The Thick Edge of the Woke PC Censorship Wedge By Mrs Vera West
Mozilla is introducing a new woke censorship browsers that will replace hostile comments about women with something politically correct like “boss.” That may not sound so bad to women, but where will this end, for like Big Tech censorship that ultimately led to censoring a sitting president, Donald Trump, it will not end there? It is the start of simply altering texts to suit their political agenda.
“The Mozilla Foundation, creators of the Firefox web browser, has introduced a new browser extension that automatically replaces “hostile comments directed at women” with the word “boss” across the internet.
Dubbed the “b!tch to boss” extension, the tool automatically replaces words like “bitch,” “slut,” and “nasty woman” (the latter of which attracted left-wing outrage after then-candidate Donald Trump used it to describe Hillary Clinton during a presidential debate) with the word “boss” when enabled on Firefox browsers.
Mozilla describes its tool as a means to fight “ugly, hostile language designed to intimidate and harass.”
A great swathe of the internet is positive, a place where people come together to collaborate on ideas, discuss news and share moments of levity and sorrow, too. But there’s also a dark side, where comments, threads and DMs are peppered with ugly, hostile language designed to intimidate and harass. Women online, especially women who are outspoken in any field — journalism, tech, government, science, and so on — know this all too well.
What’s the solution? People being less terrible, obviously. Until we reach that stage of human maturity, the B!tch to Boss extension for Firefox can help by replacing words like “bitch”, often used in derogatory comments and messages directed at women, with the word “boss”.
Later in the press release, Mozilla admits that men actually report experiencing more “online harassment” than women do, but that women are more upset by it.
Recent Pew Research data from January 2021 shows that online abuse is getting more severe and more common. While the share of men and women experiencing online harassment is comparable (men: 43%, women: 38%), the severity of it is far greater for women. Some 14% of men targeted in online harassment say that the most recent incident they experienced was very or extremely upsetting, whereas 33% of women, more than double that of men, said the same.
The Mozilla Foundation is known for its far-left political culture. In 2019, Firefox banned Gab’s free-speech focused browser extension, which added a comments section to every website on the web.
Mozilla infamously forced out its CEO, Brendan Eich, after news emerge that he opposed gay marriage in 2008. Eich went on to found the privacy-focused Brave web browser, which is experiencing rapid growth.”
Yes, but what about, in the case of Hillary Clinton, if harsh comment is needed?
This master of the universe mentality is seen at Google too, where employees reporting racism and sexism at the cyber-cesspool are asked to take mental health leave! See, we are beyond criticism!
“A recent report alleges that multiple Google employees that approached the company with complaints of racism and sexism were urged to take medical leave and focus on their mental health.
NBC News reports that while Google positions itself as a Silicon Valley bastion of progressivism, multiple employees have alleged that the company dismissed complaints of racism and sexism. Google’s HR department reportedly went as far as to encourage those making complaints to take mental health leave rather than pursue the issue further.
NBC News discusses the case of an employee named Benjamin Cruz, writing:
Benjamin Cruz, a former instructional designer in Google’s Cloud division, was caught off guard when a colleague told them that their skin was much darker than she expected.
Cruz, who is Mexican American and prefers to be identified by the pronouns they/them, reported the incident to human resources in 2019 where personnel told them they should “assume good intent,” Cruz recalled in an interview. Unsatisfied, Cruz asked human resources to look deeper into the incident, and an HR official said an investigation into the matter had been closed, Cruz said.
So, Cruz sought help from human resources again. The solution? Urge Cruz to take medical leave and tend to their mental health before moving to a new role in the company. Cruz went on medical leave, and hoped to take the company up on its offer for a new position, they said. But Cruz was turned down from every role they applied for, so they were forced to quit.
“After I made that complaint, my work started getting pushed out from under me, but my team acted like everything was fine. I wanted to find help. When the medical leave was recommended to me, it was like an automatic process,” Cruz told NBC.
Google reportedly declined to comment on Cruz’s allegations when contacted by NBC. Cruz’s experience with Google is similar to multiple former and current employees, including two prominent Black women, Timnit Gebru and April Curley.
Breitbart News reported on Gebru and Curley who were both pushed out of Google at the end of last year over their complaints about how Google handled racial and gender discrimination issues and attempted to force them to hide AI research data that appeared to show racial bias.
Following Gebru and Curley’s departure, nine other current and former Google employees have come forward with stories of similar treatment. The employees consulted Google’s human resources department after colleagues made comments about their skin color or Black hairstyles or made sexually inappropriate comments.”
