I'm guessing you're very tall, and need to pull your pants up.

Google facial recognition keeps identifying me as a whole bunch of random Chinese guys. I'm not even Chinese!

You know, its not a stretch for a pattern recognition engine to see a business suit and assume 'business', nor to see person in a suit flanked by flags and assume 'official'.
Does it do this to all men, not pictures cherry picked to look overwhelmingly like officials? Somehow I doubt it.

So, wait, you put all our data together to be analyzed by a powerful program and the results it spits out are all sexist? I'd be surprised if it were any other way.

I'm being it wasn't trained exclusively on congresscritter photos. If you feed it mostly photos of men in business suits... And women not... That's a problem.

If the program learned in a bunch of random photos, mostly tagged by people, and ties and men's suits look more professional than women's suits with a blouse and no tie... Is that maybe because we have a tighter definition for men's business and official attire than women's?

Yup. I am guessing it was fed more unambiguous male data and more ambiguous female data, because that is the way our professional culture currently works - men are required to maintain extremely uniform attire and women are not.
I suppose you could tell the sort of women screaming about AI sexism that it would all go away if they too gave up their wardrobe freedom and all started wearing the same uniform.
Which I am sure would result in them also yelling sexism, and only partly because they do that as the answer to any question anyway.
