front of one of the ATMs was manipulated (3 men or 3 women), and an unobtrusive observer recorded the sex of each participant. The results indicated that women were more likely than men to wait in line to use the ATM regardless of the makeup of the line. Thus, the present study provides evidence in favor of the idea that sex differences in conformity are evident on a common task performed in a natural setting.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15587205/

    ----
    OTOH, while women are more conformist, men are more cooperative.

    Although it is commonly believed that women are kinder and more cooperative than men, there is conflicting evidence for this assertion. Current theories of sex differences in social behavior suggest that it may be useful to examine in what situations men and women are likely to differ in cooperation. Here, we derive predictions from both sociocultural and evolutionary perspectives on context-specific sex differences in cooperation, and we conduct a unique meta-analytic study of 272 effect sizes-sampled across 50 years of research-on social dilemmas to examine several potential moderators. The overall average effect size is not statistically different from zero (d = -0.05), suggesting that men and women do not differ in their overall amounts of cooperation. However, the association between sex and cooperation is moderated by several key features of the social context: Male-male interactions are more cooperative than female-female interactions (d = 0.16), yet women cooperate more than men in mixed-sex interactions (d = -0.22). In repeated interactions, men are more cooperative than women. Women were more cooperative than men in larger groups and in more recent studies, but these differences disappeared after statistically controlling for several study characteristics.

  19. V.S. Naipaul famously (and notoriously) said that he could read a few sentences of what an author wrote, and tell whether it was written by a man or a woman. I agree. A corollary is that you can tell whether a newspaper is edited by a woman. Or, as Another Dad put it succinctly, “it shows.”

    (Another corollary: Often I can tell that a letter to the editor was written by a Jewish author. There’s something about the tone. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Then I look at the name on bottom of the letter, and sure enough, my instinct was right. Maybe I am reacting to the liberal substance of the letter, but I don’t think so; it’s the tone)

    I had to finally stop listening to NPR after decades of tuning in (I can remember it playing in my mom's car on the way to preschool in the late 70s). Despite the liberal bias, the programming was pretty good. Until a few years ago, that is.

    It isn't even the politics that really made it unbearable. It's just become kind of disturbing and creepy, like listening to some smarmy old white lady talking dirty innuendo with a gigolo in the Bahamas.

    And then the guys they have are about equally repulsive. They sound like Woody Allen would if he were homosexual.

    Back in the day, your parents would yell at you for sitting too close to the TV screen, but then came monitors and you sat close to the CRT screen all day.

    Most of the radiation emitted by CRTs came from the coils at the back and the leaded glass of the tube actually shielded you from most of it - the danger zone was below and behind the CRT. So if you were, say a bartender with a TV over your head, that was not a good place to be. Or if you were in a computer room with double rows of monitors back to back, you were getting blasted by the monitors in the next row, not the one you were using.

    This is something that seems irrelevant, after all these people aren't really 'in control', they're managers with titles from the past that imply they still act like something else.

    But it's still the case that women provide an environment where SJW ideas (Whether they agree with them or not) can move around a little more unchecked both from greater perception of acceptance from those who would champion them and greater weakness to conformism and appeal of the ideas themselves.

    There's a reason why Tumblr, which became the unofficial home of horse girls on the internet, turned into a post-modern CRT mad house so quickly.

    https://psmag.com/social-justice/how-tumblr-taught-social-justice-to-a-generation-of-teenagers

    Through the early 2010s, Tumblr was known as a haven for teenage girls, alternately mocked and curiously profiled. Back in 2013, 46 percent of its 34 million monthly visitors were between 16 and 24. Its lax moderation was part of the appeal: there was no censorship of pornography, erotica, or nudity in general, though this also allowed darker subcultures, like self-harm and pro-anorexia circles, to flourish. But, more than anything, Tumblr was known as the home of "social justice warriors" and a bastion of online liberalism. Even the New York Times profiled "Tumblr activism" back in 2014.

    A post about marriage equality didn't feel out of place in a blog populated by cat pictures or GIFs of Benedict Cumberbatch—it was part of the package. In fact, GIFs and fan art of Cumberbatch in the BBC's Sherlock were used to make the point.
     

    Ideas and concepts that were mostly forgotten since the early 90s and even the 70s in terms of hardcore CRT found a critical mass of users who could be inculcated into them and act to transmit them into the broader social media environment. Teenage and young adult women with BPD are the power users of the internet in the age where social media platforms have become centralised, used by people under their real names and whose narratives are seen by almost everyone in real time and processed by the media to craft further narratives. And those girls love CRT, love identity politics and hate anything technical or about labour or industrial policy.

    Steve keeps wondering what happened. The internet went from anonymous nerdy men on the autistic spectrum making up the bulk of 'content creators' on the internet and being effectively the only people discussing politics on the internet (Not that people much noticed since it took place on specific forums that no particular status with the media) to one where young women with BPD became the power users of real name social media that was also a centralised form of communication with Twitter.

    At a macro level GamerGate (Which occurred in late 2014 not long after the 'Great Awokening' started) could be seen as a conflict emerging from high-functioning autistic nerdy guys being attacked by histrionic women with BPD who were rising in prominence in what had been the nerdy guys domain.

    There's a reason why Tumblr, which became the unofficial home of horse girls on the internet, turned into a post-modern CRT mad house so quickly.

    https://psmag.com/social-justice/how-tumblr-taught-social-justice-to-a-generation-of-teenagers

    Through the early 2010s, Tumblr was known as a haven for teenage girls, alternately mocked and curiously profiled. Back in 2013, 46 percent of its 34 million monthly visitors were between 16 and 24. Its lax moderation was part of the appeal: there was no censorship of pornography, erotica, or nudity in general, though this also allowed darker subcultures, like self-harm and pro-anorexia circles, to flourish. But, more than anything, Tumblr was known as the home of "social justice warriors" and a bastion of online liberalism. Even the New York Times profiled "Tumblr activism" back in 2014.

    A post about marriage equality didn't feel out of place in a blog populated by cat pictures or GIFs of Benedict Cumberbatch—it was part of the package. In fact, GIFs and fan art of Cumberbatch in the BBC's Sherlock were used to make the point.
     

    Ideas and concepts that were mostly forgotten since the early 90s and even the 70s in terms of hardcore CRT found a critical mass of users who could be inculcated into them and act to transmit them into the broader social media environment. Teenage and young adult women with BPD are the power users of the internet in the age where social media platforms have become centralised, used by people under their real names and whose narratives are seen by almost everyone in real time and processed by the media to craft further narratives. And those girls love CRT, love identity politics and hate anything technical or about labour or industrial policy.

    Steve keeps wondering what happened. The internet went from anonymous nerdy men on the autistic spectrum making up the bulk of 'content creators' on the internet and being effectively the only people discussing politics on the internet (Not that people much noticed since it took place on specific forums that no particular status with the media) to one where young women with BPD became the power users of real name social media that was also a centralised form of communication with Twitter.

    At a macro level GamerGate (Which occurred in late 2014 not long after the 'Great Awokening' started) could be seen as a conflict emerging from high-functioning autistic nerdy guys being attacked by histrionic women with BPD who were rising in prominence in what had been the nerdy guys domain.

    It's all Tumblr now.

    Back in the day, your parents would yell at you for sitting too close to the TV screen, but then came monitors and you sat close to the CRT screen all day.

    Most of the radiation emitted by CRTs came from the coils at the back and the leaded glass of the tube actually shielded you from most of it – the danger zone was below and behind the CRT. So if you were, say a bartender with a TV over your head, that was not a good place to be. Or if you were in a computer room with double rows of monitors back to back, you were getting blasted by the monitors in the next row, not the one you were using.

    V.S. Naipaul famously (and notoriously) said that he could read a few sentences of what an author wrote, and tell whether it was written by a man or a woman. I agree. A corollary is that you can tell whether a newspaper is edited by a woman. Or, as Another Dad put it succinctly, “it shows.”

    (Another corollary: Often I can tell that a letter to the editor was written by a Jewish author. There’s something about the tone. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Then I look at the name on bottom of the letter, and sure enough, my instinct was right. Maybe I am reacting to the liberal substance of the letter, but I don’t think so; it’s the tone)

Of course, as Rob points out, most male journalists are conformists who aren’t that bright, so the vast majority of men aren’t qualified for the top spot either. But what used to happen in these organizations is that there was a tournament among all the men to get to the top, and an elite few used to fight their way up. Now, all standards are gone and the women are pushed up without having to fight it out as hard.

    It hardly matters, as online media is killing off legacy media anyway. And that’s a tournament the likes of which you’ve never seen before, and of course, even more dominated by men. That’s not to say there aren’t some exceptionally talented women too, but as Larry Summers pointed out, the tails, ie the criminals and the CEOs, are dominated by men.

    My heart goes out to innocent civilians everywhere, but certainly (to the extent that the people of Gaza choose their leadership at all) many Palestinian civilians have made poor choices in their choice of leadership, backing cowardly leaders who chose to hide themselves and their military installations in the midst of densely populated civilian areas. The Israelis take the utmost precautions in preventing civilian casualties but sometimes it is impossible because they are required to exercise self-defense and stop the rain of rockets that is falling on the heads of their civilian population. Whereas of course, the Hamas rockets land on military targets only rarely and purely by luck and in the main strike ONLY civilians. There is no equivalency between what the Israelis do to strike military targets with sometimes unavoidable collateral damage to civilians and the war crimes that Hamas commits when they intentionally aim their rockets at Israeli population centers. Keep in mind that if the Israelis really wanted to, they could level all of Gaza to the ground whereas the only reason Hamas does not kill even more Israeli civilians is not for lack of trying their level best.

    HBD-adjacent people say women are more conformist and prone to mass delusions, but is it really true? I mean, when it comes to, say, clothes, men are far more conformist than women. Quite a lot of guys really value ‘being a team player’, which largely means conforming. All the stuff about groupthink came from analyzing situations where there were few, if any, women, Armies are far more male than female.

    Corporations of yesteryear were both totally male and totally conformist. It is often easier to see behaviors in groups that are not your own. Black men, for example, are humorously conformist to their (usually retarded) standards.

    Yes, this tells us a lot.

    It also tells us nothing about the “intellectual history” of said women, their education, upbringing, family status (spouse, children), sexual orientation, public political involvement/voting/social media, and things like race.

    Just how do these metrics compare with readership/viewership of the American public? How “in touch” are they with Mr. and Ms. Average Joe? How many are from conservative families versus left/liberal ones? Rural versus urban. Bicoastal versus fly over?

    I think we can guess at the answers but it would be good to have facts. You know, the stuff that most men value in journalism.

    My hypothesis here is that these propaganda “news” outlets are virtue signaling so as to somehow protect themselves from Woke criticism. Or other left purge excuses.

    Here are some things none of these people (women) have done: served in the military, worked at any hard labor, served in a first responder job, received a degree in any STEM subject, owned a small business, started a new business, worked in a professional capacity as for paying clients, picked up a bar tab, left a tip larger than 17%, dealt with an unruly drunk, gone to a sports event solo, done serious lawn or farm work, etc. (Feel free to add your own).

    So while these women are likely smarter than average (and uglier, like most journos) they live in the middle/upper class female bubble. Sure they might have brothers or cousins who are male. But none of them has had to dirty those polished fingernails. Zero. Or faced actual physical danger. Oh, and probably they can’t drive a manual transmission car, or truck, or fly a airplane. Never seen the inside of a warehouse, loading dock or factory floor.

    But they are happy to hate white men or anyone else (or anyone with sincere religious feelings) who rejects the Narrative they pump out daily. “A spoonful of lies makes the medicine go down.”

    The current issue isn’t dignity it’s evictions of Arabs from the homes they own to make way for Jews. It’s in one of those Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem. The Arabs aren’t being evicted for non payment of mortgages rent or property tax. They are being evicted so jews, aggressive jews can move into the Arab homes and businesses. Homes and businesses the Arabs inherited. Homes and businesses often owned by the same family for generations.

    How would you like it if a platoon of armed soldiers showed up at your house one day, and ordered you and your family to leave within one day? So some invaders could move in?

    If one wants to really think about places where women can dominate, it should be politics. Women are less likely to be sociopaths and are considered more trustworthy. In addition, as health care, education, pensions, and social welfare programs squeeze out the rest of government spending, it would make sense that government would become women’s work.

    As per my reply to Herzog, I find the "dignity" rhetoric part of what I see as the affectation* I alluded-to. (*As Kevin Michael Grace put it.)

    But to suggest that the Palestinian Arabs in Gaza have no more a legitimate grievance against the Zionist State (as well as the militant settlers in the disputed territories beyond the 1967 borders) than ghetto thugs who savage each other over the most petty slights?

    (No matter how ultimately unjustified, misplaced, or self-defeating one may consider the violence on the part of even the former.) Seriously?

    Replies: @Jack D

    My heart goes out to innocent civilians everywhere, but certainly (to the extent that the people of Gaza choose their leadership at all) many Palestinian civilians have made poor choices in their choice of leadership, backing cowardly leaders who chose to hide themselves and their military installations in the midst of densely populated civilian areas. The Israelis take the utmost precautions in preventing civilian casualties but sometimes it is impossible because they are required to exercise self-defense and stop the rain of rockets that is falling on the heads of their civilian population. Whereas of course, the Hamas rockets land on military targets only rarely and purely by luck and in the main strike ONLY civilians. There is no equivalency between what the Israelis do to strike military targets with sometimes unavoidable collateral damage to civilians and the war crimes that Hamas commits when they intentionally aim their rockets at Israeli population centers. Keep in mind that if the Israelis really wanted to, they could level all of Gaza to the ground whereas the only reason Hamas does not kill even more Israeli civilians is not for lack of trying their level best.

    HBD-adjacent people say women are more conformist and prone to mass delusions, but is it really true? I mean, when it comes to, say, clothes, men are far more conformist than women. Quite a lot of guys really value ‘being a team player’, which largely means conforming. All the stuff about groupthink came from analyzing situations where there were few, if any, women, Armies are far more male than female.

    Corporations of yesteryear were both totally male and totally conformist. It is often easier to see behaviors in groups that are not your own. Black men, for example, are humorously conformist to their (usually retarded) standards.

    I might get that at the extreme, there are more extremely nonconformist men, not many female female serial killers, and it is hard to be less conformist than that.

    Are there any actual studies of whether male or female peer groups are more conforming?

    Yes.

    ***
    Sex differences in conformity were examined as participants approached two ATMs, one of which was occupied by three confederates and the other immediately available. The number of men and women in the line in front of one of the ATMs was manipulated (3 men or 3 women), and an unobtrusive observer recorded the sex of each participant. The results indicated that women were more likely than men to wait in line to use the ATM regardless of the makeup of the line. Thus, the present study provides evidence in favor of the idea that sex differences in conformity are evident on a common task performed in a natural setting.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15587205/

    —-
    OTOH, while women are more conformist, men are more cooperative.

    Although it is commonly believed that women are kinder and more cooperative than men, there is conflicting evidence for this assertion. Current theories of sex differences in social behavior suggest that it may be useful to examine in what situations men and women are likely to differ in cooperation. Here, we derive predictions from both sociocultural and evolutionary perspectives on context-specific sex differences in cooperation, and we conduct a unique meta-analytic study of 272 effect sizes-sampled across 50 years of research-on social dilemmas to examine several potential moderators. The overall average effect size is not statistically different from zero (d = -0.05), suggesting that men and women do not differ in their overall amounts of cooperation. However, the association between sex and cooperation is moderated by several key features of the social context: Male-male interactions are more cooperative than female-female interactions (d = 0.16), yet women cooperate more than men in mixed-sex interactions (d = -0.22). In repeated interactions, men are more cooperative than women. Women were more cooperative than men in larger groups and in more recent studies, but these differences disappeared after statistically controlling for several study characteristics.
