Another day, another article about a female tech professional being harassed, stalked, and threatened, by the very people in her industry (this time Jessie Frazzle). I think its time the tech community of “nerds” faced the truth about itself — its not less misogynist than the mainstream culture it claims to stand outside of, and in fact might be worse. Why worse? Because tech culture attracts and retains the socially isolated and mentally unstable, a fact it used to carry like a badge of honor, & b/c engineers are such valuable a$$ets, it shelters & protects them, rather than disciplining and firing them.
