And that is your mistake. A look at how social justice warriors have penetrated the soft underbelly of engineering:
Engineering education has been infiltrated by a “phalanx of social justice warriors” who are steadily corrupting the field, according to a Michigan State University professor.
“They have sought out the soft underbelly of engineering, where phrases such as ‘diversity’ and ‘different perspectives’ and ‘racial gaps’ and ‘unfairness’ and ‘unequal outcomes’ make up the daily vocabulary,” asserts Mechanical Engineering professor Indrek Wichman in an essay published Wednesday by the James G. Martin Center.
“They have sought out the soft underbelly of engineering…”
“Instead of calculating engine horsepower or microchip power/size ratios or aerodynamic lift and drag, the engineering educationists focus on group representation, hurt feelings, and ‘microaggressions’ in the profession,” Wichman adds.Toni Airaksinen, “‘Social justice warriors’ are ruining engineering, prof warns” at Campus Reform
We didn’t know that engineering had a soft underbelly. We know this though:
Somewhere in the near future, we will be hearing a plaintive cry go up, after a string of “peoplekind”-caused disasters (that no one is allowed to discuss honestly), “Is there someplace out there that we can go, in order to hire a real engineer?”
See also: The war on math and science spreads to engineering. The social justice warrior needs engineers to be assessed largely on the basis of qualities other than knowledge of the discipline, maybe on adherence to concepts like social justice math. And they’re not going to give up because they count on strategies like wearing down the opposition. It’s a clever approach because their persistence creates the impression of wide support.
