I think many Gay people would disagree with you (Which would include all that I personally know).

Just as many people who are born predisposed/with depression would disagree with you.

You don't wake up one day and decide these things.
Just like you didn't decide to be straight.

If it's nature or nurture doesn't matter, either way it's not a decision.

But considering just how straight white male oriented the tech industry is, it's good to point out that occasionally we have other possibilities.

Tim Cook isn't a white male?

It truly won't be an issue when the tech industry is more aligned with the general population. We're not there yet.

Why would it need to be aligned to any population?

It's worth recalling that that whole "man on the moon" endeavour, and other space missions, have gotten messed up (some more than others) because of different engineering teams using US Standard AND Metric units. Had they just used Metric like ALMOST EVERYONE ELSE, there'd be less hassle.

Because everyone else has been so successful with going to the moon?
