A female colleague regularly wears "female is future" T-shirt in the office. I am fine with woman empowerment but this is divisive. How is this acceptable? What do women of blind think?

Edit: fixed a typo

    Just wear a “male is future” shirt. Since a “female is future” is accepted office attire they should not have a problem with your shirt. #equality

      Saying “Female is the future” doesn’t imply a future without males in it, of course. By specifying “Female” here the goal is to bring the highlight to the issues women face in male-dominated industry. Just like for BLM: saying black lives matter doesn’t mean that “only black lives matter”, its goal is just to highlight the group (and their struggles) that are under more immediate impact of systematic and nonsystematic racism.

      If your neighbor’s house next door is burning and the fire truck rushes over to put off the fire, do you go to then telling them it’s unfair that they’re only giving your neighbor their attention? And that you too should matter to them as well?

      No! They need to help the one with the burning house first!

      Same old crap. Men have issues too.
      If female is future is justified, so is saying male is future.

      I agree. Men have issues too. But does bringing up the highlight to female issues invalidate the fact that males have issues as well?

      It doesn’t. If you think men are having issues bring it up to the table in the form of a healthy dialogue rather than confronting others who are fighting for other issues.

      Where were you when feminists invalidate issues men bring up? Like then fighting against having an international men's day.
      You'd have been complaining of sexism of the genders were reversed

    How is it divisive?

    Because there is no female in your future?

      Thanks for implying that "male is future" is not divisive either by the same logic!
      That's probably not what you think about male is future, but thanks anyway.

      OP says decisive (whatever that means in this context). Not divisive - unless he changed it.

      I replied to another comment from you. You’re right there are a ton of issues there and one person/group can’t campaign for all of them.

      If you have issues you want to campaign for, please go ahead! Just don’t try to invalidate others ... different groups can be working on different things, and collectively we can achieve progress!

      If there is racism against blacks because they are more likely to be arrested or killed, is there sexism against men because men after more likely to be arrested/killed?!!!!

      I think Desitechie just need to utilize a bit more of his brain and be slightly more curious to actually read and do some thinking before spitting out those generalizations. It must be so exhausting to be so that narrow-minded and 1-dimensional like that.

      Can't come up with a logical answer, so let's insult!!

      I tried. Your replies are rigid and you’re in it not to have a productive conversation and exchange opinions but to score a point/win an argument to feel good about yourself.

      On every thing out there you can always bring anecdotal examples of cases that went wrong. What’s the point? There is a bigger picture here. Have you honestly tried to have a conversation with the affected group and understand their pain and struggles? Or you look up the extreme cases of when the execution goes wrong or some anecdotal example that feeds into your confirmation bias and use that to conclude that all BLM or all MeToo movement is bullshit?

      Why don’t you think of all the times a female professional is described as an obnoxious b**** if she’s firm about an opinion at work while men are described as strong leaders when they do the same?

      Or brilliant female TAs being ridiculed by male students just because they’re girls and don’t fit the topic?

      Why do you think of that extreme case when some extreme feminist group did something negative? That’s extreme and not the norm but this is what gets emphasized by the media ... but the other stories that are the dominant theme and don’t stir peoples emotions don’t get covered. The best way is to have an honest sincere conversations with your female or black friends and family about the subtle ways of racism or sexism they face that are too small to be reported, but with time they start accumulating and become a huge burden on that persons shoulder and sometimes break them.

      I’m typing on the phone in the train so I apologize if what I wrote sounds like a word salad. Also I apologize for the insult in my previous comment. I could’ve done better

      To answer all your questions, I care more about preventing false accusations than punishing true accusations. Blackstone formulation.
      Same with reverse discrimination. Just because some group is on average more discriminated, is no excuse for the weaker members of the do called privileged group to be discriminated against.
      Lastly, I'm sounding like I just care about scoring points because of the double standards that never get called out. Like feminists forcing a college to cancel international men's day event. If that's fair, I feel equally justified in attacking every dollar in feminism.
      I'm the author of the article linked above. It's just my concerns with the BLM movement.

      @op and LinkedIn please go talk to them and try to understand where they’re coming from. Don’t ask them to justify themselves just be genuinely curious about them. I hope you will understand someday and be more compassionate.

      My internship supervisor when I was a mechanical engineer back in Texas came from NASA JPL and had a PhD from CalTech. It was so sad how people would think the opposite, both at the same company and externally.

      Women has to do a lot of extra effort just to exit the circles of biases formed around them.

      You seem to bet a very pleasant person to deal with. Wow!

      Yes of course there will be people abusing the system every now and then.

      I just don’t understand why there is so much resistance to just putting yourself in their place and understand their struggles.

      Calm down please. Thank you and have a beautiful day!

    1. Email HR about women is future shirt. Ask if "gender x is future" is violation of policy.
    2. HR, of course, says no. (When did they ever accuse women of sexism).
    3. Now wear male is future t shirt.
    To those who complain, show the email from HR 😂😂😂😂😂😂

    I'm female, and don't get it too. I once tried to explain my perspective to a few female colleagues and received a waterfall of accusations of being against women empowerment and similar sht.
    In reality I'm all about equality and glad our society moves towards it, but hey, I don't get why future has to be "female", I kinda like both. Why do we even have to be gender specific about future goals or any other things, as it only helps to grow this gap in equality.

    Stop the crap about the problems women face. Unless you're a women born in very orthodox Muslim countries, or even in poverty in developing countries, women are WAY MORE privileged than men!
    So shut the crap!!

      So you're basically saying: Because some people would be overly sensitive to a similar situation if the gender was reversed, you should also be overly sensitive to this situation? Don't be a fucking snowflake; try caring about things that actually affect you.
