Were using discord at work...I noticed sometimes I can hear some mattes voice even if I have my phone icon muted...Makes me feel that it might also make me hearable even with my mic muted too.. I dont trust that thing

They're also fantastic for media production work, no doubt about it.

 

Seriously? Why? I though that was once true and now just a myth.

Do ppl willfully switch from win 7 to 10? My experiences with win 10 is that its like a windows 7 where they removed your power to choose and make stuff hard to access (probably with the mentality "lets not scare dumb users")

This just arrived in my facebook timeline:

 

I think this kinda of stuff is the right way to do it.

 

BUT, I think parents should show those stuff on the internet to theyr sons..I dont like the idea of schools/govern "educating" children, thats too dangerous. Children are too susceptible and there are lots of coconuts out there (In 3rd world countries govern is number one problem and education systems basically ruined). In this case I agree with the content, but what when they do stuff id consider an absurd?

 

School function is to "teach" (knowledge everyone agrees with, even history shouldnt be taught as absolutely unquestionable true, cause not everyone agrees with it either), not "educate" (kinda ambiguous, but do you get what I mean right? Principles and morals should come from family WHILE we live in a society where the individual is highly dependent of it (its the family you turn to when youre fucked by society, theyre the ones backing you up)).

Due culture standards, women are not inclined to pursue stem fields.

Due less women in stem fields, a prejudice is created towards women in stem fields (what the hell is a girl doing here)

 

I think we talked about that on other thread, that prejudice is not against "women" specifically, its against anything that dont fit our standards, its the same prejudice against a handsome model looking guy, or an extremely muscular guy, it doesnt fit -> not the safe option.

 

Show me a study comparing the bias of interviewers against : standard women, fat ugly geek women, handsome model looking guy, overly muscular guy.

If everyone has the same portfolio quality, the priority goes:

fat ugly geek women > handsome model looking guy or standard women(cause from my POV, the standard for women today IS overly carrying about appearances) > overly muscular guy ( cause we just take them for brainless, god knows why)

 

It happens to blacks, it happens to men pursuing dance careers, etc..

 

 

What I want to know is how ppl want to solve this?

 

I just cant see how trying to force this can work. Imagine a company that was totally bias against women. Say a women who was to be rejected, due feminism solution X got the job. Do any girl actually would want to work on that company? Knowing they would not normally hire you? Can you imagine the situation you would be in? Youd be there against theyr will, on a place that dont have respect for you.. I want she to put the company in her blacklist, boycott, never support, pursue better company, be an entrepreneur (create your own company, be successful, buy that company that rejected you, fire everyone, rainbows and marshmallows).

 

The solution is deconstructing biases, thats a hell of a task.

 

To me its all about how do you present reality to children, parents responsibility (not professors, not the politicians,  you cant give this kind of responsibility to ppl who screw society over more than anyone). If you see a girl playing with cars you dont go screw her head saying "thats not girly", if you see a boy dancing you dont screw his head saying "thats not macho". You teach children that they need to fight for what they want (just dont step over other ppl), you teach them to not depend on bad ppl, to have principles, to stand by them, to not subjugate yourself.
Quite the long term solution.
