People wonder why there are so few women in computing and tech fields. I suppose the fact that one of the major Apple blogs (Cult of Mac) thinks it’s OK to write posts titled “Pick Up Chicks At Macworld Wearing Our Awesome MILF Shirt,” with accompanying photo of said shirt (see below) just might have something to do with it. I could write a long post explaining exactly why this is bad, but I don’t think I need to. “Ick” is really all I have to say about it. That, and you should head on over there and leave a comment telling them where they went wrong. Oh, and if you have recommendations for Apple blogs that don’t treat their female readers with contempt, please leave them in the comments as I’ll be looking for something to replace this now that I’ve deleted them from my Google Reader.
