in regular life I’m male. on stack I’m female. yknow... transgender.

*(edited later to add: Seems my comment above touched off a tizzy below. Fact is, people have a human right to live their lives on their terms, and at the same time we all have a human obligation to treat others with dignity, full stop.

My comment was a joke about how it’s my experience that it can be useful to ask questions on stack with a female sounding screen name, that’s all.

Ok, carry on. And be cool.)*

Hey you can't be two genders at once!

That will cause a GenderOverflow error to occur!

You're using a deprecated library. Gender was recast as a float instead of bool.

u/Muhznit May 17 '21

People being like "There are only two genders", but then nature throws a curve ball and people wind up intersex, or some people don't feel comfortable with what nature gave them and decide to change most of it themselves, or if they have Mulan syndrome where they have reason to make others think they're the opposite gender.

Gender has gotten to be very complicated, and it's for the best if everyone stays updated to avoid merge conflicts.

No. It's for the best if people start shutting the fuck up about things that don't matter. You want to wear a dress or jeans, who gives a shit. It's not important. I know i know, I'm a transphobic piece of shit. Why don't you tell that to the children in China working in slave factories, or the ethnic cleansing happening in Palestine? For gods sake people, if you wanna care about something, care about and stay up-to-date with something that actually matters. Otherwise you're just gold plating, a known anti pattern

Why don't you tell that to the children in China working in slave factories, or the ethnic cleansing happening in Palestine?

Or you know, you could just skip the whataboutisms and just care about more than one thing at a time. Surely you can take time to address someone by their preferred pronoun if they make it known while at the same time responding to whatever trending war, school shooting, terrifying climate change study, pandemic setback, or others.

Really, if it truly doesn't matter to you, then you shouldn't even sink the energy into making a comment about it. Otherwise you're just begging for downvotes.

u/bt4u6 May 17 '21

I don't care about downvotes or upvotes and i think people who do are losers.

But you're absolutely right, i shouldnt spend time on commenting. It's a mistake, but I'm only human. But lets not pretend spending 30 sec on a comment is the same as spending all day, every day, for years on nonsense like we both know these people do. You don't become that extreme without sinking a lot of time and energy into it

"Let's" get one thing straight: I'd rather not be assumed to have that same opinion.

The world as a whole is full of nonsense, but what makes sense is highly dependent on perspective. "order" is disordered from an alphabetically-sorted perspective, for instance. These people's perspectives have been shaped by circumstances that have led to them being unable to conform to binary genders, for years.

You might think that these people are "pretending", but if you're pretending that the reasons for them to "pretend" don't exist, then you're contributing to the problem that you're claiming to "not give a shit" about.

oh, okay! i was hoping this was what the original commenter meant, kinda worried they were just being transphobic tho

u/Muhznit May 17 '21

tbh I have no idea what they meant originally, and actually thought that you were unaware of non-binary genders. The lack of tone on the internet is unfortunate like that.

It's kinda for the best to assume that they mean well if it's not obvious and they're not demonstrating otherwise; if you're looking for something that will offend you, you'll usually find it.

My take on it is that there’s barely any women in CS and you should try to be nice to them so to go against the culture that CS is a toxic field for women to be in.

u/dark_mode_everything May 17 '21

Here's a crazy idea, maybe be nice to both girls and guys who are new to the industry?

u/Averagememess May 17 '21

in the industry sure but I'm pretty sure this post is more like "your friend dm'd you for programming help" I've done my fair share of being a dickhead/stubbornly giving the answer when someone dms me on discord with a really easy problem when I'm busy. Though I treat everyone this way, I think its kinda weird/creepy if you're extremely nice to someone just because they're a woman.

u/NoManufacture May 17 '21

u/Moaibeal May 17 '21

Alternate opinion; I left a physics major in undergrad partially because the entire major was a boys club, there was one other woman who went to the meet ups and everyone condescended full-time to both of us. It was intensely exhausting and the meet-ups were important to the physics professors so while I could have not gone it would have hurt my ability to work with them on personal projects in the future.

If one of those guys had taken some time to actually be kind and inclusive to me, just one, I might have stuck around because I wouldn’t have felt so incredibly isolated and looked down on.

I knew, as I saw with the other woman, that it didn’t matter how smart or knowledgeable I got, it would still be a shitshow for me (exactly like everyone told me when I wanted to do a STEM major).

That’s a different experience than what boys have. I’m not saying don’t be nice to both, but it’s not the same. One can be vastly more impactful. Just existing in STEM can be incredibly exhausting for women, in a whole separate way than for men.

Sure there’s a way to be creepy in how you help a woman vs a man, but it’s also incredibly refreshing to find a man who understands how exceptionally difficult it can be for a woman and so adjusts his treatment accordingly. If you get hit in the same bruise over and over it doesn’t matter if one is sexist and another is criticism, sometimes it’s just nice not to get hit in the bruise.

u/Averagememess May 19 '21

I'm not saying I'm not nice to people just that I think its weird to treat someone differently just because of their gender, maybe I'm wrong but I feel like it's better to treat someone as an equal / respected member of the team, major, or whatever than to patronize them by giving them special treatment etc. Also adding onto my original reply, I don't give critical responses to people unless I'm pretty close friends with them, I see it more as banter and everyone in my friend group does it collectively.

u/Moaibeal May 19 '21

Sure it is, but equality and equity are not the same thing. And I think equity should be whats strived for.

u/Shawnj2 May 17 '21

Well I meant that you don’t have to give them some sort of silver platter treatment or give them a role more easily or whatever, just generally be nice to them, as you should to anyone.

u/Shawnj2 May 17 '21

It really depends, because I don't think we're going to have 50/50 gender equality in CS for a long time. Also, it's not particularly a courtesy to extend or retract, you should just try to be nice to everyone around you, but particularly people who are barely represented in your field and may feel like they don't belong. I mean, I don't see complaints about underrepresentation of Asian people in CS or them feeling unwelcome in work environments, so it's not particularly an issue.

u/SmthngAboutTurtles May 17 '21

Sadly, a lot of women and girls are stuck with the latter. I've been very fortunate in my CS education so far to not be talked down to, but they will treat you like the guys™️ (which I don't think is inherently bad, but still startling for a lot of women and girls in the field, or boundaries can be crossed if they're not careful)

u/axng May 17 '21

good to hear that it's been that way for you!! yeah despite the initial shock i'd still take Tech Bro culture over the latter any day lol

u/ubertrashcat May 17 '21 edited May 17 '21

When women get treated by men exactly the same way as other men are treated by men, they feel talked down to. I know it sounds harsh, but it's been studied. You can frame it both ways: that men are toxic towards each other (true) or that women are raised expecting mostly pleasant encounters (also true).

Edit: Here's some research, actually related to online harassment, but perhaps some analogies could be drawn.

Women were more likely than men to find their most recent experience with online harassment extremely or very upsetting—38% of harassed women said so of their most recent experience, compared with 17% of harassed men.

u/axng May 17 '21

hey that's pretty interesting, thanks for the link! makes sense to me. but when i wrote this comment i was thinking of a few specific situations in which strangers just assumed that my male peers didn't need as much explanation of very basic cs concepts as i did, despite the fact that we had the exact same background as far as they knew -- so i got to see a real-time comparison of how they talked down to girls vs guys ://

u/lunchpadmcfat May 17 '21

I mean… if someone’s explaining something to you and you have a chip on your shoulder it’s impossible not to take that as patronizing.

I’m not saying you do that or that women in general are that way. I’ve met a lot of guys in the industry that are very sensitive to instruction/feedback.

I hope I talk to women the same but I don’t know for certain. I just answer questions when asked and be supportive when I can.

u/bt4u6 May 17 '21

In my first ever CS class, I remember asking my professor a question during an open lab portion of the lecture. In the middle of me asking my question, one of the female students started asking him her own question from across the room. My professor immediately broke eye contact with me and walked over to answer her question without another word said to me.

The ratio I had in programming classes as about 20:1, when we graduated it was also about the same too. Sadly for them, I do think they get treated differently because of that, even if it's not a conscious effort to do so. I haven't worked with many women because of that, most are actually immigrants from Latin America, actually. Mostly wonderful people to work with anyway. I don't know if it's improving or not, the field used to be much more uniform back in the days, so I've heard, and it also shows with the people I work with. Either close to retirement or young, there seem to be an age gap where they just disappeared somehow ?
