Vox Popoli: SJW doesn't pay

The saddest thing about this post by a disillusioned woman is that only some corporations view a Gender Studies degree as a negative:

I'm a graduate of UC Berkeley with a major in Gender and Women's Studies. I had a 3.94 GPA and a 750 on the GMAT. My WE isn't that good, I've been a "Youth Outreach Coordinator" for Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach. I make like 30k a year.

To be honest, I was overly idealistic and extremely naive. I was extremely liberal/socialist, and that got worse at Berkeley, where I thought good intentions and a pedigreed university would empower me to change the world. I was deluding myself of the employability of my Gender Studies degree. It's actually been a con to some corporate employers. I'm disillusioned.

Social justice work isn't for me, and I want out. The fact that I've learned, is that some marginalized groups are definitely victims of their circumstances, but others are there for genuinely poor decisions, and not all are deserving of unvarnished empathy. I can't take this anymore. But I haven't been able to get non-retail or non-low-level sales jobs in the business sector.

My dad was a management consultant at Bain, and I miss my family's lifestyle and standard of living. I want to go into management consulting now. I'm fine with tier 2/big4/boutiques, doesn't have to be MBB. What are my options?

Her best option is to get a retail job, get married, have children, then quit the job. A university education is worse than wasted on most intelligent women, being an observably dysgenic and societally destructive accomplishment.

The chief consequence of encouraging women to pursue college degrees is lowering the average national IQ. This is not merely a negative consequence, it is a catastrophic one that future historians will be sure to note played a role in the collapse of various Western societies.
