This is why you don't hire SJWs

Is anyone - anyone - even remotely surprised that things went badly awry for the company that hired the tranny SJW who was pushing Codes of Conduct on Open Source projects last year?
At first I had my doubts. I was well aware of GitHub's very problematic past, from its promotion of meritocracy in place of a management system to the horrible treatment and abuse of its female employees and other people from diverse backgrounds. I myself had experienced harassment on GitHub. As an example, a couple of years ago someone created a dozen repositories with racist names and added me to the repos, so my GitHub profile had racial slurs on it until their support team got around to shutting them down a few days after I reported the incident. I didn't get the sense that the company really cared about harassment.

My contact at GitHub insisted that the company was transforming itself. She pointed to a Business Insider article that described the culture changes that they were going through, and touted the hiring of Nicole Sanchez to an executive position leading a new Social Impact team. I was encouraged to talk to some other prominent activists that had recently been hired. Slowly, I opened my mind to the possibility. Given my work in trying to make open source more inclusive and welcoming, what could give me more influence in creating better communities than working at the very center of the open source universe?

With these thoughts in mind, I agreed to interview with the team. The code challenge was comparable to other places where I’d interviewed, as was the pairing exercise. I was impressed by the social justice tone of some of the questions that I was asked in the non-technical interviews, and by the fact that the majority of people that I met with were women. A week later, I had a very generous offer in hand, which I happily accepted. My team was 5 women and one man: two of us trans, three women of color. We had our own backlog separate from the rest of the engineering group, our own product manager, and strong UX and QC resources. I felt that my new job was off to a promising start.

However, it soon became apparent that this promising start would not last for long. For my first few pull requests, I was getting feedback from literally dozens of engineers (all of whom were male) on other teams, nitpicking the code I had written. One PR actually had over 200 comments from 24 different individuals. It got to the point where the VP of engineering had to intervene to get people to back off. I thought that maybe because I was a well-known Rubyist, other engineers were particularly interested in seeing the kind of code I was writing. So I asked Aaron Patterson, another famous Rubyist who had started at GitHub at the same time as I did, if he was experiencing a lot of scrutiny too. He said he was not.

Shortly after this happened to me, the code review feature was prioritized. This functionality was rolled out internally pretty quickly. From that point on I didn't get dogpiled anymore, since I could request reviews from specific engineers familiar with the area of the codebase that I was working in and avoid the kind of drive-by code reviews that plagued my initial PRs.

A couple of months later, I finished up a feature that I was very excited about: repository invitations. With repository invitations, no one could add someone else to a repository without their consent. Being invited to contribute to a repository resulted in an email notification, from which the recipient could accept or decline to join and even report and block the inviter.

Feature releases such as these are frequently promoted on the GitHub blog, and the product manager on my team encouraged me to write a post announcing what I had shipped. Since it was so important to me personally, I wrote an impassioned piece talking about how this feature closed a security gap that had directly affected and provided an abuse vector against me. The post also served as an announcement to the world of the new team and the kinds of problems that we were charged with solving.

The post was submitted for editorial review. It was decided that the tone of what I had written was too personal and didn't reflect the voice of the company. The reviewer insisted that any mention of the abuse vector that this feature was closing be removed....

In speaking up like this, I felt like I was simply doing my job. I was trying to make a positive impact by speaking up for the minority of users who are regularly targeted for abuse. I wasn't just trying to represent the values of the Community & Safety team, I was trying the represent the values of marginalized communities. I tried my best to make a positive impact. I kept the needs and best interests of the most vulnerable people on our platform at the front of my mind at all times, and prioritized my work according to what would make the biggest difference to this population of users.
SJWs always - always - put themselves and their social justice before the interests of the project, the company, and the community. Like insects, they are always looking for a chance to further infest their surroundings.

Finally in January I got the chance to work on the one feature that I wanted GitHub to have most of all: a tool to make adding a code of conduct to a project easy... The code of conduct adoption feature was launched in May 2017, and was widely praised. It would be my last feature for GitHub.

I'll bet it was not widely praised within the company, but rather, by SJWs outside both the company and the tech industry. It is never, ever, a good idea to hire SJWs. Even the lesser ones are a serious problem; that's how Coraline was hired in the first place. Notice that as I warned in SJWAL, the lesser SJW had installed itself in HR and created a locus for infestation called the Social Impact team.

But don't worry, it has a happy ending. Of sorts.
My overall review was a "Does Not Meet Expectations." I was shocked and upset. A bad review out of the blue was not something that I had experienced before. I thought I had good rapport with my manager, and that if there was a problem that we would have been addressing it at our weekly meetings. In my mind this was a serious management failure, but there was apparently nothing I could do about it.

The same day that I had this review, I got some devastating personal news. I have bipolar depression and was already in a bad place mentally, so I found myself feeling crushed and hopeless. In an attempt to deal with things I ended up taking a dangerously high dose of my anti-anxiety medication. When I reached out to my therapist for help, she recommended that I go to the emergency room. This was the start of an eight day ordeal involving involuntary commitment to a mental health facility.

So, let's see:

Emasculated fake-female SJW rides an inroad to GIThub by using a low-grade SJW contact in HR, managed to set up its own team entirely consisting of women and POC. Team is the "Social Impact" team. (Warning bells should be going off all over the place.)

First orders of business are:
A: Attempt to socially coerce anyone and everyone it doesn't like.
B: Totally suck at at its primary purpose (coding).
C: Add in reporting/blocking features to facilitate further ease of cult-castigation, echo-bubbling and generally not doing its job.
D: Attempt to force kult-kodes of konnivery on every single project that exists on GIThub.

Is the "devastating personal news" that it is bipolar, or something else that remains unmentioned? I assume it is, since they loved to wear their defects on their sleeves. But that just begs the question, if the diagnosis had never been made, would you hear the sound of one hand clapping in the forest? I'm wondering what additional devastation was added by a confirmed rather than assumed diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Its self esteem, over-inflated as it is, couldn't possibly be affected.

Also, the reason she received criticism over her code isn't because she uses Ruby (which is very common, anyhow), but because it was likely sloppy horseshit. Alex Patterson, by contrast, one of those dreaded white males, could code worth a damn.

They put him in charge of a whole team? They gave him a generous offer? The person with such poor decision making skills he chose to mutilate his sex organs? Then he proceeds to create a system where he only gets feed back from people he chooses (read, people who say nice things about my work and don't point out flaws) then complains about being "blind-sided" in his review? Maybe it's because you made it impossible to get honest feedback any other time? Then he tops it all off with a visit to the asylum. That is good ending except for the part where they let him back out into the world where he can wreak more havic. I think society as a whole has a pretty good case to make against the asylum for their negligence in releasing this destructive psycopath. It is clear he hasn't learned any lessons or corrected his behavior by the tone of the article.

Best guess: three actual women, two men pretending to be women, and one actual man (poor bastard). Probably two of the actual women were "of color" and one of the men-pretending-to-be-women.

Alternately the team was all women and the "man" was the other trans: a woman pretending to be a man.

This is one of the reasons Facebook et al are toxic. The mom can create a social world wherein she gets nothing but pats on the back for destroying her child. Anyone with sense is blocked. I've seen this in person--two parents, both of whom decide to "transition" to the other sex. The child was the only sane one in the household, and forced to be the parent. It was ugly. The mother, who calls herself Lance, is romping all over social media trying to lure others into the insanity.

(It's an abomination to use a plural pronoun for a singular noun.) I guess it never considered that other people would have feelings - perhaps even strong feelings... - that it was trampling on, because, just like in how Coraline wanted all those other programmers to stop saying "Coraline's code is bad", Coraline always just appeals to amenable authority.

The leftists blather about the "imposter syndrome" when they talk about their neurological deficiencies. I am reminded of the uncanny valley phenomenon - women who find drag queens funny bristle at people like Coraline because they are trying to be like them, but they are never going to get over lacking in-group signifiers, like being able to talk like a woman, which, per Coraline's harrowing tale of self-discovery in learning it was born perfect and everyone else is flawed and a failure, Coraline could never talk to women, and I conclude it's because Coraline cannot talk like a woman while presenting external symbols of claiming to be a woman.

Finally in January I got the chance to work on the one feature that I wanted GitHub to have most of all: a tool to make adding a code of conduct to a project easy... The code of conduct adoption feature was launched in May 2017

I would note that it took him several months to add what sounds like a pretty simple feature. So either he's very slow, or GitHub has reached the point of size and convergence that it takes forever to get anything done. In either case, it means someone (or multiple someones) got paid for several months of zero productivity -- in fact, it probably had a negative impact on productivity, since adding a feature that's only useful for trouble-makers was bound to harm productivity in other projects that didn't see it coming.

By the way, it was already "easy" to add a code of conduct to a project: just upload it as a file, the same way you do a license or other documentation, and reference it in your README if you want to make sure people see it. So what he really means is he wanted a way to promote/enforce having a code for each project, and push it in everyone's face.

His fork was gone a few months later, and the original project was doing fine without him.

I had the misfortune of working for a small company that transformed from a happy place to work under a traditional White Christian male, to one that got infested by investors that removed him, and then could not find a suitable CEO replacement for well over 2 years, during which time I was ambushed and let go, due in no small part to my (then) relatively quiet Libertarian and anti-Feminist viewpoints.

All on the hush-hush, of course. Nothing admitted, only inferred. I never made a habit of being political while working (and I was a remote employee), and yet the bad blood from newly hired SJWs and two upper level White Knights would not be quelled.

It's all good though. I learn from my mistakes, something SJWs seem incapable of, and have since realized that returning to my former industry would just be the definition of insanity. Instead I write for myself. I might even submit the work to Castalia House -- once I am satisfied with it.

Ruby has been filled with cults of personality for a long time. Lots of fags and SJWs, with a lot of who-you-know social positioning around conferences, etc. So you get this pathetic "don't you know who I am!?!?" attitude from people who have accomplished nothing, but have given a bunch of talks and are "famous". It doesn't help that ruby is so open syntactically and functionally that it can support every special snowflakes coding style and DSLs.

Shimson, yes, Perl is definitely uncool these days. Why, it's not even on anyone's "Top Ten Most Popular Programming Languages" list anymore! And all those sigils...who can write attractive code with them cluttering it up? It's like they're in there to be unwelcoming on purpose.

Perl 6 is an interesting case. I suspect it's pre-converged, in that it has a code of conduct, the logo is a cute butterfly, Larry Wall talks about how he wants it to draw girls into programming, one of the early contributors was a man named Audrey, all the usual signs. On the other hand, I think Wall is old enough to remember when the rougher give-and-take of online communications drove innovation without all that cruft, and he's tried to promote a simpler code of "Hey, just try to be nice to each other." The code of conduct is buried in the draft documents and titled "Perl Culture," so you have to dig for it, instead of having it promoted on the home page.

Most importantly, the language is still (and may be forever) in the design phase, which means it's hard stuff, so I think that's kept the entryists at bay. But I have a feeling that they're lurking in places like the docs and website parts of the project, and if the language ever reaches a point where it gets into general usage and people start to depend on it, they'll come out of the woodwork and start doing what they do.

It's not my concern, because I tried it out and decided that, like many new languages, it does some interesting things but puts the coder too removed from the logic for real work. I'll stick with Perl 5, but it's an interesting test case to watch.

Confusion is understandable. He means there were three women and three men, but two of the men pretended to be women. Three of the people were "of color," and those three were all women or pretend-women. The man is apparently not "of color," or he would have bragged about that too.

See, every project needs at least one normal white male to make sure something gets done, even if what gets done is useless. At some point, you've gotta have some lines of code that function. Poor bastard must have been the Milton Waddams of the company, being stuck in that hell doing the work of 6 people because no one else could stand him.

Alternately the team was all women and the "man" was the other trans: a woman pretending to be a man.

Not a chance. Male-to-female trannies are overrepresented in programming because the male brain is so much better at it (and willing to do it) than the female brain. It's such a male thing that if you look up "women programmers," it seems like half of the famous ones were men. For the same reason, the chance of finding the opposite is extremely unlikely. Normal women programmers are rare enough, so once you multiply that by the percentage that are pretend-men, the numbers are tiny.

Also, we know there was one actual man for the aforementioned reason that some working code did eventually get written.

@126-Noticing a tranny is like Noticing a gay. Unless you knew them from when they were publicly noted to be of the other kind, they have to be "out of the closet" to be identified as a switch. And that has to be their choice. Otherwise, you have to pretend not to know what you know.

Telling everyone or merely guessing is like divulging their personal business, for some unfathomable reason. Now, what they choose to pretend to be is what they are, no matter if everyone knows better. You can't fill people in on the fact that they're being lied to, on penalty of death.

The analogy to being in the closet is not mine, and it doesn't work, really, because gayz want everyone out of the closet, in order to force us to "deal with it." On the contrary, they want us not to deal with biological sex, and pretend that the masquerade is real. But it is analogous in the sense that your real sex is a secret comparable to what sex organs you allow near your naughty places at night with the curtains drawn.

The other thing that struck me is when we had Christendom, and (I can't think of a better adjective) non-white-knight chivalry, the worse that happened was a wolf-whistle, Christians would tolerate swimsuit calendars but draw a proper line, and women were safe though occasionally had to put up with a bit of behavior that could be interpreted as boorishness or a compliment.

I was told that I should have accepted the offer of medical leave, and she said she felt like I was trying to manipulate her by sharing my feelings in the hopes of influencing the PIP. I was dismayed.

The interesting thing is the parallel with CNN. Denial. Solipcism. Entitlement. Which is contributing to the self-destructive death spiral.

Overdosed and surviving, then spending time in an acute psychiatric ward is not an ordeal.

Unless you are a entitled drama queen. Then everything is.

Opensource isn't diverse

OK, anyone can fork almost any project, they can create SJW teams, and do whatever code of conduct they want.

The problem is that Brogrammers rule. You throw them out, the project dies or goes moribund.

Creating a hostile work enviroment for SWCMs will make them leave.

I already mentioned that replacing the with H1-Bs creates a PoC Male utterly non-diverse workforce.

SJWs want to have witch-hunts and want to invade and investigate your personal life more than Jerry Falwell and the Moral Majority ever did.

Rational, sane people generally don't care about what you do off the clock as long as it doesn't negatively affect your work, or OpenSource contributions.

Coraline, interestingly enough, had problems with her boss that was a woman (apparently one from birth) who said she lacked empathy. Women can't manage in an SJW environment because they will not be Frat House Mothers, but start projecting and do the female competition thing. Women are probably more competetive than men, but in a resentful, undermining way. Men establish a hierarchy and move on. Women get catty.

Also the Drama Eunuch linked to her series of tweets on the horrible experience in the mental ward - but made those tweets private.

Blogger weka July 06, 2017 3:16 PM  

Reasonable approach in personal improvement plan. Reasonable goals. But the twit would not take medical leave and worked below standards and was clearly bullying.

From her twitstream, feels she won. That post should be a red flag to never hire such.

An emotionally unstable individual of indeterminate sex who's only "coding experience" is codes of conduct. You don't have to read SJWAL to realize this is a terrible hire.

But what can we really do to prevent limp-wristed, soft-boned idiots from falling for the "diversity hire" gambit? They never listen before making the mistake, and often, even the burnt finger doesn't teach them.

Psychopathology is as much a part of our fabric as a primary germ layer.

(The critical difference now is that we are being primed to encourage it.)

Now tell me this descent isn't (horrifyingly) innate.

I find it astounding the hire committee thought hiring tis individual was a good idea. Lack of resume with any accomplishments alone is bad enough but mental health issues should have been a huge red flag.

Unless, as some pointed out, they actually wanted to hire this individual as a mascot or something, which created the problems recounted in the post.

Of course involuntary commitment to a mental institution seems to be practically preordained. I wonder if the individual might be able to deal with working as a gardener or something with low levels of intellectual challenge to unbalance the mind and isolated from other people who would be free of an SJW scold? Manual stoop labour exists in virtually any work environment, so there is one pace to isolate SJWs and mental cases who are identified in your work environment (until you can release them).

A meritocracy is problematic? I really lack the means to fully comprehend SJWs.

@58: fantastic post.

I'll have to remember differently sane. Of course, there are those who might suggest that that applies to me. Ah well, can't have everything.

"My team was 5 women and one man: two of us trans, three women of color".

I've been meaning to ask: Why is women of color OK but colored women isn't?

I wonder if the word "eunuch" triggers MTF trannies.

Seriously, this whole "trans" thing is a scam. These losers are eunuchs, which caused untold amounts of trouble in history wherever they were found.

@141  On this rare occasion I agree with you.  I once worked with someone who was asked what he was going to do that day, and would say something nonsensical.  He made a new code listing morning and afternoon, with no measurable improvements in between.  He accomplished nothing for quite a few weeks before he was let go.

In the mean time I was trying to decompile our most useful text editor and port it to a different OS.  (This was before we got vi.)  I quit that project when a useless Iranian employee deleted my most up-to-date work without either saving or asking me.  He was fired not long after.  Damn you, Achmed.  It's too much to ask that you got deported for marriage fraud, but I hope you did.

Many years later I wrote a pipeline of grep, awk and sed scripts to extract data we needed from the HTML output of some other app.  I was re-assigned and a Lubavitcher was given my stuff to do... something.  I never did find out what he was assigned to do, as he never understood my script let alone improved on it.

Sounds kind of like the first guy.

FWIW, the Lubavitcher was so orthodox he wouldn't touch my Nature Valley Oats & Honey granola bars even when he had nothing else to eat because they didn't have the proper kosher symbol on them.  And they wonder why nobody likes them.

@158  Dammit, that's TWICE IN ONE THREAD that I have to agree with you.

"They wanted to offer me a job. They had just created a team called Community & Safety, charged with making GitHub more safe for marginalized people and creating features for project owners to better manage their communities."

Holy Shit! (Or is that SHeIt!?) They brought all of this on themselves! GitHub created the Community & Safety team?

What company in their right mind DOES THAT?

@149-The point is, if you Notice someone is not the sex they claim, either explicitly or implicitly,you are not allowed to say so. And you bite your tongue rather than ask. Just like you're not supposed to "out" someone who's secretly gay.

I think.

We had a similar individual on our team. Caused all sorts of trouble during election season, interjected politics into unrelated conversations, then get angry when anyone disagreed with her. She took a sick day the day after the election in November. And got laid off not-to-long ago. Heh.

We are also suffering by the political influence of the sociery and awareness of the elections.

Those two interviewers are male engineers, female-left SJW, apparently.
