    Good! More people should question superficial diversity.

    The closing comments in that blog are chilling. Part of the commitment to inclusion is to allow EVERY employee to bring their whole selves in conversation, and we have to be adult enough to understand that this sometimes means people are going to identify with views that may feel uncomfortable. But courage in the face of discomfort is the price for inclusion.

    You can't credibly pressure leaders to "take action" (code for expelling employees for thought-crime) and cloak your motives in the language of "inclusion". We exist. "We" as in the people you work alongside year after year, never knowing what our opinions really are, but would probably piss you off if you actually cared to ask. If you can't tolerate vigorous discussion at one of the world's leading edge companies where even enshrined thinking in culture, ethics and philosophy need to be tested to stay relevant, then go to Google: where evidently, everyone enforces a fixed mindset on the same ideas.

      Bringing one’s whole self in conversation is one thing, allowing harassment is quite another.

      It is no longer a “thought crime” when it is written down and shared on a company forum. That is commercial conduct, not thought.

      She just posted her thoughts on hiring and promotion practices on a company forum that invites employee input. I don't even share this woman's ideas, but if that now passes for "harassment" you don't understand the meaning of the word.

      One can’t make false statements that perpetuate a culture of harassment and then get a pass by claiming one is just bringing one’s whole self to the conversation.

      Dude, look around you. Have you ever contemplated the possibility that you might be the one taking up the wrong cause? That what you're advocating is harassing a woman out of a job for opinions you believe so strongly are false that she must be hounded out of her career?

      I'm just glad people are starting to observe just how far these people are willing to go to take out someone without a hint of guilt...even to the point of obliviousness about the effect their behavior is having on public perception about their methods and philosophy. It means we'll soon wonder how in the hell people allowed themselves to be intimidated by such an open and dogmatic fundamentalism.

      The statements I am talking about are objectively false, hence the attempt to defend them with fake science and anecdotal claims.

      We aren’t talking about mere differences of opinion or beliefs, we are talking about falsified hypotheses regarding women in the workforce.

      Let's say she is (i'm not inclined to sift through all of her comments). Her claims can be rebutted. Offering them doesn't make her a villain. She, however, is not the one taking up the cause of ruining someone's livelihood for having a wrong idea before being given a chance to come around to a sound one. That reaction reeks of insecurity, and has no place in an environment that truly values inclusion.

      Got it. You support her, because you both think you should be able to make whatever false statements you like without consequences in the workplace.

      How about doing a modicum of due diligence before making false statements that serve only to perpetuate a hostile work environment?

      Sounds like your beef really isn't with me, dude. You seem to think someone who takes issue with SJW fundamentalism must also be in alignment with whatever beliefs the target of your hate holds. If the remotest exposure to a loathesome idea is all it takes to get you calling for the expulsion of the person posing it, I don't know what else to tell you man. I can't help you.

      My beef is with people that make false statements in public under the guise of just sharing an opinion. When it is false, it is no longer an opinion.

    So these days, “inclusion” means excluding asian and white men?

      Yep. Inclusion means nonwhite women only.

      When someone talks about inclusion, he/she already puts himself/herself in a group out of other groups to be included; similarly, When someone talks about exclusion, he/she also already puts himself/herself in a group out of other groups to be excluded. So discrimination and separation already exist in one’s mind in this inclusion/exclusion talk show.

      If you have a true inclusive open mind, stop the talk show and treat everyone else equally regardless of differences in their sex, race, age, country of birth, and so on. Don’t treat a group specially in the name of making the specific group “more equal” than others

    Wow, and they’re not silencing one side or the other? It’s almost like being able to communicate and have diversity of opinion is a real strength

      Exactly why we should be intolerant of the SJWs. Kick them out.
