Anybody having a modicum of tech support experience would know that even "point and click" is overly complicated for plenty of average people. :P

And the vast majority of all those are not in programming at all. Programmers/CS/IT workers make good money, have a very low work death rate, and CS graduates are overwhelmingly dominated by males. It's a privileged field (not saying that's wrong, but compared to blue collar work, let's be real here. You know, like work where there are actual deadly hazards?), and while I'm no fan of affirmative action, it's absolutely silly to complain that there's a little extra incentive to teach an couple more people from an under-represented demographic in such a discipline.

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
