You should try reading OP's post again. He said there was no "crusade" to address the imbalance in female dominated industries. "Crusade" is much stronger than your response of "there are some programs to help men." And if you look at the coverage given to things like these diversity numbers from tech companies, and all the coverage and programs to get women in STEM, it is much more widespread than the programs to help men.
No, if you read the OP's post (and I mean actually read it rather than randomly jump to conclusions), he claimed there was no "crusade" to get women in to less prestigious male dominated industries.
Mindless pedantry about the word "crusade" aside, there are drives to get women into mining. I demonstrated their existence. I don't know why you find this hard to accept?
It may be provable, but you did not prove it. A handful of crappy websites does not a "drive" make,
OK, you're somehow very biased against the idea. If you read those "crappy" websites you will see that they are part of a drive.
, otherwise like I said we can all stop talking about women in STEM because I can also Google for 30 seconds and find a few websites. The drive exists. It's good enough. We don't need more. Right?
Wrong, and you have some mighty bizarre logic there. It's you who claim the current drive is "good enough" not I. The mere existence of a drive does not mean it has been successful or sufficient. The lack of success of a drive however also does not mean the drive does not exist.
No... that is wrong... the people giving the speeches about equality need to believe it, otherwise they are hypocrites. This isn't complicated. When a handful of rich, powerful, or famous women go out and say "I'm going to do something today about.. INEQUALITY!" and the result is "So I'm going to start pushing purely on behalf of women in a select few fields that I'd like to see more women in" that is hypocrisy. This is not hard to understand.
No it's not hipocracy. No one is going to uniformly stand for all that is good and against all that is bad. The time simply does not exist. No one can actually do anything about all forms of equality in all things as you demand. To demand that is to effectively demand that no one does anything.
All anyone can do is pick one small battle relative to the whole and fight it.
The only ones you hear about are in the (male dominated) tech industry because you're reading slashdot not mining/nursung/lumberjacking/nannying/teaching news.
The reason you don't hear about those in the mainstream media is because they exist to sell newspapers etc and nothing sells well like attacking one of the largest and most visible companies in existence. So they're not exactly an unbiased source of anything.
It would also be annoying and pointless to prefix everything by "I stand for equality and I'm going to to X about it but don't worry I also stand for equality in all this $VERY_LONG_LIST of other things too and ought to do $EVEN_LONGER_LIST of things about them but aren't going to because I don't have time but perhaps you should consider doing something about them or raising money or something".
People don't talk like that.
Furthermore, if I was to do something for equality it would have to be in the tech industry because I simply don't know the other industries well enough to do anything. That would mean doing something pro-women because that's where the inequality is. Man, it would be great to so something to get more male teachers except I know fuck all about teaching, have no contacts and no interest in school teaching.
Well technically it's not, because I expect the same thing from men.
OK not sexist then. That wasn't very clear seeing as you singled out women in your writing. OTHO, it's still completely unrealistic.
You probably don't agree that sexism is discrimination or prejudice based on sex.
I know exactly what it means. You seem to however seem happy to invent meanings in order to apply them to me.
