I love gender issues. Feel free to as me if my sex is male or female. Ask me my gender and dem’s fightin’ words!
It seems us tech geeks are not immune to arguing amongst ourselves when it comes to the difference between men and women. Toni Bowers reported on the number of women entering IT field drops and the comments have come rolling in. There’s the opinion that the interests of men and women differ, women are too smart to put up with the demands of IT, and some claim their departments are a majority of women already. If you enjoy watching a group of adults try to intelligently discuss an emotionally (not to mention hormonally) charged topic, I highly suggest this read. You may even want to skip the article and head straight to the comments.
My opinion is, “I am what I am.” Your perception will vary, but feel free to ask for clarification. After all, we’re all searching for the means to better communication, aren’t we?
