Relative Personal Value [Loser Society]

Your relative incompetence doesn’t make me a better person.

I’ve become bored of people trying to take credit for other people’s achievements and attempting to apply other people’s success to their personal resumes.

Here’s how things work in a Meritocracy… The better people get the better stuff. The worse people get the worse stuff.

Period. Continue reading “Relative Personal Value [Loser Society]”

Lack of Experience [Loser Society]

The only way you can know where you stand is to compete against the best.

Proverbs 27:17 says “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

A lot of people have no idea who they are because they don’t have enough life experience to have figured out who they are. Continue reading “Lack of Experience [Loser Society]”

Psychological Safety

I’m not offering you psychological safety. I’m offering you acceptance for your stupidity.

Inc.com just published an article about Google studying successful team traits. What they came up with was:

1. Dependability
2. Structure and clarity
3. Meaning
4. Impact
5. Psychological Safety

The first four are clear, but I found #5 interesting:

We’ve all been in meetings and, due to the fear of seeming incompetent, have held back questions or ideas. I get it. It’s unnerving to feel like you’re in an environment where everything you do or say is under a microscope.

But imagine a different setting. A situation in which everyone is safe to take risks, voice their opinions, and ask judgment-free questions. A culture where managers provide air cover and create safe zones so employees can let down their guard. That’s psychological safety.

I know, not the quantitative data that you were hoping for. However, Google found that teams with psychologically safe environments had employees who were less likely to leave, more likely to harness the power of diversity, and ultimately, who were more successful.

Obviously, I’m not Google, and I don’t give a flying **** about team-building.

However.. I’m not offering you psychological safety. I’m offering you acceptance for your stupidity. Continue reading “Psychological Safety”

Games Without Frontiers

Nobody intentionally procreates with someone dumber than they are.

Let’s talk about reality for a second, here. 😀

There’s this article entitled “Childish men are to blame for women having kids late in life”.

This is dumb right off the bat.

Right from the title, it doesn’t make any sense.

It’s similar to mothers who blame their extremely young kids when they freak out and scream at them.

If you can’t outwit a baby, the problem is with *YOU*, not the baby.

I’ve seen chicks in the street screaming at kids strapped into strollers.

I’ve wanted to ask them “Are you crazy? o_O”

Except I knew they were crazy because they were screaming at the top of their lungs at a baby that doesn’t even understand English, so I kep’ it movin’. Continue reading “Games Without Frontiers”

re: Women’s Orgasms Functioning as a Masculinity Achievement for Men [Part 02]

All I can tell you is that women are disinterested in sex with people they don’t feel like having sex with. Other than that, it’s off to the races.

[Continued from Part 01]

Sexual scripts are internalized cultural guidelines that influence how people interpret, understand, and behave in sexual contexts.

They are notably gendered: Men are expected to express masculinity through sexual assertiveness, control, high sexual desire, and a high number of sexual partners, while women are expected to display femininity through sexual restraint and limitations on sexual access (Gagnon & Simon, 1973; Weiderman, 2005).

Typically, sexual scripts have ignored the role of women’s pleasure, as women are portrayed as uninterested in sex (Wiederman, 2005).

wait wait wait. 😀 We’re going way off the rails, here.

As we discussed in Part 01, “scripts” are irrelevant if nobody follows them. Continue reading “re: Women’s Orgasms Functioning as a Masculinity Achievement for Men [Part 02]”
