Got em x2
When I was studying Physics at university, the staff were boasting about how my year apparently had the most female students in the history of the university... 20% were female.
@Pangbot, most women don't want to go into stem, why is that so wrong?
@Galven, yeah I don’t understand the whole “gender/race means everything” basis of some universities and jobs. We’re all people, so why does it matter what gender I am? Are you going to be more excited if I’m not only female, but black as well?
@pirey, I'm not the one clamouring for gender/race quotas, which is why i think that affirmative actions is discriminatory. The best option is to always let the people do what they want.
@Galven, you both make good points, but it is a very complicated issue. On one hand, you don't want cultural echo chambers, you want a diversity of ideas to innovate most creatively. On the other, affirmative action and hiring minorities on the basis of quotas is absolutely discriminatory and comes with other issues as well such as how it results in weaker minority candidates being hired, promoting racism. Possibly the best solution is to change what people _want_ by cultivating interest in middle/high school, which is effective, but some (legislators) argue it isn't enough.
@Pangbot, we have about 7% in engineering
@pirey, the whole thing about racism/sexism is that people were putting a persons race/sex before anything else, these peoples solution is to put a persons race/sex before anything else and say if you don't put the persons race/sex before everything else then you are racist/sexist
@Sheep Rider, why should we be actively be trying to increase interests in fields? If women want to do something they can, theres no reason to try to convince them they want to. Lots of women want jobs that are easier for families and they let men work themselves to death. Seems like a good deal
@Sheep Rider, if you want a diversity of ideas, you don't have to have more women, what your race or sex is had nothing to do with your ideals.
@Autismo, you have a mindset that is shared by nearly no one and completely disregards both how background shapes you, and that women are different than men.
@pirey, yes, and bonus points if you’re either Jewish or Muslim
@Sheep Rider, I never said background, I said sex or race has no impact on your ideals, so therefore it's useless to force it on companies to hire a certain race for diversity of thought when your ideals don't come from your race or the fact that your a women, otherwise all women would be Femanist, all blacks would be blm supporters. To say otherwise is sexist and racists.
@Autismo, thats pretty much what the apple diversity rep said when she made that "a group of white men are just a diverse" statement. But was then forced to walk it back because as a black woman she didnt know what she was saying, according to apple.
/I agree with you
Dude who cares. Just people do what they want. Maybe there’s just more male people into that field? Nah it’s automatically an issue
When we’re done addressing the elephant,
can we start undressing it?
Noooo, you DO NOT want to do that Mr. President
Women usually have different interests when it comes to career options. The reason there are less women in tech is the cheer fact that they aren't interested in that. Also, a lot of the time, the feminists who autistically screech about it this don't actually care about tech, they just want any woman to replace a man despite her skill level
Man go towards that career more. Just like sports and anything physical. Please any guys younger than me. Don’t ever let these yappy fake feminist bitches ever degrade or make you feel bad for being a man. Seriously. Don’t ever. Bound together and don’t ever feel bad. They’re misguided, mentally ill women. They have many issues. Don’t ever back down.
What I don't understand is why so many of these "people" complain about the gender disparity in STEM fields when they themselves chose Gender Studies.
I mean, honestly. If they really wanted to fix things, surely the best was would be to go into a STEM field and lead by example, instead of expecting other people to carry their burdens for them.
Man I wish there was more women in engineering, there’s usually only 1 or 2 girls in each of my classes, the rest are just weird sweaty dudes and the occasional bro.
@Kraft Punk, better a dude than a bulldyke, though.
@Kraft Punk, I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, their is actually a good amount of females in the tech classes I've taken
@Kraft Punk, my program is 80% women. I don't think it matters really.
@Doctor Krieger, never heard of a bulldyke before, thank you for the new phrase lol
@Silver6456, bulldyke was a thing since the 90s. Basically a very masculine, aggressive, and/or angry dyke.
@Doctor Krieger, no idea how I missed it then, I guess we used every other possible insult instead lol. It’s a perfect phrase for what you described
The ratio of men to women in stem fields use to be almost equal, with actually a few more women than men. Then came the home computer. It was marketed solely to boys, and the # of women dropped because it became "a man's field". The numbers have only recently started to go up in the last few years due to the gender equality push.
See it would be better if the picture next to the comment box were someone else. The same person who wrote the comments made the screen shot. That’s like laughing at your own joke.
