Deti’s End Of Year Thoughts


This is what happens when you put men and women together in a workplace.

Men chase attractive women. Women chase attractive men.

Some woman somewhere doesn’t like it when an unattractive man tries to act like an attractive man. Some woman somewhere doesn’t like it when a man uses his power and influence to get a woman (women) into bed, and then that woman doesn’t get something she wants (a relationship, a job promotion) or feels something she doesn’t want to feel (guilt, remorse, slutty, used).

Men change and adapt to the situations they find themselves in. Women demand that the situations they find themselves in change and adapt to fit the women in them.

Part of changing and adapting the men are doing are:

1) excluding women, refusing to hire women

2) GTOW/refusing to date women

3) Refusing to interact with women in the workplace

4) Refusing to work with women

5) surreptitious recording of interactions with women

The funny thing is that some of the fixes proposed in that article are clear violations of employment antidiscrimination laws – treating men and women fundamentally differently solely on the basis of sex. And so I think more and more businesses will respond by refusing to hire women and by hiring less qualified men over more qualified women. And the even funnier thing is that that hiring practice IN ITSELF is a violation of US antidiscrimination laws. I am waiting for the day when a company gets sued for employment discrimination and uses as its defense

“We don’t hire women because we don’t want the expense or risk of spurious sex harassment/sex misconduct claims. One claim, even if true, could put us out of business. We want to stay in business. Men don’t make sex harassment claims. Women do – and we’ve investigated them, and found most of them to be so trivial as to be ridiculous, even more of them are a result of thin skinned hypersensitive women, or out and out false. And it costs us a shitton of money and expense and lost productivity. And we’re sick of it. Sure, some women aren’t a problem. But some are, and we don’t know who will be until they’re here. Hiring and employing women is more trouble, effort, time and expense than it’s worth.

I know, I know. The response is “then hire men who don’t harass women; and fire men who do, and you’ll be fine.” Well, no it isn’t fine. Because businesses have done that. And men have changed. But as usual with women, it isn’t enough. It’s NEVER enough. They always want more, demand more, expect more. They always push and push and demand that people, workplaces, churches, EVERYTHING, change to suit THEM.

Not only that, what the fuck do people expect to happen when you put men and women together, and some of those men are attractive? Well, shit. Women chase that attractive man. And that attractive man can do whatever the fuck he wants – he can violate sex harassment policies to his heart’s fucking content, and fuck his way through all the women in the office. And women HAVE NO GODDAMN problem with that WHATSOEVER. It’s when some middling to unattractive man meekly asks out some woman at work, and she calls HR on him and he gets his ass fired.

It is all about women getting everything they want, and men getting squeezed harder and harder and harder until they get NOTHING they NEED.

I know, I know. “You’re just pissed off because you’re not attractive! Suck it, asshole!” Well, if we’re going to have a society based on “attractive men get everything; unattractive men get nothing”, then Game is what you get. You get more and more unmarried women vying for the fewer attractive men. You get more and more divorces. You get more societal instability. You get more sluts and cads. You get an increasingly alienated, deprived, pissed off male majority living in lack, poverty and sexual deserts. You get more and more “entitled”, bitchy, masculine women.

You get extreme radical fundamentalism. You get hookers and brothels. You get moral decay and depravity. You get societal breakdown where people don’t trust each other at all, where individuals have no stake in society, and where society gives a majority of its individuals nothing and no rights. You get a society in which an increasing number of men see no reason to defend that society. You get civil unrest. You get civil war.

……………………..

Why do most people here post anonymously? Because at bottom, we don’t trust each other. But more, we don’t trust those we don’t know – lurkers who read here. If we posted under our real names, within the hour the things I’ve said here would be in front of my bosses and I would very likely be fired. The things we talk about here are unpopular, and in today’s #metoo environment, would certainly “make someone uncomfortable”. That would be enough to summarily dismiss me from my employment and make me unemployable, and I’d probably be hauled in front of the state lawyers’ disciplinary board and brought up on disciplinary charges. I’d probably lose my law license or at least get a reprimand, which would be a permanent blemish on my license and likely make me unemployable.

The society we live in becomes less and less free by the day, folks. We are not free.

……………………..

I’m still waiting for the time when one of these women calls my current employer to accuse me of harassment and demand that I be fired:

–that girl back in college I had a ONS with and didn’t call back

–that girl back in high school I went out with and kissed without asking her first

–that girlfriend back in college I had a huge blowout fight with and we called each other all kinds of nasty names during a shouting match

–that girl back in college i had sex with when we were both really drunk

……………………..

Bottom line, boys and girls — it’s now illegal to be an unattractive man in 21st century America. If you are an unattractive man, you can make a living; but it is illegal for you to be the “man” part. It is illegal for unattractive men to act on their sexual drives. It is illegal for unattractive men to act like men. It is illegal for unattractive men to ask women out, to ask for dates, to show overt sexual interest in women.

It is illegal for unattractive men to be “men” in 21st century America. If an unattractive man attempts to act like a man, he will lose his job, be sued for damages, and possibly brought up on criminal charges.

That’s where we are at the end of 2017, folks.

…………………….

And when you make it illegal for men to be men, you radicalize those men. You divest them of any stake in the society they live in. You give them no reason to ally themselves with you. You give them no reason to defend the society they live in; and every reason to attack it and destabilize it from within. You make them into your enemies.

Why would anyone expect any man to give anything to a society when that society makes clear it will give him nothing and in fact will attack him and take from him what little he does have?

    What we are seeing now is the reason why female sexuality should be regulated. It makes it more equitable for more men to have the shot at marriage and have stake in society. When the sexuality is unregulated only a few men get the women and the rest either have no purpose or turn to destructive tendencies.

    Yoda,
    I can’t remember which video she spoke of it in, but Karen Straughan has said that feminism ‘s promise to women is better men. Women have always had access to reproductive opportunity and they took it for granted. Hypergamy this acute brings this into question. For the first time in history, women will have to consider that they created a situation that led a lot of them to involuntary celibacy. When the realization of this hits them, they are going to be screaming.

    Most want to hunker down inside where its warm and easy.

    Now think of all the people who are out working in this.

    Really!!
    Pause and make a list of the people who are out right now and tomorrow because
    SOMEONE HAS TO!!

    And hundreds of thousands are now retiring each year.

    Now as Deti says
    “Why would anyone expect any man to give anything to a society when that society makes clear it will give him nothing and in fact will attack him and take from him what little he does have?”

    Those people out in the cold working DON’T HAVE TO BE!!

  17. Best over reach of 2017.

    From the be careful what you wish for files.

    California is leading the charge to outlaw non disclosure agreements.
    http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/world/non-disclosure-agreements-sexual-harassment-weinstein-1.4462694

    They are the legal contracts where the victim of abuse is paid a sum to quietly go away.
    If they break the confidentiality they owe the money back plus some.

    They are also used to get rid of an employee “with different work styles” who have not done anything for cause. I.e. a new firm president comes in and a week later the CFO is replaced because of politics, yup non disclosure payout.

    By banning these it will have HUGE ripples thru both labour, business and criminal law.

    Basically it reduces recourse in ANY situation to either

    1. Lay criminal charges
    2. Take allowed employment action PROVING cause
    3. Carry on the employment WITHOUT sanction of either party if you cant do 1 or 2.

    In the case of real harassment, employeediscipline etc ….wonderful…day in court and if the actions are proven…done.

    Anything else……. NADA.
    Oh they harassed you…call the cops or shut up….no payday for you.

    You did harass therm….no hiding…no hush money…Officer…

    But all the gray where you just want to part ways…….never again.

    A legislation to address a narrow problem will be huge. Especially in organized labour.
    Ive done hundreds of arbitrations. 2% go to judgement, the rest are settled in minutes of settlement. Non disclosure in exchange for something is boilerplate because you never settled who was wrong.

    Think of it. Every single union grievance must go to arbitration and settlement itherwise it becomes past practice and jurisprudence.

    Ahahahahaha.

    From the article…the diehard feminist admits

    “Despite that, we paid premium salaries to bring a few women who did well in our interviews. But, they lacked the energy to put us into overdrive. Worse, they were starting to drain the energy from the rest of the team. Eventually, we had to do the right thing for the company and let them go. ”

    The women who had the like to go into stem, who could hack the program to acquire the skills……did not have the drive!! I.e. the desire to stay up to solve the problem!!

    Now reverse the roles….men hired to run the PR and find the perfect picture and tagline for thier twitter account….same thing!!! They can do it but they dont lime it enough to “put us into overdrive”

    Concur with Deti, except that I dissent from his comments suggesting that the dilemma is restricted to “unattractive” men.

    A man, today, is deemed “attractive” if a woman gets what she wants out of him. So she may grant total license to this week’s Tom Brady. But if Tom doesn’t give her what she wants (LTR, chocolates, New Year’s in St. Bart’s, sperm) he will immediately, and spectacularly, become “unattractive.” And then Tom Brady becomes the target, too.

    Most everyone in the manosphere appears to think the current situation celebrates and benefits alpha cads. However, by their nature, the hawt dewdbros are not going to be giving their HB7 infatuated woman friends what they want. I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of a scorned average-looking chick with a 101 IQ who is now staring at spinsterhood or marrying Bob from accounting. She’s walking around with a .44 Magnum in the form of the anonymous sexual harassment hotline.

    Up here in the arctic, we just do pigs and turkeys. And laying chickens (eggs). The challenge with confinement livestock is the risk of catastrophic disease, and in these verticals, getting the fulltime help required. (I wouldn’t want to be shipping pigs tomorrow, and no one else does, either: High Temp: -15F.) Curious how you manage the disease aspect, not knowing anything about confinement chicken ops.

    The noobs on the police here asked me last summer why I answered the front door with a holstered pistol on my person. This was the conversation that ended with some fat asshole with three stripes telling me that if I asked him one more question he was taking me in. It was 0030 at the time of their visit, of course I was fucking armed. The SWATTing phenomenon just exposes local SWATs for the amateurs that they are.

    SWAT guys know what they are doing( by and large). The main problems are……

    #1 they believe the hype about how dangerous being a cop is. Last I checked it wasn’t even in the top 10 most dangerous jobs in America

    #2 is all cops are big government liberals who think the government use of force is always legit.

    #3 militarization of law enforcement

    Combine the 3 and you get all these lethal responses because their training and rules of engagement giving them more rights to shot drunk ass Harry Homeowner then we had to zero out hajjis because they all think they are seconds from death at every moment.

    It’s fucking insane

    ………

    Trying to explain this for the non famers…. verticals is basically the critter supply chain. I am a contract grower, doing broiler houses for one of the biggest poultry firms around. Basically where the chicks grow up to slaughter weight. Some guys do eggs, some guys hatch them and raise them a few days before sending them to me and some dudes breed the breeders who drop the eggs and what not

    I am in the least technical end of things. For us out here climate control is the most important part. I have certain things I need to look for( my part time help actually) when we pull the dead ones out of houses. If I see those things I call a 1-800-oh-shit number and they send help.

    I get new chicks every 14 weeks. 12 weeks to fatten them up, 2 weeks to clean out the houses and repair whatever is jacked up. Most days a retarded monkey can do this shit, and if things go well I will be diverted of everything I have but the plant and the chicken shit by June.

    So to BV… chickens are easier then turkey, it’s mostly controlled via cleaning the houses and climate control and I have technical back up 24-7 via the partnered slaughter houses. By far the best way to make money I know of. If you have an eye for detail and can stay on top of the small stuff….. Which is basically what e7’s do for years on end

    The “Beta” is not the only man at risk of being accused. Hot men can make women furious by declining or ignoring them. An average woman thinks she’s a hot man’s equal in attractiveness. If she wants to make him pay for turning her down, accusing him of sexual abuse is an easy way to do it.

Signs are floating around Twitter and Instagram showing gender nonspecific people looking dour with demands for the rest of us to use awkward pronouns like “they” and “them” for a single person. If I was the sort of person to entertain such an asinine request, the grammar freak in me simply could not do it under any circumstances.

  53. Agree with ton

    Most farming is not overly smart just common sense and knowing what to look for.
    And its as honest as honest work gets.

    We run 150 acres of hay plus another 100 in pasture plus the training areas. Covers about 30 to 35 horses. Haying is easy for most of the summer followed by three weeks of hard work bringing it in.

    Daily its just a matter of moving horses between their paddocks or pastures, graining, watering. Check them for injury, check their coats, switch blankets, mucking out.

    Taking care of thirty in four paddocks incuding mucking out is about five hours this time of year. Summer maybe 4. Rest of it is maintenance, fixing fences, etc. Frozen water lines common.

    Similair is the dairy operation I help with.

    Three herds of 100 ish each. One inseminated, one recovering, one waiting. Morning routine is 4 am to 9 to milk all 300 odd. 20 lires each on average. Then offloading to the truck and sterilizing every other day. Then feeding and maintenance. Insemination is a two weeks every three months or so.Then milk again 5 to 9 pm. Checking for injury, pregnancy or disease is about an hour a day. Calving is the only real bitchy part.

    Farming is knowing a thousand tricks of the trade for the type you do and hard work and the tenacity to get up Every Fucking Day 365. And putting faith in things outside your control like weather.

    Was a ramp manager for Fedex. You’d be amazed what gets moved. We didnt do livestock much but loomis and others did. Chicks, reptiles are common. Horse when drugged and a vet on board.

    Semen for insemination were priority. I’d get a list each morning of bottles coming thru in dry ice for customs so I could expedite it. Some farms save for years for one shot to increase their herds. Horse, cow semen can be 10k plus a shot. The dry ice is only good for 48 hours so a customs hold could kill a farm.

    Worst was the time we moved two elephants in a 747. Three handlers and a vet.
    Know what we used to keep em calm?

    Baby chicks.
    Turned a couple dozen loose at their feet. The elephants didnt want to injure the chicks so they stayed still.

Dancers bf just gifted me w a chicken cone today, in fact. :/ (one puts the chickens in head down, blood rushes to their head, they apparently go to sleep or pass out, then a peaceful dispatching w a cut to the jugular finishes the job. It all sounds good but… We’ll see!) I have 12 birds now, realistically need to keep it at five or less. We just don’t eat that many eggs and I am too busy otherwise to mess w selling them. At the moment they are breaking most of them anyway so… Time to downsize. :/

    “Some Crafty Kiwis Made An Actual Island Out Of Sand To Avoid A NYE Booze Ban.”

    Occupying the “island” as the tide came in, the Kiwi New Year’s Eve revelers told onlookers “they were safe from the booze ban because they resided in ‘international waters’…

    Inspector John Kelly, a local police official, told Stuff that law enforcement didn’t know about Booze Island, but if they did they wouldn’t have given a shit. ‘That’s creative thinking,’ Kelly told the publication. ‘If I had known that I probably would have joined them.'”

    Farming. We were no strangers to work. Up until the age of 8 we were “dogs bodies” fetching things for adults, helping men with round-ups, crutching, lambing, calving, fencing, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, building etc. At shearing time we were dog’s bodies in the woolsheds. Being with the men we learned and gradually worked with less supervision. By the age of 8 we were expected to handle tasks without supervision. Going out to move stock and manage them on the mountains in all weather from heat waves to blizzards. Excellent animal husbandry = profit. Less than excellent = loss.

    There’s no co-operation from nature. Man does all the co-operating while nature goes its own way e.g. any global warming or cooling is Nature, not Man. I learned that man fits in with nature or fails. Feminists, LGBT, with their multiple sexes etc are fools to think they can beat nature. They will fail, and if we allow them to lead us against nature we will all fail.

Lots of opportunity for folks who want to work the land to step in as that next generation. As always, developers try to get farms to convert into subdivisions and cheap tract housing. Once the current old time farming generation is gone, their kids will likely just sell. Too few want to choose hard work and long term over quick easy money. So people keeping that land on agriculture before that happens is key! I hope those folks see that in you Ton. Good luck!

    Where I live farmers are also aging, as Horseman describes. However, consolidation is the game, and if a man dies some of his neighbors will be importuning his widow, to purchase or rent, before the funeral has even happened. Ground goes for $10-$12K at the moment.

    Because of the cost, it’s harder for a child to take over the operation. Farmers are scrupulous about treating all of their children equally. So if there are three children, but only one wants to take over, the other two have to be paid out (using bank debt) at the same time the other one borrows to take over the operation (current year operating loan). Or perhaps they’ll do an intra-family contract, but the financial effect is the same. Current commodity prices make that dodgy. So the patrimony of land and homestead is losing out to a rush for consolidation.

    I have one friend who is inheriting 2000 acres, after working for his father and uncle for $20/hour for 20 years, and living in a $50,000 house. I have another friend with three children, and two of them want nothing to do with the farm (1500 acres). I think he’ll farm until he’s 80, and then it will be sold off.

    As Ton noted elsewhere, it’s all about scale and eliminating labor inputs these days, but consumers of food should pay attention to how the food they’re consuming is produced and assembled.

    Within two years its a house on two acres of manacured lawns and 45 acres of fields gone wild.

    Orchards maybe but crops need planting, weeding, turning, harvesting each being weeks of 12 hour days. Stock of any kind is DAILY care. And the worse the weather the more you have to chesck. Cold freezes water, wind takes down fences, heat brings disease and pests.

    I love this life. Coming in yesterday from the cold on a bank holiday reminded me how nice a snug cottsge is. Summer fireflies and a beer in the quiet is the best. But its not for the naive.

    Thats the difference, why people fail at it. Not intent, not weakness, naiveness.
