You can hear the soyboys at Gizmodo LITERALLY SHAKING as you read it: Nineteen percent of Chinese help-wanted listings specify men only. Some of the listings boast that there will be “attractive women” available for socialization or even dating, and there’s truth behind those boasts as female “motivators” are also being hired by those same companies. The “motivators” are mostly there to look good and keep an eye out for the needs of “their” men.
The organization “Human Rights Watch”, which is a self-appointed overseer of everything from serious issues like female genital mutilation to I CAN’T EVEN silliness like the above, is busy attempting to shame Chinese companies like Tencent and Alibaba into ceasing the above practices so they can adopt the current West Coast model of sexless bugpeople using gender-neutral pronouns and chugging Soylent as they sublimate all of their normal sexual impulses into eighty hours a week’s worth of collaborative work body language to improve shareholder value before the Logan’s Run dynamic of Silicon Valley painlessly reallocates them into unemployment lines at the advanced age of thirty-four.
Needless to say, the Chinese are making a superficial gesture or two to address “the problematic issue” then they will go right back to unashamedly sexist policies in every aspect of their political, corporate, and personal lives. There’s a reason for this: the Chinese have already seen the future, and it doesn’t work.
“Women hold up half the sky.” So Chairman Mao said, and so the Chinese Communists believed, even as their attempts to remake society in a gender-neutral image foundered on the shores of reality. The socialists of China, just like their Russian contemporaries and their Californian successors, truly believed that there was no substantial difference between men and women other than their reproductive organs. It doesn’t matter what the science says; if O’Brien could defy the laws of physics and “float off the floor” through the force of political power, surely the lesser laws of biology and psychiatry would pose even less of a problem!
And thus it went for the better part of four decades, until Nixon and his useful-idiot successors allowed China to effectively re-imagine itself on the backs of the American and European factory worker. I doubt that the Chinese ruling class ever thought that the party would last as long as it has, which is why they forced a mass migration from farm to factory as quickly as possible and killed countless people doing so. No Chinese government official would be as stupid as Messrs. Clinton, Bush, and Obama; none of them would hand over the manufacturing base of their country to a foreign power just to have cheaper towels in Wal-Mart. Only Americans, and to a lesser extent Western Europeans, are that stupid.
In their headlong rush to take advantage of a situation that could not have felt permanent to them, the Chinese gave up on even the least semblance of sentiment. They worship profit with a purity that no trader at Goldman Sachs has ever felt. They are unfettered by morality, love, or sentiment. They care about just one thing: Does it work? It is the same mentality that allowed the United States to become the Arsenal of Democracy in just two short years, but it is pursued in a far more ruthless fashion.
Most critically, China is fundamentally atheist. Not in the way that the University of California system is atheist; those idiots practice a religion called “atheism” in which an entire Pantheon of false gods is worshiped. By contrast, the Chinese generally have no religion at all. Which means that they are free. If it makes sense to march millions of people off their land into miserable factories, there is no God who prohibits it. If it increases profit to use forced labor, there is no Invisible Sky Jesus to prevent such a thing occurring.
Nobody knows how many people have been killed by the Chinese government in the name of profit. It is certainly more than have been killed by “gun violence” or drunk driving or even secondhand smoke. The Chinese take blood and squeeze the money out of it. In one cruel and unintentionally hilarious irony, they created an internationally-recognized “progressive” hotel chain using profits and plans based directly on the murder of ten thousand or more people at Tiananmen Square. This progressive hotel caters to people who cannot take Donald Trump’s “deadly rhetoric”. Never mind that Trump may have just brought an end to the North Korean flashpoint. He defeated Hillary Clinton in an election. That is a crime worse than the murder of ten thousand students, by quite a long shot, am I right?
Any mindset that can wink at murder-for-profit will laugh out loud at the modern liberal golden calves of FGM (Forced Gender Minimization) and “racism” and “sexism” and all that other crap. The Chinese only care about results. Their experience is that men program better than women and that men surrounded by attractive “cheerleaders” program even better. So that’s what they are going to do. And they will get results, as they always do.
When the Chinese tech firms finally eclipse the increasingly moronic nation-states of Google and Facebook, those entities will scream and whine that they were sabotaged by Trump or by rednecks or by toxic masculinity. They will be wrong. It will be their own love that killed them; their love of the atheist religion that assigns value to people based on their skin color or gender or ability to duckspeak whatever brand of idiocy is currently popular. Our progressive overlords behave like people in love. When you are in love, you are blind to the faults of your beloved. But the Chinese are not blind to those faults. They are like the jilted lovers of socialism. They are free to see the flaws in the things you value too much to examine, whether those things are “alt-right” or “progressive” or neither. They only value the end game, the end product, the bottom line. As Lorde would say, they aren’t caught up in your love affair.
