Girlfriend/wife demographics of straight male software engineers

Dec 6, 2019 23 Comments

A friend and I were debating if certain demographic trends we've noticed amongst straight male software engineers are supported by data or just confirmation bias. But couldn't find any data on this.

If you are a straight male software engineer in a relationship with a female, can you describe yours and your partner's demographics?

      Why misleading, it's about Software engineers. It's fine for other populations to have different distributions.

      What would be shocking is if the responses didn't match the world norm of people marrying within similar race/social classes.

      Hypothesis is that east asian girls are disproportionately represented amongst significant others of software engineers.

      Seems the data only supports this for white men

      So EA women are 50-50 on EA vs. white men (and white men have it for EA women the most after W). Confirms the stereotype, makes sense 😂

      "Other race", that's what I picked for mixed. OTOH, white is already mixed so that's how my wife self-identifies. So who knows, probably nobody cares about this stupid shit in another generation.

    These choices are not all mutually exclusive, I could be in two categories, white/asian and white/not white. Out of protest, not going to vote.
