You only need few such guys in a mailing list to drive "normal" people away. Take a look on drobbins story is you want example. Ciaranm is technically brilliant jerk here - so Gentoo developers were not ready to send him away and continue without his help. Thus few "normal" people (if you even can call Daniel normal) were driven away.
I'm not saying all FOSS developers have such ideas ingrained. But few (may be even very few - it does not matter) of them certainly do - and if others choose them over "normal" people (and that's quite often the case) then "normal" people (including women) will be driven away.
