Apple rewrote Siri to dodge questions about feminism and #MeToo


The irony of the situation is that in its attempt to avoid conflict, Apple is likely to upset people for not taking a stance. Attempting to be neutral is a political stance. It's a decision to not engage with issues that have a material effect on people's day-to-day lives.

Incorrect. This is not a political stance, but a practical one. A digital assistant needn’t have opinions, push agendas, or focus on the needs of any particular group. Machines are not human. Let’s remember that and instead use them for what they’re good for.
