    1. When I first got involved with computers in the 1960s, most computer camps were male-only, either by official policy or because girls were discouraged from registering. Despite the Civil Rights Act of 1964 making gender discrimination illegal, most camps remained either zero-female or had only a token female enrollment for decades thereafter.

      As for what would happen: The proportion of female named executive officers (directors, CEOs, VPs, etc.) in the Silicon Valley 150 is about 11%.

      1. And what’s your point ? The NFL has zero women playing on any team. Where is your outrage ? Is it more important for a team to win a silly sports game then to represent the communities that support their industry? What kind of message is the NFL sending to women ? No need to apply unless you wanna be a token reporter on the side lines.

        TxUser is such a low resolution bigoted fool.

        The proportion of female NFL players is 0 of 1696 is about 0%

        1. The number of women who play linebacker in the NFL is approximately proportionate to the number of women in the general population who can play successfully at that level in that position. Are you suggesting that almost ten times as many men as women are capable of troubling their pretty little heads sufficiently to fill an executive position in a high-tech firm or coding at a professional level?

        1. Yes, I recognized a “joke.” I just don’t find any form of discrimination particularly funny. My guess is that most women don’t laugh at making less than men, just like most Jews don’t find comparisons between Twitter “censorship” and the Holocaust remotely appropriate. Bragging about grabbing women by the genitals is not just innocent locker room banter. Like jokes about employment discrimination, sexist “jokes” normalize behavior that should be unacceptable.

          1. Great, so you are all in against universal social injustice of all forms, So what’s your stance on the systemic treatment of women in CCP China. Do you think discrimination of women and gender inequality in CCP China is wrong? Should Apple continue to partner with companies in CCP China that practice discrimination of women?

            Do you know what percent of Apple’s supplies in CCP are lead by females? Dose your concern for absolute women equality stop at a boarder? What proportion of female executive officers (directors, CEOs, VPs, etc.) are represented in China ?

            Or is China given a pass because of culturally different norms

    1. Or how about the fact that the December employment figures showed a gain in male employment of 16,000 and a loss in female employment of 156,000. Women did not recover any of those losses in January 2021. Overall, women have lost a net of 5.4 million jobs during the pandemic-induced recession compared with 4.4 million lost by men.

      1. “Or how about the fact that…” What the hell is your point? What are you trying to unsuccessfully to portray? Maybe that democrat policies are detrimental to all?

          1. Your funny, Apple is totally operating in a social vacuum. Apples number trading partner is the criminal state of CCP China; Home of organ harvesting, slave labor, ethnic genocide of communities of color, concentration camps, forced abortion, sterilization, state sponsored rape of women and the panda bear. it’s so cute that you actually think Apple is a human rights leader. Talk about the evolution of Apples reality distortion field. You my friend are what we cool a tool.

            1. Now that you have explained that Apple supports the state sponsored rape of the panda bear, I’m sure we will all sell our stock. Doing business with Chinese citizens does not imply approval of all their government might do. I assume you do business with Americans, yet you obviously do not approve everything our new President does. How is that different?

    2. All Men are greedy. They pay women 28% less then men for the exact same work. Then why don’t these greedy men hire all women and cut payroll cost by 28%

      Are men and women biological equal on ever measure ? Could biology differences effect temperament differences.

    3. Beck , we’re extremely sorry you lost your job.

      No, on second thought, with an attitude like yours, we’re gonna cheer for every woman who replaces you and your sexist ilk.

      Did you ever get it through your neanderthal skulls that some students, especially those groups clearly underserved in traditional computer science & programming curriculum, can benefit greatly by having a less distracting learning environment?

      No of course you didn’t think about the need to offer a whole range of teaching environments to broaden the opportunities for all Americans did you? Your selfish asshole attitude regularly shows up whenever anyone offers something different than what you were raised with. You are a narrow minded bigot.

      Now of course if Apple said it was going to lobby the US government to fund private parochial schools that taught no science or technology that wasn’t written by Matt, Mark, Luke, or John — you’d be all for that wouldn’t you????? Back to the stone age, aint that the way to make ‘Merica Grate??? You’d say, Hand out the guns and King James (revisionist) bibles to all true white patriots, not to any dark skinned mixed race folks who actually look like the historical Jewish martyr Jesus !!!!!!!!!

      Screw you, you sexist racist pig.
