In the News "An incident at the annual Python developer conference has led to allegations of sexism, death threats, the firings of two people, and - apparently - multiple DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks." Absolutely bizarre.

No problem, if you can make lightening fast assumptions about me the way Adria made about jokes and comments she half-heard behind her back (paranoid-stance ?) then it also tells me alot about you.

Adults, men or women, tend to make light jokes about everything. And yeah, women can be as dirty as men when it comes to this "subtle" subject. She decided to enforce the ruling as a spoke person, teacher, evangelist, blogist, whateverist, now she faces that some subjects just do not deserve so much fuzz about them.

And yeah, feminists tend to drop the brain for a good little fight. She was neither personally harassed not physically assaulted, the jokes were privately held, yet she jumped in with her two foot, splattering the mud all over. And it is obviously not her first instance in that matter.

Since she still haven't learn when to shut up and when to finger point and scream for "rape", then it struck her back really bad, like a boomerang. But it also made some damages nearby in the process. At least it showed everybody that some sort of "fundamentalism" can be really bad when wrongly applied.
