    Gender Offenders
    by Steve Sailer
    November 22, 2017

    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?
    For example, PBS star Charlie Rose was taken down on Monday for decades of unmitigated horndoggery around his bevy of lovely young lady producers, known in the business as Charlie’s Angels.

    Also on Monday The New York Times’ anti-Trump White House correspondent Glenn Thrush was suspended.

    And by the time you read this, there will likely be others.

    Now, it’s almost certain that some largely innocent men will be swept up in the mounting hysteria. After all, the definition of sexual harassment as “unwanted sexual advances” is a logical morass. As I pointed out in 1992 when forecasting that the incoming Clinton administration would be rocked by a sexual-harassment scandal:

    On the other hand, most of the guys who have taken a fall so far, such as movie moguls Harvey Weinstein and Brett Ratner, have been notorious jerks.

    After all, the fellows shamed so far are largely not random Republicans, as they were supposed to be. Instead, they are primarily Democratic Party made men. For example, Ratner, who got his start in showbiz procuring white girls for rap mogul Russell Simmons, hosted a 2007 fund-raiser attended by Hillary at his infamous Hilhaven swinging bachelor pad.

    Granted, one reason the media have ended up exposing themselves is because their stories tend to be more interesting. In contrast, there is currently a sizable sex-abuse scandal going on at the leftist Service Employees International Union, which represents janitors and hotel maids.

    You might not have heard about it yet, in part because the SEIU is a stalwart of the Democratic Party and its plan to rig American elections by importing millions of foreign ringers. For years, SEIU’s largely Jewish leadership has been selling out the economic interests of its largely Hispanic members by demanding more immigration to create more Democratic voters.

    But another reason that the SEIU scandal story isn’t as sexy as the media scandals is that janitors, maids, and union staffers are unglamorous and kind of depressing. Who wants to read about them?

    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? It’s simple supply and demand.

    Conversely, just as women got the vote way back in 1870 in the frontier states of Wyoming and Utah because cowboys wanted to encourage schoolmarms to migrate, women tend to be treated rather well by lonely male employees in industries where they are rare.

    For example, secretaries at midcentury Lockheed Aircraft, such as my mother and her friends, tended to do quite well for themselves in acquiring husbands. After my mother was widowed when her Marine first husband was killed in combat on Iwo Jima in early 1945, she found my engineer father. They were married from 1946 until her death in 1998.

    My father wasn’t a genius engineer. His career was spent figuring out how to keep the more brilliant designers’ envelope-pushing airplanes, such as the F-104, from crashing. And he was socially awkward. But he was a good man.

    My mother’s best friend married another engineer, Henry Combs. They were married from 1948 until her death in 2013. Ben Rich called Henry a “genius” in his superb memoir Skunk Works about Lockheed’s legendary R&D wing that Rich led. Combs became the technical director of the Skunk Works and, according to Rich, was the chief designer of the 2,000-mph SR-71, the most awesome airplane ever built.

    The founder of the Skunk Works, Kelly Johnson, America’s most famous aeronautical engineer, married a girl in the Lockheed accounting department in 1937. When she was dying in 1969, she explained to Kelly that he was too busy to take care of himself, so she had arranged for him to marry his secretary, which he did. When his second wife was dying, she in turn found a third wife for him.


    But that was Kelly Johnson in the bad old days in a conservative industry. In contrast, in progressive media industries in feminist 2017, alpha males like Weinstein and Rose treat women more like Ismail the Bloodthirsty did.

    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:

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




    Of course, there is little effective solidarity among women in the media business. As a female CNN producer noted:

    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.

    Poor Charlie - shown the door before he could promise Shitlib Nation to take it all out on the head of President Donald J Trump.

    Spanking the Monkey

    Clusterfuck Nation
    James Kunstler

    The hysteria manufacturing business formerly known as the news media is enjoying multiple orgasms this morning in the outing of notoriously vulgar comedian Louis CK for exactly the sort of vulgar behavior offstage that he riffed about onstage. What a surprise. We also learn today that Jeremy Piven, beloved and admired for his role as a bimbo-berating Hollywood agent in the HBO comedy Entourage, is alleged to have groped a starlet in his trailer. Or was he just doggedly staying in character between set-ups? And what was she doing there, anyway? Stopping by to share the everything bagel with jalapeño cream cheese that she picked up at craft services?

    I suppose these guys will be joining Kevin Spacey in his new dinner theater in Tampa, since they’ll never work in Hollywood again, and surely they have bills to pay, especially to their lawyers. Hollywood itself, being the vulgar place it has always been, must be nervously awaiting the inevitable next phase of this melodrama: when various actresses, and other women around the biz, are revealed to be sluts who screwed and blew their way to stardom — not to put too fine a point on it. Surely a few ladies out there have misbehaved in the way that ladies can, trading favors for fame and fortune — or do you suppose that never happens? Or only when men force them to? (Anyway, don’t count on hearing about that in The New York Times.)

    Then the whole prurient cavalcade of cross-allegation and litigation will be as forgotten as a mass slaughter in Las Vegas, or Texas, or Lower Manhattan, and it will be back to business-as-usual in the news racket: nattering about contacts with Russia, a faraway land that, we’re told, is determined to corrupt the morals of our shining city on a hill.

    The metamorphosis of the news business from a dignified and necessary component of the public interest to a gong and geek show is now complete. Some of you may remember that it used to be the task of news organizations to actually gather the news from far and wide. When Walter Cronkite came over the airways on CBS news, he “anchored” the revolving team of reporters in the field: we go to Marvin Kalb in Moscow… Fred Graham in Atlanta… Peter Kalischer in Paris… Lesley Stahl in New York…. Do you know what those people were doing? They were reporting the news on site, because it was important to actually be in the places where events were happening and talking to the people involved in them. And, by the way, do you think Marvin Kalb made contact with Russians? Or perhaps reported on other fellow Americans in contact with Russians? (And that was back in the Cold War, when Russia was run by the wicked Boris and Natasha).

    Turn on Anderson Cooper on CNN these days and what do you get: “And now lets turn to our panel for analysis.” Our panel? Analysis? A gang of moonlighting kibitzers with an opinion about what might have actually happened in the world that day, which none of them have been busy actually reporting on. The transformation on the cable networks especially has been insidious. Not so distantly as the days of the Iraq War, CNN checked in every night with Christiane Amanpour, the last of the great foreign correspondents, roving about the Middle East. Do these so-called news organizations even employ any reporters anymore?

    I don’t think so. Perhaps the most important story of the decade is the developing meltdown of governance and authority in Saudi Arabia and a Defcon Red level of potential for major war breaking out between them and Iran. How many reporters do the cable networks have in Riyadh today? What’s on CNN’s home page this morning? Boy dies after eating grilled cheese; Why men use masturbation to harass women; and the lead under their “Top Stories” banner: ‘Magnum, P.I.’ actor John Hillerman dies. Maybe you can find a clue in here why the USA has become a reality-optional society. Maybe it’s the American news media that actually has its dick in its hand.

    I like Kunstler. Yeah, I know he's a libshit. He is one of the very few libshit's with a functioning brain and he does come around to reality on various issues eventually. I've seen him do it on his blog. I think he's an actual well-meaning, basically good guy. No doubt these last few years his politics have migrated farther to the right than he ever imagined they would. And he knows how to craft a sentence, that is for sure.

    Charlie Rose? There was a creepy element to him that I couldn't quite get to the bottom of. Now we know. lol.

    I agree in this case with the filthy kike Kunstler. This "analysis" garbage started 10 or 15 years ago, before that the jews were content with just telling us their lies. Then they began to insist on adding lying kike analyses as well.

    Sailor's column is good. Aunty Semite is now also directly naming the jew at http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/2017-11-22.html#read_more
