"The only winning move is not to play"
You obviously aren't aware of a tool called rhetoric. Using facts, logic, and argument are useful for rhetoric but not necessary. These people are using rhetoric (shockingly well, in some cases) and not interested in using facts, logic, and argument at all.
Yes, sooner would have been better but at least they got around to fixing it, right?
Correct, you aren't a feminist. News flash: women have brains and they do what they want. They don't want to code, because they are passively (mostly) discouraged from pursuing that hobby/career. Deal with it.

This, a thousand times this. I am a doctor in real life and so is my wife. It's amazing how many of her HIV/AIDS patients just do not take their medicines. There's no reason HIV/AIDS should be as prevalent in the US as it is. Then there are the idiots that don't take their antibiotics. You have a genetic mutation that makes you immunocompromised... Why aren't you taking your antibiotics? Argh!
And before you ask, no, it's neither cost-related nor side effects that prevent them from taking their meds. In these cases, at least. The people I'm talking about are just... frustrating.
Is 15 IQ points really a meaningful difference "in the real world'?
Now we can get back to to the slippery slope. What about killing off girl embryos or blacks or obese, etc etc.
Or you know, the majority of us could be actual good guys (and gals) and actually do something to fight back against this horrid behavior...
Women are human beings. And YOU are an ass. There, fixed that for you.
As someone who used to work with research mice A LOT, I can tell you that captive mice (yes, the normal "wild-type" mice) are considered very old after 18 months, but in the wild they live around 4 years. My theory is that the real wild-type mice, ie the ones out in the field, get lots of excercise and have reduced caloric intake. The captive research mice have all the food and water they could ever want 24/7 and live in tiny boxes with no exercise wheel. Yes, the captive mice don't get diabetes or atherosclerosis, but they're still not living as long...
Either that, or they're so inbred it makes GoT seem tame!
Not sure if joking or trolling, but you're an asshole either way. Attending to career so they can provide well for the child doesn't seem like procrastinating to me. It sounds like good and reasonable planning.
That, and their customer support is really awful (the actual software is mediocre). It doesn't handle moving states to change jobs very well. It kept trying to slap me with an entire year's worth of taxes for one state. Customer support was non-existent (see numerous Intuit fora).
