You know what I look for in an engineer?
No, not precise understanding of their field, or the assurance of structural stability.
No, no, no, no. I want DIVERSITY. I want a lady-engineer ABOVE ALL. Who CARES if she’s not great. Who CARES if she’s really bad at math. She has LADY BITS.
According to Daily Wire:
The Sydney Morning Herald reported that UTS will allow women to enter engineering and construction degrees with a lower score on the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) than male students. Women can score 10 points lower than men and still be admitted into the degree programs.
YAY! EQUALITY! …wait.
As the Herald reported, many universities in the country “allocate adjustment points based on disadvantage or illness,” but UTS appears to be the first one to make the adjustment based on gender. As one can guess, the move to lower the entry bar for women is being done in an effort to get more women into engineering.
Dr. Arti Agarwal, director of women in engineering and IT at UTS, told the Herald that admitting women into the programs – even with lower entrance scores – would make the world a better place.
SURE! THE WORLD IS A BETTER PLACE WHEN OUR LADY ENGINEERS GET PITY POINTS AND THEN BRIDGES FALL WITH PEDESTRIANS ON THEM BUT ALSO YAY FEMINISM.
“Lots of research has shown that teams are more productive when they are gender balanced. They come up with better ideas and better solutions,” she told the outlet. No such research was cited.
“We (women) ride in cars, we use public transport, we do all kinds of things,” she added. “If they are only being designed and engineered by one gender, then the requirements and needs of the other gender can get missed a bit.”
YOU GOT IT, MISS! Us ladies need lady cars built by ladies with sub-par test scores!
NOT ONLY WILL YOUR LADY CAR COME WITH A BUILT IN TAMPON BOX, IT WILL ACE ALL THE CRASH TESTS WITH A SOLID C-!
(That’s a B+ when adjusted for lady scores, so you’re perfectly safe!) .
This is so messed up. Women are capable of doing whatever they want – and they should – WITH THE SAME SCORES OMG.
What is that about soft bigotry?
THIS IS IT.
