A Conversation

LSE (larval stage engineer): Exactly what kind of job can you get with a degree in feminism?

Chris: Socialist Indoctrinator

LSE: You’d think the market demand for socialist indoctrinator would be rather small…

Chris: Sadly, no.

I am a cynically romantic optimistic pessimist. I am neither liberal, nor conservative. I am a (somewhat disgruntled) muscular minarchist… something like a constructive anarchist.

Basically what that means, is that I believe, all things being equal, responsible adults should be able to do whatever the hell they want to do, so long as nobody’s getting hurt, who isn’t paying extra

    Equality for all except for women.

    VRB, if there were true equality, I could have gotten a degree in Meninism. If you hear of a university offering that kind of program, would you let me know?

    Trumpet Bob,

    I see you don’t get it.

  • trumpetbob15

    I don’t get it. I will gladly admit that I don’t understand how women think that if they just discriminate against men, it will make everything right. Maybe I should blame my mom for telling me when I was a kid that “two wrongs don’t make a right” but that might be sexist, eh?

    This conversation shows that this person who actually serve a purpose can’t figure what a feminism degree would contribute to society. I guess you can rightly put me in that boat too.

    Trumphetbob15,
    What you have described isn’t feminism? I have never heard of a feminism degree.

    Your argument is trite and so familiar on two levels. I often wonder how does one discriminate against privilege. When a woman gets that job and you don’t, how do you know someone else wouldn’t get your job. Be that person a minority, would that also so be discrimination; or would it even occur to you that you have failed to get that job on your own merit? You know as a black person and a female, I have had to ask that question for over forty years. If I complain, I am accused of playing the race card or a raving “feminist”, so what would I call you, a “macho sexist”?

    VRB,

    You’ve never heard of a feminism degree. Yet you spout off with a victicrat statement like “Equality for all except for women” even though you yourself have admitted that you don’t know what a feminism degree is worth.

    Let me put it this way. Let’s say I’m a hiring manager, and I’m looking for someone to do a Public Relations job (chosen as an example because my wife has a journalism degree with PR emphasis). If a man comes to me with a cultural studies degree, a woman comes to me with a communications degree, and another woman comes to me with a feminism degree, guess which one I hire? I’ll give you a hint. Two of the three have worthless degrees that have nothing to do with PR.

    A degree in feminism proves that you can sit through four years of college classes. It doesn’t show that you have any marketable skills.
