I don't think the majority will always be male coders. A lot of things are social. But being able to not cut down the branch you are sitting on helps.
Some of the people trying their hardest, or having the most support to you, may not have the ability to. So why cut them down with those who are fighting against you?
Too many are too quick to burn down bridges, instead of being patient, wait next year, perhaps they learn from the mistake... oh, you just got them fired/socially trolled/left them never wanting to support you ever again? Wow, yep, you changed the world there. Or you could rise above it. Show them by example.
