Intel doubles its bounty for women and ethnic minorities


Re: Questions

They do, however, flock to the Maori studies and women's studies courses - neither of which is any use for employment. Which pretty much says it all. There's more money/satisfaction to be made in being outraged, offended, and discriminated against than in actually performing work for pay. Reminds me of a conversation I recently had:

Outrageist: "There aren't enough women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math professions."

Me: "What was your major?"

Outrageist: "Womyn's Studies"

Me: "..."

In a normal world, I'd have asked her why she wasn't in such a major -- but I'd like to keep my job, and so freedom of speech went right down the old crapper.
