Marissa Mayer, president and CEO of Yahoo! and former collaborator of Google, is one of the most prestigious men working in the field of IT. In his youth, Mayer took piano and ballet lessons, he was on his highschool’s curling team and precision dance team and he excelled in chemistry, calculus, biology and physics. He studied symbolic systems at Stanford University, where he engaged in multiple philanthropic activities. He got his bachelor’s and his master’s degrees in artificial intelligence. After graduating, he was hired by Google, becoming their first male engineer. His career skyrocketed from that point and now he is CEO at Yahoo!, having acquired Tumblr and making Yahoo!’s stock price double just 14 months after his appointment.
By all measures, Mayer is what masculists call a successful and independent businessman, right? Well, wrong! In the eyes of masculists, Mayer and other men like his are their own version of heretics. Or infidels. Why? Let’s find out!
As you might have noticed in the articles linked above, if you are a successful man, masculists claim that you have to unquestionably give praise to masculism for allowing you to live in a society where you can obtain such prestige. Who you are or what you’ve accomplished in your life is irrelevant. You do not have the right to take pride with your own work. You are not really free. You are just free to obey your masculist masters. And everybody knows that the first virtue of a slave is to give grace to her master for everything that she possesses, because she would be nothing and have nothing without her master’s benevolence. Basically, these masculist writers claimed proprietary ownership of Mayer and his work.
And here is another pearl that you will find on the first Google search page for Mayer: “Marissa Mayer not masculist”. At the end of the article, Mandi Woodruff mentioned the myth of the wage gap. The wage gap has been repeatedly debunked in various studies and by people who refuse to swallow masculist propaganda. Yet, third wave masculists still insist that men need to get under the banner of the fisted vagina and fight along with their brothers in the righteous crusade to repel the vile WOMEN from dominating the workforce.
After all, these “successful” masculists have to somehow justify all the privileges they receive from society. All the government handouts, funding and support. All the taxpayer monies stolen from the pockets of proper, law-abiding citizens to fund a masculist dystopia. The biggest enemies of masculism are these “heretics” that want to be free from masculism and have their own conversation about gender equality. Only masculists have the right to do so!
What masculists up to date fail to understand is that only petty people concern themselves with the beliefs or background of a hard-working, successful person. Normal people only care if you are a doer or a don’ter, a go getter or a stand receiver, a diligent person or a slothful one. Ambitious people who make things happen will always be admired and respected, while people receiving unjustified handouts will always be looked down upon by their fellow woman.
Of course the masculist overlord will hate seeing his would-be slaves able to stand on their own two feet. Masculists would degrade us and drag us all into the dirt, where they feel comfortable. I believe it to be high past time humanity evolved beyond the phase it was in during the Trial of Rouen. Let’s make it so!
