Here's an example of how the red checkmarks misinterpret the obvious.

How about we take into consideration to whom we're speaking, and use seasons for your local friends, and global language for global conversations?

Can we please stop trying to kill context?  Context is important, and sometimes it's okay to say things, where other times it's not - there's no one-size rule (usually...but not always - hey look it's context again!).

Wait, we're mocking blue checkmarks now?

I must have missed the memo.

The person insisting Europe is in the Southern Hemisphere is certainly making me question my sanity, or I'm in awe of their sarcasm.

Tell her having a blue check is offensive to people with color blindness.

It's so freaking weird - my company got bought out, and Q1 starts on January 1!
After 35 years in the workforce, for the first time the calendar matches "reality".

What's more annoying is people don't understand there is  difference between northern and southern hemisphere. I keep reading how Qatar will be the first world cup to be held in winter months. I'll give them a small pass for WCs in Uruguay and Brazil as they are in the tropics but South Africa 2010 was their winter, and some evening matches were cold as they do have seasons.

If you communicate widely with people all over the world then you do in fact have to think twice about whether what you say is going to be unclear or cause confusion.

I mean it could be really silly, if you are talking about something where season is relevant its dumb not to refer to it.. but if I were to say I expect to release a new product in summer and half my customers were northern hemisphere people I would be causing unnecessary confusion.

Those southern hemisphere Aussies have their mass wildfires at the wrong time of year unlike us Californians. Santa Claus probably wears swim trunks when visiting them, making things even worse.

Q3 loving had me a blast
Q3 loving happened so fast
I met a girl crazy for me
Met a boy cute as can be
Q3 days drifting away to oh oh the Q3 nights
Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car
She swam by me she got a cramp
He swam by me got my suit damp
I saved her life she nearly drown
He showed off splashing around
Q3 sun something's begun but oh oh the Q3 nights

People taking the idea of "woke" too far, and people making fun of them.

Sure, it's inclusive if you're only talking to the time-aware.

Your northern/southern hemisphere nomenclature is offensively terranormative.

Funny story, I was sitting watching a movie the first night with my new roommate and mentioned why would they stick a green brick in the middle off all the red, he said don't fark with with me. Turns out he is color blind, never saw the green brick.

Seems a bit pedantic to me, and rather insulting of the intelligence of people living in other areas of our spinning orb.
It also seems to be on the cusp of a globalist language movement, with is truly boring to me. I like the verbal idiosyncrasies that occur around the world.

Speaking for those of us in the southern hemisphere: we get by. It's a nice sentiment, but no offence is taken if you talk about the seasons.
 
2021-05-30 8:16:14 AM  
Good lord. This is as bad as being told - directly - that using acronyms at work is white supremacy culture.

Q1 or Q3 is not inclusive to those who grew up in non-traditional families that had sub-optimal income levels. It assumes everyone received business education, which isn't inclusive to all. Please use Seasonx to be non-specific.

What do you expect from someone who choses to use the same language American slave-owners used.

Someone should wokesplain to this dumbass that some places don't even have four seasons.  Just because you live in the temperate zone doesn't mean everyoneone does.
