I'm afraid to ask, but I'm oh-so-curious!

That being said, I'm wary of people taking it too far. For example, some feminists think that companies should have to fill a gender quota, much like affirmative action. Instead of forcing something unnatural like that, let's encourage women to join these male dominated fields. Or not. We could also, you know, just let them do what they want. Oh, and regarding my little conjecture - keep in mind it was just that. Not based on anything but anecdotal evidence.

@HLGEM - I understand and do believe that women are treated terribly in some places. I'm horrified at those two anecdotes you mentioned. I don't see that kind of treatment very much around myself, but maybe that's because I'm at a university.

@Dori, it sounds like the question was social. I don't think your gender has anything to do with your ability to write code, but I think it does affect social situations. You said so yourself, your coworkers, being all male, decided to make you collect money from everyone and buy and wrap the gift. Another thing I can point out, and this is just for fun, is that often in male social groups, they get the weakest person to do the crap nobody wants to do. They might have been treating you just like they would treat a male by testing you to see if you would just give in to the pressure.

Seems like that question wouldn't be so bad it it weren't followed by the group birthday thing.
