(Sorry about the quality of the text - I played around with this to fit it for a while.)
This Kung Flu Panic-fest scam of a response has started what could be Great Depression 2.0, but we don't know yet. Now, if you've read our many posts with the Global Financial Stupidity Topic Key, you know that Peak Stupidity has expected the SHTF economically for quite some time. It is inevitable, but we wonder here if this Panic-fest has been the trigger for an early arrival of said depression.
We will pivot from the general COVID nonsense, riots of blacks and Communists, and movies for a bit toward the old subject of Feminism. There is the Kung Flu connection in this one still. An outfit, I think just a website really, called "The 19th", obviously named after one of our many least favorite Constitutional Amendments*, is specifically worried about this "recession"'s effect on woman.
Per "The 19th", we are in America’s first female recession. After reading the article, I can't help but wonder if this could have been lifted from The Babylon Bee or somewhere. It's not LOL funny like the BB posts, but it lays out everything that is wrong with women in the workplace and the feminist perspective regarding working women/women working, but just as if the writer is intensely serious about this. Hell, I think she is!
It was weighing on her — the prospect of starting a dream job in the middle of a pandemic, alone, her husband away 100 hours of the week helping fight COVID-19 inside a hospital infected by it. Her two boys were at home, without a teacher, with assignments, walking in on her work calls, interrupting her, passing her sticky notes, requesting — no, demanding — her attention every hour they were awake.First off, yeah, well, I mean...
“If you come in, I will lose my job,” she told her 6-year-old in desperation, trying to keep him away.
Her husband was the hero. He was saving lives. She was the terrible mom — “the worst mom ever,” her sons told her — and the terrible worker.
If this woman's husband is working 100 hours weekly right now as one of those healthcare HEROES we discussed, she shouldn't need to work for money right now. She damn well OUGHT TO be staying home with the kids. It sounds like they like the attention they are finally getting from their own Mom rather than from the Day Care attendants/babysitters. Is that not a positive thing for her?
What the hell kind of Mom is she? Her husband is working 100 hours weekly, so doesn't have the time, while the kids are bored shitless when this Mom could have assigned them some homeschooling work. If Mrs. Ellu Nasser (got her name on the 3rd paragraph) is a business hotshot, then doing a little work to set up a small program with a schedule ought not to be hard for her.
In three months, Ellu Nasser watched as her white-knuckled grip on the labor force slackened. She drank more, ]there ya' go, Mom, that'll do it!] before giving it up altogether in March. She told the dream job at a major consulting firm that her family responsibilities would get in the way of her work performance, so she couldn’t begin June 1, their agreed start date. She slinked back to the part-time gig she had consulting on climate change. And then in June, she gave that up, too.Hahaaa! The part-time Climate Change job was it? I didn't know one could work part-time on preventing the climate from changing. It sounds like a full-time job requiring 100 hours a week by a full TEAM of guys. Does a part time gig on "the climate" pay any better than stocking shelves at Target?
I wish I could say that this consulting firm of whatever sort would hire a man who is trying to feed a family, not avoid his family, since Mrs Nasser declined the position. However, I'd guess another man, especially a white man, still does not have a chance in hell. Maybe even an ordinary single white women wouldn't, as the name Nasser makes me figure that was what clinched it in the first place.
For exactly one day, the relief was overwhelming. Then, worry.It sounds like Mrs. Nasser's work is more important than her children. What kind of women is she? Being a stay-at-home Mom, as in real mother to her kids was "collateral damage", she says. How sick this Western World is becoming!
“I kept wondering, ‘How long will the personal choices I made around COVID-19 hurt me permanently?’” said Nasser, 42. “I would like to be working for 25 more years. That’s a joy for me. My work is not separate from who I am as a person.”
Nasser was a stay-at-home mom for the first time in her life. She was collateral damage in what has become America’s first female recession.
I'd saved this article in a tab over a month ago, and, upon reading it again, this one gets me so angry at the feminists and feminism that I will have to continue in a Part 2. No, this sick article by one Chabeli Carrazana, Economics Editor, is no spoof. To me this article is a treatise on the evils of feminism. There is a lot more to this article, so I will continue this fisking** in earnest very soon.
