uh so I read the 'why women don't code' thing, idk why I did this to myself
one of the arguments that Reges makes (and that Damore made) is that there is a massive effort underway to silence them.

that's simply not true.
when I published Damore's memo, I was completely caught off guard by the reaction. because men in tech talked to me like that, all day, every day. they were never silenced or told to stop, so I had no reason to think this would be different
we're at a moment now that I never expected, in which people are being asked to reconsider their beliefs about the women they share offices with.

people who consider that "silencing" are telling you something very important about who they are.
oh and one more thing—please note that these "silenced" men are now enjoying massive media platforms and fame that money literally can't buy
