Well gang things have changed quite drastically since I started my full time job almost a decade and a half ago. During the first decade of my employment, my contingent was made up of men. We didn’t have to worry about what we said to and about each other, due to the fact that we were all men and were used to the male ribbing we had been exposed to since adolescence. That had changed almost two years ago when we underwent tremendous expansion and introduced the first females into our positions in our tiny but growing company.
Our team of men grew from just a journeyman, and myself to another two men who required training, to finally a group of 10 members, in which four of them are female.
Now don’t get me wrong my fellow denizens of the Manosphere, the ladies we initially hired at first grabbed respect pretty handily. They didn’t hide behind their gender and are quite adept at their jobs. I have no issue going to bat for them whatsoever as they have proved their worth many times over. Moreover, they had NO issues stating that much of what they could do was solely due to the assistance of the men on the team.
The role we fill varies greatly, some days are simply filled with deludes of paperwork being completed on a computer, other days are very labor intensive in which the power which men alone can provide becomes crucial to the success of the job assigned. Granted I have to relay this issue, which had been repeated when our female contingent grew from one member to our current four. At every stage I can remember hearing our female members stating that they DIDN’T wish for any additional females to join our ranks. The answer was always the same; the women we did have where awesome, but they simply didn’t know about anyone new coming into the fold
Due to my Manosphere education, I knew full well of their reservations, which brings me to this current situation. We’ve a new recruit amongst our ranks and is raring to be recognized. I can’t lie, she’s adept at what she does and is very eager to learn, and therefore I treated her in the same manner as the other three females we hired onto our team. I was wary at first after hearing about the so many issues many Manosphere denizens have had with women in the workplace but I thought we had been lucky so far so we really had nothing to fear. However, it was only this week that I had noticed three things, which have bestowed a tiny inkling about a possible foreboding future on our team.
Strike one; A conversation I had with her in regards to current television shows turns into her stating how our society is victimizing women without one word from her in regards to the issues facing men. This alone wouldn’t have been such an issue but it lead to…
Strike two; My helping her during a procedure which required quite a bit of physical strength and her stating to me “You know Omni…I DO work out.” The procedure we were engaged in at the time wasn’t the most pleasant and in the end I still had to assist her regardless. I was still reeling about this situation when a day later…
Strike three; Someone had brought in some Girl Guide Cookies and our new recruit had made a statement regarding the illustration on the cookie box. She had stated how young girls only used binoculars and chased after butterflies as depicted on the image covering the box. Her sarcasm was dripping heavily but I don’t think anyone was Red Pill enough to catch what was being thrown.
I guess the party maybe over gang. Quite possibly things may change drastically after her probationary period is up. She’s qualified and diligent enough that her employment is all but guaranteed. In addition, the upcoming projects we have coming down the pipe means that we are desperately in need of more ‘man’power (see what I did there). Part of me worries about what the future will bring to our department, but due to the current situation in society, it was bound to happen to us eventually. In reality, it was only a matter of time, and I guess our time has finally come. I could be wrong, and I hope that this is indeed the case. However, due to the strikes that I’ve seen so readily, I’ve somewhat detached from this new recruit in the hopes of creating some much-needed distance in case something does go awry.
