"If you were a computer-loving male child who took a lot of shit from your peers, I suspect you heard something similar from the adults in your life. Maybe it was “Sure, things are bad now, but when you’re a little bit older, women will LOVE guys like you!” Or maybe it was “That kid who makes fun of you now will be working at a gas station when you run a big fancy computer company and marry a supermodel!” If you were once young, nerdy and male, it is not unlikely that your future sense of self-worth was funded with a non-consensual IOU from the world’s women. It’s taken me a long time, but at this point I genuinely believe that much of this “GEEKS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH” rhetoric is little more than patriarchy’s bespectacled wingman. It excuses the pain that systems of power exert on children by promising little boys future dominion over little girls. It is deeply and massively fucked."
oh my god this…
Are computer-loving female children fed these same lines? Are they told “SOME DAY YOU WILL HAVE ALL THE MONEY AND POWERS AND MEN WILL FLOCK TO YOU LIKE AUTONOMY-DEPRIVED MAN-ZOMBIES?” If you insist that the presence of enough computers magically transforms the world into a meritocracy, you might want to think about that one for a second.

There’s nothing wrong with apologizing. In fact, it’s sort of what you’re supposed to do when you’re in the wrong. However, women are 37% more likely than men to identify their own behavior as worthy of an apology, which leads to women apologizing more frequently than men do … which in turn, unfortunately, fuels the double standard that women who aren’t “apologetic enough” are bossy (or worse).
This video hopes that we might recognize this behavior in ourselves and work together to create a world in which over-apologizing isn’t expected from either gender.
