Average American woman - 166 lbs., up 18.5%

Average American man - 195.5 lbs., up 17.6%

The title seems bit linkbait-y. Why focus on women, when it's really all Americans?

-----


166 is a nicer number?

200lb doesn't have a 1960's equivalent to compare it to in a headline?

-----


Because for the "average person" the temporal equivalence across the genders makes an easier comparison than using percentages?

Look at how proud the employees look in the second photo.

Some would generalize, and say that people who look like them, or who have criminal history, don't really want to work. But they do want to work, are employed, and their sense of dignity is palpable.

This is a really uplifting story. Nice to read some good news for a change.

That's really the core issue: too many people believe that they can evaluate a person's technical knowledge based on physical appearance, which ends up including gender, race/ethnicity, sometimes even religion (if the person is wearing religious attire).

It's just easier to get to know people instead of assuming.

Also: environments that are unpleasant/hostile/uncomfortable for "people outside the norm" make it difficult for such people to distinguish between sexism/racism/discrimination and legitimate feedback.

For example, playing with one's hair during a presentation is often a sign of nervousness, but it is also a signal that conveys that nervousness to the audience. Is it distracting to some degree? Maybe, but more importantly, it detracts from her authority. Still, I can see why she responded as she did--if you are constantly undermined, under fire or criticized for no good reason, it becomes difficult to filter out which criticism/feedback is actually useful.

Edited to add: Loved the artwork in that article.

> It's just easier to get to know people instead of assuming.

I hate to be the one to say it, but no, it's not easier. It's much more accurate, but it's not easier.

Getting to know someone involves overcoming biases, stereotypes, first impressions, and a lot of time. The payout from expending this effort is a much richer experience, but it comes at the cost of having fewer experiences.

I personally don't have the time or energy evaluate every person I meet with such scrutiny, and so I take shortcuts and evaluate them based on my experience with people superficially similar to them.

I'm not ashamed of that, it's part of being a human with a finite amount of time to devote to interpersonal relationships.

-----


Not really my point. I'm hardly suggesting that it's necessary to establish in-depth relationships with every person you meet. For me it's easier not to think about who a person might be and instead just ask them who they are.

As a developer who spends 90% of my time on WordPress, I'm really glad to read about this.

WordPress is a great way to organize content on the web and has a robust developer community. It's always improving. Love it!

I know a few people who have to deal with these sorts of issues. They identify as black, but by appearance people assume they are White, or Greek, or Hispanic, or Asian, or something besides black.

Occasionally, people ask them why they have so many black friends or tell racist jokes in front of them. Other times, people who believe that they share a common heritage will speak to them in languages and become angry when they don't understand.

Human beings are all to apt to judge a person's ethnicity by their appearance, but in many instances one's appearance is not an accurate gauge of their ethnic heritage.
