Lack of IT feminists causes Russian women to excel in tech

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-39579321

"Alina Bezuglova is head of the Russia chapter of Tech London Advocates, an organisation that connects Russian talent with job opportunities in the UK.
She regularly hosts women-only tech events in the UK, but not so in Russia. Why?
"You could say it's because we are neglecting the problem or that there is no problem at all, and I'm far more inclined to think the latter," she says.
"Compared to the rest of Europe, we just don't stress about 'women's issues'.""

Feminists are stupid. Men can't enter beauty contest so should we protest and demand that more men should be allowed in this field?

I know RP for a long time want to enter beauty competition and they kept turning him down saying he needs to be a woman! What's a load of BS!

What does it have to do with STEM subjects? Code written by women works differently?

No, but many of them are not good in math.

If you say many people are not good at math, most people will agree.


So then you say, hey, women are people right? So many women are bad at math, right?

And people lose their fucking minds when you say this.

It is hard to tell if it is an intrinsic property (women are worse at Math+Science on average) or just poor education.

If someone hosted a men-only tech event (or white-only) they'd get ripped to shreds.

It's different though for women. They are so delicate and sensitive they can't handle any criticism of their code or they will fall apart. Something like code peer review and pair programming are both patriarchal systems of oppression. So they need special conferences since any man there would cause trauma.
