yehaaw48120dYup, that’s relatable
Root7288020dThere’s also that logic shortcut most people take:
Girl? -> artist/designer
Oktokolo174319dAge doesn't matter here. Rant 'em into the ground!
sudo-compile88819d@Root Not to fuel stereotypes, but I think that society (atleast my third world one) raises women with much more attention to "look and feel" than men.
In the univ we had to make a group presentation to pass a paper (25% weightage). I got a 5 member all boys team, jotted down the facts, and were ready. 2 days before the test, the prof assigned two girls to our team, and asked us to let them add something and "manage together". Since we had everything ready, we asked them to just prepare for demonstration. (Memorise the key points, etc)
Overnight those two women changed the look of the presentation, and I ended up with a 10/10 in the stupid paper (meaning we got really good score in that 25%). I'd have gotten atleast an 8 without those changes, but the extra didn't hurt.
Since then I firmly believe that the perspective of different people can dramatically change things.
Problem arises when people start assigning roles based on dumb stuff and offloads tasks to reluctant people.
rim0112715dI think you got confused about it. From your rant looks that you are not front end developer but front end engineer. Since developer does both engineering and design.
