Has it always been OK to fire people because of their personal political opinions, or is this a recent thing? submitted by Froztwolf to politics

RevRiot 1 points 7 points (+8|-1) ago

It's important to note that in your example, and in many if not most of the examples of this sort of thing, especially the ones that stick, are SPOKESPEOPLE being fired by the company paying them for the fame they bring.

When they instead bring infamy, when their speech as spokespeople hurts the company by association, they're essentially failing at their job. When you're job is to be someone people want to be associated with, and suddenly massive amounts of people don't want to be associated with you, expect to lose your job.

Pacquiao didn't have to say the things he did, and he didn't get fired for his opinions political or religious, he got fired for expressing what he knew (should have known?) were going to be controversial opinions while being a spokesman for a company that actively tries to avoid controversy.

Review: Harper Lees Go Set a Watchman Gives Atticus Finch a Dark Side submitted by Snazzy67 to books

RevRiot 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago

I'm so torn on reading this. I agree with others who have made the point (not here, yet), that Lee knew everything she needed to know about this book years ago (that people would want to read it, so it would sell a lot, that it was complete, where it was, and what quality of writing it was, and how it would automatically affect TKaM), and decided at every turn not to publish it, or even mention it. And that only now, as her faculties degrade and she's under a new caregiver, she suddenly wants to release it, and that that seems shady as anything.

But on the other hand... prequel to To Kill a Mockingbird.

Duke Freshmen Refuse To Read "Fun Home" submitted by revanyo to politics

RevRiot 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago

Can you justify your adjectives? Specifically "silly" and "gay"?

Is a work "gay" simply by having an LGBTQ character in it? Making Harry Potter a work of "gay fantasy"? Or is it that the main character is? Does that make all autobiographies by homosexuals "gay autobiographies", and as such not worth anyone's time if they themselves are not gay? Is a research paper by a homosexual scientist a "gay research paper"?

And what about it is "silly"? Is it, again, the homosexual main character, because she's being silly and needs to be real about the fact that she's chosen to be gay and just straighten up? Or that it's illustrated as a primary means of telling a story? Because, I can tell you having read the book, the subject matter certainly isn't "silly", nor the way it handles it.

It seems like it really just comes down to you not having heard of it (which, since it's been a best-seller for a while, by an author who has been established for well over a decade with multiple works, and is the inspiration for an award winning musical currently playing on Broadway, really says far more about you than about the work).

Would you welcome Unidan if he showed up? submitted by seenandunseen to AskVoat

It's actually my understanding that in some places, that's not actually jaywalking then. You need to cause traffic to yield to you in order for it to technically be jaywalking.

That said, I couldn't point you to any actual source on that... but maybe someone else will be able to now that the discussion is started?
