  1. The New Gillette Social Awareness Campaign

    @dessa_dangerous "Awarding, in the case of two equally qualified candidates, the job to the "diverse" person, is a way of righting a wrong we know is being done somewhere else, and because the white male will almost always have an easier time getting a job for which he is qualified."   Actually, we have no way of knowing that there is a wrong being done somewhere else. If "affirmative action" (or its equivalents) are being applied everywhere, we can actually be pretty sure that the only wrong being done elsewhere is that women and people from "minorities" are being hired and promoted over better qualified white men. It's also highly interesting how you ignore socio-economic background in this context. For you (and so many others), it's all about race and gender. I wonder why is that? I presume it's got nothing to do with the fact that you're a black woman yourself who is looking after her own self-interest.   "You just said your damn self, that diversity in the workplace is "off-putting" to many people.  And that's why many workplaces stay white and/or male."   What I meant was that hiring and promoting based on diversity is off-putting, not "diversity" in and of itself. And so what if many workplaces stay white and/or male? That will depend on the place and the industry in question. I'm sure most school teachers and nurses in Africa are black women. Should they be trying to hire more white men? People like you never seem to understand that Europe is (still) predominantly white, which will naturally be reflected in our workplaces. Stop applying your American PC "affirmative action" bullshit in Europe.    Your posts by the way reek of someone who is unhappy about being part of a "minority" and is full of hatred for the white man. Would you not be happier living in Africa, where the vast majority of people look similar to yourself?

    @AlexTr: I'm not talking about calling people names, I'm talking about things like this: I'd like to be able to say without fear of being mocked or judged that I go to mass almost every Sunday, that I'm anti-abortion, that I voted for the AfD in the most recent European elections, that I think that mass immigration has very negative consequences, that I think that Germans are a bunch of brainwashed PC morons who are overcompensating for the fact that their recent ancestors were a bunch of Nazis.

    @jeremytwo: That was a national disgrace for the UK. And don't forget the New Year's Eve incident in Germany (Cologne) a few years ago. And yet one of my female colleagues at work (herself a mother of two young girls) is trying to force "gender-neutral" language on everyone, as if German women don't have bigger things to worry about!

    @AlexTR: "Answer my question. What is one thing you want to say every or almost every day that is not allowed? Just give us an example. You never know. Maybe I think you should be allowed to say it."   "Allowed" to say it? Without probably even realising it, you're just highlighted what a problem political correctness is! People should be allowed to say everything - it's one of the principles of a democracy.

    @Keleth: "Do your colleagues also have to put up with your views?"   I usually keep my views to myself, especially on any issue that might be deemed "controversial". It feels very oppressive when an entire ideology ("diversity" etc.) is being rammed down your throat and you feel you can't even contradict it.
  6. The New Gillette Social Awareness Campaign

    @AlexTR: "So, your problem is that society has a standard of kindness, acceptance, and politeness you cannot or do not want to meet and you know you can't control your mouth and behavior at work?"   If you think that companies' "diversity" policies have anything to do with "kindness, acceptance and politeness", you are seriously mistaken. "Diversity" is a political ideology being used in the workplace a) by employers to make themselves look good (although of course loads of people find it off-putting) and b) by career-minded women and people from certain sacred "minorities" who want jobs and promotions they might not get if things were decided on merit.

    Not so easy because nowadays most employers are obsessed with this nonsense. My last employer was similar.

    @BradinBayern: "That was sarcasm.  Of course I didn't expect that you sat on a board of anything.   That is what makes it funny.   Do you have a policy at work  that says you cannot express yourself or do you self-censor because you know that the majority of people would find your views execrable?"   Sorry I didn't get the sarcasm. I thought you were one of those upper middle class Yanks in Europe who comes from a privileged background himself and therefore assumes that everyone else does too!   My employer has a culture that is obsessed with "diversity". There is even a push underway at present to force everyone to use "gender-neutral" language. So in that sense, yes, there is a policy that forces me to stay silent on certain issues. Of course, I also self-censor (as do so many other people) out of fear of conflict, ridicule, ostracization, etc.

    AlexTr: "He would prefer that the social norm reverts to no one noticing and commenting on his lack of respect and compassion for other people. It is very difficult for such folks to control their mouths and not speak out loud their baser thoughts about other people."   Screw you and your false PC morality. I've shown far more respect and compassion for others in my everyday life than most leftist virtue signallers who preach about "racism", "sexism" and "homophobia" (while turning a blind eye to mass abortion, Muslim extremism and other crimes) ever have.

    @BradinBayern: "Exactly how does it "stifle" you currently?  You can't tell dirty jokes in board meetings?"   Funny how you assume that I sit on the board of a company!   Political correctness stifles me in the sense that I cannot express my opinions on supposedly controversial issues like abortion, immigration, gender, etc in certain situations, e.g. at work. In essence, I can't be myself at work, which is extremely bad for my emotional wellbeing. Expression is the opposite of depression.

    @balticus: "anti-LGBTXYZ, traditional values, nativism, etc.   The reaction will overshoot its target rather than simply curbing the excesses IMHO."   I wish people would stop referring to gay people using those stupid bloody acronyms. I'm gay myself and find it ridiculous.    And I don't see anything inherently wrong with a little bit of "traditional values" or "nativism". The ironic thing is, many people from ethnic minorities are themselves very traditional and nativist, yet in Western countries only the indigenous people are shunned for holding such views.

    @balicus: Repression? How do you mean? Most opponents of "wokeness" don't want to repress anyone; we just want an end to the stifling climate of political correctness.
  13. The New Gillette Social Awareness Campaign

    @Rushrush: Unfortunately, woke culture won't die out anytime soon. My employer, like so many others, is fucking obsessed with "diversity" and other such nonsense. And because I'm afraid of either losing my job or being ostracised by my colleagues (most of whom seem on board with it), I have to put with it.

      It shouldn't be allowed full-stop and if it is (I genuinely don't know if there are jurisdictions where this is allowed), it should make any decent person puke.
