Snowflakes
« on: January 17, 2019, 10:12:03 PM »
I’m gonna start a thread to post all the funny snowflake stories out there on both sides of the aisle.  I’ll put up today’s most ridiculous and comedic story...

Google staff complained word FAMILY instead of children was homophobic

Google had to rethink the word 'family' in March 2017 when staff complained
Employees at California HQ said the term was 'offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong' when used in a presentation about a children's product
Approximately 100 people seemed to agree with an internal thread from someone who stormed out of the offending meeting two years ago
The person said the word 'family' is not equal to having children and Google should stop the use of it in that context
Various employees said they referred to animals, spouses, boyfriends, parents,and  multiple trans-feminine partners as their family
It was also said not all children have families so the words aren't interchangeable
VP Pavni Diwanji told staff to be more conscientious about referring to family

Thank you Rob Lowe...

Rob Lowe blasts college's decision to scrap the Pledge of Allegiance 'because of its links to 'white nationalism'

Rob Lowe criticized a college's decision to end reciting the Pledge of Allegiance
Santa Barbara City College said it decided to 'discontinue the use' of the Pledge to the U.S. flag at meetings as it is 'stepped in expressions of white nationalism'
The Parks and Recreation actor said the decision amounted to 'idiocy' on Twitter
The college reversed the decision on Tuesday after it received criticism

Seriously?

Phoenix restaurant says this is a photo of coal miners. But I see offensive blackface

A few weeks ago, I attended a holiday party at a downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around to view the photographs on the wall.

Then a photograph caught my attention.

Friends said, “It’s coal miners at a pub after work.” It was a photograph of coal miners with blackened faces. I asked a Latinx and white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners at a pub after work. Then they stepped back, frowned and said it’s men in blackface.

I asked the waitress to speak with a manager. Instead, I spoke with a white restaurant owner. I explained to him why the photograph was offensive. Evidently, someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph before.

Yet, the photograph remained on the wall. He said he would talk to the other owners and get back to me. While leaving, I asked him had he spoke with the other owners. He had not spoken with them, but mentioned Google said it's coal miners after work.

The question I have. Why do you even make posts that may offend people? (even if it’s borderline, I find it tasteless)

See? It drives a dialogue.  (227 views now) Do you find these posts offensive?  In what way?

I don't get this.

You get upset when people do this to you but it's okay for you to do this "as usual" to others.

Hey if you promoted borderline racism/hatred and make political statements that are completely not true or is misleading. I think people would have an issue with it.

So what does the fortune cookie say now? You can call me out, but what about him. It’s such a double standard, so unfair. Or maybe you think it’s okay to promote hate.

This should be a nice test to see if Snowflakes are equal in their outrage when one of their own is under the racist bus.
