really, why would anyone even _care_ if a contributor has boobs or not is something that eludes me.

With comments like this you're doing your best to feel women unwelcome here and in the wider open source community.

No, I'm saying that 'institutionalized job discrimination' is not a viable solution.
"With comments like this you're doing your best to feel women unwelcome here and in the wider open source community."
I'm sorry, do you have a substantive argument to justify how punishing a random qualified applicant based on his gender is a 'good thing', or do you plan to just stick to hand-waving and 'appeal to emotion' fallacy ? ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appeal_to_emotion )
Beside you are giving my comments way to much weight. I doubt that someone that read LWN is not already well involved in floss, and my comments, no matter how misunderstood or mis-characterized they may end-up, are very unlikely to turn a LWN reader away from floss.

It seems to me that men who have battled depression and been told by the world at large to "man up" are far more understanding of the women's cause to give just one example of such a minority.
