NBC News Article Claims Power Damages Male Brains

NBC News has published an article titled 'Does Power Damage Male Brains?' The article was written by  feminist Lynn Stuart Parramore. She claims male brains become damaged when men obtain positions of authority.

 Parramore writes: 
"If you get the sense that your boss doesn’t really see you and read you accurately, you may be onto something. And it might be worse if your boss is a 'he'. Because some researchers now think that power may not affect men and women the same way. During his comments at Davos, Dacher Keltner (a male feminist from  University of California Berkeley) argued that power is particularly damaging to men:"
 "If I’m powerful and I’m a man, and I’m interacting with a woman who is less powerful, I’m just going to be feeling more sexually aroused. That’s well documented in a lot of studies. I’ll act on those impulses. I’ll be approaching their space, saying suggestive things, etc. Here comes the problem: I erroneously believe that the woman around me is attracted to me when in fact she’s feeling repulsed or anxious."
"Keltner points to increasing amounts of social science data that suggest women in leadership positions tend to be more collaborative and less prone to corruption and abuse."
In essence, the feminist is arguing male bosses should be replaced by women because female brains are less 'damaged' by power. Additionally, the feminist claims powerful women are more collaborative than powerful men. If this is true, then how come powerful women like NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and MO Senator Claire McCaskill are unwilling to collaborate with US Secretary of Education Betsy Devos about reforming sexual assault investigation procedures on college campuses nationwide? How come these powerful female Senators are refusing any collaboration or input from falsely accused male college students? If powerful women are collaborative then how come powerful female politicians from the Senate and House of Representatives always fight against paternity fraud legislation? What happened to their collaboration skills? Lastly, where is the alleged 'science data' showing women are more collaborative and less corrupt than men?  Parramore provides no links.

The idea female leaders are more collaborative is simply another feminist sexist statement.

Perramore continues:  
 "In the #MeToo movement, there are basically two power dynamics at play: those between employers and subordinates, and those between men and women. Imbalances create potential pitfalls in both cases. But part of #MeToo is about recognizing and speeding up shifts in the balance of power along with the expectations of who wields it — and how they are culturally and legally sanctioned to use it.
"#MeToo has illuminated the need for better protections for employees, more collaborative power models and greater representation of women in management and boards." 
In other words, Perramore wants decreasing numbers of male managers - due to their "damaged brains" - and increasing numbers of female bosses whom she claims are more suited to "collaborative power models" .

Perramore then states: 
"Checks and balances are required so that the less powerful have secure channels to voice concerns and a fair forum in which to be heard."
"One good sign is the first piece of proposed legislation to come out of #MeToo, a bipartisan bill which would help shift power away from management to those who report sexual harassment. The new law would end forced arbitration, a nasty bit of injustice written into the contracts of as many as 60 million Americans. It denies them due process if they are sexually harassed at the workplace."
These are ironic statements for a feminist. She claims she is concerned about 'due process' and a 'fair forum in which to be heard'. Yet, as discussed in a previous post, an array of  feminist groups and politicians stated they will fight against Betsy Devos's reforms giving male college students accused of sexual assault 'due process' and  a 'fair forum' where their defense can be heard.

Perramore concludes: 
"If we know that power distorts, then the solution is to rebalance it and try to ensure that people don't get to wield it unchecked. Shared models of power and consciously reorienting ourselves towards interactions that are more empathetic and mutual are the antidotes to dynamics that are abusive and coercive. Redefining masculinity is also part of the necessary shift. "
The feminist wants masculinity redefined. She wants men molded so that they are more pliable to her will. She wants to control men.

This NBC News article is more evidence that feminism IS sexism. The entire essay is laced with feminist gender stereotypes as well as the sexist claim women are better managers than men.

Like your blog says, "feminism is sexism against men"

The article you quote is sexist, and feminist.

Therefore, your blog is correct!

I hardly leave a response, but after reading a few of the responses on this page "NBC News Article Claims Power Damages Male Brains".
I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is
it only me or do some of the remarks come across like they
are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at other
places, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
Would you list of the complete urls of your social networking pages like your twitter
feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
