Is she going to post in this thread? When I go on Reddit and they say "Meet Steve Jobs robot double" -You are actually interacting with his robot double and not some feminist troll.

Please stop asking to be more than equal and I will stop being sexist. Equality means dealing with life without acting like a perpetual victim.

The first step towards addressing the gender imbalance is to stop these fawning articles about women that only serve to perpetuate the impression that a woman in a tech job is something special.

No you won't. That's merely an excuse to justify behavior. No one is a villain in their own eyes, so I'm sure it's all about how the biatch was asking for it. Or can't the coont take a joke. Jesus, what's HER farking problem.

It's you. Oh, it's you.

Fortunately in my life I don't have to deal with it, the joys of being one's own boss. But the sad reality is...it's not the whiny women ruining it for everyone. It's you. You're the reason people have to attend stupid farking classes to lay down what is really obvious to anyone who attended elementary school and learned the basics of how to work and play well with others.

How do I KNOW it's you? How can I demonstrate that I'm not some vapid bimbo with sand in her sandy, sandy v-jay jay?

You admit to sexist behavior. You clearly know it's wrong by stating you'll stop when 'they' do. The argument of a child touching another in the backseat.

Way to go Sparky. Keep lowering the bar for everyone else, so that you can be the mitigating standard of, 'Well shiat...I'm not as bad as THAT guy'.

Her Google wardrobe included hoodies and t-shirts and blue jeans - standard engineering garb

The fark? I am an engineer and I never wear hoodies. This is just nonsense. I would be hard pressed to find someone who was an actual, respectable engineer who dresses that way. Most of them dress casually - I often do - but what the fark? It's not a uniform in either direction.

If the number of women receiveing comp sci degrees is in decline, then start there. Don't talk about workplace problems or discrimination as evidence for unfairness - you can't tell me that less women are being educated in a field and then also tell me that less women are employed in a field because of anything but a derivative relationship to the former. I don't know why women don't wont comp sci degrees, and I'm all for making opportunities available to them.

before dropping aStar Trek reference - as so many engineers are wont to do.

Stop. Just farking stop. I know plenty of engineers who don't care about Star Trek, or Star Wars. They enjoy computers, science, information technology and all sorts of aspects of our field. They don't care about those shows, or talking relentlessly about them as if they are the only thing that was ever created in the realm of entertainment. This just screams "manufactured persona".

There is a very good chance that, just like Marissa, this lady has nothing to do with actual technology or engineering. I don't mean at all that women are incapable of doing so - on the contrary, the problem is that Google puppets these figurehead kind of people (and make sure that their events are always headed by some disproportionate amount of minorities and women) and this actually hurts their efforts - it creates a sort of "We fixed the glitch" image. It's not fixed. It's a problem somewhere else. We don't have female software developers because there aren't any looking for jobs. That's a problem.

No, you "know" it's me because you're not special princess. I'm all for strong women. I'm lucky to be married to one of them. The woman from this article is one of them. They don't take "no" for an answer and forge on. They do what they do because they know they're damned good at it.
It's people like you I can't stand. Because you claim to want equal rights but you really want to be special, and, you're not. You need people like me to justify your failures and use as an excuse, when a strong woman would have stormed past me like a champ.
I'm all for equality. I've been there the whole time screaming for it. Equal, look it up. You are not special.

I'm gonna go with something that's gotten ivy league professors fired.

Men have a greater spread of intelligences than women. That means more idiots and geniuses in the male pool. So every genius woman must be FOUND and treasured. So we must make sure that the smart girl isn't discouraged in school, and I'd go as far as giving them bonus points on admissions and scholarships.

If that had been the message of the ivy league dean he might not have gotten as much hell.

To be fair, as the guy who has to quite often do the migraine salute and explain to a guy how and why he pissed off the distaff half, a lot of the sexist behavior is both instigated and reinforced by women. The sword cuts both ways.

Now, I'm not saying it's ok that he calls the cute receptionist a hot piece of ass at the water cooler, but I do reserve the right to both take a verbal chunk out of him AND the female HR Asst. Mgr. who calls her a sex pot behind her back.

There is a legitimate point behind the "act equal" statement. It IS kind of hard to take somebody seriously when they tell you to treat them equally and then go on to scream at the top of their lungs that they're not equal. I'm not talking about the Lilly Ledbetter act, that getting blocked is one of the reasons I work towards helping the Republican party crash and burn; I'm talking about the expectations when it comes to professionalism in the work place. Act professional, and be ruthless in putting people in their place for trying to get one up on you, and people will stop trying to get one up on you real quick. There are quite a few double standards in place, but for every one that both of us can point out is solely instigated by men, I can point out 1.5 that are solely in the fairer sex' court. I've made myself a reputation at pretty much every place of business I've worked for tearing into the guys for it, but I've only seen administrative flak for tearing into the girls for it too. Maybe when that stops, people other than me won't be afraid to put an end to it or at least tear into someone for it no matter who it is coming from.

I'm not saying you're part of the problem, but I am saying if you were a biatch to women for participating in double standards and sexist behavior as you are to men, things might change for the better.

And the fact that there is legal grounds to sue after so long even with this retarded conservative leaning SCOTUS doesn't ring a couple bells up there in the noodle?

That the class actions and discrimination suits are winning in this legal climate should be a huge bellwether. Where there's smoke, there's fire. I feel sorry for your clients if you're charging more than $100/Hr.
 
2013-07-09 01:50:08 AM  
I think the very existence of an article that endorses a woman as successful in comparison as a man is just as bad as the sexism in the first place. If everyone wanted to REALLY be equal then this article shouldn't exist. It should just be Tuesday.

I have to deal with people like you all the damn time and you and your kind get up my nose almost as far as the dysfunctional trans community do, which is saying something as they actively hunt and kill their own kind for a misplaced turn of phrase.

Besides which if you want to see actual, real, discrimination go tape a few job interviews that have a M2F candidate because let me tell you that shiat is hilariously illegal, most won't even bother with the usual ambiguous language.   Until then I echo the sentiments of the other person in this thread:  You are not a special little snowflake, that's what equality means.  Either we're ALL are special little snowflakes or NONE of us are and if we're all special then it doesn't really matter.
