That's ridiculous. There are so many exceptions that it does not even make sense to speak of 'rules'. And most rules a so fuzzy that they are no help at all. Best way to write is to learn each word like a vocable in a foreign language. Leave everyone alone who tries to tell you about 'rules', e.g. most teachers.
"for many Deaf people, every implanted child is a person stolen from their culture."
I'd say: Poke out their eyes. Then those people can enjoy not only one, but two cultures: The deaf and the blind. Should even out the numbers.
You might never use these for anything practical, but what you learn from them is invaluable. You need to constantly be learning new things.
In that case I would not learn such worthless stuff. Sorry, but 'you might never use these' is worthless in my book. When I feel the need to train my learning muscle it is stuff like OpenGL, video encoding, OpenMP. Stuff I can use and do with the languages I already know, but are new to me. Just learning a new programming language becomes sooner or later brainfuck. It is the illusion of doing something new, but without actually leaving ones comfort zone.
...yes, you are too old.
Might be. But I think this word is too subject-specific . The connection of 'female' and 'sexist' is IMHO better. Makes it clearer that women too can be sexists. This goes far too often under the radar.
Grovel in front of your Misstress.
Sales, marketing, management, office staff (secretaries, janitors, repair workers, someone to water the plants)
This might be true, but it is irrelevant. Or do you think if there is again a complaint 'waaahhhh.... not enough women in IT' sales, marketing or office staff is meant?
That's what I thought. So it is practically impossible to do it and erase all traces. In that case it should be fairly easy to prove or disprove her claims.... if this is allowed and not sexist to doubt her word.
companies that allowed this kind of behavior would find them selves lacking in a very large section of the talent pool.
Oh, really? I constantly hear: Very few women in IT. Not enough women here, not enough women there...so, so deep can this talent pool not be.
And every business will be better off, the fewer women are employed. No company needs female hate mongers, who pull the reputation of the company down to further her own agenda.
Interesting. In other words a typical feministic parasite. Meritocracy really must be evil. Makes it obvious that women are underachiever.
That's a sexist remark, you know?
Much less than her claim.
...and paints "Julie" in a bad light when she compares it to a strip-club and that she felt "unsafe".
It simply paints her as a female sexist.
Did a single creepy and jilted co-worker (who aggressively professed his love) remove her code? Is there a data trail to prove this one way or the other?
Did you ever try to rewrite the git history so that really no trace of a commit can be found? Sounds interesting. I would like to know how this can be done.
That being said, maybe she had some other more valid issues
Most likely she is already on the way to make them up.
