A Dilemma That Is Not A Dilemma


Let us consider this academic paper:

Gender jobs: Dilemmas of Gender Studies education and employability in Sweden

It considers former Gender Studies students and how they are getting in the work world.  Here is the conclusion,

Ultimately, the high employability of the former students presents an ideological dilemma: they come to work within, and strive to be employed by, a labor market that is not feminist, but rather has implemented certain feminist issues: economic independence and labor force participation for individual women (Larner 2000). In their discussions about studies and work, this dilemma is present throughout: they want to get a good job, a job with a proper title, and at the same time they want to change the world and the very (capitalist) logics and mechanisms they strive to work within.

Let us try to figure out what they are saying here.  Apparently lots of these women want jobs with fancy titles, fine salaries and such.  Because, after all, who wouldn’t want that?  Well the answer is: them.  It seems that the labor market is not feminist and it is capitalistic.  I am not quite sure what not feminist means, but we will get to that later.  What they probably mean by capitalistic is this,

Indeed, and the results are typically paid for by customers that actually value them.  So things that people are actually will to pay their own money for get done.  This seems to be a rather good arrangement

As for the labor market not being feminist, this is an odd thing to decipher.  It is true that all Western States have non gender discrimination laws, so that is not what this is about.  It is also true that many have various forms of affirmative action, so that is probably not what it is about.  Probably what it is about would be garden variety Marxism.  The Gender Studies courses indoctrinated them with all sorts of Marxist silliness, told as absolute truth.  When they hit the real world, probably some see how it works, and how Marxism does not work if you actually want to get things done.  Furthermore, they maybe like the fancy title and fine salary; under Marxism all are equally miserable.  That is, unless you are part of the elite, but how many of them can guarantee that they would part of that.  Better to rail against the system, but not so much to actually bring it down.  One can have their cake and eat it too.  Which seems to be what all Feminists want, isn’t it?

    I would have to wonder about any employer who would hire a feminist with a gender studies degree. Who wants a potential and likely lawsuit? After that, what contribution could they make to the enterprise?

    From RPG’s Sergei did say,

    But equality is the opposite of merit. You have to destroy later to achieve former. Otherwise those with merit will pull up the ladder, and equality will fade within a generation.

    We had that back in USSR. The only employer was the state, it guaranteed employment for every citizen, and taking a job was mandatory. Those who didn’t hold a job, or were not in education were called ‘drones’/’parasites’, and were prosecuted as criminals – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parasitism_(social_offense)#Soviet_Union .

    State provided cribs/nurseries from age 0 and up, and expected all women to be employed.

    Salaries were about the same for all kinds of jobs, personal productivity hardly mattered. Given that the state considered itself to be a heaven for worksmen, blue collars often made more money than engineers/professionals, creating a culture of anti-intellectualism.

    This led to disastrous drop in productivity. When your compensation does not depend on your quality of work – why put any effort? We had two generations of people who wasted most of their lives on imitating work on workplaces they hated.

    Black market was a thing, but was always a big risk: any form of buying-to-resell was called ‘speculations’, considered to be a criminal offence (2 to 8 years in prison), and in some cases led to death penalty ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rokotov%E2%80%93Faibishenko_case#Retrials_and_executions ). There were no such thing as “self-employed”, and the state held the monopoly on all means of production (including all the land), so it was impossible anyway.

    All in all, this indeed created a very egalitarian society. There were hardly any privilege, except for maybe belonging to nomenclatura, a top level state’s machine; or the highest level of academia; or foreign corpus; or very-top military. Even there, the level of privilege was laughable comparing to what top 1% had in different countries.

    USSR was probably the closest thing to equality of outcomes. It was also the Hell on Earth for every person, who was cursed with any talent. All this eventually led to a state-level default.

    I’d expect something similar to happen with Europe and USA, except with “basic income” instead of guaranteed employment. Race for egalitarianism (creating The Big State in the progress) followed by a massive crash (hopefully without civil wars).

    These people are just humorless a**holes. What I can expect to happen is that an equal number of staffers will be asked to leave from the affected countries.

  9. It’s so amazing that they can’t see themselves becoming the exact arguement against themselves!

    Trump didnt win because of hacking, he won because he worked the trenches harder. The guy was everywhere! All the time. On it. Ahead of it even. He showed the people, literally, he would work for them and for America. End of. He would have won even wo those emails. They just confirmed what we already suspected… America was getting sold out. By both parties. Trump is almost like a whole third party, they still don’t know what to make of it but if they don’t get it they’ll be left at the station wo a ride. American elected representatives who aren’t representing their people are out. Game up. Those who don’t get that… So long! Line your pockets elsewhere folks! We ain’t buying.

  10. And on topic… Gender studies. Oh vay, I had to take it to graduate and that nutty teacher opened my eyes to what feminism had become vs what I understood it to be. She full on taught all men were rapists and abusers, all women were oppressed. Disagreeing meant not graduating. So not OK. I went along to get along but she singlehanded my served up the first red pill, I am sure unintended. But I realized then if that’s what feminism really is, male bashing and perpetual victim hood, count me out!

    In a weird way, I thank her for showing me the extremism women’s right had become…

    I’m a little bit shocked regarding the gender studies indoctrination that RPG got. The most I saw here of that nonsense was a discussion on gender issues where at the end, only 3 out of 20 students voted that it was better that women do the housekeeping (the only guy in class, the only muslim in class and myself). The teacher was a short haired feminist but appreciated my enthusiastic contributions to the debate and reccommended me for an honors program.

    In a previous serious worldwide tiff, it became common to describe our army of brave men lead by clueless posh orifices as ‘lions lead by donkeys’.

    I think that the Glorious Forces of Fembotia might be described as ‘idealistic gullible sheep lead by rabid hateful swamp donkeys’.
