I'm not on anybody's case because I don't get that it's a joke.

I'm on peoples' case because this particular *KIND* of joke keeps some of the best people away.  These are people I'm friends with, and whom I would like to see here.  A couple of them are even among the sharpest programmers I know, and if they got enthusiastic about cryptocurrencies they'd be an asset in terms of possible contributions.  

But, if they come on here and among the first things they see is a thread that starts off like this one?  Nope, bye.  You'll never hear from them even once, and they'll never be here again.  

So yes, I'm upset.  Every time I'm about to mention this place to someone who otherwise might like it, these clowns start another thread with one of these big steaming turds.  

Things like this make me go I must really be the only person that leaves the house and has social connections. First off what did we say that was so bad? I don't see one sexist comment. And if you said cause we were giving the blonde chick in the video a hard time, that is her job is stand there and look good. So by her accepting that job she knows what the deal is.
Every single joke about women in the context of "belonging here" is a sexist joke. Women hear this shit on a daily basis, which makes me think that YOU don't have a social life as you don't seem to have any deep connections with women so they could explain these things to you.

Make this place welcoming for women, not a place where they have to listen to stupid jokes about women. Even I as a man have left so many tech scenes because the stupidity is too overwhelming and everybody - even 20+ year olds - are acting like annoying little kids. But maybe all tech people are like that.

Just be a real man and stop making jokes about women. They need to be included right now.

Also I hung out with some of the brightest people in the world, and let me tell you, they act just like you and me. They say the same things, they tell the same jokes. So I would say get over being the white knight police and move on. Also their is other forums for people to go to talk on, even IRC << which I consider to be even worst than this forum in the caliber of content.
So you'd jump off a cliff if they did. Cool.

Speaking of stereotypes... what is it with women and "real men"?

Women can do whatever they want, but real women have no reason to leave the kitchen.

I have... literally no idea what this means.

I say "real men" because studies have shown that the best way to make people stop being sexist is to make them realize that they're acting like immature little boys.

Actually I have a gf... and we didn't make any jokes about belonging here... We welcome them.

Make this place welcoming for women, not a place where they have to listen to stupid jokes about women. Even I as a man have left so many tech scenes because the stupidity is too overwhelming and everybody - even 20+ year olds - are acting like annoying little kids.

It is welcoming for everyone LOL you can leave this one then...
Just be a real man and stop making jokes about women. They need to be included right now.

Real man? I just asked my gf if I was a real man she nodded Wink

Also I hung out with some of the brightest people in the world, and let me tell you, they act just like you and me. They say the same things, they tell the same jokes.

No but you act like they are so much more mightier than us and they aren't.

Oh, so "real man" is a euphemism for "having a large-enough dick." Real classy. Roll Eyes

I seriously doubt you've seen enough pre-pubescent boys' penises to judge, anyway. Roll Eyes

Really? I thought you were fighting that hard because you were a woman. That would at least be a good reason. So, you're just a pussy. Ok, got it.

I swear some of the guys here are on their periods... you clowns are getting more offended and making a bigger deal about this thread than a woman would. If a woman got offended they would just ignore it or exit the thread because guess what, the rest of this forum (literally every single thread besides this) is about bitcoins and women aren't even mentioned. And people are somehow tying this as the main reason more women aren't involved with the tech scene, fuckin LOL! I know everyone is stressed and upset that we still haven't recovered back to $1000+, which means some of you will have to buy your kids notepads instead of iPads for Christmas, but let's just calm down because I have a feeling we have a good year ahead of us.

No one's implying anything negative about women. Most of them just don't know jack shit about bitcoins, and that's okay... they will just marry all the men who are bitcoin millionaires.  Grin

It's reading threads like this and the crude, biased comments that are coming from several of the men here that makes me realize what an uphill battle we are going to have getting more women into the Bitcoin space. I've posted about women and Bitcoin on here before, we all want to see Bitcoin succeed and so long as we snicker and make disparaging remarks about women here, especially at public events this isn't going to help the cause one iota.

How would you feel if the situation was reversed and Bitcoin was a largely female dominated space? Imagine going to a conference or participating in a forum where 97% of the other guests are all women and you as a male are in the minority there.

Sure, some guys might think they can handle that but then mix in an undercurrent hostile feminism combined with anti-male sentiment and nobody taking you seriously because of your gender - you start to get an idea of how some women might feel in an environment like that to the point of giving up and leaving entirely.

Fortunately it's usually not that bad but all it does take is just a couple of bad actors to give the whole Bitcoin movement a negative reputation for women. Bitcoin is meant to be all inclusive - not just a boy's club.

At the end of the day, the few women that are genuinely into Bitcoin right now need to be treated as equal peers and given the same respect as any other member of the community. If anything they should be recognized as our best ambassadors for moving ahead and helping Bitcoin to get greater acceptance and credibility in the wider community - regardless of gender.

That just my 2 Satoshi's worth here... </rant>

Most of us wouldn't care or even consider the gender difference. I guess this is where men and women differ. They put so much weight on gender and ratio. Where most men would be like ohhh look bitcoiners that enjoy the space as much as I do.

No one is treating them less than equals. I respect talent and skills, not gender. So get over it.

They're just seeking attention. Remember in grade school when boys would pull on the girls ponytails? Same principle.

That's right. The truth is we really don't know the gender of most people here. Hell, we don't really even know if they are all different people or the same person with multiple accounts. The fact is most of the users would be happy to have more females here but believe that mostly men post on forums. 4chan is the worst of them and is where the meme "tits or gtfo" came from because of the belief that no one there is female.
