can you imagine being coerced into a career? I'm so glad that that doesn't happen in America
anyway, learn to code or you'll probably starve to death
there's so much to unpack in this one headline honestly
@melissasage oh no! evil communist equal representation
@melissasage They call it freedom because you have the option to die instead.
@sydneyfalk In practice pretty much.
liked only for you having the courage to admit it publicly
@melissasage what (and I cannot stress this enough) the fuck
@melissasage "Oh, there's no way those backwards freedom-hating countries have better gender representation than the free west, they must have cheated somehow! See, their representation is illegitimate."
@melissasage goddamn commies forcing women to have advanced science degrees
Maybe the alleged benefits of coding is overrated. With artificial intelligence it's quite possible that most of coding jobs will also disappear as smarter AI will be able to code.
@melissasage *steeples fingers* ok but isnt equal representation.... Good...
@Dayglochainsaw no it's a sinister communist conspiracy. can't you read
@melissasage damn jordan peterson was right after all
@melissasage ah, the dark communist legacy of gender equality
@melissasage the best part is how the comment at the top makes the headline of the article sound like something undesireable LOL
@melissasage Sat what you will about the commies but at least they had the decency to just outright give you your assigned job instead of making you guess which one you will need 10 years in the future.
My grandmother's cousin was born in California and became a nun. They noticed she had academic talent and put her through a liberal arts degree and then noticed she was good at science and math, so ordered her to get a PhD in biology. (If you do a google scholar search on SMG Leahy, you'll see a lot of publications in the 70s and zillions of citations until present day).
Literally, the Catholic church pressed her into a scientific career.
"BACK IN SOVIET TIMES WOMEN WERE FORCED INTO ICKY SCIENTIST ROLES" is the only thing I can imagine they were trying to infer
@melissasage This headline makes me so angry every time I see it. I have no clue how people can be so sexist and simultaneously so blissfully unaware of that fact
@melissasage this thread is the closest i've ever come to being a communist
@carcinopithecus join us comrade
@ultem there's no difference between the two at all
@melissasage and sometimes even learning to code doesn't help you!
Capitalism is such a scam :(
america has "Right to Work" states
@melissasage yeah god forbid women work in STEM< anyway back to us begging and bribing women to work in STEM so that we don't look as bad,
@melissasage Steven TheEconomist can't comprehend why women would be interested in scientific work without a scary commie govenrment forcing them to (checks notes) learn things and do research... like do they hear themselves?
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
