i unironically think we should just do forced integration in STEM. its not like the current system of having white men chase everyone else out of stem is good or remotely efficient or ever going to fix itself without deep intervention


like literally just do quotas for race/gender in science and engineering. "b-b-b-but what if they dont *deserve* it" lmao you think what we have now is a meritocracy? working at any random tech co for 2 weeks would disabuse you of that notion

"b-b-b-b-but what about the capable mens that will be excluded" man we had our chance and we blew it. time to move on

@dankwraith STEM dudes are only a few steps removed from whipping out the phrenology busts and skull calipers anyway

@dankwraith agreed. In no portion of society have "the best" risen to the top.

What if we dismantle the concept of employment entirely, everyone becomes their own boss :blobhyperthink:

@dankwraith In professional sports the last place team gets the first draft pick because it makes the game better by approximating equality in results. Applying this principle anywhere else in life is unthinkable.
