I'm sorry you are feeling excluded but when statistically men, primarily
white men, will make 25-30% more than I do, for the same job, over the
course of my career, will be given precedence not only in my
professional life but personal one on anything that is deemed
stereotypically male, who will more than likely when attending
technology conferences will NOT be sexually harassed, called a whore,
slut, and other charming names for espousing ones opinion and expertise,
well -- I hope you can see why comments like yours are a little
frustrating. 

I would highly recommend anyone interested in advancing the
conversation forward and putting together living, working solutions on
gender in tech disparity to sign up for the pre-conference I proposed
for #c4l14
http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/2014_preconference_proposals#Technology.2C_Librarianship.2C_and_Gender:_Moving_the_conversation_forward

Topics to include: Fairness, bias, impostor syndrome, code of conducts,
sexual harassment, training opportunities, support systems, mentoring,
ally support, and more

Myself, and others, have started writing extensively about the
imbalance of women in tech, primarily within the library field and how
that imbalance is causing a rift not only in our professional lives, but
our personal ones as well. You can read all the varying perspectives
from males and females, which I've started to collect here
https://lisa.rabey.net/projects/libtechwomen-libtechgender/

So if you think there is not a problem with gender disparity in tech, I
again invite you to read the articles, and join the pre-conference, and
listen to the stories. This is what we call a teachable moment - and if
after all that you're still not convinced there is an "issue"  or a need
to support women in tech, even with scholarships - well, may the gods
have mercy on your soul and hope that your female loved ones never
experience what many have experienced just to do their jobs.

-Lisa
