WARNING: Purposefully provocative and devil's advocate mode.
In my experience in most first world countries, women in STEM career are actually sought after and not cast out.
Yeah but I didn't say that did I? We can ignore most of non "first world" countries since on average livestock has more rights than women.
Studies show that women are stronger in math & hard science then men at the pre-university level. Genetic? Probably not...it's more likely that girls are pushed to study more in early years then boys. Coupled with the fact that girls tend to mature faster. University admission of women into these fields is drastically lower then men. I went to a math/science only university (the 80s) and it was approximately 4:1 ratio. Again cultural and I'd guess that current numbers are going to be similar. You add into the mix that a fair number of marriages result from couples that meet at university or at work and on average it'll be the male that will take the lead role on job placement and the women will have to take what she can find, regardless of whom is the stronger candidate. Not saying that's a bad call...it's on average the winning choice. So women in math/science should be thrilled because they're not generally and effectively black-listed? Or because the wage and promotion gaps is less than other fields? Women aren't bombarded with various forms of sexual harassment, including the often overlooked passive kind of "puppy jumping and peeing on them"? I think very few men understand how hellish the puppies must be.
Also your Phil Fish example shows how it can be just the same with men.
Yeah I said the real problem isn't women, they're just a single case.
Sarkeesian is not hated because she is female, She is hated because she is an extremist on the internet producing content and shouting loud about this topic.
I don't watch videos so I wouldn't know.
If she was male, it would be just the same. As apparent by Phil Fish: If you talk shit publicly, people will call you out. If you express strong (political) opinions, loudly on the internet; even worse.
I'm of the humble opinion that "even worse" isn't a valid form of discourse.
If someone produces a lot of like right winged content, maybe well produced, articulate, gets a lot of attention, but still radical and extremist, that person would get death threats as well.
Reason is people can not believe, let alone accept that someone so hateful is getting all this attention and might poison some uneducated ignorants. And this manipulation makes them angry.
Same reasoning as before...not valid form of discourse.
