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.

The correct solution to this type of problem is NEVER to go to the extreme opposite, it is to eliminate the problem. You don't solve a problem by creating another problem.

"Reverse discrimination" is still discrimination. If one form of discrimination is intolerable, then all forms must be.

Any form of discrimination breeds entitlement. Nobody is entitled to anything, you must work for your success. "Success" handed to you is not success at all.
