I was wondering why, after decades of working with male programmers and IT techs, I have practically zero personal experience with that BS. Then it came to me. All the guys I've worked with have been hired either by or with the input of female managers and employees. Anyone who gives off a skeezy vibe either self-eliminates, or we weed him out. Once, when I had a male boss, I had to put my foot down and tell him that no, we are not hiring that guy, he gives me the creeps. That boss did manage to hire a grade A jerk, but he was an equal opportunity jerk, and in fact worked better with me than with almost anyone else including a guy of very similar age and background.
