    An apologist for what? Supply and demand? Yes I am a supply and demand apologist.

    Toxic thought processes? So when any business decides to put less resources toward a product because it is low volume, they are being toxic?

    Discrimination against women in tech is a real problem. The marketing of branded T Shirts is not one of the causes of that problem, and is therefore ridiculous to spend time discussing.

      Considering that this is a form of discrimination that is quick and easy to rectify, and directly makes women feel unwelcome within this community, how about we tackle this one first tho

        Do you think I feel unwelcome because DN doesn't sell a t-shirt that is supposedly for women (e.g. fitted and made to be more "sexy")? Do you see a lot of women wearing t-shirts? I don't. It's not a common garment for women in general.

          Yes it is. What a strange (and false) observation.
