Articles like these are the reason women in the sciences are not taken seriously.  
Carmen and Leonie have PhDs in computer science.   Divya is a student of geology on other planets.  They’re probably brilliant people in their fields but when they write stuff like this, they remind everyone of the shirt incident, which reinforces the reason nobody wants women in the sciences.
There is a silver lining.  I can’t wait for President Trump to issue an Executive Order directing all federal agencies to stop using the Supremacy Clause as Constitutional justification for federal laws over-riding state laws.  Power to the People, baby!

From the article:

We take issue with the use of ‘supremacy’ when referring to quantum computers that can out-calculate even the fastest supercomputers (F. Arute et al. Nature 574, 505–510; 2019). We consider it irresponsible to override the historical context of this descriptor, which risks sustaining divisions in race, gender and class. We call for the community to use ‘quantum advantage’ instead.
The community claims that quantum supremacy is a technical term with a specified meaning. However, any technical justification for this descriptor could get swamped as it enters the public arena after the intense media coverage of the past few months.

Read: A tsunami of stupid, driven by an ignorant, incurious media, might cause idiots – invariably idiots on the left – to think “quantum supremacy” is a racist dog whistle.

In our view, ‘supremacy’ has overtones of violence, neocolonialism and racism through its association with ‘white supremacy’. Inherently violent language has crept into other branches of science as well — in human and robotic spaceflight, for example, terms such as ‘conquest’, ‘colonization’ and ‘settlement’ evoke the terra nullius arguments of settler colonialism and must be contextualized against ongoing issues of neocolonialism.

Let’s be honest – it’s not just women who publish this twaddle.  Bowderiing science like this, if it jumps the banks of Moron Creek, will harm everyone, matter their pigment or genitalia.

  1. It is a trivial truth that the people who can control how you speak are the people who hold all of the power.

  2. The article referenced in this post is literally a hand-in-glove description of how SJWs go about destroying an organization. The process is detailed in SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police.

    They have been up to the very same things in the Linux community. The “computer science community”, aka nerds, is particularly susceptible to this because the males are often intimidated by women to begin with. And nerds are well-known to act as “white knights” for these women in hopes of being acceptable partners. Very sad.

  3. “Let’s be honest – it’s not just women who publish this twaddle.”

    Exactly. Thank you.

  4. The problem these gals have is, the only terra nullius left on Earth is between their ears.

    I think that the SJW’s are given specific training on how to attack male dominated organizations, while the people in those organizations are given zero training on how to defend themselves from SJW attacks. The average college student is no longer taught that freedom is a good thing, and that people have a fundamental right to choose with whom they associate.
    Recall that at one time nearly every college had as its purpose the training of the clergy.
    Once you take away the sacred purpose of higher education, it is subject to intellectual fads. On what basis can a non-religious person defend freedom of conscience?

    Precisely.

  7. It’s a good thing they’re not really used any more, but desktop hard drives all had jumpers, the configuration of which determined the drive to be either “slave” or “master” for computers with more than one drive. And of course, almost every cable connection has a “male” and “female” component.

  8. Remember the BTK killer? He was a total psycho but he hid it for years. He always took on work, sometimes volunteer work, that gave him official reasons for snooping on people and scolding them for their failure to please him (compliance officer for his town, census worker, alarm system installer (!!)). I think SJW’s are a lot like the BTK killer. Or maybe like members of Stalin’s Communist Youth Brigades.
