Rod Dreher (I know, I know) had an article in which he explains his forbidden love with Moldbug, concluding “A couple of things he said made me realize that his politics aren’t mine, and couldn’t be mine. But he’s the one I’m thinking about this morning.”
In my mind’s eye I see Dreher writing that, lying on his bed, belly down, propped up on his elbows, his legs in the air to facilitate the pedicure drying, as he types on his phone.
What I found of interest was a missive from “A Soviet-born US academic” who wrote:
Yesterday I spoke with my sister. She’s not in academia. She’s an entrepreneur, a hot-shot business woman, very successful. She called me to rant about how this woke rot is conquering the world of business. It’s now becoming pretty much obligatory to list your pronouns in business correspondence, and she says it’s getting to the place where you will become a pariah in business circles if you don’t. She routinely speaks to people like herself, owners of multi-million dollar businesses, CEOs of successful companies who confess to her in private that they routinely self-censor and are terrified of linking to any story on their LinkedIn profiles that isn’t completely woke.
I understand why people want to believe that this won’t touch them but they are in for a rude awakening.
Now for two years I have been predicting Diversity Oaths would move out of academia and into the boardroom. We’ve already seen some evidence of that, most notably with the greed-based firm Goldman Sachs, who will require Diversity (i.e. non-whites) in company boards before they take their money. But what I didn’t know was what Dreher’s pen pal said about pronouns.
The self-censoring is obvious. And if you want to keep your job, necessary. Diversity and Equality are anti-Reality, against natural law; therefore, you are under no obligation to follow them. And just like when the Bolshevik hit squad is banging on the door where you are not obligated to tell the truth about hiding the Christian, you are not obliged to tell the truth to Diversity commissars, either.
On the other hand, if there wasn’t the mass of cowardice in reacting to these things at the beginning, we wouldn’t be in the position we are now.
Anyway, it wasn’t a difficult prediction to make about the pronouns. Yet at this time it still appears voluntary. Though I wonder if it everywhere is. So I need your help.
Does anybody know any company that is requiring Diversity Oaths or naming pronouns as part of its official policy? If that policy is announced as “voluntary”.

Dreher goes on to note:
This is like the case that rocked the software development community Stack Exchange, which fired a moderator for declining to use preferred pronouns. Increasingly, you are going to have to accept that lie and obey its commands if you want to work in industry.
It’s not surprising younger tech companies are the most susceptible to the gender, Diversity, and tranny madness, they being staffed by the most recent college graduates, and college being the epicenter of the infection.
So those places are the first to look. However, my spies at some very large, household name companies say Diversity, Inclusion & Equity (DIE) is being pushed with some vigor by their HRs. Pervert pennants, cucked pics, and all the usual propaganda festoon corporate literature and websites, as Woke Capital has well documented.
We do know of certain firings, like James Damore at Google and so on. But these firings were all for breaking unwritten laws. What we want to know is the level of written laws.
