KT "Special" Report: Korean Women To Take Over Korea; Robots To Take Over Housekeeping


I'm not making this up. I couldn't make this up if I tried.

Korea Times Rule of Journalism #54:

Just make shit up. Seriously. Any old shit. Connect it to any other shit you can think of. We have a paper to fill!

PS: Robots are cool. Add robots if you can. Or ninjas.

(ps: come back and tell us more about Korea's matriarchal society when Korea's higher than 115th in the fucking world in the Global Gender Gap Index)

Because, clearly, women beginging to reach some level of equality in some aspects of life clearly means that it's becoming a matriarchial society. And because 85% of women helped make a decision in a household, they must be taking over the earth. AND they need robots because they are going to neglect the housework while making these decisions.

Oh, Korea Times, how you love to exaggerate.

From the article:
"The female proportion is also rising in conservative financial businesses where there are no female CEOs at major banks, insurance companies, asset management firms, futures companies and government agencies."

It has increased to none. How much was it before?

Why "matriarchal"?
Only someone with a patriarchal notion would bear this logic.

Gender equality is bastardized by such matriarchal orientation. Gender equality shouldn't have any m/patriarchal bearing!

KT is making an idoit of itself.
