Re: Misguided

Yes you don't fight misogyny and sexism with more sexism.

Just treat everyone as equal. Whatever their gender ( + age, orientation etc.), if they can do the job better than everyone else, have compatible attitude and corporate culture, they should be considered. If not, it's ok to reject them.

The "attitude" and "corporate culture" aspects are usually where things come undone. Convenient excuse to reject applicants who "don't fit in". Suspect it'll take a couple of generations to filter that crap out.

But that's no reason to flip sexism to anti-male bias. Just eliminate sexism.
