liberal feminists: why aren't there more Women Billionaires?

me: why arent there 0 fuxkgin billionaires ??

That's like saying "why isn't there female Hitler?"
Whatever path makes her billionaire she will unavoidably be conditioned by the same ruinous values the powerful that rule society, might be cool if it's an alien billionaire...

@Elfie @jacethechicken The "power corrupts always" meme is stupid. It applies to individuals that don't shine when it comes to individuality, but for people with extremely strong senses of self, power and money are just tools, and they won't change their attitudes or values.
@nerthos @Elfie @jacethechicken Considering that a billionaire is related to money alone, that doesn't mean that she would have to get involved in what other billionaires do. She could keep a low-profile. Although if she didn't fight to keep her income, then I could see it being stolen from her by the vested interests of the state and others in power that are cosy with them.

“Public ‘career feminists’ have been more concerned with getting more women into ‘boardrooms’, when the problem is that there are altogether too many boardrooms, and none of them are on fire.”
― Laurie Penny, Unspeakable Things: Sex, Lies and Revolution

@gcupc @jacethechicken

I'm in a "Women in Leadership" class and it's very much this. Like "how to be just as good as the guys by overestimating your skills and assuming you deserve everything you get". Maybe less people in general should be jerks in the workplace. Just a thought.

Also we're reading a book by Sheryl Sandberg for it, COO of Facebook🙄

@jacethechicken this one, imho, is an instant #classic for being #radical in the think-new-root sense.

@jacethechicken Pointing out that there is not as much women billionaires as there is men billionaires is one way to point out that men and women are not equally oppressed by capitalism though.

@Sylvhem but the LibFem solution is usually to have more women billionaires, instead of just fewer billionaires.
