Forever, rent free.

P.s. don't blame me you can't get by without your daily dose of outrage. We all have our addictions I guess. Mine is good times and lots of fun. Yours is screaming into your laptop at the "woke left".
I think you will find all of us posting this stuff are not angered. More bemused at how crazy some have become. Def a few angry ones responding to it though. It's very interesting seeing who comes charging in and defending this nonsense though. That is the only time we see angry comments here.
I have posted a few of these examples and haven't been angered once. I laugh every time i see this craziness and laugh even more at the ones defending it.

What are "bugmen"? Some new slang from the RWNJs?
When in doubt, Urban Dictionary comes to the rescue


Sounds like something Incels would say.

Bugmen convo aside, why did these representatives of a major corporation introduce themselves by telling us about their physical description such as hairstyles, clothing, glasses and facial hair?

It must be intended to be inclusive of blind people is my guess. But do blind people really care what someone on TV is wearing?

It helps with visualisation of the setting which can be helpful for people with low vision or later onset blindness (perhaps others?). It’s offered as an accomodation for online meetings. This looks like product training so it would be standard to offer this and similar things like deaf interpreters.

I've had hundreds of phone meetings where no one has felt the need to tell everyone on the call their height, hairstyle, ethnic background or clothing.

I might have believed this stuff had nothing to do with wokeness if the meeting didn't start with -

First we want to acknowledge that the land where the Microsoft campus is situated was traditionally occupied by the Sammamish, the Duwamish, the Snoqualmie, the Suquamish, the Muckleshoot, the Snohomish, the Tulalip - and other coast Salish people since time immemorial. A people that are still here, continuing to honour and bring to light their ancient heritage.​
