I’m a good software engineer.

“ From what I’ve gathered online, some guy said that women aren’t good developers”-This isn’t at all what the document said. He argues that the traits that lead people to become engineers are less common in woman. These traits are binary; you have them or you don’t. He’s not making a statement on the relative quality of female and male engineers.

I realize that as a woman in engineering you deal with a lot of things I don’t and I sympathize with your struggle. But regardless of whatever your personal plight in this world may be we can all agree that ignorance is a common enemy. It breeds hates, discrimination and a lot of the situations that I’m guessing inspired your article. But ignorance does not fight ignorance. We fight bigotry by challenging ourselves to face our own biases everyday. While I think your words were intended to encourage unity and peace, by putting one more emotional and uniformed opinion into the world you’re not helping anyone.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
