Woke Microsoft

Post by etnull »


Sorry missed this one, I thought it's some kind of joke, but apparently it's not?

The "silly" effeminate wave that the man in a blue shirt in the second clip does always gets me.

I'm not sure I understand what's going on here. The audio doesn't seem to sync, indicating this is a voice-over/re-dubbed parody, except I don't get the references and it's not particularly funny.

They're just poor recordings but they're real, here are the originals: the first part and the second part. They're not meant to be funny, it's a demonstration of the sad state of the industry. I don't care what pronouns the presenters go by, nor do I think blind people care what they look like (why would they? wouldn't that just promote racism, sexim, lookism, or any other -isms?), we care about their credentials and the expertise they have in the technical field they're going to talk about.

This is nothing extraordinary. To hire and retain continuous stream of employees, who've grown up in the woke world, speaking woke language, companies are adapting for business, profitability.

It's absolutely normal.

What if we are just old farts complaining about change? Don't you think that a man should be allowed to smoke a cigarette at the kitchen reading newspaper while his wife is cooking? It shouldn't sound unreasonable to someone from the 1950's.
To someone from the 1990's it's at the very least old fashioned, but can even feel misogynistic.

Reminder that Microsoft employees admitted on Twitter that Microsoft outside-contractor policy was responsible for the introduction of Linux kernel dev team CoC.
