To the men arguing that more women entering the tech industry is displacing someone (and the women arguing against this idea) – yes, that is true, women entering the tech industry probably does cause a displacement effect*. That someone displaced is usually male. That’s just simple economics and inarguable. More labor + roughly same number of positions == harder to get job, pay is lower.
But so what?
And I thought all you male libertarian laissez faire free market fetishists were all about that competition?
Well guess what, motherfuckers, that’s competition right there.
Get used to it or shut up about your free market idolatry. Damn.
*It is much more complicated than this, but I don’t have time for a 5,000 word post nor do I care that much.
