In the News This topic comes up quite a lot on technology websites, but I generally try to steer clear from it as much as possible, since I'm not the one to talk about it (you know, with me being a man and all that), however, I feel it might be a good idea to just get my opinion out there and be done with it. The topic of women in IT is a hot-button issue, so let me just go out guns blazing: assuming women need special treatment, help, protection, and affirmative action is just as insulting and degrading as outright claiming women have no place in IT - maybe even more so.

When you resort to name-calling, it is a flag to most people that you have no argument. Furthermore, your vulgarity indicates you might have forgotten a sentence in the "Implicit trust" section of this website ("We like to think we can trust our readers to behave nicely.")

Affirmative Action is a PC term for reverse discrimination. It is just as wrong as the original discrimination and it does nothing to solve the original problem. Like several posters have said, it creates resentment for a lot of people.
