Not satisfied with attacking the police and WEEI, the good folks over at the Boston Globe has now turned their ire on the fire department in their crusade to prove that they are the wokest newspaper in the country.
Gender problems at the Boston Fire Department run deeper than just talk https://t.co/Ghn4KpatWX

The strongest reaction to the Boston Fire Department came from City Councilor Lydia Edwards, who said terms in the report such as “locker room talk” diminish women’s voices and their fears.https://t.co/zfGZi3EtzX via @BostonGlobe

Stop the fight! A male dominated workplace where employees have to be crazy enough to run into burning buildings, and strong enough to pull people on KFC diets down multiple flights of stairs, has (gasp) LOCKER ROOM TALK!!! This is obviously huge news, and well deserving of an investigative story by the Globe. What’s next? Men doing construction in Southie use foul language? Celtics players drop n bombs in the showers? Hard hitting stuff!
Here’s an idea – write about the epidemic of cancer amongst firefighters. That would be an actual story of public interest that is quantifiable and needs to be resolved. There’s firefighters all over the country dying from this terrible disease, and what can be done to stop it? That would be the kind of story a real newspaper does. But the Boston Globe isn’t a real newspaper. It’s John Henry/Red Sox propaganda where the editors harass advertisers of local radio stations.
Keep in mind, this is the same newspaper that has harbored more sexual harassment than all the firehouses in Boston combined. Their editor was accused of sexually harassing a former employee a few months ago. This newspaper did a big story on the pervasiveness of sexual harassment, including in their workplace, but refused to name anyone at their newspaper who was guilty of it. The same newspaper still employs Bryan Marquard, despite being arrested for open and gross lewdness when two women accused him of punching the clown outside of their apartment door.
Of course it was written by Globey hack Meghan Irons, who accused the Boston Police of being racist because they followed us on Twitter, even though she also followed us on Twitter.
So as you can imagine, this story was your typical lazy, failed attempt at being woke. The gist of it is that the male dominated FD has men who talk about men stuff.
The only actual example of sexual harassment she claimed to have was when firefighters placed bets on whether their Lt was banging a female firefighter after they found out that she was at his house.
If you think that male dominated workplaces are the only such places where people of the same gender gossip about who’s giving the yogurt slinger to who, then your hair salon must be boring as shit.
Of course virtue signaling, pandering Marty Walsh is pretending he gives a shit.
Wait….what? Why is it “incredibly important” to have diversity in a firehouse? You know what’s incredibly important to me? Firefighters who can put out fires and save lives. I don’t give a shit what percentage of them are non-binary Mongolian midgets.
So in order to fix this problem of a small handful of firefighters complaining to the Boston Globe about guy talk in a male dominated environment, Marty wants more female firefighters, and he wants to circumvent the civil service system that gives preference to veterans.
Sure, you could be saved from a burning building by a combat veteran, or you could be saved by someone who is there to check off a few checkboxes. Who cares if people die, as long as there’s no more locker room talk in firehouses.
Here’s the best part – not one person they interviewed said they had any issue with the actual job that male firefighters were doing.
But again, they gossip about who’s banging who, so this is obviously a really pressing issue.
And of course the City Council responded to this by doing what they always do – pandering to social justice warriors.
I don’t give a shit about any inclusive environments for firehouses. All I care is that they can put out fires. Nothing else matters.
Question – when are they gonna start policing the conversations in elementary school teacher’s rooms? I would imagine it’s gotta be hard to be a dude in there right? No one wants to talk about sports, and everyone’s talking about chick stuff. I anxiously look forward to reading that one.
