Let us examine the definition of sexism once again - Prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.
This implies that some force or set of laws is in place purposely discriminating against women holding jobs in the tech industry.
No such force exists - any sane person knows this.
There are no laws in place that prevent women from pursuing careers in the tech industry. I have worked with hundreds of men and women in the tech industry. None of them have ever said anything remotely close to, "we need to keep women out of the tech industry".
Now, I know that the typical MRA thinks of David Futrelle as a "mangina", "white knight", "vagina worshipper", or perhaps even "pussy beggar". Most would use the term "mangina".
This is where I disagree. David Futrelle most closely fits the term "misogynist".
By perpetually casting women into the role of victim, and throwing a "no you can't" attitude at them when it comes to various professions with the icing "because there is a conspiracy against you"...
He is discouraging them from pursuing such careers; whether he cares to admit it or not.
If you repeatedly tell somebody, "you cannot get that job, all the people in that career hate you and will try to make sure you do not get a career with them" - and tell them that often enough - they will start to believe it.
Tell a lie, and tell it often, and people will believe you - Adolf Hitler.
And here, is what I will say to any women reading this blog post and wanting a career in the tech industry...
Ladies, there is absolutely nothing stopping you from getting a career in the tech industry. If there is anything that is stopping you, it is a bad attitude on your behalf perpetuated by misogynists like David Futrelle and others like him - i.e. feminists.
