I just saw a headline on LXER that reads:
Debian women may leave due to ‘sexist’ post
Truth be told here, in my opinion, any project that has to have a special team just for women already has much deeper issues than some stupid post on a mailing list. Gentoo has women developers I’m sure. They hold no special title the men do not hold and are in no special groups. I think Exherbo has at least one. If thats actually a man with a girl’s name I apologize and recommend you to Johnny Cash.
Regardless, I don’t know whats going on in Debian Land, but trouble is brewing. If Debian wants to reach out to female Linux users, which I find to be silly, there is no need for a special female swat team to wrangle them up for you. In all honesty, woman, like men, will use what they want. If that’s not Linux, then thats to bad. Stallman has spent almost two decades (if not more) trying to convert anyone, much less men. And, well, all its earned him is a reputation as a GNU gnut job.
Enjoy the Penguins!
