    I was thinking and I don’t think I can recall 1 Khmer girl I’ve seen in tech.

    It’s kind of ironic that there aren’t more women in tech. The first programmer was a woman by the name of Ada Lovelace.

    I’ve been doing programming/web development, but I feel better if I don’t have to involve myself with coding. My schizo-affective order gets heightened when I have to think too heavily on programming.

    I want to stick with Sales/Marketing. I like where I’m at right now.

      I hear before, women dominated computer programming since it was seen as an office job. Then over time and due to opportunities, men took over. Still, there are a lot of women in tech..but rarely Khmer girls. I see old Chinese women who are software engineers, but I have not seen a young Khmer girl who are a bit interested in it. I do hear about girls in Cambodia who competed and I think even won in a computer science competition..but how common is that in Cambodia? I usually see pregnant Khmer girls in their late teens or early 20s.

      You’re so dumb sometimes I wonder how you ever get any kind a job that requires critical thinking and any kind of sophistication. The Khmer population is already minute to begin with, but you pit Khmer females against the most populous ethnic group in the world –the Chinese. That’s why you have no credibility except in your own little world.

      Having said that, I’ve around  a couple of khmer females that are making a min of 80K, with a couple 100+ in the tech field. Not big in the grand scheme of things, but they’re not all getting pregnant and dumb.

      So your argument is population. There are around 42 million African Americans, 52 million Latinos, and around 4 million Indians. Tell me why does it seem like there’s more Indians in tech and medicine? Huh? Huh? LOL! There are more Chinese Americans than Khmer Americans..but Khmer Americans created the largest Asian gangs in America. Asians make up the largest race in the world, yet why is it a white minority group make up the richest people? You can’t use the population argument when clearly there are people who are in smaller group who outdo the largest group.

      Just basing on the Khmer American population, there’s not many Khmer girls who interested in tech. Percentage wise, the interest is much less than women of other groups. If you compare White men and White women….the number of white women in tech is a fairly good number. Compare Indian men and Indian women and I hear it’s even half and half. Though not much Khmer guys in tech, there are still many who are interested and when you add all Khmer Americans in tech, it almost seems like it’s all guys..and rarely girls.

      On the contrary, lots of Khmer girls work in the medical field. Many Khmer girls pursue pharmacy and assistant careers.

      Not all Khmer girls are getting pregnant…but let’s be honest..most are getting pregnant and have multiple kids by mid 20s.

      You’re all over the place. We were talking about Khmer girls, and now it’s white guys, African Americans, and Latinos. I should just give up. lol. Anyway, as for the Indians, we’re not talking about American Indians, you doofus. Indians from the country of India, the 2nd most populous country in the world. Most of the Indians in tech came from there, either through H1B visas or immigrated here.

      Was there a compliment in there? I think so. I’ll leave this one alone, even though you contradict yourself left and right. Just food for thought…if the Khmer population is minute to begin with, and even smaller the Khmer female population, and as you mentioned that a lot are in the medical field, where does that leave the tech field? Your own logic should answer your own question, I hope.

      So you want to use the world population argument. Indonesian, Brazil, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Russia, and Mexico have larger population than Japan and S.Korea…why is it that Japanese and S.Koreans make more technology and products that expand the globe?

      There are more Chinese in the world than Khmers…then why did Khmer Americans make the largest Asian gangs in America?

      There are more Asians in the world than whites….why do whites dominate popular entertainment and advertising?

      There are more whites in America and more Asians in the world…why do African Americans dominate popular sports?

      The popular argument fails because some groups actually do better than other groups. The common man would be an Asian man…yet the Asian man does not dominate in most things.

      Now, the more important thing is to look at the percentage within a group. Percentage wise, nearly half of Indians in tech are women. Percentage wise, of Cambodians in tech, women I believe are in the single digits. Percentage wise, more Khmer girls work in medical field as medical assistants, factories, customer service, finance, stay at home moms, etc.

      Your argument is a flawed, irrelevant, and failed argument. Yes, there will always be Indians doing more of anything compared to Khmer people. There are more poor and more rich Indians than Khmers. That’s irrelevant! What the Indians did was look at the fact that they didn’t have much women in tech, which is a great opportunity for women to advance. You can’t have a prosperous society if a huge segment of the population is missing out on huge opportunities. Again, I repeat, when you have women or a segment of society not part of improvements/opportunity, it means they are missing out. So they saw it for what it is, and now Indians in tech are half women.

      Now, again, when not much Khmer women are in tech, it means they are MISSING out on opportunities. It has nothing to do with other populations being bigger. If you want to play the larger numbers game, you will always win, but you will always lose the percentage game and the individual game of people’s lives. When few Khmer women in tech, it doesn’t mean they are prospering so well in other fields…it means so many Khmer women are missing out on tech opportunities. You can’t be a smart guy if you think your people aren’t good in tech because other countries are larger..

      The S.Koreans are smart .. they didn’t play the population games like you. They knew that if they wanted their people to prosper. They needed to get into technology and now they are dominating in much of technology. Losers always use the larger population numbers…but winners try to increase the percentage of successful people within their own group. To make Khmer people more successful means to make Khmer people become successful in as many fields as possible, especially in fields that are booming and in demand.  You don’t become successful by saying “there are more indians in the world”.

      Nice Try McFly! LOL!

      No one is going to risk losing IQ points reading your gibberish. Dude, summarize the thing. Your argument is about Khmer girls in Tech. Stick to that and stick to comparing them to larger groups, as you like to do. Now you’re bringing up percentages (I glanced through it). Keep shifting, but back up what you say and I’ll entertain your gibberish. Where are you getting these numbers? Out of your behind? Keep continuing to BS your way through forums and life. 🙂

      You won’t lose IQ points…you need it to read it!

      In short, to make your uneducated Khmer Rouge mind understand, I’ll summarize.

      Population argument is flawed because if that’s true, India and China would be dominating with technology. Japan and S.Korea are much smaller, yet dominate. They dominate because they didn’t use the population argument, but instead use the percentage argument where they try to educated as much of their own people.

      Though India doesn’t dominate technologically, much of their people have been able to get into tech. Half of Indians who are in tech are WOMEN! On the other hand, of all the Cambodians in tech, very little are women. So basically, that means so many Khmer women are missing out of opportunities in technology.

      Smart people will realize that the percentage of Khmer women in tech is small compared to the Khmer tech population as a whole…there opportunities loss. Stupid people like you will just say “oh, India has a larger population”.

      See your argument went the # of Khmer women in tech now to nations vs nations. You still lose because India and China still field a higher # of people in tech just by their advantage in raw population alone. What I think you seem to be arguing is how advanced Japan and S.Korea’s techs are over China and India’s. Is that right? It’s hard to read your shifting argument. If you’re arguing Japan and S.Korea have more advanced tech, then you have to include their economic and government infrastructures, their allies, and access to new technologies from partners. Your arguments are so simple-minded it’s hard to fathom.

      Though India doesn’t dominate technologically, much of their people have been able to get into tech. Half of Indians who are in tech are WOMEN! On the other hand, of all the Cambodians in tech, very little are women. So basically, that means so many Khmer women are missing out of opportunities in technology.

      You’re comparing Cambodia’s 16 million population vs 1.3 billion for Indians. lol you’re a friggin’ joke.

      Smart people will realize that the percentage of Khmer women in tech is small compared to the Khmer tech population as a whole…there opportunities loss. Stupid people like you will just say “oh, India has a larger population”.

      Don’t just generalize. Tell us where you get these numbers. Otherwise, you’ll just keep talking out of your ass.

      LOLOL! Dude, now your argument are allies and access ?? The BS from you is all over the place.

      LOL! You can’t accept that some people are just better than other people. What’s your argument to why there are more blacks in the NBA than whites? There are more whites in America than blacks. Black people have better access to basketball courts and nutrition?? You use the population argument, but when it fails on you, you use the access to resources argument…lololol.

      Indians, they realized that not many Indian women were in tech, so they created a system that helped women get into tech. Now half of Indians in tech are women. They didn’t BS like you.

      I don’t think it’s well documented, if at all of Khmer women in tech. In the generation population, there are hardly, if any Khmer women in tech. In the heavily Khmer populated area, in the tech areas, there are hardly any Khmer women. Yet, if you go to the medical areas, you’ll see Khmer girls working at reception, medical assistant, pharmacy, there are a lot of Khmer girls. Go to retail store and lots of Khmers women working, but go to the big company next door with lots of tech jobs, and hardly any Khmer women. You might see the Khmer girl in payroll, customer support, and finance..but rarely tech.

      Obviously, Khmer women are missing out of technical opportunities…but you don’t want to admit that. You’re just butthurt and complain about population. Larger populations can lack resources when the population argument fail………but you don’t think Khmer women lack resources? LOLOLOL!

      Even in college…how many Khmer girls are majoring in computer science, engineering, or IT? They’re usually psychology, nursing, pharmacy, business, finance, marketing, etc.

      That’s what people who don’t have an argument say. At least you don’t BS like the other guy.
