What is it like having to interview women for tech jobs? Here is one man’s experience:
I’ve met some that aren’t, but the vast majority that I interview are just terrible people — one even threatened to sue me personally for being sexist if she didn’t get the job. A few of the men are like that as well, but in my experience that’s a very woman-dominated thing. Thankfully the social justicey candidates (both men and women) tend to also suck at programming, so they’re disqualified right off the bat based on lack of skills.
This is why feminists are trying to force codes of conduct on to open source projects that include (among other attacks on men) “diversity in technical ability” such as in this code of conduct being adopted by GitHub. (Yes, GitHub is actually adopting a code of conduct that includes “diversity in technical ability”. I’m not exaggerating this.) If a person is going to work on something having to do with programming, they need to have some skills in programming. This presents a problem for feminists trying to take over open source software since open source projects are understandably run by programmers. They have no reason to listen to feminists who have no programming skills and not history of technical contributions to open source projects. Thus, the only way for feminists to force men out of open source is to attack the idea of technical skills directly, and “diversity in technical ability” is the feminist way of doing that. (That is what happened with #OpalGate. Feminists with no programming skills and no history of programming attacked a man experienced in programming and with a long history of contributing to Opal.)
Right now such codes of conduct are only being forced on to open source projects. The next step will be to force “diversity in technical ability” into the hiring process. Affirmative action already leads to hiring less qualified and unqualified women over more qualified men. “Diversity in technical ability” will simply make this explicit for the tech industry.
