Gender Offenders

Gender Offenders, by Steve Sailer.

The Media Meltdown of 2017 in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein disclosures is, to say the least, ironic. Why has the feminism-promoting media industry turned out to be the worst offender in abusing young women? …

As I pointed out in 1992 when forecasting that the incoming Clinton administration would be rocked by a sexual-harassment scandal:

What self-respecting woman would admit that no man had ever made an unwanted sexual advance toward her? She’d be admitting either that no man’s ever made her a sexual advance or that she’s never met a sexual advance she didn’t like. …

The fellows shamed so far are largely not random Republicans, as they were supposed to be. Instead, they are primarily Democratic Party made men.

Years of hypocrisy are exposed:

For years the press has been telling us that industries that hire mostly men — such as computer programming, defense, and the military — must be bad for women. No doubt, it is explained, all those horrible, evil male engineers must be teaming up to exploit the handful of female employees. After all, men and women are enemy genders. I mean, that’s what every lesbian women’s-studies professor says, and they wouldn’t have any incentive to lie, would they?

Therefore, women must be given much more in the way of affirmative-action quotas in technology companies. Similarly, the Obama administration went to war against the armed services over the purported “epidemic of rape in the military” that turned out to be only slightly more real than Haven Monahan’s fraternity-house gang rape on broken glass.

Instead, however, we see that careers where women are most abundant and most ambitious, such as television and movies, are where they are most exploited.

Why is sexual abuse so rampant in the media but not in engineering? Simple:

The female sex has shown that their emotional responses have not yet evolved to deal well with modern visual media. Women tend to be too impressed by the men on screen and too hell-bent to get themselves on screen.

In one of Philip Roth’s lesser novels, The Dying Animal, the narrator is a 62-year-old college professor who seduces one of his undergraduate students every semester and then discards her for a new one the following semester. How does the old dog do it? He moonlights on the local PBS channel as an arts expert for a few minutes per week. This might not seem like much fame, but for a 19-year-old coed, Roth’s narrator explains, “They are helplessly drawn to celebrity, however inconsiderable mine may be.”

Likewise, in the real world, an anonymous TV anchorman explained in 2004:

At the producing level, it’s all young women, 99 percent of whom have no chance of being on TV. They like being in TV and they like powerful men. Each host has around him lots of good-looking, unmarried women. Women are excited by power, let’s be totally clear.

Likewise, lots of women want to be on screen themselves. A female producer at CNN complained thirteen years ago:

In the last 10 years or so, it seems there are more and more young, pretty women who are just dying to be on television…. It’s just about being on television, and they’ll do anything to get there — among those things, being treated poorly.

Conclusion:

There’s probably not a lot we can do about this, except to not pay so much heed to people on screen who lecture us about their superior morality.

The left is now even tentatively admitting Bill Clinton is a sexual abuser and Hillary Clinton a lying enabler, and that they should not have been defended all those years. Finally! That’s 25+ years of lies about to be reversed. Perestroika!
