View Full Version : 9 : 1 male/female ratio

08-12-2001, 11:28 AM
i was reading the [stealth] poem thread and it made me think. i thoguht it was funny that she said 'eeww' but it makes sense enough. (when/if i have a daughter, she's gonna be one of those 1 : 9 females in CS... : ) i would figure that ratio would hold here too... what is all your guys' (and girls') opinions on that?!?

thank ye kindly...

let this post, or any other, really, not be indicative of my own gender... :)

>if your gonna "make" her be a programmer then she won't believe me & the poem thread is the stupidest thing i've ever seen on here

just to flattered to show your true feelings huh...
YOU LOVE IT!!!:p:p:p:p

08-12-2001, 01:57 PM
ahh that would be a good point BUT...

you need it from your peers to feel whole...:p:D:p

hey now, can't we all just get along? i didn't mean the daughter-CS thing seriously. just a joke... it would be interesting but _of_course_ i would never force anyone (let alone my children) do anything unless they really wanted to themselves... i apologize if i sounded otherwise...

again, let no post of mine ever be indicative of my gender... not this one, not any other one, not any attitude i may indirectly non-present to no-one (not 'no-one', anyone...) for the reasons i don't give or do for no reason at all... ahem... i'm done.

Damn right! It's either that or stripping!

doubleanti: If you have a daughter and she's anything
like my own :rolleyes:, you won't be
telling her anything at all.
These kids today just don't listen.

>tell her not to be what you want her to be & she may be it <

The only thing I want her to be is happy. For this, I don't have to tell her :eek: , "Be happy!" All I have to do is give her money:rolleyes:

Are you listening, doubleanti?

These kids today just don't listen.

This line is most effective if accompanied by waving your cane around.

if your gonna "make" her be a programmer then she won't believe me

That goes for any profession.

While we're sorta on the subject, why aren't there more girls around in the CS field? Normally, we can't really have anyone to comment on this, but maybe CollegeGirl can elaborate a bit? Does someone just sit some girls in front of a computer when they're young and say "Don't go near this - it's confusing and the men using it are geeky!"

08-13-2001, 10:39 AM
well that's good advice rick... :)

"Don't go near this - it's confusing and the men using it are geeky!"

good question... [insert same ?uestion's oomph here...]

>...i thought you were talkin about a lil kid hehe<

lil, as in 21. Age only matters in that their needs
increase exponetially as they age:eek: . At 14,
all she wanted was a coupla bucks. No problem.

Her trip to Russia isn't for pleasure, though; she's
already been there twice--the first to visit her
sweetheart, and the second to marry him.

Her bo was supposed to be over here in three
months, but our wonderful INS burocracy is missing
a piece of paper. She can't sign the stupid paper
over here; no she has to go back to Russia t sign
it. If she signs he comes over here in three months;
if she doesn't it's a 1.5 year wait. I see lawyers on
the horizon.

Wow...rick, you daughter is 21 and married?
MARRIED.... i don't know...it just seems a bit (or a byte)
odd...good luck.

this may sound a little bad
girls hate compiuters, girls hate mathematics
girls hate quiz, girls hate..bla bla bla...
cout<<"girls hate everything that has something to do
with brain activity...\n";
of course there are some girls that do not.
something like the 99.99% of the female population.

lol...i feel proud to be a man!
but of course if i was a woman i wouldn't care.

08-15-2001, 06:55 AM
i really wanted to say 0.01% of the female population :))

08-15-2001, 11:19 AM
[unserious sarcasm]

*in valley girl voice* helloE! didn'tcha read it correctly? it said ratio 9:1, but did not include that of the entire male/female population... therefore, even if .0001 % of the world were dorkus programmers like us, then it'd still be 9:1... [take no offence with the 'dorkus' part...]

[relatively serious part]

would you actually think that ratio would hold independant of the percent of the whole population which programs??? i'd like to think so... but still think it kind of sucks... [non-gender indicative i remind you...]

[and a side-note to rick barclay]

wow, if your daughter is 21, then that makes you... lets see... carry the one... ;)

08-15-2001, 11:41 AM
to College<Angry Killer>Girl

>>math is the greatest thing ever <& incase you didn't
relize that, i'm a girl> & i know lots of girls that love
math too

hey hey..relax...i did not say that you hate maths and
computers... besides, you are here...
about other girls...hm...yeah right...

i also love mathematics ok?

>>cout<<"SHUT UP! ";


>>well lets see... 0.0000000000000000000001% of the
male population likes these stuff

not really, more than that. also it is prooved that men
are smarter than women so it makes sense that men
likes maths and stuff better than women
(once more, i am not saying anything about you ok?
i am talking general here, not about YOU OK?)

08-15-2001, 11:54 AM
>also it is prooved that men
are smarter than women<

damn straight! :D

Can we stop the 3rd grade insults here?

Soon we'll be down to:
"Don't forget the recent scientific breakthrough that uncovered the fact that girls are yucky and have cooties!"

>Wow...rick, you daughter is 21 and married? <

Yep. Too young, I'd say. But you know these kids
today. They just don't listen (waves cane). She has my blessing, though. When she sees something she wants,
she goes after it (him). When he (his name's Anton)
finally gets over here, I think they'll be just fine.

>wow, if your daughter is 21, then that makes you... lets see... carry the one... <

Yeah, and don't forget to carry it two places, not one,
sonny. At 57, I guess that makes me a senior
member:) .

>i think i should get all my friends that are girls here so i won't be the only "Angry_killer" around here j/k :P

hey now, that _would_ freshen up the place so far as perspective goes... do it! :) [non-indicative of gender, therefore you cannot assume i'm just being a typical female-starved male... nor can you assume that that had female-intelligence and that it was a valid comment... okie, i'll stop now... :)]

08-17-2001, 12:43 AM
no kidding..

what's up with the wieny roast?

08-17-2001, 04:46 AM
>i think i should get all my friends that are girls here so i won't be the only "Angry_killer" around here j/k :P

ohh...ok...let's see...we are going to have....
two more members on the board...(hahahahhhaa)

08-17-2001, 11:51 AM

[read signature]...

08-18-2001, 06:28 AM
well...if you believe that...
i'll be waiting :))
if they know how to use a computer!

08-18-2001, 10:54 AM
peace!!! harmony!!! keep it!!!

[the thimble has spoken...]

okay, this is doubleanti now... what's with this collegegirl-ehsiq flam flickering? it's neato... (std_disclamer: can do what you want or lack there of for that matter) but i objectively think that more females on this board would freshen the perspective!

argh!!! [and argc and argv too!!!] [standard disclamer about posts' worth, nonopinion, and of course gender...] (!)

08-18-2001, 11:24 AM
ok ok..you are right....
i am not going to say nothing more that is irritating for
CollegeGirl or other women...
at least not in this thread again!

C G i am sorry! happy now? :)
