In J-dawg's defence I dont think he was implying that girls arent interested in computer programming (if anyone would know on this board it's him, doing it for a living I'm sure he has encountered female programmers) but more that the girly thread isnt the place for it since it was created to discuss sterotypical girly things like shoes and clothes.
Yeah, didn't mean to offend any ladies. Although they're definitely in the minority, (I'd say about 10% based on my experiences so far), there are plenty of women who write software for a living. This is probably partly a reflection of the lack of women in science and engineering in general, not just this particular slice of it.
What I meant was more along the lines that it seemed odd to have a discussion about computer programming on a thread that isn't really meant for that.
Plus, it still feels strange to me that the Girly thread seems to have more male posters than female ones... Of course, I'm part of the problem here.
