It is common when females become involved with computers that they accuse the males of some type of bullying. First off, it sets them up as the victim; and we all know the value in claiming the victimhood high ground.
But what really happens? What are the paths there? Let us consider some possibilities.
Let us start with the fellas. Normally the nerdy types welcome female company. Often they don’t get so much; they have hormones just like everybody else. From this perspective, they would have very little reason to do anything that might be considered to be bullying.
Probably sometimes a female jumps in and demands to be treated as an equal. Many of the fellas involved are really into the tech; spending countless hours becoming proficient. Being fellas, they naturally respect other group members based on competency. That is, real competency, not purported. Females, not as interested or driven as the guys, often fail in this regard. It is a male driven world, a competency driven world: welcome to it. In the end, many females do not measure up, and are treated similar to fellas who don’t measure up. Guys, don’t complain about this treatment, but girls do. So we have bullying.
Undoubtedly other times, females jump in and don’t even pretend to be competent. They just want to ride the affirmative action escalator / impose SJW values / just be a general nuisance. Very often they can get away with it. One wonders who is bullying who. Very often, these fellas just want to be left alone to do their thing, but they aren’t.
So, back to the beginning: these fellas would in general welcome female company. Typically, they have lots of other things to do other than bullying women. Yet is supposedly happens. This is all very strange.
