Women considered better coders – but only if they hide their gender

When a group of computer science students decided to study the way that gender bias plays out in software development communities, they assumed that coders would be prejudiced against code written by women.

After all, women make up a very small percentage of software developers – 11.2% according to one 2013 survey – and the presence of sexism in all corners of the overwhelmingly male tech industry has been well documented.

So the student researchers were surprised when their hypothesis proved false – code written by women was in fact more likely to be approved by their peers than code written by men. But that wasn’t the end of the story: this only proved true as long as their peers didn’t realize the code had been written by a woman.

If you embed images on AO3, you might have noticed that wide images like covers extend past the screen width on smaller mobile devices. To view the whole image, a reader has to scroll to the right.

There’s an easy fix for this. Go to Skins –> My Work Skins –> Create Work Skin (or edit your existing skin). Enter the following:

#workskin img {
  max-width: 100%;
  height: auto;

This sets your image’s maximum possible width as the width of the element that contains it. So if the image is 800px wide, but its parent is just 600px wide, the image will adjust to fit. Setting the height to adjust automatically ensures the image ratio is maintained. 

Bulk-apply the work skin or just edit the fics with embedded art. If you need help with this, let me know!

ETA: I edited the explanation for why this works so it was more precise, but I wanted to say you can also use this technique on your tumblr theme, if you have elements that extend past their parents. You might have to play around to get it working. Feel free to message me if you get stuck.

static previews: 1 / 2 / 3 /// CODE




as per request, petit mignon is a dead simple, medium-sized roleplay container theme that is highly customizable in favor of roleplay blogs . unfortunately, for as much as i tried it can be very hard to make a flexible roleplay theme without someone having to touch the code in some way or another . that’s why i’ve properly written notes on the code in order to facilitate customization, particularly with render positioning.

if you have any questions or are in need of customization help, let me know !


render option
scattered links with rotating animation ( can appear as whatever you want )
optional captions
optional photo fade
optional grayscale photos
optional music player by @gyapo
customizable permalink symbols
customizable text size for both posts and blog title
three simple pop-up boxes ( by neonbike themes ) included in code for character bio, rules, and an extra one for verses if needed . 

CODE . STATIC PREVIEW .  (  do give a reblog if using, it really helps get this unknown blog exposure ! otherwise, please like the post <3. )
