Tarnished, but still knighting

White Knights never learn. Well, they might learn just enough to stop sticking their genitals in the fire, but they never seem to grasp the basic principle that the end result of fire is to burn things into ashes:
I started advocating for women in engineering in 2006 when my dean at Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering, Kristina Johnson, made me aware of the declining numbers of women entering the field. As a former tech entrepreneur, I found the situation alarming. I had spent the last few years researching how education, immigration, and entrepreneurship drive innovation. The fact that half of our population was being left out of the fields most important to our future seemed deeply wrong to me....

Over the past few weeks, I have been accused of financial impropriety, arrogance and insensitivity, and sexual harassment. You expect these types of insults from bloggers, but I was quite surprised to find them coming from a National Public Radio affiliate, WNYC.

On February 6, WNYC published a podcast titled “Quiet, Wadhwa.” It criticized me for “taking the oxygen out of the room” by “speaking for women.” There were more than 11 minutes of inaccuracies and innuendo made against me without even an attempt at fact-checking — despite the serious nature of the charges. The vast majority of allegations would not have passed a simple Google search. Yet I was not even asked to comment. WNYC completely disregarded the fact that I routinely share my media platform with women and regularly refer journalists to women in tech....

I may have made the mistake of fighting the battles of women in technology for too long. And I may have taken the accusations too personally. Today there is a chorus of very powerful, intelligent, voices who are speaking from personal experience. The women who I have written about, who have lived the discrimination and abuse, as well as others, deserve the air time. So I am going to bow out of this debate.

I am still going to be an advocate for disenfranchised minorities; I will continue to mentor women and men entrepreneurs; I will surely coach my friends who are in positions of power in corporations; and I will echo the words of great women.
You would think that these jokers would learn that once they let the entryists into the room, their services are no longer required and they are expected to leave the newly surrendered ground to its new owners.

I thought Silicon Valley only represented two things to entrepreneurs:

1) a place to fundraise
2) a place to take the company when they wanted to exit

All the real start-up guys got a suite number from the UPS store (if they required a San Fran or Palo Alto address) and operated from a much cheaper location.

I remember some busybodies talking locally about this or that social problem of Silicon Valley - and I kept wondering why they thought that the concerns of a particularly wealthy, white population that had already passed the IPO and end-of-first-life of their companies was of one bit of significance to random people trying to start businesses anywhere else.

Yet he never thought he should take all his success and expertise in engendering entrepreneurship and go back to Delhi and lift up his people. He instead seeks to shape the environment that he came to because it was successful into his image of what he thinks should have made it successful instead.

something else that has just occurred to me about White Knights:
1 - men *want* to be seen as strong and dependable
2 - SJWs / male feminists being way over towards the Left / effete side of the curve don't often get overtures from women for protection
3 - so, when a chick flops by in front of him playing the "broken wing" ploy, the White Knight jumps at the chance to come to her 'defense' ... regardless of the facts of the situation.

this is also why they're not going to give up acting like this. they are desperate for women to consider them 'strong' and this is practically the only way they can even get a woman to feign that she respects him.

In the podcast that was aired on Feb 19, WNYC editors interviewed each other and made light of their own journalistic breaches. They hurled new accusations at me, and cut and pasted the worst parts of my interview — in which I couldn’t hide my anger and anguish. They very skillfully edited out instances in the interview where the host acted improperly. They aired about half of our 28 minute discussion.


no shit, you dumbass.

IF you are faced with hostile reporters
THEN you refuse all interviews
UNLESS you have access to raw copies of all video / and audio or make your own.

it's like dealing with crazy chicks.

IF a chick wants to have an argument with you
1 - pull out your cell phone and start recording
2 - leave the 'private area' immediately
3 - find witnesses as soon as possible

Kurt Busch is paying the price for not following the steps above right now. his career is probably done, as i don't see how he's going to get sponsorship money for his car anymore even if NASCAR reinstates him.

so, we're treated to the spectacle of Durhuranica Patrick dragging hind tit to the field every week while she's in a top tier car ( one of her other team mates is last years champion, Harvick ) while a former champion and proven performer will probably never see a top tier ride again.

That's what I believe this is really all about. The tech giants are putting boatloads of money into attracting/cajoling high school girls into STEM. You see articles about it on the tech sites all the time - "How do we 'welcome' women into tech?" and "How do we make tech less masculine?". As if women don't go into programming because computers don't come in pink.

They're couching it as some sort of war against the patriarchy, but it's really just a cynical attempt to increase the size of their labor pool so they can pay less. Apparently they can't get the H-1B caps lifted high enough.

Might even work if they manage to hitch it to the "you go girrrrrl" wagon. Just what we need - thousands of miserable women who wish they were doing something else.

Not sure when I began doing it deliberately, but whenever women I encounter in the world outside my family start with any type of feminsist/equality/SJW crap I turn off like an appliance. Eyes, all verbal communication, physical contact- everything, as if I have just seen a plane crash in the distance and I am a first responder. I do this every single time without exception and not to be rude but because I have quite literally had enough. I am through with listening politiely, indulging fantasies as if they were realities, with talking with any women at all if it comes down to that.

Now I hear from my wife something I have never heard before- "What did you say to so and so? She was going on and on about you, blah, blah, blah." In a good way.

Just like with children, you cannot indulge them to the point of ruining them. A child throws a tantrum, you walk away from them as if they just vanished off the planet, within minutes they will calm down and regain their composure and come around looking for approval. The problem has it's roots in civility, in decency and in the desire to do right by others. This doesn't work with terrorists children or women.

In the last 40 years the bottom fifty percent of the Hindu population in India has seen its caloric intake drop. Drop! They are eating LESS than they did 40 years ago!

These Brahmin bastidges have been starving their own people for 2500 years. Now, having extracted as much food from their countrymen's mouths as they can, they are dumping them to come here and make a few more bucks.

As someone who started in engineering and switched majors (I wouldn't have been happy doing it and it's debatable if I would've gained admission into the program of my choice, we did our core first year and declared major second year), having just laid my cards on the table, I'll say this: you do not want equality in such a critical science. I remember well my first semester (I went to a well known engineering school, nicknamed The Cradle of Astronauts) letters to the editor of the school newspaper complaining how hard it was and someone who had survived first year engineering (forget what subset he was in, maybe mech) asked simply, "Do you want your doctor to have been given a pass every time he messed up or beaten with reeds when he made a mistake?" Having a family full of doctors, save a sibling, myself, and my mother who was a nurse, I can answer wholeheartedly, beaten with reeds.

When you get quantity engineers, you have the Bopal Chemcial disaster in India, Tacoma Narrows in Washington, etc.

Since he brought up immigration, let me make this clear: immigration via H1B kills the opportunity American engineers have to land a job. I knew and still know one woman engineer who, incidentally, is not an American citizen but works here. She withdrew from our university, went to one back home (in her home state, not country) due to in-state tuition and, though she never said so probably, because it was easier back home (she had made mention how our university made it hard). Supposedly she is doing well in her current position. There's another I know who is a mechanical engineer.

That's it. Men tend to simply be more mechanically inclined, be it industrial, mechanical, electrical, computer, what have you. Quality is key. Leave quantity for gender studies and other bs.

"It was a boys’ club that regarded women as less capable than men and subjected them to negative stereotypes and abuse." Well, as many commenters here who are actually PEs have attested in the past, women just don't do well as a general rule. Stereotypes exist for a reason.

"The vast majority of allegations would not have passed a simple Google search."

Worked IMS last summer during, among other races, the Brickyard. She is a bitch to fans, pure and simple. Though this has nothing to do with that (brings a smile to my face) after she wrecked and was heading back to the garage, her car hit a piece of debris which landed in my eye. True story.™

"They're not being left out, they observably don't want to be in. I started off in engineering, and hated it. Hated, hated, hated it. I switched to another field, and was much happier."

EXACTLY! That dumb ad on TV, think it's an petroleum company running it, with a girl saying she wants to be one...how many women want to be engineers? Seriously?

Meanwhile, in the real world, women seem fine in this video not being engineers.

The feminist position here makes sense.

In order for women to feel empowered whatever they win has to be by their own efforts. If men help them it isn't really empowering to women - in fact its dis-empowering.

Men and women can participate in a shared goal to create a more fair and equitable society, but of course that isn't the feminist goal.

A charitable explanation of feminism would be that it is a movement for women to both demonstrate and accumulate power, and any male participation would of course be detrimental to that first goal, though not necessarily to the second.

The sweet little things want to feel they did it all by themselves.

If men simply granted feminists their demands they would be terribly unsatisfied. Feminists want to feel that they wrested concessions from unwilling men - that they OVERPOWERED men. Obviously men cannot assist in such a goal.

Since this can never happen, feminists are doomed to perpetual frustration even if they reorganize society completely according to their wishes - which is why feminist goalposts constantly shift. Each satisfied demand fails to satisfy, since it was conceded not seized by force.

Since women cannot seize what men are not willing to concede, feminists are in an impossible position. But that;s what happens when your goals - demonstrating that women can seize concessions from men that are not willingly granted - are in fundamental opposition to reality.

A charitable explaination of feminism is that too many men were sackless wonders without the courage to tell women when they'd gone far enough with their temper tantrums. Feminism is one gigantic shit test that we've been collectively failing for about a century.

I've known guys like this early in their careers, when they were just figuring things out. When they started to really dig into feminism and find out how unreasonable it is, how dishonest, and how demeaning to their fellow men, that gave them a little smirk. They thought that meant their male peers, to whom they compared themselves, would be more reluctant to push this odious stuff, and that would give them, the sellouts, a career advantage.

Give them a whiff of a client / patron relationship, or a hint that they're being preferred because they are "more open-minded" or "sound on gender" and they are off, set in their course for life.

"I started advocating for women in engineering in 2006 when my dean at Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering, Kristina Johnson, made me aware of the declining numbers of women entering the field."

Something like that is all it takes.

Never pity them. Never ever pity them. They were rotten from the beginning. They rushed to support evil and lies, because they thought that would get them elevated over more honorable men, and the only thing they don't like is when it stops working for them.

"I am still going to be an advocate for disenfranchised minorities; I will continue to mentor women and men entrepreneurs; I will surely coach my friends who are in positions of power in corporations; and I will echo the words of great women."

Of course he will.

Yep.

If your narrative is that by your own valor alone you stormed the unyielding gate, the public presence of the traitors who in fact opened it for you without resistance is... unnecessary.

It bears repeating: The left always ends up devouring its own. Those such as the white knight elements who are unbelievably stupid and therefore most obviously useless will be quickly eaten first.

And so, ladies and germs, we see that cultural marxism follows the same path as economic marxism. Both can trust no one, so each tries to control everything about everyone. But of course in either case, the state can never hope to have all the information it purports to need in a timely manner, nor can it ever effectively process nor react quickly enough to whatever information it may already have. If it tries to do so, it not only fails miserably (creating chaos), but must inevitably set up a politicized tyranny resorting to 'who-whom' in its attempts to enforce its will.

Are you listening, are you processing anything upstairs Mr. white knight? Repeat after me, "Who-whom, who-whom, who..."

What's absurdly funny is that non-Oriental women don't really want to be engineers, they just want to "be in engineering". At the engineering companies I worked for, I never once met a white woman who hadn't quickly drifted over to some marketing/sales function. Real engineering? well, leave that tedious head-banging stuff to the nerds.

My brother-in-law contracted with a Canadian company of all-female engineers to take one of their products to market - a body-scanning booth that would give you your dress size in however many dimensions you wanted that could be installed in shopping malls and didn't need anyone to run it.

He couldn't get them to commit. They had the prototype built and functioning, he had dealt with all the regulatory issues and kept saying "It's time! Let's do it! We'll solve the remaining problems once WE ARE IN THE MARKET!". No good. They dithered and hummed and hawed and eventually he walked away from the project.

They were too afraid of failing to try and succeed.

zen0: "If you do not put it on YouTube but just let the offending persons know you have it, then it is useful and also has plausible deniability."

Laws regarding all-party consent require notification before recording -- doing so and letting them know afterward is still illegal in these cases.

If you claim to have such a recording and the other person files a criminal complaint on that basis, you may suddenly find yourself on the receiving end of a search warrant with all of your computer equipment seized. That's fine, if you want to deal with the hassle of it all. But I advocate being aware of that possibility before doing such a thing.

bob k. mando: "the interview will ALREADY be being recorded by the reporterette bimbo. all parties will have already signed releases to that effect."

IF the reporterette consents to the other person also recording
THEN it's OK.

However, when a reporter conducts an interview with a person, that reporter doesn't typically sign a release -- only the interviewee does.

Furthermore, that is not what you implied when you said "record the interview surreptitiously"; this implies non-consent, else why the need to hide it?

Here's an example:

"Only 12 states require a person to obtain permission from all parties before recording a conversation.

Unfortunately for Luzerne County Controller Walter L. Griffith Jr., Pennsylvania is one of them.

The citizen advocate turned elected watchdog faces arraignment this morning in Wilkes-Barre on charges he violated the state's strict wiretapping law, which bans secret recording in almost all instances.

"I will echo the words of great women."

And then they tell him to shut up. I suppose they don't believe there are any great women. Those misogynists!
