HN users are noticing :marseynoooticer: something:

« I’m on the board overseeing Linux graphics. Half of us are trans »

From a purely statistical POV, this is absurdly bizarre.

Not really.

Statistically there will be weird coincidences completely naturally. It's also quite arbitrary which we see as meaningful. If say, Linux networking has unusually many people called "John" that probably will be unnoticed because nobody pays that much attention to common, unremarkable names. If they all randomly turn out to have green eyes, then that's more visible. It's completely subjective which of those is more remarkable.

There are also likely social effects -- people stick together, and some side interests align with some fields. Eg, I think it's reasonable to guess there's going to be more furries than average in VR development. Part because VR allow you to look like whatever you want a lot of the time, part because people will invite their friends in.

It is not just a random coincidence. It's a phenomenon more broadly across programming, especially very low-level/hardware stuff.

There does seem to be a correlation between autism spectrum and gender confusion, with the former often present in individuals who are into highly technical pursuits.

The logic seems to be not conforming to masculine stereotypes ==> must be a woman.

It's not "gender confusion". They know very well who they are. You are confused about the topic.

Meanwhile on /g/:

HRT destroys programmer communities the same way as crack was destroying black communities in the 1980s

>Tfw you're a turboautist and you live in the time period of history when your sperg brothers were recruited en-masse into the AGP cargo cult due to terminal internet/anime/hentai/porn consumption, many of whom irreversibly destroyed their lives in the process before it barely began

Explain your incorrect usage of cargo cult and how it relates to the topic at hand

Cargo cult is a good term for it. Much like how cargo cults build crude representations of airplanes and runways without any real knowledge of how and why they are built, AGP autists dress up and act like crude representations of women they've observed through indirect sources like anime and porn without ever being socialized as women.

I am an ESL macaco, so my intentions were that "cargo cult" sounds similar to "train cult" :marseyclueless:, had no idea that such an apt comparison to cargo cults would be made by @PUNISHEDvelvetjr!

So your use of "Cargo cult" was basically a Cargo cult behavior.

He also realized it was r-slurred and snapped out of it because he didn't have a circle of groomcord "friends" to drag him in deeper.

And he ended up one of the most notoriously deranged people in modern history instead of a run-of-the-mill AGP enjoyer :marseyhmmhips:

Well, how you think the HRT gets into the community? We don’t own any pharmaceutical companies . We don’t own no doctors. We are not the people who are injectin that shit in here. I know every time you turn on the TV that’s what you see, nerds, legalizing HRT, pushing HRT, yea, I know. But that wasn’t a problem as long as it was here, wasn’t a problem until it was in Iowa and it showed up on Wall Street where there are hardly any g*mers. Now if you want to talk about HRT why is that there is a gender reassignment clinic on almost every corner in this community? … Tell you why, for the same reason that there’s goy slop on almost every corner in the g*mer community. Why? They want us to kill ourselves.
