If we're so put upon, then why is it that 90+% of the developers I've worked with, spanning some 20 years, are male?
The affirmative action programs you guys complain about are attempts to level the playing field.
Analogy time. Suppose you have some scales. On one side is something covered with a tissue. You can't see what it is, but it's obviously heavy because that side of the scale is touching the floor.
On the other side people keep adding weights, with only slight movements in the scales, the scales are still leaning the original way.
It's obvious in this case that the people adding weights are just trying to balance the scale. But you and the other MRAs ignore the state of the scale and instead focus on the adding of weights, insisting that anyone adding weights to one side must be making it lean the other way, and that is already is, and so on.
Men continue to be heavily represented in IT. In Google, which is sponsoring this event, women have only marginal representation within the company.
And our rights aren't being threatened. We still have what we have. Nobody's picking up the tissue, removing anything, and putting it back. Instead, they're just adding more weights to the other tray.
