#1 What, female STEM teachers - the reason modern school graduates are a bunch of rote reciting monkeys - are not enough? Now we must have female engineers to make the school buildings collapse?

#2 As long as everyone is spouting the correct texts and surrendering to their will, civilization's collapse is a small price to pay for purity.

#3 there's a bunch of people that got flattened by a pedestrian bridge in FL that would disagree.

that bridge was a study in wokeness. unfortunately physics doesn't care how green, how diverse, how minority, how ethnic you are. it all works the same everywhere.

#4 "There is now a well-established evidence base for the business benefits of diverse workforces and teams,"

Where is this, exactly? I remember reading that diversity was supposed to advance science research quality, and when I finally tracked down the original paper it claimed far far less than the breathless headlines--the differences were very minor and probably swamped by other considerations.
Amusingly, the study determined ethnicity by last name (first name was a single letter), so the study could say nothing at all about "diversity" as applied to sex or to black Americans.

I want to "Be a Berean" and read the studies for myself.

#6 I wonder if the lack of hiring has anything to do with employers wondering if the candidate earned the degree or was simply granted it to fulfill some bullshit diversity quota.

#8 Not just that CrazyFool; imagine hiring the student who knows without a doubt social justice doctrine got xhkdjld through college and into work.

Imagine the bullshit, the infallible suggestions, the accountability, and the promotion to human resources.

I read something, somewhere which stuck:
The easiest way for an employer to lose a good employee, is to tolerate a bad employee.
