New AP Course, "Computer Science Principles," Aims To Make CS More Accessible

misexistentialist Re:Again with the girls? (190 comments)

Why is there no similar push in any other field (think firefighter/truckdriver/constrution)

I think it is across the board (of course only when male numbers are "too high"). Female-owned construction companies are preferred for government contracts, and the NYC fire department just eliminated physical performance tests since not enough women could pass. It's probably happening now because the tipping point of unmarried female voters has been reached, from now on they are simply going to vote themselves entitlements. The writers of the Constitution weren't just being jerks when they didn't give women suffrage

Bellard Creates New Image Format To Replace JPEG

misexistentialist Re:This really is a man's world... (377 comments)

Women's magazines are filled with pictures of women, not men, not even cats. A beautiful woman is the universal image, I think even gay men like them. Only subhuman trolls are offended

Uber Banned In Delhi After Taxi Driver Accused of Rape

misexistentialist Re:Sadly,... (179 comments)

Women are shamed and punished and shunned for life when raped in India

If that's true, they are probably a lot more cautious. Impossible to be raped if you aren't within striking distance of the penis.

The UK just banned video recording women sitting on guys' faces and/or vaginally ejaculating. It's officially the Empire of Evil.

GCHQ Does Not Breach Human Rights, Judges Rule

misexistentialist Re:Of course (81 comments)

Prisons are filled with drug offenders, hard to see what justice has to do with it. It's about the convenience of the state, even in basic cases like murder, innocent people are grabbed so that the case can be closed. And of course if you are considered an enemy of the state it follows no constraints

Gilbert, AZ Censors Biology Books the Old-Fashioned Way

misexistentialist Re:Religion is the last straw (289 comments)

desperately trying to find employment in Europe

Desperately indeed, since the European economy is based on fantasies more absurd than any religion, which being formulated in primitive times, are closer to the natural order than ideologies developed in highly artificial urban environments.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

misexistentialist Re:Flip Argument (1128 comments)

You're skipping the part where the cop initiated twice, backing his car up and engaging from the seated position, and then getting out of his car after he was clearly outmatched. He drew his gun in a fistfight before his life was threatened, then he initiated an armed pursuit after the fight was over. If you could see yourself following this sequence of actions you are either dumb or crazy, and without a badge you would get 20 years, Wilson would get on the stand and say what a danger to the community you are.

LinkedIn Study: US Attracting Fewer Educated, Highly Skilled Migrants

misexistentialist Re:Perspective (338 comments)

the "I'm alright Jack, screw you" attitude of a *lot* of people - weirdly enough those who often really *aren't* alright,

You hear this line from many comfortable people, who being set for life, are eager to screw over everyone else with high taxes and regulations to make themselves feel even more superior. If you think you have too much sell your house and give the money to charity. Nah, your humanitarianism will look more like imposing a 25% VAT on toilet paper and doubling the price of gas for the good of the little people. Businesses cut back on hiring, can't afford anything extra in life after taxes to support government bureaucrats making 300% the average income, but thanks for the free healthcare, almost as good as they get in prison!

Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

misexistentialist Re:It's a stupid test (642 comments)

Bechdel is a dyke, it's no surprise that she only wants to see women who have nothing to do with men. Strange how a society that is allegedly inherently bigoted constantly caters to deviants; the truth is society tends to be more tolerant and inclusive than it rightfully should be.

US School Installs 'Shooter Detection' System

misexistentialist Re:20-100 computers worth of cost. (698 comments)

More like the cost of a deputy assistant superintendent's secretary. You could require every school employee to be armed and trained as a condition of hiring, no different than jobs that require you to own a car. But actually the internet made these secondary schools obsolete years ago, the kids should be engaged in working and studying what they want, not being abused as pawns in a giant scam.

US School Installs 'Shooter Detection' System

misexistentialist Re:Dumb idea ... Lots of assumptions .... (698 comments)

People who can be demonstrated to be dangerous are already locked up. Claiming that someone is too mentally unfit to be trusted with basic rights while they are allowed to raise children, sign loans, operate heavy machinery etc., not to mention left to be wholly responsible for their own support and welfare, is insane. Of course it's becoming harder and harder to distinguish between the inside and the outside of asylums as the the general population is increasingly monitored, controlled, and subsidized.

How To End Online Harassment

misexistentialist Re:misogynists on the intarwebz? WHAT U SAY? (834 comments)

Publicly promoting themselves and asking for money has nothing to do with assisting a police investigation. And do you think they don't want to ban "abusive" speech? Well, that's another way of saying any speech they don't like or that can be interpreted to represent a thought that they don't approve

Bounties vs. Extreme Internet Harassment

misexistentialist Re:It Remains a Journalism Scandal. Deal With It. (716 comments)

A woman stole Letterman's car and broke into his home repeatedly, that's what harassment of a public figure looks like, not an internet communication, 99.9% of which are meaningless. Of course he is a powerful man while girls can suffer fatal head injuries by fainting at the sight of a spider, but Brianna Wu is some kind of transsexual, and does not qualify for smelling salts.
