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.

If you read carefully, you'll notice that the guy got fired AFTER an internal investigation might have concluded that's not the first occurence of misconduct, internal or external like in PyCon. We do not have the full background of the story and no detail regarding the investigation procedure, we can however be somewhat confident that if the company decided to split from this coder, they had enough evidence that side them.

The guy can be really a fine one, good coder, nice bearded employee with good mood. But if a company decided to entrust a way of conduct beyon reasonable, with little freedom for mistake and/or misconduct, they are also free to do so. Employee got fired for using a forgotten consumer's 1$ coupon.

I'm not mysoginic, but the girl behavior is at full fault : instead to face back the two guys with her feminist pride and tell them to go fuck themself (or any more appropriate diplomatic stance) she smiled at them (obviously already having planned the public shaming) took a pic and disapeared, without giving them a chance to correct themselves.

She saw a bug in their code, and decided to release it in production !

She's at full fault because this misconduct can be applyed again in another case to side her case when she needs it. She showed a really untrustful conduct. If she is so much about sexism, she showed no great move from the woman side.

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.
