I really think a NYT that had a lean towards being a little biased against trans people but was committed to really thorough, accurate reporting would be fine.
I wouldn't be wild about it. I'd bitch about it. But the laziness and bad reporting is the thing that drives me crazy, way more than the lean.
Things you can do when aged 16 in the UK:
Register to Vote
Leave home and live on your own
Get a passport
Own a pet
Buy a lottery ticket
Change your name
Drive a tractor
Fly a glider
Be a blood donor
Consent to medical treatment
... and you can do these with your parent's consent:
Join the Armed forces
BUT, ACCORDING TO THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT, YOU CAN'T OPT TO CHANGE YOUR LEGAL GENDER, with or without parental consent.
If that doesn't sound STUPID, I don't know what is.
The Swift code to do the formatting is really clean, see https://github.com/apple/swift-syntax/blob/main/Sources/SwiftDiagnostics/DiagnosticsFormatter.swift . I’d love for an option to colorize the output, if anyone’s looking for a quick little Swift task that’ll make its way into the compiler.
Edit: no C++ required for this task! Everything in swift-syntax, where this code lives, is Swift in an easy-to-build-and-test package. The swift-parser-cli executable uses it to show parser diagnostics. The compiler is downstream of it, and will pick up changes automatically.
Trans people have to deal with a lot of shit. It's affecting the safety and well-being of entire communities. And it directly undermines their right to speech and to be heard as citizens with equal standing in a democratic society. #Transphobia should not be acceptable, ever. End of story.
If you allow hate speech in the name of debate, you are, in effect, rhetorically saying that someone's right to an identity is up for debate. It's worth considering which identities you consider to be debatable and which you don't.
Layoffs are yet another area where companies refuse to follow the science. Here's what the science says.
- don't save money
- don't improve company performance
- don't increase stock pricess
- destroy trust
- have huge impacts on health, well-being, and income of employees
So why do layoffs? It's a network effect: execs lay people off because other companies are doing it
