SJWs in tech have finally gone off the rails.
A user commented in a discussion thread about the node.js code of conduct which included an eggplant emoji. How did node react?
First, they banned him - they accused him of trying to intimidate woman contributors with the 'phallic' eggplant. not only from the CoC repo, but also from all of node.
Next, they created a thread to discuss how to punish him: https://archive.is/7b1iG
Finally, they got anorexia and deleted the thread. The user remains banned.
How can we save tech from the SJW plague? First Mozilla, now node.js. What next? Will Linus be executed for not being feminist enough?
For continued lulz, see https://github.com/nodejs/inclusivity/issues where such important programming questions are being raised as "Inclusivity to the non neurotypical."
SJW went off the rails a long time ago. Ironically, the only way to not get shit on is to
>not hire SJW
>not respond to comments from SJW
Men and women are ok in tech, men just have a higher disposition to the field. Finding radical ideologues and getting rid of them is harder than you think.
dude posted an eggplant next to a roll of toilet paper, and nothing else, in a sensitive thread.
dude knew exactly where he was and what he was doing.
pretty clear he was out to push buttons.
>Will Linus be executed for not being feminist enough?
this is boring. stop being boring.
>getting triggered by a fruit in ANY context
All of the responses on Github about "muh soggy knee" and "sexism" in response to a fucking eggplant are ridiculous and petty. Stop being ridiculous and petty.
I can't believe anybody could be such a shitlord... (dot dot dot) Women are literally being triggered by penises in technology out of becoming beautiful and proud software developers and you think it's ok to derail safe, sensitive threads into depictions of problematic phallic images as if all the triggering is just a joke and not a completely real problem contributing to the wage gap and lack of women in technology. Shaking my head.
What are you guys losing your shit over?
Just laugh and ignore them.
They're literally irrelevant using and irrelevant language for one of the most irrelevant proffesions that exist (webdev)
This is what happens if faggots can only circle jerk.
> How can we save tech from the SJW plague? First Mozilla, now node.js.
Move it out of the USA and other countries where some SJW & Christfags and the like have actually managed to make a lot of people think that swearing and politics and "sensitive issues" and the like are not quite or not at all okay to communicate, even for adults.
No, this is why SJWs are even a thing. The people they piss off go full autism mode and give theme exactly what they want.
If /v/ was not so retarded SJWs would hardly be a thing.
the fucking truth...
however, I am prepared to convert to islam, to have some places to flee from society, and woman.
we need sharia laws in society, so fags and woman have a reason to quiet down...
This can't be real right?
People like this can't exist.
honestly bro, nothing good came from having women in technology and engineering...
In the old days, there were geeks and lulz.
Go now to class -> do assignment with classmates.
If woman are present -> zero lulz 100% bitter work
If fat geek present, at least 50% lulz and 50% work...
cant stand this shit
It's SJW bullshit, they wanted to replace "kill" with "stop" (which is the dumbest shit ever for those of you which know as little as they do). An eggplant was posted and they were triggered.
that particular eggplant looks extremely phallic. Just saying. It has the little head and it's shaped like an erection and everything. I agree that SJWs are way too sensitive about it, but they're not wrong when they call it a sexual insinuation.
it's only sexual insinuation because they made it that way. what's next, the smug emoji because it's insuinating rape? I can already imagine the #banRapeEmoji hashtag trending and people getting >triggered because of this emoticon.
Guys, please stop giving this Anon the attention he so desperately craves.
In the abstract, I would consider it appropriate to ban individual instances of users in an effort to appeal to classes of users.
If banning one guy posting an eggplant and referring to it vaguely as a purple penis because he *knows* that's annoying, then it's reasonable to ban him if it signals to all women that the community is receptive to their concerns.
4chan does the same thing with less of a SJW flair. They ban really obnoxious trolls to signal to the rest of us that we can invest our time and energy posting comments knowing (with some confidence, at least) that the board won't get totally overwhelmed with trolls and spam.
>I thought that was supposed to be a ballsack.
I don't know (or want to know) the specific shapes of your genitalia, but there are numerous articles explaining that the eggplant emoji means penis. Not just "looks like", but in the community of people that use emoji as non-literal stuff (so basically every millennial living with their parents I guess), eggplant => dick.
Do you have any outside source other than yourself that agrees that eggplant means or represents ballsack? I can find a handful that say the eggplant means penis, and I'm sure I could find some jokes in movies and tv shows that corroborate that (i.e. predating emoji).
My only source is my own sprite interpretation, because I've never heard anything phallic about the representation of an eggplant before. I didn't know it was some "thing" people associated with eggplants, but thanks for confirming it.
They keep referring to "a person's identity" like it's some sort of sacred ideology. This is the fucking Computer Science field. No one gives a shit what fucking "identity" you are as long as you aren't a whiny cunt and do good work. Sadly, none of these fucking SJW meatballs fulfill those requirements and they pepper the fucking scene like over spiced gnash.
SJWS PLS DIE
We really need a CScience Hitler to come and burn all these fuckers
I have no idea what're you talking about, but this is a thread people obviously give a shit about cause otherwise it would just sink with no answer and you sit here posting retarded shit like 'it's so boring no one cares' and contradictory 'stop giving attention' requests. And I'm telling you: fuck off.
Good for you, they say.
Tasty, they say.

Google trends agrees that it's been a thing since at least the beginning of 2015.
eggplant emoji exists for the same reason that shrimp emoji exists: Because.
i get legitimately upset by things like this but then i realize nothing SJWs do actually output to the real world
maybe you guys need to be reminded that giving them attention justifies their 'cause' and only makes them stronger
Can we somehow make a completely innocuous word offensive? Like not just eggplant or something, but a completely randomly chosen, totally innocent word. Take it and contrive a whole meaning around it that's just bullshit but that SJWs believe and push to ban.
For example, we would take something like "tape" and somehow get them all riled up to believe that "tape" somehow refers to using duct tape to constrict women and rape them (or some total bullshit nonsense), and insist that nobody use the word "tape" anymore.
I really just want to see random words become taboo so that over time we look back like "woah what the fuck why can't we use 'chair' or 'table' or 'tape' anymore? When did that shit become offensive?"
captcha asked me to select all the pancakes. I nominate that we make "pancake" offensive.
Eggplant emoji exists because it's eye-talian for "nigger"
Moulinyan = Eggplant = Nigger
So there you go.
There, you learned another racist term you never knew about unless you grew up with Italians. It's especially used in South-eastern New England, NY, and Joisey.
Which is fucking hilarious because the people who use it regularly have southern Italy heritage meaning half of their blood is African anyway.
>nothing SJWs do actually output to the real world
shirtgate, two guys getting fired for joking about forking on a conference, the narrative of violence against women in gaming hitting mainstream media/paraded as a real issue in UN
another example of sjw memes hitting more popular medium: 'men should shut up' video by that senator on kekbert
but keep telling yourself that "nothing SJWs do actually output to the real world"
the point of my post is that all this shit should be secondary to the actual software development, not such a huge priority that they need to go as far as making 'guidelines' and shit for it
>dude knew exactly where he was and what he was doing.
the response is still retarded
if he was banned for being an idiot alone, no one would give a shit
them trying to use it as a point to crusade around is what's really being mocked
>that one kid you knew in pre-school
This is true.
Life is like that through and through. At best, it's "middle-school forever" when it comes to personalities and politics (any kind of politics).
As I age, I am getting more and more misanthropic. I'm almost ready to move to a cabin in the woods like the unabomber.
I don't know what is more pathetic, the fact someone got banned from some retarded website for this, or some nerd actually made that stupid fucking image.
You are all fucking tools and just as bad any retard SJW. You fucking morons actively look for stupid obscure shit that no one on the planet gives a flying fuck about.
It's fucking obvious the stupid post was trying to start shit, just like anyone here would do. The real issue is you fucking faggots wished you actually had something people cared about so you could stand up to MUH SJWs and feel tough.
But whatever, this entire topic is fucking retarded and if you call me an sjw just because I'm not playing along you are truly a fucking moron.
>It's fucking obvious the stupid post was trying to start shit
and it's obvious that the response was a 6 year old's style tantrum about how an eggplant is inherently misogynistic. which is more retarded? which is more dangerous to society as a whole? i realize dangerous sounds a bit dramatic so maybe counter-productive is better?
i'm not defending the guy who made the post or angry about him getting banned, i just find the response indicative of a mass hysteria that is happening right now and it's hilarious to see these people lose their shit. At the same time it's not funny when people, organizations, and businesses actually start acting like these people aren't insane.
>implying anyone serious ever actually uses node.js
Node has been the kekkest meme since inception. I firmly believe the entire project is a massive ruse designed to expose illiterates calling themselves programmers.
I vote for the word 'Log'. Imagine the shit storm if the SJWS had to change every appearance of the word log in every project on github. It'd be enough to shut them up for a century.
From now on: All code in curly brackets MUST be extremely indented or the programmer can be accused of rape and child endangerment
by order of the Womyn's Coding Rypublic
>dude knew exactly what he was doing
Excuse my simple mind but what the fuck kind of information can you glean from a to roll next to an eggplant? Unless I'm missing a dope meme, its not even a coherent thought, let alone an insidious undermining of women
Does anyone else feel really sorry for honest, hardworking women with jobs in tech? The ones who just do a good job without having to constantly scream 'give me priority because I have a vagina'.
They must be embarrassed by these extreme social justice types.
This is stupid as fuck and sjws are retarded, but why the fuck is there even an eggplant emoji in the first place?
In what conversation would you need to send a cartoon of a fucking eggplant? Even if you were saying you wanted an eggplant parm or something finding the emoji would probably take longer than just typing it out, and be harder to understand anyway.
Aren't emoji's supposed to convey emotion or something?
Also fuck github, anyone hosting a project there deserves to have these retards run it out at this point. Once all the real projects leave due to this kinda bullshit and the site is filled with nothing but hello world programs and gay shit like motivational phrase generators to help heal fragile liberal fee-fees it will finally die the death it deserves.
Kek, of course not, only naive youngsters fed liberal media beleive that shit. Just look at the Islamic nations' Sharia law.
I think it's reasonable to assume that there are some competent women about in addition to the crybaby 'give me a job as a womyn in tek or i'll scalp you for misogyny' lot. There are at my university, anyway.
I don't feel sorry for them necessarily, but I understand their frustration. I work with quite a few women who don't need the scales tipped in their favor, special privilege, or additional consideration to excel. They are absolutely fantastic programmers and mathematicians, and many of them expressed their frustration with how women without the skill to succeed blame some kind of social bias, instead of getting gud.
They all have said they've dealt with some amount of prejudice in their time, but it was isolated and they were able to easily overcome it with their technical prowess. One of these women was actually my boss for a while, and I both respected her and looked up to her. She is still one of the most technically competent people that I know. She is also a fantastic leader and a generally nice person.
As stupid as making this into a controversy is, if you are too dense to see why a dick shaped fruit next to an open tube isn't alluding to sex, you're a tryhard moron.
yeah, ok, why do you care at all tho
like "i demand my rights to post pictographs of vegetables in weird contexts"
lmao they're discussing whether a comment was for them or against them so they can decide whether to ban the person or fill out their request. isn't this outright proof that they don't even give a fuck about your opinions just who you are?
based esr, as always
