In a return to what I believe, if I recall correctly, was my most popular post since starting this blog, it seems that GitHub is up to more extremely annoying Cultural Marxism. For those who don’t know what GitHub does, it hosts servers and a platform for programmers to share and work on open source software for any number of applications. The contributors are not paid for their efforts or their code. They are doing it because they enjoy working on cool projects and because they think their work will make the internet, and thus the world, better. It is a very selfless endeavor. It is also inherently meritocratic because you can work behind a screen name and never reveal your real name, your race or your gender. The result is that it is almost entirely populated by white (and possibly northeast Asian and Indian) males since they are the main ones with both interest and talent.
Previously, GitHub had set an official, yet optional (for now) code of conduct which was obviously designed to disenfranchise white males:
Our open source community prioritizes marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort. We will not act on complaints regarding:
- ‘Reverse’ -isms, including ‘reverse racism,’ ‘reverse sexism,’ and ‘cisphobia’
- Reasonable communication of boundaries, such as “leave me alone,” “go away,” or “I’m not discussing this with you”
- Refusal to explain or debate social justice concepts
- Communicating in a ‘tone’ you don’t find congenial
- Criticizing racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behavior or assumptions
On which I commented the following (and more) in the first link:
There are two things that really strike me about the above text. One, the main and largest demographic of this all-volunteer community (white men) is the one that these SJW entryists are going out of their way to define as second class citizens. They are telling them point blank that hating white men is allowed and they aren’t going to do anything about it when someone comments in this way. Even though these guys are freely giving away their time and effort, they still aren’t above being the officially sanctioned object of hatred. Two, if those same white men wanted to have some way to defend themselves from false SJW allegations, they are officially disallowed from doing so. They are banned from making SJWs defend their faith in “social justice,” logic need not apply. In addition, when they are accused of some -ism falsely, official channels will not address the slander in any way. They just have to take it. Sounds like a good community to be part of, right?
Continuing along this path of idiocy, they set up a conference called electronconf (original announcement), which is meant to be about discussing how to set up cross platform compatibility and then postponed it (read: canceled) for the typical SJW reasons. Like I said in my previous post, I am no tech expert, but I believe electron is supposed to allow you to design software which can work equally well on windows, mac, and linux computers. Tech heads, forgive me if I didn’t get that quite right. Here is the announcement GitHub gave on the conference site:
We published a list of speakers that does not reflect the standards to which we hold ourselves. We will be postponing this event until we can deliver a more diverse slate of speakers.
Submissions will be initially blind reviewed by a panel of GitHub employees from a range of departments and backgrounds. Speaker information will be used in any final reviews necessary to break ties and bring a balance to the speaking line-up. Final selections should be complete by June 6, 2017.
If I were to guess what happened, the selection crew were ambivalent about diversity and when it didn’t work out as expected in the perfect SJW fantasy they passed the results along as is without much thought. Meritocracy is good even if it isn’t perfectly progressive, right? Later on a true believer saw the results, rallied the rest of the no talent hacks in GitHub’s diversity departments, and successfully lobbied to get the conference “postponed.” This is why every organization needs a very strong immune system against leftists.

Github isn’t the only tech company with a heavy SWJ slant. I would say this is true with almost all of tech. I know two very incompetent women programmers who obtain jobs WITHOUT being given a coding challenge or a technical interview. The first woman was even criticized by another woman behind her back about it; she basically got the job because she had a nice tech blog. I kid you not. A another friend of mine (Asian male fresh our of college) had to go through two technical interviews in the place where the second woman got the job, yet didn’t get it despite being much better than she was. Email me if you would like to know which companies I am referring too.
If you check out coding bootcamps, which try to turn people into software engineers, over half of them have discounts specifically targeted to women: https://www.coursereport.com/blog/bootcamp-scholarships-for-women-a-comprehensive-list. As far as I remember, software developer was #1 and #2 in terms of overall job satisfaction in subsequent years a few years ago. But at the rate at which these bootcamps are churning out low skill programmers, it is inevitable that this will fall.
I once had a conversation with a Facebook developer at a meetup in which he accidentally implied women coders aren’t that good. He caught his mistake (saying it publicly), ended the conversation, then went back to eating his pizza. It is a open secret amongst non-SWJs that women aren’t that good at it, just like they aren’t good as at electrical engineering, according to a female friend of mine.
Thank you for the comment. Saying that men and women are different has been made taboo and in a very short amount of time. It is sort of crazy how quickly this was pushed from the top down. Yet reality is obvious enough for those with the eyes to see. And even more obvious for those who take the time to learn the science (see my book smart and sexy, you can also read a relevant excerpt at the link below). Yet almost all organizations are full of SJW entryists who band together and persecute anyone willing to acknowledge the truth. New organizations must work very hard to prevent these people from getting in if they wish to be successful.
I’m canceling my 2 github accounts after reading this. Fuck them. -programmer
I don’t blame you. Once an organization is converged by entryist sjws there isn’t much you can do other than start a new organization that has the exclusion of SJWs as part of its main mission. In fact every organization or business should make this a top level priority right after its main focus. You may want to ignore politics, but politics doesn’t want to ignore you.
Hopefully there is an alternative you can use.
“Our open source community prioritizes marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort.”
WTF- can you believe the level of rhetoric here? Who the hell writes this stuff? Do they have some sort of committee that argues along the lines of “no, this isn’t manipulative enough, that needs to be more unhinged”, and so on.
Its outrageous. If special snowflakes are so sensitive perhaps they should take up a hobby other than coding.
Isn’t most of Silicon Valley progs? Look at their graphic design, and you’ll see it’s the same boring program postmodernist garbage.
Also, why did you delete your “My falling out with the Hestia Society” post? It was a good critique. HS are poor leaders (Independently-owned Thermidor Mag is better managed than Hestia’s prized SM. Also, what research do they exactly conduct? Do they do anything practical outside running SM?). They also seem unable to handle any criticism of their work (Thermidor Mag does, at least somewhat)
I was asked nicely to remove it because of information specific to one individual. It was embarrassing and I don’t think the mistakes need to follow someone around forever.
More generally, I have no long term beef with hestia and don’t feel it is necessary to keep up a post on a minor spat. It doesn’t do anyone any good.
I didn’t actually delete it, since I generally don’t like to destroy my past work, but I did make it private.
