The Nordic Gender Paradox

Jordon Peterson is quite the troublemaker

He is a professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. He started becoming known via the Internet making the case against gender neutral pronouns and his opinion that foceed “gender equality” will never work, because men and women are different and want different things from life.

The Nordic Paradox is that in Norway and Sweden, which have very high standards of living and government mandated gender equality, the percentage of females in management jobs is some of the lowest in Europe. You want to find countries with a higher proportion of female managers – look in Belarus, Latvia or Jamaica.

As countries push women into college education to advance their important careers, an odd thing happens. The number of women available to do child care dries up, forcing mothers to drop out of the work force or work part time to take care of the children. Since a large portion of the workforce works for the government and taxation is so high, there is no motivation to work harder – except for the men, who work long hours and stay in the work force continually, doing what they have to do in order to get ahead.

    I think it’s fun to watch him trigger these people and expose their hypocrisy.

    A few days ago there was an article about officials in these Nordic countries lamenting the “dangerously low (white) birth rate” and hand-wringing over what to do about it…

    These men have the privilege of keeping part of the money they earn. If they are white men, it is a huge privilege in light of the Affirmative Action programs that give the workplace preference to recent immigrants (illegal aliens and otherwise) provided they are not white men.
