Subject [PATCH]CodingStyle: Inclusive Terminology
From Dan Williams <>
Date Sat, 04 Jul 2020 13:02:51 -0700

Recent events have prompted a Linux position statement on inclusive
terminology. Given that Linux maintains a coding-style and its own
idiomatic set of terminology here is a proposal to answer the call to
replace non-inclusive terminology.

The information security (infosec) community has angrily reacted today to calls to abandon the use of the 'black hat' and 'white hat' terms, citing that the two, and especially 'black hat,' have nothing to do with racial stereotyping.

Discussions about the topic started late last night after David Kleidermacher, VP of Engineering at Google, and in charge of Android Security and the Google Play Store, withdrew from a scheduled talk he was set to give in August at the Black Hat USA 2020 security conference.

In his withdrawal announcement, Kleidermacher asked the infosec industry to consider replacing terms like black hat, white hat, and man-in-the-middle with neutral alternatives.

These changes remove harmful associations, promote inclusion, and hel

Ray Bradbury: "Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off!" #Playboy interview, 1996

I foresaw political correctness 43 years ago. … whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. … I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is bullshit. You can't fool around with the dangerous notion of telling a university what to teach and what not to.

I'd hate to live in the authoritarian fantasy that people dream about on twitter...
Everything is subject to censorship and bashing, so-called anti-racism, sexism and so on. Everything is good for attacking people freely, all these people destroy their own causes by making them as hateful as possible.

I didn't realize this show was a show at first. I thought it was a concept that was being talked about on shows I already listened to, but instead, it was the host describing where the title came from. They were making the show for almost 4 years before I started to listen to it.

"Code-Switching" is something almost everybody does. The more power you have the less you have to do it. If you change how you interact with people at work or school so that it's different from how you interact with friends in a locker room, a bar, a living room playing video games, and so on, you have done code-switching.

If you have interacted with a minority in an environment that you were in the majority and they were not, they probably had to code-switch to please you.

This podcast is good enough that you should just start at the first one and listen your way through all of them to get up to date.

Trading Standards squad targets anti-5G USB stick

Trading Standards officers are seeking to halt sales of a device that has been claimed to offer protection against the supposed dangers of 5G via use of quantum technology.

Cyber-security experts say the £339 5GBioShield appears to no more than a basic USB drive.

"We consider it to be a scam," Stephen Knight, operations director for London Trading Standards told the BBC.

His said his team is working with City of London Police's Action Fraud squad.

They are seeking a court order to take down the company's website.

Bernie Sanders is doing much worse against Joe Biden than he did against Hillary Clinton. Notice the difference?

I hate being called smart. Not because I believe it’s false, not out any sort of modesty, but because of what usually follows. Because usually when someone is saying I’m smart, or observing just how smart I am, it’s usually followed by one of two things — how I’m squandering my potential, or their jealousy because they want to feel smarter than me.

I was the gifted child. The one who read above her grade level, who took to things easily, who could come up with the clever ideas. I was the one the straight A students wanted in their lab group in high school, but didn’t have the time of the day for me outside of class. But my grades were always on the brink of failing or only just passing. I didn’t want to pay attention in class, I didn’t bother to study for tests. Why wasn’t I trying?

In elementary school, I was singled out for a special class. I was told it was an advanced class, and it meant I got to leave my regular cl... Show more...

The #Sexism of #SearchEngines

Search engines seem to classify female naked skin simply as "more relevant", whereas men are mostly in dark suits. And so search engines manifest sexist structures.

How you can test it:

Choose a search engine like #DuckDuckGo, #Google or #Bing. Turn "Safe Search" off. Search for a typical male first name then for a typical female one.

Johnson was challenged by one caller about an article he wrote in 1995 in which he blamed single mothers for “producing a generation of ill-raised, ignorant, aggressive and illegitimate children.”

The caller, Ruth from Oldham, said: “I am a single mother. I don’t appreciate what you have said about single mothers, and by implication my family. Why are you happy to criticise people like me, when you refuse to discuss your family?”

It is known that Johnson has four children with his estranged wife, Marina, and it is believed he has one or possibly more offspring from other relationships, though Johnson has always refused to discuss this. #politics #hypocrisy #sexism

I don't think it is a coincidence that this rightful justice decision concerns a woman of all police officers. This welcome decision must not erase the countless white law enforcement men who got away with killing innocent black people.

I hate when anything refers to "common household items", optionally "hiding in your cupboards". This assumes someone else thought about buying these items at some point in the past, and guess who's expected to think about it?

Definitely not me.
