I’ve been employed in numerous jobs during my lifetime, including working for major corporations and teaching in public schools. And not once was a woman paid less for doing the same job. In fact, in the one corporation I worked for, women were more likely to be promoted than men, especially women of color, who also happened to be lesbians:

Facts Supplanted by Propaganda Wherever We Look

August 09, 2017 “Information Clearing House” – Russia is under economic and propaganda attack from the US. Additionally, the US is surrounding Russia and China with military and missile bases, leading both countries to the conclusion that Washington is preparing a surprise nuclear attack. Despite the high level of threat that Washington represents to the two nuclear powers, the English language Russian press can still find time to alert us to the increasing persecution of male Americans in behalf of feminist myths.

RT reports on a memo sent by a male engineer within Google. The memo committed the impermissible offense of challenging the feminist allegation that women are paid less than men in science and technology because of male discrimination against women. The engineer expressed a cogent argument, once understood as the obvious truth, that, despite sexism and all that, there are “differences in distributions of traits between men and women.” He lists male traits and female traits and nowhere says female traits are less important, only that they lie in different areas. https://www.rt.com/usa/398766-google-memo-viral-women/

The engineer says that truth about male/female differences can no longer be uttered, because of “our shaming culture” that feminists and Identity Politics have created. We are obliged to ignore all factual evidence, because the evidence does not support the ideology.

The engineer, so far undiscovered and not yet fired, was denounced by Google’s new vice president for Diversity, Integrity and Governance, Danielle Brown—a woman of course—for advancing “incorect assumptions about gender.” There is no known scientific evidence attesting to the incorrectness of the engineer’s exposition, and even if there were there is nothing unusual about Americans having incorrect opinions. What Danielle Brown means is that what we all know to be true is inconsistent with the feminist ideology and therefore impermissible.

The unasked and unanswered question remains. How does a culture, or merely ordinary competence, survive when propaganda is elevated over fact?
