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.

Can anybody seriously get offended or hurt by RSM childish remark. If you become in "great dismay" after hearing such a lame comment, you probably live is some fantasy world where you haven't been desensitised by ordinary day-to-day life.

Spending time on this, calling is sexist, (commenting on article about it ;) ) etc. is giving him way to much credit for such a lame insignificant remark.

(by the way, does the GNU-logo purposefully resemble RSM?)
