Why Most Women Can’t Engineer(r/TheRedPill)

This is explains how I feel perfectly. The last time I worked with a woman, I was 17 years old and she drove to my house once (her fiancee coming along) so I could help her with some CSS templates because she had to deliver that the next day. I sat down with her and did her work for her in two hours and this is something she had a whole week to do. This left such an impression in me that, to this day, I’m naturally skeptical of women developers (since, naturally, 100% of the women I’ve worked with sucked).

I know for a fact there are some very good women out there but I would go out on a limb and say that passion is what makes the difference and that also applies to men. Women might complain that the interview processes are too demanding or hard or “male-oriented”, etc, but it’s true that many men also have problems with a simple FizzBuzz. Engineering is great because it is very objective, specially CS – you either get it or you don’t, there’s no bullshitting around or talking your way out of a problem.

With that said, I’ve never met a woman in person that would know what a Radix Tree and most of the ones that know probably know it from an algorithms class, not because they bought a book and learned it for fun. Same applies for men too – at the end of the day, passion and curiosity and drive to learn more – knowledge for the sake of knowledge – is what makes the difference.
