I agree with you Judy! I share the same views. What I usually do when I
feel insulted (sensitivity is another issue, because it varies for every
person) by a man, whether its FOSS/IT related or not is to shrug them off
(because I know that people who do such things rarely give an apology and
should be considered as narrow minded people) and be thankful instead for
knowing wonderful men who are open minded and respects womens opinions
But I still have hope for change to happen to those men (and women too).
We might have a common gender, but we too have diverse personalities due to
the fact that we also came from different cultures with different beliefs.
