The formula is simple and concise for the extremist globalist lobby bent on removing individual rights- completely discredit a set of opinions and beliefs in recalibrating the parameters the normalcy.
Nowhere is this intolerable and dangerous thought experiment blended into everyday life on a more frequent scale than behind the disingenuous walls of the contemporary university campus, where reality and free thought are subject to strict traveling sanctions rivaling the Soviet policies of entrance into the USSR during the height of the Cold War, as militant feminists patrol the front gates. In this dystopian environment in spawning the basic fabric of complete control over an individual, minds are shaped through merciless indoctrination, and the very idea of civil debate is left as a tattered flag at half mast, pathetically waving in the slightest breeze of discontent.
In the most recent attack on reason, a University of Washington lecturer attempting to logically explain the low percentage of US women employed as software engineers, was almost immediately ideologically tarred and castigated in a similar manner to the infamous James Damore controversy at Google. The Seattle Times gives off the impression of satisfaction for the backlash in publishing the headline “Why don’t women code? A UW lecturer’s answer draws heat”, as the mainstream journalistic champion for Liberalism reports on a single point of view and reaction to the academic essay.
Stuart Reges, a computer science lecturer at UW for 14 years, made the unfortunate mistake of attempting to encourage dialogue on a sensitive and important topic by employing sensible arguments and statistics. Even though software companies are offering incentives to become coders, the numbers just don’t make sense. To his dissenters, he was immediately behind 0 and 2 in the count and facing Randy Johnson in his prime, by simply existing as a white male within the context of the insane university environment, and completely defying the trends of his colleagues by leaning conservative. Imagine that, there is the now the faintest ray of hope in knowing that not all college professors and self-aggrandizing intellectual bullies, who expect nothing less than total conformity.
The third strike on a nasty slider at 91 mph, was his final conclusion based on biological and sociological factors that most women are not interested in writing and parsing code. Grab the pitchforks and torches!
While the tone of the writing constantly supports the effort to employ more female software engineers and gives insightful perspective to the tech world, the harshest of critics are calling for Reges to be terminated and banished from UW. Commentators are even going as far as to throw words around such as “misogynist” and “bigot”, as the obligatory 2018 reaction to an opposing viewpoint is to first recklessly politicize the core premise with raw emotions, and finally assassinate the character of the individual. Of course, they contribute nothing to the debate or solutions to the issue.
There is simply no room for discussion for those who choose not to listen, and the double dose of hypocrisy only serves to convolute an immutable intellectual crises. The Seattle Times story also notes that a UW professor studying the alleged gender disparity in tech concluded that an office makeover featuring the trading out of Star Trek paraphernalia and electronic gaming for art and outdoor decor, would promote a spike in females rushing to join the ranks of software engineers. Yikes!
James Damore was ultimately fired for providing Google with a telling dose of reality in the ill-fated memo and not what the corporate brass wanted to hear. Similarly, in the case of Reges, the still employed lecturer utilizes the known laws of the universe in an attempting to explain a disturbing employment trend in the tech world, but the minority refuse to listen. Apparently, the facts of science and math only serve extremists when forwarding their agenda. (One interesting point that has been tossed around is that a study showed that women in countries of the highest gender equity were less likely to pursue careers in STEM fields, than those living in more rigid cultures.)
Maybe, the majority of women in the US are intrigued by other employment fields or want to raise families, rather than coding the next security patch for a software company. Too many times in this world, a square peg is forced into a circle. But we all know regardless of the answer, it is all on the shoulders of the scapegoat of the 21st century, the white male.
