Comment the nerd factor (Score 0, Redundant) 596

The other side of the "nerd factor":
Attractive women in the field aren't taken seriously.

I have a friend, who is a very beautiful, stylish woman who was graduating at the top of her class in computer science at UCSC during the height of the dot-com boom. We went to a job fair, and stopped at a booth for Nokia. The guy running the booth looked her up and down, and asked "Are you looking for a receptionist position?".

With that sort of attitude towards us, is it any wonder we don't stay?
