SJWism again I'm afraid. Does anyone here work in one of those workplaces where they now have to go to training to teach them on unconscious bias etc?

Thus, people have to be trained to show respect to other people, just in case they are such a dumb fuck that when they see a person walk past with a different appearance, gender, sexual preference, culture, they might accidentally yell out, "Go back to your own fucking country you fuckin' poof!". It is like the people in charge think that every person below them... acts like they do towards other people. It is demeaning. Re-education programs.

They also do role-playing:

Training Officer: "Okay, class, not class as in rank as per the Linnaean system of classification, just in case I am unconsciously making a bias towards people who suffered under Blumenbach's race classification, today each of you are going to sit at a table and have a conversation with a person wearing a hijab. Now what I don't want to hear while I am walking around listening to your conversations are people accusing the person wearing the hijab of partaking in terrorist-related behaviour, or accusing them of wanting to implement Sharia Law. Okay go!"

Trainee1: "Can you please refrain from exploding yourself and taking a large number of casualties with you during this conversation"

Training Officer: "Trainee1! Bias!"

Trainee1: "Oh shit, sorry. Uhm, have you ever stoned anyone?"

Training Officer: "Trainee1! Bias!"

Trainee1: "Oh no! I did it again! I'm trying my hardest I swear! It is this unconscious bias thing that I have, I cannot help treating minorities like shit!"

Training Officer: "It's ok, that's what I'm here for, take a deep breath and try again"

Trainee1: "Are you also a carpet munching feminazi?"

Training Officer: "Trainee1! Bias!"

Trainee1: "Oh man, I can't be cured!"

Training Officer: "Dig deep! Get through the pain! I believe in you!"

<Motivational music starts, Trainee1 closes their eyes and takes a deep breath>

Trainee1: "Hello, pleased... pleased... pleased to meet you"

Training Officer: <tears streaming down their face> "I'm so proud of you" <sobbing uncontrollably>


Meanwhile, in another part of the room...

Trainee2: "Uhm, so you people uhm like, don't eat pork?"

Training Officer: "Uhm unconscious bias much, 'you people' - start again, you fucking racist cunt!"

Trainee2: "Uhm, hello, my name is Rupert"

Training Officer: "Yeah just rub it in, use your white male name to subjugate the poor fucker, Jesus Christ you are such a chauvinist pig!"

Trainee2: "Tell me something about yourself?"

Training Officer: "She's a married person and you are trying to rape her!"

It's political correctness gone mad.

I demand the right to be offended.

Yep, you have the truth of it. "Mad" is the exact word, it is runaway logic with nothing to correct it. Most of societal problems can be traced back to the same thing. The laughable thing is how easy the problems are to solve.

Oh well, as per the porn title - back to the grind
