Women simply aren't as good as men at programming. It's just biological. Women just aren't interested in technology. Women are too emotional. Men are more logical, so they code better. Women aren't as technically minded. Women have smaller brains than men. Women don't get very far in their careers because they need to leave to have babies. You wouldn't like the culture. Your nails would hit the wrong keys too much.
No but really, it's biological, it's just science. Women are better suited to caring jobs, like a nurse, or a childcarer.
These are real statements, said by real people - many of whom are working in tech - to excuse the lack of gender diversity in the industry. And it's combating statements like these that drives Holly Tattersall, CEO of mentorship program Women in Digital.

But I have gone caseless for years, only cracking my screen once a few years back because I drunkenly dropped it face down on concrete.
