this conversation has come up on facebook with a high school friend of mine.
they said "this person has many good points." i've said, "i can't even bother."
for their sake and the feeling of not wanting to ceed the internet to the wrongs, i feel compelled to respond. ( i haven't. ) the other warring thought i have is that the sole fact this has spread is because of privilege.
when people talk about wage inequality, about harmful work environments, about the white male network of connections, ... it goes nowhere. ( rare recent exception, internal complaints about uber. )
but! some fragile man complains about diversity!? everyone is talking about it, and the ceo of google is canceling their vacation to "deal with it."
really, it's all a bit over the top.
my high school friend wants me to refute point by point. why even bother? the premise of even having the "conversation" is wrong.
