I love you very much
“Disagree with Women-Only anything in IT. Why put up more walls? #fail RT @RWW Women-Only Programming Classes http://rww.to/aU9kme”
“In this instance, I can understand it. The men are the main deterrent to potential female programmers. Plus, then they can focus on the material rather than deflecting awkward advances the whole time.”
“So, you're saying you don't think women should be allowed to have male-free anything?”
“I've never been in a situation where I felt uncomfortable because the group was dominated by women.”
“I'm not saying we do. All I'm saying is that if that FEAR is keeping one woman out, and the fem-only class lets her in, its a win”
“I theorize that by becoming exceptional in their trade, the unease when dealing with men is lessened due to being capable devs”
“By that logic, a group of women is not capable of creating great programs?”
“My experience is that I'm an arrogant asshole, and I understand why a woman (or man) wouldn't want to be in a class with me.”
The same is true of equality. In fact, equality and freedom are often very close to one another.
"Freedom is something that you need to actively acquire. It’s not something that’s given with no strings attached. To be free means to take responsibility, and to prepare yourself for what’s to come."
