Part of the demand for certain types of labor is doing things when they need them be done. I'd resist anything that looked like "let's all close shop so it isn't unfair" because that's just st a middle finger to time sensitive customers.

You are really invested in a status quo that spent a quarter billion on diversity initiatives at one company and failed to actually increase diversity.

You might want to not lump all anti-SJWs in with the alt right and ask if maybe some of them have a point.

I recently learned that 'thagomizer' has been unofficially adopted as the name for the spiky tail appendages of stegosaurid dinosaurs and they got the word from "The Far Side".

I meant morally wrong, not 'ineffective in achieving his goals'.

"Men in IT/CS are uniquely sexist" doesn't have much weight to it, and I can't say that I've heard a good reason to expect sex-parity to be equal, especially considering that female interest seems to start low and never rise. If we saw large (or equal) numbers of adolescent women interested and participating at early stages, then getting jobs and *leaving* the field, that would be more convincing to me.

Will the police now take a more active role in keeping these groups separated, rather than letting them fight? I've been surprised how hands-off they've been.
