    I don't view people based on their skin or gender, it's pretty sad that you do. I wouldn't seek out a mentor based on them being exactly the same as me, I'd find that rather unproductive / not illuminating.

      It's about finding a community to belong to and having shared experiences. You can say whatever you want but the conference is happening so keep whining and attacking people so you can feel erect about your existence.

        Expressing concern for the values of a community is "whining and attacking" now. Grow up, R Z.

        Ultimately stuff like this is divisive, you all are too caught up in emotion to realize it.

      Holy shit, everyone, we've found him: the one man on earth who is colorblind and free of implicit biases. Put him on the hiring committee of every company, we need to learn from this guy

          Sean, Christina has given you reasons for women-only events. She's also given you every chance to answer a really simple question, and you haven't done it. Maybe take a moment to answer why white men need to be able to organize exclusionary events as well?

            I have answered the question several times. It would be presumtious for me to assume the struggles and needs of an affinity group I don't belong too - seems like that logic would make sense to a person so adament on defending the well being of other affinity groups such as yourself.

              So let me get this straight. There is a positive event for women. You are not a white man and you don't know why they would need their own conference, but for some reason felt it was important for you to tear this event down throughout this thread because of some abstract principle?

              And you still don't think women need their own events?
