Why should we be inclusive when we're not treated the same?

Aug 31, 2018 14 Comments

Serious question: everyones expected to be inclusive from a societal perspective (which I agree and enforce wherever I can), but a lot of my coworkers express "preferences" in partnerships, business, hiring, personal preferences in friends and many other aspects in life. It bothers me a lot because it peddles inequality regardless of ur culture and race. Why is that ok?

    The very reason that “inclusiveness” is being pushed is directly as a result of this subconscious bias. That’s the norm that’s being improved.

    That’s like saying: others bully so why should I be well behaved? If everyone thought that way, civilization would have ended before it ever took off. There are people who don’t act fairly. Doesn’t validate you wanting to act like a turd too.

      No not at all. Being an educated Silicon Valley professional, you should know better. It's a valid question of why there should be different measuring sticks. Dick.

  • I want to be inclusive because I have those values, they’re not imposed on me. It’s just common sense for most people on great teams. Consider changing teams if that isn’t your experience.

      By that logic, if you're straight...you're a sexist in need of re-education.

      Damn, I'm guilty.

    I feel you, bro

    People kill everyday. I feel we should be allowed to kill also. Like, on a national holiday. Or something.

    We can call it The Purge.

    Inclusiveness should be advocated but never enforced. You never can make anyone like others by issuing an order. Some people are just crap, including their "culture" so including them is self-damaging. Our society is very stupid, it often acts upon buzzwords instead of reason. I have no solution to society stupidity, sorry

    I have learnt to accept humans are flawed. They can't be fair . Be true to yourself, represent yourself. Don't worry too much about others.

    I get the netizen justice here for asking a legit question, but I think inconsistency doesn't do anyone any good
