A few days ago I came across a video that summarizes how well a team of women did compared to a team of men when given the task of surviving on a tropical island. You can watch it below. I will list some of the biggest weaknesses of the women, and follow-up by comparing this to my experiences with female managers. First, enjoy the video:
Some of the key parts of this video are that the women:
- Struggle to establish a chain of command
- Struggle to set up a division of labor
- Rather sun-bathe than doing any useful work
- Get lost in the jungle
- Turn animals that could be eaten into pets
- Abandon said pets on a whim
- Eat rotten meat
- Throw away tools that would be useful for survival
- Are convinced that they are “winning”
I found this video rather interesting to watch and, of course, I never laughed at any of the misfortunes that befell any of these women. While the standard defense is that those women are only a sample of the population, or that this was “just a TV show”, I think that people who have had a female manager may have a rather sober view of the leadership potential of women.
I had few female managers, and also a small number of supposed peers of the fair sex. Yet, I cannot say that I encountered a lot of competence in this group. Allegedly, before wokeism had taken over the world, there were competent women in the workplace, often rather masculine looking ones. In fact, once I was interviewed by a female engineer in her late 40s, in the final non-managerial and non-HR interview, no less. She looked like a butch lesbian and was possibly on the autism spectrum. I had no reason to doubt her competency, but this is not the kind of woman you normally encounter in the modern workplace (yes, I got offered that job).
A bad female manager is essentially like a bitchy high-school chick, except older, likely no longer fuckable, and oftentimes nastier. It is worse when those women are unattractive because they often want to unleash their pent-up frustration from their decades on this planet without even having gotten railed by Chad on whoever comes their way. They rarely are technically competent. This is quite prevalent among today’s tech companies, but maybe this is becoming a little less so given the current wave of layoffs. In contrast, no incompetent man gets hired in order to “increase diversity”. Perhaps you should even pity female managers, but given their pay, this would be somewhat misguided.
One of the main aspects of the job of a manager is to set direction for their team. Of course, to do so effectively, you need to have domain knowledge and you also need to have a clear idea what your team needs to build and how it can get there. Now, imagine someone being told to run a team or a department who has not clue what they are doing. What inevitably happens is that they settle into some kind of reactive style of management where they look for immediate fixes, while completely ignoring any negative long-term consequences. This is partly due to them not even understanding those. Well, probably this reminds you a lot of how our feminized political class acts.
I was once told by a female manager to stop work on a months-long project because it “was taking too long”. She had no idea of the complexity of the work, and she also did not understand that the status quo was no longer sustainable. In short, this woman was a complete fucking idiot. Yet, she thought that I was wasting my time on this and that I could achieve a lot more by working on a string of smaller (yet insignificant) projects. There are several moves you can make. If you are cynical, you just agree, do the minimum amount of work to not get fired, and keep drawing a paycheck, but in the long run, this is just not very satisfying.
Ad-hoc decision making is another big issue with incompetent female managers. Yes, of course, I could say the same about incompetent male managers, but for some reason these all get washed out before doing too much damage. I simply never had a male manager who was even remotely as incompetent as any of the female managers I have had. (The best one of them was completely indifferent to what anyone did and spent her days on social media.) A manager making ad-hoc decisions on what you should work on is highly disruptive. Imagine you work on project A, only to get told to pick up project B instead — and the ditz may try to start some drama the week after, demanding to know why you are ignoring her orders and stopped working on project A!
To deal with horrible female managers, I began using email. If I got a dumb request, I just sent an email to her after a meeting to confirm that I would now do X, Y, Z, as we had just discussed. You could not believe how annoyed this cunt was when I referred to email chains that completely contradicted what she said in a team meeting. Of course, butting heads with your manager is not a good idea, but at some point you are just too fed up. Well, as I wrote in another article a while ago, women can help you advance in your career, albeit unintentionally, so even such levels of incompetence can be seen as a positive. In any case, be it on a tropical island or in the workplace, you probably do not want to be subjected to the leadership of a woman. Death or bankruptcy await you.
