    What does sexism have to do with his quote? The point is if you have to stepping on needles about what you say nothing new will be done.

    Wow! Great post!


    Unbelievably bad diction AND unbelievably bad logic. A twofer!

    We are not talking about “political correctness,” we are talking about a crude, ignorant, sexist pig. Cases in point:
    “tech managers spend as much time worrying about how to hire talented female developers as they do worrying about how to hire a unicorn”
    “Women’s suffrage and individual freedom are incompatible. How’s that for an unpopular truth?”
    One day after the Newtown shootings: “Women don’t get forced into marriages with “creepy” guys anymore, so sometimes those desperate sexless virgins kill dozens. Quelle surprise.”
    “feminism in tech remains the champion topic for my block list. my finger is getting tired”
    ""misogyny" is “hatred of women”. It is not misogyny to tell a sexist joke, or to fail to take a woman seriously, or to enjoy boobies."
    This was a Chief Technology Officer. Whether or not he is entitled to be stupid — and the First Amendment certainly does entitle you to speak what little mind you may have — companies are entitled to kick morons out of highly visible and public positions when those people are bringing shame on them. These were public tweets by someone posting his title and his company.

    I say guys should be allowed to be as big of a sexist pig as they want, just as long as they graciously put up with the same behavior from gay men.

    An excellent example of why anecdotal evidence is so useless for making cogent arguments. Are you saying that women can’t program, based on one example? You are exactly the kind of jerk that the cartoon is lampooning. Conservatives can’t do statistics, evidently.

    Jen, up your meds. That is the most confused cartoon I’ve seen in quite a while.

    Maybe she’s blonde… That would explain things… ;)

    Whenever I hear the call of “political correctness” it usually is about racism, sexism etc in its defense by ending pc sp that they can return to the good old days of their old ways without recrimination.

    Do you need to go back to kindergarten so you can understand?. The rest of us got it. And it depicts you pretty well.

    I take it you are unfamiliar with facetious sarcasm then TM?

    @Enoki

    I am finding you very hard to read or figure out. I read your comment, twice before I commented. I even went away and waited on a customer before clicking “submit.” I reread your comment just now before writing this reply, and no I still don’t see it. However, if you were not intending your comment to be demeaning of Jen, blondes or Jen’s grip on the issue, then I apologize. I apologize if I misinterpreted your comment, but I would also ask that you consider this misunderstanding when posting in such a way again. I am guilty of jumping to conclusions and then reacting badly, even though I did try to deliberate before replying originally. So again, if I indeed misunderstood your intended message, I apologize, but if your message was intended as an attack on the cartoonist, her clarity and possible hair color, then I stand by my statement.

    What Rednecks call “political correctness,” normal people call “being polite to each other.”
    -
    I blame the shock jocks starting with his heaviness Limbaugh the First. Others soon followed who wanted to out do him by being as hateful and disreputable as ever putting under the unsteady rubric of “directness” and “truthful.” All a scam just to be ugly and paid for it.

    In fairness to Enoki this symbol ;) was used at the end of it signifying sarcasm or lack of seriousness.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    Agreed, but that is hardly sufficient to justify such a comment. It is a good example of second panel. No amount of intended humor justifies such a crude joke. At least not in modern civilized society. But at least you were smart enough to pick up on Enoki’s indication of justification, thank you.

    You will find I rarely, if ever, insult or ad hominen anyone. On sites where you can put people on ignore I will not do that either except in very rare and exceptional cases.
    I thought my commentary was in line with the tone of the comic as a sort of touche sarcasim that reflected the tone of the cartoon being mildly misgynonistic. I included the emotocon to subtilely show it was sarcasm.
