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.

There are no women!

"I find this a nonsensical train of thought; how are women going to stand up for themselves in this case when there are no women to begin with?"

Is this a joke? Maybe the author should ask his friend Eugenia where all the FOSS women are, and why they don't stand up for themselves.
