Feminists Furious as More Men Adopt the Mike Pence Rule

No man in business or academia with an ounce of common sense is going to let himself be alone with a woman who isn’t his wife in the current social climate. A single allegation of inappropriate behavior — whether legitimate or not — can and will destroy a man’s career. This is the climate Feminists have created as their movement morphed from demands for social equality into a litigious Cult of Man-Hatred and quest for political power.

Now, they’re angry (who am I kidding, feminists are always angry about everything and always lecturing men on how to behave) because men are unwilling to set themselves up as victims.

The New York Times reports that men are responding to the Cautionary Tale of Harvey Weinstein and others like it by avoiding their female colleagues, particularly those in a subordinate position. Instead of thinking about the discriminatory practices that allow Weinsteins to grow like persistent fungus, they’re making them an even bigger feature of the workplace. Men fear being accused of sexual harassment, because it would ruin their lives.

Boo freaking hoo. You know what else doesn’t leave you? Being held back in your career because your manager is too scared to make eye contact with you because he’s afraid you’re gonna tell some story about how he harassed you. Or he might feel compelled to grab your boobies, and then he’d lose his job! You did this, Woman.

Yes, actually, you did. It’s not the cautionary tale of Harvey Weinstein men are responding to; it’s the word-of-mouth and internet-shared anecdotes of what men are experiencing in the real-world; stories the media won’t cover because they don’t fit the Narrative.  Everybody knows someone who was accused of something by a female co-worker or colleague.

Let’s face it; for some women, falsely accusing men of bad behavior is a resume enhancer. If it weren’t for false accusations, Mattress Girl would be doing her bondage act in a seedy strip club instead of a Fancy Pants Art Museum.

Update: Heh

  1. If I ever reentered corporate life, I’d definitely adopt the Pence Rule. Its just not worth it. As a gay man, I’d even be inclined to extent that to younger male coworkers and clients. Corporate HR departments are even worse than in Academia.

    I try to always have the Contractor present when I visit a new client the first few times, just to be on the safe side, …or always present at meetings. And any business “cultivation” of clients is now a total minefield.

    At my last corporate stint 20 years ago, we retrofitted windows in every private office to the hallways, and all the conference rooms were converted to glass walls. I never drove alone anywhere with a female colleague, and if a group the ladies sat in the back seat and I sat in front, or vice versa where possible.

    It’s killing mentoring, and has totally poisoned professional collegiality in my profession, …but then everything these days is separate, “equal”, and the lowest possible common denominator.

  2. And why am I looking at a “Naked Princess” lingerie ad with a scantily-clad nubile sitting suggestively on a bed?? Really??

    I know its not GP’s fault, its just the Media and feminist hypocrisy…
    I feel the same about the dammed Draft Kings gambling site ribbon that befouls my screen when I visit GP every time

  3. What’s really going on here: the feminazis are having a hissy fit that men have figured out and started short-circuiting their blackmail scheme.

    They’re already furious because Betsy DeVos had the good sense to realize that imbecile Obama weaponized Title IX and took that away from them. And now, with Harvey Weinstein revealing that the feminazi leaders like Hillary!, Kamala Harris, Lieawatha Warren, Jessica Valenti and Meryl Streep were more than happy to let Democrat males rape and pillage their way through fields of young women as long as they made regular contributions to Our Lady of Vivesection, the whole narrative of “sisterhood” is falling apart.

    Once young women realize that in Democrats’ eyes, they are the Handmaidens who are supposed to obey the Wives’ orders and let themselves be raped by the Commanders of the Faith, then the next pillar of Democrat support collapses.

    And now the left says anyone who supports the quaint notion of “Innocent until proven guilty” is pro-rape.

  5. The women of London complained for years that pigs on the Underground were staring at them and making them feel dirty.

    Now, a new study shows London men ages 16-30 would rather meet their mates at a pub for a pint, join at a mate’s place for video games and the retire to their own bed chambers for a good p0rn wank instead of dating women. This is their preferred Friday and Saturday night activity.

    The response of the women of London : complaining that men don’t look at them or want to date them.

    I make all new females housing tenants aware that I have a husband. I also never let a repair person in the apartment alone with a female tenant even if the tenant says it is okay. We have been landlords since 1990, more and more contractors and repair guys are refusing to go into a unit if a female tenant is alone in the unit. Good thing we have the flexibility to be there.

    So, women make emotional virtue signals to each other and then complain bitterly when males respond rationally to their behavior. In other words, women are women.

  7. The title of her piece is incredibly ironic – “missing the point” indeed.

  8. Just observing the practical and almost 70 yr old wisdom of Billy. He never could have forseen the instant we-driven rumor mill of today, but the South had the “court gossip” down pat from Colonial Europe. The reality is that Character Matters, and it profits you little to bow to the PC – when it only gives them ammo to shoot you down. I suspect many of the unusual political and career changes are due to blackmail and other forms of leverage gained in social situations. And Billy showed that it works, wheras many others in the Church and the State have proven that ignoring it can be fatal. Billy didn’t pull this out of his hat, he had a 2000yr better guide.
    For a better layout of rule 2, see http://www.crivoice.org/appearance.html

    For a secular followup on #2, it was and is common to see chaperones, assistants, secretaries, Girl/Guy Fridays, and protegees being brought to meetings and social events, not only to increase the stature of the primary – not only to train future leaders, but to observe, record, and remind the primary of details and decorum. Kings and Queens almost always had functionaries around, dances had moderators, Japanese have sempai/kohei, and smart businessmen at least have a legal guide with them. It isn’t sexist, rather it enhances the respect if both parties have a second. It levels the playing field where charm and talent have to be used with restraint and decorum.

    The Boy Scouts and many other groups have found that the 4 rules of The “Modesto Manifesto” are crucial to keeping their group alive. I would love to see the day when they are used to save our country in politics, business and church.

    Billy Graham saw his less-discussed rules, accompanied by the oft-reported on rule centered around sexual immorality, as a way to address common problems of personal and ministerial integrity.

    1. Operate with financial transparency

    2. Avoid even the appearance of sexual immorality

    3. Avoid criticizing other pastors and churches

    4. Be painstakingly honest in all publicity

  9. In the land of Political Correctness, it is always best to assume that you are being watched and that you are most vulnerable in any situation in which it will be your word against “their” word.

    You only need to read the fulminations of CrayCray on St. Anita Hill to know that your reputation is fragile and in the hands of others.

    When irresolvable “he said/she said” (or permutations thereof) come into play, most often both actors lose, because both actors have become hot potatoes.

    Every soap opera comes down to that plot.

    I fondly recall one manipulative cohort who branded me “treacherous” because I wouldn’t play his games of politics and smear. I was branded “aloof” and “not a team player.” Not a bad reputation to have when the sharks are biting each other.

  10. The same thing affects the interaction of men and children.

    Countless kids used to benefit from the mentoring and companionship of men in the neighborhood (I remember one man, a noted metallurgist, that got me interested in ham radio and helped my get my license).

    Now, any man with a brain won’t get within 20 feet of a child without witnesses.

    “Advocates” and “activists” have poisoned our society. They’ve turned efforts to eliminate loathsome but rare behavior into a political witch hunt. The damage is incalculable.

    One thing about leftists: they never look back. Once they’ve destroyed something, they move one – nary a look back at the smoldering wreckage left in their wake.

  11. KCRob, after 7000 hours of volunteer work, I stopped just after a fellow volunteer got raked over the coals by a false allegation from a very disturbed young male. The quickness of how the organization we volunteered for abandoned my friend made almost all of the males stop volunteering. When people ask me about it, I tell them to stay away. Sad but it is reality.

  12. Evan Rachel Wood speaks up.

    She explains why she hasn’t named her abuser. She also pointed out how this shouldn’t be politicised on either side. She says a lot of important stuff. Worth a listen.

    Jimmy, feel free to post on it. It could instigate a healthy conversation here.

    Watch the whole thing.

    Comment by CrayCrayPatriot — October 13, 2017 @ 5:38 pm - October 13, 2017

  13. Wood actually addresses a lot of things, like why she still works in the industry, as well as how it’s important to seek some kind of balance in the system so this doesn’t become a witch-hunt against innocent men.

    Emma Thompson also spoke out in an extremely articulate way.

    Worth a watch too.

  14. Oh look CCP is getting all smitten by the same people who built the system of Hollywood Perversion. Their paychecks need the CCP’s of the world.

    Of course a Progressive would say this doesn’t have political lines.

    Of course. It’s only OK to “politicize” events when it hurts Republicans.

  16. I have avoided volunteering wherever there are children present in over 30 years, …especially small children. It’s just too fraught with peril, and the adults in charge crazy and irrational.

    Comment by Ted B. (Charging Rhino) — October 13, 2017 @ 9:12 pm - October 13, 2017

  17. “so this doesn’t become a witch-hunt against innocent men.”

    Will that include college campuses?

    I guess someone didn’t see the Progressive outrage when Trump brought back sanity to the college campus assault system.

    Hollywood, innocent until proven guilty(but not held accountable).
    College campus, guilty until, well forever.
    This is the Progressive Utopia

  19. When the infection control nurse was going around looking for “mentors for at risk youth” most tried to avoid her but I just said “I can’t I am gay” that only made her want to put a kid on my lap even more. When she said she could get me gay kids, I said “that might work, a lot of gays don’t know how to defend themselves & my cousin teaches the Eddie the Eagle NRA gun classes for kids”. She ran away faster than you could say small minded bigot.

  20. It’s a wonder that exec’s don’t have cameras covering the front of their desk to the door like people in diverse areas are buying dash cams to have video evidence of traffic accidents

  21. Harvey Weinstein would like this…

    Comment by BB-Idaho — October 14, 2017 @ 5:47 pm - October 14, 2017

  22. Feminists loved Weinstein 2 weeks ago because of his support for left wing causes. They still love Clinton and Kennedy and all the rest of the women abusing left wing politicians. Feminists are the misogynists.

  23. I’ve survived several accusations. Followed the advice in SJWs Always Lie before it was published.

    Never admit, never agree that it might have been a misunderstanding, never apologize for something you didn’t do.
