There Is Still Some Masculinity Left In Europe

In the Eastern part of it:)

Now before you start writing indignant comments about Korwin's sexism (love the name btw, reminds me of one of my favourite literary characters), which I won't publish anyway, here is a disclaimer:

As the previous video showed, the wage gap is largely due to women's choices. While an average woman isn't really more stupid than an average man, the top tier  intellectuals are mostly men. It has to do with the bell curve, IQ distribution, these sort of things (just google it, if you don't believe me). I guess few would disagree that men on average are stronger. They are also more aggressive and ambitious, work longer hours, do the most of really dangerous jobs, hence are often paid more.

While it doesn't seem correct for women to be paid less for doing exactly same jobs, higher salaries for men would enable more married women to stay home. It used to be called "married men wages" and there was a time when social feminists approved of it.

"Led by Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins and Mary Anderson of the Women's Bureau, the "social feminists" of the New Deal...sought...the family wage (which) would spare mothers from working and children from day care that social feminists rejected...If 'the provider for the family got sufficient wages,' said Mary Anderson, 'married women would not be obliged to go to work'..."

(Quoted from Domestic Tranquility by F. Carolyn Graglia, p.105).

In the comments to the vid above I read that the politician in question is largely supported by women. Now I wonder why? Do they want by any chance to be saved from "the drudgery of a cotton mill" (idem, p.104)? Something to think about...


  1. Feminists used to be vastly different in philosophy. They marched with signs saying "Save the Children!" They campaigned to prevent drinking in their neighborhoods and towns. Now they protest to allow women to be drunk and a lot more.

  2. I highly recommend the book I quoted. The lady who wrote it shows how originally there were two schools who both called themselves "feminist". One was pro-family and they supported higher wages for men in order to save the women from working outside home and children from daycare, the other one was the ancestors to modern feminists. It's like the workers' movement, there were actually two of them, one was aligned with social feminists and campaigned for better wages, the other was "against capitalism and for equality." After WWII the anti-family forces won over the pro-family side.

  3. It is so very easy to make feminists mad. :)

  4. This guy is just a first-class troll, have you seen his grin?:)
