If she signed any paperwork that consented to the app being installed, she pretty much waived any rights to privacy. The article doesn't specify, but I'm sure she signed something that allowed her employers to do this. Is it an invasion of privacy? No. You can't consent to something, and then revoke consent later on.

Great link! I'm not saying women are inferior, but there is a difference to how men and women view and interact with the world around them. However, there's this belief that we are all fully equal in every way, and to suggest otherwise is misogyny. That's not true. We are different. We need to stop thinking of that difference as being inferior, and just move the hell on.

"It may be about reframing the goals of engineering research and curriculums to be more relevant to societal needs. It is not just about gender equity — it is about doing better engineering for us all." Well, Nilsson is correct, in part. It's not about gender equality.

The SJW acronym still has meaning. I think we can both agree that legitimate death and rape threats are unacceptable. That being said, people who could be considered social justice warriors are tremendously quick to flip out over any perceived threat to their personal narrative. They use underhanded, mob-like tactics to force their distorted definition of life on everyone else.

The best things in life go on sale sooner or later.
