The more interesting question is why no one seems to have a problem encouraging more men to go in to nursing, but so many people seems to think encouraging more women to enter tech is going to destroy the world...

SJWs have pretty much destroyed the Mozilla project.

So there is a precedent that shows the damage SJWs can do.

The sort of adolescent behavior you're defending not only contributes nothing, but is actively harmful to any project.

Absolutely wrong.

When you respect those that have contributed something (= Meritocracy) you get contributors that feel respected and are therefore willing to contribute.

If you turn it into some SJW-convention where every idiot can get brownie-points based on his race, gender or perversion, then you may attract a lot of useless SJWs but you will lose the actual contributors because they no longer get respected because they are not "diverse" enough.

Get it through your head: We don't want you, we don't need you, you are parasites that are poison in every organization. You are not just useless, you are actually harmful.

Go away and die.

You have to stop trying to argue rationally with SJWs. All they want is to take over stuff (companies, projects, anything of value) that other people have created.

They are unable to create anything on their own, that is why they need Affirmative Action, etc.

Don't think of them as rational beings - they are parasites, basically con-men (or con-women). Do you argue with con-men? Do you think arguing with work? These are fundamentally immoral people.

Forcing existing cultures to change just because you want to be a part of them is nothing short of tyranny. 1) you will be resented. 2) the culture you eventually join will not the be culture that existed at the start. On the other hand, if you join a culture and learn to live within it, it will change for the better simply due to your interactions within it. The more people like you that join, the more the culture changes organically, with no one being forced.


If we want to see a project that has been ruined by SJWs, we only need to look at Mozilla.

Yet somehow Linux managed to become the quasi-standard for embedded projects, servers and supercomputers and also runs about two thirds of smartphones.

And somehow you think that by turning Linux into a second Mozilla, which has been taken over by SJWs is a good idea?

Firefox was quite successful before the SJWs came - now it is slowly bleeding marketshare.

Open source works best when it is a community. While there are millions of little projects that are buy one person alone, all the big ones (Linux, BSD, LibreOffice, GIMP, KDE, Gnome, GNU tools, GCC, LLVM, Inkscape, EMACS, Vi... the list is huge) are the result of many people collaborating.

And many of them (like Linux, Emacs, gcc, most GNU tools) were started by White men working on their own without any community whatsoever.
Even when Linus created git, he started it on his own and only let the community work on it later. - Even though he was already famous and would have had no problems of finding a community right from the start, it was better to work alone at first.

There is absolutely zero barriers for anybody to start their own, better projects.

But that is exactly what the SJWs NOT want to do. [b]They don't want to create anything, they want to take over things that were created by others.[/b]

They are parasites, plain and simple.

People are always available for work in the past tense.
