The only thing responsible for a "lack of women coders" is that fewer women than men are interested in software development as a career path. So what? I have yet to hear a convincing argument as to why this is a problem, why this is something to be concerned about, or why millions of dollars are being thrown around in an attempt to change the situation.
Don't DEA agents impersonate other people in real life?
No, they fabricate personas out of thin air ("Hi, I'm Donnie Brasco"), they don't go around assuming the identities of other actual people. Well, not until now.
Uh, yeah, that's not how it works; every prostitute asks her johns that question and they get arrested anyway. The cops don't have to answer truthfully, and lying about it doesn't constitute entrapment.

Last I checked, Facebook has brought some heavy charges against people using the site against their terms.
What did they do, delete somebody's entire Farmville?
And had her children been targeted and harmed or killed because of this irresponsible bullshit, the DEA would be singing a hell of a different tune.
Yeah, just like the cops who permanently disfigured a baby with a flash-bang grenade. The only tune they wound up singing was "Couple Days Off" by Huey Lewis.
Apple's App Store has plenty of apps available without charge, too, but they sure hope you buy some that cost money. I don't think I know anyone with a smart phone, regardless of OS, who only has free apps and hasn't purchased at least one. F-Droid isn't really an app store, unless you want to get clever and interpret "store" as a storage facility as opposed to a marketplace. It's a curated library, not a store. F-Droid is a registered nonprofit and relies on donations to survive.
I listen mainly to a genre of music and with a personal approach that emphasizes contemplative listening
Smoking a bowl and cranking up the Floyd? That's the good life!
I used to love punching the monkey, now all I get to do is choke the chicken.
They make gold ATMs, too, and the same arguments apply. There's absolutely nothing practical about it, and you're going to be ripped off by the fees no matter what. I guess it's a fun novelty for some folks, "Press Button, Receive Bitcoin." No one who's serious about using Bitcoin for any quasinonymous purpose will get them this way, especially considering that these ATMs tend to be in locations that have cameras everywhere.
Laundering? Whoa, whoa, careful! These days the preferred term is "Double Irish with Dutch Sandwich."
I wish I had some seed money, I'd buy some Bitcoin ATMs and resell them with my own custom software written by the Office Space crew.
OK Brits, any other vowels you feel like tossing in there?!
Ever hear the expression "yesterday's news"?
That was a brand of cat litter I used about 20 years ago, it was made out of recycled newspaper and I always liked the name. Looks like they still make it, I wonder how long before it gets discontinued due to a lack of raw materials.
MM's, the good old days!
Yes, NSA is now arguing that metadata should be private. Go figure.
