Re: As if men aren't condescended to as well

Not so much bored, more like they have either a degree they can't market (Marxist studies or whatever) or an ideology that they wish to spread (or both).

A YouTuber called Benjamin Boyce produced a video (Laurier's Racialized Ponzi Scheme) that broke down this kind of mechanism. In summary: We have a degree that isn't useful but still need a job. Here's an idea, lets manufacture problems. We'll visit companies and say all this activity that is happening is racist/sexist/etc and only we can sort it out. You must use us and quickly because you will have these problems and if you don't let us solve them then you are complicit in causing those problems. Oh look at all these problems we've found! We've got a lot of work to do...
