LA County’s MTA basing public policy on the displaced data of suggestible female minds.

 

There is one thing I will utter shamelessly about women. Something I’ve learned over my many years. I will not back down on this one.

 

Women are very impressionable and excruciatingly susceptible to suggestion. Any man worth his salt learns, in time, that some of his most sincere, honest revelations should never be remarked out loud in the presence of his girlfriend or wife. A man, after experiencing the lifelong innate female weakness that blossoms in her inner mind, that capricious soul with its tenuous hold on life’s duality, realizes painfully that to utter a trifling self-doubt or unabashed weakness to a woman is akin to planting the seeds of such thoughts in her mind and thus, energizes an externally planted train of thought, or mental pattern, that she might never have held until the idea was uttered and received by her quivering sense of mutable self.

 

You never tell a woman something you don’t want to eventually have to face when its pointed back menacingly at you sometime in the future under less pleasant circumstances.

 

If you confide an insecurity or self-doubt to a woman, she will allow the root of this thought to expand radiantly and harmfully in her mind. It will spawn and proliferate damaging exaggerations of your sincere contribution and you, essentially, have opened her previously closed mind to a new train of thought that she is now watering and pruning, thanks to your big mouth. And she will allow such thoughts to fester until the appointed time when she wrathfully unleashes it to wreak havoc on your relationship. Women don’t think about shit until you mention it, then all hell breaks loose because they arrived at a conclusion they don’t seem to realize was never arrived at on their own.

 

Ever talk to a woman after she wakes from a dream in which she argued with you, or in which you cheated? She will contain that dreamy anger-residue and it will follow her into this waking state where she will bare razor claws across your unsuspecting ass like Freddie Krueger springing from an unformed limbo waking nightmare.

 

Women’s minds are very malleable. If you suspect a woman has never considered a certain avenue, just mention it to her and you’ll find that in time, she has become consumed with it. All you need to do is drop the kernel in her brain. Walk away and let it stew in that emotional, impressionable Petri dish that is her mental state.

 

This is also why the kooky PUA community has adopted NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) as one of its cornerstones of pick-up artistry. Such a tool exploits the wallowing female persona which can easily be enjoined into any externally constructed path laid out by anyone halfway adroit with NLP.

 

And it is also why I am disgusted by a new move afoot, thanks to LA County’s Metro Authority, to bring the hammer down on alleged “victimization” of women, which evidently has become such a proliferate, concerning menace that they include such matters as part of a battery of questions routinely presented as an annual survey which riders are free to voluntarily complete. The MTA conducted this survey as a method of determining just how dire the hidden sexual harassment plague had become on our trains.

 

As was the case last year, the survey included a question asking Metro riders about sexual harassment. Specifically, the question asked riders if they had experienced unwanted sexual behavior including, but not limited to, touching, exposure or inappropriate comments in the past six months.

 

Twenty two percent of those who responded said ‘yes’ in this year’s survey. The question was worded slightly differently last year when the question asked if riders “felt unsafe” due to harassment in the previous month; 21 percent of rail riders and 18 percent of bus riders answered ‘yes.’

 

Yes, it’s all in the wording, especially when you’re relying on self-reported unpleasantness as reported by women long after the fact. Surely, this is more accurate than police arrest records.

 

In the 2014 calendar year, the Sheriff’s Department received 99 reports from riders related to sexual harassment with the LASD saying that 37 of those reports met the legal threshold for sexual harassment. Twenty arrests were made as a result of the reports, with offenses that included unwanted touching, indecent exposure and/or inappropriate comments. There were a total of about 450 million boardings on Metro buses and trains in 2014.

 

And of course, all this blather and wah-wah self-pity is not worth a thing unless a concerted activist crusade is spawned which concurrently justifies the existence of lots of sensitive, yammering talking heads.

 

NEXT STEPS

Currently, Metro is working with the advocacy group Peace Over Violence to develop a strong campaign to stop sexual harassment and empower potential victims. We will launch the campaign to coincide with National Sexual Harassment Awareness month in April. Our campaign speaks to our riders on three themes:

•Sexual harassment is a testing ground. People who start out with uncomfortable remarks or touching are just testing to see how far they can go. If unchecked, the harassment can ramp up to stalking, assault and even rape.

•People don’t have to tolerate it. Many incidents go unreported because the victim mistakenly thinks nobody cares and nothing will be done. We encourage passengers to report any incident of sexual harassment.

•Keep yourself safe. Sexual harassment can happen to women and men, girls and boys. We can keep ourselves and other safe by reporting sexual harassment. We will continue to monitor the levels of harassment through our research program which includes the semi-annual Customer Satisfaction Survey.

 

It’s all about empowerment! This tripe is a money-maker for hordes of swiney bureaucrats and do-goody meddlers and self-justifiers.

 

So in 2014, 20 arrests were made by the Los Angeles Sheriff Department for sexual harassment on MTA buses or trains…a grain of sand in comparison to the millions of riders who routinely boarded public transportation last year.

 

Still, the MTA’s lauded survey mocks reality, but we must listen to it. The survey questionnaire presented females with questions that lead an impressionable mind to inflame memories and passions. Who needs Fifty Shades when you have the MTA sexual harassment survey?

 

As was the case last year, the survey included a question asking Metro riders about sexual harassment. Specifically, the question asked riders if they had experienced unwanted sexual behavior including, but not limited to, touching, exposure or inappropriate comments in the past six months.

 

Twenty two percent of those who responded said ‘yes’ in this year’s survey. The question was worded slightly differently last year when the question asked if riders “felt unsafe” due to harassment in the previous month; 21 percent of rail riders and 18 percent of bus riders answered ‘yes.’

 

The MTA, realizing that arrest numbers are infinitesimally smaller than the numbers they want to see, numbers which will justify spending and oodles of consternation on the part of bored public officials, now paints the bulls-eye around the facts and asserts that many incidents go “unreported.”

 

Uh-huh…if a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound…?

 

Los Angeles County’s Metropolitan Authority has resorted to basing public policy on surveys of women who, experience tells us, willfully expound on the victim role if granted the stage and the suggestion.
