    Downside of the #MeToo movement

    Found this interesting as recently I heard a male coworker say that maybe we should just stop hiring so many females if they make the workplace difficult.

    Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg warned Sunday morning about the potential for women to wind up on the losing end of what seems like a watershed moment in feminism. The Lean In author is cheering women on, but she writes in a lengthy Facebook post, “I have already heard the rumblings of a backlash.”

    Over the last two months, every day has seemed to bring new allegations of sexual misconduct against powerful men, who are facing real consequences for their actions. And people are already saying, “‘This is why you shouldn’t hire women,’” Sandberg writes.

    “Actually, this is why you should,” she continues. Hiring, mentoring and promoting women is the only long-term solution to sexual harassment, which is all about power, according to Sandberg. In her post, she also outlines some basic guidelines that companies should follow if they’re serious about preventing harassment at work. “Doing right by women in the workplace does not just mean treating them with respect. It also means not isolating or ignoring them,” Sandberg writes. “And it means making access equal. Whether that means you take all your direct reports out to dinner or none of them, the key is to give men and women equal opportunities to succeed.”

    Even better solution.

    Don't hire liberal men and the sexual misconduct would stop all together.

    I suspected that this might happen, push women out of the workforce and problem solved. Unfortunately, men will have to put up with women since we make up half the workforce and men make up lower numbers for college entry. Married men also have began to enjoy our paychecks as well. It takes a two income household these days if you want to accumulate assets, save money, or just enjoy your life. Women need to report sexual harassment in a timely fashion if they want to be taken seriously or believed. I have to laugh about this tho, I still work with male older doctors who call me over to press enter for them, since they can't get a grasp on EHR. Prior to that, in the corporate sector, I worked with men who could not figure out how to place a call on hold. It would be interesting to watch if women were not in the workplace anymore. Maybe if men were excluded from the workforce, sexual harassment would end and the environment would become more productive. It goes both ways.

    If you notice on the two morning news programs...No male presenters.

    CBS had Norah, Gayle and sitting in all week Elizabeth Colingriga [sp].

    NBC had Savannah and Hoda.

    Maybe men are the problem

    Ok

    Maybe it wouldn’t stop it altogether but at least 99%.

    I'm fine with women working. In fact, I truly hope to marry a woman who wants to do all the working! 8 years as an officer in the military and I'm pooped. Funemployment is great, but eventually I'll need cashflow.

    BTW pretty crazy how this election has put so much hate in the left wing, that they now support North Korea (per your sig).

    That's idiotic. Not to mention gender discrimination, or should be (certainly would be up here; in Canada, you ain't allowed to refuse to hire someone because of their gender, race, ethnicity, national original, sexual orientation, or religion, I believe, it's in our Charter of Rights and Freedoms).
