Where does the good go

Update

Okay, I don’t know why I’m doing a follow-up to the last post I wrote, since only one person commented and clearly no one else cares. *sad trombone*

BUT CHECK OUT THIS STORY!!

So, this woman attended a tech conference and during the lecture two dudes behind her started making jokes. She felt these jokes were sexist, took their picture and tweeted the conference bigwigs the jokes. The conference bigwigs dragged the men away. They were both later fired by their companies. The men, in turn, at least one of them, went public to say the jokes she overheard were not meant to be sexist and that he has three kids and is now unemployed because of what she did. Those super famous H*ac*k*ers took the side of the fired men and internet bombed her site AND her employer’s site. Then all these people attacked her on twitter and threatened to rape and murder her. This guy did a video:

where he like says she’s now the focus of his life or something. Check out the minute right before he says “race card.” I’m still wondering why he’s talking like that? Oh, is it because the woman is African-American. Hmm. What does that have to do with anything.

Anyway, SO NOW THE WOMAN’S COMPANY FIRED HER!

ISN’T THIS NUTS?

No? Nobody but me cares. Hmph.

Fine.

Racists. Or Sexists.

SOMETHINGISTS!!

    I know a lot of folks who care, myself included. This is completely crazy, and I find myself concerned for Ms. Richards’ safety.

    I care. I just think we are too far gone and totally fucked as a society to be surprised by it.

    What Angela said.

    Also, I can’t recall a recent story where I believed absolutely everyone involved is wrong. What a royal shitshow!

    @astin

    yeah, I saw that post today! CRAZY!!

    @tae I keep going back and forth about who I think was wrong…but yeah, I guess everyone…especially after reading that post that astin commented with.

    I went and looked at her blog to read her take on the situation. As soon as I saw the name of the blog, I made some snap judgments about what type of person she would be. That initial impression was largely confirmed when I read the article linked by astin.

    My conclusion is that she sees her world as she believes it is, rather than as it is. When I look for the worst in people, I most assuredly find it. When I look for the best, I also find it. It is much easier to look for the worst, but it is more rewarding for me to look for the best.

    I think absolutely everyone involved in this little tempest has behaved horribly at some point in the process. I would suggest they all try to follow Wheaton’s Law, but I’m sure that would get me accused of harassment.

    Exactly how have you have the ability to construct a real great group of commenters to your web page?

    I also happen to love the story of the movie, despite
    its contradictory message, merely for the fact that it shows
    the Pok. Feel free to reprint this article in its original
    format. Morita wanted a device that would help him listen to operas during his frequent flights.
