No crime too small

This is why SJWADD was hard to finish writing. There are new SJW-related outrages occurring literally every single day! SJW convergence has gotten so out of hand in the game industry conferences that even women are now losing their jobs for the crime of inadvertently bumping up against the Narrative.
One of the largest video game industry conferences currently taking place in Poland has become subject to a controversy after its social media manager—and game developer—made a gaffe on Twitter. Her crime? Using the word “pretty” to describe other women.

Announcing a dialog between female game developers, Eve Poznan wrote: “Women in games is about to start! Gamedev ladies, join us and meet the pretty side of #gamedev” with a link to the event.

Her innocuous tweet was met with immediate fury from transgender game developers like No Man’s Sky’s Innes McKendrick, who assumed Poznan’s gender, and demanded that she “shut the hell up and listens to them.”

Other feminists in game development soon piled on, stating that Poznan’s use of the word “pretty” diminished their professional accomplishments.

Following the outrage, the conference organizer Jakub Marszałkowski‏ apologized for the incident, stating that “actions were taken for it not to happen ever again. GIC cares for inclusiveness” along a much longer explanation, which revealed the company’s decision to fire Poznan for her tweet.

Dear All, 

As the head of the Game Industry Conference (GIC) I am humbly asking you to accept my deepest apologies for what we all agree was unacceptable, disrespectful and sexist tweet and replies by our Twitter trainee. Her opinions are her own and are not representative of GIV or those of female developers, who attended the conference. 

I feel responsible for the conduct of all members of our team and I will do my best to make sure that a similar incident never happens again. To start with, the person who posted the sexist tweet will no longer be a part of the GIC organizational team. 

Please let me assure you that GIC is a respectful environment and we have zero tolerance for such remarks. I am sure that our guests can confirm that is truly the case. The inclusiveness programs that we have already put in place are also a testament to this. You can read more about them on our website. We will continuously work on making GIC more inclusive. And not because of this incident, but rather because this has been our goal for many years. 

With best regards,
Jakub
This is one reason why I no longer bother attending game industry conferences. What is the point? They are no longer about games or game development anymore, they are primarily concerned with diversity, equality, and inclusivity.

All monopolies obey a set of Iron Laws, one of which is that eventually they become black holes for resources, i.e., capital goes in, nothing of value comes out.

It's becoming obvious that the Equalist Cult is THE overarching monopoly, causing everything it touches to obey this Iron Law. It is the anti-Midas Touch, it turns gold into toxic waste.

Yeah, I wonder. It was presented as if the trannies were the offended, but I wouldn't be surprised if any pink-haired hippos were the worst.

Actual female programmers are so rare that they may be outnumbered by the trannies at this point. Software companies do hire women to do the other work, though, so a lot of them probably get sent to things like this. Not many programmers would want to go.

Home Depot Panics Over Millennials; Forced To Host Tutorials On Using Tape Measures, Hammering Nails

(snip)
Meanwhile, Scotts Miracle-Gro has been forced to start training classes to remind frustrated millennials, who can't seem to keep their flowers alive, that plants need sunlight to grow (apparently not a single millennial ever took biology in grade school). Commenting on the tutorials, a defeated VP of Corporate Affairs, Jim King, admitted "these are simple things we wouldn’t have really thought to do or needed to do 15 to 20 years ago"...sorry, Mr. King this is your life now.

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Co. has started offering gardening lessons for young homeowners that cover basic tips—really, really basic—like making sure sunlight can reach plants.



“These are simple things we wouldn’t have really thought to do or needed to do 15 to 20 years ago,” says Jim King, senior vice president of corporate affairs for Scotts. “But this is a group who may not have grown up putting their hands in the dirt growing their vegetable garden in mom and dad’s backyard.”



“They grew up playing soccer, having dance recitals and playing an Xbox,” says Scott’s Mr. King. “They probably didn’t spend as much time helping mom and dad out in the yard as their predecessors or their predecessors’ predecessors.”



Companies such as Scotts, Home Depot Inc., Procter & Gamble Co. , Williams-Sonoma Inc.’s West Elm and the Sherwin-Williams Co. are hosting classes and online tutorials to teach such basic skills as how to mow the lawn, use a tape measure, mop a floor, hammer a nail and pick a paint color.

Can't lay this one at the feet of the Millenials though, 'cause they didn't raise themselves (or maybe they did, which is still their parents' fault).

If they didn't get the experience that past generations have gotten from their childhoods, there are only two people in the world to blame, their worthless parents.

When you get right down to it, about 85% of what is wrong with the Millenial generation stems from the shitty upbringing given to them by their Boomer parents.

that goes back to the point i made a while back, that many, MANY parents can't be bothered to teach their own children anything. those "remedial skills" your news stories are talking about are things that should have been taught at home. somebody in shop class would have been taught to use a tape measure. i've never seen gardening or yard keeping classes.

it's very strange. especially considering modern "helicopter parenting". how do you spend a lot of time with your kids and still manage to not convey any useful information to them?

As to 'Eve Poznan' it's also telling. Poznań is a major Polish city. But as the world actually knows shit about us, nobody noticed she had a name of her city instead of surname in the Twitter handle. Hence 'Eve Poznan' was born - in reality Ewelina Wiznerowicz.

I'd blame women and the insane for nonsensical trivial problems before blaming young people.

On a related note, has anyone ever thought that the real goal of the SJW movement was creating the very racist and sexist white males they cannot quit crying about? If you don't have some preexisting baseline (say, because you're a sheltered rich white hipster) and then constantly do things that make everyone who isn't white and male seem like incompetent liabilities you might just start believing that, which would explain why a disproportionate number of SJWs engage in sex and race based crimes.

Those remedial skills are things typically taught by fathers. The problem isn't that parents "cant be bothered". It's that one half of the parents typically get ejected from their own homes and the lives of their own children, and it's the half that is usually most focused on seeing their kids grow up to become effective adults.

That's why these millennials are babies. They were raised exclusively by mothers.
