I was a little alarmed by this recent post by Zeldman. He found that women are underrepresented in Web Design Industry, but he (and others) are making way too big of a deal out of this. Why is it so hard to accept that maybe men are more drawn to certain work fields than women are? Why must everything be exactly equal among men and women?

I intensely dislike this idea of “forced diversity”. It’s the same line of thinking that has given us affirmative action. Ideas like this are exactly the reasons that Liberals are not more powerful. More common sense, please.
