Women in tech

What could possibly go wrong?
I took up space, used my sexuality as a tool, and demanded attention. These were the survival skills that I had learned to harness as a ticket out. And these are the very same skills that have allowed me to succeed professionally and get access to tremendous privilege. I have paid a price for some of the games that I have played, but I can’t deny that I’ve gained a lot in the process.

I have also come to understand that my survival strategies were completely infuriating to many geeky white boys that I encountered in tech. Many guys saw me as getting ahead because I was a token woman. I was accused of sleeping my way to the top on plenty of occasions. I wasn’t simply seen as an alpha — I was seen as the kind of girl that screwed boys over. And because I was working on diversity and inclusion projects in computer science to attract more women and minorities as the field, I was seen as being the architect of excluding white men.
The remarkable thing isn't that SJWs engage in these reprehensible behaviors. It's that so few of them are able to understand why the very people they are attacking, and whose lives they are attempting to destroy, could possibly object to them doing so.

They are just like cops - they can't understand why they earn the hate. To them, screwing people over, particularly a target group, is as natural and justifiable as breathing. They, and the cops, have no conscience or soul. Yeah, yeah, I know "they are not all like that" but enough of them are to make the generalization valid.

Skimming through that article, she almost sees that everything she believes is fundamentally wrong, but can't break away from her proglodyte fantasies. She also uses the telling construction "I was seen"; she did a lot of shit, and knows it, but still demonstrates the universal human aversion to admitting "I was wrong."

You are all idiots. John Smith is the biggest asshole . Cops go through a lot dealing with all you ass wipes out there. They have to be on guard constantly to make sure they come home to their families. I'd like to see you get your lazy ass out there and do police work. They need to be respected by all. These black people disrespect them all the time. When the cop told this one mouthy ass bitch to hang up the phone and step out of the car she refused and cussed him out. He told her several ties in a respectable manner and finally he pulled her out and told her to sit down and again she mouthed of AND DIDN'T DO WHAT SHE WAS TOLD SO HE FORCED HER DUMB ASS DOWN. The cops don't know if they have a gun or what, when people act like the dumb ass disrespectful bitched they are then the cops don't know what they are doing and so they will do whatever it takes to make them comply.

Shut up, troll. Go vomit your concern somewhere else.

PROGLODYTE!!

Pure genius! Could it be the next cuckservative?

Oh, he’s a typical proglodyte.

A what?

You know, a brown nosing white submissivist.

What’s that?

He thinks we should import brown people in order to worship them as gods.

Why??

Because doing so will help progress society toward a new stone age.

@john smith

That was an incredibly insightful comment

@Me

The one decent NYC cop I know actually agrees with john smith, so shove off creep.

Mike said...

She may not understand the why, but in the land of blind SJWs, she's the one-eyed queen if this is truly how she feels:

I am deeply concerned that the people whose values and ideals I share are achieving solidarity through righteous rhetoric that also produces condescending and antagonistic norms. I don’t fully understand my discomfort, but I’m scared that what I’m seeing around me is making things worse.

Did Adria Richards write that?

Ceerilan said...

What she tries to call privilege is the result of years of hard work by the geeky people she calls betas. These are people who have been picked because of their expertise created by hard work. Hard work that many of their contemporaries failed to produce...so they're not picked up by the silicon valley companies...invisible. These men have staked their futures and social status on this ability. The term beta comes up because these men are aware about their lack of ability with women. Work status is the only thing they have for that, and doesn't care about taking it away from them.

In college, the author was a brash woman using sex as a tool to get ahead who had the audacity to say these men's effort should effectively be meaningless. The men didn't attack her out of not seeing their privilege...they attacked her to protect their own societal value.

Meanwhile Christopher Cantwell goes into detail about a toxic relationship. Did he fail to read the dosage recommendations for the red pill?

Nerds are gross though.

Eventually I took her to New York to meet my parents. This was a legitimate point of contention because we both have pretty severe views about child abuse and there was some spanking in my house and I had a few more sever altercations with my father when I was in my teens.

What a feminized cuckold!

"I took up space, used my sexuality as a tool, and demanded attention....."

And all done with a face that only a mother could love. For a women who is lacking in beauty she truly has an inflated sense of her standing in the looks dept.

Who came up with the idea that if you work hard and build something, your efforts get demeaned as "privilege?" This concept, more than anything, should spell the downfall of the regressive left.

And don't talk to me about "values and ideals" if you're a regressive leftist. Because of those "values and ideals" aren't PC, they get banned from the workplace or you get sued. Ask any bakery. Or Brendan Eich.

Butt Naked set the tone when he said ( in reference to successful business people) " You didnt build that"
Not a surprising statement coming from the mouth of a loser fag.

Well duh, the Left came up with it as their latest justification for taking that wealth and giving it to someone else.

dc.sunsets said...

I, I, I, I,...what a narcissistic bitch!

Privilege, Privilege, Privilege,..., is it just me or does reading crap like that make anyone else want to kill something?

Erynne said...

Sometimes I'm not sure if it's a victory for SJWs to have Vox read this kind of crap. That being said, the tech field is one place where the advancement of someone who does nothing technical is ridiculous. She is bringing literally nothing to the field and can't see why that's detrimental. She has no respect, at all, for geeky white boys, and describes her employment as survival. Yeah, uh, survival in tech should be nothing more than competency with tech. Her entire stance is parasitical.

haus frau said...

I read Cantwell's warning about his crazy ex. I believe this makes 6 aborted children by multiple women for him now. It's difficult to have sympathy for a man with such persistently piss poor judgement. Yes, warn the world about this crazy slut but he is the one choosing to screw these kinds of women without a condom.

Nate73 said...

I'm a bit shocked there are people on here that listen to cantwell. He's smart but he wouldn't last 5 minutes with Vox on his show before hanging up and calling him a name.
