    I'd prefer a meritocratic society for the most part - being chosen to take a job specifically for the grounds that there's not enough 'X' of this ethnicity/gender rather than merit is just utter nonsense.

    How is it a double standard?

    I couldn't care, I have seen some very good male nurses.
    Did you campaign for more of them to redress any imbalance in the overall number?

    It always confuses me when people complain about a "lack of women" in technology careers, for example, but nobody ever complains about a "lack of men" in nursing, for example.

    Seems like society is quite inconsistent on these issues.

    I don't really think diversity in itself matters much, as long as the recruitment system is fair and without bias.
    Western society (education, business and the legal system) is now completely sexist in favour of women.

    Goodbye sweet western world.

    Let's be honest, the most popular, trending posts that aren't by celebrities tend to be made by minorities or women. I can't remember the last time I retweeted something funny or particularly relevant by a straight, white male. That's not saying that straight, white men can't produce that content, but anecdotally, they don't really produce content me or my friends typically like or retweet. So I can understand why Twitter wants to increase diversity. They need fresh, young minds that are in tune with what is popular, and if it's mainly minorities and females producing the best content, it makes sense to increase diversity.

    That's a huge exaggeration lol
    It isnt, "diversity" is basically anti white, being white is in some ways a negative now for a lot of things, especially if you are a male.
