Google SJWs Can’t Be Appeased

Posted on | November 9, 2018 | No Comments

 

Last week, Google employees walked out after issuing a manifesto of feminist demands (“‘Choose the Form of the Destructor’: #GoogleWalkout and SJW Torpedoes,” Nov. 1) and Google executives are now learning the lesson of Munich. Never appease totalitarians:

On November 1, thousands of Google employees walked out of their offices around the world to protest the handling of sexual misconduct allegations by the company. The organizers released a set of demands, including an end to Forced Arbitration, a commitment to end pay and opportunity inequity, and a publicly disclosed sexual harassment transparency report.
Google responded to the walkout on Thursday, announcing changes to their sexual misconduct reporting and arbitration processes. Google CEO Sundar Pichai wrote that “we try hard to build a workplace that supports our employees and empowers them to do their best work. As CEO, I take this responsibility very seriously and I’m committed to making the changes we need to improve.”
But the organizers of the walkout are not completely satisfied with Google’s response. In a statement posted to Medium, Claire Stapleton, Tanuja Gupta, Meredith Whittaker, Celie O’Neil-Hart, Stephanie Parker, Erica Anderson, and Amr Gaber acknowledged that the company made progress, but not enough. They say that Google still hasn’t addressed many of the core demands of the walkout.

However, the response ignored several of the core demands — like elevating the diversity officer and employee representation on the board — and troublingly erased those focused on racism, discrimination, and the structural inequity built into the modern day Jim Crow class system that separates ‘full time’ employees from contract workers.

In October, before the walkout, the New York Times released a report outlining how Google protected Andy Rubin and paid him $90 million in the handling of a sexual misconduct investigation involving him and his subsequent departure from the company. The investigation added to the already long lists of complaints employees had with Google.
“We demand a truly equitable culture, and Google leadership can achieve this by putting employee representation on the board and giving full rights and protections to contract workers, our most vulnerable workers, many of whom are Black and Brown women,” said Stephanie Parker. “And they all have the same root cause, which is a concentration of power and a lack of accountability at the top.”

Nothing the (male) executives of Google can do will satisfy the company’s Social Justice Warriors, whose totalitarian ideology defines males — yes, all males — as oppressors who must be destroyed. The specific grievances cited by SJWs are just a means to an end for the walkout organizers, whose real aim is the dismissal of the company’s management, and their replacement by an all-female management team.

Some men are still deluded enough to believe feminists want “equality,” so that male executives at Google may imagine that if women were 50% of the company’s management, this would satisfy those demanding an end to “structural inequity.” But in fact, as Google will learn, the number of male managers acceptable to feminists is zero.

Feminism’s demands to men can be summarized quite succinctly:

  1. Give us money;
  2. Shut up;
    and
  3. Go away.

Notice the resemblance to your typical divorce? That’s not a coincidence.

A major cause of declining marriage rates is that divorce has been weaponized by feminists. Any man who walks down the aisle is entering into a blackmail arrangement. From the moment he says “I do,” the husband is subject to a species of extortion, and any children that may result from his marriage become hostages in a negotiation where failure to comply with his wife’s demands will be met with a threat of divorce. The court system has become so blatantly biased against husbands and fathers that men are quite routinely driven to suicide after divorce (there are more than 3,000 such cases in the United States annually). And this is analogous to what’s happening now at Google. Feminists staged a walkout and issued a list of demands. The CEO sought to appease them, only to discover they cannot be appeased. They don’t want Sundar Pichai to make Google better; they want a divorce from Sundar Pichai.

Feminism is not about “equality,” it’s about power, and feminism’s power is entirely destructive in nature. The whole point of the #MeToo movement was to destroy the careers of powerful men, so that these men could be replaced by women. It’s a zero-sum-game mentality and, in point of fact, it has been remarkably successful. Consider the consequences of #MeToo accusations at Vice Media: Shane Smith created a $5.7 billion multimedia company, but in the wake of a New York Times exposé of the “toxic bro culture” at Vice, Smith handed off the CEO job to former A&E boss Nancy Dubuc. This is part of an observable trend of women executives advancing to top jobs in the wake of #MeToo scandals. Before taking the Vice CEO job, Dubuc “had been in the running for the top role at Amazon Studios, also in need of a culture fix following the departure of Roy Price over a sexual harassment allegation, that job went to NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke.”

The men who run Google and other Silicon Valley giants will discover that feminists are not interested in any “reform” agenda. This isn’t something that changes to workplace policy can fix. Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, and the targets of destruction — men like @SundarPichai — had better wake up.
