We Demand An Unconditional Surrender From Men!

... at least that's what I think when I read the stats about women being the majority of college students, receiving the majority of degrees and now this.

What's the end game? Apparently this isn't enough because I've yet to hear peace terms laid out by feminists. Attacks on masculinity and the "patriarchy" continue apace. The only thing I can think is that they won't rest until men have been utterly defeated and are forced into unconditional surrender.

Still, I look forward to the day when the feminists demand equality in jobs like these.

  • Sheet Metal Workers (97.4% men)
  • Brickmasons (99.3% men)
  • Roofers (99.4% men)
  • Mining Machine Operators (98.9% men)
  • Ground Maintenance Workers (94.1% men)

Did you look at the table that he links to, though? Sure, "Management, Professional, and Related Occupations" as a class has a bare majority (51%) female. But, in the breakdown below, we find that this majority is only reached by including in the category the fields where there are more than about 60% women, which are things like:

Public Relations
Human Resources
Education (including K-12 teachers, special education, and librarians)
Paralegals and Legal Assistants
Physical Therapists
Social Workers
Claims Adjusters
Meeting/Event Planners
Nursing and Home Health Care
Massage Therapists
. . . (etc.)

well, I think you get the picture. He says "Professonal and Managerial" specifically to make us think of doctors and CEOs, but this table looks to me to include pretty much everybody who doesn't work in agriculture, or in an hourly manufacturing or retail position.

So did the women choose those careers or were they forced into them by the patriarchy?

Could be either, or a mix, but that wasn't the point I was trying to make.

My point is, Jordan Peterson was claiming that the statistics showed that women held a majority of "Professional and Managerial" positions to make us think that they were taking over the highest-paid, highest-status jobs in society. But then it turns out that he only got that number by including a whole raft of relatively low-paid, low-status positions. I was objecting to his egregious misuse of statistics, claiming that they showed something that they did not actually show at all.
