However, before you start planning out long watching sessions with white people you should be aware of exactly why white people get so excited about the World Cup.
March 22, Don't Hate Her Because She's Successful the first thing you noticed is her great outfit and the first thing I noticed is she's covering her wedding ring this is why you are anxious and I am Alone Today in the United States and the developed world, women are better off than ever before.
But the blunt truth is that men still run the world It is time for us to face the fact that our revolution has stalled. A truly equal world would be one where women ran half of our countries and companies and men ran half of our homes.
The laws of economics and many studies of diversity tell us that if we tapped the entire pool of human resources and talent, our performance would improve. Sheryl Sandberg is the future ex-COO of Facebook, and while that sounds like enough of a resume to speak on women in the workplace, note that her advice on how to get ahead appears in Time Magazine.
Oh, you thought that Sandberg's book is news worthy in itself, how could you not do a story on this magnificence? No, this is a setup, the Time Magazine demo is never going to be COO of anything, as evidenced by the fact that they read Time Magazine.
Much more importantly, they are not raising daughters who are going to be COO of anything. So why is this here? The first level breakdown is that this is what Time readers want, they want a warm glow and to be reassured that the reason they're stuck living in Central Time is sexism.
This demo likes to see a smart, pretty woman succeed in a man's world, as long as "pretty" isn't too pretty but "wearing a great outfit" and that man's world isn't overly manly, like IBM or General Dynamics, yawn, but an aspirational, Aeron chair "creative" place that doesn't involve calculus or yelling, somewhere they suspect they could have worked had it not been for sexism and biological clocks.
We all know Pinterest is for idiots. If you are still suspicious that Sandberg's appearance in Time has nothing to do with her book or with women becoming COOs but is about something else, look through the newsstand for the other magazine in which Sandberg is prominently featured: Well, you can't, not with those priorities.
Each of those may be desirable, but when placed together as an equation it is revealed to be nothing but outward branding, and the consequence is that even if you get all three you will still be unsatisfied. For the past two weeks Sandberg was anywhere nothing useful is happening, and I'm going to include Facebook in that.
Some cry-baby over at Jezebel was thrilled that Sandberg was featured all week on Access Hollywood, holy Christ, she thought this was a good thing. The fact that feminism is in the mainstream means that it doesn't exist, it is no longer real, in the same way that when you hear "gun control debate" it's a lie and "fiscal cliff" is an easy to market, safe distraction from the structural problems that can never be named, here's one: But keep this in mind every time you hear how great it is Bill Gates is curing malaria after leaving us all with Windows.
You might ask, well, how do we get women who read Cosmo and Jezebel to aspire to something greater? Your question is illogical.
It's not because Cosmo and Jezebel attract dumb women, no, not exactly, it's that they teach their readers to want certain things over other things. They teach them how to want. Then who can unbrainwash them? The person that should have was their mother, and they read Time.
But other than getting them to buy magazines, why bother with making women feel good about themselves?
Are they going to riot because men won't let them be COOs? Placating the TV demographic whose only act of political violence was to Like the Kony video hardly seems urgently necessary. It's not to make them feel good, and it certainly isn't to inspire them to become COOs. It is what we drunks call "unconscious" and Sandberg herself is not aware of it.
Don't equate what Sandberg wants with what the system wants to use her for.
If they did not overlap, you would never know the name Sheryl Sandberg; or, said the other, more scary way, the only reason you know the name of Sheryl Sandberg is because it represents a defense against change.
