A lot of people in computer programming seem to be trans. Even from decades ago.

Thank God I left that world before this happened. Any idea why? Is it because programmers are trendy?

Here are a couple that transitioned before it was trendy:
I wonder if maybe programmers for whatever reason have an unhealthy obsession with being in control. This would be why they subscribe to ideologies that are controlling, such as liberalism. And why they feel a need to be able to control what gender they are. And why it is that when they appointed a programmer to be the department head at my last workplace, he turned out to be a micromanaging asshole.

Makes sense. I guess that also explains why they like Git, because Git gives them pointless control and lets them reject reality by changing their source history. Much like changing one's sex.
