Luca Cicioni was new on the job and unsure of where things were. He saw a women passing by and asked her “Hi darling, can you help me?”. The woman turned out to be the manager of the company and she fired Luca, a fork lift driver, for referring to her as “darling”.
Many younger readers probably don’t know it but there was a time when women were not infected by the Progressive virus. What was different about them?
Well, the most noticeable thing was they had a mind of their own, and were not so easily influenced into what they could think or say. They were individuals rather than whitebait.
The second most noticeable thing was that they did not constantly compete with men. They existed in their own space, as man existed in theirs, and there was not the constant grating of the alpha male/ female contest.
Woman were not so plentiful in the workplace either way back. That’s because older generations understood the need for pro-creation, and gave it a priority above that of feminism. No matter how the Progressives re-write the rule book, its always nature that has the final say, and its women’s role to bear children.
Its also their role to raise and nurture the children while the man provides. Nature again.
A pre-Progressive woman may or may not have been offended by being referred to as “darling”. As I said, they made their own minds up and were not told what to think. If she was offended she probably would have said to the worker- “Yes, I can help you, but please don’t call me darling again.” If not she would have just helped him. Whatever, it wouldn’t have been volcanic.
Say the person Luca had approached was a male and he said “Hey mate, can you help me”? The guy would not have been focused on any issue other than whether he could indeed help. Unless he was too busy himself, he would have probably just said “Yes mate, what can I do for you?”.
So Luca’s problem would have been solved, he would still be earning a wage, and the company would still have a forklift driver.
The workplace today is overloaded with women, who are frequently hired to meet unofficial but politically correct demands for quotas. It has become a minefield for men, who cannot focus solely on the work to be done, but must always be wary of the trivia of upsetting their female colleagues.
In factories, in shops and in boardrooms, the most important thing on so many male minds is not inadvertently offending Progressive women. As Italian new boy Luca Cicioni offended one of them.
All of this concern with the feelings and social dictates of Progressive women, or with their need to “compete” with men, is a massive distraction to the business of running a company.
Luca’s experience demonstrates there is a cost to business of hiring Progressive women. Many businesses must be doing their sums and wondering it that cost is affordable.
