Coding Battle Of The Sexes: Who Is Better?

Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

That's much better at coding: Men or females? Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, as well as Kim Horcher the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us exactly what you believe in the comment section listed below.

" The most recent step in the recurring conversation regarding the gender space in tech began Tuesday when Google announced that it had actually discharged designer James Damore for "bolstering gender stereotypes" in an interior memorandum concerning the firm's business society. In reviewing the lack of sex diversity in technology, Damore had blogged about intended organic differences between men and women, and exactly how those distinctions "may describe why we don't see equal depiction of females in tech as well as management."

However, in fact, a number of the very first computer system programmers and also programmers were ladies, clarifies Nathan Ensmenger, a teacher and professional on the background of computing at Indiana University and also author of The Computer Boys Take control of: Computer systems, Programmers, and the Politics of Technical Proficiency.

For example, in a recent paper, he cites the first created guidebook on computer system programming, released in 1947. The guide described exactly how "planners" would certainly think about the problems they desired the computer to resolve, while "programmers" would equate those concepts "right into a kind that the computer might recognize." The job of coding was "low-status, greatly invisible, and also for that reason generally performed by women."

    If I had a dollar for every gender there was I would only have one dollar, because females are property according to Islam.

    Sadly Trump supporters lower the average IQ of men. Not all of us are stupid.

      Kevin Montrond i agree…. Every time I see a trump supporter talking some idotic liberal looses their mind and drops about 15 IQ points.

    It’s odd that we don’t see this fight over construction jobs and similar. Just nice cushy jobs.

    • Posted by Juan Garcia, at Reply

      if you think programming is a cush job, you are a fool

    • Posted by TCN8202, at Reply

      That ‘s because what you think of as “construction jobs” are actually a bunch of tasks waiting to be mechanized.
      The reason why they’re not yet mechanized is because the act like a drainage system of excess dumb testosterone.

    I´m teaching to code to kids at primary school, girls work great as boys. I just get them motivated to make something awesome, and they all respond with enthusiasm and imagination.

    The divide is about thos who like to code and those who are not that interested, gender is not important.

      Actually, I suspect that natural interest in the subject is the very mechanism (or one of several) that biology uses to make one gender (on average) better at something than the other.

      kind of pointless if employers are just going to outsource those jobs to India or give the ones in the country to foreign Indian h1b labor.

      … or if neanderthal snowflakes like yourself would quit churning out bugs and sexist remarks we would have a lot better tech and a much more enjoyable workplace. As a man working in tech I see a lot of dilettante work and dumb nonchalance from my male colleagues – nothing comparable from the few female colleagues. I you want to talk about people doing a poor job, let’s talk about tech companies recruiters…

      I watched the a 30 minute interview with the engineer yesterday, read his report, read an opposing agenda report, then ofcourse listened to what TYT had to say. I can certainly say that TYT sidestepped so far I thought they were going to fall into the Pacific Ocean. Is it possible that the audience is policing hypocrisy?

      billy mott oh that part was erased before the guy published the memo. But some of us can read thoughts and we know he was thinking it.

      David Espinoza He wasn’t trying to explain anything. What he was trying to do is sideline actual explanations, and rationalize his own sexist identitarianism.

    Ana has a rather large chip on her shoulder methinks. How many other women on news channels or networks get to be one of the main presenters in their early twenties?

      Ana complains about everything related to TYT. She doesn’t get paid enough, Cenk is sexist, she hates being famous. I used to like her, but she’s a real head ache these days.

    So many non sequiturs in the comments section. The question is: Are women inherently less capable than men at coding? The study cited in the video proves that they’re actually somewhat more capable than men. End of discussion.

    • Posted by Adam Sanders, at Reply

      I’m not disputing the results, but as Cenk himself said, one study NEVER proves anything.

    • Posted by &one, at Reply

      Those are two different arguments. Please listen, LISTEN. It’s enfuriating to see you “debunk” something that wasn’t presented as an argument. The dude at Google concedes that there IS discrimination and we should look at ways to reduce it. The argument you are debunking is that EVERY woman is worse at coding than EVERY man. Nobody in the world thinks that ALL women are slower than ALL men, but when you look at the average times in running competitions, it’s not sexist to accept or merely observe that the men’s average running speed is faster! Curves are overlapping on every single dimension. There is not one personality trait in which this is not the case. The fact that men are on average higher or lower in some traits can help explain some differences in outcome in very large populations in specific fields. All that experiment did was compare the average time of the top 100 female runners to the average time of the top 2000 male runners (because of the number of male coders vs female coders in GitHub), which is not the pertinent comparison.

    • Posted by Thabiso Mhlaba, at Reply

      +MrRobotoToo I don’t think you can really jump to that conclusion. We’ve seen things like how self-selecting minorities, in certain fields create uneven distribution when it comes to skill. So women are discriminated against (or at the very least feel they are discriminated against) so the baseline level of motivation to continue in the field would be much higher than it would be for men, so they self select more highly motivated and skillful individuals. So a greater proportion of them will be better simply because they feel much more pressure to be perfect.

      If there was an even distribution of gender, I think you’d find the skill levels even out quite a bit.

    • Posted by Dragon1717, at Reply

      No. The “study” proves nothing.

    The triggering of men is pretty hilarious right now. TYT cites a study and men are outraged that women are beating men in one study. Men being a bunch of snowflakes is all I see.

    • Posted by MoppyPuppy, at Reply

      The issue is actually that this entire video is rebutting an argument no one made.
      Ana just yesterday condemned the MSM for spinning the memo into hyper simplistic terms, and yet here we are refuting the argument of _”women can’t code”_ which is *nowhere* in that memo.

    • Posted by Jim Bohn, at Reply

      And entirely false. A woman taught me how to code.

    • Posted by MoppyPuppy, at Reply

      Jim… c’mon man.

      lol, Women at Google were the ones so triggered by the memo that they had to take the day off to collect their emotions.
