GitHub is worried about bias against...

fashionable groups only!

Their new report on diversity is extremely concerned that they do not have enough "non-binary" employees, but...



their population is wildly "young-skewed"... but who cares! No one is awarding SJW-points for worrying about age discrimination.

And GitHub, why not report on the religious distribution of your population, or the political distribution? Aren't you worried that, say, Republicans or Orthodox Jews might be under-represented?

Of course you aren't! You are working damned hard to make sure that conservatives and the religiously orthodox are under-represented!

  1. I think this is the report that Gene is referring to:
    https://github.com/about/diversity

    (In my opinion and based solely on the report Github appears to be trying hard to make their company a fair place to work for women , racial minorities and the non-binary - if that deters 'conservatives and the religiously orthodox' - I guess they should look for work elsewhere)

    1. As is typical, in the hands of rob everything written here is re-written into a strawman he can have his way with. I said that GitHub is no doubt anxious, in the name of *inclusion*, to *exclude* conservatives and religiously orthodox, not that being fair *deterred* them! Although I am sure they must exist somewhere, I have never met a conservative or religiously orthodox person who objected to a workplace being *fair* for all. However, everyone who has ever worked at a place putting out such a report *knows* that it is not about *being fair*: it is about *favoring* certain preferred categories of people, and getting rid of those in non-preferred categories should they complain.

    2. And note how happy rob is that, in the name of "inclusion," conservatives and the religiously orthodox will be excluded from the workplace!
      Inclusion: 100% phony!

    3. And as for 'However, everyone who has ever worked at a place putting out such a report *knows* that it is not about *being fair*: it is about *favoring* certain preferred categories of people, and getting rid of those in non-preferred categories should they complain.'

      I have spent many years working at companies that I suspect you would categorizes in this way and can only say that i think they genuinely do want want 'be fair' - and (as you say above ) conservative and religiously orthodox people in those companies generally are supportive of this attempt at fairness.

      The more times I reread it it the weirder and more out of touch with reality your post comes across !

    4. "I have spent many years working at companies that I suspect you would categorizes in this way and can only say that i think they genuinely do want want 'be fair'..."

      The same way the Salem witch trial people wanted to be fair to the "witches."

      "conservative and religiously orthodox people in those companies generally are supportive of this attempt at fairness"
      No, rob, they are in fear of saying anything about the blatant unfairness, since they know they will be "Brendan Eich'ed" if they speak up.

      "weirder and more out of touch with reality"
      Yup, so "weird and out of touch with reality" that Silicon Valley did a whole episode showing I am correct: https://thefederalist.com/2018/04/19/latest-silicon-valley-episode-mocks-californias-anti-christian-animus/

    5. Is it possible that you are so stupid that you don't realize that parody only works when it is riffing on reality?

    6. So to prove something is true you don't have to point to any actual examples of that thing - you just have to point to parodies of the thing since 'parody only works when it is riffing on reality'? Brilliant !

    7. Listen asswipe, I wasn't "proving" my point: I was noting that *many, many* other people have noted the same thing, like the writers of Silicon Valley.
