Dear Lord Above, the man’s a Geek

Mr. Gates was known for making clumsy approaches to women in and out of the office.

Extremely clever, most ambitious and all that but still a Geek.

Are these people not familiar with human beings?

Some of the employees said that while they disapproved of Mr. Gates’s behavior, they did not perceive it to be predatory. They said he did not pressure the women to submit to his advances for the sake of their careers, and he seemed to feel that he was giving the women the space to refuse his advances.

What do they think men and women get up to?

Even so, Mr. Gates’s actions ran counter to the agenda of female empowerment that Ms. French Gates was promoting on a global stage.

The ability to say no ain’t power?

This last is most unkind of me but the whiff, the odour, I’m getting from the French Gates complaints is that the bloke who made all the money wasn’t paying as much attention to her desires when spending it as she thought fit.

  1. I don’t think any women have had difficulty saying no to me. On the rare occasions one said yes they seemed to mean it. But I’m not Mr French Windows.

  2. I can’t imagine how many prosecutors are out there sharpening their knives and itching to prosecute Gates over things like this. If he is ever accused of having availed himself of Epstein’s harem of teenage girls it’ll be a feeding frenzy.

  3. Hang on a minute wasn’t Melinda a Microsoft employee too? So at least one of his advances in the office wasn’t unrequited.

    And hang on further don’t something like half of couples meet at work? If we remove this possibility it isn’t going to end well is it?

    Not that anything these people propose will ever end well.

  4. “Known for making clumsy approaches to women” – every man ever is guilty of that. It’s an acquired skill.

    The days of flash your pecs and hit ’em with a club are long gone. Even then you had to know the appropriate strength of your swing (my great great great great great great great great great great great grandfather went through six fiancés before he perfected his technique)

    I can’t remember where I heard/read this story but it was about a woman who decided to live as a man. Not one of the trans mentalists but a fairly normal woman who dressed and tried to act like a man to see how “privileged” we really are.

    She said the hardest part was living with all the rejections when she approached women for dates.

    Possibly the book Self-Made Man by Norah Vincent?

  7. ‘“Known for making clumsy approaches to women” – every man ever is guilty of that. It’s an acquired skill.’

    I think I inherited mine.

  8. So, man approaches woman, woman says no, man backs off – but that’s *still* not enough?

  9. There’s a hockey player being sued (civil not criminal) for taking a woman back to his hotel 3 or 4 years ago and kissing and groping her before she said no.
    Be interesting to see how it turns out, of course he was immediately suspended when the allegations surfaced so the punishment is part of the process.

  10. BinD, I remember reading that some years ago – she was a New Yorker I think. Should be required reading for all females.

    And it makes me smile when they talk about ‘men having all the power’. 99.99% of the time if a man wants sex and the woman don’t, it’s back to the internet or Littlewoods catalogue (or possibly cold shower).

  11. So, man approaches woman, woman says no, man backs off – but that’s *still* not enough?

    Nowhere even close. Do you not understand that if you approach a woman who is out of your league (aren’t they all?) the very fact of your having approached her undermines her. If you aren’t super hot then you need to stay in your lane. Why is that so difficult for men to understand?

    😐

  12. Yes, I think there’s a bit of “Because you have approached me, you thought you were in my league. That brings me down in the eyes of others. Therefore I must destroy you to discourage others who may be emboldened by your approach and to re-establish me in the eyes of those I consider my peers.”

  13. Gates is a evil man.

    Many non-evil men have been ruined by false sex claims without the world giving a damn. So in the case of Gates anything that has a chance of destroying him is welcome.

    “Destroy” is relative. Unlikely that he will be jailed let alone killed which would be his just desserts.

    But if he can be emotionally and socially wrecked/ruined that should help make his nasty little plans for the human race even less viable and less likely to happen than they already are. Any move in that direction is good.

  14. Feminists: “We’re not sex objects”

    Also Feminists: “We need to encourage female sexuality. Sex positive!”

    Still Feminists: “Men shouldn’t display any affection toward us whatsoever.”
