Why is the lack of women in IT and software development positions a problem? No one seems to have an issue with the lack of male nurses or school teachers.

If a woman genuinely wants to develop software or become a systems administrator, There is nothing keeping them from jumping through the same hoops of fire everyone else has to. Things in this field are fucked up enough without having to deal with affirmative action hires.

something about the patriarchy, and how it prevents women from reaching their true potential, probably how none of the original UNIX team had to work for their accomplishments because male privilege just handed it to them, etc.

Seriously, "feminists" have no ground to stand on these days unless they're actively trying to free women from the kebab menace, because there are women with real problems these days, but most "feminists" just completely ignore this and whine about being paid less when they do less work.
>>
>>45833426
They'll claim that women who enjoy the status quo are simply victims of the patriarchy, or any combination of things that contradict each other but who the fuck cares, vagina powers.
There's no winning with feminists.

Ignore them.

I guess because we have a shortage of genuinely good CS people (at least in the US). (note that we have a lot of shitty programmers, though) Women seem like the group easiest to get more out of.

Plus, we have the whole girls-in-STEM bandwagon for politicians to hop onto. They don't have to make any hard decisions, and they get free vites or at least PR.

Who knows - maybe in 30 years the neckbeard stereotype will be replaced with a new one? Either way we get more cute coworkers, so w/e

Calling oneself a "feminist" no longer has anything to do with women's rights or opposing anti-femininity in society, it's just a status symbol that privileged, sheltered people apply to themselves to kiss up to their vain peers. The result is homely shrews piggybacking on the successes of civil rights crusaders so they don't have to actually work hard to get ahead in life.

Bitter manchildren calling themselves "MRAs" (because apparently "masculist" is too big of a word) are exactly the same, they just lack the same political clout as feminism does.

People like me have tried getting into that line of work, but are barred by lack of experience and by not being friends with the CIO. That's why I gave up, dropped out of school, and got a job that actually values me and my time.
>>
The fact of the matter is that there are significantly less females then males in the industry. Although the few women programmers at my job are just as competent as there male counter parts, they are without a doubt, the minority. I think that we like to see ourselves as a progressive industry and that causes us to strive for equality but it has not been fully realized yet.
>>
I think it is true that there is *some * prejudice against girls in CS. Not enough to justify the massive push for it, but there is some discrimination - people are more likely to assume that an overconfident male tech is competent than a female one. I'd sure love some of those easy scholarships, though - it's easy as shit to resent then, and then you just get labeled a sexist.

I'd agree with you on the facts. Sure, it's true that there are more men in the field, and that women drop out of the pipeline more than men do. To address OP, I think that the answer is hypocrisy. Logically, there should be a push for male teachers and nurses, but it doesn't fit with the whole buzzfeed-feminism thing.

Why is there such a surge of people these days, leftist and rightist, that desperately want people to be reduced to completely predictable biological machines with no free will, personality or independent thought?

No, I'm against retards citing objective data that they know exists but have never actually seen for themselves. Sexual dimorphism in human intelligence is measurable, but still minor compared to the similarities shared between most human beings.
>>
>No one seems to have an issue with the lack of male nurses
But that's so incredibly wrong.

Just about every single medical facility will hire a fresh-out-of-school male nurse over a female with experience because they're both physically more capable (a necessity in the nursing profession due to fat/combative/disabled patients) and don't come with office drama built in.

Also, literally the only people who give two shits about the gender gap in the IT/development professions are radical feminists whose tech knowledge ends at how to browse Facebook on their iPad.

Also, as already stated,
>complaining about men is easier than becoming as competent as men
>>
>>45833621
But there aren't enough of them out there - I (the stickler) want a whole lot of studies with a whole lot more details.

Honestly, though, the whole thing is pretty stupid. You go to any Soc or Psych 101 class and they can talk about differences in the ways men and women think, but we can't talk about it in public. Would it be such a bad thing I'd I was able to say that women have an easier time emphasizing with others than me and that I have an advantage in thinking logically? Preaching to the choir, I guess.

You have free will but you don't eat your own shit. Free will /=/ evolution had no impact on biological differences between sexes.

Look to Sweden for a case in point. They have bended over backwards to try and enforce gender equality in all fields, and the past decade has seen a sharp rise to disproportionate representation. Schools are banning gender pronouns, toy stores can't label products for girls or for boys, they're constantly told they can do anything they like, and what do they choose? Women enter careers focused around interaction, social experience, and care while men enter STEM, business, and labor.

Given free will, humans will choose what is natural to them.

You're clearly strawmanning anyone who says biology isn't everything as a moron that thinks biology means nothing. We can count more observable biological differences between males and females now than we ever could, but the mental differences between the sexes is still remarkably similar.
I never even said less women in computing is a problem going unsolved. I personally don't care.

Eh, he's only kinda wrong.
Early civilization appeared between 12,000BCE and 9,000BCE during the Neolithic Revolution with city-states emerging as early as 9100BCE at the start of the Agricultural Revolution (beer is over 10,000 years old and predates the first permanent structure).

Homo Sapiens (modern humans) are officially 200,000 years old, though it is heavily debated when they started using tools and even more heavily debated on when they started having complex social interactions outside of family groups.

There are few women in IT because of series like Big Bang theory, where the only woman protagonist is dumb and unable to do anyyhing with computers and technology, why Sheldon and the likes are "tech-able", but have 0 social skills. It's not the fault of the series however. It's a whole culture. Women discriminate nerdy guys at HS, so those nerdy guys eventually end up hating women. Because women hated them when they were young. It's a vicious circle. Permavirgins beta will say that women are too dumb to use computers, while feminist landwhales will complain about them being rejected. Both sides have a limited sight of reality.

Vague statement making it impossible to refute, but any evidence that could enforce it is easily implemented to be the right amount to qualify as "remarkably similar."

And "humanity" has a very vague and subjective definition.
>humanity means when did humans become humans (Homo sapiens)?
~200,000 years ago
>humanity means when did H. sapiens start using complex tools (IE, more than bash something with rock or jab something with stick)?
Depends on which professor you ask, but ~120,000-60,000 years ago
>humanity means when did H. sapiens start having complex social interactions?
Depends on which professor you ask, but ~80,000-45,000 years ago.
>humanity means when was beer invented (this is apparently a legit, peer-reviewed standard of chronology)?
During or before 9350BCE, so ~13,500 years ago (the cache they found was still drinkable, lol)
>humanity means when did humans build the first permanent settlements and start farming?
9120BCE, or ~11,000 years ago

Most places define "modern humans" as when H. sapiens became a separate species. The majority of the rest go off when humans started having inter-clan social interactions since "humanity" is tied so closely with "society" in common usage.

>Statistics measure what not why
And despite liberals believing the why was culture and gearing EVERYTHING in Sweden at fighting preconceived notions of gender roles, women STILL made the same choices that those in other countries did.

The lack of women isn't a problem. The prevalence of shitlords and discrimination turning women away is the problem.

So, yes, you are arguing with a caricature that only exists in your head because arguing with someone who merely has different opinions from your own is too much work.

that comic is completely accurate though in how it portrays feminists who behave like that

they unapologetically hate men, are extremely vocal and rude and completely fail to realize their hypocrisy even when its waved in front of their faces

no where does the comic imply every feminist is like that, though it shows why the word feminist has been significantly poisoned by a significant number of people that identify as one
>>
>>45833254
It won't be problem once everybody can get on board with the fact that, in general, man and women think and act differently, and those differences lead to different career choices.

Men have a natural drive to master things and to compete. It's the reason why men are almost always the top players in any type of game, whether video game or not. It's also what drives more men than women to competitive and challenging careers, like IT.

Feminazis can't get over the fact that perhaps the reason there are fewer females in IT is because fewer women want to be in IT. The few that do want to be in IT understand that they need to be just as competent as any man if they want to compete in the field.

What? So despite the fact that I never said biology is deterministic of EVERYTHING, you're still going to parrot that line at sobering completely unrelated? You realize my point was that culture isn't at fault for gender representation in the workforce. To which you stated that culture can't be legislated despite recent history showing otherwise.

A population's biology is a product of the environment, that's what evolution is all about. The best suited to a particular environment thrive. It obviously take a long time to make any serious changes on a physical level to a population.

>you're just strawmanning!
I said biology is the main reason why women don't get into STEM. You're saying it's culture. One side has 50k years of history, the other has failed social experiments.

Actually, males in teaching do get a lot of shit even though there's no evidence that they pose a threat to students or are subpar at their jobs.
Theoretically, they should be worse across the board because women have better social skills, but biology is no match for sapience.

This. Also feminists have an obsession with being men. Their perception of strength is male attributes. So they pick the male dominated careers that are the most physically undemanding that women can do. Since it is much harder to get oil rig workers, which are private businesses to lower their standards then it is for firefighters which are public sector and they dont care if someone dies in a fire as long as women can live the fantasy that they are being useful.

Yes, your point is simply wrong, because the government cannot magically change culture on a whim. Russians were still Russian during the Soviet regime, no matter how much Stalin wanted that not to be. Why do you think he killed tens of millions of people?
Culture is dynamic and evolves with people, it's not something you can dictate with votes and bills. If anything, it's much harder to overcome than biological differences--you can't fix beliefs with gene therapy.
>A population's biology is a product of the environment, that's what evolution is all about. The best suited to a particular environment thrive. It obviously take a long time to make any serious changes on a physical level to a population.

Wow, nice informative post.
>>
20f here. Starting diploma in ICT next year. There is no selective bias in employment. If you have the qualifications, you'll be accepted no matter what gender you are. I have encountered no discrimination there.

I noticed a lack of encouragement growing up. While I was taking apart chairs, computers, researching mobile phone specs and inspecting the circuitry of my toys, no other girls were interested in things like that. Usually their parents would look at me and say my interests made me a tomboy, and that definitely coloured my female friends' view of technology and what would be thought of you if you liked it and were curious about it. I was buying myself robotics kits at 10 to pass time while my dad was still giving me Barbies and make up sets for Christmas (they were nice gifts but overall technology won my attention more). I made friends with boys more often than not because they were freer to have interest in it and given more encouragement to be interested in that because it was "technical" and "intellectual".

At times I would put my kits away and try to play with dolls so I'd have something in common with other girls but it didn't have the same spark as reading an instruction manual and creating something from nothing like technology did. I could do girly things but overall I liked doing things with my hands.

I have no idea how many women will be in my diploma course next year. I hope there will be a few. I want to encourage other people to get involved with technology too, and I plan to start my own security company and run seminars to encourage other girls and women to take up technology as a valid interest and a tool and show them what they can do. I wish I'd had that when I was younger to reassure me that I could be interested in technology and still be seen as a normal girl. No doubt it has put off countless other brilliant minds that would have been so valuable in this age with a little push.
>>
>>45833254
>If a woman genuinely wants to develop software or become a systems administrator

They don't. They don't want to work as either, they want the Hollywood perception of those jobs, which are noticeably less work than the reality. They want the programmer job that lets them quickly solve a problem, impress everyone and sack off for a coffee and a cigarette.

Of course when they discover the reality is that it's a long, tough and difficult job they wimp out and blame men for not making it open enough to women, as if they're kids that need coddling. On my entire graduation year less than 10% of the grads were women and they were mostly from 'business and IT' courses.

You're damn right I mad.
>>
>>45835284
If you are a real femanon, I must say you're one in a million. Congrats on that. My CE class has 4 girls out of ~50 people. That's really a bad thing.

I don't want to depress you more, but they seem to have no particular interest in hacker culture. Here, in Spain, Computer Engineering is a very easy career to get in (although not to complete), so, a a lot of females got here because they were rejected in other areas.
>>
>>45835334
No, not at all. I liked both, but technology held my attention more. I played with dolls to socialize with other girls for the most part and it was fun. I want to convince girls (and boys!) that it's okay to play with dolls AND tech, and that you are not less of a girl or doing anything wrong. With women, I want to convince them that learning a new programming language is no different to Spanish etc. It's a valuable tool that can open all sorts of doors. Equal interest in anything, basically.

The balance is about the same here, in a nordic country where women have better rights than men, yet they choose not to go for STEM fields.

It's not even close to the same thing. Learning human language lets you communicate with humans, programming language with machines.

There'll be three not including you.

Two won't know what the fuck they're doing and only turned up because they use Facebook and think that's what computing is. Don't make friends with them, they're leaving at the end of the first year latest. Don't get into groups with them either unless you like doing an entire project yourself (serious choice there, I always did like it).

The third one will be just as competent as most of the men on your course...which as you are about to learn means she's probably adequate at most. Most of your class full stop will not be very good even by graduation, she'll be no different.
>>
>>45835398
You retarded permavirgin, what she says is that learning to program is learning to do useful stuff, just a learning a human language is.

Sorry, what I meant was that it's a different form of communication to learn. Just pulled something out of my head. If I didn't put it in a way like that then I probably wouldn't garner any interest from an audience that didn't know anything about it. My bad.

If you've got any better ideas to explain programming to people that are intimidated by it to conjure interest without being patronizing, then I'm all ears. When I am properly qualified in the field then I will be better equipped to explain it to novices in a way that's better understood.

If you loved dicks and they were all around you begging to be stroked wouldnt you also lose interest in your autistic hobbies and enjoy yourself. Face it if women were as easy as women are men wouldnt bother trying to achieve anything.

This whole thread needs to be nuked into oblivion.

Why aren't more women in IT? It's because they've been groomed from a young age to be less interested in technology since it is associated more with males. This isn't true for EVERY person but it is quite obvious that parents both knowingly and unknowingly groom their kids to stick to their respective gender code in order to make them more normal and better prepared for society and its norms.

Are all women uninterested in tech? No.

Are all women capable of being in the IT field? Yes.

Is there gender/sex discrimination in the workplace? Probably, but not nearly as much as even 20, let alone even longer ago. Not enough to have an effect on finding employment.

I do think this whole new wave feminist thing is bullshit. I identify as a feminist, that is, I believe all people should be treated equally regardless of gender or sex. I've honestly never really experienced any blatant sexism in my life or even witnessed it. Even my gf says that she has never been told she could NOT do something because she was a girl.

If you believe everyone should be treated equally why do you call yourself a feminist and not an egalitarian?

What about cooking? Growing up it's seen as a motherly chore, but most professional chefs are male. Not everything is a brainwashing conspiracy by the patriarchy. Dismissing biology as a factor in how a human is shaped, pretending we're all born as equal, empty canvases - that is some serious social engineering, marxist bullshit. It's also convenient how the "grooming" of boys that leads to them becoming car mechanics isn't a hot issue amongst feminist "equality" warriors. My guess is they see these people making good money in the IT world "by just doing something on a computer" and they reckon, hey that looks easy, why aren't I in on it?

That's a good point actually. Think about how this feminist programmer thing correlates with the ease of use of computers.
The easier computers got to use, the bigger noise women were making about not enough women in CS.
"Hey I can use a computer"
Note that it's disconnected from the difficulty of developing souring up. It's getting more difficult, and that correlates with the number of CS females going down. There used to be loads of females in CS, but in the 70s-80s, it shot down. Women played a significant part in the advent of modern computing, but selected themselves out of what it became.

>>45837246

True!

>>45837283

That's because I'm talking strictly about the equality of men and women, which is pretty much what's been argued in this entire thread. I even specified that when I said "I believe all people should be treated equally regardless of gender or sex."

>>45837285
What?

>>45837394
I'm no expert on the subject. I think you kind of answered it yourself though. It's not that women don't cook, it's that women generally don't cook professionally. Many women are home cooks for the family. When you pursue it as a profession, it's generally in a very hectic environment with a lot of yelling/stress which doesn't cater to women. Actually, I don't think the professional chef caters to men or women, it seems like a really shitty job with little pay, long hours, stressful work. Who the fuck wants to yell or get yelled at for hours on end in a hot ass kitchen?

I'm also not saying that men and women are the same biologically, but they are both pretty much capable of whatever the other one can do. No, I do not mean reproducing and all that biology shit you want to throw at me. I mean that they are capable of pursuing and succeeding at almost any profession they want, as in the context of this thread.

>>
>>45837637

Haha, like I said I'm not an expert on any of this stuff and I doubt anyone else in here is either. When I said that there is probably gender/sex discrimination in the workplace I was thinking about some misogynist small business owner in the deep American south who refuses to hire a female employee. Obviously there are still some sexists in the world just like there are some (probably more) racists. It would be stupid to ever assume that there is never any level of discrimination in the world. I seriously doubt that any corporate recruiter or person in charge of hiring would discriminate against a competent woman in today's world with businesses that actually matter.

>>45837646
God forbid I respond to people, right? If this is a discussion board (it is), why would I post and then leave if I'm here for discussion? I also don't think you understand what relevant means because I posted some pretty relevant information contributing to the topics/context of this thread. Fuck off faggot nigger get rekt xD

>>45837719
You're a sheltered little man. There is employment discrimination and sexism all around you, not matter where you live.
>>
>>45834050
You're full of shit. Firstly, more women in CS results in more chances to get laid for your average male CS student.
Need I go on? This alone deconstructs your entire nonsense.
Unless you want to claim that people who work in CS are stupid.
>>
>>45837741

Yeah, no shit, that's why I fucking said that in my reply. Note the part where I said: "Obviously there are still some sexists in the world just like there are some (probably more) racists. It would be stupid to ever assume that there is never any level of discrimination in the world."

No. Why would all women be capable of it when a minority of men are?

> It's because they've been groomed from a young age to be less interested in technology since it is associated more with males.

Not really, though that doesn't help. I'd say a bigger cause is that they've been taught to disproportionately fear failure.
>>
>>45837760
just, what? How does your point makes me wrong?
>>
If women are possible to become equal, and their potential is equivalent to that of men, why does it make a difference if more women join technology or not?

I think it is traditional that men work together better. But that's just because of tradition right? So the real goal to having men and women more equal is not to improve sharing of ideas because women can contribute anything more than men can with each other. It's because of this: >>45835386

fixed my sentence to be more clear:

>>45838024
>So the real goal to having men and women more equal is not to improve sharing of ideas because women can contribute anything more than men can with each other.
The real goal is not to have men and women become more equal in workplaces so that they can improve sharing of ideas because women are supposed to be equal and can contribute as much as any man. It's because of this: >>45835386
