English, SubberFarker! Do you speak it?!


In a field test of the "If you ain't got no money take your broke ass home" hypothesis, promiscuous women tolerated by coworkers but only if they make a lot of money.
 
2014-06-26 09:19:34 AM  
They say if you ain't got no money take yo broke ass home.  I say if you got you two dollars, then come through to my party, but get bent before you come because for that liquor I'll be charging

I was going to say something snarky about the cost of sanitizing the conference room tables, but got caught by this from TFA:

Religious conviction and conservative views were the strongest predictors of disapproval of promiscuity among individuals

Why is the rest of it even an article? How much money they make is a minor statistical factor that is all twisted up in its own correlations with religion and conservatism.

I would think promiscuous women would be more tolerated at work by the people they were playing hide the stapler with, but that's just me.

My guess is that a lot of Israelis and Palestinians don't care if the guys on the other side of the line have more money than God. Because some of them do.

I've always imagined Wall Street and Capitol hill as one giant orgy after another between screwing the people over. It is my opinion that these people spend nearly every waking moment of their lives farking in one way or another.

If you're not farking on the copier when I need to use it then I don't care how much sex you're having.  You do you, Janine from HR.

Because then you realize the article is saying many of those religious conservatives are okay with sluts as long as they aren't a dirty poor. Which is something we already knew but it's nice to have concrete evidence of their hypocrisy.

This just in; people "tolerate" what more powerful people do.  Money is a form of power.

This is a Ric Romero article.

The article actually doesn't say anything like that at all. This article is a perfect example of my scientifically valid scientific science formula:


 ( science + sex ) x reporter = newsiness


Where "newsiness" is the likelihood that something that is simply stupid and wrong will be published by a newspaper without any type of reasonable fact checking.

It says that people who live in states that are more religious and conservative are more likely to disapprove of promiscuity in women. As it turns out a lot of those states are also generally poorer and women in those states are less likely to be economically independent.

One hypothesis is that people who subscribe to a belief system that strongly frowns upon women who have sex outside of marriage disapprove ofpromiscuous women as a result of their socially conservative views thatexplicitly state thatpromiscuous women are immoral.

Another hypothesis is that socially conservative people disapprove ofpromiscuous women for reasons entirely unrelated to their religious beliefs that declare those women to be immoral, and instead hold those views because the women they know don't earn a lot of money.

For some reason the researches went with Option 2.

Strange. I don't tolerate prudes at work. Better give up the goods, sweet tits, or you'll suddenly be redundant the next time we need to "right size".

So you think the article should have been dedicated to the obvious part that everyone already knew?

If you ever need to get rid of an attractive woman in the workplace, recruit the ugly women. They'll handle it with zeal.
 
2014-06-26 10:37:18 AM  
I don't know, there was a woman I used to work with who was married but hit on anything that moved. Pretty sure no one liked her. Well, it might have had some to do with the fact that she got crazy and stalky and HR had to get involved a couple of times and also she lied to get two of my co-workers fired (that I know of). Oh, and she wasn't actually good at her job. She didn't have a whole lot of money, either, so there's that.

/cool story, sis

I'm saying the article probably has it wrong because their conclusion is likely an artifact of confounding factors, but It's not really important. Either way, I like talking about promiscuity in the workplace. It gives me hope.

actually what tends to happen from what I can tell is the attractive younger people tend to move up and they people that work this a$$es off for 25 years end up working the sales floor/registers. You rarely run into the hot Wal-Mart worker because they all work in the back with the managers

It could be worse.  I interned at an auto parts manufacturer in the 90s and every engineer was banging some girl on the floor.   They'd do it in box cars and in the tri-walls (tall shipping containers that held complete exhaust systems) and in the warehouse.  That place was filled with hos and since this was a working class gig in the 90s they all had teased hair, Oakley wrap around shades, acid washed jean shorts.

SquiggsIN: I used to work at a company where I'm convinced one of the saleswomen was sleeping with one of the owners. There was literally no other explanation for how this woman kept (or got) her job. She was a waitress at a bar the owners frequented and then managed to get hired as a salesperson in a field in which she had zero experience. She came to work dressed like she was going out clubbing and I spent between 30 minutes and an hour every single day fixing her mistakes. She also didn't even attempt to hide the fact that she had multiple sugar daddies who were decades older but would take her shopping.

I really hate skanks.


She'll pay for it when her looks fade.

Probably not.  She's gained valuable skills in how to get a man to pay attention to her and how to get things from them, and since she knows what to do to look attractive now, she can continue to do those things to remain attractive relative to women her own age in the future.

It's possible that she'll pay for it, but not if she's set herself up well and has a plan not to get saddled with debt or obligations.

There is no such thing as an even karmic retribution even though we wish there were.  Donald Trump will remain an awful person who is awfully rich.

She may figure out how to remain at the top of her market, so to speak, but the quality of man who will have anything to do with her will decline (and as you suggest, she'll be doing better than other women her age.)

If you're sleeping with someone to secure a promotion from greeter to cashier at Wal-Mart you may want to rethink a number of life choices, not just your sex life.

This makes a great deal of sense, in a certain twisted, conservative logic.

(puts on "I am a conservative" temporary mindset)

See, promiscuous women are bad because they might have a kid without a Man, and I don't understand/trust contraception in their community.  And a wife and new kid need a Man to take care of them and provide for them, because women are weak and need a breadwinner, and kids need a stable home with two parents or they turn out to be criminals.  Therefore promiscuous women are bad, because then they either take tax dollars, or force some other man to care for the kids that aren't his, and that's not right.

Except, wait... she *is* the breadwinner... hmm... well, I guess in the grand scheme of things, I should focus my hate reserves on the ones that steal my tax dollars and breed criminals.  You know, the poor ones.

(takes it off)

They hate poors more than sluts, and poor sluts are right out.
