MIT Computer Science Students Prove Gender Still Matters
Three female computer science students at MIT recently did an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit where they asked redditors to ask them anything about programming and academia. The result of this session? Harassment and questions such as "Why does it matter that you're female?", Why did you put gender in the title?", "Why should your gender matter if you're talking about research?", as well as inappropriate comments.
This is disheartening. Did this happen because of the demographic on Reddit? Regardless, it doesn't make it right. I'd love to hear all of your thoughts, especially @csgeek!
