I am truly sorry if I came across as rude. I did not have the intention of being rude. But I *did* have the intention of being blunt and absolutely without subtlety.

That being said:

> You accuse me of blindness when I report what I see around me.

I am reporting differently. Many, many others are reporting differently. So, if you want to see and evaluate things more objectively, it is *your* duty to look harder. Search the terms I indicated, talk to your female coworkers, hear out for what are the problems that women in tech complain all the time.

I used to think like you. "Hey, we are in the 21st century, discrimination is over". Then, good friends showed me that not only discrimination against women in every field is not over, but in the tech field it can be even worse. They showed me many things I thought and did were subtly discriminatory. They showed me that a toy story is a whole world of gender inequality. Ditto for school, in all grades. Social pressures everywhere steer Genial women away from exact sciences. Then I opened my eyes. I suggest you do the same. That's it.
