Re: Now that's what I call programming 16
This reminds me a lot of the Law & Order collection of shows. The female legal talent is all portrayed like supermodels. On the one hand it seems "sexist". On the other hand, that's the same ideal that women push on each other. So if you are going to appeal to the female demographic, then it's the "Cosmo" approach you're going to have to take.
Lo and behold... after a few years of this wildly successful show that "objectifyies women" you see a glut of lawyers that look very much like their Hollywood counterparts.
This is not a "brogrammer" problem. Geeks just get trashed because the media (probably full of jocks and frat boys) probably want to perpetuate the same tired old "Revenge of the Nerds" narrative.
Bleeding hearts might want to whine about this kind of nonsense but the tech sector is just the very tail end of the problem.
