Would [anyone decent] rush to [Brandon Eich’s] defense if it turned out he was a Grand Wizard in the KKK? Of course not. We are allowed to be intolerant of people who operate outside the bounds of civil decency. This wasn’t governmental action infringing on any Constitutional rights. This was Mozilla developers saying they refused to do work with a bigot, private websites blocking access to the Firefox browser because they refused to do business with a bigot, and employees of the firm speaking up because they refused to work for a bigot.
In short, it was the free market expressing itself. Eich was perfectly within his rights to stay at Mozilla, but he would then face a hostile market and eventually faced the reality that he couldn’t do his job in that environment. The free market spoke, and a free market enterprise was forced to react…
Conservative views on marriage equality are now fringe, and especially so with the younger people who matter most to marketers. So the free market [right-wingers] worship has turned against them. They can cry about “McCarthyism” all they want, but this is just market forces at work. Brandon Eich was a victim of market forces, conservatives should applaud (via smdxn)
it is kind of amazing how many idiots out there think fromsoft built and scrapped a fancy lighting model as part of some “scam”
jesus christ, people
Like when women hate men it’s frustrating at worst, maybe it hurts someone’s feelings, but when men hate women they are shamed, abused, patronized, demeaned, objectified, raped, and murdered, ya feel me, so even if I WAS a raging misandrist like worst case scenario I’d be a bummer at parties, meanwhile a girl somewhere literally can’t leave her house because it’s dark outside.
