Silicon Valley is Full Of Shit

From Penelope Trunk:
Silicon Valley is full of shit.
The feminist narrative of Silicon Valley makes me want to stab my eyes out. Sheryl Sandberg spent years convincing women that they should idolize her and try to emulate her by “leaning in.” She has since backtracked on her Lean In diatribe. And she acknowledges that working full time in Silicon Valley while you have kids is only marginally possible.
Which is why most big companies in the area pay for women to freeze their eggs. Which is of course less of a perk and more of an insult to women since we really have no idea if freezing eggs works, and women are giving up their most fertile years.
And you already know that Silicon Valley is all white and Asian. But did you know that people in Silicon Valley don’t care? A recent survey shows that 80% of workers in Silicon Valley think their company is diverse. Yet in reality only 4% of workers are black or Latino.

Yes, but they can virtue signal better than almost anyone.

Don't argue with a guy who buys ink by the ton,


with a guy who controls all the digital assets for a huge percentage of the internet; i.e. the heads of Facebook or Google.

There is no substitute for common sense.

Teams work best. Someone plays shortstop and someone plays CF.

If you have a family, it's no different.

TOTAL MATHEMATICAL equality can never be achieved because WOMEN HAVE BABIES, and while that's true something has to give.

If the man then stays home and plays catcher, WHO CARES?

It's still the team. But ladies, more than not WANT to be the caregivers, and therefore the other parts of the team must provide. If the lady wants to be out and have a career, then the team must abide and adapt or split. If the man wants to be the caregiver then ditto in the opposite direction.

PHYSICS in interpersonal dynamics

Not social justice.

Attempts to change the reality of physics will result, as WT sez, in humiliation and disaster

Long live Hari Seldon!
