Re: This needs to stop

@Juillen 1 - very nicely summed up.

A fair and pleasant world to live in, and one to strive for, is one in which there is equality of *opportunity*. What SJW types aim for is an equality of *outcome*, and if it's necessary to force some square pegs into round holes to get there so be it.

As a matter of fact, in the Nordic countries which are widely recognised as the most egalitarian communities, where equality of opportunity is highest, you get less equality of outcome. In other words, when women are given the *choice*, they mostly *choose* to stay away from IT and more towards, for example, the life sciences.
