One of the women responsible the current war on men working in the tech industry is Elissa Shevinsky.  She wrote an article in 2013 accusing men working in tech of being misogynists, but now she’s says that she is sorry about it:

Shevinsky is now sorry for whatever role she played in creating all of this outrage and silliness. She’s sorry, she writes in her new book, Lean Out, and she adds that her initial position was “flawed.”

“I’m glad to come out in ‘Lean Out’ and say that my original essay — the one that has been the foundation for people assuming that I am [a social justice warrior] — was deeply flawed,” Shevinsky told the Washington Examiner. “I do see sexism and gender issues, a culture war, in Silicon Valley, but the knee-jerk responses (recruit more women! attack the men!) are not the answer.”

Shevinsky still thinks that the tech industry is full of misogynist neckbeards, otherwise she wouldn’t have said that there is “sexism and gender issues, a culture war, in Silicon Valley”.  She is a SJW for believing that.  What happened is that Shevinsky realized that the current feminist attack on men working in the tech industry was not working.  (She is also using this as an excuse to generate publicity for her book.)

Shevinsky confirmed this when she did an AMA on KotakuInAction when she responded to a question asking if sexism was worse in the tech industry:

Tech seems worse, for some reason. It may have to do with the subjectivity that goes into who gets funded and promoted. It may have to do with the collaborative nature of the work (so there is a lot of interaction between people) Also since there are so few women, the women who are in tech get hit on like all the time. And that’s kinda awk for everyone.

Men working in tech hitting on women is sexism?  As we know from incidents like the Scott Aaronson affair, a lot of men working in tech will choose to never hit on women.  Shevinsky will probably accuse those men of sexism too.  Regardless of that any woman who thinks that men hitting on women is sexism because they work in tech clearly can’t be sorry about helping to start a war on men working in the tech industry.

  1. The true sexism is her demonising normal healthy male sexuality …

    What about all the freaking female harrassement men get as male nurses or even worse as teachers, where male sexuality is virtually outlawed & reframed as paedo hysteria

    This is how virulently bigoted women really are in female only spaces

    Wheres the outrage & sexism when men are labelled as paedos & perverts in female only spaces …

    Again women dont take over a male only space by being productive, they take over a place by marginalizing men & stripping them of their rights

    When a woman accusses a man of being a pervert, she’s nothing more then a white supremacist, trying to use her vagina & genitals to attack a man

    She should be labelled as a hate group, & treated as a klu klux member

    Again this is essentially what happens in a christian female pedestalising society

    Men are attacked for centuries by white female supremacists created by the pedestalisation of christians

    Feminism & sjw’s are white supremacy klu klux klans, funded & created by male hating tradcons & male hating christians

    Everytime they attack men in tech, they burn a cross in someones front lawn

  2. Women don’t want to be around nerds, but nerds sometimes make a lot of money and women do want to be around that. So women want to work in tech but not have to ever deal with or touch the men that do. Getting hit on is only ‘awk’ (kill me) because the men are undesirable. Women who work in investment banking or sports clubs curiously don’t complain about it.
