In the News This topic comes up quite a lot on technology websites, but I generally try to steer clear from it as much as possible, since I'm not the one to talk about it (you know, with me being a man and all that), however, I feel it might be a good idea to just get my opinion out there and be done with it. The topic of women in IT is a hot-button issue, so let me just go out guns blazing: assuming women need special treatment, help, protection, and affirmative action is just as insulting and degrading as outright claiming women have no place in IT - maybe even more so.

And only actions can infringe rights not thinking or speaking.


Emphasis mine.

Are you for real? Go outside and tell everybody you meet on the street that your neighbor is a child molester. Not only will you (or rather your unfortunate neighbor) learn that just speaking can have devastating effects on other people lives, but you will also come to the painful realization that most jurisdictions have provisions against libel.
