Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y During the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit, Richard M. Stallman of the Free Software Foundation (and the Superfluous Introduction Award goes to...) gave a keynote speech. Said keynote speech raised a few eyebrows in the Free software community because of a number of questionable remarks regarding women in technology. David "Lefty" Schlesinger, member of the GNOME Advisory Board and active in the mobile open source community, took issue with RMS' remarks and decided to call him out on it. The response he got was... Less than satisfying.

Wow, you're acting like an asshole.
Hope you don't mind, but you know what they say, when the shoe fits...

If you think I'm an asshole - that's fine with me. I can definitely see how the shoe would fit me. I know myself well enough to know that I'm not always particularly likeable.

No, it isn't.

Then I suggest you go back, and read again, because Stallman's reasoning is DEFINITELY in there. You may not like the way I put it, but it's definitely in there.
