Barbie Speaks

21 Sep 2006 /

I’m listening to an online interview with Kent Beck, Cynthia Andres and Tom DeMarco. My son hears Andres’ voice and says, “You’ve got a woman teaching you about technology?!”

“What a sexist you are,” I say.

“I’m just repeating what you always say: ‘Oh, women don’t know anything about computers.'”

“When did I ever say that?”

“You say it all the time. ‘Men are a lot smarter than women.'”

I deny this vehemently, and not just because my wife is sitting across the room.

Meanwhile, Andres is saying something: Blah blah blah Kent blah blah blah . . .

Ken!?” the boy says. “Who’s advising you? Barbie?”
