Well according to the US Department of Labor in 2016 females made up 1.4% of plumbers. Last time I checked 1.4% of a population does not equal "I just haven't been looking hard enough"...They do have a bit more prevalence in the trucking industry coming in at 9.6% but the crane operator position is even smaller coming in at 0.8%. I'm not saying that this is a bad thing or a good thing however. If a woman wants to be a plumber then be a plumber. It just brings to light the fact that apparently not many women WANT to be plumbers.

 

There are jobs on the opposite end of the spectrum that are dominated by women as well though. Take pre-school and kindergarten teachers for example, only 2.5% of them are men. Same goes for dental hygienists where only 2.9% are men. I've been to several different dentists over the course of my life in different parts of the US and haven't once seen a male dental hygienist, guess I haven't been looking for them either though...

 

Stats are from the below infographic:

You missed my point. You said you haven't seen any, which also suggests they aren't out there which even you agree isn't true. I've been out of the workforce (aka, i'm retired) for eight years and out of medium to heavy industry six years longer than that and I still see women working in the trades from time to time. Even though the numbers are small, they are out there, just apparently flying under your radar.

How did I miss your point? I said that I don't remember seeing a female in those trades and that I don't know if I've ever seen one working in those field before. I never said they didn't exist, so don't put words in my mouth. You replied that i just haven't beem looking hard enough. To which I replied that their percentage of those workforces is so small that it would take me a while to find one even if I was looking hard for it.

 

I am still confused as to why you are arguing with me about this to begin with. I was simply attributing the extremely low gender diversity in those fields to the fact that apparently the majority of women don't want jobs in those fields. You worked in those industries as a woman, more power to you, however you are in the vast minority in that regard which is what I was pointing out.

IMO I don't really care, it's not like having anti-discriminatory rules would somehow make coding harder. However, I find a lot of people who advocate these are often too radical.

The CoC is so broad that it can be used to eject anyone for anything, that is the problem.

 

The Linux kernel is a purely meritocratic system, if commits get prioritized because the contributor is a PoC or LGBTblahblahblah, it destroys the concept of a merit based system.

The previous CoC was much more vague, if someone wanted to abuse it it would have been extremely easy to do it.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Those women who advocate for CoC and are feminists tend to be lesbians or Bis or look like a man or something like that. Why is this always happening? Why some beautiful girls are not radical feminists and so on? Only uglie women are... just for thought.

Here's a quote from the CoC the project uses:

Quote

But free, libre, and open source projects suffer from a startling lack of diversity, with dramatically low representation by women, people of color, and other marginalized populations.

Part of this problem lies with the very structure of some projects: the use of insensitive language, thoughtless use of pronouns, assumptions of gender, and even sexualized or culturally insensitive names.

Quote

Marginalized people also suffer some of the unintended consequences of dogmatic insistence on meritocratic principles of governance. Studies have shown that organizational cultures that value meritocracy often result in greater inequality. People with “merit” are often excused for their bad behavior in public spaces based on the value of their technical contributions. Meritocracy also naively assumes a level playing field, in which everyone has access to the same resources, free time, and common life experiences to draw upon. These factors and more make contributing to open source a daunting prospect for many people, especially women and other underrepresented people.

they looked at the industry from macro level through a marxist oppressor/oppressed lens. They failed to look at individuals who have broken through class/gender barriers. Studying this and discovering how people have done this would produce something that I could advocate for, not blanket vanity policy at the macro level.

My parents are disabled. My mother is a cleaner. I did not turn out to be a cleaner. I hope my children will do better than me as I have done better than my parents. No diversity quotas required, but meritocracy very much is.

I dont know where you get butthurt from. If I lost my job for a nonsense reason I would feel pretty butthurt but I would not cry about it online, I would get a lawyer. What I see here is people with genuine concerns over the Orwellian nature of the CoC, things that would make my lawyers job harder

I love how you ignore the glaring issues every time you sweep aside complaints of the CoC.

 

Yes a lot of the main points argued for are "common sense".

 

But the way it argues for enforcement of them is insane.

The old CoC never said to expel anyone who breaks the CoC or any moderators who don't strictly enforce the CoC.

 

The old CoC was vague and kinda meaningless. It really wasn't something designed for enforcement, and enforcement was to be done on a case by case basis as determined by the community. You can't really abuse something that's just ethical guidelines. You can abuse the lack of moderation which people certainly have done.

 

The issue with the new CoC is that it starts by portraying itself as the same kind of ethical guidelines just with greater precision. That part is fine. Great even. But problems start to arise when it gets into the later bits and starts to treat itself as a strict and rigid rules system.

 

It being less vague than the previous CoC doesn't make it not vague, and the issue here is not inherently it's vagueness but that it sets strict and aggressive punishment for these incredibly vague terms.

 

Take out the ridiculous parts at the end that already *have* been abused in other communities and you've got a fine CoC where a less severe infringement can be treated less severely and actual moderation can be encouraged.

The CoC is not a legally binding document, nobody is losing their job here, and the maintainers coud always expel you for whatever reason they like. This hasn't changed, the new CoC doesn't suddenly give them an excuse to do it, and the old CoC said pretty much the same things in much vaguer terms.

54 minutes ago, Sniperfox47 said:

Does the new one do that? All it says is that moderators will investigate complaints and act as they deem appropriate, and banning is one of the tools they may employ. If you can't tell the difference between the words "or" and "and" I don't think you have a place discussing the merits of a written document. NONE of the document's contents ever hints at the idea that any moderator must be banned for not expelling people who break the CoC. When someone has the responsibility for something it means that that something is entrusted to them and their judgement - not that they will be punished for not enforcing their power.

 

If any maintainer were to be banned or relieved from their role, it would be by majority vote among the maintainers; there aren't that many maintainers, and if most of them agree someone has to go they have the power to act regardless of what the CoC says. You keep talking about the CoC as if it were the ultimate power in the Linux community and its rules were absolute and uncontestable. That is just not true; it's not even a legal document.

1 hour ago, Sniperfox47 said:

That has nothing to do with this. Other communities have different moderators and if those moderators are abusive that's their problem. The CoC doesn't influence the ability of a moderator to abuse their power; their fellow moderators do. If @GoodBytes started banning people for no reason, you couldn't sue him because "he didn't follow the CoC". You could only hope that other moderators would notice and get him to stop. His abuse would be completely independent of the CoC, even if publicly he might state that he was simply following the rules according to his interpretation.

 

And honestly, if moderator abuse were to happen regularly then the CoC would be the last of the community's problems.

 

Could the new CoC be better? Sure, there's always room for improvement (although everyone seems to have a different opinion of what should be changed...). That doesn't mean it's worth destroying Linux over, or that it matters at all. If it specifically encouraged abuse I could see your point, but it doesn't.

1 hour ago, Sniperfox47 said:

I love how you ignore the glaring issues every time you sweep aside complaints of the CoC.

And for the record, I believe I've already said this - it's not that I ignore the complaint, it's that you don't listen when I address it.

and in my first post from that thread:

Quote

Furthermore, community moderators can (and always could) ban whomever they want for whatever reason as long as they're in agreement with each other - the CoC is not a legal document and it does not override the moderators, just like on this forum. It's just a set of guidelines, more of a warning than a law - any disciplinary action still depends on the context and the moderators' judgement. I would say that in this respect the current CoC is no worse than the previous one and asking for it to be reverted on these grounds is completely unwarranted.

May I stop repeating myself now?

This, I have no clue how else I'm supposed to take what she is saying when she is literally saying the same thing I am xD the best part is when she stormed off saying she has better things to do.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

It doesn't, but if you're in any position of responsibility people will find out.

 

There shouldn't be a problem regardless.

 

The KDE CoC is better, therefore kill Linux...?

No, the wording of the Contributor Covenant CoC is deliberately "hyper inclusive", and should be changed.

 

Wording like this points toward lowering standards applied to code commits...

Meritocracy also naively assumes a level playing field, in which everyone has access to the same resources, free time, and common life experiences to draw upon. These factors and more make contributing to open source a daunting prospect for many people, especially women and other underrepresented people.

Further, it links to http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Meritocracy as its source, which is a political action wiki.

Ok, so now there's such a thing as "too inclusive" apparently... I thought you didn't care who writes the code. The CoC says nothing about favoring anyone, it doesn't matter how many times you claim it contains things it doesn't.

Too inclusive is a thing, it happens when you sacrifice quality in pursuit of tweaking representation for ideological reasons.

 

If you were to run everything like it was an online forum, with the general premise like this...

Quote

Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.

there are no rules anyway.  It just comes down to what mods WANT to do.  So why is it important that there is a CoC to begin with?  The above statement should be all that is needed.

 

As a mod in this hypothetical community I can claim your dissent is threatening and harmful, and ban you.

Which is not in the CoC.

The purpose of the CoC is to warn members so the mods don't have to warn or ban people every day. They tell you more or less what they won't accept so you can avoid it.

How did I miss your point? I said that I don't remember seeing a female in those trades and that I don't know if I've ever seen one working in those field before. I never said they didn't exist, so don't put words in my mouth. You replied that i just haven't beem looking hard enough. To which I replied that their percentage of those workforces is so small that it would take me a while to find one even if I was looking hard for it.

 

I am still confused as to why you are arguing with me about this to begin with. I was simply attributing the extremely low gender diversity in those fields to the fact that apparently the majority of women don't want jobs in those fields. You worked in those industries as a woman, more power to you, however you are in the vast minority in that regard which is what I was pointing out.

Yeah that's like when people say why aren't there more women in certain careers like mechanical engineering and programming? When the simple answer is that not many women go to school for those fields so the fact that a business has vastly more men than women in those fields says nothing about the company but more about the available candidates. Obviously there are women present in those fields but it is small compared to the number of men. That's just how it is.
