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.

chip on shoulder

Adria obviously has a chip on her shoulder. How can you infer anything sexual about "forking a repo"? I suppose you could say that forks are phallic and thus implies sexual penetration. Except that in this case, fork means to split. How does splitting refer to anything sexual. Too many people invent insults to fulfill their own fantasies.

I assume she thought they were punning.

Then I'm going to assume she's an idiot.
