Outrage of the Week. Female – Techno-Geeks

It seems that feminism has hacked its way into cyberspace. Reuters reports that a 17-year old female has written a new virus intended to plague Microsoft. Her reason? She wants to make a statement against the sexism that pervades the “male-dominated anti-virus industry.”

One would imagine that high-school seniors have other concerns on their minds; however, this one complains that women aren’t perceived as being able to write viruses as well as men. The girl wanted “to make a social point,” though it is not immediately clear exactly what that point might be.

Perhaps that the world of techno-geeks now has its very own Ma Barker?
