Wal-Mart? More like Wal-Men.

The Supreme Court ruled earlier this week that lawyers could not claim to represent every single woman who worked at Wal-Mart ever in a gender discrimination lawsuit against the World’s Biggest Retailer.  It’s probably worth noting that the Supreme Court is mostly male.

Now, the intrepid Center for Responsive Politics notes that Wal-Mart gives more in political contributions to men than to women.  On the surface, this might look like an organization starved for attention trying to inject itself into a media cycle.  But maybe they’re onto something.

Maybe Wal-Mart is actually advancing the cause of men over women as a core tenet of their company’s mission.

In her dissenting opinion, Justice Ginsburg noted that though 70% of Wal-Mart’s hourly employees are women, only 30% of management are chicks.  (I believe Justice Ginsburg actually used the term “chicks” as well; at least that’s what the NRSC tweeted.)  Clearly, Wal-Mart has a habit of moving men up their own corporate ladder; and if CRP is to be believed, that philosophy extends to the political realm as well.

Wal-Mart’s shadow mission – beyond providing low-cost goods – must be to ensure there are as many men in positions of power within society as possible.  Sam Walton’s vision for America – and possibly the world – was a society run by a brotherhood of males while women are cast into the shadows of society and used only to breed more humans.

That’s the only solution that makes sense – right?
