The Ground You're Standing On Might Not Be Worth Defending [Mike Rowe on Cancel Culture] 28 comments

Mike Rowe is most famous for being the host of the TV series "Dirty Jobs" - which features him attempting to take part in, and document, some of the dirtiest jobs in America. From things you'd expect like sewage workers, to things you've likely never heard of like working at a bone black factory, to digging thousands of square feet under the earth to build giant wine cellars. Honestly an interesting show.
.
He's also written a few books, and has narrated (and occasionally appeared on) a few other shows including "Deadliest Catch," and "how the universe works" (<- HTUW being the show someone was trying to get him fired from)

Yup. It is absolutely hilarious. The cast is full of comedy legends allowed to chew the scenery left and right, and it is beautiful.

This is why she brings up Gamer Gate. Anita is a firm believe that women are strong, powerful victims. Mentioning gamer gate is a dog whistle of sorts - it lets people know that "see? EA didn't take MY side during that whole debacle. They took NO SIDE at all - which is the WRONG side. AND they're not supporting a charity focused on women in video games. Almost like they don't support women at all. Would be a shame if a bunch of my followers started harassing them and painting them as misogynists now."
.
Nevermind the fact that her "charity" largely focuses on podcasts, whereas the charities EA actually donated to were:
.
HeForShe - charity which seems to involve trying to get men to stand up for womens' rights in countries like Pakistan etc
.
Pacer - which focuses on children with disablilities 
.
Ditch the label - which works on supporting youth with mental health issues, as well as helping to prevent and deal with bullying

Agreed BUT if your worldview causes you to discriminate against your coworkers, then there is a consideration to be made. For example, let's say you're a die-hard paleocon and you believe that women should stay at home and not work, and you happen to be in charge of recruiting for a company. Your worldview could in that case influence your job and you could be discriminating against your potential coworkers. The same applies to "woke" liberals who would only be hiring women and POC. In a position such as recruiting and HR in general, it's extremely difficult not to let your personal prejudices influence your work, but also your employer relies on your "gut" to help you hire the right people.
That said yes in most professions your worldview doesn't have anything to do with your work performance and should not be grounds for any disciplinary action.

That reminds me a convo I had with a guy "I like handball, I've been practicing at least once a week for a few years. (me)-Oh you must be really good! -No I suck but I like it." He was completely serious, not trying to joke nor complain. He had a strikingly positive attitude towards everything, changed my outlook on quite a few things.
