Parent article: Yet another male perspective on women in free software
esr really does have a way about him, sometimes. I can't quite put my
finger on what most annoys me about him -- the paternalistic tone of his
writings, the way The Hacker's Dictionary has been morphed to fit his
worldview (e.g., open-ended statements that, "clearly," are applicable to
all hackers; a more objective, somewhat less forcibly inclusive manner
might help), or... well, I dunno. But I find the essay linked to, above,
to be particularly unpleasant. Perhaps it's the overt objectification of
the very women who are attempting to prove they're not objectified. But
Share and enjoy... I think not.
