Disgruntled males

What we have here are disgruntled males who can't handle working with women, and certainly not having us as your bosses. We'll get used to it. 

This is all payback for the "good old boys" over the past several decades. It's now our turn to determine the next few decades, and not run it into the ground like you boys.

If you don't like it, leave so we can replace you with some talented women.

I assume this is nothing but "flame-bait." Not even a woman could be so closed-minded. Society-wide, boys and men are the ones who are disadvantaged and are the ones who face overwhelming discrimination.

- Men are the victims in the vast majority of violent crime, including 75% of homicides. Yet we spend 5 billion on a "Violence Against Women Act."

- Men represent 93% of workplace fatalities.

- The longevity of men is 6 years less than women. Yet at the federal level, there are 5 offices of women's health compared to 0 offices of men's health.

- Men receive sub-standard health care and are 20% more likely to be without health insurance.

- The death rates for prostate and breast cancer are about the same, yet breast cancer research receives 5 times more government funding.

- Men/boys are 4 times more likely than women/girls to commit suicide.

- Boys are more likely to be illiterate and represent 65% of high school dropouts.

- Boys are 35% less likely than girls to attend college. There are 72 colleges exclusively for women. There are 2 colleges exclusively for men. All-men colleges are bad. All-women colleges are good.

- Men are the only ones required to register for the draft, and are the only ones who can be forced into combat. 10 years to the week that the Supreme Court ruled that a men-only draft is constitutional, they ruled that men-only military schools such as VMI and the Citadel are unconstitutional.

- 55,000 American men were killed in combat during the Vietnam War (half drafted effectively as slaves). 8 women were killed. All deaths are recorded at the Vietnam War memorial, but there is a special memorial just for women to recognize the "special" contribution women made.

- Men are over 2 times more likely than women to be homeless.

- Men are 80% more likely than women to be incarcerated when committing similar crimes. Men perpetrators of homicide are 10 times more likely to receive the death penalty and 100 times more likely to be executed than women perpetrators of homicide.

- Female genital mutilation is illegal. Male genital mutilation is common in the form of circumcision.

- A 12-year-old boy is raped by his baby sitter (baby sitter found guilty in court). The baby sitter becomes pregnant. Another court rules that the boy - or his parents - must pay child support to the woman. Boy gets raped. Rapist gets child support. But if women don't get free birth control it means there's a war against women. That's how equality is defined today.

- There are hundreds of scientific studies showing that men are as likely as women to be victims of domestic violence yet men are ignored (e.g., http://www.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm).

The list goes on without even touching on the lack of equality men receive in family law. Men and boys are the ones being shortchanged at all levels of society.

And no, women are not paid 0.75 cents on the dollar for equal work. When occupation and work hours are considered (men work more than women), they are paid the same.

There has never been a group of individuals as privileged as American women, and in particular white American women.

The female-centric view is prevalent at the Laboratory. For example (as mentioned in a previous thread), Newsline is more likely by a 50-to-1 if not 100-to-1 ratio to report on women-specific issues than men-specific issues. Several years ago the Laboratory sponsored a "Women's Health Initiative." Ironically, they announced this new initiative during Men's Health Awareness week (bonus points to anyone who has awareness that there even is such a national week.) The Laboratory focuses on women, when in fact it is men who are about 10 times more likely to receive merit-based recognition such as patents and R&D 100 awards.

Looks like you went for the bait and now submit your own trolling.

The stats simply say that men are 60% more f'd up socially and mentally than women are. Who didn't know that??

Men from 18-30 fight the wars and create the innovation to keep us rich.

Yes, the age old debate of helmet vs. trunk.

I have never had a female supervisor, yet.

However if this helps my favorite part of Jail (tv reality show) is when the female deputies get angry and deal with prisoners at a County Jail. Very merciless....love it.

Only thing better is when some gangsta is running and the police dog catches him and he cries for mommy.

Does this help?

Hey jan 14, 12:35 - great post! I wish I could buy you a cigar.

Also, glad to see POS is still around. Keep up the good work!

We had (and have) some female managers at low and high levels in GS. The high level female manager was either a sociopath or psychopath in my opinion based on her viciousness to those around her. I mean stuff you would not believe. That was a nightmare. The managers continue to let this behavior go on, which tells you something about the male managers. They got some new lower level female managers and at least some were pretty green and need a lot of help. Not doing a good job but it is early and for the sake of diversity I am willing to wait and give them a chance to learn the ropes. But time is ticking and by now we should start seeing some improvement. Instead starting to see one blaming her own failures on those below her anyway she can. And people are quiting. Oh well, not a failure based on gender, just these individuals. We may need other women to fill these positions and build up some diversity with some better quality managers. While the original post was probably a troll, the point that the lab is so screwed up rests on the shoulders of male managers is quite valid. Nearly all the problems complained about on this blog resulted from bad male managers.

The difference is bad male managers past and present have been named and described. Not a peep regarding female managers, except for Monya Lane.
But her record doesn't matter because she was the first female AD of Engineering, which is the most important thing according to January 15, 2015 at 9:38 PM

According to the Newsline, Randy Pico was the "creme de la creme" applicant when he was awarded a 2 year all expenses paid LLNL scholarship to earn a bachelor's degree in "Technical Management" from DeVry in Fremont,CA. To my knowledge, he is the first employee promoted to Superintendent with anything above an associate of arts degree and the first Native American to be an EE Supervisor, Superintendent, Senior Superintendent, and "safety officer". A diversity success story.

My experience is that his is a non issue. Women at the lab perform about the same as men. Mostly good, some real stinkers high in Z and human resources. There are a few very, very good men and women as well.

Not many of either are canonized.

Not the point. Women are catered to, and get promoted at an extraordinarily rate compared to other genders and racial groups.

extraordinarily fast rate, that is

Yeah, their fruit is low-hanging, that's for sure. Not a thought above the waist for anyone on this thread.

Translation: Extra time to learn the same job for the "sake of diversity".
Really? This just sounds foolish?

What crack are you smoking? The GOB network is alive and well in the Weapon's programs. You will see more women managers in the science divisions but hardly any higher than team leader under LANL PADWP.

So knowingly promoting less skilled folks is the best way to achieve better results at the lab?
I doubt I'm the one on crack.
By the way, the only crack at the lab is the one about to come from Goldstein's whip (see other blog fore reference

There's quite an amount of butt crack... just sayin'.
