In a blog post earlier this month in which I was wondering how a certain woman managed to have an extraordinary advancement in her career, a certain commenter suggested that she gave someone sexual favors.
This suggestion is considered to be extraordinarily insulting by women. HOWEVER, I think it's something that's worth being discussed. And please note that this is a general discussion and not specific speculation about any particular individual.
I think that this type of thing happens a lot more often than naïve libertarian blogosphere types realize. I would not be surprised to find out that 20% of successful women have had sex with a man who helped her career. Unfortunately there are no statistics, and there never will be because successful women who did this will never admit to it, so the 20% figure is just supposition. Maybe the real number is even higher. 50%? 75%? Does anyone have any ideas? I am 100% certain that the number is higher than 0%.
This totally screws up the libertarian viewpoint that everyone’s income is based strictly on how much value they created. Women who offer sex to get promoted are stealing the job from someone more deserving.
