Has the opposite effect as http://www.techiesproject.com/
This I can definitely respect.
Two sides of the same coin. It's important to celebrate diversity, a la techiesproject.
But it is also important to make visible the discrimination women face that makes the the techiesproject necessary in the first place.
This doesn't highlight cases where women are discriminated against. It's personal opinions on a website that has no power other than that you give it.
I see dudes stating their sexist opinions, which is a form of harassment and discrimination to me.
The title of this tumblr generalizes males. Mic drop
Said the person who's not the target of harassment.
Sorry, I meant to comment on the post above yours (I'm on mobile). Sorry you feel harassed. That sucks. I guess this tumblr feels like blanket harassment to others... Surely, on a totally different level though.
I don't feel harassed, as I am not a woman. But I can empathize, and acknowledge the fact that this place can be hostile towards women, as shown by this tumblr.
...and what if I told you it's not hostile at all?
How can I get on your mailing list to make sure I am represented next time you speak for all women?
"I don't feel harassed, as I am not a woman." Pretty sexist remark.
Did this thread rustle your jimmies? Oops, looks like words in an imaginary place have power or something.
Where did I say it "rustled my jimmies"? Stop projecting.
You've replied to this thread 12 times in 2 hours. You're full on mad, bro.
He mad still.
I'm also not really convinced you know what "projecting" means.
You are free to imagine alternate realities all you like.
IBM Watson's Tone Analyzer says you're a liar, dude.
Good for Watson.
Look, to drop the veil and come at this honestly for a second, I really don't think that if we are to exist in a community an appropriate response to someone telling you they feel uncomfortable is for you to tell them to suck it up. It does nothing to further a line of dialogue and denies them their right to own their feelings.
Given the tone of condescension and indignation with which you slather your posts, I feel like you have more than enough mental capacity to understand why saying something like "More talented men on Dribbble than women, evidential." could make women here feel uncomfortable.
, I really don't think that if we are to exist in a community an appropriate response to someone telling you they feel uncomfortable is for you to tell them to suck it up.
But that is exactly what is happening in this thread to people who take issue with the title of the site being too generalized. It's pure hypocrisy.
I never said that. You on the other hand did. To point it out as hypocrisy proves that you understand my point.
Personally, I do think the name of the tumblr probably could have been worded better. In a kind of tangential argument, I feel like what we refer to as "the patriarchy" is probably poorly named as well.
If you really want to continue this conversation, message me on twitter. This is a waste of space on DN.
just checked that out. its a neat idea, but it reported everything I tried (a bunch of slack convos) as mostly anger... might need a little calibration
