Has anyone noticed OP misspelled feminist as feminst.


Hahahaha, I've been reading your posts and just now yes.

Very good, I must be coming from an inauthentic place if I'm willing to let a spelling error slide in my thread title.

I will try harder next time, thank you.

Oops! I didn't catch that either. I've fixed it now, to make it easier to find the thread when using Search.

Feminism is merely another ploy, like all other "isms" (capitalism, fascism, marxism, etc.) to distract the little people from the salvation that is Technocracy and the Singularity. The reason people actually care about political bullsh|t and "social issues" in the first place is because they lack the primordial necessities of the animal known as homo sapiens: food, clothing, shelter, security and pleasure. Humans don't really want "freedom", and they want "equality" even less; what they really want is to eat and bang. Some want to fight too, but mostly eat and bang. Now imagine a system that guarantees the bare necessities for all humans, without having to break your back with 9 to 5 labor to obtain them, such a system would be the post-scarcity economy that moves beyond the price system. Both capitalists and marxists aim to silence discussion as to such a system, as they know their obtuse ideologies would become obsolete. Humans would enjoy a far greater standard of living without being engulfed in the endless man against man system of political debate and enmity, no longer forced to compete over resources and to justify their shortcomings by seeing oppression everywhere. Politics will not save us, religion will not save us, only science can save us. The way I see things, all politics, feminism included, is a monumental waste of time and energy, and you should be pursuing a career in science if you truly want to help the world. In the forthcoming generation, only a handful of dingbats will still care about such concepts as inequality and "social justice", and you can thank a scientist for that. They're doing the work that "social" scientists are only pretending to do.


That's one thing Feminism is working on, getting more women into the tech industry. Many women are graduating with some sort of tech degree, but many companies haven't been able to retain the women they hire. The environment has just been to hostile and unwelcoming. It's usually no big blow that causes it, but many smaller ones that add up over time.
