Video: Brooke Goudy on Removing Barriers & Why Representation Matters
@JPostuk: read my comment again, but actually read it this time. You didn't address my questions, you just repeated "representation", but added the adjective "good". Also, it's very sad to me that you believe that "matters of identity" are the "things that define you". I should hope that personally, I am defined by the way I treat people and the things that I work to build and accomplish and the impacts those have on others, not how I look or what combinations of chromosomes I am born with. I also would like to live in a world where others are defined the same way. I'm sorry you've been taught to think that way, because it's just not a great way to view the world (subjective opinion, I know.) I know you are in Canada, but you might have heard of this famous preacher from the US who, about 60 years ago, gave a speech about a dream. He said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." It was a pretty good idea, I think. Unfortunately, your way of thinking has been tried many times before, it's definitely not new and the outcomes were pretty repressive, IMO. I'd recommend checking out a book on the caste system in India.

@mikealive: thank you, I appreciate that. I try not to get into internet pissing matches but I really believe some people need to think through this stuff at a little deeper level before we start tearing our society apart... we are chasing ideals that make no sense and have no clear goals past surface level blurbs and hashtags

they'd just take ownership of the patents and then put it in a vault for decades so they can continue to extract every drop of profit from the derailleur hustle

replace mountain biking with a sport dominating by participants from a different phenotype or culture, and reread your statement.

@JPostuk: can you define what "representation" is? What is it, precisely? Where should it be? Everywhere? Some places? which places? Only in "positive" things (i.e. sports we think are fun, jobs we think are "good")? Or also in negative things (homelessness, suicide rates, jobs we don't think of as "good"?) I think the point is just do what you want, with people of quality character, and have quality character yourself. We are all individuals, the idea that you need someone "like you", especially if "like you" just means things like sex or skin color (things we cannot control), is actually very regressive and tribalistic. I mean, can anyone here define what, "like you" even means? We do a lot better as humans focusing on character and common "culture" (I use this broadly, "love of bike riding" or "passion for literature" are common culture, as are more traditional things like cuisine, language and religion) over superficial qualities.
