Re: This needs to stop

Given that white men are a minority in the UK and in the US, are explicitly disadvantaged by the court systems in both countries and can be legally discriminated against in the UK it's nice to see you recognise the systemic oppression they face.

Meanwhile I see no blatant misogyny in the tech sector in the UK, with women getting far higher interview rates than men and almost every company having support structures in place explicitly to benefit women.

Competent women - with any skin colour - are welcomed and cherished in the industry, given equal (or better) opportunities to succeed and protected by law, by corporate policies and by their colleagues against sexism.

If only the same could be said for men.
