Tech is a Boys Club

And if you don’t think so ask around. I suspect a big reason for the inane and repulsive comments like these are that most men like Tech being a boys club, and not just the ones making said comments. It’s safe, you can make whatever jokes you want, group outings are to places like beer halls and bowling alleys and gun ranges. Internal politics are homogenous. It’s hard to admit that’s not the way it should be even though you like it that way. Indeed, that’s always the struggle with inclusion: those on the inside like it there. So as a man in Tech I/we have to be as conscious as possible about ways in which we exclude, even if it makes us/me uncomfortable.
