Last year, I went to the shop to get my car's wheels aligned; I also had my tires rotated, since it was time for that too. While I was there, I read the then new issue of Inc. magazine. Inc. is SUPPOSED to be about business, but it seemed to feature lots of feminist style, 'grrl power' cheerleading. You can view the article, '30 Under 30', here for the online edition of what I read in print earlier this morning.
I have to wonder who did their math though, because there are 49 featured entrepreneurs in total-far greater than the number 30! When I was in school, 49>30; as far as I know, it still is; 49 is certainly far past 30 on the number line. Anyway, if you scroll through the pics of these business people, you'll note that 36 of the 49 are men, or approximately 73% of the total. Even when the entrepreneur is a woman, you'll more often than not notice that a man is in the venture with her, e.g. the private jet concern; only a few of the business owners are women doing it alone.
While at the shop, I read the hard copy (i.e. print) edition of this article., which was about the most dynamic, young entrepreneurs in America today; it featured 30 of the most successful, under 30 entrepreneurs. When you looked at all of them (including the sidebars on the article's pages), the majority of them were male; that is to say the most of the successful, young businessmen in America today are MALE. That shouldn't surprise anyone, since we men are hard wired for competition, risk, and need of money to attract the best possible women, courtesy of female hypergamy. The more successful you are, the higher quality woman you can get. You think Donald Trump would have bagged Melania Knauss if he were an average guy?! Come on! Ergo, men are hard wired to go get the most bacon they can, so they can bring it home to the hottest chick they can find.
However, when you looked at the article layout; when you looked at who was most PROMINENTLY displayed, it was all women-all women! If you didn't look at all the entrepreneurs along the pages' sidebars (and many readers won't; they'll just look at the photos and accompanying bios for the women), you'd have thought all the go-getters are women, and that the men of America are just a bunch of lazy slackers. Here are beautiful, successful women just tearing it up, while men are a bunch of lazy bums. Is this a business magazine, or is it another, feminazi, male bashing propaganda rag?
It seems as if this feminist claptrap, agitprop, and propaganda is everywhere; there's no getting away from it. Even in endeavors which have nothing to do with feminism, feminism and girl power is somehow made part of the mix. For example, look at the aforementioned article, which has the women prominently displayed. What purpose does that serve, other than to glorify women and bash men? Does anyone care to tell me? If I were reading Inc., it's because I have a business, and I want to know what I can do to make it more successful; I don't want or need to read a bunch of feminist cheer leading-sheesh! That doesn't help me RUN my business any better! And the old media (newspapers and magazines would be old media) wonder why they're HAEMORRHAGING a ton of red ink?! Come on! It's because they're trying to disguise propaganda as news and useful information, rather than just giving us what we purchased the magazine for in the first place-news and useful information. If we can't get useful information from a magazine purporting to give us that, then we'll procure that information elsewhere-end of story.
I'm out of here. In closing, this feminist clap trap, girl power BS is everywhere; there's no getting away from it. Even if you follow guy sports like racing (and I do), this BS is some how worked into the equation. If you read a business magazine, the articles are more about feminist, girl power cheer leading than they are about what they PURPORT to be-about business. If I were to purchase a business magazine, it's because I want to learn about-gasp-business! It's not to have more of this glorified, Hanna Rosin, 'end of men' crap shoved down my throat! THAT is why I seldom buy magazines anymore. Not only do I get feminist clap trap and agitprop shoved down my throat; I PAY good money to have it done! Come to think of it, I'll just go online, or talk to a successful businessMAN myself if I need this sort of information in the future. It'll be cheaper, not to mention more edifying and more useful. Thank you, and good day...
