Too Few Women in Computer Science?

“We have too few women in computer science.” That’s something you hear a lot.

It’s an opinion presented as a fact. I never hear anyone say, “In my opinion, we have too few women in computer science.” Just “we we have too few women in computer science.”

How do we know that? What is the right number? Maybe we have too many women in computer science. How do we know?

I’d love to see more women in computer science btw, I just object to people presuming to know what other people should be doing with their lives . . .

Thus spoke The Programmer.
