That’s Different How?

If women were just fundamentally smarter and harder working than men, would you support putting rules in place to ensure that men would share equally in the best jobs and fill half the slots at the best schools? If so, how would you explain the fairness of this to a smart, dedicated woman displaced by a less-qualified man?

And this is different than how life actually works? AJs not a femenist or activist or anything like that, but how is this any different to how reality works. Men are always put on that one step up higher even if the woman is more qualified. They work harder to get where they are going because of it.

It’s all about privilege.

There should be no rules for that – the better person gets the job, isn’t that what you want? Regardless of race, gender or creed? I know I want the most qualified doctor working on me. Or the best architect building my house. I want the smartest computer programmer writing my financial program. I don’t give a flying fuck if they are male or female, or non-binary. I don’t care if they are black or white or even a fucking vampire. Give me the product I want from the best possible people.

  1. “If women were just fundamentally smarter and harder working than men…” Something about this phrase bothers me. I keep reading it over and over and wondering, “Wait. What are they implying? Am I just being over sensitive? Or are they trying to make this sound like a far-fetched scenario — the very idea that a woman could be fundamentally smarter and harder working than a man?” I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me?

    “There should be no rules for that – the better person gets the job, isn’t that what you want? Regardless of race, gender or creed?” Exactly!
