What does “Women in Tech” mean? This should be self evident, but not when you put male to female transsexuals in the mix. I found this subreddit called GenderCritical. It’s a subreddit for feminists who think that male to female transsexuals are a conspiracy by men to oppress women. One of the posts on this reddit was how male to female transexuals were forcing actual women out of the Women in Tech movement (and out of the tech industry). This is apparently a plot to keep women out of the tech industry. The comments are even better such as this one where they believe that male to female transsexuals are getting better jobs than actual women. The reason why this is happening in the tech industry according to them is because the men who started the tech industry are socially maladjusted guys who really hate women, unlike plain old misogynists:
I don’t see a lot of other industries really hating women. Sure, misogyny has been a part of the fabric for a long time because it’s been a part of the social structure for forever.
Tech was started and built by deeply socially maladjusted males. They used their technical expertise to cover for their massive insecurities. Social media is basically the social version of all of the misogyny and awkwardness of an industry that maintains hatred of women as a cornerstone.
This is an example of why accusations of transphobia should be used against accusations of sexism/misogyny. Let the male to female transsexuals and women fight over what the women in “women in tech” means. If they can’t define what “woman” means then there is no need for “women in tech” nonsense, then the tech industry can’t be sexist and can’t be expected to increase the percentage of women in tech because no one knows what a “woman” is.
