Do people understand that liking beer, bourbon, and ping-pong doesn’t mean that bro-culture is a myth?

*reads the comments*

NOPE! “I like beer! And I’m a woman! In tech! So you’re wrong! There are only people! I work hard!”

Sigh. Keep fighting the fight, Sarah.

(I’m not in tech. I’m in academia. There’s bro culture here too. And the cool Academic chick. And the bros who stalk, who sexually harass grad students, who promote their male students and not female ones. And the women professors that are sexist as all get out, too. Again. Sigh.)
