“Praise single mothers”

Every so often I venture to and look around at the articles that are posted up on CNN.com just to look for the most inane piece that I can find. In this case it’s a non-news story entitled “Let us now praise single moms” written by one David G. Allen. Mr. Allen starts off by rattling off how he was raised by a single mother who bought weird health food, getting made fun of for “fake Nikes“, getting in fights with others kids about not having a dad, and of course being “demonstratively, the poorest kid in my school” (12 years of Catholic school, by the way).  After a few paragraphs describing his own childhood Mr. Allen starts discussing research that looks at the socioeconomic status of single-parent families, decries the lack of federally mandated paid paternal leave and claims to cite studies that supposedly illustrate single parenthood has no long-term effect on children. The first research article that Mr. Allen misuses is entitled “Growing up with a single mother and life satisfaction in adulthood: A test of mediating and moderating factors” by David Richter and Sakari Lemola and is free for anyone to view (PDF here).

Mr. Allen claims that the study found “nearly no impact on general life satisfaction” and also quotes only a single part of the research article: “supporting the widely held notion from popular science that boys are more affected than girls by the absence of their fathers.” I did something that most people clicking on this clickbait article probably did not do and actually decided to read some of the study. Here’s the Abstract:

Single parenthood is increasingly common in Western societies but only little is known
about its long-term effects. We therefore studied life satisfaction among 641 individuals
(ages 18±66 years) who spent their entire childhood with a single mother, 1539 individuals who spent part of their childhood with both parents but then experienced parental separation, and 21,943 individuals who grew up with both parents. Individuals who grew up with a single mother for their entire childhood and to a lesser degree also individuals who experienced parental separation showed a small but persistent decrease in life satisfaction into old age (emphasis mine) controlling childhood socio-economic status. This decrease was partly mediated by worse adulthood living conditions related to socio-economic and educational success, physical health, social integration, and romantic relationship outcomes. No moderation by age, gender, and societal system where the childhood was spent (i.e. western oriented FRG or socialist GDR) was found.

It seems pretty apparent from the beginning that Mr. Allen misrepresents what the research article delves into but let’s through a little more of it. The study states that their are three main methods in which being raised by single mothers affects children in the long term: “less effective guardianship“, a “generally lower socioeconomic status“, and the “missing-father hypothesis. ” This study interestingly took data from families in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) and the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) to account for vastly differing variables.  The study goes onto describe how the data was sampled, variables considered, and how to analyze “life satisfaction.” The paper described how parents being divorced for the child’s entire life, separated part of the time, and how parents who never separated affected the future happiness of the child.

figure_1

Here are a few good quotes from page 10:

However, the differences in general life satisfaction between respondents who lived with both parents for their first 15 years of life and either group of respondents reared by a single mother remained significant in all models, even when all adulthood life circumstances were controlled for.

This is the first study to show that growing up with a single mother is related to a stable
although modest reduction in general life satisfaction across the adult life-span until old age when adjusting for poor childhood SES

From page 12:

The reduction in adulthood life satisfaction was partially mediated by the individuals’ living conditions, including their lower socio-economic status and educational level, lower physical health status, and poor social integration and romantic success in adulthood.”

It seems that economic factors partially account for lower happiness, but I don’t really think that it adds to the argument that being a single parent is a better option.

The last tidbit that I’ll take from the study is on page 13:

In conclusion, the present study shows that growing up with a single mother in particular if the father is absent for the entire childhood predicts a small but stable decrease in life satisfaction across adulthood that is partly explained by lower socio-economic status and educational achievement, inferior physical health, poor social integration, and lower likelihood of romantic relationship success in adulthood. Contrary to expectations this effect was not moderated by sex, age, or the societal system in which the childhood was spent.

I wonder if Mr. Allen is intentionally lying and misrepresenting the report or if he didn’t read past the first few pages? The author at CNN goes on to cite another “study“, but this one isn’t really a study. From page 3 of 4 of this very colorful paper:

Given the diversity of families within these groups, further analysis is needed before we can suggest that living in a single parent household has a positive impact on a child’s wellbeing.

OK then, so it’s not a study but rather just a regurgitation of a dataset with no analysis. It has lots of graphs though…

Well, at least the kids of single parents get to see grandpa and grandma more.

figure_5

Our low-testosterone author goes on to state how being raised by a single mother made him the adult that he is today though. Mr. Allen received an “Emersonian amount of self-reliance”, figured out how to apply to a college, and some other stuff that lots of people figure out how to do on their own as well. I suppose that I’m not as “class-conscious” as our male feminist author. I don’t think that I’m going to take Mr. Allen’s lead and praise all single mothers; he makes them all sound like their heroes who never, ever do anything wrong to their children (or their ex). If you want to get one last laugh out of this guy, be sure to read his article on “Why Jeanette Rankin should be on the $10 bill.” Just for reference, she was the only member of Congress to vote against the declaration of war against Japan in 1941.

 

 

San Diego Women’s March 2019 Video Footage

The “Women’s March” occurred all across the United States just yesterday and I decided to check it out, take some video, and troll a few of the chants. I’m not even certain as to why this is called a “Women’s March” when it’s really just about leftists and Democratic Party policy views in general. I’ll have more to post up soon but here are some of the best clips. I didn’t realize that the “Socialist Feminism Movement” was a thing but now I know better. Isn’t it just wonderful to see these kind, caring progressives using their children (including infants) as agitprop devices? It just warms my heart…

Remember folks, it’s for the children:

Scientist Man explains Ghostbusters (2016)

Did you dislike the new Ghostbusters film? If so, you’re an overweight, virginal, Ku Klux Klan, basement dwelling, toy-unboxer who hates women and black people.   Remember, you aren’t allowed to have your own opinions if they contradict against feminism. Let us listen to Scientist Man as he analyzes and explains the new Ghostbusters film in great detail:

If you have some extra time, feel free to enjoy this Half in the Bag episode:

Some of the best comments:

ghostfailer ghostfailer1 ghostfailer2 ghostfailer3

It’s simply amazing that a film like Ghostbusters was politicized and turned into some sort of fight against “misogyny” and “patriarchy.” This is where we’re at; this is where feminists have brought us. What came first: the feminist angle or just a bad film? Why not both at the same time?

Is air conditioning sexist?

Good-Joke-2014-Feminist-Logic

Greetings comrades, tonight we will be exploring a new frontier in social justice: air conditioning. Let’s listen to Comrade Sanghani break it down for us:

Now let’s take a look at what the Communist News Network has to say concerning this issue:

All feminists need to create a most equal society is more power and most importantly, more money. You may not have known before that air conditioning is sexist but now you do. Perhaps a more important question is: what isn’t sexist? What new boundaries will social justice push? What new slights and insults will be discovered? Perhaps gay men are sexist for not wanting to have sex with women? Subscribe to Poor Me! magazine to find out!

Prog_Off

Honestly, how is one supposed to satirize such a story? What could I add to make feminism seem any more ridiculous? I could always identify actual restrictions of liberty and persecution for them. How about Iran, where it is a matter of national policy to follow Sharia and execute homosexuals? We could look at South Africa, where one in four men admit to committing rape? I guess that it’s the white man’s fault that Iran executes homosexuals. Based upon one of the Puffington Host articles I found about South Africa that’s what progressives seem to be doing:

The South African Constitution is arguable one of the most progressive constitutions in the world, for innumerable reasons, but for the purposes of this blog post, I want to focus on the fact that Section 9, Subsection 3 specifically prohibits discrimination against people on the basis of their sexual orientation.

What is it with progressives and thinking that a piece of paper alone does anything? If no one believes in it, the piece of paper does not matter.

The problem, though, is that there seems to be a gap in South Africa between the legal realm and the sociocultural realm. And in this gap appears the phenomenon known as ‘corrective’ rape. Corrective rape is a phenomenon wherein a homosexual person is raped as a means of ‘correcting’ their sexual orientation. In most cases, the victims are black lesbians. This phenomenon takes place in other countries as well, but for the purposes of this post I’m focusing on South Africa.

So this has to do with Zulu and Xhosa culture right?

In South Africa most cases of corrective rape are against black lesbians, and I’m going to analyze this phenomenon in the context of a post-apartheid South Africa deeply embedded in a culture of heteronormativity. I read a very enlightening article by Megan Morrissey in the journal Womyn’s Studies in Communication, which talks about the discourse among black South Africans around corrective rape. In the article Morrissey discusses the common argument from black Africans that the practice of homosexuality is un-African, something brought about during colonization.

Did “heteronormativity” not exist in South Africa before some Dutch settlers founded Cape Town? Didn’t take long to blame the white man for what other people do. The Boer Republics that existed in the 19th century occupied completely different lands than the Zulu and Xhosa kingdoms occupied anyway. Based upon what the author is writing it seems like this phenomenon has happened before. Oh yeah, and the author uses “womyn” instead of women.

Many people quoted and interviewed in the article state that homosexuality is exclusive to the white man and his culture. By distancing black African culture from homosexuality, these people marginalize black gay Africans from their own culture. There is a further alienation of black lesbians, who would only be allowed back into the larger culture if their non-normative sexual orientation changed. So men subject these womyn to corrective rape as a ‘rite of passage’ back into the culture, because they believe that this act would force these womyn to ‘submit,’ become heterosexual, and assume their ‘proper’ role in society.

Even though the crime is being committed by someone else, the evil white man is to blame for someone else’s culture.

In South Africa, homosexuality is associated with white culture, and because of the years of apartheid rule, there exist tensions between black and white cultures in South Africa. Homophobia and violence, in the form of corrective rape, is a means to marginalize the white culture and regain a nationalistic identity that they believe was stolen from them due to years of colonization and apartheid.

Corrective rape is thus, on a very general level, a post-colonial and post-apartheid reaction to the white culture in South Africa. This explanation does not excuse their actions, but is does trace the violence back to the source. The question is: What next? The reason that corrective rape has persisted is that there has been a cultural, social, and even legal normalization and acceptance of the practice.

So, black South Africans are doing what they did before the British Empire pushed the Boer Republics and black African nations together in the same country? This is the fault of the Dutch, Boer Republics, and British? Amazing logic.

There needs to be a cultural and social resocialization and subsequent normalization of homosexuality in South Africa, and the first step toward ensuring that the citizens accept non-normative sexuality is to show that the state supports it. To do that, the state needs to provide legal and political recourse for victims and survivors of corrective rape in South Africa.

So South Africa needs to undergo “resocialization” does it? I thought that progressives believed that “indigenous” cultures should be left alone? The author, Ms. Okafor, doesn’t seem to realize that politics follows culture. Ms. Okafor might not also realize that reality doesn’t work like McMaster University. South Africa is a crime-ridden hellhole, and that’s probably not changing anytime soon.

Safe spaces at the University of Pennsylvania

The state of Modern Educayshun

(Hat-tip to Powerline) Some of you may have heard about how an oppressed minority student at the University of Missouri started a hunger strike and some perpetually outraged Party members held protests because some guy in a truck supposedly yelled a racial slur one time. As we all know, cis-gendered, homophobic, privileged, white (spit), imperialistic, men are responsible for the world’s problems and taxpayer dollars need to go towards creating safe spaces for adult Party members on campus. Asking oppressed Party members to back up their opinions requires thinking and might hurt their delicate psyches. Don’t be a thoughtcriminal comrade, comply with progressive ideals and demands!

Guilty until proven innocent in California

Feminists have achieved another victory in the People’s Republic of California. Senate Bill 358 was just signed by Governor Moonbeam Brown, under which “Female workers in California will get new tools to challenge gender-based wage gaps…

One of the most interesting parts to note about this bill is that employers accused of discrimination will have to prove themselves innocent, which is the complete opposite of how the U.S. Justice System is supposed to work. Men are no longer innocent until proven guilty under this legislation.

The bill by Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, a Santa Barbara Democrat, expands California’s existing equal pay law and goes further than federal law by placing the burden on the employer to prove a man’s higher pay is based on factors other than gender.

No longer is it the burden on the accuser or prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that one is guilty. The burden of proof is now on the accused. Let’s look at more of what is in this news article.

“‘The stratification and the pay disparities in California and in America, probably in the world, are something that really eats away at our whole society,’ Brown said…

Has Governor Brown looked into why there are “pay disparities” in the workplace? Is it really that businesses simply pay women less for doing the same work as men? Why would so many business waste their time hiring men if this was true? Capitalists are evil and money-grubbing in the eyes of progressives right? I suppose that doesn’t apply if we’re talking about the Patriarchy. Damned male privilege.

death

Could it be that the oft cited 77% statistic doesn’t actually control for applicable factors at the same time? Could it be that comparing all men to all women isn’t a great way to look at the pay data? Should we enforce equality concerning death in the workplace? Should women be forced to do jobs that they don’t want to do? Why not enforce gender equality in child custody cases also? Women won’t have to take as much time off from work if they don’t get to keep the kids as often.

3031968-inline-i-percent-bachelors-degrees-women-usa

It’s also interesting that progressives never really talk about liberty or freedom that often. They’re more likely to use the words equality or fairness. I think that this shows where the priorities of progressives lie. It’s not about allowing individual citizens to make their own choices, but rather, a guaranteed equality of results. If the government has to use significant force to do what progressives believe should be done, so be it. Let’s look at what Ezra Klein had to say about liberty in her article: “Yes Means Yes” is a terrible law, and I completely support it.

Every discussion of the Yes Means Yes law needs to begin with a simple number: A 2007 study by the Department of Justice found that one in five women is the victim of an attempted or completed sexual assault while in college.

One. In. Five.

The Campus Sexual Assault Study has been cited by many (including President Obama) as a fine piece of research. It actually uses the number 13.7%, not 20%. It only took data from two colleges in the United States. In a future post I’ll delve into why this publication is extremely flawed in detail, but the War on Women narrative is Ms. Klein’s reason for ignoring the U.S. Justice System

“‘No Means No’ has created a world where women are afraid. To work, “Yes Means Yes” needs to create a world where men are afraid.”

Justice doesn’t matter, just fear and Ms. Klein’s idea of what is right in society. I think that Ms. Klein is taking lessons from the wrong justice system.

Critics worry that colleges will fill with cases in which campus boards convict young men (and, occasionally, young women) of sexual assault for genuinely ambiguous situations. Sadly, that’s necessary for the law’s success.

What business do college administrators have in adjudicating any such matters? Rape is a matter for courts to deal with, not for college administrators to decide that someone needs to be deprived of their liberty. She is just talking about “sexual assault” and not rape though. What does Ms. Klein define as sexual assault? The innocent being punished doesn’t seem to matter to feminists.

Or take another common situation: consent that may or may not have been delivered by someone who may or may not have been too drunk to deliver it.

What if they’re both drunk? Is no one able to give consent? Did they rape each other? Why would the onus be on just the man?

11737885_405996876258392_8918652002700620669_n

Then there’s the true nightmare scenario: completely false accusations of rape by someone who did offer consent, but now wants to take it back. I don’t want to say these kinds of false accusations never happen, because they do happen, and they’re awful. But they happen very, very rarely.

Of course, the author offers no proof to back up her assertions. She’s made it apparent that she doesn’t care how many innocent citizens are imprisoned.

Colleges have settled into an equilibrium where too little counts as sexual assault, where the ambiguity of consent gives rapists loopholes in which to hide, and forces women to spend their lives afraid.

The author doesn’t take the time to describe what “sexual assault” is herself. I notice that she only once used the word “rape” in her article, and even then, it was in reference to false accusations. I wonder why? No need for progressives to think of liberty or freedom, the State and Party™ will determine what is best for individual citizens. It’s getting close to the world of Next Tuesday™ in California.

Feminist thoughts on gender quotas, the wage gap, and guaranteed equality

Today I just felt like discussing whether feminist ideals of using government power to force an equality of results really makes any sense. If it’s equality that feminists are interested in, why aren’t they calling for equal death? 92% of workplace deaths in the U.S. are men.

death

One can take a quick look through some U.S. Department of Labor statistics and see that there are some fields that women are simply avoiding. Amongst civil and aerospace engineers women make up about only ten percent. Electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineers are staffed by about only seven percent women. Women make up about only one percent of professions such as: heavy equipment operators, electricians, and automotive mechanics. Some quick research shows that women seem to be shunning physics and engineering degrees. Perhaps it’s personal choices that are the reason for women preferring a degree in education or nursing over engineering and science fields rather than discrimination? But the narrative of personal choice doesn’t fit the progressive-feminist view of the world though. Progressives will just continue to conflate liberty with a guaranteed equality of results.

0301_mens-college-majors_398x370 0301_womens-college-majors_398x370 3031968-inline-i-percent-bachelors-degrees-women-usa

I took a quick look on the progressive website ThinkCommunist ThinkProgress where leftists were decrying the “gender wage gap” in a typical feminist manner. The author used the usual tropes such as: women make less even when they have the same degree, get paid less on their first job, and made the profound observation that women who have children make less money. The author claimed that “women get paid less in their first job than men who graduate with the same grades, majors, and choice of occupation“. The link is dead and leads to the American Association of University Women’s (AAUW) website, so I can’t verify the veracity of this claim. But I wonder if that report accounted for the number of hours worked per week?

Some other specific claims that the authors makes are “A woman makes less than a man no matter much education she gets, what job she chooses, or where she lives“. Concerning the source cited for education, the document only looks at what educational attainment was achieved and no other factors were controlled for. The number of hours worked and experience were not accounted for, just gross averages comparing the wages of all men and women with the same education received (scroll down to page 11 of the document for the applicable portion). A Bureau of Labor Statistics infographic was cited for the “job she chooses” statement. Once again, this document only controlled for a single factor, in this case, the industry chosen. Education, experience, and the number of hours worked were not considerations, just the average of all men compared to women in a field. Concerning the “where she lives” statement, the same fallacy has once again been committed. The source is a Slate article that compares the earnings of women and men by state and controls for no other factors.

Further down the line, the author claims: “While some of the wage gap can be explained by things such as work patterns, job tenure, race, and marital status, some of it just can’t be explained by different life choices or characteristics and instead is likely thanks to discrimination“. The citation for this little gem is a General Accounting Office (GAO) report concerning gender differences in pay. While the author of the ThinkProgress article may claim that discrimination may be the cause for differences in pay (and for once, his source actually controlled for more than one factor) she offers no proof to substantiate this claim. I guess I’m just supposed to take her word on this, because the GAO doesn’t offer proof that discrimination is the cause. On page six they write the following:

gao1

In other words, Ms. Covert is implying a conclusion that the data does not claim. The Factual Feminist (a.k.a Christina Hoff Sommers) wrote an interesting piece on the Huffington Post concerning the “gender wage gap” that progressives just can’t ever shut up about. This article uses data from the fine folks at the AAUW to disprove the claim that women make 77% of what men do for the same work. As it turns out, you really do have to control for relevant factors to fully understand what the data is telling you. A man who has to support a wife and several children might work a few extra hours, which would explain the extra money made by married men that ThinkProgress laments so much. Let’s hear some more fun facts about the gender pay gap from Dear Leader and Comrade Carney:

Let’s here some more thoughts on why the wage gap exists and how it’s not the way feminists portray it:

Isn't it amazing what you can do with statistics?
Isn’t it amazing what you can do with statistics?

One of the last things the ThinkProgress article goes on to decry is the fraction of working mothers who take time off work compared to working men. The author didn’t even make an attempt to look at why this might be true, the statistics simply didn’t fall in line with a guaranteed equality of results that progs demand. If men didn’t lose custody of children so much during divorce, perhaps the amount of time taken off by working fathers and mothers wouldn’t be so different?

For all of the feminists who claim that life is easier just because you’re a man, have you ever tried to live as a man does? A lesbian woman who decided to become a man for over a year turned back into a woman. Feminists certainly aren’t interested in liberty, but do they even want equality or just special privileges? Do progressives actually care about the suffering of all people equally? Or is it just special interest groups, votes, and power that matter to socialists/feminists/progressives?
