What the fuck is gender studies anyway?

Do they also teach Astrology at US universities?


Something for people who are afraid of math and their shadow to "study" at Uni . . .

Gender studies is basically just one of the several forms of victim identity politics training for disaffected liberals. There's also ethnic studies (fill in the race or ethnicity that you want), American studies (on the outs now because well indoctrinated victims don't like to think of themselves as Americans), and in some places queer studies (exactly what you think it means, because in some places it's just not enough to have a department of gender studies).

America's publically funded schools, colleges and universities would be well-served to eliminate every department that ends in the word "studies" and fire all of the faculty and administrators therein.

Social marxists have a higher moral and behavioral standard and goals than the _____ Studies crowd.

Right, social marxists only want to set up a totalitarian state that murders it's own people when it's not outright seeing them as expendable currency.

Gender studies sounds nothing more than institutionalized misandry.

Funny that teaching racism and misandry is 'Politically Correct'.

In there beliefs, one cannot be racist against whites or sexist against males.

A long article regarding some of the news related to James Damore's recently filed lawsuit:

http://thefederalist.com/2018/01/10/19- ... vironment/


Quote:
19 Insane Tidbits From James Damore’s Lawsuit About Google’s Office Environment

Employees were allowed to award those who spoke out against Damore's memo 'peer bonuses' monitored by the 'Google Recognition Team.'



Rachel Stoltzfoos By Rachel Stoltzfoos
JANUARY 10, 2018

This article quotes communications that contain obscene language.

The lawsuit James Damore filed against Google on Monday provides a fascinating glimpse into the way the company and many of its employees see the workplace in terms of a demographic hierarchy, and what happens to those who diverge from the consensus view.


Details from diversity training sessions, accounts of alleged reverse discrimination, and screenshots of internal communications on company forums and message boards in the lawsuit cast the company culture as extremely hostile to employees with unpopular opinions, especially heterosexuals, men, white people, and those who hold conservative views.

Damore and another former Google employee, David Gudeman, allege the company discriminates against white male conservatives, and maintains illegal diversity quotas for hiring managers. Damore was fired last year after an internal memo he wrote positing that men and women have biological differences that affect their work preferences and abilities was leaked and went viral.

In screenshots laid out in the lawsuit, “Googlers” as they call themselves, talk openly of blacklisting and purging the company of employees whose views or identities are deemed outside the bounds. Employees were allowed to award those who spoke out against Damore’s memo “peer bonuses” — a company kudos of sorts monitored by the “Google Recognition Team.”

“We want to be inclusive of people not ideas” one employee identified as Alon Altman wrote in a message included in the lawsuit. Damore says that sentiment was backed up at an Inclusion and Diversity Summit he attended in June, when he was told by Google employees the company does not value “viewpoint diversity,” but actively strives for “demographic diversity.”


The lawsuit succeeds in suggesting a sharply divisive worldview pervades Google, in which those deemed worthy of tolerating (women, minorities, transgenders, etc.) are to be protected and agreed with at all costs — the recipients of unbridled compassion and understanding — while those who fall outside the bounds are to be ruthlessly disowned and expelled. Here are 19 of the most notable and bizarre snapshots of corporate culture laid out in the lawsuit.


Continued at above link

Some of the stuff seems bizarre while other parts of it seem like outright harrasment of Damore (and others) that was excused or even condoned by Google management.

I did read through some of the lawsuit that was filed (it was long...I think 160+ pages so I did not get through all of it).

One thing that stuck with me was this:
Damore (and others) seem to spend an inordinate amount of time at work on things that to me do not seem work related.
Some of them were these seminars and meetings but a lot of it seems like email back and forth.

I personally will confess that I have spent time at work talking politics and other non-work related topics with my co-workers. It is probably unavoidbale.
BUT, if you know that your workplace is somewhat hostile to those whose politics might be conservative, then its probably best to avoid discussing that subject at work. And if you do discuss politics then make sure you only do so with people that you trust.

AND FOR PETE'S SAKE, AVOID PUTTING THIS STUFF INTO EMAILS!
Why do people feel the need to put everything into their emails or IMs?
First of all, that shit is all open to review by your employer.
And secondly, your emails and IMs at work are generally subject to subpoena should you or your employer be sued by someone.
(Ok, that doesn't apply if your name is Clinton and you can house all your work emails on your own server, but most of us cannot get away with that).

Found a new slogan for Google as 'do no evil' is no longer a thing.

This video is at an event at Portland State.

James Damore was there, but was not the speaker at the point that this video kicks in.
The speaker is actually another professor, the wife of Bruce Weinstein (both he and his wife formerly taught at Evergreen State)
