Nuturing Male Discrimination in the Workplace

The popular website TechCrunch recently promoted more male discrimination in the workplace with its article "No Boys Allowed, Women Innovate Mobile Accelerator Is Just For Women". The article advertised the formation of a new accelerator program called Women Innovate Mobile (WIM). This program was founded by three business women. Its purpose is to give women high salary jobs in technology.

WIM will start off small, offering two to five new mobile technology companies funding of $18,000, plus mentoring, support, and free office space in New York during the course of its initial program. However, a female must be the founder and in control of the new company. WIM has already attracted support from Bank of America and Forbes.

WIM’s Managing Director said females "remain severely underrepresented among mentor-driven accelerator programs. That’s why we developed an accelerator program just for women-led mobile ventures.” WIM claim's their program will provide another alternative to help the United States build companies and jobs. What she didn't mention is that the high paying jobs will be mainly for women.

The WIM representative also didn't mention that females are severely underrepresented as child support payers. However, no business women have formed a program to promote more women paying child support to their ex husbands.

The workplace discrimination policies of WIM are strikingly similar to the anti male student polices of America's corporate world. In the US, large corporations such as Walmart, Home Depot, Starbucks, Pfizer, Coldwell Banker, JP Morgan, Prudential and The General Electric Company donate hundreds of thousand of dollars every year to education grant programs with the stipulation the student cannot be male. This is one of the primary reasons why women outnumber men in higher education. Females students have more financial aid available to them. WIM's long range intention is to reproduce in the workplace the gender biased policies of American education.

WIM represents classic feminist double standard. Gender based programs designed to promote women into high paying jobs are considered good and even promoted by media outlets like TechCrunch. However, gender based programs designed to promote men into high paying fields, such as Nursing, are considered discriminatory. Additionally, gender based programs designed to help men gain equal access to higher education are considered illegal. Lastly, feminist have no programs designed to advance women into low paying, dirty jobs such as trash collector - despite the fact women are very underrepresented in this field.

Feminist strategy is to hand women more high paying "cushy" jobs. The low paying, dirty jobs shall remain mostly male.

Although WIM is only one small company, others will no doubt follow using the same female chauvinist (i.e. feminist) logic.

Feminists continuously form groups which emphasize gender as the primary determining factor for advancement.

Men also do the dangerous jobs - over 90% of workplace deaths and serious injuries are to men. Women aren't looking to change that - but they do complain that they aren't getting paid as much for working a safe job. Equal pay for equal work, indeed!
