Yay for fighting for inclusion through the means of isolation!
Basically just pours a huge tank of gas on the fire. 👌👌
@jhh2450 accurate analogy
It's an interesting standpoint.
Instead of telling girls they can code, we should tell boys (and their parents!) to stop dismissing girls as unable to do boys' work.
As a father of a girl I feel absolutely mad when I hear "boy stuff" or "girl stuff" why do we have to cut our kids possibilities with shit like that...
As if you would be a freak if you are a boy who play with dolls, or a girl who plays with a PlayStation?!?
People are so fucked up in this matter that they actually think their boy is gonna turn gay if uses pink or whatever...
"Ok, so I have an idea..."
"So what if we sell a $2 Barbie doll..."
"OOOOH! Good idea!"
"But, let's also give it an intensely stupid programming language that can let it move left, right, forward, and backward!"
"Wow, that is genius of you. How about this: We let kids learn OOP and functions..."
"Wait, lemme stop you there Martha - We don't need to teach these kids anything useful....it we become stupid rich!"
"Wow, good idea!"
I saw a school called Black Girls Code or something. They take it too far in there!
