Probably true.

You know what astounds me? We all grew up with sci-fi, accepting aliens,
monsters, and robots as equal peers. Similarly, ethnic minorities are fully
integrated into the high-tech community. Yet so many people in our world still
would like to deny women, homosexuals, etc. their fair rights.

Crazy IT industry we live in: it's okay if you are a Hindu robot from outer
space. But don't be female, unless you're a sex symbol, and don't be gay???

Now I've taken it too far off-topic. Sorry.
