Bully


It is common when females become involved with computers that they accuse the males of some type of bullying.  First off, it sets them up as the victim; and we all know the value in claiming the victimhood high ground.

But what really happens?  What are the paths there?  Let us consider some possibilities.

Let us start with the fellas.  Normally the nerdy types welcome female company.  Often they don’t get so much; they have hormones just like everybody else.  From this perspective, they would have very little reason to do anything that might be considered to be bullying.

Probably sometimes a female jumps in and demands to be treated as an equal.  Many of the fellas involved are really into the tech; spending countless hours becoming proficient.  Being fellas, they naturally respect other group members based on competency.  That is, real competency, not purported.  Females, not as interested or driven as the guys, often fail in this regard.  It is a male driven world, a competency driven world: welcome to it.  In the end, many females do not measure up, and are treated similar to fellas who don’t measure up.  Guys, don’t complain about this treatment, but girls do.  So we have bullying.

Undoubtedly other times, females jump in and don’t even pretend to be competent.  They just want to ride the affirmative action escalator / impose SJW values / just be a general nuisance.  Very often they can get away with it.  One wonders who is bullying who.  Very often, these fellas just want to be left alone to do their thing, but they aren’t.

So, back to the beginning: these fellas would in general welcome female company.  Typically, they have lots of other things to do other than bullying women.  Yet is supposedly happens.  This is all very strange.

    God made women to be natural helpers to men, but bad women aren’t content with that role. When they find that they don’t get to call the shots, they may equate the natural hierarchy with bullying and victimization.

    Wayne’s rule is, if women want to help, that’s great! But if women don’t respect the hierarchy (and the men), then they’re out.

    After I was divorced, the children’s mom married a guy who refused to let the children keep their kitties.

    This is not a defense of Elizabeth Warren’s politics or style of relating to people. It is a defense of logic.

    Elizabeth Warren’s previous employers have said they did not use her “minority status” in deciding whether to hire her. Warren has stated that she did not know, and was surprised, when she discovered that Harvard had listed her as a person of color. There is also a listing on the internet of all of the other documents that she has released recently in an effort to get her information out there well before any decision to run for President in 2020 takes place. What sense does it make to think that anyone’s DNA test results would have any effect at all on the mid-term elections coming up?

    My family story is that I am a mixture of English, Scots-Irish, and some German. I only know that because I was told that by adults I trusted when I was a kid. Who knows what “truth” a DNA test would reveal about my ancestry. Warren came by her beliefs about her ancestry in the same way that we all do. There has never been any way for any of us to test what our grownups taught us about family when we were small. That is true for me, for you, and for Warren.

    She was taught that she had some native american ancesty. So that is what she claimed when asked about her ancestry. The same that any of us would do. I will be very surprised if she includes anything about native american ancestry in her response going forward. Because she now has something other than the “truth” told to her by her grown-up relatives to inform her response.

The kinda-results were based on DNA that was made up of non-native americans (“To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamante used samples from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia to stand in for Native Americans.”), but from people of other countries that share similar DNA patterns.

    I’d be surprised as well…not because she knows the truth but due to the reception she got. She honestly seemed to feel exonerated by finding out she’s 1/560th something other than white. If she’d felt otherwise, she wouldn’t have made the DNA evidence public in the first place (while demanding Trump pay up).

    From Liz’ link:

    Warren’s statement is her first acknowledgment that she identified herself as Native American to the Ivy League schools. While she has said she identified herself as a minority in a legal directory, she has carefully avoided any suggestion during the last month that she took further actions to promote her purported heritage.

    The article goes on to quote folks who hired her that they did not know of her reference to being part native american when they hired her. Liz said that if she had black in her background, she would not self-identify as black. But Liz, the link you posted seems to support the fact that she did not self-identify as native american – which would be the equivalent to your point. Me saying I have some German in my heritage is not the same as me telling everyone that I am German.

    Again, not defending the politics and behavior of Warren. Just the logic of it all. I see folks here and elsewhere accusing her as self-identifying as native american. But I don’t find evidence of that. I suppose folks could be lying (suprise, right), but they claim she didn’t do that in her professional arena. As more information / new information comes out, that logic could change.

    The new “NPC” meme mocks leftists by depicting them as unthinking and reflexive automatons. The meme has upset the left so much that Twitter is now banning people posting it for “dehumanizing speech,” but its humble origins are the computer-controlled characters of limited intelligence found in most video games.

    NPCs have no agency; NPCs don’t think for themselves; NPCs don’t perceive, process, or understand; NPCs arrive at the same worldview not because it’s authentic to their experiences, but automatically. As a descriptor, it suggests that those to whom it applies aren’t even human, but are rather, functionally, robots, or clusters of computer code.

    SJWs and generic unaffiliated shitlibs have two thermal exhaust ports: they are most vulnerable to mockery which targets their fears of being conformist suckups and of being unoriginal, predictable bores.

    The NPC meme — a humanoid graphic which substitutes a blank ASCII face for expressiveness, to which is attached standard neolib boilerplate — is the sort of soulkilling reminder that the SJW hordes don’t think for themselves and lean on digestible anti-White pabulum to help them feel unique. It’s a clever repurposing of the autism slur to apply to social media consumed leftoids who mouth late night talk show shibboleths thinking it makes them renegades.

    I expect that any contributer to that cookbook had to be identified as to which of the Five Tribes families the recipes came from (since knowing which recipies came from which Tribe was the point of the book).. So, Elizabeth Warren’s receipe is from the Cherokee branch of the Five Tribes. Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee, not Aztec.

    But all of that is beside the point of of what I said, which was: … they claim she didn’t do that in her professional arena. I was addressing whether the folks who hired her did so based on her selling herself as native american. Those folks say she didn’t – based on what I’ve read. What was meant by an identifier in a family-created cookbook has nothing to say about her professional carreer advancement, which was my topic.

    “There was this study that came out at the end of last week,” Knowles said. “It showed that 80% of Americans oppose political correctness. They think that it’s a danger to the country. 80%! This is an all-time high. In the 1990s, the number was 53% opposed PC and then it rose even as late as 2016. Polls put it about 73%. Now it’s up to 80% consider political correctness a serious problem in the country.”

    He continued, “Why is that? I think the answer is transgenderism.”

    “It’s quite another thing to follow a guy’s daughter into the changing room at the swimming pool, because you say that men can be women and women can be men,”

    RP: “Liz said that if she had black in her background, she would not self-identify as black. But Liz, the link you posted seems to support the fact that she did not self-identify as native american – which would be the equivalent to your point.”

    My statement (answer to “The same that any of us would do.”) was:
    “No. I assure you if I had a black great great great grandma I would not self identify as black and post a recipe for chitlins in an Afro Americana cookbook.”

    I am about 1/8th Jew. That’s pretty Jewy. I would never classify myself as a minority. It would be the same for any other ethnicity. It did actually come as a surprise that I had some Jew in me but I suppose it shouldn’t’ have. I’m super cheap, have a tattoo and a large nose. Just kidding about the last.
    This subject has been beaten to death and it bores me. I find the other Liz monopolizing on her family legends for advantage as a minority in any capacity absurd in the extreme. Even more absurd was her first reaction to the DNA test (ah HAH! take dat! .01 percent! Bah!)
    I really have nothing more to say on the subject.

    If she had any semblance of social intelligence at all she would’ve had one of these reactions to the DNA test:
    1) Oops…guess I won’t be sharing this one. Dang, really thought I was native american.
    or
    2) Humor. Admit defeat, tell everyone her family legend lead her to believe she was part Injun (though she shouldn’t use that word) and she was proud of her heritage, wished she had more…and then some witty anecdote if she’s got one. That would’ve come off as comparatively endearing.

    @Liz said: I find the other Liz monopolizing on her family legends for advantage as a minority in any capacity absurd in the extreme.

    That gets to the heart of my point, the reason I responded to this issue at all. There is significant conversation on the internet, and here, that she traded on her family legends for advantage. Nobody in her professional life has provided proof that Warren gained any advantage, or tried to gain advantage, based on what she was told by her family about her heritage. Rather, they have denied that she was hired or voted into office because native american. They claim she was hired / voted for because of her skill sets. The same as Kavanaugh.

    What did Kavanaugh’s foolishness in his personal life have to do with his professional qualifications to be a Supreme Court Justice? This part of the internet responds nothing. What did/does Warren’s foolishness in her personal life have to do with her professional qualifications to be a college professor, agency head, or senator? This part of the internet seems to be responding a lot

    The mind boggles that folks don’t seem to see the contradiction in that.

    (Again, I’m not defending Warren’s politics or behavior. I’m defending the consistent application of logic.)

    I think the point of Kavanaugh is the average person can relate to being accused of a crime they did not commit…and/or they can easily see this happening to someone they know.
    The average person can say, “wait a minute…that’s absence of due process. That would suck!” and it’s something they would have no control over.
    By contrast, the average (white) person doesn’t monopolize on possibly being 0.1 percent minority. They don’t list themselves as having minority status in law directories and are not listed as minorities in their places of employment. They don’t place recipes in cookbooks and it’s something they have complete control over.

    People just don’t believe academic types with respect to hiring/admissions because they have a poor track record with the truth. For example, when the people in the state of Michigan passed a referendum stating that admissions to universities were to to be race neutral, the universities schemed blatantly to get around it, all the while denying that they were doing so.

    I know/familiar with someone who was accused of participation in a violent crime, while they were still a teenager.

    It was obviously BS from the start, but they had to get a lawyer and basically prove that they were innocent. The cop had made a lot of stuff up about the kid, and the only thing that was true, was that the kid lived on the same street as the perp, albeit about a mile away.

    The kid went through a lot of stress, until things got sorted and their name was cleared. Not something that anyone should have to go through, and I am sure never forgotten.

    The cop ended up off the job, and from what I was told recently, hasn’t had steady work over the last 40 years. Small price to pay for trying to ruin someone’s life, over a lie.

    Watching the Kavanaugh hearings was painful, because I know that the Ds couldn’t care less about how much pain and trauma a false and NON-CREDIBLE accusation can cause.

    Maybe i am missing something, but it seems that the application of logic is pretty consistent.

    The allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh are not really credible. The part about his drinking and liking beer, is admitted by him.

    Warren says she didn’t claim to be native american, and maybe she didn’t. But how would any of the schools know about her ancestry, unless someone told them.

    What it comes down to, is whether they are being honest about the statements each of them make.

    Same kind of statement as FML directly above: The only people they are impressed with, are themselves.

    Not a shred of proof anywhere – but memes that are easy to toss around.

    Elizabeth Warren was not hired by the Universities because she was a native american. Elizabeth Warren was not voted into office because she is a native american. Of the entire population that has graduated from Harvard, there may be a miniscule group who are only impressed with themselves. The rest have a much broader horizon than that (at least true of the ones from Harvard that I’ve known and others I’ve read of).

    Those statements neither defend Elizabeth Warren nor specific Harvard graduates. They simply state the truth in the face of all of the easy memes – that have no relationship to the truth – that are being thrown around. I’m defending the truth involved, not the people involved. There is a difference.

    Wife and I are friends with a doctor couple. He is European. She is Asian. Husband graduated from Harvard. Their son just graduated high school and wanted to apply to Harvard. Through her network of Asian friends, they learned of the story that is coming out in the lawsuit against Harvard. Asian wife was explaining this to my wife by way of saying they discouraged their son from applying to Harvard, and directed him toward UC at Berkeley instead. A week or so later I saw the first articles appearing about the lawsuit against Harvard.
