Slut (noun): A woman with the sexual morals of a man. A man who is popular among women is stud but a woman who is popular among men is slut.
Understanding the above is prerequisite for understanding this article. If you don’t agree with it, then I recommend you familiarize yourself with the socio-biological foundations of the sexual “double standard”. (Refer to the links at the end of the article.)
Modern women across the board are turning sluttier by the day, but the call center industry in India especially suffers from an epidemic of sluttiness. Below are some of the reasons for that.
High number of youngsters
Workforce in call centers largely comprises of young people of less than thirty years of age. This is because many of the call centers hire undergraduate college students and even dropouts. Owing to the high number of youngsters, atmosphere in call centers is much like a college campus. What only makes it worse than a college campus is the fact that the young dimwits are earning their own money which gives them the sense of independence to escape parental control and act out their basic nature. Young women with their own money, with independence that comes with it, exposed to young men – perfect conditions for playing out sluttiness.
Working at night
People working in call centers hate it when they are stigmatized for
working at night. But the stigma is not unfounded. It is easy to do illicit things when the world is quiet and there are fewer eyes watching you. Large number of people working in call centers, men as well as women, have moral values which are abysmal. When I see call center women smoking on a street outside the office, I can’t help but wonder if she would be doing it had there been daylight and bustle of the world around with possibility of some known relative running into her. And smoking is not the most shocking thing I see. The night provides favorable atmosphere for the basic nature to play out.
Lack of professionalism at workplace
Call centers lack professionalism at workplace, simply because the workforce comprises of dimwits. As I mentioned above, call centers have a high number of youngsters working for them who carry casual attitude towards work and life in general. They lack polished, civil manners. Young men and women in call centers, with boiling hormones, behave like they do on college campuses. There are fewer restraints, because professionalism is not expected nor demanded of them.
Relatively high income for the low level of intelligence and skills
Compared to traditional industries, intelligence and skills required for a call center job are nothing. And for that low level of intelligence and skills, the dimwits working in call centers are paid too well. For someone who is not even a graduate it is very easy to earn anywhere from 25 to 50 thousand rupees a month. The problem with putting so much money in the hands of someone who is a dumb fuck is that the money is not going to be used in a good way. Most women anyway do not shoulder responsibility of feeding their families. Majority of women working in call centers are young and don’t have families yet. Where do they put all that money then? Fashionable clothes, accessories and make up. Partying out and having fun. In short, on acting slutty.
Increasing number of women smoking and drinking
Call center jobs can be mentally exhausting, talking to all sorts of angry and frustrated callers. Not all call centers are into customer service, but talking to any type of people continually all day takes its toll. Be it due to the nature of work or the fact that in the dark of night the world isn’t watching (actually both) a lot of women working in call centers are smokers. The bad habits of smoking and alcoholism in call center women are perhaps the highest outside of glamour industry. People with bad habits influence others. The number of women falling prey to these influences is increasing by the day. It has already reached a level where it doesn’t shock one anymore, seeing women act like men.
Women dress like sluts
One wonders if the women in call centers come there to work or to take part in a fashion show. Everyone wants to dress like models. And why not? Makeup, accessories and fashionable clothes, that’s all they seem to be spending all their salaries on, since most women working in call centers don’t provide for their families. Reason is, there are (well, mostly) only three types of women working in call centers: Single, divorced, and those with fucked up marriages.
Fun culture is encouraged
In most of the call centers fun culture is encouraged. Frequent parties where people drink and act out their animal instincts is a norm. Combine the lack of professionalism, lack of intelligence in average call center worker, average age of a call center employee, with the amount of money they make, and one can see what such culture would lead to.
High number of call center women are living alone
A very high number of women working in call centers are living alone. The reason for this, I believe, is that in most traditional Indian families women are not allowed to work, much less work at night. Therefore, high number of women who are too liberal and have already separated from their families, or are willing to separate, work in call centers. The number of call center women living alone may be around 20%, but even that is very high. Women living alone are most likely sluts. And this is a big number to influence other women around them of their slutty ways of life.
Spoiling marriages and providing sexual options to women
Married people working in call centers have a fucked up life. A marriage in which the woman is working is anyway an uphill battle. Women working at night only worsens the situation. Extra marital affairs are rampant in call centers which ruins marriages. Hypergamy trumps, because the fact that a married woman has to work nights in a shitty industry as call centers means that she is likely married to a socially low-ranking man. Call centers provide such women with options to spice up their boring life.
Not all women working in call centers are slutty. But the number of slutty women is high enough for the parents of girls to think twice before allowing their daughters to work in a call center.
