I'm sick of tech dudes

Oct 6, 2019 73 Comments

Seems like money, tech and complaining about how they "can't talk to girls because of #metoo" are the only things they're capable of talking about. Blind brings out the worst of the worst but it's not much better irl. Really getting sick of the whole industry.

Just a rant. Obviously not all dudes.

    Lol @ all the people telling her not to date tech dudes. She didn’t even mention dating, but you just assume because she’s a girl that’s what she’s talking about. Stay classy Blind

      OP, could have posted here to get responses from women in tech.
      OP never disclosed gender.

    2 days ago I posted something similar and I was bombarded with sexist messages, hate messages, and inappropriate sexual comments, so I had to take down the post. I tried to talk to a few people genuinely but it was a mistake. I am tired of the tech guys too, they are weird, super weird.

    They insulted me calling me (and every non tech person) low IQ and how women are good for nothing, how their TC entitles them to sex, how they can hop women, and how they are the best in the world.

    It's exhausting to talk to them, make them realize money doesn't make them a better person, that there is life outside jobs, and that people are not disposable. I don't think anyone understood though. It makes my heart cry to see what money can do to people :(

    • Terrible to hear that.

      Women in my family were sexually harassed by male high-income earners, people you’d think should otherwise be classy. This happened about 30 years ago.

      It sucks that so little has changed, but at least on Blind you know the reality of how people think. At work, people are two-faced and only use women to achieve some D&I goal or something.

      Agree @Uber. It's surprising how men think women are good for nothing, when what they should be doing is appreciating them for enduring and fighting through this sexist world (as can be seen on blind repeatedly). I really don't care if anyone supports me or not, but I hate to see how people hinder my journey time and again.

      It's sad to see how winning more people in bed has become synonymous of a stud person. It's also sad to see people weighing other people on their job/money etc while believing more money makes them a better and high IQ person. On the contrary, the best people I have known worked blue collar jobs, the strongest people I know carved their own path (and not just happen to be in some kind of a tech job during a tech boom), and the most kind/ethical people I know made their way through poverty/other difficult times. I just hope the current culture changes.

  • You’re not wrong, I’m a tech dude and am sick of tech dudes.

    Lack of humanity honestly. It’s like we never ventured far outside of our bubbles, don’t know how to connect with ordinary people, and just act like working at X or whatever entitles us to Y.

    Can’t wait for the bubble to burst! My TC might take a hit but well worth bringing back the Bay Area to what it was before.

    People will inevitably become the worst version of themselves unless there are external stimuli to push them in another direction.

      Yes, not viewing traditional gender roles as a problem but considering a woman not pay on a date as a problem is hypocrisy.

      Lol that guy at Netflix are the kind of people who think that their code is changing the world where the reality is the world wouldn't even notice if they were gone or their code was gone! Techies are so full of themselves, part of the blame goes to the general public as well who always put software engineers on a pedestal because of the huge salaries.

    As a tech guy, can confirm. We suck. Like I do my best to be aware of it and be better something about tech culture attracts and rewards the wrong traits.

    • Assholes who harass women (when it’s proven, and it was in this case) should be named and shamed, not given $80M severance bonuses.

      Sadly most tech companies have covered up sexual harassment. Matt H (guy who harassed Susan Fowler) works at Okta. Fucker should be banned from the industry.

    Yep. This app has really opened my eyes to how our “progressive” industry is filled with men who believe women can’t do anything and we all got our job through diversity initiatives not because I worked me a*s off to get here

      "all women, we all got our job through diversity" most people don't say that when they complain about push for diversity.
