Whiny Neurotic Psychopathic Sissybitches: Inside Google's Dedicated Grievance Newsletter

Google has an internal newsletter about microaggressions.

That right there is news enough, but the Daily Caller has even more.

Google's anonymous bias reporting newsletter, "Yes, At Google," has been known about for some time, but details have been few and far between. For the first time, The Daily Caller can reveal what gets talked about on the monthly microaggressions report.

...

The editor of the newsletter is Heather Cain, the leader of Google’s Respect@ program. Respect@ is a human resources initiative begun in 2015 which, according to the New York Times "includes a way for employees to anonymously report complaints of inappropriate behavior by co-workers."

So, it's a Narc Newsletter. A Stasi sheet.

Here are some excerps:

Discrimination against the differently-abled

...

"A coworker loudly exclaimed that whoever designed the cafe menu for the day must have been schizophrenic. His tone was so disparaging that it startled me. I was very relieved to see that our team member who has schizophrenia(and who sets a few desks away) was not at her desk at the time."

Oh thank God.

Sexism at Google

"A male [Software Engineer, SWE] sent an email to everyone on the project and many senior people, publicly calling into question the project of a female SWE. When she took him aside privately to state that she had felt disrespected by this, he said she was too emotional and he was just stating facts."

"A small group of people have made industryinfo@discussions so predictably unpleasant and unproductive that I have no idea why anyone is participating on that list anymore. I’ve seen women vocally quit the list over the last few months because threads have become so blatantly misogynistic. It is really unfortunate there's no moderated space to discuss news about Google with a broad audience. There are a lot of voices we’re not hearing because the default venue is so toxic."

A constant theme in the narc newsletter is SJWs policing other people's tone but then blowing a gasket when someone else polices xheir own tone. You see some of that in the next series of made-up unserious grievances:

Respect and civility are 'problematic'

"The original name for this theme was 'respect and civility,'" the newsletter's editor wrote. "Why did we change the name? Respect and civility are important but can be problematic when they get in the way of important conversations. There is also a different understanding of what can be 'expected' when interacting with each other within different communities. For example, some communities think civility is a baseline and respect is earned so you can’t demand someone to be respectful. Others feel that respect is a fundamental way of interacting with peers and a call for civility is essentially only used to tone police someone. We have chosen the word 'thoughtful' to replace them in order to encourage everyone to consider how they communicate using a more neutral term."

"...It's OK for a team to ask for a respectful community in order to get the information they need to help improve the product. In other cases, calling for 'respectful' or 'civil’'conversations doesn't work, e.g. when it's used as tone-policing to shut down uncomfortable sensitive conversations. It is most often used by people in positions of power this way.

"Here's a submission that highlights this: 'I'm frustrated that the yes-at-google editors are talking about 'civil' rather than 'respectful' discourse as the goal. I've had many incredibly disrespectful things said to me that were perfectly civil in tone, and had my own tone policed as 'uncivil' when I responded in frustration. Propagating the notion that we need to be ‘civil’ to each other at work, rather than 'respectful' is a recipe for people being tone-policed, or baited with provocations into being punished, with nothing happening to the person engaging in the provocation.'"

The reason they fight so much over tone-policing is that who polices whose tone is a demonstration of power. If you police someone's tone, you have power over them; if they police yours, they have power over you.
You see the same people shrieking about other people's wording then taking offense that someone criticized their own wording because this is nothing but juvenile power-seeking and king-of-the-hill gamesmanship.

Pronoun problems

"Someone I know has been effectively pressured into not using their preferred pronouns in work communications because some members of their team find it unclear or confusing. The person has tried to open a dialogue to find ways to make communications clearer while still using their preferred pronouns, but has had these efforts shut down."

What pronouns? Anyone want to bet they're very strange? I mean, stranger than being forced to call a man a "she." Something like "My pronouns are Ford Focus /Strudel/Lake Titicaca."

The ‘natural order’ at Google

"A fellow Googler told me it was my responsibility to make other care [sic] about racism and unless I could show how it impacted them personally I would have to get used to the 'natural order of things.'"
...

Straw spat

"The ableist plastic straw ban fad has reached Google. The food team is at least wiling to hear perspectives from disabled Googlers, but this is yet another example where disabled Googlers have to advocate just to maintain the status quo of partial inclusion."

Flirting gone wrong

...

"Anti-harrassment anti-discrimination training includes two examples of men flirting with women as inappropiate behabvior and zero examples involving any other gender configuration. This unthinkingly normalized that dynamic and derives any other."

More problems with pronouns:

Pride pronoun problems

"The Pride TGIF speakers didn't say their pronouns like they did last year, and it generally seemed like trans people were pretty much forgotten about in public discussions."

"We had an external workshop facilitator in our office this week, and they misgendered some employees. During a break, I mentioned this to the facilitator, as respectfully and unobtrusively as I could. The facilitator was open to this feedback, and in the afternoon session asked a person for their name rather than using a presumptive pronoun."

"I wasn't as unobtrusive as I thought because since then 2 individuals -not including misgendered employees- thanked me for bringing it up. I'm not writing because I want credit, I’m writing because I think it’s AWESOME that we’re getting to the point that multiple googlers in a room will pick up on an issue like this and support addressing it, whether they are directly affected or not."

Yay?

The soy police

"A coworker approached me to say that he noticed I consumed a lot of soy products (I'm a vegetarian) and that he was worried my testicles would shrink, my testosterone would fail, and estrogen would rise. It was inappropriate to begin with, but also cast people with lower testosterone as less masculine or manly."

...

And last but not least

"I have to read 'global slave' every time I mail or submit code."

Theory: Google is staffed by crybabies, pussies, wannabe dominatrices and other sexually-bent fruitcakes, bullies, psychopaths, and Nazis, and should not be permitted to exist, let alone control our public discourse.
