Brassy, Sassy Lassies


RPG writes,

A colleague and I were talking yesterday, and among other things she was going on and on with pride about how all her friends say they love how she’s so bold, and sassy, and speaks her mind.

After she finally finished, I simply replied, “Yeah, but guys don’t like it.”

The look of shock on her face was priceless, and the idea that her behavior was working against her with men was obviously something she had never considered.

Finally, she stuttered something about how no guy had ever said anything like that. A brave man in the midst offered, “Why would they when they could just withdraw?”

Let us explore why men withdraw.  There are many angles.

First, we should get this notion out of the way, “Men are afraid of bossy/sassy/moxie types of women”.  They really are not much afraid of then; as they don’t really like them.  In my case, I don’t like broccoli.  I am not afraid of it; I just avoid it.  Same with such women.

Commenter Alan Kardec stated,

Sassy is most likely a Sh*t Test aimed at everyone, men and women alike … but I’ve rarely seen it aimed only at men, it seems to be used as a way of maintaining a momentum of advantage in groups of women too. It’s a way of getting inside your OODA loop and disrupting it.

Yes, there is probably much truth there; it is a compensation mechanism.  It maybe works with the gals, but it is a turn-off for the fella (at least long term).  After all, who want to be shit-tested all of the time.  But wait, there is more,  Alan Kardec further states,

I suspect that Bold and Sassy is a defense. It uses the fact that few will fight back when it’s coming from a woman and it works like a force field. Sooner or later many get carried away with the power of being able to dish it out without having to take it.

So we have a brassy shit testing woman, who no matter what the guy does to counter the shit testing, will go on shit testing; because that is what she does.  A fella can not win.  Best to withdraw.

In small doses, brassy women might be fun.  Or perhaps better stated as exciting.  Maybe in a superficial way.  The behavior might attract some fellas in a public setting such as a bar  where some resulting fun may be had.  Perhaps because of this, women might believe that they have hit on a winning strategy.  In short, it isn’t.  At least not for the long term.  Guys instinctively know that in the long run (with its many serious settings) such behavior will cause trouble.  Most know enough to stay away.

Perhaps such a woman has other redeeming qualities that fella likes.  He might be wondering if she could be a long term bet.  He considers if he could change her into something less brassy.  Then he comes to his sense, and realizes that it is all probably a foolish proposition.  She is that way because of some combination of nature and its “working for her”.  It would be a poor bet to hope to change her.  The natural response: withdraw.

In fact, there really is no reason for a man not to withdraw; unless he desires a small dose of it for excitement.  After which he withdraws.

In short, for the gals, it is a losing strategy.

    ‘Sassy and brassy’ is just code for vulgar, loud and rude. Usually in a superficial, unthinking way. The woman in that condition is signalling to her girls how strong and unbowed she is.

    I like loud, vulgar and rude — in certain situations — usually involving alcohol. But it has to be one where I can get loud and rude myself. Like a strip joint, or a late-stage tailgate, or maybe the after party after a wedding.

    I don’t really think ‘sassy and brassy’ though is much of a shit-test, because they’re usually just lists of talking points, and some slightly or very overweight chick is seeing how many she can remember.

    Anyway, I don’t like to be around rude people when I’m sober, and I suspect most adults, much less the men, feel the same way.

    It may have been you who brought up the Rough Riders earlier today. I just got through watching this movie. It runs over three hours but only cost nineteen million dollars US to produce in 1997. It might be worth a review and, as it is on YouTube, it is free to watch in the comfort of your home. Gary Busey’s performance as Joe Wheeler is outstanding. Great movies cam be made for reasonable expense. The bottleneck is having a compelling, well written story.

    It must be getting hard to define “woman” for sports. Confusing this is. Easy to define “bear” it is.

    The article did not state it, but I will presume the hand grenades being tossed are from immigrants. It sounds like their Customs Dept. is not very thorough. If most of them are being thrown at police, it sounds like they want a war. A change of government may oblige them.

    In the years before the Revolution, a lot of towns were at risk of losing their charter because they would not support a tavern. Taverns were much more than places that dispensed alcohol by the drink. They were social centers. People could drop off and collect their mail. Still the city forcing the owners to contract to operate a gay bar is new. It will stand up because the condition is set before the establishment of the new bar. I am out of the loop on this, but I thought that gay bars couldn’t help but make money?

    The author claims that Google’s diversity efforts are coming up short because the company misdiagnoses the problems that lead to a gender gap in tech. Discrimination may be part of it, but it is also true that men and women differ, on average, in ways that might affect their representation in the field (and indeed in different departments within Google). To wit: Men are more likely than women to find it rewarding to work with things rather than people; men are more aggressive and status-seeking than women and thus more likely to climb the corporate ladder and ask for raises; women rate higher on other psychological traits such as anxiety. These differences are all well-documented and will not shock anyone familiar with the research on them. And while there’s some debate about the extent to which these gaps are cultural instead of biological, there’s good evidence that biology does play a role at least some of the time. As the memo’s author writes, gaps like these are found across cultures, and for some of them we’ve identified specific biological underpinnings such as testosterone.

But I am not so sure, she took sabbatical after nearly having a nervous breakdown from the stress of the workplace, I wonder how many alpha, top dog, exec. guys do so?

He complained to me that “it is like having one less engineer,” my response was “no, it’s like you traded an engineer for a commissar.”

    I am sure that this is great for productivity

    When the Nazis invaded Russia, who were the first to be executed?
    Nobody likes commissars.

    According to others, he should beaten

    I can’t imagine why he felt that “Google has several biases and honest discussion about these biases is being silenced by the dominant ideology.”

    It’s not “hate” to believe that it’s dangerous to transition toddlers to the opposite sex by injecting them with synthetic hormones that will sterilize them. It’s what more than half of the country believes. Refusing to bow down to the transgendered idol of the day is not something that needs to be fixed or silenced. It’s the normal reaction to living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is celebrated. We aren’t going to bow down. Get used to it.

    James Damore, whose manifesto criticizing the politically correct corporate culture at Google prompted outrage from left-wing employees and social justice warriors online, revealed that he had been fired in an email to Breitbart Tech on Monday evening.

    In his email to Breitbart Tech, Damore claimed, “They just fired me for ‘perpetuating gender stereotypes.’”

    What you’re seeing is the rise of the ethics hipster – a term coined by King Buzzo of the Melvins. An ethics hipster is a tool who pretends to salute the idea of free expression, but will happily try to censor you if your expression runs counter to their rigid, narrow and wholly predictable assumptions about life. The old prudes are the new crusaders.

    Do you think for a moment, if they had actual power, that they wouldn’t try to censor you completely? Of course they would! Give them time. In their ideal world of free expression, the only expression that is free, that is celebrated – and protected – is their own zealotry. And because they constantly redefine what is unacceptable, and have no issue with punishment for violators – they’re badly-dressed fascists.

    Responding to the memo, Joshua McKenty, a VP for Cloudfoundry and Pivotal suggested the creation of a blacklist for “known misogynists and racists.”

    A proud Antifa-supporter and vocal trans activist in tech, Emily Gorcenski, described the memo as a form of “violence” and “harassment.” In a series of tweets, one of which was deleted, Gorcenski called for harm to be done to its author.

    “The author of the Google essay on issues related to diversity gets nearly all of the science and its implications exactly right,” declared Rutgers University Professor Lee Jussim. “Its main points are that: 1. Neither the left nor the right gets diversity completely right; 2. The social science evidence on implicit and explicit bias has been wildly oversold and is far weaker than most people seem to realize; 3. Google has, perhaps unintentionally, created an authoritarian atmosphere that has stifled discussion of these issues by stigmatizing anyone who disagrees as a bigot and instituted authoritarian policies of reverse discrimination; 4. The policies and atmosphere systematically ignore biological, cognitive, educational, and social science research on the nature and sources of individual and group differences.”

    There is one good thing to be said for this. The SJWs will come to the fore, be identified, and Google can keep an eye on them. If they are as useless as I suspect, Google can fire them with cause. If the company doesn’t take this road, it may be a good candidate for short selling.

  93. By firing James Google shows they SIDE with the SJWs. This will entrench them in google.

    And the good engineers, male by their own stats, will see this and say “I can make the same money anywhere, why put up with this, Bye?”

    Google may have just signed their development death warrent. Unintended consequences, aint they grand.
