https://blog.rust-lang.org/2018/11/27/Rust-survey-2018.html apparently there are more trans folks using #rust than there are women? That is somewhat surprising.
@roguelazer cis women.
But I can't find a neutral demographics question in this posting. Only one which asks if you "self-identify as being part of a group underrepresented in technology".
@lilo actually, I think it was just "identify as a woman" or something and you could check more than one, so presumably the "cis woman" column is even smaller than the ~3% in the graph
@roguelazer Could be and I suspect the stats are right and share of women programming rust is really very small.
However, my criticism was about the indirect phrasing of the question. I suppose you get different answers if you ask directly and neutrally for the gender of the respondent or if you offer a selection of several minority groups and asks if the respondent feels themselves to be part of these groups.
