SJWs attack Open Source Software

Paging ESR... paging ESR... ERS, please report with your weapons loaded. We have an SJW breach in OSS. #OSSGATE operatives, please report to your activation nodes.

8 May 2015 Eve Braun (eve.t.braun@gmail.com) wrote: Two other things we implemented which aided the recruitment process:

We followed advice which is quickly becoming the industry norm. Never look at someones Github profile until you have made the decision to hire or not hire them and do not let it influence you. Github profiles tend to favor CIS White men over most minorities in a number of ways. CIS white men often have more spare time or chose to pursue building up an impressive portfolio of code rather than women or minorities who have to deal with things like raising children or instiutionalised racism. Some in the SocJus community have even said that technically companies could possibly even be breaking discriminatory law by allowing peoples github profiles and publicly available code to influence their hiring decisions - watch this space.

(More info: http://www.ashedryden.com/blog/the-ethics-of-unpaid-labor-and-the-oss-community)

We used Randi Harper's (https://twitter.com/freebsdgirl) blockbot to assess applicants twitter profiles for problematic or toxic viewpoints. This may sound a bit extreme but some of the staff here suffer from Aspergers & PTSD and our top priority is to ensure that they don't get put in triggering situations.Making a wrong hire could present a scenario where the employee could be triggered on a daily basis by another employee with an oppressive viewpoint. Other than from a diversity standpoint, from a business standpoint these sorts of negative interactions can cost a company a huge amount of time & money in employees taking off sick days. When all the employees are on the same page the synergy in the office aids productivity.
Still think the anti-SJW crusade is an overreaction? There is only one answer to them, only one cure: relentless rejection. Look to #GamerGate and #SadPuppies for inspiration and ideas on how to push them back.

Notice that the SJW Eve Braun is trying to make a corporate virtue out of saving company time and money by not hiring "CIS white men with "problematic or toxic viewpoints". Of course, SJWs always lie.

Or maybe they should just not hire people who are so emotionally damaged that they cannot tolerate the existence of people who disagree with them. That seems easier to me.

As isolated cases this kind of thing would resolve itself: Either this way of filtering your hires for diversity is beneficial to the company, or it is not. If it is the company will thrive and we'll see more of it. If it isn't, then it won't.

(This is similar in many ways to the "women get 85% of the salary of the equivalent man" argument: If that was the case all corporations would preferentially hire women to men just to save money.)

Unfortunately, this isn't happening in isolation: It is happening in the context of the SJW culture war against men, against whites, against non-conforming thinkers. So .. VD and all Ilk: Fight on!

The dirty Kulaks have all the money. It's why they can afford to actually learn how to farm. If we just kick them off the land and shoot the ones that don't run fast enough, then everyone else will... somehow learn to farm better.

I can't tell if this is joke that'll be funny in ten years or the one that stopped being funny ten years ago. Either way I'm not laughing. The SJW nutjobs need that big, old timey hook to yank them off stage for all our sakes.

IF you are *not* to allow the Github profile to influence you in any way
THEN why are you even wasting time looking at it?

wait, wut?

CIS white men have no children to raise? well, who the fuck is fathering all these children then?

but queer white men have to deal with racism, so "don't have time" to code? and visiting the bathhouse 7 nights a week wouldn't have anything to do the lack of spare time, natch.

All of the really big OSS contributors I know do not waste time with Twitter or Facebook etc.

Perhaps that is why women have less time to code. (Also, the differences in variance, including the variance in sheer bloody mindedness needed to succeed in OSS, means that there are far fewer women who can actually do it.)

Um, paging ESR? The man who coined Kafkatrapping in 2010? Who was talking about ideological corruption in 2006? Who do you think taught GG how to fight SJWs? Who has been fighting against censorship and for free speech online since the 90s? Who fought Scientology on Usenet, who told Chanology what was what?

http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=260

Newsflash, we know.

- The Ada Initiative is behind the anti-harassment policies that conferences like Pycon and JSConf adopted years ago.

- Adria Richards's DongleGate: she misheard a man making a joke in the audience at a conference, shametweeted his picture, got him fired, then compared herself to Joan of Arc.

- ModelViewCulture, co-founded by Shanley Kane, has been decrying "brogrammers" and systemic oppression in tech for a few years now. Did you think Milo Yiannapolous' articles about her on Breitbart happened in a vacuum?

- GeekFeminism Wiki has been cataloguing feminist alternate reality for years, including shaming of keynote speakers, lionizing their "fight" against people who call out their financial parasitism on Gittip/Gratipay/Patreon, etc.

- Conferences have been shamed and even cancelled for having too many (white) men on their panels (BritRuby).

If you talk to conference organizers, you find they mostly don't care, but they simply can't afford the financial risk of having one of their events boycotted and having to foot the bill. Tickets for these things are in the $100-$1000 range, and that's with generous sponsors.

It's always been the people in tech. The problem with tech is that there is too much money involved, so SJW shaming works amazingly well. No conference organizer wants to be shamed, no employer wants the bad press. Everything is run on hype and image, and companies are just created to be sold and discontinue their product 6-12 months later.

What does Mrs. Belle (see 1:48) have to say about this latest SJW crusade? Having coded a bit in grade school (self-taught), taken formal classes in high school, and one when I was in engineering in college, I can say you need to a) know how to code EFFECTIVELY and b) CORRECTLY/ Decry "brogrammers", "white privilege", "too many men in tech" or whatever and hide behind PTSD (not real PTSD) or other excuses all you want. At the end of the day, people who get it done (who incidentally tend to be men the majority of the time) are who contribute most to IT,CIS, etc. They have a masculine subculture that has been in existence for millenniums when you get men together by themselves. Get over it or move on.

Blogger Mike Farnsworth May 09, 2015 2:54 PM  

Hm, so, let's get this straight. The four OSS projects I've made commits to, the three OSS projects I've created myself, my tech blog on rendering, and my success as a software developer are all really just because I'm a cis white guy who has all the spare time in the world. (Is spare time an alias for "privilege" now?)

Nevermind the fact that I'm married and have several kids, I work at home for an international company and my productive time is from 8 PM onwards because kids are home (and home-schooled currently); that I spend lots of time helping my kids, wife and my mother who is ill. Nor take into account the fact that I have debts to pay so that I can give my family a better life, so I basically haven't been on a vacation in a few years but instead bust my butt all the time instead.

But I should be disadvantaged for employment due to nobody looking at my profiles or portfolios, because I'm a straight white guy. I didn't manage to pull off all that other stuff due to sheer hard work and determination. Nope.

You know, if I were to start a business of my own, I would never discriminate based on gender, race/ethnicity, disability, nor sexual preferences. I will simply vet candidates based on skill, and then also based on emotional, mental, and moral stability and properly grounded confidence. That will eliminate pretty much all of these vindictive nitwits right off the bat.

"In an interview with ABC Radio last week, philosopher and professor Adam Swift said that since “bedtime stories activities . . . do indeed foster and produce . . . [desired] familial relationship goods,” he wouldn’t want to ban them, but that parents who “engage in bedtime-stories activities” should definitely at least feel kinda bad about it sometimes: “I don’t think parents reading their children bedtime stories should constantly have in their minds the way that they are unfairly disadvantaging other people’s children, but I think they should have that thought occasionally,” he said."

"CIS white men often have more spare time or chose to pursue building up an impressive portfolio of code rather than women or minorities who have to deal with things like raising children or instiutionalised racism."

Contrast that with what was once the universal wisdom:

"On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog."

On the other hand, on the Internet, it's fairly easy to tell if you're an idiot.  It's also reasonably easy to tell if you're a SJW or other disaster-in-waiting.

"CIS white men" do have one advantage:  they aren't spending lots of time on exercises in moral preening and maliciously constructing things to take gratuitious offense.  I've never put anything on Github but I'll bet that the major contributors have all spent a lot of time just learning how to do things.  When you're hiring, you want people who can do things.

I would love to see companies follow SJW hiring rules and then collapse.  Nothing would be sweeter than to see shareholder lawsuits against the management and board for allowing such folly.  I would also love to see companies check Github first and eat the SJW-run companies' lunches.

Say, in addition to the EEOC violation, could there be RICO potential in such blatant bigotry?

The unstated premise in that bit of insanity is that NAM parents are unable to read bedtime stories to their children, or it's "not part of their culture".  So, in order to be more "fair", white parents should deliberately dumb their own children down until everyone is "equal".

I am reminded of this hilarious kerfuffle:

Catfights over handbags and tears in the toilets. When this producer launched a women-only TV company she thought she'd kissed goodbye to conflict...


Over in one corner sat Alice, a strong-minded 27-year-old who always said what she thought, regardless of how much it might hurt someone else. In the other corner was Sarah, a thirtysomething high-flier who would stand up for herself momentarily - then burst into tears and run for the ladies.

Their simmering fight lasted hours, egged on by spectators taking sides and fuelling the anger. Sometimes other girls would join in, either heckling aggressively or huddling defensively in the toilets. It might sound like a scene from a tawdry reality show such as Big Brother, but the truth is a little more prosaic: it was just a normal morning in my office.

The venomous women were supposedly the talented employees I had headhunted to achieve my utopian dream - a female- only company with happy, harmonious workers benefiting from an absence of men.

It was an idealistic vision swiftly shattered by the nightmare reality: constant bitchiness, surging hormones, unchecked emotion, attention-seeking and fashion rivalry so fierce it tore my staff apart.

When I read the other day that Sienna Miller had said there was no such thing as 'the Sisterhood', I knew what she meant.

I can understand why people want to believe that women look out for each other - because with men in power at work and in politics, it makes sense for us to stick together.

In fact, there was a time when I believed in the Sisterhood - but that was before women at war led to my emotional and financial ruin.

These people are nuts. I'm a programmer. If a bunch of women want to get together and code, and synchronizing their menstrual cycles or whatever helped then churn out good code, then who would possibly care? Nobody at github gives a crap what race or "orientation" or whatever the crap you are if the code is good.

It's like Vox's "the iron doesn't care": the source doesn't care. It doesn't care what race you are, or how "disadvantaged" you are, or how you "identify." It works or it doesn't work.

Screw these idiots and their obsession with their genitals. Code is (more or less) objective. They hate it because a CPU doesn't grade on a curve if you whine at it enough.

People have no idea how much software is created by hobbyists. While the Internet did start as a government project, much of the innovation came from college students tinkering around in their spare time -- sometimes even breaking the rules to get at the machines to do it. Things really took off when individuals, almost all of them white men with a few Asians sprinkled in, wrote software like Trumpet Winsock, Linux, and Netscape. The Internet runs primarily on code that was written for free, and even commercial software typically depends on it. I've been in the business for 20 years and I'm still astounded by how much software guys create for nothing more than the satisfaction. For every hip, front-end project that gets attention, there are hundreds of libraries, modules, compilers, and other under-the-hood programs that people use without ever knowing their names, let alone the names of their programmers.

You know, if I were to start a business of my own, I would never discriminate based on gender, race/ethnicity, disability, nor sexual preferences. I will simply vet candidates based on skill,

Sounds good, but they invented "disparate impact" to prevent that very thing.

I looked that up and...wow, what a perverse legal doctrine. There are so many completely legitimate reasons why a particular demographic or class would end up being hired less for particular jobs, that's just scummy lawyer bait. However, it's reasonably easy to come up with 1) a stated requirement for their job that they're unlikely to fulfill well, and 2) a reason to toss them if you hire a lemon.

I live in a right-to-work state, which means an employer can send somebody packing at any time for any reason, or no reason at all. Being catty, subversive, or one who passive-aggressively out-groups other employees (e.g. doing the usual SJW tactics), which they'll eventually do, will result in a quiet case built against them while giving them one clear warning that the behavior has to stop immediately. Then, the boot, with no particular reasons stated.

an impressive portfolio of code rather than women or minorities who have to deal with things like raising children

Every woman has hobbies. You find a way to make time. If I wrote code the way I sew or read a book, I'd have a huge ass portfolio, too. Somehow i can figure out how to do these things while STILL raising my children.

You read it here first. Making better decisions is racist and sexist.

I recently assisted with some shortlisting for a civil service position, despite the minimal requirements of the job (receptionist) it was subject to the most byzantine selection criteria imaginable. This meant that we were forced to interview a candidate that had written as 50% of their supporting statement 'I intend to be honest I don't really want this job but it will give me the experience I need to move on'.

This is why STEM fields can't handle social justice warriors. SJWism is the opposite of a meritocracy. Tech companies need to be nimble and produce quality, they can't afford to have dead weight coders around who don't know how to do their job. Easiest way to tell if they're going to work is to see what they've already put together.

Also, it's a great example of how the SJWs poison the fields they work in with their endless blacklists, much like a spreading cancer. One can reason almost without fail that if they accuse someone else of using a particular tactic (blacklists, code words, back room dealing, etc.), it's actually a tactic that they use themselves, on a regular basis.

I have been online for 17 years and have found that a website/community with higher percentage of women (and effeminate men) are much more likely to be a cesspool with drama, tears, and backstabbing. A website/community with a higher percentage of masculine men or a balanced percentage of men and women are more likely to confront conflict head-on and resolve it quickly.

Also are these "trigger" people going to wrap themselves up so much in their safety bubble that even the simplest "trigger" send them into a coma?

Yep. Her heroes can be a bit cardboard, but lately it seems like every story I read about leftists makes me think, "That's exactly what Taggart/Lillian/Ferris/Scudder/Boyle said." Sometimes nearly word-for-word.

As a bonus, James Taggart perfectly exemplifies the jumped-up Gamma. If you want to understand the Gamma SJW's desire to destroy the good and beautiful, read his thoughts upon meeting the hero-worshiping shop girl.

These chicks have to be writing satire? It is so, so otherworldly. How do any of their companies operate if they are all runing around looking for trigger points and boogie men? I suspect their companies will either fail or have a prolong passage into mediocrity. No hard-charging in their workplace! Delicate flowers Unite!!!!

It's actually worse than this. Many of these people have become such sensitive snowflakes that no viewpoints are required; straight white males oppress them by their very presence. When there are no straight white males in their presence, just knowing that straight white males exist and may be living happily and successfully somewhere int the world may trigger them.

I'm sorry, I have grown up with Aspergers for over three decades, was diagnosed with it before anyone knew what to do about it or what it really was, and I'm gonna say straight up that no one suffers from Aspergers. What we 'suffer' is the ignorance of others and social misappropriation. And it's quite clear from this line of thinking that there are still people around who have no fucking idea what it is.

"Because Obama really is an Ayn Rand villain."

Though often decried as "cardboard characters," it is Rand's villains who have real life exemplars. Hillary Clinton is Ivy Starnes made flesh in all her disdain for the productive and her lust for economic and social power.

And of course John Scalzi is our Peter Keating, the second-rater who sucks up to the SJW establishment, rips off real creators, surrounds himself with fellow mediocrities, and tries to destroy the reputations of his betters.

The only difference is physical: Keating is portrayed as handsome and athletic.

I was amazed when I read this. Usually feminist "logic" goes "men and women are exactly the same, oh and by the way, women are superior in this thus and so."
This one completely admits that white men outperform other people, of course she goes on to whine "its not fair, whaaa!"
I don't remember the last time an SJW admitting superiority in their enemies.

Rand's villains and heroes are both cardboard. She thus succeeds as an artist in depicting villains with great verisimilitude. Evil is ultimately cookie-cutter boring.

Heroes aren't.

John Galt is boring; Mal Reynolds is not. The man who shot Liberty Valance is not boring. Nathan Bedford Forrest is not boring. Bobby Shaftoe is not boring. In the movie 2010 HAL 9000 is not boring.

Amen. If they really want to make the workplace more accommodating to those of us whose brains got misfired in this fashion, they could start by firing all the left-wing women and SJWs. They're the one's trying to re-create the hot-house middle school environment where people have to navigate a maze of contradictory unspoken social rules.

Heh. SJWs trigger Aspies and create a hostile work environment: I could have fun with that.
