Milk and Cigarettes

Rambles about stuff I like.

An unfathomable cunt.

If there’s one thing that pisses me off, it’s people who think they’re standing up for what’s right, when really, they’re being weasels.

Case in point: this dumb cunt.

TLDR goes like this: A feminist crusader is at a tech conference, where she overhears a couple guys make a joke about ‘dongles’ and ‘forking.’ (Dongles and forking are tech terms that can be made into any number of obvious puns.) Naturally, she overreacts in an hysterical manner – instead of talking to the guys that made the joke and asking them to stop (or, y’know, she could stop eavesdropping) she gets security to kick them out of the conference. Later, one of the men (with three kids) gets fired from his job. The bitch in question then goes onto say, “Yesterday the future of programming was on the line and I made myself heard.”

First of all, the ‘future of programming’ was not on the line. If she had done nothing instead of her histrionics, programming would still be continuing today. Further, this actually harms the very ideal this cunt thought she was defending, namely, ‘including women in tech.’ Did her actions make it more likely for men to include women in the future, or less likely? If all the men at tech conferences know that they can be escorted out at any time if a woman doesn’t like their jokes, why on Earth would they go about including women? If including women makes it more likely that men’ll get kicked out (and possibly lose their job!), what incentives do they have to include women?

Further, this bitch claims she stood up for women’s rights! No, no you didn’t. No person has the right to never be offended. You don’t have a right to “feel” safe – it may be your preference, but it sure isn’t a goddamn right.

Finally, her rationalization for the whole thing; 

I saw a photo on main stage of a little girl who had been in the Young Coders workshop. I realized I had to do something or she would never have the chance to learn and love programming because the ass clowns behind me would make it impossible for her to do so.

That’s the worst rationalization I’ve ever heard. Jokes about ‘dongles’ make it IMPOSSIBLE for a women to learn tech?! Fuck off with this shit… Read up about Sophie Germain, you’ll find that women who are passionate about a male-dominated subject, and who are talented, will find a way to get their voice heard. 

God, dumb cunts like this make me mad. I’ll be glad once the intellectually bankrupt movement known as feminism implodes on itself.
