I’m in high school, and love coding and computer programming. I want to major in CS when I go to college.

I also love to write, though, and I’ve been participating in NaNoWriMo for the past three years.

Once, I asked my friend to look over a chapter I had written and give me some feedback. He was very helpful, and I’m grateful for that, but a few minutes later, he says,

“I don’t think you should do Computer Science. Do something you’ll actually be good at, like writing.”

  1. This is absolutely uncalled for and inappropriate! There are plenty of women who are “good” at Computer Science and have been for decades. Computer Science is not a gender specific field, in fact, we would not be where we are today if it weren’t for women’s efforts in computer science. His ignorance of the Computer Science field and its advances proves that his suggestion has no credit.
