Bitches be mean. Ladies be crying. Let’s give them MORE responsibility! Clearly, they can handle it.

Hey folks! Did you know that women make better decisions at work than men do? No, it’s true! Here’s the proof!

 

http://www.degroote.mcmaster.ca/articles/women-make-better-decisions-than-men/

 

Men, you see, tend to make decisions using stupid tools like rules, regulations and time-tested strategies. You know, logic and rationality. How dumb do you have to be to think that’s gonna work?

Ladies are all about cooperation, collaboration and consensus-building, which is really just another way of saying INCOMING! COVER YOUR ASS! SPREAD THE BLAME!

The whole study is a crock of shit, and you can read the details over at AVfM, if you like.

What I want to do today is link the idea that women are better decision makers, and deserve to have more responsibilities and greater power at work to this book by Meredith Fuller:

 

book

 

Honestly, her list falls a little short. Here’s a list of 90 different types of bitches, written by a third grader! It’s pretty hilarious.

Ok, so the shocking insight Meredith has to contribute to the public discourse is that some women are bitches!

 

judgybitchface

 

I might know one. Or two. Hell, I might even BE one!

 

Heh

 

Apparently, the prevalence of bitchiness is seriously impacting women’s work lives. Bitches being bitchy is knocking other women off their stilettos, affecting their confidence, competence and enjoyment of life.

Serious stuff.

 

bitch

 

I wrote my book for the thousands of women I have seen in my careers counselling practice, and consulting work in organizations. Hard working, earnest, committed, professional women were stunned, shamed, humiliated, or gobsmacked by the antics of some bitches at work. Usually, they hadn’t realised that their growing lack of confidence, questioning of their competence, and dread at the thought of getting out of bed each day to front up, was linked to this insidious, spiteful behaviour. They found it difficult to talk about – believing that they should be immune to snide comments, unaffected by someone else’s naughty behaviours, and not concerned by non-verbal nastiness. But it hurt.

 

Here’s an example of what Meredith is talking about:

 

haircut

 

Denise turned up at work with a new haircut. “My bitchy co worker looked me up and down, then said, lingeringly ‘oh…and are you, er, happy with your new, er…hair style?’ Or she’d start a conversation with, ‘oh, I really hate to have to tell you this, but…’ then launch into nastiness. I finally realised what she was up to, so I would respond with, ‘then don’t tell me’ and walk off quickly.”

Denise recognised that her professional skills had nothing to do with her hair, but she was about to present to the Board, and was flustered by the intent behind the comment.

 

Are you fucking kidding me? Comments about your hair? Comments about your hair fluster you? You want to take on combat roles, the leadership of nations, all the executive boards and corner offices of the Fortune 500 and you can’t deal with a comment about your hair?

 

Jesus.

 

I think we can give a shout out to Hilary here for not giving a fuck about her hair.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=NmTkWrPZU84

I’m undaunted in my quest to amuse myself by constantly changing my hair.

Hillary Clinton

True story: at Chez JB, hair is kind of an endlessly amusing topic. Mr. JB has incredibly thick, curly hair that is turning white (he mostly blames me for that). Not grey. White. He wears his hair like an old time movie star, slicked back in waves. He is very, very into his hair.

He looks remarkably like this guy, except his hair is a lot more white. He even has the beard at the moment. That will go when the weather warms up, but for now, this is pretty much him:

 

gil

 

His hair doesn’t cost a lot to maintain. He goes to an old school barber, and they have such a good relationship that Mr. JB will pop by EddieTheBarber’s house on a Sunday afternoon to watch the game. He pays $15 for a haircut and uses some special product that he only to replace once or twice a year, so it’s all pretty reasonable.

 

barber

 

But he DOES his hair every day. It has to be perfect or he won’t leave the house. Naturally, his friends and colleagues and clients and even his secretaries mock the shit out of him about his hair. We judge windspeed by whether or not his hair moved.

 

Generally, the answer is no.

 

And he tends to join in the fun, too. He uses “how’s my hair” as an ice-breaker, especially when he sees people checking it out.

 

Anyone seriously being bitchy about his hair would be met with nothing but scorn and a giant “fuck off”.

 

It’s hair. Get over it.

 

Now me, I’m the complete opposite. About four times a year, I go and have expensive highlights and lowlights put in my hair and I have a fancy cut and it costs $200 each time. I know. $800/year on my hair. Ridiculous. I also have expensive shampoos and conditioners and strengthening serums and a really fancy blow-dryer and straightening iron, and honestly, Mr. JB doesn’t begrudge me any of that. He likes my hair to look nice.

 

cowboy hat

 

The trouble is that I never do it. I spend all that money, and then I wear a slouchy hat pretty much every day in the winter and a ball cap or straw cowboy hat every day in the summer. The slouchy hat allows me to keep the heat down in the house in the winter, which saves money, which I then spend on my hair, which I keep under a hat….

 

LOGIC!

 

True story: my hairdryer recently died and had to be replaced. If you use a hairdryer every day, it will last somewhere between one and two years. If you use it less frequently, it will last longer.

 

Mine lasted 11 years.

 

Yep. That’s how much I use it. But I replaced it with this awesome John Frieda $200 one! That should last 30 years I figure. Also, I used Airmiles to get it. Not cash. Yes, I realize they are essentially the same thing, but it doesn’t feel that way.

 

More logic!

 

dryer

 

Obviously, I come in for a lot of hair mocking, too. I get a round of applause every time I come downstairs with wet hair that I have clearly just washed. The idea that I would somehow be flustered if an untoward comment was made about my hair just…. astonishes me.

 

And that’s kind of the point. I haven’t read the book about the Eight Types of Bitches yet, although I did order it from Amazon. I have a feeling it will be a gold mine. Meredith is publishing excerpts on Psychology Today, and without exception, what she cites as soul-crippling bitchiness that causes so-called strong, resilient, intelligent, confident, capable women to crumble is utter ridiculousness.

 

Leadership requires some pretty specific characteristics. You can google about a million sites on the net that will summarize the qualities of a leader, and you will almost certainly come across the same set of qualities over and over again:

 

sun

 

Let’s look at Sun Tzu, for example.

 

Intelligence

Credibility

Humaneness

Courage

Discipline

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Tzu

 

Basically, you need to be smart and very good at what you do. You need to show respect for others, while still taking bold risks and you need strength of character and the will to persevere in the face of obstacles, whatever they may be.

 

If you can’t deal with a comment about your hair, or a secretary who is just plain fucking rude and incompetent, you are never going to lead anything other than a charge to the pharmacy to renew your prescription for Prozac.

 

prozac

 

More from Meredith:

 

Another woman was stunned when her admin assistant wasn’t happy about typing up client data bases.

“When I enquired how she was going, she said ‘I refuse to do this shit.’ Whatever I delegated wasn’t good enough, and it became a battle to get the work done. One day she was late back from lunch by two hours. I called on her mobile, and she said that her car had broken down. I asked when she would be back, and she yelled ‘when I want to get there!’ She decided that she would go shopping while waiting for the RACV. I was concerned and suggested she needed to return to the office as soon as possible. Could she get a bus or tram? You see, this happened every week. She would disappear for four or five hours and blame everyone else but herself. The other days of the week she tried to have her lunch break at 4pm, so she could go to the gym. I explained we needed her until 5pm, and she had to take a lunch break at lunchtime when someone else could mind the phones. She kept calling me a bitch because I prevented her from exercising. She also handled the petty cash and I queried why she was taking money to pay for her coffees. She insisted that her old boss let her do it, so I was a bitch for raising it. “

 

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/working-btches/201303/who-are-the-hardest-women-work

 

You know how you deal with the above situation?

 

fired

 

Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

 

I really can’t wait to get this book and read it and take apart all the examples of crippling bitchiness that ladies simply can’t deal with. So far, they can’t handle comments about their hair and they have no idea how to discipline a secretary. Sounds promising. Let’s put them in charge of the CIA. What could possibly go wrong?

 

You know who does show leadership abilities? The ones who can identify weak spots and address them? The ones who are capable of making decisions and soldiering on in the face of adversity and hostility?

 

The bitches.

 

miranda

 

It’s no real mystery why women who are at the top of the corporate ladder are stigmatized as bitches. They are. But bitchiness will only get you so far. There are very few men who will crumple if you make a bitchy comment about their hair. You can take out the layer of weak, fragile, pathetic ladies, but after that, you’re playing hardball.

 

If the top is what you’re after, go for it. Be as bitchy as you like on your way up. But once you’re there, the game will change. Men play rough. And for keeps.

 

Whatever you do, don’t throw like a girl.

 

throw

 

Lots of love,

 

JB

    I honestly don’t get the hair stuff. You see it in social networking all the time. Do men prefer blondes or brunettes? Do men like redheads? Seriously do they think that we care nothing about personality, its merely the shade of hairdye that is chosen? Not that I’m currently the dating sort (way too risky a game for my taste) but if I was of that mindset a decent personality with green hair would trump a bad personality in any other colour.

    Only a partial answer, for a fuller account I recommend Steve Moxon’s ‘The Woman Racket’ (terrible title, great book). Women ascend the female dominance hierarchy (‘DH’) through being more attractive. Attractiveness plays little or no part in men’s DH, which is based on powwer (or its modern proxy, money). Which may possibly explain why gerzillionaire Bernie Ecclestone’s wife was a foot taller and 20 years younger than him. Thankfully their daughters took after her physically, and not him haha.

    To make themselves “in demand” and get as much attention as possible.

    Women with great personalities are a treasure. They can light up a man’s world – but it takes time to show your personality and you can usually only show it to a couple men at a time. By then, the male object of your affections may have walked off looking for some other visual stimuli.

    Men are visual creatures – and to maximize appeal to a maximum # of men (and the limited # of desirable men in that group) the factor of attractiveness is key.

    Actually, the basic grooming that men do to appear decent is all the effort women have to put into their looks as well to look presentable. In fact – less! Afterall, women don’t have to shave their faces on a daily basis. Well, neither do men, but a lot, probably most, in this culture do.

    At least two showers daily, morning and night minimum, more if you can. Regular hair shampoo, like once a week. Daily combing or brushing hair. Brushing teeth at least twice daily. And that’s all women really need to look and smell good.

    Chemical skin products like creams and lotions are not needed when organic fruit and veggie oils are available and good for your skin.

    Makeup is not needed if you take good care of your skin. And if your skin is bad, you really DO NOT want to be wearing makeup because it will make it worse.

    Hair has a huge influence on a woman’s appearance. That includes style, color, everything. Dark hair makes blue eyes striking, but can be too harsh. Blonde shades can be brilliant or dull and wash out the face. Red can complement coloring or clash worse than a hillbilly at a fashion show.

That’s what female leadership looks like. Want to know why the vast majority of women didn’t vore for her for president? Because they knew better than anyone that they want someone in office who can be held accountable. Of course that isn’t turning out so well with the current commander in chief, because apparently minorities are above accountability as well.

    Actual female leadership may be better evidenced by Angela Merkel. Unlike Clinton she’d proven her intelligence before ascending to leadership (Merkel was a chemist before being a politician); she’s stoic, as male leaders are expected to be, and though not universally popular, she’s lasted 8 years as chancellor of the largest (and, at the moment, least economically imperiled) country in Europe.

    Women like Clinton or Julia Gillard would do well to look to Merkel or Thatcher to understand the demeanor an actual female leader should take. Incidentally, successful female leaders generally act the same way as successful male leaders.

    Yeah I usually just want to fight them. No really. What pisses me off most about civilian life is that you can’t fight your bitchy co-workers. When I was in the Navy on an all male ship, if two guys had a problem they’d just go down to a giant fan room and fight it out. Win, lose, or draw they’d be cool with each other after that.

    Usually they’d both keep their mouths shut, and nothing would happen to either of them. Every now and then someone would go to Non-judicial punishment. If that happened they’d get busted down a rank, get extra duty, and lose half a months pay. A tap on the wrist compared to the civilian world. If you get into a fist fight with one of your co-workers as a civilian you spend some time in jail, and have a criminal record that follows you around for the rest of your life. Good luck finding a job after that.

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think people should be able to go around punching each other with impunity. But you shouldn’t have a scarlet letter pinned to your chest for the rest of your life; just because you get in a fist fight with some jackass. Especially if both people agreed to fight.

    Not to sound critical of this naval custom, but if it’s a real problem, then fighting won’t likely solve it; and if two people fist-fighting each other solves the problem, then probably wasn’t really a problem (or was a pretty stupid problem) to begin with.

    I can’t exactly relate, as I’ve never been in a physical fight in my life, and have never had a reason to be. I think this is a good thing. I can’t say any of the fistfights I’ve seen break out were ever over what I’d call a good reason.

    I’d be more concerned with people’s verbal sensitivity. What do you do if you can’t criticize a co-worker’s work without riskin them filing a complaint for some kind of discrimination. Affirmative action policies disproportionately allow underqualifed women into jobs, and as a result they (being disproportionately underqualified) may be subject to more criticism that male workers, which leads to the perception of discrimintion, which leads to lawsuits. I am of the opinion that in a civilized work environment people should be able to criticize each other without having to worry about a complaint or reprimand (or a fistfight) ensuing.

You would believe some of the stupid emails I get from feminists.. But the worst of these people are (to use JB’s memorable phrase, which I’ve yet to tire of) ‘batshit crazy’ male feminists.

    Onwards and upwards!

    realityforever, feel free to call me Mr Shallow – you wouldn’t be the first woman to do so, to be fair – but I simply ADORE the picture associated with your name (oo… did that sound a bit gay? I’m British, I believe we’re allowed a bit more leeway?) I have no idea if it’s you or a ‘stock photo’, I love it all the same. Likewise JB’s image. But isn’t it a bit risky of Cameron Diaz – my favourite American ‘comic’ actress by a country mile – to ‘out’ herself so publicly as a MHRA? Just sayin’, is all…

    RF: “I always forget that women are above any & all criticism.”

    You’ve invested far more colloquial froth and spittle over some imagined outrage here than anyone else.

    (btw…thanks, Z)

    I believe that interpersonal conflict at work arises a lot of times out of the insecure and bitter ’empowered’ feminist who is threatened by male drive, skill and intelligence.

    Unable to compete on these levels, the harridan attacks the male’s ‘attitude’ and ‘interpersonal skills’; things which are vague and hard-to-define and, frankly, irrelevant to how the work is performed (priority should be given to performance, IMO).

    The sabotaging of careers is the goal.
