Actually, taser's aren't non-lethal.... they are just somewhat less lethal than guns.
Approximately out of every 3 people who has been tasered requires urgent medical aid to prevent death or other serious long-term complications.... Does that seem particularly "non-lethal" to you?
With that disclaimer out of the way, the three things that I believe need to eventually happen are:
And I am suggesting that those articles really need to just stop. News flash: the world isn't fair. Live with it.
Instead of bitching about the world not being as ideal as we want it to be, or clamouring at other people to do what is right, if we each just do our own part to try and make this world better, then in reality, that should be enough. Complaining that the person next to you or somebody else isn't pulling their share of social responsibility doesn't accomplish anything. Just live your life and try to be a good person that is kind to everyone, regardless of gender, race, or anything else. If that's not enough to make the world any better, harping at other people to improve their behaviour sure as hell won't be, which is really all that these kinds of articles do.
That's just an excuse to be apathetic about it, or worse... to even bother to try.
Instead of saying "oh, that's just not realistic", just take responsibility for your own actions and just fucking do the right thing. Anything else is just making excuses about why you shouldn't bother.
If things like gender are to genuinely supposed to not influence our reactions in the workplace, then we need to stop fucking focusing on them and accept people, men and women, for who they are, or whatever interests they happen to have that may, or may not, happen to direct them into a particular industry.
SX is a fork/mix of early Slackware Linux
You keep saying that, but there is no evidence to support that theory. While Apple had indeed previously worked on a fork of Linux called mkLinux before they released OSX, this was not actually a precursor to OSX (it may have been Apple's initial intention at the time to make it the OS for Macs, but this is not how things ultimately played out). Apple ultimately discarded the mkLinux project and instead evolved NeXTSTEP (also called OpenStep) into OSX near the turn of the century.
