tfw you remember that literally all programmers used to be women until men realized that it was actual intellectual work and ran them out of the field so that 17 year old shitheads could make posts on reddit about how man brains are genetically wired for programming

@thatcosmonaut For folks asking when 'literally all women used to be programmers' ... when I first started in 1980, over 2/3 of data center developers (working w/COBOL, OLTP, mainframes and such) were women, as were most all production control ops and supervisors. At one point in the mid-80's my boss was a woman, as was her boss, as was her boss, as was her boss. Very different representation now.

@landybham @thatcosmonaut This was still pretty common in the 90's as well...
