The amount of time I spent cleaning up after women who did not it could not do their jobs was not trivial. Neither was the amount of strife caused by women deciding to cause trouble. I could have replaced every woman with an average man and gotten more work done. The best woman I knew there had realized that women did not belong, so she did her job as best that she could and tried not to cause trouble. That was as good as it got, and it was usually worse.
Most women overestimate their utility. For every woman who was good at their job, you would have five or six men who could do it just as well, and this is from a very smart pool. Once you stop picking out the very best and comparing them, it looks ever worse for women. Looking at the differences between the sexes, the only way you come close to men is those men who are near the far left end of the curve. You simply cannot compare.
I would have to agree. Of course, NAWLT applies. My sisters are competent, but we came from a family that emphasized competence. As for other women in society, not so much.
At my workplace, there are women sprinkled about. I mostly avoid them if I can. Being bear-sized with an INT death stare helps in this. One reason to avoid them is because they very often do not know what they are doing. This often leads to unreasonable pleas for help. I am more than willing to help a person who is willing to try, but more often than not, these women don’t seem to be trying.
And why might these women not really seem to be trying? Well, it probably starts young. They are given praise for just existing, they often don’t have to really accomplish anything. So through the years, they don’t really learn like guys do that they have to do what it takes to get the job done; and retain the skills that they might have learned in doing so. Reality is a harsh teacher: men have reality thrown at them, women do not.
As adults, women move through universities built for them (sociology and psychology degrees, etc). Then they obtain jobs and promotions through affirmative action. And everybody suffers.
One question that comes to mind: “What percentage of these women realize that they are incompetent?” Surely, deep down, they realize that they are not as capable as they make themselves out to be. Perhaps they know it and don’t care. They are women, special creatures under the rules.
Though men once again, do allow this to happen. I have had many a “damsel in distress” come to me looking for favors (non-sexual). If there is an apparent attempt at trying, then I will help. However, attempts at manipulation are common; women using their feminine wiles on me. They are typically shocked when they receive the INT death stare in response. The shock alerts me to the fact that such tactics have worked before. Men, stop doing the random woman’s homework.
Make women demonstrate competence. Equal rights and all.
