She didn’t stick the landing, and she won’t leave the floor.

When Eat Pray Love came out, it appeared that Elizabeth Gilbert had successfully navigated her way through steps 1-8 of having it all.  But to succeed in this game of serial monogamy a woman needs to stick the landing.  In truth this detail was missing from the beginning as the hunky Latin stud Gilbert claimed to have traded her boring loyal dude for turned out to be a short bald elderly man who married her for a visa*.  But so long as Gilbert was willing to keep up the charade, so were most women in the west.  They wanted to believe the lie because they desperately wanted to have it all as well.

But now it has all unraveled very publicly, first with Gilbert announcing that she is divorcing her second husband, and then with her announcing that she has become a lesbian**.

Now I’ve just left another marriage, it’s starting to look irresponsible and people are saying I’m having a midlife crisis, and ‘What is she doing?’

The truth is Gilbert’s romantic life has always been a disaster, but so long as it appeared that she had stuck the landing her tale could be spun as one of triumph, as a sort of sexual rags to riches story.  Gilbert’s best move here would be to keep a low profile and allow the women who want to follow her path pretend it didn’t really morph into dark comedy.  But more than anything Gilbert craves attention, so even though this would be the pragmatic approach, she simply can’t help herself.

I need to live my life in truth and transparency, even more than I need privacy, or good publicity, or prudence, or other people’s approval or understanding, or just about anything else.

    Ha! Fact is stranger than fiction. Unless, of course, you adhere to the red pill. Then it just another predictable turn of the hamster wheel.

  2. I could be wrong, but what I take away from these most recent events is that this is the perfect “jump off” scenario for Gilbert. She gets to be controversial, garner attention, and doesn’t have to worry about any more lifetime commitments since this new person is terminally ill! Actually, that part is a bonus in another way, too – extra sympathy for Gilbert when she passes! It’s really the perfect next move.

    A man could be forgiven for reaching the conclusion that being gay is preferable to the prospect of a lifetime shackled to the likes of Gilbert.

    I think this is the plan, a desperate plea for a return to relevance. But this isn’t what the audience that feasts on divorce fantasy is hungry for. If women wanted to fantasize about being a lesbian, this year’s Ghostbusters reboot would have been a smash hit. This reeks of failure, and like her “confession” a few years back that she has a pathologically slutty past won’t bring her back into the celebrity status EPL provided for so many years. It has novelty value, but nothing beyond that. Her story is a fantasy morphed into cautionary tale.

  7. feeriker says:

    “I need to live my life in truth and transparency,”

    “Transparency.”

    Lizzy, I don’t think that word means what you think it means. You are indeed “transparent:” a transparent FRAUD. If that’s the legacy you want to leave, fine. Otherwise, you might want to select another term more descriptive of your true intentions. I recommend “attention-whoring.”

    “Truth?” You clearly are unfamiliar with the word as a matter of practice.

  8. Sexual fluidity, A.K.A. sexual selection convenience, puts the lie to the ‘born this way’ narrative.

    Not to worry though, the Feminine Imperative is nothing if not fluid in the way it reinvents itself and its rationales. No doubt Gilbert will be celebrated for her ‘bravery’ in finally coming to terms with her repressed homosexuality on her journey of self-discovery. And she’ll stick the landing by painting the bullseye around the arrow she shot.

    Her boring loyal husband is soooooooooooooo lucky! He should thank God everyday for removing this witch from his mist.

  10. The Question says:

    I cannot for the life of me think of male version to this story.
    Look at any masculine story that is sympathetic to the main male character. Honor and loyalty are always the top themes. If a man loses his honor, then the story is about him regaining it. It is not about his personal happiness.

    I can speculate as to why, but I wonder if this stems from fundamentally different priorities of the masculine and feminine.

    Agreed. Gilbert has jumped the shark with this latest escapade. Funny thing is, she could have clawed back some relevance by chilling down a bit and running a “this is how I keep my man” blog, a tamer version of $usan Wal$h. It wouldn’t have gotten her splash headlines, but it would have enabled her to bank some coin with book tours and so forth.

    No chance of that now. She can get a couple of interviews on Ellen or Oprah and that’s it. I doubt she’s even got a chance of a Lifetime movie, because lesbianism is passe’, what appears to be the next hot thing is AF-BC where the high powered YouGoGurrl carousel rider marries the nice but boring Beta fellow, falls in wuv with the exciting Alpha at her work, gets pregnant and then the boring Beta raises the child of ambiguous parentage.

    Gilber has zero chance of that. She’s past her stale-date. I guess we are supposed to pity her at this point, but I don’t see how someone who has left that much wreckage of other people’s lives in her uncaring, self-centered wake is all that pitiable.

I haven’t worked out all the details yet.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha.
    This is TOO funny for words.

    I described this pathetic book ‘Eat Pray Love’ as ‘fiction non-fiction’ to anyone who cared to listen.

    The real story was how she contrived the idea for this book, and then got a big advance from her publisher to go ‘act it out’.

    Now she is getting a divorce, and turning to lesbianism.

    Kind of puts her EPL book on the raging dumpster fire of literary failures.

    @Rollo
    Why should we be so sure that this stated lesbian status is a sure thing any more than anything else she’s ever said? Who didn’t show any such tendencies when she was a “seduction addict.”
    Some fluidity, as they say, is acknowledged in the literature. Men in prison who “turn” gay while inside, then revert back to straight once outside, for example. Or where a group of men is otherwise isolated from the opposite sex (for religious, physical or whatever reasons, i.e., a long expedition).
    Something like that may be the case here. Remember that at her age, there are no acceptable men, the ones who are her age and miraculously undamaged can do a lot better than her. So she might as well be marooned on an island, paint a face on the soccer ball and tell us all to say hello to her little friend.

    Up next: when she fails at being a lesbian, she’ll announce that she’s gone into Mary Kay LeTourneau mode and is now a paedophile. Odds are that it will be on its way to being legalized by then anyway.

    I’ll wager the next step is a child (adopted, IVF, something) for her and her new paramour.
    She’ll then claim she has “never been happier” and that is “what she wanted all along it just wasn’t the right time until now”.

  26. Lyn87 says:

    The story-behind-the-fiction that ALWAYS accompanies these “real life” mommy porn books are never what any young woman actually wants her life to look like. They may want AF/BB, but…

    Be a carousel rider when you’re young and attractive – Marry a good guy when “The Wall” looms – Have 2.4 kids and live in the ‘burbs – Dump your husband and go abroad in a desperate attempt to recapture your youth – Marry an old, fat, poor, short, bald guy who just wants a Green Card – Have a terrible relationship that ends in yet another divorce – Turn lesbo with a friend who’s in the final stage of a terminal disease – (probably) fade into obscurity with nobody giving a crap if you live or die because you burned every bridge there is.

    Her story isn’t really all that different than the story of many women, except that she got rich-‘n-famous and came out as a lesbian. But is it really all that different even in that way? Most women who ditch their husbands also end up with an income stream (from their ex-husbands rather than from book royalties), and – like her – their chances of sticking the landing with a better guy are virtually nonexistent once the dust settles.

    If young women would see how these things really turn out when they’re contemplating pulling the trigger on their own marriages, they might realize that the Knight in Shining Armor in their imagination is a major step down from the flesh-and-blood man they’re giving up. Who really wants to end up with estranged children and a houseful of cats, drinking wine from a box while they binge on Netflix? But rather than tell them the truth about the end-game, feminists concoct pretty lies like EPL and Fireproof to downplay the dangers and make them feel “empowered.”

  27. I would just say that when you have an estimated net worth of US$25 million plus, then you can pretty much do whatever you like. Stick the landing for a gold medal and public adoration and attention, or fail the landing with a compound fracture of your femur while people point and laugh.
    No problem at all either way for Ms. Gilbert.
    It also gives her free license to easily say things like “I don’t need anyone else’s approval” after acting like a capricious jerk over many years and then generally leaving a perpetual tire fire behind every place or person you visit.
    Because she doesn’t.
    There really is no such thing as bad publicity.
    Ask Hulk Hogan.

    Now if I were Ms. Elias, I might want to buy some insurance.

    Rollo: It’s not just the Feminine Imperative that is ‘fluid’, it’s the very women themselves. Women are fluid. There’s nothing solid about them. Sure, they can and do pretend, act, make-believe as it suits them. For example, they can charm a man, when charming the man will achieve their underlying agenda. But it’s all an act. And the main agenda is to extract resources from the man, and men in general, whether that be money, sex, sperm, children, attention of any kind, his superior mental abilities, or any other of the man’s assets. And a man has plenty of assets, whether he realises it or not. Women themselves are indeed fluid.

    Hehe. That would be miraculous.
    But I don’t think it is as easy as it sounds to transition into a man. Men have it harder; those who transition into men will be expected to prove they are men at every turn. No privilege class here.
    One man, a thoroughly confused man, first tried to become a woman. When he failed at that, he decided to become a man once again. I think his name was Alexis Arquette or something. He died an ignoble death from (probably) AIDS.

    DEAR DEIDRE I had sex with eight lads on girls’ holiday and caught an STI… and now I’m terrified I’ve given it to my boyfriend

    When one of the guys came on to me the first evening, I was having such a good time I hardly gave my boyfriend a second thought… I did feel guilty the next day but it soon wore off. The same thing happened the rest of the holiday. By the time we were ready to go home, I’d had sex with eight different men.

    I started to worry when I developed symptoms. I saw my GP who referred me to a clinic.They confirmed I had an STI… I’ve had sex with my boyfriend so there is a risk he could be infected too. I don’t know how to tell him. I regret everything that happened. I love my boyfriend so much. I’m sure he will go mad and won’t forgive me. I don’t want him to leave me because I gave him an STI.

    1) I hardly gave my boyfriend a second thought…
    2) I love my boyfriend so much.

    How can those two thoughts exist in the same mind at the same time?

  33. Deaths_Writer says:

    Why doesn’t she give up.

    Whoa. You almost can’t make this up.

    The only missing piece is for her to lose her entire net worth to a Nigerian romance scan (to a male persona, of course, despite the claims that she is now a lesbian).

    The Nigerians aren’t smart enough to identify high-value targets with precision, otherwise Gilbert would already have been defrauded.

  35. REASON says:

    @ Otto Lamp

    very simple.
    the boyfriend is “loved” because he provides something she needs when she is around him
    when he is not around to provide that. He is completely irrelevant….

  36. Snowy says:

    Otto Lamp: “How can those two thoughts exist in the same mind at the same time?”

    How? A black hole of selfishness (me! me! me!). Women think they’re smart, but they really are too stupid (selfish) for words. She hardly gave her boyfriend a second thought on God-knows how many occasions, with 8 different men. She most likely didn’t use condoms, though she may have, because some STIs can still be contracted while using condoms. She continued to still give her boyfriend no second thought because when she returned she had sex with him and has likely passed on the infection to him (me! me! me!). She’s likely too stupid (selfish) to tell her boyfriend she has probably passed on an infection to him because she fears the probable consequence that he will leave her (me! me! me!). She’s likely too stupid (selfish) to realise that if she doesn’t come clean (pun intended) with the boyfriend, and she stays with him, they will just continue to reinfect each other, with him possibly remaining asymptotic and thus oblivious (me! me! me!).
    It’s all about her. This is women. This is reality. AWALT.

    I love my boyfriend so much.

    Hamsterlation: “I got used, abused, pumped, and dumped like the cheap, stupid slut that I am and now I have no one else in the world to turn to but this chump boyfriend of mine. I can’t afford to lose him now!”

    I’m sure he will go mad and won’t forgive me.

    While I want to say “fucking straight he won’t forgive you!”, I can’t honestly say that with certainty. Just by reading what you’ve written, it’s pretty obvious that you’ve always been an irresponsible, self-centered whore that no quality man would give the time of day to. This boyfriend of yours must be a thirsty loser seriously lacking in self-respect, so it’s very possible that he might just be desperate and stupid enough to forgive you after he visits the STD clinic. Fortunately for sluts like you, the world is still full of such.

    I don’t want him to leave me because I gave him an STI.

    Hamsterlation: “I deserve to be not only kicked to the curb, but treated like a leper for being so selfish, stupid, immature, and irresponsible. If that happens I’ll be on my own and will have to live like a responsible adult. I CANNOT let that happen! There’s gotta be some way I can hang on to this chump until I don’t need him anymore.”

    Stupid bint. I’d like to say that I hope that whatever she caught is both really nasty AND incurable, except that I still have sufficient sympathy for the cucked BF that I don’t want to see him suffer that kind punishment for her slutty recklessness.

    Some male equivalents to this kind of depraved burnout actually recover. I still get a kick out of Vanilla Ice becoming a real estate author and developer after a suicide attempt. He’s still kicking around the fast lane according to Wikipedia and, sadly, got the VAWA treatment in 2008. Never heard of a woman coming to her senses, though.

  40. Anon says:

    Most people, even some who are on to how much of a fraud the FI is, don’t realize how hard the pump is working…

    US Taxes are already too high. Yet…..

    The National Debt has grown by $10T in just the last decade. From $9T to $19T, in the last 10 years alone.

    That means Federal spending in excess of taxes collected was $10T from 2006-present. Again, taxes are already too high, yet this is spending in excess of taxes.

    Since most government spending is for women at the expense of men, and this represents only the most excessive froth of spending (again, merely what is in excess of already high taxes), this shows you how hard the pump is working.

    For the next fiscal year (10/1/16 to 9/30/17), taxes collected will be $3.6T, and spending will be $4.2T. So $600B of spending in excess of taxes.

    Without female suffrage, it is conceivable that taxes and spending are just $2T each (putting aside the fact that GDP itself would be larger under such lower taxation).

    Instead, the next 12 months will take in $3.6T of Federal Taxes and see $4.2T of spending. The amount spent on each woman’s FI fantasy is so much higher than what they themselves could produce in the free market (i.e. no make-work jobs for women), that future historians will see this as insane.

  41. DeNihilist says:

    feeriker, it would be hilarious if it was the BF who all along had gotten the STD while she was away and is just waiting to see if she will accept the blame!

  42. Anon says:

    Following up on my comment above, note that millions of ’empowered’ women would see a catastrophic plunge in their status and sense of security of government spending fell by just 10%.

    We haven’t had a recession in 8 years, and the stock market was pumped up on the back of QE. As taxes have gotten more ‘progressive’, the correlation between tax receipts and the stock market is now tighter than before. Even a 20% stock market correction (which has not been seen in 8 years) would be brutal to the fiscal balance, much more so than in 2007-08.

    The pump is really, really running at an extremely vigorous pace. No one (least of all the women themselves) realize how many layers upon layers of artificial platforms they are presently standing on.

    Add to that the fact that if a woman is even just 30 now, a two-year recession would use up two precious years of her remaining SMV. If she 32 by the time things start improving again, her marriage window, while still someone alive now, will be permanently gone just on the other side of the recession.

    Only if he is not a mangina. If he is an apolitcal, moral, blue-pill guy, then he deserves some sympathy (but not unlimited sympathy, as red-pill content has been on the Internet for quite a while now).

    But if he is even a moderately committed mangina, then he fully deserves the worst. Remember that this problem only goes away through the outright eradication of manginas. A mangina getting such a disease should be seen as nature correcting aberrations in the natural order.

    So any sympathy should be highly provisional on whether he is truly a naive innocent with good morals vs. a mangina.

  45. Snowy says:

    Anon, I don’t really follow what you’re saying. My mind equates Blue Pill with Mangina. I was once Blue Pill, so I was once a Mangina. Perhaps I’m wrong. Perhaps I’m misunderstanding the concepts. Perhaps you’d care to explain? Personally, I have some sympathy for the BF regardless. He’s a man.

    I once had a brief dalliance with a Scottish girl who had been married to a Greek man. The first time we were getting it on, she said to me, “Make sure you wear protection, because I don’t want to catch anything from you.” It was the pot calling the kettle black; cheeky bitch. I was, and always have been, completely clean. I was horny, so later on I went to go down on her, but my sensitive nose noticed it was quite stinky the closer I got down there, so I pulled back. At the same time, she said to me, “Don’t go down on me, I’ve had Hepatitis B.” That is, she was a Hepatitis B carrier. I had already rooted her, with condoms on of course. But in her eyes, too bad for me that she had given me no choice to reject her based on the information she had withheld from me. She just wanted to fuck, and she was going to get it, regardless that it is the right thing to advise the partner of the risks. She wasn’t going to risk me deciding to not fuck her. I would not have fucked her had she told me beforehand. I wanted to fuck too of course, but I would not have fucked her had she told me beforehand. Even though with condoms on it is a small risk with Hepatitis B, it is still a risk I would not have taken. I say condoms because I always double one over another, since having single condoms break many years ago.

    Interesting, huh? If I hadn’t gone to go down on her, she never would have told me she had had Hepatitis B. Who knows what else she might have had? This is women for you.

    Needless to say, I promptly kicked her to the curb. But not before getting the best tit-fuck/hand-job combination I’ve ever had, in the swimming pool. She had great tits: big, firm, full, and milky-white.

    Snowy,

    My mind equates Blue Pill with Mangina. I was once Blue Pill, so I was once a Mangina.

    It is true that it is harder and harder to be blue-pill without being a mangina. Red-pill memes pop up frequently enough that a blue-pill person is now challenged in a way that did not happen before.

    But almost all of us were blue-pill in our youth, even if we were not manginas. In the old days, almost ALL men were blue-pill, as there was no penalty for that (women were married off in Marriage 1.0, and no one knew or needed to know what women were really attracted to, since centuries-refined customs managed that well enough to exempt the masses from learning about it).

    But it is possible to be blue-pill without being a mangina, albeit less so as each day passes and the truth becomes harder to ignore.

    I see what you mean. Thanks for that. I don’t think I’m confused about it, but to clarify my thinking with your new information, can I then accurately say that people like Dalrock (for example) are basically living a Blue Pill life but with Red Pill awareness, and Dalrock (for example) is not a Mangina because he is Red Pill aware, even though he is living a Blue Pill life?

  50. Anon says:

    No, no, no.

    Blue-pill vs. red-pill is an outlook dependent on whether a man knows the real truth about women or not. Whether a man is married or single has nothing to do with it (but it does govern the quantity and quality of sexual/romantic action he gets, in either case).

    Come on, this is the first time I have seen someone have this much difficulty with the concept of a man being blue-pill vs. red-pill.

    “Come on, this is the first time I have seen someone have this much difficulty with the concept of a man being blue-pill vs. red-pill.”

    I’m not sure why you’re having a go at me. I’m just trying to understand what you’re saying. I said that my mind equates Blue Pill with Mangina. You are saying that one can be Blue Pill without being a Mangina. How so?

    I’m not having difficulty with the concept of a man being Blue Pill vs. Red Pill, I’m having trouble with the concept of a man being Blue Pill while not being a Mangina.

    A female PhD candidate says that science is “sexist” because women and minorities are not good at logic: http://thefederalist.com/2016/09/29/feminist-phd-candidate-science-sexist-not-subjective/

    “language used in the syllabi reflects institutionalized STEM teaching practices and views about knowledge that are inherently discriminatory to women and minorities by promoting a view of knowledge as static and unchanging, a view of teaching that promotes the idea of a passive student, and by promoting a chilly climate that marginalizes women.”

    … Parson writes, they [STEM programs] display prejudice against women and minorities because they refuse to entertain the possibility that “scientific knowledge is subjective.”

    … Parson assumes and asserts that women and minorities are uniquely challenged by the idea that science can provide objective information about the natural world. This is an unfair assumption, she says, because the concept of objectivity is too hard for women and minorities to understand. “[N]otions of absolute truth and a single reality” are “masculine,” she says, referring to poststructuralist feminist theory.

    “Instead of promoting the idea that knowledge is constructed by the student and dynamic, subject to change as it would in a more feminist view of knowledge, the syllabi reinforce the larger male-dominant view of knowledge as one that students acquire and use make the correct decision.”

    @Anon: “So any sympathy should be highly provisional on whether he is truly a naive innocent with good morals vs. a mangina.”

    I thought the same thing. Along with feeriker, I have some natural sympathy for a dupe; but at the same time, it doesn’t seem too likely that the party girl had a completely unforeseen, massive character change on holiday. I suppose it could happen, but more likely (given her own commentary) she has, and had, plenty of slut tells beforehand.

    @Snowy: “So, how is it possible to be Blue Pill without being a Mangina?”

    I’m still learning the nuances, but I think the blue pill is merely a lack of awareness of the full spectrum and impact of the feminine imperative. Most guys started out this way, as Anon indicates, because it was a normal, invisible part of life. He just accepted it without much thought, since it was all around him all the time. Once he gains some red pill awareness, he rebels.

    If I’m getting it right, a mangina on the other hand often does have some awareness of the FI, and has bought into it. He is actively feminizing himself to align with the basic premise of women become more man-like, men become more woman-like.

    The first guy is ignorant. The second guy is a traitor to God, nature, and humanity.

    As someone who studies and teaches philosophy of science, this idea is nothing new in the field. Many feminist philosophers have been seeking a more “female” friendly version of science, such as Sandra Harding. She was a main target of the “Sokal Hoax” that satired feminist/post-modern thought.

  61. PuffyJacket says:

    @Anon

    You can add to the “pump” the fact that interest rates are near zero this late (7-8 years) into the economic cycle.

    Remember when Greenspan kept interest rates too low, too long in the mid-00’s, precipitating the events that led to the unfolding of the housing crisis and worst recession in 20+ years? Well, here we are this late into the “recovery” and interest rates are STILL zero. The “pump” is truly operating at eleven right now.

    Perhaps a deflationary wave + recession (that central banks will be powerless to fight) is all it takes to bring this “mother” to the ground.

    Not nearly as large as the “growing worldwide movement of men who regret becoming husbands,” which is itself dwarfed by the “growing worldwide movement of men who refuse to ever become husbands.”

    Incidentally, can you imagine your mother telling you that she regrets ever having had you? More than a few sons who were told this by their mothers wound up becoming inductees into the “Serial Killer Hall of Fame” (although only one of them that I’m aware of [Edmund Kemper] ever responded by taking his mother out of the picture).

    “So, how is it possible to be Blue Pill without being a Mangina?”

    Don’t underestimate how complete a Matrix we live in. I remember all the Churchians telling me one thing about women while the Bible said the exact opposite. The Bible was the better authority but at the same time, all clergy everywhere surely wouldn’t independently tell me the exact same lie? That situation left me confused and basically operating on my own, and the EAPs overplayed the Madonna/Whore act on me so badly that to this day, I’m half convinced women are incapable of enjoying sex.

  65. Anon says:

    Lost Patrol,

    The first guy is ignorant. The second guy is a traitor to God, nature, and humanity.

    Yes.

    The first group is shrinking, as it is harder to ignore red-pill alternative ideas, meaning one has to make effort to remain blue-pill, which starts the slippery slope of being a mangina.

    A mangina deserves everything bad that can happen to him, feminism-wise. This includes a false rape accusation, etc. This system would not exist without their enthusiastic hard work, so deserve to receive the worst of it.

    This is particularly interesting. Love the “priest” look, btw, with her neo-feminist butch dyke hairdo and her thick-frame hipster glasses.

    Then again, for Canada’s largest Protestant denomination, perhaps atheism is the greatest “protest” of all. “For some,” wrote Rev. Cantwell, having an atheist minister “is simply a natural extension of our commitment to be an open, inclusive, and questioning church,” adding that “diversity in our church has been and will continue to be a source of strength.”

    That sort of diversity is akin to having representatives of the furrier trade running PETA, or having Nazis running a Jewish day school.

    Diversity only works society-wide. It is right to question the motives of someone who is seeking a leadership position within an ingroup who she overtly opposes in word and deed.

    @DrTorch: This article is not at all surprising. If your goal in life is to be “happy,” circumstances requiring commitment and selflessness (in action, if not in heart) are going to disappoint you. (Of course, since our ultimate purpose in life is NOT to be happy, it’s a self-defeating goal anyway; also, none of these women seem to have heard of “opportunity cost.” Can’t have it all, toots.) It’s not as socially accepted to walk away from children as it is to walk away from one’s spouse, but the misguided thinking behind both kinds of abandonment is similar. And now we see in this article that our selfish feelings should be accepted, maybe even celebrated.

    @Scott: Loved the chanted liturgy in your blog post.

    As has often been pointed out here, economics is NOT women’s forté, to put it kindly.

    Just stand by for a few years longer. That’ll change. Any society that murders children in the womb surely has no qualms about abandoning them while they’re alive.

    And now we see in this article that our selfish feelings should be accepted, maybe even celebrated.

    These are the three subjects where women have zero aptitude/interest.

    Any society that murders children in the womb surely has no qualms about abandoning them while they’re alive.

    As always, cuckservatives will be the staunches proponents of it. Since child-support (which cuckservatives love) is well past the ‘blood from a stone’ point, the next logical extension is for unrelated men to get socked with a CS judgement on imputed income under penalty of imprisonment just for being connected to some single mother on Facebook.

  72. feeriker says:

    The article on the atheist “pastor” begins with these words: “Progressive Christian churches…”

    There ain’t no such thing. I refuse to read any further, as the fact that somebody with a PhD (I don’t care in what it is) would be reckless enough to use that phrase seriously simply undermines whatever credibility the rest of his article might have contained.

    The fact that this ridiculous issue is even being seriously debated shows just how far gone things are and juvenile are the participants.

  73. feeriker says:

    Add all of the hard sciences (physics, chemistry, engineering, etc.) to that list.

    Sure, there is the occasional token female who essays competence in one of the disciplines, but I have yet to see an instance where any of them have contributed any noteworthy, let alone exceptional, accomplishments.

  74. Anon says:

    I thought about that, but while female talent in hard science and engineering is rare, it is not completely zero like in the fields I listed. About 5-10% of the people who do useful work in chemistry and engineering are in fact women (usually Asian women).

    Let me put it this way, the following fields are listed by the percentage of female underperformance relative to male standards :

    Literature : 10%
    Law : 25-70% (varies greatly by type of law practiced)
    Biology/Medicine : 30%
    History/Geography : 40%
    Chemistry, non-calculus Engineering : 50%
    Physics, calculus-using fields of Engineering : 70-80%
    Economics, Astronomy : 99-100%

    Name me a serious female philosopher (before the mid-20th century, when philosophy was watered down to contain a sufficient amount of nonsense to allow women to spew feminism under its awnings).

    Note that even in the case of gifted, numerate females, a quick glance at their bio suggests they’d rather be doing something else. The great Emmy Noether was barren and somewhat sickly, and in her memoirs she pines for having a normal life of a woman.

    I love your choice of the word “hobby” rather than “profession” (and much appreciate your not using the word “calling”).

    I doubt that this woman could find a “profession” in anything that she has any aptitude for. That’s why she’s an atheist pretending to be a Christian pastor. If she had any talent, charisma, or ability she would have already established the closest thing to a “church” that atheism would tolerate and would have it filled with devoted followers. That would certainly be the honest thing to do.

    It does.

    The tendency among women in the law is to go into areas where they can become “gurus” — so think regulatory advisers, tax experts, labor experts, that kind of thing. Take an area of expertise, learn the crap out of it, and become a valued advisor in it.

    They are less common in two areas: business lawyering (folks who negotiate big deals) and high-stakes litigation on the front end (i.e., face to the people). Plenty of women work in litigation on the back end, doing research and briefs and strategy and so on, but far fewer on the front end of things, as a percentage of the total, than there are as regulatory or other gurus. There are exceptions — I’ve met more than a few quite competent female business lawyers and front end litigators, but the trends are nevertheless quite noticeable if you spend some time in the profession.

    That is why women tend to be slightly more competent in software engineering, chemical engineering, etc. vs. engineering fields high in calculus. Nothing wrong with that, but it does confirm the pattern described above.

    Calculus is not the only thing women are untalented at. They are bad at any and all types of economics, Austrian or otherwise. The reasons for this have been elaborated on at great length here, in the past.
