Google and it’s continuing ‘discrimination’ issues

Even with Google’s current dispute with the U.S. Department of Labor, about which an agency official testified/described as “systemic compensation disparities against women pretty much across the entire workforce; and another DOL official told The Guardian that “compelling evidence of very significant discrimination against women in the most common positions at Google headquarters” had been discovered; apparently some men at Google feel like they are the ones being discriminated against.  :-/

As per Louise Matsakis via Motherboard writes, “The document said that improving racial and gender diversity is less important than making sure conservatives feel comfortable expressing themselves at work.”

Seriously??!!  So consideration for ‘conservatives’ is more important that consideration for other races and genders.  O_O

Wow.

So even though the writer of this piece was not initially revealed, it’s obvious from the start that he is a Caucasian man.  And he’s been feeling slighted.  Welcome to our world.

“11 Signs of Gaslighting in a Relationship” -Stephanie Sarkis Ph.D.

This is only a small part of an article from Psychology Today. It can be found in its entirety here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/here-there-and-everywhere/201701/11-signs-gaslighting-in-relationship

People who gaslight typically use the following techniques:

1. They tell blatant lies.

2. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.

3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.

4. They wear you down over time.

5. Their actions do not match their words.

6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you. 

7. They know confusion weakens people. 

8. They project.

9. They try to align people against you.

10. They tell you or others that you are crazy.

11. They tell you everyone else is a liar.

The more you are aware of these techniques, the quicker you can identify them and avoid falling into the gaslighter’s trap.
