I'm sorry what? what does that means?

It's nonsense. I'm all for inclusion and diversity. Hell, I'm even down with taking the knee in football if the footballers all want to take part, but to enforce this in the workplace is just insane.

It won't go through. Basically it was an idea by one of our "diversity leaders" in a quarterly meeting. There was a lot of positive reaction, but I've heard that people have complained (non white people in fact) and it would be impossible to enforce.

It is insane that these people think the path to inclusiveness is to silence everyone with a differing opinion. Hands down the most hypocritical and dangerous people on the planet.
Right. Way more dangerous that the Taliban, CCP, DPRK, Russia, etc. Why the fuck does the US waste money on defending itself against bad regimes when it should be focused on these people instead?

Wow...out of curiosity I just read the Other Sites thread on this.

I haven't been there for a long time. I didn't realise that being a white man makes me bigoted and inherently evil.

I'm heading out to jump off a cliff to rid the world of such scum.
That ’site’ is a haven for shitheads.

That's fucking ridiculous.

Where do you live? Can you get fired for refusing to do so?

Lol. South England, but I don't need to worry. It won't work and I'm about to change employers anyway.

Get vaccinated
I just wanted to point out that he fashions himself a muckraker, but he's not. He's out for number one. Hence all the clickbait and inaccurate reporting while he parades around as some kind of warrior for the little guy.

They talk about toxic power dynamics and all that, but what is it when a top gaming journalist with zero accountability torpedoes a startup without giving them an opportunity to respond?

I love how he'll of course ignore pointing out that "how can a game be good with no diversity!?". When of course games of the past (and current) that come from Japan are all made by 99% Japanese devs.
It has become incredibly obvious to me that what these people mean when they say "diverse" is actually "people who aren't caucasian / men". I can't remember where but a couple of years ago I remember seeing a photoshoot described as "diverse". Said "diverse" group pictured was a racially and sexually homogenous group of black women. Following that line of logic a Japanese studio is diverse because most of its members are Japanese.

If we start doing that, we become just as bad as Resetera.
