Beez Baaz Posted over 1 year ago Geena Rocero: Why I must come out I don't have hard data and I'm speaking entirely from my personal experience. But I suspect if someone does a study about this, they will find similar results. Why: I don't have any particular preference in computer science fields or people that could lead to biased results. I simply follow a wide spectrum of resources, and notice that quite frequently I see transwomen. And I also have yet to see *one* transman. I have seen some in blogs and twitter but none giving talks or leading interesting and well known research for example. It might be that there are some which are just not media friendly, but same goes for transwomen. I'm just using a sample of media-friendly hard-computer-science people, where theoretically there could be the same amount of transwomen and transmen, and I perceive a significantly higher amount of transwomen. I would also be really interested, besides of that of ratio transwomen/ciswomen in computer science, and how this changes the more you get up in difficulty. You might also say that I don't have proof that these women are transwomen, or that I might miss transmen, because I perceive them as cismen, but I think that I have a very good eye for that. I (almost) never fail (I'm trans* myself and I usually can see it in others quite quickly). Of course a serious study would be great, I'm not aiming to present my perception as one. I hope there would be studies. As I said I find this very interesting, specially because it would give us many answers, or new questions, about how gender, society and other factors interleave to shape an individual. Not wanting to link it with any animosities. But it would be really interesting if researchers dig deeper into this.
