Much in the same way that those who try socialism end up suffering because of it, women are now reportedly suffering in Wall Street due to the threatening effects of the #MeToo movement. What do I mean by that?
Well, according to Bloomberg, men all across Wall Street are “adopting controversial strategies for the #MeToo era and, in the process, making life even harder for women.”
“No more dinners with female colleagues. Don’t sit next to them on flights. Book hotel rooms on different floors. Avoid one-on-one meetings.” That was literally the opening paragraph of the Bloomberg article.
“In fact, as a wealth adviser put it, just hiring a woman these days is ‘an unknown risk’. What if she took something he said the wrong way?”
So because of the #MeToo movement, men in the financial industry are trying to protect themselves from unfound sexual harassment lawsuits that could destroy them. Of course, Bloomberg doesn’t mention that, instead choosing to basically attack the men for now becoming more discriminatory.
Now, I’m not saying this is a good response to the #MeToo movement. Doing this sort of thing can be detrimental to women in the work-place as well. But you can’t exactly blame these guys for fearing a sexual harassment or assault claim.
I know I’ve already talked plenty about Kavanaugh, most recently with outgoing Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill admitting Democrats’ handling of Kavanaugh might have hurt her in her election efforts, but he is a prime example of what the #MeToo movement could POTENTIALLY cause for men.
Now, this is something that must be pointed out: the Kavanaugh accusation was strictly political. You may believe the “survivors” in this case, but it’s plainly obvious that the biggest reason he was targeted is because of his political leanings, not because of anything devious he had done.
However, what I want to point out is the fierceness of the media in attacking Kavanaugh with these allegations, and more importantly, the substantial LACK of evidence that was brought about that still led to the fierceness of the media.
Like I said in the previous article discussing Kavanaugh, the media was essentially calling him an outright serial rapist. For weeks, the accusations were all anyone, including yours truly, was talking about in length. Story after story of Kavanaugh assaulting, harassing or flat out raping girls would come out. On the day of his hearing, he gave a very emotional, but appropriate response to the entire mess… and the media attacked him for that too, saying he was a lunatic.
The guy had essentially been a boy scout his entire life. Never really doing anything bad, or at least too bad. Always trying to do the right thing. Always keeping his hands clean. And upon being selected to the highest court in the land, a privilege only a select few will ever receive in their lives, he is attacked and barraged with accusations that went uncorroborated either by any evidence or witnesses.
Kavanaugh, thankfully, overcame that and was closely selected to become a Supreme Court judge. But not every man that is similarly attacked will be so lucky.
Sure, the media largely won’t go after the Regular Joe anywhere as fiercely as they did with Kavanaugh. Maybe not even at all. But the whole Kavanaugh debacle with the media highlighted the kind of world we are heading towards: Kavanaugh’s character was being destroyed by accusers who did not or could not bring forth any substantial evidence to their claims.
If ZERO evidence is all any woman needs to destroy a man’s career (and let’s not forget Blasey Ford heavily benefited because of this with a GoFundMe page that gave her over $600,000), then no man is safe in the work-place.
Now, again, the Kavanaugh smear was strictly political. But what reason does a woman have not to lay forth uncorroborated claims against a male colleague if she can benefit from it? Companies will surrender settlements for people not to sue, so in an age when evidence is pretty much unnecessary and “we must believe all women”, why would any woman not lay forth such claims?
It doesn’t even have to be all-out rape or even sexual assault. A simple sexual harassment claim will do because such a claim comes down to what is “interpreted” by the woman as harassment. Men are afraid of flirting with women due to how the woman might take that flirting and somehow claim it as harassment. I mean, in France, it’s a finable offense to wolf-whistle (kind of like in old-timey cartoons where a man will whistle at a woman’s attractiveness). That is being equated to harassment.
So when it’s so insanely easy to screw a guy over, men will look to protect themselves from this sort of thing by avoiding female interaction in the work-place. It may not be the best response, but it’s not something you can blame them for.
The #MeToo movement is basically trying to do away with due process. The phrase “believe all women” essentially symbolizes that desire. What if the woman is lying? “What, and let the guy get away with allegedly raping the girl that is lying? Never!”
It doesn’t help matters when women have the mindset of female over male, in the guise of equality. Allow me to explain. Back in November of last year, Teen Vogue columnist Emily Lindin shared the following: “Sorry. If some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.”
If women like her believe that it’s okay to sacrifice innocent men just to further the Leftist agenda, that will lead men to take actions similar to the ones described by Bloomberg. That mindset is not about equality in the least. It’s not about undoing oppression, it’s about women BECOMING oppressors.
It’s for this reason that I find anyone who says “the future is female” to be a disgusting human being. They might think it’s a good thing, but it’s just as sexist as saying “the future is male”. That’s not undoing “oppression” (I argue there is no such oppression, but for the sake of the argument, let’s say there is). It’s changing who gets to be oppressors and who is made to be oppressed.
Such people do not strive for equality; they strive for supremacy and domination.
Such people are the ones who are more than okay with destroying an innocent man’s career, reputation and life for the sake of the feminist agenda. It doesn’t help women, it hurts them, as we can plainly see.
In that same Bloomberg article, Lisa Kaufman, CEO of LaSalle Securities, said that men have to step up and “not let fear be a barrier,” in response to men acting this way as a result of #MeToo.
Again, can you really blame these guys for this? They’re just trying to protect themselves from an unnecessary risk. Is it the right response? I don’t think so, because it also causes women to suffer. But you have to understand that women in the #MeToo movement have to also step up and not insist that we “must believe all women”, because sometimes, women lie. Just as men lie, so do women.
And if a woman can benefit from destroying a man, what reason apart from her own conscience would she have to not do it? Again, companies are suckers for these sorts of things. They will give out settlements like Tic-Tacs to women who could simply claim harassment in an effort to avoid a lawsuit.
This is particularly the case for “woke” companies like Google, who will literally fire an employee for simply recognizing the basic DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN.
Equality is, as it turns out, a two-way street. Making false claims for profit, or even to advance some sort of agenda, is not being equal. It’s just being an ass. Men should not sexually assault, harass and/or rape women. Men should not segregate themselves from women in the work-place. But women should also not take advantage of other people’s actual assault stories in order to further themselves or some sort of agenda. Women should not use “believe all women” to accuse a guy of something that he didn’t do.
“For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities – all things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”
