Google tech: In the war between post-modernism and evidence, sometimes you do get punched

arroba Email

From Allum Bohkari at Breitbart Tech, interviewing an anonymous Google serf, “Emmett”:

“Emmett”: I remember Peter Goett entirely unironically posting a reply to a list with over 10,000 Googlers: “congratulations on your white penis.” To my understanding, had someone posted “black vagina”, that person would have been summarily fired. Also to my understanding, Goett appears to have received no punishment.

1. Every day, rank-and-file (nominally low-status, but informally very high-status) SJWs post SJW / Marxist propaganda that irritates non-SJW folks who just want to do their job.

2. Everyone who dares question any of these propaganda posts, no matter how politely, is chastised publicly by the SJWs, and then (I hope it’s clear) written up on some secret lists. Well, okay, not that secret — some people don’t bother even hiding it, as you can see by this tweet from Kelly Ellis, former Google employee: More.

Readers, please do not get upset with us for reporting this stuff. If corroborated, it points to a very sick work environment. That helps us understand what post-modernism really is and where it must necessarily lead for science and technology. And why many of us had better look for alternatives to Big Social Media.

Nature: Stuck with a battle it dare not fight, even for the soul of science.

What exactly can Google do at the corporate level to improve diversity when the pool of women interested in pursuing degrees in engineering and computer science is so low to begin with? I don’t think they can do much. Rather than take it out on some hapless engineer who was just trying to help by making suggestions, why don’t they try offering scholarships or more scholarships in computer science at the undergraduate level? Women who are better at academics than men would probably out compete men for those kind of scholarships. Whether it’s rooted in biology or culture men and women have different interests and choose different career paths accordingly. Let me spell that out very clearly. THEY MAKE DIFFERENT CHOICES. Isn’t that what we are free to do is a democratic society make choice based on interests and aptitude? Of course, they do that different in totalitarian Marxist societies. john_a_designer
There's plenty of evidence that men and women are different in various ways. There isn't evidence that any of these differences prevent women from being as good as men at engineering. When someone does argue that then you have to suspect that this is an attempt to preserve traditional white male privilege in that field under the guise of scientific objectivity. I know News wouldn't accept that from some privileged "Brit toff" so I would assume she wouldn't accept something similar from some privileged white Google toff. Seversky

It's not the reporting that upsets me News, it's when my posts disappear that I get upset. Brings back bad memories of when that quisling Salvador was granted power beyond his ability to control. Mung
