TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY SOCIAL MEDIA GENDER DISCRIMINATION CORPORATE HOAX SORTA EXPOSED!!!
Over the weekend, TKC's 2nd favorite social media hangout endured a battle of the sexes. Of course the conversation was one-sided and most dudes didn't 't bother to speak up or offer questions about facts or evidence regarding an allegation.
Here's the fanciful tale with all names excluded for protection of both the innocent and guilty AND because I'm also a very nice member of the club who only likes and shares the politically correct emojis:
"I'm a software engineer at Cerner. I had a senior architect this week tell me women are genetically "not good at math and science".
"I'm pissed. Really, really pissed. Where can I get involved politically?"
Accordingly . . .
THIS NEVER HAPPENED!!! IF A SENIOR ARCHITECT MADE AN OVERTLY SEXIST COMMENT LIKE THAT HE WOULD HAVE NEVER RISEN TO THAT RANK AND THE COMPANY WOULD BE JUSTIFIED IN FIRING HIM FOR USING SUCH POOR JUDGEMENT!!!
The punchline makes it even worse . . .
This poor lady's cry for help was answered with conveniently prompt advice to join the Greater Kansas City Women's Political Caucus that's "non-partisan" and works to promote women in the workplace. Never mind that the group is, in fact, a staunch supporter of the Democratic Party and pretty desperate to promote their upcoming Torch Dinner that has endured low attendance given years of infighting among the ladies and a rather boring lead up year to 2020.
Of course we would never suggest the GKCWPC was in on it and we're certain their hearts are pure . . . But some of their supporters have been known to be overly "strident" about their cause in the past. Also, don't get it twisted -- We know there are hundreds of instances of REAL discrimination in Kansas City and only about half of them occur in the TKC comment section. Make no mistake, this blog community believes that women deserve equal pay for equal work and even more cash for bikini & lingerie modeling. However, a well-educated, high-earning, corporate white lady playing the victim card is simply a bridge-too-far . . .
In most cases there's nothing wrong with a bit of guerilla marketing to promote a struggling brand but this little white lady lie serves only to demonize men in this social media group and throughout KCMO. All politics is based on deception but the problem here is that the pitch was clumsy, used a damsel in distress scenario and signals growing desperation as local lady politicos proved powerless to help Jolie Justus win an election, don't seem to be very confident in their ability to damage the sterling rep of Missouri Guv Parson and . . . Terrifying to so many delicate ladies and gents . . . Everyone seems to have a sneaking suspicion that there isn't a Democratic candidate out there who has the ability to unify the party or the public against President Trump and his hordes of supporters who are still desperate to blame everybody else for all of their problems.
You decide . . .
