Ever wondered?

Have y'all ever wondered about just how many female IT's are here on TR?

Or if are there even any at all?

And if there are, what's the ratio on Male:Female IT's?

>w> Just a silly thought that boggled my mind for some stupid reason...

owo But I am curious about this and I bet some of you are too!

The ratio may be higher at TR than in general.

More specifically, the number of regular to semi-regular (IT pro) commenters in the TR forum over the past several years seemed, to me, to include a higher ratio of women than seen in the IT work force.

Totally anecdotal synthesis of impressions on my part. But there are, and have been, quite a few damn fine professional IT women in the TR community.

(not including Jaqui )

Yeah, I wish that could be rectified.

Almost every date I go on with a new lady, she asks me my job, and then says it sounds boring and that she could never sit at a desk all day.
But i don't sit at my desk all day, I have travelled much of Canada and I have plenty of Nerf gun wars, BBQ's, etc.

My girl said that my job was geeky and for nerds! ;w;
Nothing hurts your pride more than getting discriminated like that with the girl you love! Dx
And while having a nice date in a fancy restaurant and having a few people listening to that!
Yeah sure I'm a tech geek and a computer nerd, but I'm all MAN! <

Just wondering really

by RayFoxxe In reply to Ever wondered?

owo I've always been exposed to male-only IT environments so I don't really know that there are female ITs too.

owo It's like a myth to me.

owo The sausage fest is getting to me, I need a change of work environment, I think having a female's touch within the IT team will brighten things up more.
