I need terrible female engineers

I don’t think this is about tech really. This is about sexism, the idea of judging people on the basis of their gender. You might tend to see more sexism is places dominated by a particular gender but that says nothing about that place itself in my view. The way I see it, there is no difference between sexism in tech, sexism in academia, sexism in the gym, etc. They all operate in the same way. And it is this, common biased reasoning that needs to be tackled, not on the basis of women’s feelings but on the basis of reason itself. Saying that women suck at tech is no different to saying that global warming does not exist: they are both irrational and should be called out as such. It is reason what will drive sexism (and other forms of discrimination based on irrelevant traits) away imo. ☺
