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.

Imagine, a (GN)nix nerd who doesn't shower often or use a web browser thinks that people who don't use Emacs are unmanly and thinks religious people are stupid.

He isn't just some random unwashed, abrasive nerd. He is the founder of a fairly influential movement in the software industry.
