I believe you are mis-interpreting his words by putting your own biassed
words in his mouth.
My interpretation of what he said: do not put a woman in a position
merely for the sake of putting a woman in a position. Put the right
person for job (whether female or not) in the position.
And just to be clear: I fully agree with your statement (and sentiment)
as well that it would be great to see a female in such a position,
however, not at the cost of the community.
Re the sentiment that I sense, I (and I believe most men actually) would
love for the tech world as a whole to be less male dominated - however,
it seems to draw a stronger attraction in general for men compared to women.
I also believe we're all biassed in some way or another, the trick is to
understand and respect each other's biasses, as well as our own.
