Avoid Women at all Costs

Filed under: General — triassic @ 10:14 pm Wed 9th January 2019

This article illustrates the inevitable outcome of the empathetic nonsense that the #metoo was based on. With more women gaining political power comes the danger of policies based on empathy rather than compassionate reasoning. A 1995 study in the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology showed that women involuntarily imitate other peoples’ emotional expressions more than men. This may give them a proclivity to act in ways that are not conducive to the betterment of society. Paul Bloom’s book, Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion, sets out a good case against viewing empathy as a virtue. Empathy and compassion are not synonymous and it’s very important to understand the difference. Listen here for his discussion with #56 Sam Harris – Abusing Dolores. And here #14 — The Virtues of Cold Blood. on this subject.

    I don’t go with the idea of women being empathetic creatures – Men in the original meaning of the word I believe are empathetic.

    Women are sympathetic creatures and relate on that basis to each other.

    Women can be sympathetic to men or equally can hang out the broken wing expecting a sympathetic response.

    What I see in this is the rewriting of history into another Feminist gospel about how good women are.

    A woman who starts believing this stuff is probably best avoided.

    For me , knowing Women who are just ‘marvellous’ on ‘face time’, yet who are utterly not ‘marvellous’ in real life demonstrates this well. Whether it is being empathetic or sympathetic or just pathetic it is a far cry from being compassionate, compassion is surely one of Humans’ most enlightened and important traits.

    TITLE IS LIKE A WARNING LABEL

    but instead of a warning against women

    it seems more like a warning

    against the sanity of the good posters
    on this site.

    feels like propaganda for blindness
    discrimination and sexism

    avoid women (mothers, sisters, daughters?)

    feels like reverse feminism.

    I SAY SEEK A GOOD WOMAN
    BE THE BEST MAN YOU CAN BE
    BE FRUITFUL AND PROSPER
    AND LET A GOOD WOMAN RAISE YOUR OFFSPRINGS

    THIS IS A WAR MEN WILL NEVER WIN
    FOR AS LONG AS THEY ARE
    WILLING TO SLEEP WITH THE ENEMY

    #3 Not sure I understand your response to the post? Did you read or listen to the links?

    The reverberations of the ME too thing will hang around a long time, the effects on business are massive, wow nothing like a woman scorned. How can Men trust Women now,,it is so damned scarey to know the blokes in your life are wide open to misinterpretation,, to say the least, talk about population control.

    from an article…http://www.curmudgeongroup.co/imagineland-blog/quantifyingamovement

    “Workplace harassment first and foremost comes at a steep cost to those who suffer it, as they experience mental, physical, and economic harm,” the EEOC report stated. “Beyond that, workplace harassment affects all workers, and its true cost includes decreased productivity, increased turnover, and reputational harm.”

    These broader costs take various forms. Companies are purchasing “employment practices liability insurance” to cover costs associated with employment lawsuits, according to David Yamada, Professor of Law and the Director of the New Workplace Institute at Suffolk University. For a media company with 20,000 employees, a pre-#MeToo deductible fell around $2.5 million. Now that number has doubled to $5 million, liability expert Tom Hams told Forbes.

    According to Risk Management Prof. Michael McCloskey at Temple University, many insurers took an even harder stance in the wake of the Weinstein scandal, rejecting requests from studio production companies for updated employment practices liability insurance policies. Some insurers are choosing to provide training materials, demanding (and checking) that companies institute anti-harassment policies and procedures – a costly budget add-on.

    #4 – HAVE READ BUT TITLE IS IDIOTIC
    and makes me want to retch.

  7. Downunder says:

    #6 Whether the title is offensive to anyone is beside the point. It doesn’t have to be the author’s point of view.

    What the title should do is connect the content to the internet by being relevant to both.

    In this case that is more than adequately achieved.

  8. JustCurious says:

    #6 for sensationalism perhaps..or negative attention seeking…is there any value in the post?

    According to you

    “What the title should do is connect the content to the internet by being relevant to both”

    isn’t it “what the content should do is sum up the substance of the post?”
    And should the post not be focused on expanding on the title?

    “A 1995 study in the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology showed that women involuntarily imitate other peoples’ emotional expressions more than men. This may give them a proclivity to act in ways that are not conducive to the betterment of society.”

    “With more women gaining political power comes the danger of policies based on empathy rather than compassionate reasoning.”

    So teeh gist is about making policies effectively based on empathy rather than compassionate reasoning.

    So in reality and wih all things concerned “Avoid women at all costs” just does not make sense at all

    not in this context anyways … unless we are dramatizing for drama sake…

    #8…I think #4 has got it right. For the life of me I cannot understand your argument at all. My title is from the Sydney morning Herald displayed in the first link which may have explained things for you had you read it! My article then went on about empathy which is what the #metoo movement was deeply driven by. Are you offended by the outcome of this movement on the workplace or that I have displayed it on this site? It would appear to me that you’re acting out of empathy for the movement and therefore I do wonder if in fact you are a supporting female?

    From the above posts’ Sam Harris’ website on Rushkoffs’ work.

    Nice to know we are not alone.

    Team Human delivers a call to arms. If we are to resist and survive these destructive forces, we must recognize that being human is a team sport. In Rushkoff’s own words: “Being social may be the whole point.” Harnessing wide-ranging research on human evolution, biology, and psychology, Rushkoff shows that when we work together we realize greater happiness, productivity, and peace. If we can find the others who understand this fundamental truth and reassert our humanity―together―we can make the world a better place to be human.

    Weren’t there previous posts from an identity called blame-for-all?

    That’s acceptable … expressing the opinion under the banner men are to blame for all wrong but watch the haters dump when you turn that around to endless forgiveness for women.

  12. Evan Myers says:

    The world average fertility rate is 2.5 and dropping – that’s a good indication men are avoiding women or Western women are avoiding children.
