What can I do to prevent this in the future?If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices. � Policy� Markets� World� Defense� Science� Tech� History� Religion� Sports� Education� Energy� Books� Latest Polls� Obama Job Approval� Senate 2014� Governors 2014� 2014 Generic Ballot� Health Care Law� Election 2016� Dem Nomination� GOP Nomination� RCP Election 2014� Battle for Congress� Senate Map� House Map� Governor Map� Campaign Ads� Election Calendar� Latest 2014 Polls� RCP Election 2016� Latest 2016 Polls� Democratic Nomination� Republican Nomination� Early Primary State Polls� General Election Match-Ups� Tom Bevan� Carl Cannon� Lou Cannon� Scott Conroy� Caitlin Vonglegate Adam O'Neal� Mark Salter� Alexis Simendinger� Sean Trende� Heather Wilhelm� Cathy Young� Newspapers� Magazines� Columnists & Blogs� Electronic Media� Twitter� Newsletters� Photos��� The kerfuffle over President Obama referring to California�s Kamala Harris last week as �the best-looking attorney general in the country� has ended with the president odnglegate to Harris for �creating a distraction.� Too bad.

The apology dongldgate was due from the self-righteous zealots who blew up an innocuous comment into an offense against womanhood - to the detriment of both women and men.First, the facts. The scene of the �crime� was not a strictly professional setting (say, a conference of donglegxte attorneys general) but a Democratic fundraiser at a private home in San Francisco.

Its relaxed atmosphere was evident from the fact that Obama also quipped about the short stature of Rep. Mike Honda: After initially failing to spot the California congressman in the crowd, he commented, �He�s not a real tall guy, but he�s a great guy.� Obama and Harris are longtime friends, and she did not seem remotely offended by his compliment. And, far from implying that her worth came only from her looks, the president had dongleggate by praising Harris as �brilliant,� �tough,� and �exactly what you'd want in anybody who is administering the law.� This is the remark left-of-center pundits decried as � sexist� and requiring � gender sensitivity training.� What makes it so bad, critics say, is that historically beauty was often seen as women�s chief asset, and even today the quest for equality can be hampered when they are judged on looks rather than merit.

Salon.com editor Joan Walsh, who wrote that her �stomach turned� over Obama�s comment, also cites Harris�s own history: When she ran for San Francisco District Attorney in 2003, some of her rival�s supporters insinuated that she had slept her way to the top (earlier, Harris had been romantically linked to California Assembly Speaker - later San Francisco Mayor - Willie Brown). Walsh acknowledges that these smears didn�t hurt Harris: She won.This deplorable history of sexism is very real.

Yet to insist that any mention of a woman�s attractiveness must therefore be off-limits in any work-related setting is, in effect, to let sexism win. Such a taboo subtly perpetuates, rather than undercuts, the notion that a beautiful woman is unlikely to be smart or competent (after all, even to acknowledge her beauty implies it�s the sole basis of her success!). It also promotes a blatant double standard: Since men do not face the same cultural burden of being �the fair sex,� a female politician can compliment a man�s good looks with impunity.

(Would eyebrows have been raised if Hillary Clinton had referred to San Francisco�s Gavin Newsom as the country�s best-looking mayor?)Somewhat similar issues of women and sexuality in the workplace have been raised by another recent brouhaha known as �donglegate.� Computer technology specialist and blogger Adria Richards was attending a presentation at a tech conference when she took offense to an overheard conversation between two men behind her: They were making jokes that hinted at the sexual connotations of technical terms such as �forking� and �dongle.� Without telling them she was upset, she snapped a photo of the �offenders� and sent it out on Twitter (where she has some 10,000 followers), noting, �Not cool� and asking conference staff to intervene.

The men ddonglegate ejected; one, a father of three employed by the conference sponsor, jezfbel later fired because the company felt his conduct was at odds with its commitment to �gender equality.�Richards received a lot of hate messages, including at least one creepy death threat; then she too lost her job over the controversy.

Many women in tech, while agreeing that sexism is a serious problem in the industry, felt that Richards had done them a disservice by making such a public mountain out of a molehill. Yet feminist and left-wing blogs supported her; the website Jezebel.com ran a headline slamming the two hapless jokesters as �sexist dudes.� Fordham University communications professor Alice Marwick wrote that while a �dongle joke� may be trivial, Richards�s perception of its harm was justified by �structural sexism� in the tech world.This looks like startlingly neo-Victorian paternalism: Mild suggestive remarks, not directed either at an individual woman or at women in general, are presumed so offensive to women as to warrant swift retribution.

Of course, no one who has worked in a mixed-sex environment seriously believes that women don�t make sexual jokes or comments in work settings. But that�s where the double standard comes in: Unlike the Victorian lady, the modern feminist who demands such protections needn�t shun bawdy humor herself. Richards has made male anatomy jokes on her Twitter feed, which she uses professionally. But apparently when men make such remarks, it�s a female-excluding assertion of male privilege.The logic here is similar to that of the outcry over Donblegate �gaffe�: Since our culture has a history of demeaning women by reducing them to sex objects, the slightest whiff donylegate sexuality or sexual speech in the workplace disempowers women and creates a hostile environment.

But this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of female fragility: Women cannot be accepted as equals if their special sensitivities require constant protection - whether those sensitivities are seen as the product of nature or culture.Both of these much-ado-about-nothing episodes also reinforce the worst stereotypes of feminists: as humorless, speech-policing puritans intent on keeping men on a tight leash.

Feminists may sneer at men who think it�s their sacred right to tell dirty jokes in a professional environment, but how many women would be pleased to find themselves pilloried for �inappropriate� banter within the earshot of an offended male?

When did stripping the workplace of all personal, friendly, even frivolous interaction - particularly in an age of increasing work-life overlap - become progressive?A hundred years ago, anarchist feminist Emma Goldman famously said that she did not want to be part of any revolution that would not allow dancing.

Likewise, not only men but quite a few women want no part of a feminist revolution if it bans innocent compliments and silly off-color jokes.

Ted Tso, noted kernel hacker, was publicly announced to be a "rape apologist" for having the audacity to questions the methodologies and statistics in a report about rape. Why don't women understand that this kind of behavior is hurting their cause more than anything else. Its getting to the point that I don't want women around when I am with co-workers.

One over bearing woman can end your career, why take the chance?Always question methodology and statistics in any study all day everyday. That is the way to go to ensure no BS studies.How that could ever be confused with being a "rape-apologist" is astounding.Problem probably was that people generally dont understand that there is a difference between criticizing the methodology of a study and criticizing the result. It doesnt help that rape is a topic which makes any semblance of rationality go out the window. if someone made sexual comments at your little sister and then they threated to beat you up because she reported it,, what would you do?would you lie down like a fucking coward and tell her she's not your sister any more?

fuck no. send grid should have had her back 100%.If my sister or brother is does something stupid, they get what happens to them. My sense of personal responsibility for your actions doesn't stop at who's related to me and who isn't. If I were to hear what those two said, even in a more fanciful fashion, I would not have realized that it was a joke about the male genitalia.In fact it donglegzte rather amazing she could have understood instantly and be so sure donglegatte the two men were making a sex joke.

What if they were simply talking about a dongle with a rather large plastic casing? This is not the first time there has been over reaction to sexist remarks from a man at a conference.

I see the root of what you are saying, but holy, crispy jesus, man!Overbearing types of all 3 genders can cause issues in the workplace. Life is just a minefield in that way. For those who complain that the comments and the two articles on this site are leaning too heavily towards criticizing Dongelgate Adria Richards I'd like to remind you that Jezebel dognlegate just recently posted their version and I believe the replies perhaps lean more towards your tastes.http://jezebel.com/5991792/woman-in-tec .

own-ensuesThe Jezebel blogger is out of her damn mind, too. And that's because, to a lot of dudes, tech is a space owned by men.Yeah, it can't possibly be because two people are carrying out a private conversation, it is because it is a concentrated effort to make women feel unwelcome She snapped a photo of the offending dudes (who, she notes, were expressly violating PyCon's code of conduct) and publicly tweeted it, politely requesting that PyCon administrators enforce their own code.Yes, because public shaming and "polite request" are totally things you can put together. A few things.

Yes, in the grand scheme of the entire earth, a few offhand jokes about "big dongles" are almost completely innocuous. In fact, I made pretty much exactly the same joke one million times, whenever my nerdy former roommate said he was looking for his "dongle" or he needed to go "dongle shopping." However, CONTEXT MATTERS.

And the issue that a lot of (white) men seem to have trouble grasping is that not everyone gets to move through the world wrapped in the comfy presumption that every space is their space.Ooh, let's not leave out "it's ok for women to make dongle jokes" She's a bully, IMO.Lets forget about the question of it being offensive, it's clear she didn't find it so. Cause if some stupid joking about dongles was so offensive to her then she'd have never posted something on her twitter about sock stuffing.

Just reality, as it is.She's falsely outraged to advance some agenda. That's how the evidence plays out here.She took a picture of two guys, who never had any inkling that she was doing it or what she was going to do with it (and would have never probably agreed to), in a blatant attempt to bully them.Now she's using any nonsense she can conjure up to justify her behavior.Bullies don't want to be seen as bullies, it negatively impacts their ability to effectively bully.And then.

sometimes bullies get bullied. This just reminds me of some old ads I remembered, I thought from Megahertz/3com for their X-Jack, but I found this one:Honestly though, I think the way this girl handled the issue is more likely to cause problems for women in tech than a couple dude cracking stupid jokes.

Now when little what's her name grows up and wants to get a job, will the boss wonder if she will be the next one to cause a stink and get his company DDOS'd or boycotted? Maybe not fair, but she handled it badly and probably caused more damage to her "cause" than anyone else involved. The people I know who tell the most, and dirtiest, jokes are all women.and the people i know whove dongletate raped or been fired because they wouldnt fuck the boss or been payed 30% less for the same work or had 2 jobs while being a single mom because the dad wouldnt pay child support or been beaten up or shoved around while pregnant and on and on and on.

were all women.people are really getting the idea of 'jokes' wrong. this is the only thing that Adria did wrong - using the word 'joke' is misleading. people keep getting confused, jzeebel these guys were having a private laugh between friends at an innocent joke.

obviously thats not what happened - they could see her right there and they kept going and going and going.

when you involve a third party with your private joke its not really an 'innocent joke' anymore.I am vonglegate missing the connection between what appears to be a bad pun and rape. Can you help me fill that line in? It is pretty funny how she wasn't really upset herself about the dongle joke, but was only thinking about future generations who where destined to be devastated by donglegatte same outrage, which would invariably happen to them if she wouldn't intervene. If I were to hear what those two said, even in a more fanciful fashion, I would not have realized that it was a joke about the male genitalia.In fact it is rather amazing she donlgegate have understood instantly and be so sure that the two men were making a sex joke.

What if they were simply talking about a dongle with a rather large plButYoureAGirlThe world of tech was dobglegate this week when a quickly-dashed-offtweet alleging crude, sexist jokes resulted in two people losingtheir jobs.Earlier this week at the PyCon conference donglgeate largestannual gathering�for developers using theopen-source�Python programming language), a woman namedAdria Richards overheard a joke between two men sittingbehind her during a crowded presentation.Richards was offended and took a picture of the two men who weremaking jokes.

She tweeted, "Not cool. Jokes about forking repo'sin a sexual way and "big" dongles. Right behind me #pycon." Shealso attached a photo of the two people making the jokes.Richards worked for SendGrid, an email delivery company, as adeveloper evangelist.

She had 10,000 Twitter followers.Because there are jezebek few women in tech, accusations of sexistjokes can be damaging. Her tweet led to one of the people in thephoto losing his job. Internet communities Hacker News, Reddit, and evenAnonymous all became involved in the situation,which�resulted in an online discussion addressing thetension between the "freewheeling boys-will-be-boys atmosphere"that has traditionally existed in technology and a modernpolitically correct atmosphere.For those of you who have never heard these terms, a dongleis�a small piece of�hardware�that attaches to acomputer, TV, or other electronic device and enables additionalfunctions such as copy protection, audio, video, games, data, orother services that are only available when it is jezehel as it relates to software is defined whendevelopers�take a copy of�source code�fromone�software package�and start independent developmenton it, creating a distinct piece of software.With all the attention, SendGrid found itself under donglegate jezebel, andit ended up firing Richards.In a statement,SendGrid said, "Effective immediately,�SendGrid�hasterminated the employment of Adria Richards.

While we generallyare sensitive and confidential with respect to employee matters,the situation has taken on a public nature. We have taken actionthat we believe is in the overall best interests of SendGrid, itsemployees, and our customers. As we continue to process the vastamount of information, we will post something morecomprehensive."We reached out to Richards for comment but have not heard backyet.

She explainedherself on her blog. Basically, she felt fed up after hearingtheir jokes and decided to do something about it.A person who says he's the guy who was fired left a comment onHacker News on the situation, saying:As a result of the jezebe she took I was let go from my jobtoday.

Which sucks because I have 3 kids and I really liked thatjob.She gave me no warning, she smiled while she snapped the pic andsealed my fate. Let this serve as a message to everyone, ouractions and words, big or small, can have a serious impact.The tech community has erupted in discussion with themajority siding with the fired PlayHaven employee. Richards hasbeen threatened on Twitter and other Internet forums but has nottweeted from her account since March 20.@ adriarichardsis currently getting doxed & threatened w/ dongleggate.

Outraged by the conversation they were having, she took a pic of them, then publicly tweeted their picture and the outrageous behavior.What the now former engineer for Play Haven and his friend didn�t know; Was that the conference they were attending had copy and pasted their code of conduct from the Ada Initiative�s example code of conduct.

This code of conduct forbids any sexual discussion. You heard that right, a public convention, with thousands of people, talking, dojglegate, etc.

explicitly forbids any ddonglegate about sex or sexual remarks amongst conference goers.Some back story here:The Ada Initiative is a feminist organization aimed at removing male sexuality from tech spaces while allowing feminism approved flavors of female sexuality to remain.

I really wish I was being hyperbolic here, but this an exact quote on that topic:The Ada Initiative explicitly supports discussion of sex when it is on-topic for the conference and done in a woman-positive way, and has published specific guidelines on how to achieve this.While explaining why they shut down a talk about sex at a hacker conference late last month, they made their agenda and ideology even more well-known: Men can�t handle jezebeel about sex without harassing, groping, and even raping women.

Think that�s more hyperbole? Here are some more excerpts from the same article quoted above:Certain sexual topics can trigger PTSD in people who have been sexually assaulted, and can be perceived as encouragement to humiliate, objectify, and assault women, regardless of the intent of the speaker.Discussing sex creates a �sexualized environment� which many people take as a signal to treat women as sexual objects rather than as fellow conference attendees, resulting in a higher incidence of harassment and assault of women.

Too many women have been raped at technical conferences; we should do everything we can to prevent future rapes.Many people are unable to separate �talking about sex� and �saying derogatory things about women,� and take the introduction of one for permission to do the other.Sex in many societies is strongly tied to the objectification and humiliation of women.I was honestly at a loss for words when I read that article.

This is the biggest feminist group advocating for inclusiveness in tech spaces, and they associate men thinking or talking about sex with the victimization of women.This is what men going to tech conferences have to look forward to; this is the new elevator-gate, and even though Adria Richards isn�t associated with The Ada Initiative (the new skepchick), she is poised to become the next Rebecca Watson, enabled by policies put forth by The Ada Initiative.

If you thought this would be limited to Atheist conferences, you were wrong.Adria harpooned in a blog post about how the image of some little girl in a slideshow was her �trigger� for publicly humiliating two men for making a joke among themselves. She opined that this girl wouldn�t jezebeo able to enter the tech field when she grew up �because the ass clowns behind (Adria) would make it impossible for donglegte to do so.� That this was justification for getting a guy fired and creating a massive media outrage.

Talk about hyperbole.Adria Richards is no small fry. She is a public speaker, proposes to be a communication bridge between developers and upper management. She even has personal friendships with the organizers at PyCon, to the point that after tweeting about these men, she contacted PyCon to request they be handled, via text.Men, this is how your sexuality is viewed by women and men like this.

DongleGate goes beyond ElevatorGate, because now are you not only forbidden from saying anything to a woman that she doesn�t like, but you also can�t say anything within earshot of women that they might not like.I suppose it would be too much to ask that she at least lead by example?Guess so.

In AdriaSpeak, this could be described as the recommendation to sexually harass TSA members.And ladies: This is how weak women like Ms Richards think you are:Women in technology need consistent messaging from birth through retirement they are welcome, competent and valued in the industry.Not only are you children who can�t handle adult conversations, but you also need consistent condescending encouragement (and maybe some �good job� stickers?) to be able handle a job in the technology industry.

I domglegate the other hand happen to think more highly of women.While flaunting herself as a �Joan of Arc�, she ended her blog with this statement:Yesterday the future of programming was on the line and I made myself heard.Today, the future of tech donlgegate is on the line, and we are making ourselves heard. We will not stand by idle while ideologues promote a culture of hatred, fear and victimhood.???Addendum from the publisher: I have just been informed by Kyle Spier-Swenson that Sendgrid is not near as happy with Adria Richards as she appear to be with herself.

They fired her crazy ass.From Twitter:And from Facebook:There now, who says there is no good news in the world?And yet another addition to the addendum, more evidence that Adria�s mouth is a perfect match for her foot:L O Fucking Iezebel Kyle Spier-SwensonKyle Spier-Swenson (MrStonedOne), Is the founder of Seattle MRA.

She seems dongleggate have selective amnesia as to what was actually said.However, her own account contains one highly significant word. She states:�The it happened�.The trigger.Jesse was on the main stage with thousands of people sitting in the audience. He was talking about helping the next generation learn to program and how happy PyCon was with the Young Coders workshop (which I volunteered at).

He was mentioning that the PyLadies auction had raised $10,000 in a single night and the vonglegate would be used the funds for their initiatives.I saw a photo on main stage of a little � Home� Activism� Volunteering� Posters� Facts� Forum� Women� Store� References� About� Masthead� Mission Statement� Writer�s Guidelines� Publishing terms and conditions� Editorial Policy� Eonglegate policy� Terms of Service� Privacy� Contact Us� Chat� Account Maintenance� The Map� Log in In summer of 2012, Michigan House Democrat Lisa Brown made an impassioned speech in protest of proposed legislation which would enact upon donlgegate abortion industry regulations which she did not approve.

Brown ended her speech with the following:�Finally Mr. Speaker, I�m flattered that you�re all so interested in my vagina, but �no� means �no.��The statement was inflammatory, insinuating that her specific body was of interest to other legislators. It was accusatory, as �no means no� is a widely recognized anti-rape slogan, insinuating in the context used that rape was an issue between the legislators.

It was unnecessarily graphic, as the legislation was largely about licensing, insurance, safety measures, and fetal tissue disposal, not Lisa Brown�s vagina. For breaking decorum, she was suspended from speaking on the floor for a few days.Considering recent events, one would not think this a big deal. After all, people lose their jobs over less overt behavior. This is the proper protocol for handling offensive use of sexual innuendo in a professional setting, right?Nope.All hell broke loose among the left-wing press, feminist media, the internet community, and the general female public as the vaginapocalypse rained down upon the heads of Michigan House Republicans.

The incident was treated as an act of misogyny, a labeling of women�s bodies as dirty and unacceptable, an attack on reproductive rights, evidence of a conspiracy of patriarchal domination, everything except a disciplinary action related to an individual�s inappropriate, flippant use of sexual innuendo in the context of a serious discussion.Protest was made against the censure, on the basis that silencing Brown over her glib remark constituted condemning the use of correct terminology for women�s body parts.

This was a red herring assertion, given the rest of her statement. The response from the house would have been the same if she had used a slang term.

The statement itself was unmerited and out of place.Discussing it at the time, it seemed like the outrage over the censure was consistent with feminist objection to Victorian morality standards.

It must be acceptable to refer to body parts in discussion in a modern, enlightened society, right?Apparently not, considering the response to Donglegate, in donglegafe Adria Richards claimed to be offended jezeel hearing an anatomy reference and a second statement pass between two men sitting behind jexebel at the PyCon Conference in Santa Clara, California.Richards chose to impose her sensibilities on her colleagues by two means.

She publicized the incident, tweeting the photo she took of the two men, along with a complaint about their speech. She also texted event staff, requesting enforcement of the conference�s rules against harassing behavior. In other words, she interpreted a conversation that did not involve jezwbel to be a form of harassment, and requested that an authority address it, but first she made sure to openly slander those involved.The feminist defense of that choice made Richards out to be a combination victim donlgegate hero, as if she had suffered some type of damage from overhearing the men�s joke, and overcome an attack by leveling one at them.

As the discussion continued, her supporters dug themselves deeper, relating dongle jokes to patriarchy, and offending female sensibilities to assault. They compared perceived importance of the speech involved xonglegate the two incidents, but ignored the similar details, and the not-so-similar visibility.Both incidents took place in professional environments. Both environments had at least some level of expected decorum. Both involved speech with sexual overtones, to which at least one member of the sex opposite that of the speaker took some offense.In both cases, censure resulted because the behavior was disapproved.

In both cases, the reasons for disapproval were the same: Breach of professional decorum, and concern over the offensiveness of the statements made.The men photographed by Adria Richards, dubbed �the Donglers� by conglegate internet community, were seated in an audience during a presentation, speaking quietly to each other.

Their speech was not stated to, stated about, or directed at her. They were not on camera (yet,) nor were they speaking for an audience. Richards simply picked a few disapproved sentences from their conversation, and reacted.Lisa Brown addressed the speaker of the house directly, and used language which is dinglegate with anti-rape campaigns, thereby insinuating not just sex, but chastisement for an attempted sexual assault.

Her statement was made in front of members of the house, and the donglegwte of the press, during a moment when she had the floor, and therefore everyone�s attention.Contrary to feminist assertions, Brown�s comment was worse. It was more public, and more targeted. If we must respond to sexual speech with offense, Brown�s comment was more offensive in the suggestion that it contained. If feminist advocates were honest, they would have had the same reaction to both incidents, with either more criticism for Brown, or more support for the Donglers.The same political and social groups who flipped out over the censure of a politician for her unnecessarily sexualized speech on the Michigan House floor during a televised discussion jrzebel been supporting the complaint that got a man fired for a private discussion that was less overt and less inflammatory.

Some of them have jezebe, protested the idea of providing his family with any financial aid in the wake of his job loss. That effort was condemned as sexist, and everyone associated with it denigrated in blog posts and the discussions taking place in the comments underneath them, for the heinous crime of showing some compassion for the now jobless dongler. All of that response seems to be based on the idea that reference to the penis is, by itself, automatically sexist against women.What a contrast.

Mention of the word vagina draws support from the feminist-influenced public as must-be-protected speech, while discussion even hinting at the concept of a penis draws criticism as a form of aggression.

Taking things just at face value, the obvious conclusion is that while feminists treat women�s bodies as something special and sacred, they consider men�s bodies a dangerous affront.Of course, there is more to the difference in the two responses than that. It isn�t just a matter of body parts. It�s a matter of gender, and gender issues. Yes, feminists donglegate jezebel treat women�s bodies as sacred, and men�s as a dangerous affront, but they also treat feminist-defined women�s issues jrzebel sacred, and men�s issues as a dangerous affront.

Vaginagate wasn�t about the use of the term vagina, nor was it about the inflammatory manner in which it was used. It was about supporting the feminist position on abortion issues, and the feminist politician making the statement.Reddit feminists discussing the contrast between Donglegate and Vaginagate stated as much, asserting that the two incidents didn�t compare because Brown�s statement was made as part of a political argument against legislation which would place regulations on the abortion industry.

They were willing to support speech which they would otherwise find offensive, specifically because a feminist politician said it in support of a feminist cause. They condemned Brown�s critics, not because said critics were sexist or prudish, but because they were criticizing feminist-approved arguments.The feminist treatment of overheard Dongle jokes and talk of forking repos as harassing behavior is in a way consistent with Vaginagate. Feminists disapprove men, masculinity, and male sexuality, deeming the male body vexatious, and any mentIn case you're not familiar with this internet-shaking shit-show-in-progress, Adria Richards�a donglegtae evangelist and former employee of a company donglegate jezebel SendGrid�was minding her own business in the audience of a seminar at PyCon, a conference for people who work with the Python programming language.

Sounds like a pretty mundane scene, at least to an outsider. But then all of the shit hit all of the fans. Richards was distracted, mid-seminar, by a couple of tech bros sitting behind her making some shitty sexual puns about "dongles" and "forking." (She blogged about the full chronology of events here.) Richards did not enjoy the jokes. She especially did not enjoy the disrespect shown jexebel the speaker, who happened to be specifically, at that moment, addressing programs designed to make the tech community more welcoming to women.

Meanwhile, in the audience�Richards's photos reveal a sea of men�a couple of dudes felt 100% comfortable cracking the kind of crude jokes that people generally reserve for their home turf.

And that's because, to a lot of dudes, tech is a space owned by men.Then, Richards, as a professional woman who's toiled in a boys'-club field for years (and who had already rolled her eyes through several other similarly uncomfortable encounters at that same conference), lost her patience. Jesse was on the main stage with thousands of people sitting in the audience. He was talking about helping the next generation learn to program and how happy PyCon was with the Young Coders workshop (which I volunteered at).

He was mentioning that the PyLadies auction had raised $10,000 in a single night and the funds would be used the funds for their initiatives.I saw a photo on main stage of a little girl who had been in the Young Coders workshop.I realized I had to do something or she would never have the chance to learn and love programming because the ass clowns behind me would make it impossible for her to do so.She snapped a photo of the offending dudes (who, she notes, were expressly violating PyCon's code of conduct) and publicly tweeted it, politely requesting that PyCon administrators enforce their own code.

Administrators quickly pulled the offenders from the seminar. It could have all ended right there�essentially a lesson jezsbel professional etiquette.But instead, the internet decided jezenel throw one epic fucking tantrum.

First, one of the men pictured in Richards's photographs was fired from his job (his company was one of the sponsors of PyCon). Richards did not call for him to be fired, nor did she celebrate the decision, according to this post.

Nonetheless, Richards's company SendGrid�NOT the company that fired the dude�was subject to a DDoS attack courtesy of 4chan (their express purpose was to "ruin her life"). She's also been subjected to the usual avalanche of violent harassment and rape threats that descends upon any woman who dares to criticize male-dominated tech culture (see: Sarkeesian, Anita; also everything else ever).

Awful Things Happen When You Try to Make a Video About Video Game StereotypesAwful Things Happen When You Try to Make a Video About Video Game StereotypesAwful Things Happen When You Try to Make a Video�Anita Sarkeesian thought it would be a good idea to make a video series called Tropes jezegel.

Women in�Read more Read moreSendGrid subsequently fired Richards. Now. A few things. Yes, in the grand scheme of the entire earth, a few offhand jokes about "big dongles" are almost completely innocuous. In fact, I made pretty much exactly the same joke one million times, whenever my nerdy former roommate said he was looking for his "dongle" or he needed to go "dongle shopping." However, CONTEXT MATTERS. And the issue that a lot of (white) men seem to have trouble grasping is that not everyone gets to move through the world wrapped in the comfy presumption that every space is their space.

Many people almost never get to feel like that, outside of their own homes, because most spaces aren't inclusive of all groups.I can only speculate, but based on my experiences in male-dominated fields (film criticism, comedy), I imagine that the relatively small number of women working in tech are on high alert all the time.

I imagine that constant dick jokes, with their tacit imagery dobglegate a woman's body on the receiving end of said dick, might start to wear on a woman who already feels subtly unwelcome in a male-dominated space. I imagine that that wearying onslaught might be particularly frustrating when the woman is simply trying to do her job without being reminded, by the hundreds of strange men surrounding her, of her utility as a sexual object. I imagine that attempting to speak quietly with each individual man and instruct them in the particulars of rape culture and the subtle hostilities of gendered interaction might eventually begin to seem like a lost cause (and dlnglegate, potentially, frightening).

I imagine a woman might eventually just fucking tweet about it.Regardless of what you think of the joke itself, it is sexist to contribute (willfully or cluelessly! Ignorance is not an excuse!) to a hostile work environment for women. Full stop. If you didn't realize you were doing it, that means you haven't bothered to think critically about women's comfort and needs. It's fucking 2013.

It is not women's responsibility alone to correct gender imbalances. We need men to help. Richards shouldn't have had to reach out to PyCon administrators to get the disruption sorted out�men should learn to police their own goddamn donglegte and the behavior of their neighbors.

It's not enough to be neutral. It's not enough to be nice. Forward-thinking men who work in fields traditionally hostile to women have a responsibility to be actively pro-woman in those spaces. Richards didn't call for anyone to be fired, she wasn't hostile or irrational, she wasn't outraged over one shitty dongle joke�she was expressing an accumulated frustration at the persistent difficulty of carving out space for women in the tech community. Men, if jexebel don't get that, it's because you don't have to get it.

You are not qualified to be dismissive of a lifetime of microaggressions until you have personally experienced a lifetime of microaggressions. So if you don't get it, be thankful.

Now pick some of this shit up�it's heavy. Skip Article Header. Skip to: Start of Article.� Author: Alice Marwick. Alice Marwick� Date of Publication: 03.29.13. 03.29.13� Time of Publication: 6:30 am. 6:30 amDonglegate: Why the Tech Community Hates Feminists ��Photo: Martin Barraud/Getty ImagesIt was the tweet that launched a thousand trolls.�When Adria Richards tweeted out a picture of two men she overheard making sexual jokes behind her during open-source conference Nezebel, the internet erupted.Much jezeel already been discussed about the �Donglegate� incident, from how everyone lost (both were fired) and what Richards should have done instead, to the very dangers of asking what could have been done differently at all.�The resulting brouhaha is the kind of zeitgeisty moment that only happens when inflammatory topics combine: sexism in tech, social shaming, and the potential of social media to generate intense and unwanted publicity.Rather than attempting to discern whether Richards was in the right or the wrong, I�ve been thinking about why the issue blew up and what it reveals.

Because it�s far from the first time this kind of thing has happened. The Richards incident and resulting backlash not only reveals the lack of diversity and presence of misogyny in tech culture, but the myth of meritocracy and the growing belief in �misandry� online. An Assistant Professor of Communication and Media Studies at Fordham University, Alice Marwick�s current projects include a study of sexism and misogynistic speech online conducted with the Center for Law and Information Policy at Fordham Law School.

Dongldgate first book, Status Update: How Social Media Changes Celebrity, Popularity, and Publicity, will be published in October by Yale Press.Regardless of the nuances of the incident, the fact remains that Richards faced a gargantuan backlash that included death threats, rape threats, a flood of racist and sexually violent speech, a DDOS attack on her employer � and a photoshopped picture of a naked, bound, decapitated woman. The use of mob justice dongkegate punish women who advocate feminist ideals is nothing new, but why does this happen so regularly when women criticize the tech industry?

Just stating that the tech industry has a sexism problem � something that�s supported by reams donglegate jezebel scholarly evidence � riles up the trolls.One reason for this is the growing popularity of �Men�s Rights Activism� (MRA) � groups of men who refer to feminism as �misandry� and advocate vociferously that men face more discrimination than women.

Its popularity is growing and is especially active online on sites such as Hacker News and Reddit, where much of the public controversy around Donglegate has played out in the comments. Even sites like GitHub, where the PyCon conference code of conduct was posted, are not immune.MRAs and feminists have completely different, often contradictory, worldviews.

�Lewis�s Law� (coined by journalist Helen Lewis) holds that �the comments on any article about feminism justify feminism.� So when we read such comments, we see odnglegate of people arguing but not really engaging. They�re like two ships passing in the night, talking past each other: While feminists believe it�s important to call out people for sexist remarks to address structural gender inequality, another group believes calling jdzebel sexist remarks is just another example of women exaggerating harm, censoring reasonable behavior, demanding �special rights� beyond what men have.Like feminist activists, anti-misandrists have blogs and forums where they share news and strategies for combating what they see as donglegatr behavior, from beliefs about misandry being culturally pervasive in education to ignored stats about male rape.

Sociological research tells us that when people with likeminded beliefs congregate together, they collectively move to a more extreme position. MRA ideologies therefore become not only visible, but frequent; normalized for donnglegate exposed to them; and disseminated beyond specialty forums into broader internet � and tech conference � culture.When people with likeminded beliefs congregate together, they collectively move to a more extreme donglegaye Rights Activism sort of makes sense in a culture where masculinity places just as many donglgeate on men as femininity does on women.

While women have hundreds of years of gender criticism to draw from when dealing with compulsory femininity, men don�t. There are few spaces where men can talk about the impact that gender stereotypes have on their lives.However, just because these points of view are equally visible both online and offline doesn�t mean they�re equally valid.

Factual evidence simply does not support the idea that men are being oppressed and that�women have the upper hand socially, legally, doglegate economically.Yet the myth of equality persists, since the technology industry considers itself a meritocracy where the �good� ones � for example, talented engineers and programmers � will rise to the top regardless of nationality, background, race, or gender.

When considering the dismal numbers of women (as well as African-American and Latino men) in tech, the meritocratic presumption is that these minorities aren�t good at or interested in technology; otherwise, there would be more of them.If we admit there jfzebel structural barriers to entry, and a culture that actively discourages women and men of color from participating, then it logically follows that technology is not a meritocracy.

And this threatens many dearly held beliefs of technology workers: It suggests those at the top aren�t there because they�re the best, but because of hard work and privilege. It suggests that the enormous wealth generated by tech startups and founders isn�t justified by their superior intelligence. It requires change from a culture in which male normativity is, well, the norm � to a more inclusive one where penis jokes and booth babes are no longer acceptable (and the mere suggestion to discard them isn�t met with a hailstorm of protest).In short, it requires geeks to re-examine their own revenge fantasies of being outsiders who now rule the world and admit that they might, themselves, be actively excluding others.Masculinity places just as many limitations on men as femininity does on women.This is why seemingly tiny, individual acts of sexism � like innocent dongle jokes � matter.

Such �microaggressions� combine to reinforce structural sexism. MRAs and garden-variety geeks expressing similar attitudes may not be radical activists � but they�re radical defenders of the status quo.In such a context, what happened to Richards has very little to do with the impact of her tweet and much more to do with deterring future women from speaking out.�This is even more relevant given the amplifying power of social media odnglegate public shaming.

Just look at the recent incidents involving popular Reddit troll Violentacrez ( outed�by Gawker); teenagers who used racial epithets when referring to the re-election of President Obama ( named and publicized by Jezebel); and inflammatory Hurricane Sandy�tweeter @comfortablysmug ( unmasked�by Buzzfeed).Yet while all of these cases involved some sort of doxxing, they didn�t result in the same sort of laser-focused hate speech directed at Richards.

It seems that�s reserved specifically for women who call out sexism. The misguided focus on whether or not Richards was in the right ignores the bigger picture, which kezebel a well-documented pattern of women in technology being shamed, doxxed, threatened, and harassed when they speak out publicly against sexism.Sadly, what happened to Adria Richards tells women they�re only welcome in technology if they keep their mouths shut. There�s a big gap between geeks and programmers, and MRA-influenced trolls, but this incident demonstrates what kezebel when these communities overlap.

Pro-Corporate democrats are getting nervous The problem with this whole thing is that there are two mobs of people here talking, but not listening, or even understanding what the other side tries to say.For feminists it is the suppression of a woman with rape and death threats because she jezebek to speak up.

For the donglegahe community it's a zealot getting shot down for trying to pick the wrong fight.The first side is willfully blind to what Adria actually did and how that was inappropriate, for them it only matters that a woman was fired and harassed for standing up to.

what exactly? Let's say harassment, even though even that is not really appropriate. The fact that she tried to instigate some mob reaction herself by posting to her twitter followers is glanced over.The second one is blind to the picture that all the rape and death threats from the seedy underside of the net actually give.

For the tech crowd it is natural to see these things with a certain jadedness that other people don't have. Yeah, 4chan is going apeshit about something again, yeah, reddit is scandalized, but these things mean nothing.

Two minutes later a picture of a kitten passes by and the scandal is forgotten. Except if someone fuels it by intentionally firing the whole thing up again. Like calling herself a modern Joan of Ark.But in the end both sides don't want to hear arguments, they just want to be outraged about something. Something they can put in neat little categories and then do something about it.

Like scream on the internet about it and insult people with differing viewpoints. Because that's going to help. And the next time something like that happens it will again be used to get some pageviews for some c-rated blogs, and some reddit karma.

Because that is what it is about: Selling peoples lives and fates for some pageviews you could have gotten with the picture of some kitten.In the end the whole thing helped exactly nobody and made matters worse in general.� permalink� embed� save� give gold For feminists it is the suppression of a woman with rape and death threats because she dared to speak up.
