    The whole thing is feminism. I don't know the whole story. Maybe you should post it so that I can make a valid argument against you or agree with you.

    What's dongle?


    I find "being a flaming douche" a good reason to fire someone.

    You can't really get a full story out of this to make a valid argument. You have the general story as in the least biased summation of source information, or you can(could?) go to the lady's blog and read her side, but she recalls it like a holy mission. Either option is available by clicking the first link in the OP. Also, the OP is pretty much the agree upon abstract, unless you want the other version which is "A sexist pig was fired and the strong and a independent woman is receiving backlash for standing for her sex," but I like the other one; less snickering after I say it to myself.

    I haven't even read through the whole thread yet...and don't care to..but it's not feminism...well it is, but it isn't. Feminism has taken a GIANT turn into a steaming pile of dung since it's creation.
    It's gone from equal rights to just out right hate for all men, because they're men.

    This lady happens to represent the cancerous feminist group killing feminism. A growing and never ending tumor that will spread until the end of time.
    She got two guys fired for a dongle joke (something about flash drives or something) at a confrence.
    The sad thing is this lady has made blatant racist/sexist and ignorant remarks all over her twitter.
    (Stuff like "You can't be racist against whites because they're not a minority")


    There's really no arguement to be made here, People just need to know that Adria Richards is a flamming tumor.
    She even went as far to call her the Joan of Arc of feminism.....

    A dongle is a piece of hardware that is attached to a device in order to enable some type of function that it didn't have before (and it will only have when the device is attached). For example, a USB Wi-Fi adapter is a dongle; with it, a computer can connect to a Wi-Fi network but once removed, the computer loses the ability.

    It is really unfortunate that two people lost their jobs over something so small and asinine. I understand her point (sort of). As a woman who works in the tech industry, I can honestly say that I can get more than my fair share of bad looks and jokes from men for simply being female. My technical ability helps my reputation, but some people don't care and its unfortunate that, in 2013, women still have to "prove" themselves as valid members of the tech industry.

    HOWEVER, while it is understandable that she wanted to "stand up against adversity", this is best accomplished by confronting the offending party. Had she talked to the guy about the joke, the rest of the incident could have been avoided. Sure, a joke about "big dongles" was a little off color, but the comment about "forking [someone's] repo" wasn't sexual; SHE made it that way because of her ignorance (forking is a sexual term, yes, but within the tech industry, forking means something different and has no sexual implications whatsoever).

    Really? Didn't know making a dongle joke threatened the future of anything.

    >.>; Well I would like to know what the dongle joke was... I mean, sure I can make a case of them being crude, but without the joke(s) themselves to understand the context of the situation it becomes a mere "She said he's a pig for his comments, and he said she misunderstood/misheard the jokes." With Adria being fired, there's little to no context as to her firing nor any indication that it was over the dongle issue. Unless you have further info to bring to light.

    That being said, I believe it's a time we all got less serious and enjoy a little tech/British humor. (With a Dongle joke of it's own. )

    Seriously... First off, not the right time nor place to ask that. It's bad enough this is convo about verbal sexual harassment, and what it is and isn't. But to even just ask something like that is it mind-numbingly moronic, especially when considering the topic. Second off, If she hunts you down and kicks your butt... I'm just gonna point and laugh. -Note the gif in her sig.- And @wolfgirl90 , if you do I want pics and/or a video of it, por favor.

    First, you are generalizing. Not all feminists hate men. Maybe you only run into the men hating ones. I don't hate men, but I don't trust them either. It is hard to trust half of a species that is encouraged by media to turn women into objects to satisfy themselves. Some men are not like that, others are not. It's a matter of keeping that in mind and having a basic understanding of how humans work.

    Second, I can't get the whole story so I really don't know what to make of this joke. I don't know the circumstances. The thing is you shouldn't make jokes like that in a professional environment.

    EEEVVVILL FEMINAZIS! or so to sum up that over-generalization.

    I don't really know what this story is about, though. Was she fired just for making a dongle joke?

    tl;dr two guys make joke about dongles and forking at nobody in particular, feminazi reports them for innocent dirty humor, one guy with a family gets fired, she gets fired for being a stick in the mud.

    That's what I gather.
    It was really heartbreaking too, to see the guy's apology.

    @Inclement Owl Sorry, I do that sometimes. I realize not all feminist are men hating feminazis.
    But she really is the perfect for the cancerous side of feminism.

    As for making jokes like that in a professional envrionment, I agree. Although, she shouldn't be going around taking pictures of two men in secret and posting them on twitter and getting them fired, and starting a shitstorm that the company has to deal with.




    @Miss Moonlight

    No, she got two guys fired for making a joke, then she got fired for acting like a nuisance and turning something that should have been dealt within the company into a public specticle for all of the internet to see.

    But she really is the perfect for the cancerous side of feminism.

    As for making jokes like that in a professional envrionment, I agree. Although, she shouldn't be going around taking pictures of two men in secret and posting them on twitter and getting them fired, and starting a shitstorm that the company has to deal with.

    Isn't that how the company dealt with her firing?

    Did she get two people fired? I thought it was only one guy who got fired.

    @Miss Moonlight
    Adria Richards call herself a feminist. Anita Sarkeesian, aka Feminist Frequency, supports her among other feminists. Jezebel also defends her. These people call themselves feminists. What should we call these people?

    Well, maybe had he used proper grammar, I might have granted him the honor, but that still would have been irresponsible of me. I mean, IRL, I could cosplay as Garnet MacLaine from Dragonaut: The Resonance pretty easily. If he were to slap my boobs, he might break his hand (which is probably his girlfriend). I would hunt him down for the inappropriate comment, but I'm pretty sure that if I found him, he would be sticky and smell of...unmentionable things. But I digress...

    And to answer your previous question, there isn't any mention of any specific jokes about dongles, other than the fact that the guys were talking about "big dongles". They probably saw some new peripherals and make comments about it. Like I said before, I agree that the jokes were probably a little off-color, but since they weren't directed at her, she should have just confronted them personally instead of taking pictures and wringing her hands like some evil, feminist raccoon.

    Actually, only one guy was fired. There were two guys making jokes, but only one was fired. And while the official reason that Adria Richards lost her job was because of her mishandling of the situation, it is speculated that she lost her job due to the fact that she caused the company to experience a DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack from Anonymous, as they had learned about the situation through social media (Ms. Richards put it out there) and they decided that "she should have her professional career destroyed just like her victim in order for justice to be rendered and balance restored to the universe".

    What makes the dongle joke inappropriate or off color or whatever? It is sexist against people without dongles? I want an explanation.
