    For Business Owners, Managers or Human Resource Administrators

    Once upon a time I asked someone if they had ever hired a man. This was my exact wording:

    I was accused of being unrealistic and delusional. If that's the case I suppose I am not the only person with the same delusion. Read this post.

    Lots has been written about this phenomena, most of it in the strain of "why is it that men are so childish now." But men are not dropping out because of arrested development. They are acting rationally in response to myriad laws, attitudes and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the twenty-first century.
    My question is two fold and is directed at people responsible for hiring. However you are free to participate in this poll as if you were the person responsible for hiring.

    The first question: Do you prefer to hire men or women?
    The second question: What is the appropriate mix of male/female ratio?

    This poll is anonymous for the protection of your career and/or the protection of your company from lawsuits. Please utilize this anonymity to answer honestly.

    I see no rational basis why the “mix” of men and women should be a consideration at all. For any given position, it only makes sense to hire the candidate who is best qualified for that position.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    It would be nice if everyone had a flying pony who lays golden eggs. The reality is that ponies don't fly, they don't lay golden eggs and owning a pony isn't practical for most people. Women used to be discriminated against. It was so bad that the government had to force people to hire women. Now companies have found out how much better women are then men. Now the discrimination is reversed. I don't know why people become so defensive and disingenuous on this topic. This poll is anonymous. Discrimination happens hundreds of times a day.

    Old vs Young
    Black vs White
    Local vs non local
    Christian vs Muslim
    Qualified and expensive vs unqualified and cheap

    Male vs female is no exception. There is a preference that exists. If the Human Resource Department is cautious they will always lean to the side of the female even if they do prefer to hire males.

    All the people I've hired have been men but HR has yet to send me a female candidate at all

    My workplace is one man to about 20 women. I'm a minority, kinda like the token black guy.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I'm having a hard time understanding your posts in this thread.
    Stud works with a lot of women, I was trying to make a joke that didn't seem to work
