Once again you miss the obvious joke. I am going to assume you are neural divergent as it's a pattern I am observing. I saw no intent to have a go at you, just the humour of you commentimg on your own post.

I regularly suggest female hires, it makes lots of sense for the increase in diversity of thought - that's what true diversity is in my eyes - that and having more fit birds to ogle (never hire the ugly ones, nightmare)

I would say that I find it shocking how some here excuse that sort of bigotry, but having seen their posts for a few years one realises that they don't want equality (or indeed democracy), they just want the scales tipped to their tribe's side.
Anti-male sexism is equally as unacceptable as anti-female sexism, I don't know how anyone who claims to be fair minded can justify advantaging one group of people over another today, this generation, on the grounds that yesterday it was the other way around for the last generation. It's well known that two wrongs don't make a right, but no matter, the modern-day bigots think that replicating yesterday's bigots is fine. They do it with every other identity group, and then they wonder why the majority of people are rejecting their ideology.

I don't get affected by sexism - mostly because I have a very in-demand and respected skill set, and don't need to be managed (because I manage myself) nor be a manager (and I don't want to be one), Likewise, my sons are embarking on professions where they are highly skilled and trained and its unlikely to affect them. I do feel sorry though for those young men who irrespective of how much effort they put in they are being discriminated against just because of what dangles between their legs. Sure, there's plenty of very competent women taking the promotions but its not the level and fair playing field that it should be.

Now I click the I have a disability box, doesn't do anything but hey I am considered to have a mental health disability by the province, so I am telling the truth.
Unfortunately your white skin and sex get trumped. Disability is way down the rankings compared with those.

It another theme from the trash alt right - white men are a persecuted and oppressed group. "Great replacement" is out to get them. There was more about it on the link he posted with the racist and anti-semitic memes. It's as idiotic as it is unpleasant.

Years ago son complained about his boss's choice of newly appointed female secretary----"some old bag, over 4O". Now he himself is over 40 I haven't noticed similar remarks!

I was half expecting after the some old bag over 40 that his mother walked into the room and sat in the secretary's chair.

And apparently we are the snowflakes.

Edit: Though that last post from Paulry did give me some sympathy for him. I don't know what leads people down different paths, but seeing that lack of confidence in his gender, that sense of powerlessness, and fear, no matter how misplaced, and the sense of urgency that one senses from Paulry, it's both sad and scary.

And in this sense only people like him are victims - the weak manipulated through their fears to see huge segments of their fellow human beings as "other" (sex, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, lack of religion, national origin, etc etc). In this way they can at least feel better than someone, while in their fear they band together in the ways they are told to band together by interests larger than theirs. It's the oldest trick in the book. It works.

However, if you wallow in and promote bigoted and ignorant filth - even if you claim it isn't or that you aren't responsible for the material you provide - then zero sympathy. They shall not pass.

Very smart black male detective, very smart female white/black detective with physical agility and strength far beyond the gender norm and mediocre often aging white male detective. No Hollywood TV police series can leave home without it.

Maybe you should spend less time watching TV. There is life beyond popular culture, you know.

Popular culture is becoming very much the way of the future.

Assuming "M" was a real MI6 appointment I would have thought that the position would have been filled by someone with an actual background of field experience. Also if I recall in one 007 movie white male James Bond actually saved her life
