Polarity shift #3

In February of 2016, the BBC ran a fake news article about women being better software programmers than men based on a study which had not actually been published, and of which the authors did not intend to release the data. Of course, since that is bullshit, the BBC has changed the title of the article several times, and now it only claims that gender bias exists. Still bullshit. Or if there is gender bias, it is against nerdy Asian/Indian/white guys rather than Strong Women of Color. Below are some polarity shifted excerpts from the original article. Editorial notes in []:

Computer code written by white men has a higher approval rating than that written by women – but only if their gender is not identifiable, new research suggests.

The US researchers analyzed nearly 1.4 million users of the open source program-sharing service Github.

They found that pull requests – or suggested code changes – made on the service by white men were more likely to be accepted than those by women.

The paper is awaiting peer review.

This means the results have yet to be critically appraised by other experts.

….

However the team was able to identify whether roughly 1.4m were male or female – either because it was clear from the users’ profiles or because their email addresses could be matched with the Google + social network. [This sample is probably bad, the methodology sucks hard. Github by default does not identify gender so self-identifying gender means a lot of self selection of the sample, with results that could be skewed far from the norm.]

The researchers accepted that this was a privacy risk but said they did not intend to publish the raw data. [Emphasis mine, this is a huge red flag. They could have made the whole thing up.]

….

“Our results suggest that although white men on Github may be more competent overall, bias against them exists nonetheless,” the researchers concluded.

“I think we are going to see a resurgence of interest from white men in not only coding but all sorts of tech-related careers over the next few years,” she said.

“Knowing that white men are great at coding gives strength to the case that it’s better for everyone to have more white men working in tech.”

“It was white men who came up with almost every new idea in computer science in the first place, we owe it to them to make sure that we encourage and support white men in the software industry,” Dr Black added.

While not as egregious as my previous polarity shift, you could just as equally not expect anything so openly pro-white male to be published on any mainstream fake news site like the BBC. I actually missed this when it first came out, but a twitter link recently made me aware of it. You can see a complete take-down of the fake news here:

  • There are obvious issues in attempting to identify someone’s gender online
  • There are far more male users on GitHub then one could argue that men are in fact far better at coding because far more are actually doing it and many women are missing in action. Perhaps the small number of women who get involved are marginally better on average, but they would still be vastly outnumbered by men who are equally or more capable.
  • The media have cherry-picked data from the study which also showed clear bias towards those openly identifying themselves as female in many areas.

…..

Anyway, the real villain here is not Dr Black but of course the BBC who not only promote such propaganda, but exaggerate the “findings” of these studies to a greater extent than even those behind them. Using the wonderful Newssniffer site, we can see the BBC actually used a slightly more reasonable headline in its very first version of the article, which read “Women may write better code, study finds”. However, just 35 minutes later someone decided to remove the term “may”, thus throwing all caution out the window and moving fully away from journalism and into feminist activism instead.

Read the whole thing. It is an excellent exposé on the process of generating fake news in the MSM.

Polarity Shift #2

As I mentioned in my first polarity shift post, switching the targets in a leftist propaganda piece very easily demonstrates how utterly contemptible these people really are in terms they might be able to understand. Though that may be giving them too much credit. The Transcript below is an artistic re-imagining of the recent MTV video called “2017 New Year’s resolutions for white guys.” I call it “2017 New Year’s resolutions for Jews.”

Hey fellow Jews!

Its about to be a new year and there is a few things you could do a little bit better in 2017.

First off, try to recognize that America was never great for anyone who wasn’t a Jewish financier, slave trader or film producer.

Can we all just agree that White lives matter isn’t the opposite of all lives matter? White lives just matter. There is no need to over-complicate it.

Also, “black lives matter” isn’t a thing. Blacks were born with a low IQ and proneness to criminality, right? I mean, ya! They weren’t born law-abiding!

Stop bragging about being Jewish. Stop saying “anti-semitism.” Learn what Jew-splainin’ is, and then stop doing it.

Oh and if you are a Jewish judge, don’t prioritize the well-being of a black athlete over the white woman he assaulted.

We all love @Jew_GoldStein and ya, he’s Jewish so of course he cares about Jewish questions. I am talking to you Kurt Eichenwald.

Feel free to take Glenn Beck though, you can have him. You know what you did, Glenn.

Nobody who has white friends says that they have white friends. Just because you have white friends, doesn’t mean you aren’t anti-white. You can be anti-white with white friends!

Look Jews, we know nobody is perfect, but honestly, you can do a little better in 2017. Some of you Jews do awful finance, propaganda, and pedophilia. Some of you don’t. Please, because 2016 is bad. 2017 can’t be worse than this, alright, cause this is bad.

See how infuriating this sort of rhetoric can be leftists? This is why people hate you so much. Actually, it is hardly the only reason but it is a very important one. Also, 2017 is going to be much, much worse for you putrid fucks.

[EDIT For clarity, the following is actually a Joke as part of this fake propaganda article. There is no Zally Goldberg. The enterprising troll would likely leave this admission out when trolling leftists.]

The original video was apparently produced by the following disgusting woman named (((Zally Goldberg))). I didn’t think much could be more disgusting than the video, but her personal appearance takes the cake. And as if she weren’t ugly enough herself, she is also wearing a horrendously ugly “fuck white people” suit.
