I am all for equality of opportunity just not for equality of outcome, there is a big difference.

[doublepost=1566348408][/doublepost] What a silly post. There are plenty of arenas where targeted recruitment and enrollment are suitable, even necessary for a variety of reasons. After school programs are one example.
Only men can have their own clubs and groups! if anyone else does,it's clearly SJW! What a bunch of crybabies in this thread.
A non-profit organization that is setup to help women/girls learn to code does NOT TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM MEN.
Apparently, boys egos are so fragile this day that anyone doing anything good for any other group of people automatically means they're being attacked in some way. Pathetic.
