  1. I have to imagine that what will happen is that STEM spots in universities will grow. There will be hard tracks and easy tracks and a disproportionate number of women will end up in the easy tracks.

    Then when it comes to the work force a lot of women will drop out to be moms, and others will be in STEM-related jobs that don’t require huge technical expertise. Maybe marketing, project management.

    • > easy track for women

      “Physics for Women” courses?!

      It *would* be the perfect spoof… Put up fake flyers for it all over campus, with pro-affirmative action doublespeak, etc. Watch half the people take it seriously, and then be unable to figure out whether it’s a good thing or an insult.

      They did invent “physics for poets” classes back in the 1970’s, but poets are such an invisible and meek ultra-minority there were no protests, and one could almost see the need for such a thing. “Poetry for physicists” classes were too tit-for-tatty to make more than a minor splash.

      Anyway, they already only require physics with algebra (HS physics, basically) for most degrees in health care – nursing, physical therapy, etc. – so there already is an easy track, and it leads OUT of the STEM areas at issue and under attack, not into them.

      If they want to give women something useful to do in STEM, they should train them to be competent lab assistants and technical document writer uppers – who make a good sandwitch and cup of coffee. (Oh please, not Project Manager.) Asign one to each (male) STEMer, and three times as much real productive shovel-ready work would get done immediately.

        That’s the problem these days; women are now too high-faluting to ackhowledge a subordinate role. In practical terms that means they get to drink coffee and boss you around while you carry out the lowly tasks of designing and getting things working.

    • That isn’t what happened when Title IX was applied to sports. Men’s sports were killed to make room for female sports.

      Then when it comes to the work force a lot of women will drop out to be moms, and others will be in STEM-related jobs that don’t require huge technical expertise. Maybe marketing, project management.

      This is what we have now without the women majoring in STEM fields in college. Obviously, this isn’t good enough for the feminists, or we wouldn’t be hearing about Title IX for STEM now. Marketing and project management even if it is in a STEM business is not considered a STEM job. STEM businesses hire women for those jobs now to avoid false discrimination lawsuits. This hasn’t satisfied the feminists because nothing outside of killing at least 90% of the male population will satisfy them.

      • Yea I’m happy as shit that my birthplace is Europe and I grew up in north America. Having 2 passports one eu and one north American let’s me stay in a grey area. Right now Europe is better so of my finance business gets the screws turned on it with my 2 staff I’d just pack up back to Italy and start over. Strange times haha.

  2. Luddites rule.Now and after the grid goes down.
    Is not the net borderless?
    Why can’t you send your work by electron rather than physically move?

    • Why can’t you send your work by electron rather than physically move?

      In principle, yes, I can do that, and I might end up doing that. Moving to another country isn’t a trivial exercise. If I have to leave the US, then it is guaranteed that a place like Canada isn’t an option. Plus, when Title IX for STEM fails and wrecks the economy, the next step will be to pass a law that says that any foreign business working with an American one must follow the same Title IX. That might not wreck me if I only deal with non-American businesses by that point, but that would be a disaster for the US economy.

      The real problem is that this threatens to wreck the world economy. Despite the lowered costs and lack of feminism from off-shoring, there is a reason why lots of STEM work is still done in the US. It’s because there isn’t a truly compelling alternative location. If there was almost all STEM work would have left for it already. (This isn’t a problem just for STEM work. There is a reason why groups like The Seasteading Institute want to build artificial cities on the ocean instead of doing the simpler thing of moving to another country.) It’s very possible that instead of Asia benefiting from America’s loss, no one will benefit at all. We could end up with a situation where technological development and its associated economic growth might just be killed instead of moved.

  3. BP,

    Title IX doesn’t have to happen to put you out of business; just giving preference to female owned computer firms would have the same effect; work you would have gotten will instead go to a female computer firm. If the gov’t and private firms (mainly gov’t contractors) won’t give you any work because you have a penis, does this not have the same effect?

    MarkyMark

    • Yes, that is another possibility. I’m too small to deal with the paperwork for being a direct government contractor. What happens in these cases now is that either the business is in the founder’s wife’s name or a female owned business will take the government contract and act as a broker for businesses like mine that do actual work and add say a 10% fee. If the government forces giving preference to female owned businesses throughout the entire chain then the woman owned businesses acting as brokers would also fail because they wouldn’t be able to contract with a business that can actually get the work done.

      This is another example of how all this feminism wrecks the economy.

  4. It is already happening – if you have contracts with the government they have quotas you have to meet – although they aren’t phrased that way. My way around them is I have three businesses in the US, all minority or woman owned – at least on paper. It’s all legit – I pay lawyers a lot for it to be that way. I do it that way since you can hire a female vet (at least they had the courage to fight for the nation) – get double stickers for her “owning” the business – and you are given a pass on a lot of things since it looks like it’s a woman who owns things. Rinse and repeat…

    Used to be that men would put businesses in their wives names – can’t do that anymore, it doesn’t’ count if you’re married to her anymore. But you can set it up so that, on paper, they own it, but they have no power to do anything, or screw it up. Of course the idea is to sell it, and they get a nice chunk of change for being a woman – and keeping their mouth shut, and you get more for being smart enough to use them and win the game using their rules against them.

    I gave up on the US long ago – it’s heading toward being a Third World nation – and a bankrupt one at that… I can’t change that, but what I can do is set myself up to not be effected by it, which is what I’m doing at the moment. I have four businesses off shore to keep the money from ever being in the US – you make more that way. But this country is a basket case – up till O-idiot taking office I still had hope things could be turned around – another 5 Trillion in the hole for NOTHING and the writing is already on the tombstone – people are just too stupid to see it…

    So, I’m funneling more and more assets off-shore – all loses come from my US businesses, so I have basically zero income after all salaries and stuff – and pay zero taxes, and all profits are made and stay out of the US. It’s owned by a company, so it’s all on the up-and-up… When this country goes belly-up, I’ll be out of here in another country… Too many liberal idiots in charge and not enough people who have actually ever DONE ANYTHING…

    (Of course, I’m not dumb enough to post this from an IP address or anything that can be traced to me… Since speaking the truth will get you thrown into jail these days… )

  5. Just saying has it right. Just structure your business so that it complies. Unlike, say, a marriage contract, a business contract with a woman has teeth, she breaks that and shes going to be held accountable in court. a REAL court 😉

    My sister fell into an interesting situation out of school. She did a stem field as well, ( Meh competant, she just followed the money ) and got a job right out of school. Most of her male classmates were struggling to find full time work so they went to a contracting situation like yours.

    Thing is, they still couldnt get the work they wanted because they “didnt employ enough women” in thier business. So These guys contacted my sister and she now sits on the “board” of 7 private contracting firms. they are now “50%” female staffed and they get work regularly. She collects something like 3% of each contract as payment and has to attend AT MOST an extra 20 meeting a month. All legal, all properly filed, and everything is in compliance as far as the beauro-rats are concerned.

    Hell, an entrepenurial type would look at this kind of law as an opportunity to find young women willing to “sit on the board” of a dozen different companies for a small annual stipend in order to allow other companies to come into compliance on these laws.

    • That still requires you to trust a woman, and that’s why it wouldn’t work. The only woman I would trust having that much control over my business MIGHT be my mom.

      • she has no control. its a paper fiction, but with consequences spelled out in contract for screwing it up.

        and that should read 2 meetings, not 20 🙂
