i.e. a massive hypocrite.

Yes, every Christian and every conservative is a hypocrite. It's impossible to live up to our own rules, that's why we're always trying and failing. You are not a hypocrite, however, because you'd have to have standards in order to violate standards. A pig who thinks rolling in shit is just swell is hardly hypocritical when rolling around in shit, is he?

I actually know the bible reasonably well, well enough to know that your allegedly religiously derived rules are nothing of the sort. No, instead you have a bunch of extra-biblical philosophy and selectively cherry pick bits of the bible to support it all the while ignoring the bits of the bible that don't support it and in fact say the opposite.

Yeah, you have it backwards. Catholicism is a philosophy. The Bible is a liturgical tool we compiled to help with our teachings some 400 years after Christ, but it is not the religion itself. This is why protestants are so fucked up. Physics books are written by physicists who understand physics. You then have people who read the physics book and think memorizing it means you understand physics. Wrong. You just know how to recite a book, but not what it means.

Apart from a desire for oppression and a return to glory days of the 1950s where everyone except people like you were repressed, you mean.

Well here we 60-odd years later and everybody's still pretty damn oppressed aren't they? Blacks are burning down the cities, 25% of the women are getting raped on campuses or whatever (which are not exactly bastions of right-wing trad Catholic indoctrination are they?). Seems to me whatever the progressive social movement was trying to do failed miserably. Keep digging that hole though. I'm sure it'll all work out any time now.

I didn't say I think it's okay, I said the girls think it's okay.* We know this because the determining factor in whether a guy is "creepy" or "hot" when coming on to a girl is not the manner of the approach but the attractiveness/social status of the man.

Fat nerd: "Oh hello m'lady, I would very much like to buy you dinner and get to know you better, if that would be all right with you." Polite! Nice! Creepy. Reported to HR.

6'2" Tom Brady looking motherfucker with money and a nice car: "I'm gonna buy you some furniture and then fuck your brains out on it." Bizarre! Awful! Hot. Gets laid. "Teehee he's so aggressive I just love it!"

Now morally I don't agree with any of this casual sex hook-up crap and I think it's ruining civilization turning the women into trash objects and the men into either vapid playboys or bitter loners and now 70% of men 20-35 are unmarried. Kind of disastrous for the next generation. But this is how women behave. It's called "hypergamy." Eggs are expensive, sperm is cheap, don't waste expensive eggs on low-quality sperm.

When I was younger I was selectively famous in a niche artistic circle. People knew who I was. I'd go to a convention and girls way out of my league would want to climb me like a tree. Just because I had a little bit more social status. Go back home and go to a club where I was just another guy and not a second look. That's just how humans are wired. This is why 80% of the women on Tinder are only fucking 20% of the guys.

* I went and read your article and it says basically the same thing I did: whether something is creepy or hot is determined by the boundary set by the woman. However women set very different boundaries for rich hot guys than for fat nerds. The moral of the story is "don't be a fat nerd."

And this makes it OK to harass and coerce women into sex... how?

I never said it was okay. My point was that he was so pathetic his girlfriend was out banging other guys, and then so hard-up he thinks it's a good idea to go begging subordinates to do his girlfriend's job. I'm just laughing at the entire situation.

That's a good point. I am not doing anything in the bedroom that will get our city firebombed, so you can rest assured.

Then again I recall Jerry Falwell saying that Hurricane Katrina was God's justice on New Orleans for the gays. But since the flooding mostly skipped the gay district, it seems to have been God's justice on the gay-adjacent. I guess we need more data points to figure out who exactly God is hating these days.

All I'm saying is the sea of degeneracy in which these people are wallowing which results in a man begging a strange woman for sex over email started long before "but he was her boss."

That was like 90% of the country at the time. The rest was unhappy because race not sex, but it's great how you try to conflate the "struggles" of white women, the most privileged creatures to ever walk the earth, with those of the 2nd and 3rd generation offspring of slaves.

You think this sort of behaviour happened before? Then, for the good of humanity, can you share the secret to faster-than-light travel because you clearly hail from a different planet.

No I'm saying we had many, many cultural mores to prevent this kind of shit from happening. Just off the top of my head we had:

1. Preferences against women (of any quality) in the workplace.
2. Preferences against casual intercourse.
3. Preferences against unmarried men and women being alone together.
4. Shame in being involved in a non-monogamous relationship.
5. Incredible shame in having people know about your involvement in an non-monogamous relationship.

Of the 5 rules I listed, are there any that you like or agree with? We have cultural rules like this in place because otherwise a not insignificant number of men will act like the man in the article. You knock out every cultural safeguard to prevent this kind of behavior and then you're shocked when this behavior occurs because the guy didn't care about the one rule you do care about.

Is there something special about the 1950s which makes them some sort of high point?

Men and women were happier then. That was before feminism ruined both and "freed" women from being chained to the stove so they could be chained to the call center desk instead.

As long as they are both OK with it, whats YOUR problem?

You're right about these desires being "natural." In Victorian England fucking around meant death by syphilis. Syphilis is natural, too, so what's your problem with it?!

My problem with this story is that it exists. Install social mores about how people have sex that, in addition to other benefits, prevent nice women from being propositioned disrespectfully. Remove social mores because "OH MY GOD WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM!?!" Be shocked when nice women are propositioned disrespectfully.

You not getting ANY?

I'm a traditionalist Catholic with a good job and a beautiful blonde wife who stays home, takes care of our kids, and cooks me amazing dinners. My sex life is none of your business.

Actually I blame feminism/leftism in general, which gave everyone involved the idea that any of this shit was okay and would not result in exactly these problems.

People are animals. So society invents moral codes and customs to tame their animal behavior, prevent conflict, and channel their bad impulses into productive activity. Then short-sighted idiots come along and say "ugh, this is terrible! How dare you tell me what to do I can do whatever I want!" Enough short-sighted idiots go along with this, people stop following the rules, and then start crying when human animals act like animals. "Why are people acting like this!" Because they're people. We had rules to stop this behavior from occurring but you didn't like them, so now you get shit behavior. Start following the rules designed to prevent shit behavior and the shit behavior will stop.

You also ought to get over your puritanical moralizing about monogamy. It's not for everyone.

By what right did you call the guy a scumbag? You ought to get over your puritanical moralizing about begging subordinates for sex. It's not for everyone.

I wish this story could be broadcast to the people of the 1950s. "A company is getting ruined because female engineers are getting harassed by a pervert? Okay, first off, what the fuck are 'female engineers?' We don't have enough male engineers? Why aren't they home taking care of their kids instead of slaving at some stupid company for perverts? They wouldn't be getting harassed then now would they? Okay, okay, so now about this pervert, why doesn't he just have his own woman? Wait he does? Okay so he's cheating on her why what a piece of...hold on an 'open relationship?' She's having sex with other men...and he knows about it...so now he's hitting on everything in a skirt...THIS IS WHY WE HAVE RULES GODDAMNIT!!!" and they'd kill every feminist on sight and we wouldn't have these problems.

Except the company president was the alpha. Company president. Has money. Is banging Hooters girls. Nobody's complaining about him.

In this story, though, it's our boy's wife who's got no problem finding fresh cocks to hop. He, however, seems to be begging every woman in sight...and failing. They only report to HR when it's Fred Armisen, not Tom Brady hitting on them.

Men value women differently than women value men. I saw something from Tinder that like 20% of the men on Tinder are hooking up with 80% of the women. And there was an OK Cupid study that when asked to rank women as above or below average, men ranked 50% of the women above average, and 50% of the women below average. The women ranked 80% of the men "below average." Hmmmm.
