There was this study done called “Gender Bias In Open Source: Pull Request Acceptance Of Women Vs. Men“.  This study did not show any bias in open source software.  The study analyzed the rate of acceptance from what an automated program thought were male and female contributors to open source projects on GitHub.  It also separated the contributors between “insiders” (people who have contributed to a particular open source project on GitHub before) and “outsiders” (people who have not contributed to a particular open source project on GitHub before).  The closest thing to bias against women the study could find was that male “outsiders” had a rate of acceptance of 64% whereas female “outsiders” had an acceptance rate of 63%.  That’s just statistical noise.  One thing in the study that isn’t getting talked about much is that female “insiders” have a higher acceptance rate than male “insiders”.  If you’re interested in all the details, Scott Alexander has a breakdown of it (including the other problems in the study).  It is also worth pointing out that this was an undergraduate study that was not peer reviewed.

Obviously, this study failed to show any bias against women in open source software.  However, that didn’t stop various media outlets from saying that men in tech are supervillians bent on oppressing women.  Here are some examples:

That last link even says, “a vile male hive mind is running an assault mission against women in tech“.  Then, immediately afterwards, the article brings up #GamerGate and includes the standard litany of lies against #GamerGate.  Obviously, there is no such thing as “a vile male hive mind”, but this is the type of propaganda that is being used against men working in tech.  It is not an exaggeration to compare this to anti-semetic propaganda because pretty much all anti-semetic propaganda describes all Jews being part of “a vile Jewish hive mind”.  In fact, I’m certain if you searched enough anti-semetic literature, you would find that exact phrase.  The phrase even belongs on the MenKampf reddit due to its similarity with anti-semetic propaganda.

No one should be surprised that men working in tech are starting to have reactions like this:

As a nerdy straight white male programmer, that fact that people like me are constantly being propagandized against by the media is getting pretty wearisome. Add in the apparent surge of support for socialism among the young and it’s getting downright frightening.

If I was an American I’d be thinking about buying a gun and at least having a backup plan in mind to escape the revolution, as paranoid as that might sound.

This sounds like good advice especially if you’re a man working in tech in San Francisco.

  1. I anticipate a violent revolution.

    the results of feminism has already led to mass deaths in the ghettos of america, thanks to single motherhood. that’s just the beginning.

    • The ghettos themselves are byproducts of feminism and women gaining power over the family unit (or lack thereof).

  2. In the article she said she her reason for contributing was she “wanted geek cred”. So she had no real passion for what she was doing, in contrast to the countless folks who do it for their own personal gratification and proudly share what they have created.

  3. That last link even says, “a vile male hive mind is running an assault mission against women in tech“.

    It’s projection. There is no such thing as a male hive mind, since even in groups, men act as individuals (with a common goal in mind). But the female hive mind definitely exists, and evolved to allow unrelated women to network together to extract resources from men.

    Ever see a woman’s exercise class in a fitness center? It always consists of 20-30 women in lockstep with a queen-bee fitness instructor barking out orders. The times I’ve watched it never failed to creep me out. It was as if I was getting a glimpse of some alien collective being in action.

    • There is literally no group more drunk with projection than feminists (including the other 95% of women who don’t call themselves feminists, but are). There is just nowhere else where so much projection occurs..

      It was as if I was getting a glimpse of some alien collective being in action.

      It always bugged me how Star Trek added a Borg Queen later on, even though the original Borg were entirely decentralized, with no possibility of a ‘Queen’.

    I work in tech. I’ve been living in a tent, powered by oil lights, in bad weather to see what I minimally need to survive this zombie apokalypse/sexual holocaust/
    degeneration disaster/egalitarian endgame. I practice fist and sword fighting, and recently started learning how to use guns.
    I also keep studying and gathering literature I think is important to the survival of the species, to rebuild society with.
    At work, I wear soldiers boots, a gunbelt and a warrior scarf as a form of silent rebellion, nicely within the limits of what is ‘socially acceptable’.
    Establish Law. Exterminate. Repopulate.

    This is my list of literature so far :

    Feynman’s Lectures of Physics part I, II and III.
    Hestenes’ New Foundation for Classical Mechanics.
    Stroustrup’s The C++ Programming Language.
    Orwell’s 1984.
    Nietzsche’s Also Sprach Zarathustra. I also need Genealogy of Morality.
    Tocqueville, profeet van de moderne democratie. First work in the Dutch language on Tocqueville.
    Aleister Crowley, The Book of the Law and Liber 418, The Vision and the Voice.
    — Basis for a new religion. And before you start objecting : We need a new religion that doesn’t seek to abandon the scientific method and isn’t a slave
    morality religion. Those are the problems of Islam. Religion is required to unify the people.
    The Bible, the Koran, Baghavad Gita, Tao Teh King etc. Important Holy works from as many cultures as possible.
    Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.
    etc.

    I’m preparing for War. So should you. This is a Holocaust.
    The extermination of the Strong.

  5. Interestingly, none of the Works I listed were written by women. This was not intentional, I only care about the value of their teachings, but it does
    show something important, of course :)

  6. Basically, we need to start an IS-like group with this interpretation of Thelema as our religion. Stay non-explicitly violent for as long as possible to
    avoid intervention, until we are strong enough to beat them. Then exterminate the vast majority and repopulate with the Strong. Otherwise, Game Over for Mankind.
    This is why 1 out of 7 Chinese is a direct descendent of Genghis Khan. The Chinese would have gone extinct long ago if that hadn’t happened. The Warrior/Predator
    blood needs to return. Otherwise, it’s just degenerates and weaklings remaining.

  7. Perhaps men in tech need to adopt a vile male hivemind. Because it is certain they face a vile female hivemind bent on their destruction.

  8. “It also separated the contributors between “insiders” (people who have contributed to a particular open source project on GitHub before) and “outsiders” (people who have contributed to a particular open source project on GitHub before)”.

    Wait, what’s the difference?

  9. The death of Github.

  10. “Female programmers on GitHub are more competent than men”
    Sounds more like feminist promoting their female chauvinist bullshit rather than an actual study.

  11. […] shows that there is no vile hive mind running an assault mission against women in tech.  In addition, the two examples of “kindly annoying misogyny” in tech are likely […]
