    I watched clips of that Ariana Grande concert and was an emotional wreck afterwords. I just assumed that her fun pop music would have felt tonally dissonant with the gravity of the situation, but instead it was just incredibly moving and powerful.

    All of this sucks a lot. Glad to hear you are okay Bruegel.

    testicular scintigraphy has been pretty much phased out in favor of ultrasound to rule out torsion so probably not

    Was sitting in the office and a NATO buddy from Portugal was, "Trump just said transgender people can't serve in the armed forces." I was all like, no fucking way, they're already serving in the armed forces! He couldn't just tweet out some bullshit and have it be law.

    So... still wondering wtf is going to happen with that. On the plus side, between that and the scaramucci or whatever the fuck his name is mess, nobody's probably paying much attention to all that fucked up Russia shit going down.

    Smoke and mirrors. All a big fucking sham. The worst of the right wing savages aligned with the worst of the self-serving hucksters, and every human being with any semblance of rational thought being driven past cynicism into full on depression.

    i love the notion advanced by right wingers that having a VP of Diversity and programs that promote cultural understanding are terrible for business and affirmative action will result in the hiring of bad employees, yet these programs are continually valued by the most successful multi-national corporations on the planet.

    given how entrenched neo-liberalism is in most places in our elite society, it makes it that much more shocking to me that those establishment forces couldn't prevent the rise of Donald Trump, whose personal profiteering is a massive threat to neo-liberal economic order.

    from the comments here:

    You’re wilfully misinterpreting me there.

    There is a difference between a statistical generalisation (women, taken as a group, tend to have different priorities and abilities from men) and a stereotype – where you apply a generalisation about a group to an individual. I believe in statistics, I do not believe in stereotyping people based on those statistics.

    Secondly, I 100% believe that women who want to be software engineers should be free to do so. That is completely uncontroversial and very few people would argue otherwise.

    I just believe that, by and large, more men than women will want to be software engineers. For example, 80% of Computer Science graduates are men. So it’s not surprising that 80% of Google employees are also men. There are other fields, like the health sciences, where the exact opposite is true.

    You could, of course, say that it’s because women are discouraged from studying CS in the first place because of rigid, socially constructed gender roles, but I find this argument unconvincing because a) it second-guesses women’s choices in an unfalsifiable and kinda condescending way and b) if most women don’t want to be programmers, why is that a problem?

    I don’t for a second believe that discrimination in tech is not a problem – look at Uber, for example – I merely think that men and women, on average, are different, and even in a perfectly fair society, we shouldn’t expect them to make the same choices as men.

    I understand that not everyone agrees with that position, but I think it’s very unfair of you to ascribe malicious and sexist views to me just because I disagree about how to interpret certain statistics.

    this is the height of pseudo-intellectual garbage and shows why these debates about identity don't neatly fit on the left-right spectrum

    this person clearly has some grasp of the nuances of the situation, but then arbitrarily decides to throw out structural factors as a cause of this disparity because they decide it doesn't sound nice to them. then they justify that by saying that looking at structural determinism would "second-guesses women's choices" to cover their ass from the left.

    you can be as "progressive" or "educated" as you like and still not acknowledge the way the past shapes the present and future.

    gosh, it's almost like women have been legally discriminated against since the founding of this country and that has consequences that are still with us today.

    reflecting on this weekend, the images were clearly extremely visceral for many people. citizens brawling in the streets over racial ideology seems to have been a tipping point for many people. to me, it's nothing that hasn't been there all along. yes, the spotlight on it now in hopes of disinfecting it is welcome. it got a guy fired from my favorite Berkeley sausage spot: http://www.berkeleyside.com/2017/08/13/berkeleys-top-dog-fires-employee-went-white-nationalist-rally/

    still, that our law enforcement and military have white supremacy embedded in them to the core is far more disturbing than white nationalists feeling emboldened to assemble in our streets. the antifa and non-violent protestors of the world can overwhelm white nationalists in our streets; they can't stop police officers from killing citizens (especially brown people) and people overseas.

    let's get woke to frat boys from UVA being racist shitheads, but not forget that the racism of our institutions is that much more violent.

    It really bothers me that Herbert McMaster can't pronounce "America." Shit enrages me.
