The strange connection between "immutable" sexual orientation and the German need to exterminate the excess population.

There's an exception to this. In a collaborative team engaged in some kind of creative or problem-solving tasks, it can be helpful to have a diverse team, with different ways of thinking and approaching problems, because it expands the metaphorical toolkit the overall team has to draw on. It could be argued that most jobs involve some degree of collaboration and problem-solving. This is why many companies are embracing diversity initiatives instead of fighting them. Cultural/intellectual diversity can be a strength in a group engaged in intellectual pursuits, just as biological diversity can be a strength for a species in nature.

Cultural and intellectual diversity cannot be judged by skin color or gender, which means that the normal diversity initiatives are absolutely worthless for that purpose. A neurodiversity initiative on the other hand may well be worth pursuing.

Theodore Seeber said...

That's true, but the categories promoted by the PC crowd are close-enough proxies for neurodiversity that profit-driven corporations are embracing, rather than fighting, the idea. If it were hurting their productivity, they'd be fighting it.

There is zero evidence for skin color affecting neurodiversity. Once you stop being bigoted, it is pretty easy to find people of any color in any cultue and any intellectual level. Same with gender. So why not just eliminate the bogus criteria of racism and sexist altogether?

Theodore Seeber said...

Skin color doesn't affect neurodiversity, but it is somewhat correlated with diversity in culture, upbringing, background, and life experience. There's enough correlation there that corporate HR teams are on board with using it as a proxy for actual intellectual diversity (along with other proxies like gender, disability, and veteran status.)

Not since the invention of the sailing ship enabled man to travel more than ten miles an hour, it hasn't. Corporate HR teams use it because they are bigoted themselves, and can't imagine somebody of another skin color growing up in a culture not related to that skin color.
