    One question, the headline stated that the problem doesnt just include women, it also includes "transgender" woman too. So im so confused right now. Arent trans woman just men who underwent circumcision or am I missing something?

    I think your idea of "circumcision" is pretty wild and inaccurate. I'd hate to go to that bris, man...


    As far as the pickets and crossing the line, this situation is a bit odd since they aren't unionized. The entire concept of "not crossing the picket line" is for other union workers to stand with their brother and sister union members, by striking with them or at least not continuing to work. But in this situation, there is no union. So there's really no obligation. That being said, it'd be a good gesture for the other workers to stand by them, nonetheless. But I'm sure plenty will continue to work anyway, considering there is no union repercussions for doing such.

    Not crossing the line is about not being a scab. Whether or not a formal union is involved doesnt absolve you of standing with your fellow workers as they fight for better workplace conditions. Its a small, hyper convenient thing to find something else to do for 3 hours on a weekday and show a little class solidarity.

    It's true it doesn't absolve you from standing with your workers, but it does absolve you from consequences if you don't. Which, for better or worse, can mean a lot less people will actively stand by those who strike.

    you're right. there are no known consequences of a working class removed and alienated from the plight of their fellows.

    Not what I meant. =P

    I meant there are no consequences directly related to your actions that you can be punished for, IE removed from union.

    There are hella issues all around in that industry, and in the tech industry all together. Rampant ageism, sexism, misogynic, toxic culture, etc. It's one of the main reasons I decided against majoring in CS and pursuing it to begin with. That, and I had no interest in moving to the bay area. From what I've seen of the salaries for Blizz software engineers and devs, it's...pretty poor compared to some other companies in the area. Combine that with the apparent god awful culture? Yikes.

    It'd be great to see some legitimate change actually happen, but I'm not holding my breath.

    *grabs popcorn*

    Hate to state this.

    due to my glutful pride of having transmog envy, my lustful wrath of being a competitive individual has turned me into somewhat a sloth when it comes to the greed of level 20 dungeon crawling.

    O well.

    Living in a 3rd world country really gives you some form of redeeming qualities. Non really cares about that stuff in my area so I wont get shunned anytime soon. So I apologize for the lack of knowledge on those "sensitive" topics.
    (Was confused between trans-man/trans-woman in definition hence why I asked the question earlier)
