Alert: software developers are nerds

A commenter linked to this article about a software developer who was fired “after making sexual jokes in the audience during a keynote session at PyCon, a conference for Python developers.”

Software developers are nerds who don’t know how to behave around women. Because of this, they often will make inappropriate talk like the kind cited in the article. They don’t do this because they are evil and mean-spirited, they do it because they are nerds who don’t know how to behave around women.

And the reason they don’t know how to behave around women is because girls avoided them like the bubonic plague when they were in high school and middle school, and maybe even in college, so they never got to have any experience with hanging out with the opposite sex.

So the way I see it, the women who got the guy fired was blaming him for a condition that she and other members of her sex were responsible for in the first place.

  1. You are missing the double standard. If the guys were attractive, this cunt would have laughed and made eyes at them.

    • Good looking men of course wouldn’t be called nerds and would be getting laid like Paul Janka, who sleeps with a lot of subpar women. This goes to show that the average to below average guy is in deep shit when it comes to the mating ritual.

    • Breaking news from VentureBeat:

      The woman who outed the developer has been fired herself.

      Poetic justice, although I don’t think either should have lost their jobs.

  2. “like the bubonic plague when they were in high school and middle school, and maybe even in ”

    Not when they needed their homework done…

    Nerds are among the last self-made Americans – real men. They obtain employment solely through their wits, face instant accountability for the results of their work and continually must relearn their craft. No connections/bros/Daddy/AA to give them a comfy ride.

  4. GLP’s been covering this in detail. While I haven’t devoured every word of coverage, it’s important to point out that the gentlemen in question were joking among themselves (whether sotto voce or not, I’m not sure) when a woman seated in front of them suffered a “Joan of Arc” (her self-comparison) epiphany and decided to turn around and photograph them and then expose them on twitter.

    So it misconstrues the scenario to simply say that nerds don’t know how to behave “around women” (true as that doubtless is) because in this case, a little Miz BusyBee took it upon herself to play Holy Inquisitor by twisting around and taking their photograph, etc. –For the children!, as it turns out, according to her, in my opinion rather psychotic, sense of entitled outrage.

    –Also note, tho I have not as yet clicked for the lady’s photo, I’m given to understand she looks like a DMV employee . . . .

  5. She just got fired. What kind of an idiot PR person would tweet on behalf of Sendgrid (the company for whom she worked), alienates a large portion of the customer base (i.e., the nerds writing the email code), then publicly announce tweets (probably without clearance with PR) that Sendgrid supports her! Good riddance! She was fired for incompetence.

  6. We’re witnessing a return to goddess worship.

    Men bow and serve like insects to their queens.

    Sex jokes are only for males approved for mating.

    Any male that violates his station his destroyed.

  7. HS is wrong on this one. The reason why this is an issue is Adria Richards doesn’t know how to behave around other people. Making immature sexual jokes is not some nerd-only trait. Men of all walks of life do it, and women who aren’t indoctrinated into being supreme bitches either ignore it (if they don’t like the guy) or react positively (if they do like the guy).

  8. The guy who got fired was married with three kids, even though he looks pretty young. Probably not a typical Revenge of the Nerds type nerd.

  9. The guy who was fired said that he has a wife and three kids. He may be a nerd, but he has enough skill to get married and father children.
    And people make ribald jokes in non-nerd professions. When female reporters were first allowed in locker rooms, they were subjected to much worse talk.
    And Adria Richards is guilty of her own off-colour comments.

  12. This is simply another case of women inserting themselves into a male environment, and then expecting special treatment. The jokes that combat soldiers tell one another could peel wallpaper and, now that feminists have forced the military into allowing women in combat, are these soldiers now going to have to behave like choirboys in front of “GI Jane”?

  13. From the article:

    “She gave me no warning, she smiled while she snapped the pic and sealed my fate”

    It’s amazing it’s gotten to a point how a woman can easily destroy a man, literally with the click of a button.

    • So nerds are of a higher social class, right?

      Well, higher than before. And their status has increased thanks mainly to famous IT nerds like Steve Jobs making tech cooler to the young and status envious.

      • No they’re not. IT nerds are regarded as low status regardless, and overall an unattractive bunch. A few handsome techies doesn’t change the fact that most of them are losers in the mating scene.

      • No they’re not. IT nerds are regarded as low status regardless, and overall an unattractive bunch.

        IT nerds are higher status than they were before because the tech industry has made being a nerd relatively cooler than ever before. But, granted, that’s not a high hurdle to jump because it used to be close to rock bottom. Not as high in SMV as Tom Brady, but still a nice improvement.

  17. Nerds are always acting inappropriately towards women. Like the recent case where a girl passed out drunk at a party at the Steubenville High School computer club. She was molested and they posted pictures of it on tweeter.

  19. All these nerdy conferences are now bending over backwards to show they’re not nerdy when, in fact, their servile response shows they are. This incident is just one of several where women have enjoyed exerting authority over dumb men at these conferences.

    At non-nerd conferences, the defendants would be treated with due process.

      • This is why we need to convert white nerds and libertarians (yes, there’s substantial overlap) to pro-white HBD. Nerds and Libertarians are more likely to ignore an appeal to emotion (you’re comments hurt my feelings) and focus on cause and effect and fact. This is why a plurality of GNXP readers and HBD readers were libertarian, though that proportion may have dropped over the past years as traffic to HBD websites has increased and brought in people outside the old HBD yuppie-libertarian demo.

  20. “they are nerds who don’t know how to behave around women.”

    I suspect most of the audience consisted of white males. They were unlucky to be seated right behind the only woman in the crowd, and a resentful black feminist to boot.

    I think that the company was wrong to fire him. So what if he was making sex jokes? Americans are becoming idiots through this PC thing. As for the woman, good riddance.

  22. By the looks of these two nerds I would say they are pussified betas. Most likely they agree with 95% of the feminist agenda. The nerd who was fired even agreed with his tormentor over the inappropriateness of his joke. Ha. The feminist revolution begins to eat its own.

  24. I remember my friend telling me that when he first arrived as a grad student at [an ivy university] he had to work as a TA like all the other foreigner grad students. He was pulled aside by another Russian and given some advice: “in this country, do not be alone in the same room with a female student, and answer all her questions in the shortest, most direct way possible. Keep contact with them to a minimum, and do not socialize with them, ever, no matter how nice they may seem”.

    I have not received such wisdom upon arrival to these shores, and had to learn the hard way. But with experience, I now aim to never socialize with women at work, never be in the same room alone with a woman, and keep all contact brief and to the point.

    • How sad is it that things have gotten this bad, thanks to the malign influence of feminism? That men should even have to deal with this sort of nonsense speaks volumes as to the decline of the west. The more I hear of feminism poisoning our society, the more I appreciate Asian cultures such as Japan, in which men may still behave as men and where women have not morphed into feminist harpies.
