    I think an average man should be appalled that all those things were actually said in this community. They're quotes. These ARE men of designer news. People are smart enough to know "not all men..." The problem being called out is that enough of the men spout that type of misogyny and go unchallenged. Do you think that calling these comments out is more incendiary and divisive than people making them in the first place?

      Except...very little of what is being quoted on that site is actually misogyny.

        How many threads about women's and PoC issues are you going to come through with the "I'm a woman and see no diversity problems with this industry argument" before acknowledge maybe people aren't just making this up, Ix? You have your anecdotes, other people have theirs. You don't have to try and derail every conversation.
