It isn't easy to just drop a job that you fucking hate when 1) the money is good, 2) not knowing what else you're gonna fucking do

I had to improvise because it only came with 3 🅱️s and almost ran out of O's

It's hard to find programmers on fedi who have voluntarily given up on programming as a career path, otoh it's hard to find people who've changed careers at all

I am wearing a t-shirt and pajama pants today and none of y'all can fucking stop me

@Elizafox The tech industry really is a perfect example of this.

Women are always cast out once men's jealousy takes over.

"Oh, hey. That looks like it's fun/profitable! Move aside, woman, and let a man show you how it's done."

Every. Goddamn. Time.

History without context always looks more awesome than it actually is. Because often something like "wow a woman did that!" was because men saw it as beneath them, not because women were seen as having the merit they obviously did. Women have a long, long history of not being recognised for their contributions.

Yeah, I am extremely uncomfortable with the not-so-distant history of programming.

Men came to dominate programming when typing stopped being seen as a woman's job, and programming began being seen as a science.

Until about the 80's, most men couldn't even touch type.

Secretarial work became dominated by women because men believed typing was menial work and that they were above it

Men didn't even type their own letters, they dictated and read them (hence the origin of the phrase "dictated but not read")

This is why many pioneers in programming were women

It was considered secretarial bitchwork
