  • You know, women just can't fucking win...either they're aggressive like me and get called a bitch or they're too nice and get called mary poppins. I've seen plenty of guys with the too nice problem and can't recall ever blaming it on their gender while pounding their heads against the bathroom walls trying to rile them. They'd just say, "Thank you mistress" and smile. Freaks.

    Maybe guys should get to work and make more money to support us in the way we have become accustomed so we wouldn't have to work a

    • You're both wrong IME..

      In about 6 years commercial programming I've worked professionally with probably > 20 blokes and ~ 3 women programmers.

      I haven't noticed the diffence really, the women I have worked with have generally been more consistently normal, with less freaks at either side of the passive and aggressive edges of the curve - probably because the sample is too small to get the same kind of results

        • nevermind, I thought I could provide some useful info and opinion based on university, work and actual meetings with people at cc4g who are investigating and working on the causes of the lack of women in IT -- that's not exactly pulling it from thin air.

          Of course you were just ranting about offices that suck and I'm glad I've never worked anywhere close to as bad as that.

    • Hi hfb,

      I'm always surprised and vaguely flattered when people read my drivil. Coming back this morning, this was a lot less interesting and poorly worded than I remember it being last night.

      The article was written in the tone of offering advise and solutions, but the advise and solutions were tongue in cheek jabs at men. This is satire. I write primarily satire. I'm probably really bad at it but that's what it's at least supposed to be. That what is required of woman, or indeed anyone going into the w
