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 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.
