There are lots of campaigns to get more “women in tech”. One thing that keeps coming up in response is “why aren’t there any campaigns to get more men to become elementary school teachers?” That is a valid question to ask. It exposes the “women in tech” campaigns for what they really are which isn’t an attempt to create a more even gender distribution. It’s an attempt to force men out of tech so that women can take it over while at the same retain control over female dominated professions like elementary education. It’s also an attempt to get women “jobs” where they don’t have to do any work or produce anything of value like “diversity coordinator”.
It’s also important to look at this from the opposite direction. Here is a chart of jobs which the percentage of men in them. (The image is large so you may need to click on it to see it):
There are lots of jobs with higher percentages of men before you even get to the tech industry. Look at the last job on the list, Boilermakers. The percentage of women boilermakers is 0.2%. In other words only 1 out of 500 boilermakers is a woman. Feminists should be talking about this because it’s the job with the lowest percentage of women in it. Yet, feminists will never talk about this. That’s because being a boilermaker is hard work where you have to get your hands dirty and have to produce tangible objects.
Any woman who complains about the lack of women in tech is a hypocrite and a fraud unless she’s willing to become a boilermaker.
