okay so i’m a compsci major and one of my classes atm is a computer ethics class. it’s an interesting class and i’m glad it’s required in my degree but my prof,,,says some things that feel questionable.
today during class he said they (the university) wanted him to talk about diversity issues in computer science, but he doesn’t want to do so bc he said his views on the matter don’t align w what the university wants him to discuss.
he didn’t go too in depth bc class was ending but he said smth abt how he doesn’t feel that computer science is a “misogynistic patriarchy” (im not sure if he was quoting the university or if they’re his own words but i assume they’re his own words).
i don’t know what exactly the university wants him to say but it feels like to me that he thinks women in computer science don’t experience sexism? or smth like that idk he’s been vague. but i feel like him being a white guy, he doesn’t get to dictate how actual women (esp woc) in the field feel abt the environment. he’s well liked by the rest of the class so i just feel like i’m in the minority feeling like this😶
